I'm not quite certain what you mean.
The later models of Designer hinge the beds differently to the early Designers (& Discoverys, Delta, Dart & anything numbered 6, 5, 41/2 and 4)
The early Dandys are hinged at the bottom of the bed when closed which became near the top of the bed when open. There is an (inadequately) upholstered section at the top of the Dandy tub that becomes the interior edge of the bed.
The later Dandys (some point post 1992 but just before acrylic windows) have the bed hinge at the ends of the tub, not along the outside. This hinge point is higher and the interior side of the bed rotates about the point. There is no hard lump on the interior side of the bed.

Not sure what type of bed you're referring to. If it's the earlier type I've never noticed the feature you're mentioning. If it's the later type I'm not really au fait with these.

If I've missed the point completely. (I do at times) a photo might help. See: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
