1994 DUTCHMAN TENT TRAILER
« on: March 13, 2011, 06:59:29 PM »
I'm having trouble figuring out how to brase the two bed to the frame. This  dutchman is not like my old coleman. A drawing would really help.

Front Bunk End:

The bed at the tongue of the trailer mounts to the body of the camper. Before you slide the bed out look at the top edge of the camper body (this is of course with the roof raised.) there should be two holes to put the pins of the bed support poles in. The poles should have hinged poles attached and the opposite end will fit into slots on the trailer frame. The bed then slides out on top of these poles.


Rear Bunk End:

The other bunk end supports will connect to the bottom side of the bed and to the bumper

Like Beerlifter said, but the front bunk end on ours has two sets of poles (maybe this is just on the models with a King bed?).  The ones mentioned, and a second set that goes from the tabs under the bed to the slots just behind the trailer coupler.  The shorter pair of poles goes to the bigger (front) bed.  Longer poles to the smaller (rear) bed.

The poles are in the rear bumper if you haven't found them yet :)

I find it easiest to crouch under the bunk and "put my back into it" to raise the bunk enough to get the slack required to get the poles into the slots.

This may help:
