Rebuild Gaucho or buy new?

We have a 1986 31 ft Soveriegn. I have taken the gaucho and assembly out to have it reupholstered. I have a futon in there now temporarily, but it is too big. I was thinking of rebuilding the gaucho frame and having the gaucho re upholstered. Any advice? Is there a 'kit' for the 86?

I don't know about 86 but a problem I had in my 70s gauchos was the plastic stoppers on the sliders were worn causing the gaucho to slip when fully extended. I also got some used sliders and put in a couple of extra to better distribute my bulk. Overall rebuilding is a pretty simple affair.
