Curb side mid twin - make it a goucho

We have just purchased our first airstream. My parents talked about getting one throughout my childhood, and just like antiques, have "trained" me well. We were able to get a great A/S with an interior that needs some love, but is all original and in great shape for 32 years of age. I'm hooked!

I have the curb side twin pulled out to repair a frozen water pipe, and am considering options for a goucho. Don't know if it is worth trying to find the mechanics, or just making my own. Whatever I do, I want to be able to return everything to original condition.

We have a double goucho on the street side of the living area L shaped couch. This is great as I am 6'2 and the front couch extends the double to a very long double.

We sleep in a king bed at home, and not having tried the double, I am worried that it will be too narrow.

Thus, considering a curb side goucho. Homemade hardware, or original. Open to making it large enough for the twins to touch, but can see that it would make getting to the rear bath difficult if we have guests sleeping up front.

I have seen the link for the goucho design, but it doesn't provide clear information on the slides.

Any thoughts or help would be great!
