The new RV thing: Murphy beds (video)

Murphy beds, those that store out of the way against a wall, are gaining popularity in RVs as evidenced at the recent Hershey RV Show in September 2017.

In this short video of a walk-through of a Forest River-Salem Cruise Lite West travel trailer, see how at least one version of a Murphy bed works. The short demonstration comes toward the end of the video.

The Murphy bed, by the way, was born of necessity — Inventor William L. Murphy (1876-1957) had a need to hide his bed so he could entertain his lady friend while living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco in the late 19th century.
