When we added the heavier mattress we were camped next to an RV dealer so I got them from them.

My bed is too heavy for the struts to up. I’m too lazy to install new struts and too cheap to buy them so I keep a piece of plastic pipe under the bed to hold it up. I put a screw a few inches from the side if the bed and left about a 1/4 inch of the head exposed. I stand the pipe op so the bed can’t fall. Works every time.
