Referring to the factory's features chart you will see there's a factory option for couch/bunk in the spirit deluxe.However, most owners that have such have modified their deluxe to their desired arrangement. Perhaps someone that has done it will guide you to their pictures.
Edited my original post, now that I've read the referenced page.

My first Casita was a 1986 16ft. spirit deluxe with a side couch/bunk where the side dinette would be.
We could sleep 4. 2 in the back , 2 on the side, and we still had the bath/shower in the front.
Because of the top bunk, we did not have the large sliding window that comes with the sd with the side dinette.
It had a small window like the one in the bathroom, turned sideways.
I would not recommend an adult sleeping in the top bunk, it is not that strong in my opinion.
We ended up removing the top bunk cushion/plyboard and just using the side bed as a couch.
If you order the side bunk option, it can not be made back into a dinette without making new cabinets.
The lower cabinet with the side bunk option is one solid piece.
We bought our 16ft. used and would have rather had the side dinette instead, since it could be made into a bed if needed.
Sorry I don't have a picture, we sold the 16 ft. to buy a 17ft. sd.

Because of the top bunk being hinged to the wall. So, if you ordered one you would have to specify no upper cabinets or window above the side bed.
The freedom deluxe has the swivel chairs on the side, is that what you wanted?

I apologize if I misunderstood your request. Did you mean a unit that has no bathroom (standard) and has a couch/bunk where the bathroom is?

Casita does still offer the spirit deluxe with the side bunk option, but I don't think they would install the bunk bed above the swivel chairs in the freedom.
Do you really want the swivel chairs that come with the freedom or do you want the spirit model with the side bench seat/ seats?

If It were me, I would get the spirit with the side dinette that makes into a single bed.
We took my 16 year old nephew on a 5000 plus mile trip and he slept well on the side dinette/bed.
Maybe you could call casita to see if there is a spirit or a freedom in your area to look at.
You may find the spirit to be comfortable enough to compromise.
