Should be an interesting project. Are possible hinge points strong? Is there a window and, if so, does it have an emergency release?

Google Munchkin Safety Toddler Bed Rail. Straps under the mattress, easy to put on/off.

How about something like is adjustable width pet gate.

Here are some more carried by Target one of which has vertical wooden bars

I know, I know, it's a pet gate, But the same company that manufactures pet gates also manufactures the same gates for toddlers and charge more money for them.

I bought a similar pet gate to pen the family Chihuahua in the bathroom when we were not at home. I didn't use the wall attachments because it friction fit tight enough between the door jambs. I purchased mine as a pet gate and found the same exact one in a 2 pack at BJ's Wholesale Club sold as child gates in two different colors.

Our lower bunk is a futon mattress setup that can be easily removed. We set up a pack-n-play play pen in its place which worked well. You can also use it outside other times.

How about a tight knit netting than can be installed with some good sized cup hooks. They might roll off the mattress but not crash onto the floor.

We used a toddler bed rail for a few years on the top bunk. Something like This Munchkin. Find one the size that fits your opening and you'll be set.
