Murphy bed VS Slide Out Rear VS Two beds in the back

Question for all you MB sprinter owners...

So wife LOVES the idea of the murphy bed, I also think it's cool but I worry about not being able to see out of the side where the bed is up and I worry about the resale value ( does anyone else like this murphy bed too)

I love the ones with the slide out in the back, but it looks pretty tight....

We also like the ones where there are two twins in the back, but you can make it into a full size bed.

We travel for business, so we still have our house. Sleeping a few feet from each other in two twins is not the end of the world while we travel, seems like one of the better setups... Any owner experiences to share?

I notice you guys are in Austin - dont know which way you're headed next but I'm just down the road from you in Houston - if you happen to be driving this way, I'd love to buy you dinner and talk more about your RV.

Rewind, I see you've already moved past into LA and beyond

You're on the move sir!

Well I'm on the fence. I'm back and forth between something like a Forester MBS or View or Unity.... or a Brave.

I like the MBS for the car like cab, gas mileage, driver and passenger entry door, and small easy feel while driving.... Just seems like a very easy machine to manage.

I like the Brave for it's cool styling, extra room inside, hate the MPG, and it seems as aerodynamic as a brick.

Also thinking about gas station maneuverability.
