So, I researched this awhile back, and discovered that you can get the hardware you need on the cheap if you buy it at the right place.

You can use boat seat swivels from Walmart for the bed swivel. The atwood brand is plenty beefy at only 8 bucks apiece.

Hydraulic ( pneumatic? ) auto hood supports can handle the controlled raising and lowering of the bed, and they are cheap too, but very capable if you make the right choice.
