I might be interested. In particular it must have the bed above the cab. If you have that then I would like to know what color interior and exterior. Feel free to call me or send me an email. Would love to talk.

The reduced interior will no longer let them make it with a Murphy bed so they are changing it to a 3 section pullout couch. This ruins it for us. It messes up the table, drink holders, and means now you have to make the bed everytime you fold it out. I don't know why they couldn't just go to something simple like this - Gr8LakesCamper: VIDEO Detroit RV Show: Rockwood Ultra Lite Murphy Bed feature
It has a similar couch to what they have now, it solves the motor problems they have had, and keeps the layout just right.

Really bummed,

CharlieJ, Thanks for posting the Detroit show manual Murphy Bed video. Agreed! Simple, easy to set up, and looks like it has LOW potential for future problems. The solution / fix is this easy! Thanks!

"The solution/fix is this easy"....not so fast. Our murphy bed was in the slide room...which means reduced ceiling height. Our murphy actually dropped below the slide floor to accommodate it. That Rockwood murphy is on an end wall, which means full ceiling height.

There is another murphy bed that folds down sideways (instead of end to end) to saved ceiling height. Now that reduces the bed length to 68". So, still no viable solution.
