Gas struts

I have a 37' class A Gulfstream. I want to put gas struts on the queen bed to lift up. I want to use this area for storage. Any suggestions on type and size. The bed is very heavy.
Bob

Bob,

I added a third strut to my bed, see picture below. As far as the type and size of strut, I matched the length and number on the existing struts. After I installed the middle strut it is alot easier to lift and stays up without using the prop brace I also installed.

I will get the model and size and post it .

Bob,

The strut part numbers are ML26-160 on my bed. Click on link. Look to see what mounting brackets you will need also.

I just installed some new struts on an outside compartment a week ago. Nothing to do with a bed but I got my struts at www.liftsupportsdepot.com and I was very satisfied. They have a great selection to choose from and shipped fast.
Might take a look at what you need.

I have them on my Pace Arrow, they (2) hold the bed (Queen size) up fine. If you can't find them call Fleetwood.
