What I've done...

Please note that I'm not entirely sure these are the best ones to use; I MAY have over-engineered this.
Gas Props:
Amazon.com: Suspa C16-08054 C1608054 20" Gas Prop, Quantity (2), Force is 100 Lbs Per Prop and Force Per Set is 200 Lbs, Camper Rear Window, Tonneau Cover Lift Supports, Window Lift Support, Struts: Automotive
Ball end stud brakets (any 10mm ball end will work fine):
Bed Box end:
Amazon.com: 10MM Ball Stud Bracket for Gas Spring/Prop/Strut (2 Pack): Automotive
Bed Platform end:
Amazon.com: JR Products BR-1020 10mm Flat Gas Spring Mounting Bracket: Automotive
Good luck, let us all know if you try a lighter-duty support... I'm thinking it will work a little better, but don't have time/energy to fool with it.
Onwards!! LOL. Going FullTime in about a month, so the clock is ticking very very loudly.

I haven't looked - is there a sticky post somewhere with common acronyms?

Again thanks all for sharing your experience with this.

I got the reccommended lift for the queen bed so I tthink I have the correct one. I think reversing the gas cylinders as many suggested will work.

I also thought about the partition that was suggested which would add some structure. I just don't want to mess up any warranty stuff. Judging from all the threads I read, the warranty is rather subjective so I may just go ahead and do it.

Quick update:

The dealer repaired bed under warranty. None of the screws were in the studs! They actually shifted the bed over about an inch. The gas shock was rubbing one side and I had to re drill the mount to move everything over. Everything seems OK now. It sure was a heck of a hassle just to lift a freaking bed ��

I have a 267 BHS with no struts or anything under the master. I saw them added to the next model year and now am looking for a picture or measurements to install the struts. Does anyone's bed have these struts and can you send me a picture or two?

I purchased the individual pieces from our dealer and added lifts to our 267bhs bed. I can get you some pics, but will be a few days. We are currently using our camper as a guest house. I think they are leaving Subday.

We just purchased the parts from Amazon and are going to attempt installation soon so I am interested in pictures too.

Bed lift for 264BHW issues



Hopefully these help. I just guesstimated when I did the install as I didn't really have anything for reference. If I remember correctly i mounted the bottom mount where I wanted it, propped the hatch open to where I wanted it, and just figured out from there where the top mount needed to go. I put a piece of 1x across to give the vertical 1x2 a bit more rigidity. I can get measurements if desired. I forgot about it until a few minutes ago and wanted to get pics posted. Can get measurements when I get home tomorrow, just let me know if they are wanted.

We took a different route. I pulled all the paneling off under the bed and stained the pine to match the floor. (Actually I threw away the 2x2 and replaced with 2x4, I am a big guy). My DW found bins that fit end to end under the bed.

I took the front panel and used it to block off at the head of the bed to the outside storage is straight across.

The bed is much more sturdy and we like the open access to the stuff under the bed.

That is a GREAT idea! I wish I would have thought about that before we started the lift installation process.
