Widening the bed

Our 2001 16' Bambi with the "L" shape couch to bed conversion option would be more comfortable if it were wider. There appears to be 6-8" of space available to extend it but the sliding guides prevent this. We would obviously need to add 6-8" to the bottom but can we obtain longer metal slides?

His longer bed would block entrance/exit through the door but we can live with that disruption.

Any assistance on how to accomplish this and/or where to find longer sliding guides would be appreciated.

Well, we (my wife the upholsterer) figured it out ourselves and just in case someone else needs to know, we just replaced the drawer slides with longer versions and cut a new 4” longer piece of plywood.
