I feel I must defend the murphy bed in our old 2306 😉... While I admit to the gap having been annoying the first couple nights (until we added the memory foam)... And I had to be a little more creative without a pass through (we never had a fold-up issue)... We absolutely loved the murphy bed option. I'd consider it the main feature of our old 2306, hands down. Every camper has its advantages and short comings. No other option, in my opinion, gives you the best of all worlds (sofa and dinette) in such a light-weight, minimal footprint camper, like the murphy bed option. And the ease of towing... And being able to show up at any campground in a 23' camper without the fear of "will it fit?" Had our son not become a mini-giant, we'd still have it.
In my opinion, I think every camper series should have a murphy bed option. Imagine having two sofa's and a dinette in a 31' camper with a slideout? Woo hoo!
