Boler bunk mounting pics?

Does anyone have a pic of how the bunk mounts to the wall in the early boler? Mine looks like it didn't come with one from the factory and I picked a used one and it seems like the support poles are too long. If I attach the hinges to the wall just under the window the front of the bed is an inch a bit higher at the pole end than the window end. Do the hinges go beside the window? Any help would be great, I'm trying to get the old girl ready for the first camping trip with two kids
Thanks!

Hi Brian,

The way the Boler 13 bunk hinges work is they raise the bunk cushion as you tilt it up. That happens because the hinges are sort of step-shaped. The step part mounts to a horizontal, wooden "shelf" that should be fiberglassed to the front wall of your Boler, under the front window. Here is how a 1974 looks, raised. You can just see the hinges at the back:

And a photo from a cushion (not mine) that shows the hinge closer up. There are three screws that go into the wooden "shelf" and three in the bunk bottom:

The bottom end of the posts fit into these brackets:

And the top extends up over the bunk flat:

It's hard to see, but there is a little loop welded onto the side of the post, which catches a screw that projects from the bottom of the bunk piece, and that's what holds the post onto the top bunk:

That's great, thanks!
Mine doesn't have the shelf piece so I guess I'll have to attach something like that.
