Bed Supports
« on: November 13, 2015, 01:57:10 PM »
I was wondering if anyone has taken the "Back-Saver" style bed supports off a newer Fleetwood (a 2004 Niagara is the parts camper I have access to) and put them on an older model, such as our Timberlake (2000).  The beds are the same size so I wondered if I could remove the supports and put them on easily.  Before I started a project like that I figured I would check to see if anyone else had already done this/tried this and if it there are any "watch outs".

Tied,

Do you have any pictures?  I would think you could do anything you want.....it's just a matter of how much modification is needed/you want to do  :thumbup:

I could get pictures of the existing supports, there are plenty of those online.  I don't have pictures of the back saver versions, I know there are plenty online.  The parts camper is quite a distance away, but, I am free to get parts whenever I get to it.  My plan now is to remove them when I get there after taking plenty of careful measurements/pictures.  If possible (and I see no reason why it won't be) - I plan to take the entire "bunk" wood from each side.

From the pictures, it appears the supports are the same, just a different mount under the bunk that has the "special" bracket that allows them to click into place.

It will likely be a few months before I get a chance to put them in.  Once, I start that project, I will take pictures.

Thanks!
