Bed Lift Idea

I want to add this to "the list":

This is a Chalet, I think stock too. Right now we have the original boards from when the Aliner had a dinette where the permanent bed is now. It folds up okay, kinda hangs up a bit on the right side hinge. This looks a lot easier to deal with. I have two small shocks already. I doubt we'll need more than two as we are using an air mattress (that will be deflated for travel). Maybe next year?

5/27....I just found this bed lift option in a 2009 High Side Aliner on Danny's Campers website....I wish I lived closer to this place. I don't know if I like this yet, looks like it would be harder to get into the side compartments. I think I like the Chalet design better.


  1. Hello! the bed lift modification is just what i'm looking for . I have an aliner classis with sofa option....I never use the sofa and the bed lift would make it easier and more functional for me. Do you share directions? I'm a pretty good diy'er middle aged camping lady, but any little instruction would be so wonderful.

  2. Hi Deb O from Canada . I love your idea . I think I can figure the bed frame out , but what did you do with the electric parts and the propane detector . Where did you move them to? Please reply to Thank you Deb O

  3. this is so cool! I am going to do the same thing to my Aliner LE. thanks for the inspiration!

  4. We are interested in this wonderful idea and are wondering what weight capacity do the arms need to be? What type of hinge did you use? Thank you!
