devon caravette pull out bed

Post by lobie » Mon Apr 02, 2018 9:58 am

Hi Guys

not a split screen question but Vw bay window devon related

I have a caravette pull out bed with the 2 leg to support it unfortunately there is nothing to stop it being pull completely out, the appears to be 2 metal tracks in the piece over the engine bay but the bits that fit the other part are missing and I have no idea what they look like so cant fabricate or find any

hope this all makes sense and someone can help


many thanks

Martin

Pictures from Kevin Jackson...
The fittings are tapered.
They interlock. They are the same on top and bottom.
If you have one/two need to make a similar pair.

Another added with widths..

..and length..

Kevin has a bay Devon Caravette and says the bracket you are missing acts both as a stop and also pulls another piece of plywood above the drawers to make the bed up.Image

Bracket fits in cut outImageImage
