Gas springs on bunk ends

Has anyone replaced the gas springs on bunk ends to make it easier lowering and raising them? What did you use?

A while ago I found electric springs. A little pricey at about $100.00 each. Might be worth looking into if you're really serious.

Gas springs? My 2010 Roo has cables to hold up the bunk doors when opened. No springs.

"Wutch you talkin' 'bout, Willis?" My 20102 has cables, too. No springs.

I'd like to see a pic of what you've got.

Sorry, what i meant to say . Has anyone installed gas springs on the bunk ends to help with raising and lowering the bunkbends? My wife takes the kids camping sometimes when i'm working. I thought they might help her.

Gotcha. That job falls to me and one of our DSs so with two people it's not a problem for us.. I'm more concerned about making sure all the tenting is in away from the door seals.

I have to say... Good for your wife that's she is willing to do it on her own with the kids. My DW would never be brave enough to hook up and drive the Roo on her own.

Thanks for the compliment. My wife does get a lot of nice people offering help, but she also gets a lot of rude people telling her, women should not be towing a trailer.
