Folding Berth Insert Option

In the N/A literature I have for the Spirit 23 optional equipment item 18 is a "Folding Berth Insert" does anyone have any clue as to what that is? I suspect it might be something that joins the 2 side berths together to make one large berth. Almost a king sized one. Any info & preferably pictures would be awesome.

Still looking. That trail got cold with no joy.

Re: Folding Berth Insert Option

My bet (having never seen one) is that the front of the sette lifts up and legs drop down.

That's how it worked on my hunter.

In the Spirit, the settee's are solid so there's nothing to lift up. We're looking for a frame of sorts that fits on rails attached to both sides of the aisle in the cabin. Thanks for your response though.

Re: Folding Berth Insert Option

If it would help, my 23K has a folding cushion set. It is hinged and I believe it goes between the side berths. I have never used it. This might be what you are looking for. Want a picture?
