Does anyone have a picture of what these looked like?
The brackets on the front lounge on my coach appear to have been modified. When I first purchased the coach, there was a length of elastic through each of the "u" shaped brackets with snaps on each end these snaps were attached to the wooden back of the cushion to keep it in place when underway. When I had Arlene and Henry Fowler (Fowler RV Interiors) refurbish the interior of my coach, they did not reuse the retainers, and I haven't had any particular problems since then. I suspect that the reason that I haven't had problems since refurbishing the interior is that the new cushions are substantially heavier due to much higher-density foam and a very dense upholstery fabric that it takes more to move the cushions.
The armrests in my coach are "tear-shaped", and bracket is essentially a "L" bracket that was carefully bent to make a "u" that just hooks over the "u" bracket that is attached at both ends to the front sidewalls of the coach.
I am afraid that I don't have photos of either of these two items. My schedule has been topsy-turvy, and I don't know just when I will be back to check on the Overlander.
Good luck with your investigation!
