    Hi all!
    My first ever 'post' on a forum.
    Just purchased a Niesmann+ Bischoff A class motorhome with a drop down bed.

    It is fantastic, but there must be a knack to pushing it back up in the morning!
    Can a motorised 12 volt system be retro fitted to take the effort out of raising the bed back up? (I know some models have an auto system factory fitted)
    I'm not technical so would probably need to have the work done professionally.
    I'm based in hertfordshire and also in Pembrokeshire but happy to travel for the work to be done.

    Any help much appreciated

    Ray

    From memory - mine in the Hymer did not go exactly vertical.

    Suggest you watch closely when it is coming down as I always pulled mine towards me at the same time as (minimal) lifting and it was easy.
