Default murphy bed

2019 Vintage Cruiser 19CSK. 1st time TT owner, totally a newbie. Would it be feasible or even advisable to replace the bed with a murphy bed.

Look under your bed. I'm guessing you have things such as a fresh water tank and water pump under there? This could create an issue.

I have been told that no one will install a Murphy bed in an RV. However, if it is bolted down properly , it should work fine.

The Ameri-Lite 197BH and 192DS both come standard with Murphy beds (as examples). It's not the question of a Murphy bed, it's a question of free floor space. Most "standard bed" travel trailers have mechanics installed under them, such as a fresh water tank and pump (depending on the model). Makes it difficult to modify for a Murphy bed.

Depends on WHAT IS UNDER? Often= Pump, tank, or electric equipment= obstacles to Murphy.

I said that twice already, but thanks for the contribution.
