Help! Bigfoot 17 gaucho bed

Hi everyone! Newbie here! We sold our little Boler to get more sleeping space for our 2 boys. We are so excited to camp in the Bigfoot (older model but has the shower). Unfortunately, the previous owner modded the gaucho bed so it doesn't have any hardware or a wood platform to extended to make the bed. There are some poles that are slid down into holes beneath the couch that my husband is guessing were support legs? Any info, pics, links etc that you could share would help. We're pretty much stuck until we can get it to work Thanks!!!

I don't know what year your 17-footer is but I happened to be out in mine today (a 1989 gaucho model) cleaning it from the last trip and I paused to take some pix of the gaucho's bunk platform for you. The first four show the platform extended and the last two show it retracted. Hope these help.

Interesting. I hadn't seen the gaucho bed slide before. It's actually the same as on the couch in my CB, except mine has support at both ends and doesn't need the leg.
Thanks for the pics.
