    were going to use the overcab bed in our scout this summer, there are two straight hook type things either side of the cab/hab bulkhead hight up, what are these for? should I have a rail or something to fit to stop people rolling out of the bed?

    Yes I think its for a net.

    We have a type of curtain that you can pull up. I havent used the bed but my son likes it and says its very comfortable.

    I thought it must be for something, we dont have a net, but I nicked the cargo net from my car, we use it to stop stuff falling on our heads when driving, so we'll use it to stop sleeping passangers as well:thumb:

    thanks

    Yes as above, a roller blind net at the bottom that clips to the roof brackets.

    As above, you should find the net under the mattress.

    We used to sleep in the overcab in our first MH and never used the net. There is plenty of room and its unlikely that you would roll over and fall out. I think it's really a safety feature for small kids.

    I don't know where you are but I sold out Apache yet still have the ladder if any use to you.

    Re the thread the net was ace, it held all things safely in place and for its proper use (kids) they could be safely caged in as all kids should he he

    I think its for kids really

    I found it, it was as said part of the the mattress, sewed onto the edge with a bar to lock into the hooks. As the materess is normally folded it was out of sight, ( and out of mind)

    anoter job sorted:thumb:

    It's part of the mattress on my Cheyenne - incidentally, they have these on yachts, saves off-watch crew from falling out of their bunks when the boat heels over!

    It may be a roller blind type, there will be a couple of tell-tale straps and clips that attach to the roof clips somewhere. They roller is usually just inside the bed base lip.
