And here's another question for Pam and Don. If you took the side tables out, that must mean there's nothing under them ... so it would be possible to put doors on them and have even more storage? (For us, with shelves in, it'd be a great place to store shoes.)

Our trailer is a 2011 so I think our side tables are different than yours, ours were more like a magazine rack. On the sofa we undid staples on back of board cut fabric in half, cut board in half restapled and put big hinge on each side and L brackets to close. Very easy and so worth it.

We can get it into our PUP because the sides of the beds are not attached. We're trusting that we can take the screen off the bathroom window in the TT, and get it in and out that way. Everything else, including the festival tent and accessories we use when we hold a booth for our Scottish clan at Celtic events in AZ, we can get into the bed of the truck just fine -- with a little "idging" and "oodging," anyway. ;-)
Sounds like you need a (Machine Shop) to cut your 12' pole into and place a connector tube inside the (2) 6' tubes! Youroo!!

Youroo, we can't cut the pole, 'cause when we dance, the ribbons braid around all but the bottom four feet, and we use each pole for 10 years, so there are many layers of ribbons. If we can't put it in the trailer though the back window, we'll figure a way to carry it on top. :-)

Anybody put a regular size 60 x 80 inch mattress on their Murphy bed? Any problems folding up?

We have the 2304DS with murphy bed and upgraded Serta. Very comfy! Great design, two slides on this little guy. Huge room inside. What a floor plan.

Larry: when the slides are in on that 2304DS how much room is there to get to the control panel? Reason I ask that being a big man I am worried I couldn't reach the panel with the sides in and the wife would have to let out the sides. Any info is appreciated.

Mbornzo, I am pretty big guy, not tall, but big, and I have no problems getting to control panel in my 2304DS.

We love our 2306 with Murphy bed and couch. Put topper of 2" honeycomb foam and 2" memory foam and it's at least as comfortable as bed at home. Every summer we spend about 3 months in the unit. Only down side of Murphy bed is dropping something under the head of the bed. Real hassle to get stuff out if you leave it on end shelf and it falls down by front of trailer. Eyeglasses are a real nightmare
. Once you can see them with a light, usually have to move the mattress cack and swat at them with flyswater, wooden spoon, etc and keep the bed from pivoting up with your head going down as the bed tries to flip up. We've managed to recover everything that has fallen under the bed. A round camp lantern that rolled everywhere was a paticular challenge.

As I said we love the unit. My wife's main complaint is we haven't found a good reading light. The bed has a shelf on each side with a Cabnet directly above. It's hard to direct light to where it's needed (hense the lantern problem which didn't work well).
