Goucho Rear Support Mechanism

So I finally finished upholstering new foam for my old front goucho (BTW- foam and cloth = $140, I sewed it together). The PO ripped out the old foam and goucho top. Now I have no idea how the rear support is supposed to support itself (I do have a wood panel in the rear of the foam back) so that I have a sturdy back to my couch. Can anyone show me pictures of what supports the goucho in the back so that you can lean back on the cushions? Pictures would help immensely.

On our '74, there is a narrow shelf just below the front window that goes across most of the width of the trailer. The upper part of the back cushion rests against this shelf. There is a piece of plywood in the back cushion which keeps it upright and provides some support. There is a piece of fabric that connects the back cushion and seat cushion, which keeps the bottom of the back cushion from sliding around.

There are several threads that show some extensive remodels that include pictures of the original shelf and how folks have made modifications. On the some trailers, there appears to be a storage box that supports the back cushion. Lots of options.

oops- sideways

Hi- here's a pic of the gaucho assembly from my '72 shop manual, hope it helps. Maybe you can print it and turn it right side up, as I think it's going to show sideways. -tim
