Hi, and welcome to the forums!

You ask about the support panels under the front goucho of a 1963 Bambi. Do you have a Bambi or Land Yacht? We have a 63 Bambi, and the front goucho is supported by a frame structure with plywood that rather sits on top and lifts up so you can access the fresh water tank that is underneath. A Land Yacht may have a different construction, I am not sure. I will search for pictures and post a link if I can. The leanback cushions are sort of funky in 63 Bambi's... they don't give much support. We have a small wooden shelf that the leanback cushions lean up against. But I stuff our sleeping pillows behind the cushions and it works fairly well.

I would post pictures of what you are curious about if you can, it will help you get the best answers.

Welcome and search away! I will return and post a link.

Here is a link on my husband's thread on our 1963 Bambi rebuild. The pictures at this link show the framing of the street side goucho, if you scroll back a page you will see the front goucho. Somewhere if you go further forward (higher numbers) you may see the plywood that supports the cushions...not sure if we have pics or not. Good luck!

Under Goucho

Thanks everybody that tried to help. I'm not real good on this one eyed monstser thing, but I'll keep trying. I'll get pictures of what we need of the front goucho support. Yes, it does say Bambi Land Yachet on the outside, by the door. I don't know the difference either, but I'll keep searching. We don't believce the cushions were complete for this unit. It has a side couch with base cushion and 2 smalled cushions for the back, one tucking under a shelve. We had thought that maybe the same thing applied to the front, but only came with two not three cushions. Putting the bed pillows there makes seince. This is great to be able to talk to anyone. I hope we can be lighthearted too to put up fun things. Bubbles PS, what do the rivets stand for?
