Elk Mountain Trailers (I believe no longer in business) seemed to use a similar method as you suggest. You can see the bed around the 4:00 minute mark in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-2AYJwKedo.


Nice Find Tom!! :applause: :thumbsup: :) Something to this effect is exactly what I was envisioning.

Well after messing around with it for a bit this is what I came up with. Most of it is just set in place, checking clearances etc. I left plenty of space between the 2x2's so it shouldn't bind or anything. It should allow me to raise it if needed although it might not be very easy until I come up with a pulley system.

I do have one question I'm not entirely sure of. My trailer came with a vent on either corner, not very big but 1 of them ended up in what is now the shower. Are these a benefit to me once I add the A/C? Now would be the time to close them off if I need to.

Mine was behind the shower as well. I blocked that one but I am debating whether to block off the one on the back of the trailer (opposite side on the bottom)
