I have just joined this week and hope to meet you on a rally field sometime.
I have a 2016 Optima T75 which is great except for the drop down bed which really lives up to its name – the darned thing wont stay up especially when driving.
A possibly former member reported identical issues with his Optima model and I am convinced that it is a defective Hobby design especially as Hobby totally redesigned the bed for the 2017 range.
If any members have problems with their, could you please let me know asap ? I have a warranty meeting with my dealer on Tuesday and I need as much supportive evidence as I can gather. The bed issues are :-
“Sometimes the bed descends uninvited.
When the bed is up the mechanism is very noisy (clonking noises from both sides).
After a nights sleep in the bed you need to be a weightlifter to push the bed up. I find the only solution is to get under the bed and push it up with my shoulders.
It is very difficult to get the bed engaged in its locking mechanism both sides (probably contributes to point 1.).”
