Fold down/murphy bed in Newmars - anyone?

In my (seems like neverending) quest to find our first MH, I came across a Country Star 37 foot MH that had an interesting setup in the bedroom. Two nice lounge chairs, two slides (port and starboard) and a murphy/fold down bed that came out of the end/south of the MH.

Wondering if anyone has this setup, as I'm interested in how comfortable and stable the bed is. Seems like an interesting idea to have a sitting room/second area that you can relax in, maybe read, watch TV, or get away from your S.O. for a while if you are doing different things without having the bed in the way, and then at night when it is bed-time you simply fold it down.

But it would suck if the bed wasn't comfortable.

The Murphy Bed idea is really GREAT for making a multi-purpose room...has nothing to do with the maker...it's all in the mattress.
...We have a Murphy Bed in our Outlaw.

I submit that the mattress could be terrible or might be great at first, then fail over time.
Thankfully, mattress swaps or adding a topper is about the easiest upgrade you can make.

The trick with a Murphy Bed is to ensure the box can contain the size mattress you desire.
And, as has been said repeatedly "too big lasts a few days - too small is forever"

Our primary sleeping area mattresses are still in good condition, but we still added memory foam toppers to make them even better.
We LOVE our Murphy Bed
