rear bed of trident

Post by TrevTaylor on Thu 9 Feb - 16:33

On my 2006 Trident the second matress from the rear door is slightly higher than the rest and is not comfortable. Is this normal or does something need adjusting. I can sleep with feet to rear but would prefer to have my head to the rear. Any ideas please.

Is this because the rear seat base has been sat on for a number of years and sagged a bit

Get a memory foam mattress. 2'' should be enough.

...our '07 Trooper bed is more or less level all the way back. Try removing the rear two sections from the base (rear is loose, next is velcro) and fold the bed down to see if all the bases go flat against each other, there might be an obstruction there. There is a thin metal edging strip along the bases edges that could be loose and raised up.
On mine, I have carefully arranged the rear seat belt buckles underneath the bases so they can't catch on any part of the bed operation - I never use them, they only come out at MOT time.
Also check the two side bars where they hinge up...if they come loose it's possible to catch on the side moulding. It's an allan bolt, keep it tight. Don't be tempted to WD40 it, as it will contaminate the side of the backrest when it's upright, and it will be seen through the side window.

Rear bed on Trident

I would suggest you check the 'rock and roll' mechanism / the bolt that allows the bed to concertina. I have a Trooper similar age and have
had a similar problem. My bolt fell out altogether? Marian
