Six gas struts?

Post by Kimmie on Tue 23 Oct 2012, 9:48 pm

If you know what I mean

What I mean is can gas struts be fitted to sixes? I got rid of mine ( Sad ) as it was too heavy to put up with my dodgy back.

That was after I'd rung the usual places to find a man who can.

Yes but after you have found the man who can won't that leave your back in an even worse state?

6's and gas struts.

Sides should have struts, beds can have struts fitted as per any other Dandy the geometry is the same.

Highside Destinys have a different geometry but can be fitted with struts. There is an issue with early ones and the positioning of ??? (a section of internal brace I think) Also some adjustment is required to the bed legs.

All this is covered in the file section of the Yahoo "Owners Group"

I've seen a highside been picked up from Riva after struts were fitted. It threw itself up I was really impressed.
