Power bed / sofa option in new DS, MA, ...

I was just wondering if anyone's seen and / or has pictures of the new power bed / sofa option in the 2014 DS, MA, ...

ISSUU - Newmar 2014 Mountain Aire Brochure by Newmar Corp

I'm particularly curious to know how much room there would be when you're on the road (without having seen it, I would think the bed pretty much touches the cabinets when the slides are in so you'd have to climb over the sofa side to get in and you'd be right up against the cabinet / tv.

Neat feature for families (interestingly enough, when we got out first mh about 6-7 years old (94 Allegro Bay, no slides) my wife suggested that we take out the bed from the master and put in a hide-a-bed with belts so that the kids could sit back there and watch tv while we're driving. Although I think it could also be used in motion.

If anyone has more info, I'd be curious to hear about it (even though a 2014 DS or MA or ... isn't in my near future unless I win the lotto ). It also looks to be a $4k option in the DS so not exactly super cheap :(

You can also see the bed at the Newmar website on the Mountain Aire video. When we were at the factory in May, the story was that the bed was a Matt Miller idea since he travels with his kids.

Thanks for the info on the video but it doesn't show on much space is available, particularly when the slides are in (probably when we'd make the most use of it).
