    OK now I have your attention I would like some info on the bed in a Swift Kontiki. Has anyone got any pics of the bed in the dinette area. I have the pull put section but nothing else so I need some pics of the missing parts.

    By pull out section I assume you mean the lathes, which are attached to heavy ribbons, between the bench seats ?

    Same as my old 640L.

    I suspect you mean the infill panel at the outer end of the lathes ?

    Mine never had one and I suspect, because the would be the foot end, it doesn't need one once the cushions are in place.

    It would be easy to cut a small panel from ply or MDF to fit the gap.

    As far as cushions are concerned we found if the seat cushions are placed as is and one of the backrests slot in between these.
    The second backrest is placed across the pull out sections.
    The whole thing is an uncomfortable compromise.

    All this is from memory of around 7 years ago and we only experimented as there was only the two of us so used the lounge beds.
