I know this may not help but I removed my bed assembly from our Dutch Aire to remove the carpet and install hardwood.

While the beds are not identical they are similar.

Remove the mattress,

If your coach has under bed storage - lift the wooden plywood up and remove the gas struts and the piano hinge screws, this will allow you to remove 2/3 of the bed base.

The balance of the plywood base is screwed to the bed fram, so remove those screws to remove the rest of the plywood.

The bed frame will generally be screwed to the floor if its not in a slide -- or it will be screwed to the floor of the slide that it travels with.

If your bed frame has electrical outlet(s) you can pop them out of the bed frame without touching the wires and lay them loose in the slide.

Now you can get a helper and lift the bed box frame upright and slide it out of the bedroom, putting it on a carpet runner will help you slide it around.

Take pictures as you go to reference for assembly and keep your hardware in a container for when its time to put things back together.

.....hope this helps a bit?!
