1980 Caravelle -side gaucho needs help!!

I am not sure I have all the original parts for the side gaucho. The guide tracks need alot of work, but before I tear into this I need help on how this gaucho turns into a bed. I have three cushions, two the same thickness and one an inch thicker. Does the gaucho pull out about four inches just enough to fit the two same size cushion? What do you do with the thicker one? I think all 20 foot models in that same time frame have the same gaucho. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Don

Don, I "think" the frame pulls out far enough for all three cushions with the thickest one being placed closest to the wall. There should be a plywood panel to lay the cushion on or it may be attatched to the foam with the fabric over it. Unless, of course, the previous owner has made some modifications, in which case all bets are off! Darol
