1964 Safari Twin Cushions and Table?

I'm the proud new owner of a '64 Safari Twin. I'm about to have new cushions made, but I don't know what was correct for my Airstream. The cushions I have now were made some time back and don't fit. I'm baffled though on how to make cushions that will fit the twin beds when they are pulled out. Also, from some of the pictures I've seen, it looks as though the back cushions were curved on one end, but that still wouldn't make them fit the bed when pulled out? I'm very confused. Please help. Pictures or diagrams would be great.

The other question concerns the gaucho. There is a board at the top of the seat with two clamps on it. Are these original, and what are they for? Do I have something missing? Please help.

May last question has to do with the table, but I'll ask that in the furnishings section.

Thanks,

Steve

Can't answer your question but I think you just bought the exact trailer I want

Here're the new cushions. I had them made with cloth on one side and vinyl on the rest, so they are reversible. I just spent several days in Mendocino and thoroughly enjoyed the new cushions. In case you are curious, I paid just under $200 for the vinyl and fabric, $350 for the labor, and $550 for the new foam. Finally I'm doing work that can be seen. I mean the new plumbing, and the rest of the mechanical things I've replaced are great, but no one sees them. They are totally unimpressive. New cushions on the other hand are really nice.

This is the trailer I wanted in so many ways, and it's finally starting to look good. It still needs a new floor, but most people don't know that.

wow, you're cushions look really good. Well done.

we have a '67 safari and had to gut it to start over the floor was awful. We decided to put a permanent bed in the front and turned the gaucho across from the kitchen into a dinette.

My 63 goucho also came with a board on the top of the back cushion and the two clamps. It was intended to hold the cushion in place and preventing it from falling forward. I left it that way.

There is a '64 Safari just like this one that was just listed in the classified section. It's $15k, which is coincidentally just about what I've got in this one.
