Rear island queen slides forward!

What's the factory installation to prevent the rear queen bed from sliding forward when I hit the brakes?

After every trip, I have to push the bed back into position.

I think the PO replaced the wood platform and didn't install the original bed stop, whatever that may be.

options

Two possible solutions. Use industrial grade Velcro to the mattress and platform. We have done this for cushions on furniture with good success. The other option would we adhere gripper cabinet liner to the platform as additional friction for the mattress.

As a fellow MH owner, I would like to know how you improved the brakes to the degree that anything will slide while applying them.........

I made an industrial grade Velcro strap near the foot of the bed,which nicely holds the made up bed and duvet in place. Rough side of Velcro attaches to sides of the frame base, about a foot in from end of mattress. I found you need at least a 3 by 4 in contact on Velcro. The 'no slide' nubby shelf line is enough to hold all the sofa cushions in place. When the used trailer was delvered go us, everything was on the floor....so I guess the original owners put up with a big mess.
