Thanks to Gail & Jeff Fisk for getting this topic started.
Jeff added gas props to the rear gaucho bed in their HiLander. These props
assist with lifting the under couch storage lid and keeping it lifted. A
really great enhancement. You should be able to purchase them at any local
RV sales place with a store, but in case you can't, here's a couple of online
locations. You'll need to know length and have some idea of the weight needing
to be lifted as well, so do a little homework before you go buy.
