Murphy Beds in RVs - Gaining Traction!

Ah, getting a comfortable night’s sleep is always a consideration when it comes to buying an RV. But then tying up valuable living space with a bed is also something you should consider. The solution has been around since the late 1800s, Murphy beds.

In the past few years, Murphy beds have been gaining a lot of popularity in the smaller RVs for the same reason it was originally created. Well, almost. You see, back in the late 1800s, it was frowned upon for a woman to enter a man’s bedroom. And the story goes that in order to entertain a certain young woman, William Murphy’s invention converted his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain. And now, I’m sure you can figure out the rest of the story.

With living space being at a prime in RVs, and especially small RVs, it’s easy to see why more and more people are opting for a Murphy bed setup. 

Like early Murphy bed designers and builders that used to disguise their beds as doors, cabinets, and even pianos, RV interior designers are doing a great job of integrating a fold-down bed so that unless you’re looking for it, you wouldn’t even know it was there.

As you can see here, the amount of space you gain with choosing a Murphy bed option is like having two different floor plans in the same RV within a matter of minutes. You may also want to consider a Murphy bed setup when upgrading or remodeling your RV interior. Watch the full Rollin’ On TV show 2020-04 here.
