Ditto that. Right now the broom handle is looking good to the DH and I need to make this as straightforward as possible.

I had a 2014 for 2 1/2 years and we had gas struts. In fact, the 2703WS I've got now has the exact same bed and struts with a Serta on it. The old trailer would stay up, but the new one won't. Same struts, different mattress weight. Pull the one you've got and measure it (I believe closed length and inner rod length) and look online. They're about $10 - $20 ... I had to replace my 2104S door strut last year. I'd look for one about 150% of the one you have now and go from there.

I wouldn't give up my broom handle, so we have a 1" diameter dowel cut to length with a rubber cap on each end. Works like a champ when DH isn't available to hold the bed up for me

we added a memory foam mattress so that underbed storage is strictly for extra towels & paper products ... don't have to get in to it too often
