My 1972 Tradewind is set up for them but I don't have the bunks, just the brackets. According to my owners manual, the bunk basically folds in half and slides into a pair of brackets over the couch, just below the upper storage compartments. I'd scan the diagram for you, but my brother borrowed my scanner and hasn't returned it. If you look at the linked photo in my album here,

you can see the brown metal bracket in the upper left, under the storage compartment.

You are correct - Vintageairstream.com has some good photos of the original setup:

Your pic shows at the very least that the frame and sling don't take up alot of space when folded and placed up against the wall.
Chuck, the twins never had a back to them, as they were not intended to be couches. There is no reason, however, why you couldn't install cushions on the part that you would lean against if it were a couchback. If nothing else, it would keep you from smacking your head into it in the middle of the night.
