    I recently purchased a used starcraft 2411 from a private seller. They assured me it had all parts, but when I took it camping, the front bunk started to split! After doing a bunch of research, I see now that it was missing some supports for the bunks :(
    I am hoping beyond hope that someone with the same trailer can measure some of the supports and take pictures for me so that I can have a local metal shop fabricate me some new ones.

    Hey your in luck i have the same pup. Although i just put it down in prep for storm. On the front there r 3 poles. One that is "U" shaped with legs,which hooks onto the front slots on trailer body(same as 2 do in back) n then there are 2 legs that come down to the frame where 2 other poles also sit.

    AMAZING. I really thought it was a long shot posting this!
    The guy that sold it to me swore up and down it wasn't missing anything :/
    Will you be taking it out at all after the storm? If so, can I BEG you to send pics and dimensions? I've called multiple RV places, and parts places, but without dimensions or a part number i'm screwed. And the manual doesn't give me any part numbers that I can see

    Ill get the measurements n a pic asap, but to give u an idea . The 2 hinged poles on the back is pretty much what i think your missing . Its one big "u"shape with 2 hinged legs. And it stores on top on the beds when everything is closed up.

    No way, for real? I'm gonna go buy a lotto ticket.
    So I have a set of angled poles on each end, but no u shaped pole for the front and no hinged pole for the back. I am horrible at drawing, but included a sketch of what the poles I have look like when set up. And a pic of part of the front.

    The hinged poles more or less wedge into the cleats (for lack of proper term for them) under the beds

    So, I haven't attempted to make poles yet. Thought I'd source them out first. Your photos helped me get part numbers, which then helped me get a quote from jayco - over 500 for the 3 I need :/ so I asked a local sheet metal place for a quote to fab. $600.
    So. Looks like I'll be creating my own. I'll let ya know how that goes.
