Gaucho Sofas

I took my sofa's apart a long time ago to replace the flooring. It took me so long to fix the floor that I completely forgot how to put them back together. Does anyone out there have plans for how these babies go back together? I have 76 land yacht if that helps. Any help would be much appreciated.

which parts?

Is your gaucho under the front window or along the side of the trailer? We have a '74 with the gaucho under the front window. If you let me know which parts are being a challenge to reassemble, I can see about taking some pictures.

I saw a post a few days back where there was a diagram of all the parts and how they assemble. Proably in the interior section of the restoration section. I just had a new gaucho made at a local upholstry shop. Took the old one in and they used it for a pattern for my 72 Tradewind

Thanks to all!!!! After a long and tedious trial and error I figured it out. Make sure you like up your guacho parts with the pre drilled holes of the metal arms.

I had a wooden bracket that fit around the electrical box. The bracket screwed right into the wall. From that point I was able to screw the guacho frame to the bracket. I hope this helps.
