Overlander Bunk?

My 1966 Overlander evidently has the older style "pullman" wood bun bed. It sits on rails above the twin bed. I need to replace the missing rear side hinges, but the latches that hold it to the ceiling when not in use are ok.

Anyone know what these hinges should look like?


I have a picture on this thread....thanks!

Found some support hinges at HD that seem to do the job, but it was a chore getting the screws in... Used a socket wrench which did the deal for me.
Pix to come

The two 1968 models we have at the shop have the newer, fold up aluminum framed bunk.

The original order form which came with the books and papers for the trailer has the specified wooden PULLMAN bunk on it. Anyway I finally got something that works, and because of their design I am able to fold the bunk down from the ceiling hasps and then slide it back a bit on the support rails.
Not that I expect to use it for anything more than storage and decor. It does look pretty cool in there.

The main thing was to secure the bunk to the rails, allow it to be folded up and so on.
