'63 Bambi front couch Knob?

There is a knob under the front couch, when It is pulled a rope pulls down a spring loaded wooden piece under the coach.
I am sure this is original.
What is it? What is it function?

I've heard about this. That's the "Eject Camper" lever. It's used for Mother-In-Laws and drunken passed-out squatters. If it's not functioning, I'd suggest you get it repaired immediately because when you don't have it...that's when you need it!

The rope

Hi. we have a 63 Bambi, and I said what is this rope for. After taking my Bambi apart I came to this conclusion. It is to change the angle of the bed/seating area. If you lift the front edge of the "seating area a wooden piece will pop up that is spring loaded. This will create a better angle for seating. For Sleeping lift the front edge of the couch and pull the Knob/wrope and the bed will be flat for sleeping. Pretty cool HuH.

the knob is there so that you can drop the edge of the bench down over the drawers so they do not open durring towing. as you will notice, anything that opens longitudinaly will need to be secured durring towing. Otherwise, you stand the chance of big mess if you need to suddenly stop or accelerate quickly.

I'll have to check that out. Looks like I guessed wrong. How about that.
Thanks Don
