Slide out Double help

The PO had converted the slide out double in my 75 Tradewind into the bottom bunk of a custom twin bunk bed setup. I don't have any need for bunk beds so I've removed the top bunk frame and want to reconvert it back to a pull out double.

This is what's left. I know I need a sheet of plywood placed down across the sliders but what else am I missing? Does anyone know the original dimensions of the cushions? It looks like something may have been drilled into the skin.. Possibly a backrest?

The piece of plywood that caps the cabinet was hinged to the wall.

The cushion was about the width of a single mattress, the length is determined by the size of the opening between the bulkheads.

I think it is super single size, but I am subject to correction here.

1/2 Ton 4WD Truck, 72 Sovereign Hensley Arrow

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

You will need two pieces of plywood, one the width of the framework you see, and another just slightly wider than the gap that will be formed by pulling the first piece of plywood out. The first piece of the bed will fit on top of the large piece of plywood, the second will fit on top of the smaller piece of plywood. That is going to be the minimum you need to have a double pullout bed there.
The larger piece of plywood will be screwed to the moving part of the frame, and the edge of the smaller piece will be screwed to the non-moving part of the frame, against the wall.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
