Engine cover/Bed supports

My 1998 36 Alpine has no supports or gas assist shocks under the bed. I assume the coach had supports when it came from the factory.

Can some one please direct me to a picture or info about the type and size of supports; an dhow to attach them properly?

Do you see evidence of anchor points from a previous bed lift kit?

Many resources available:

Amazon.com: rv bed lift kit

Standard Bedlift Kit - Hatchlift 120-080 - Furnishing Accessories - Camping World

RV Bedlift Kits

Make sure the bed base is strong enough to anchor to, adding plywood or metal reinforcing is often a good idea.
