I fabricated the bracket to line up with 2 x 2 bed platform support members (stiffeners) and also, if I recall correctly, I did have to "miss" something on the right side of the trolley. I think it would work just fine if the spacing was even, as long as you get the cylinders to line up with the bed platform stiffeners. I thought it was best to have the lift cylinders push in a straight line and not on an angle.
I am pleased to report we are very happy with the lifts, and also with reducing the bed size to a residential queen. Gives us more "walk-around" room and a much more comfortable mattress that takes standard queen sheets. You just have to be careful about mattress height, my new one is 8" and it slides under the wardrobe just fine.
Happy to answer any questions if it would help!
