CAMPING-BED.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 25, 1910.

Application filed May 4, 1908. Serial No. 430,764.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EM. LEHMANN, a citizen of the United States, residin at Hammond, in the county of Lake and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in'Camping-Beds, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to camping beds and.

has for its primary object to provide a bed having a tent or cover. Preferably the frame for the cover is integral with the bed and. is collapsible and, in its most desirable embodiment, the entire device shall be light, strong and colla sible into small compass. 4 The invention ms for further objects such new and improved constructions in camping beds and articles of like character as are shown in the accompanying drawings and described in the followin specification.

The invention, in a pre erred embodiment, is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure 1 is a side elevation of the camping bed set u Fig. 2 is a section on the line 2-2 of ig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows. Fig. 3 is. a longitudinal, vertical section through the bed set up, the dotted lines showing the-bed partly collapsed. Fig. 4 is a side view of the bed collapsed. Fi 5 is a detail in perspective, of the foot on of the bottom section, showing the hinge connecting the folding members of the bottom section and the attachment of one of the supports. Fig. 6 is a vertical section on line 66 of Fig. 5. Fig. 7 is a detail section on line 7-7 of Fig. 1. Fig. 8 is a detail showing the arrangement of the tent cover at the rear hinge; and Fig. 9 is a plan view of this hinge.

Like characters Ofreference indicate like parts in the several figures of the drawin s.

The bed consists, generally speakin o a bottom or bed section which s preferably folding or collapsible, and preferably provided with folding legs to support the bed section, and a top or tent section mounted on the bed frameand which, in the form shown, is collapsible so as to lie fiat against the bottom section.

The bottom section preferably consists of two side rails, folding end frames hinged to the side rails, and a fabric which is stretched across the side rails and end frames. 10, 10 indicate the side rails. They are supported by the pairs of legs 11 braced by the transverse braces 12. '10 one end of the side rails is hin ed an end frame 13 which, when extende lies in the same plane with the side rails. At the other end of the side rails is hinged a similar end frame 14, which, when extended, is tilted up somewhat from the plane of the side rails, so as to form a support for the pillow. A single strip of fabric 15 may be stretched across the whole bottom section.

One end of a strap 16 is secured to the end frame 13 and a strap 16, having a buckle, to the transverse brace 12 of the supporting legs at this end of the bottom section. Similarly a strap 17 having a buckle, may be secured to end frame 14 and the strap 17 to the corresponding brace 12. These pairs of straps, or other equivalent devices, serve to keep the legs against the abutments and in proper sup orting position so as to prevent any acci ental collapsing of the supports and, at the same time, keep the foldim ends of the bottom section properly extende and the fabric between the same taut. The same straps may be used for securing the arts together when the camping bed is colapsed, as shown in Fig. 4. p

The end frames may be hinged to the side rails in any desired manner. I have shown and prefer to use, a particular design '0 hinge, which is very strong and rigi and afi'ord's an abutment for the-supports. One of these hinges is shown in detail in Fi 5, 6 and 9. The part of the hin e on t e end frame consists of a plate 18 w ich may be riveted through thewood of the end frame by rivet 19, or otherwise secured thereto and which is provided with right angle extensions or lates 20 and 21 lym below and above the rame, respectively, an connected together through the frame y the rivet or bolt 22. Plate 18 has the extension 23 which is connected by pivot 24 with a similar extension 25 on a plate 26 on the adjacent side rail, this plate being secured by rivet 27 and having extensions 28 and 29 below and above the rail secured together by rivet 30. The bottom extension 28 is provided with a lug 31 extending inwardly so as to form an abutment for the leg of the bed. The hinge described is one of the hin -es at the foot of the bed; the hinge atthe end of the bed is in all respects the same end frame.

The tent or top section of the bed preferablyconsists of a plurality of folding sup:

ports over which is stretched a tent of canvas or other fabric.- I have shown two of these supports at each end ofthe bed. They consist preferably of .wire hoops 32 having their ends 33 bent over and extending into keepers 34 on the side rails. Any means might be employed for pivoting the hoops I A fabric tent 35 is to the bed section. stretched over the supports and secured to the side rails and end frames. In order to accommodate for the folding of the end frames, the .tentfabric has gussets 36 at these points which may be filled with pieces of elastic fabric 37. I At one or both sides of the tent an opening is left which may be covered. with a flap 38, which may be fastened down to the side rails over the carriage buttons 39 or in any other manner. Preferably the edge 40 of this-flap extends over the edge of the" tent. On the inside, the flap may be provided with flies 41, by means of which it may 'be secured to the inside of the tent, s'nap fasteners 42 or other similar means being provided. Preferably the flap,

when made of canvas or like fabric, has a central opening which is covered with'mosquito netting 43, which can be covered by a curtain 44 provided with'snap fasteners, or the like, 45, by means of which it may be fastened to the roof. Across one endof the tent is a stripof fabric 46, which forms a bag or shelf .when the tent is extended. A pocket 47 may be provided on .one of the inside walls.

As will be seen from Figs. 8 and 4, the bed may be collapsed and folded into very small compass. and 17, the end frames may be folded over on to the middle portion of the bed bottom, the hoops being preferably so arranged that they willffold in under the end frames, as

will clearly be seen from the dotted line "position of these parts in Fig. 3. The legs a folding bottom section, of a collapsible fold up alon side of the side rails. The bed folded up is s 1OW11 in Fi g. 4. It will be seen that it folds into a thin, comparatively short parcel. The parts may be held. together by means of the straps l6 and 17 I do not limit myself to the precise ar rangements, constructions and devices shown and described, as the bed is capable of some modification without departure from my invention.
