Murphy Bed

Wondering if anyone has any opinions on the comfort of the Murphy beds! Looking as a possible KS25

I have the murphy bed in my Microlite 21DS. I added a 1.5" memory foam topper and it sleeps wonderfully. Storing the bed and setting up the sofa takes very little time and effort. The usability of the space is most excellent especially for a smaller trailer like mine. With the large dinette in the 3' slide, bed stored and sofa set up, we can easily and comfortably seat up to 7 adults in that small space. Most of my friends are amazed with the amount of space available.

Highly recommend the murphy!

The DW and I love our 25KS and its murphy bed. We put a 3" topper on ours, almost too soft.


GREAT camper . . .

Love my Murphy bed - just hope that nothing happens to the mechanism that puts it up.

The Murphy bed is fine. We added a topper to make it a little softer.

How sturdy would you rate the murphy bed? As for the topper, did you have to cut to size or was it a direct fit? Where did you get it?

It seems sturdy. It uses small hydraulic cylinders to raise and lower. I bought the topper from Amazon. If you order the RV short Queen it will fit. That's very important, if it doesn't say short Queen it won't fit. (It's not a true Queen)

Thanks genehorn. I've seen a few with varied thickness. You think I should shy away from thinker? Do you think 6 inches would be too much?

I bought the Denver 343494. That's two inches. It comes down to preference, I think it will hold a thicker one.
