I see you decided to go without diagonal frame on front.
Was original camper build this way? Plywood will carry shearing forces, but it has its limit.

Gussets will be added tying the rear bottom side of the bunk and the front wall together in the future. And yes I am copying the build of the existing camper so the aluminum siding will fit with minimal modifications. Thanks for posting!
