Trillium / Boler Bunk rail

After having removed the bunk cushions and poles from our Trillium 1300 over a year ago for restoration, we finally re-installed the bunk today. We don't remember the poles that support the upper bunk being on an angle, but it seems to have gone back together that way?? However, we are perhaps happy about this, because it gives us the opportunity to re-do the poles and install them much like what you see in Boler Bunks, where the poles by-pass the upper bunk cushion so they can then tie into the safety rail. But what we don't know, is the type of bracket or support the upper bunk has to tie into the pole so it is supported in the upright position? Does anyone have any photos of this detail so we can see if we can do the same in our Trillium? We want to do what is showing in the 3rd Boler photo but can't see how the poles are supporting the upper bunk. We're hoping we can still use the pole slots under the seat cushion for storage. Thanks,

Trillium / Boler Bunk rail

Don't know about Boler, but post #4 in this thread has details about the Scamp bunk set-up:
New-to-me Scamp...couple of questions

If my visual memory serves me, the angled posts are correct in a Trillium. Probably intended to make access easier. I sleep on the lower bunk in our Scamp. Getting in isn't too bad, but getting out takes some doing.

The bunk attaches onto another piece of wood that screws into the window frame. This provides 1.5" of wood to screw the piano hinge into. Did you use that additional piece of wood?

HA HA! YES! But we had initially forgotten about that extra piece of wood so the first time we did a dry run we were perplexed as to why we couldn't get the piano hinge on the bunk board. This is the problem with taking things apart too far in advance and not taking enough photos.
