Love the Floor-Plan...

We picked up our Travel Trailer Friday. I had a request in another thread to show pictures of how the Murphy Bed works in the up and down position.

First here is the floor plan of our new 2501SS; the bathroom door actually swings into the bathroom though - so you can get into it while on the road.

[image]

Here is the Sofa and Wall behind (which is actually the bottom of the Bed).

[image] [image]

Here is the Sofa placed into the Jack-knife position, before laying the wall (bed) ontop of it.

[image]

…and here is our queen size Murphy Bed, with night stands, and magazine racks on each side. There are straps, so you are able to leave the bed made and then all you have to do is lower it down. It is extremely light weight to put up and down. There is still pleanty of room to go in and out of the door if you needed.

[image]

I also have been doing a couple of things (little Mods), since Friday.

1. Hunter Digital Thermosat
[image]

2. Oxygenics Shower Head with an on/off water flow valve
[image] [image]

3. Concertone ZX75. The surround sound would play through the speakers when you watched a DVD, but not just watching from the TV itself. …So, I now made connections into the Concertone (to act as a receiver) for the TV. Now when watching TV it plays through the surround sound as well; not just when, watching a DVD. I replaced the Land Line Phone Jack, as I won't be needing that. I couldn't find the dark color plate though.

4. Added, an iPOD 3.5mm cable (really a Hard Mod here [emoticon]
[image]

5. Lined all cabinets with Non-Skid Matting

Thank for taking the time to view. Please feel free to share your comments. I can't wait to really start using the Camper[emoticon]

I saw some Murphy beds at the local RV show and they are really cool! The regular beds really do take up so much space... Thanks for the pictures!

Modding already??? Nothing like diving in head first! Great job! [emoticon]

Did you make the Murphy bed from scratch or did you buy it somewhere? If bought can you share the source? If homemade could you share some particulars (maybe even with pics)?

Straight from the factory, Forest River Inc. We searched floor-plans, as we wanted a large "open floorplan", but without going any larger that very large in length. This floor plan (Rockwood 2501SS), as shown in the first post gives that openness with having a Murphy Bed (Sofa, by Day; Queen Bed, by night).

This camper gave us all we wanted and is only 27ft bumper to coupling. Very nice use of the space.

This is a cool idea! I see a curtain there off to the side. Does it "close" off the Murphy Bed or is it just for the Jacknife sofa?

Yes the Curtain there does close off the area when the Bed is down, if you wish, giving you privacy. In the plan above around the bunk area there is also a privacy curtain that will close off the bunk area as well, but still affording you a walkway to the bathroom.

I don't have it partitioned off, but you can see it next to the bathroom.

Here is a better shot that actually shows the track around the bunk area for the privacy curtain:

Thanks. I've posted so much of the interior that I figured I may as well add the kitchen area, too.

So Here it goes:

Thanks for taking the time to see our new camper and family Memory Maker...
