Cot pictures and info

I am interested in adding the front cot to my 19'. I ordered it cot ready in 2017
so the reinforcement is there. I have not been able to find any good pictures of the cot or what the brackets look like both with and without the cot in place. Searching the forum with cot as the key word reveals nothing. Does anyone have or can they link me to some pictures? I am interested in how far the brackets protrude. If anyone has installed the cot after the fact, I would appreciate any insights. I need to expand the sleeping area for grandchildren. Thanks in advance.

Steve

I took this picture a few weeks ago in the showroom of ETI.

I installed the cot after the fact. Original owner ordered it cot ready which was just the support blocks glassed into the shell sidewall. The cot is very strong, but we found that since the crossbars are two pieces without a super tight fit that the cot wanted to sag a little bit in the middle. We solved that by welding the poles together and we store the cot by rolling it up and putting it across the trailer under the bed. It goes in through the rear passenger side hatch. This is convenient enough given how infrequently the cot is used.

It is very particular measuring to locate the wall brackets properly and the crossbars either need to be cut by ETI or they will send them long for you to cut. Reace used to prefer the owner cut them because it is an exact fit. At least on the classic 19 the shape of the mold causes the front crossbar to be shorter than the rear crossbar.

Good luck. Being able to use the cot is a nice benefit in the 19.

Steve: FWIW I just came across another good picture and the instructions (with photos) that Escape sent me to install the cot.

Admins: Might want to include the cot install instructions in the files section if it is not there already.

Oops, I forgot to order the cot option on our build. Someday my kids may give us grandkids. Considering this is our last trailer, we should have ordered them.
