Inca over-cab bed

Post by Les W on Tue Jun 27, 2017 9:45 pm

Looking for help.. a previous owner of our Inca removed the 'folding bit' to the overhead bed, I want to put it back as it just floats about... but the hinges are missing.

The problem is I have no Idea what the hinges look like, they seem to be some sort of 'double hinge' thingy.. does any Inca owner or anyone really, know where I might get some (3) a picture would be great so that I know what I need.

Many Thanks..

Let's try a different approach, has anyone used the Autosleeper Parts Enquiry system?
It seems you have to create some sort of account.

Thanks for that Chris, the hinges that are missing on my Inca are not 'normal' back flap(?) hinges though.

They should allow the fixed lower part to swing 180 degrees, difficult to explain really.

I should be able to pull on the handle so that the assembly lies flat.

Where your hinge is missing i have same hinge with the edge trimmed like yours.

when that is fixed to front part you would pull handle to lay flat.

Inca bed hinge

Post by Petesymphony on Fri Jul 07, 2017 5:06 pm

Hi Les
I own an Inca EK 2.8hdi. The hinge on mine is the same as the centre hinge shown in the previous photos. To operate you push up on the centre hinge joint . The front part with the handle now moves forward and the two ladder attachment brackets drop into the hooks fitted in the front padded head rail. It now ends up folded in half in the vertical position. I cannot send any pictures at the moment due to technical probs.
Hope this helps

It's the reference to hooks on the padded headrail that's confusing me..
Because a previous owner removed everything, I have no Idea what it should look like... ☹

On my Inca there are hooks on the ladder and the same type of hooks are fitted to the padded part of the head.rail. I cannot attach any photos as I have not been able to work out how to do it. I can attach photos to an e mail address if this helps you Les
