    Love it! I may just end up doing this to maximize space in my van conversion.

    wow! great idea and much cheaper than the expensive european type beds I have seen…but i suggest that the SHARP CORNERS be either padded or rounded, so that people do not injure themselves on the edges…and i would add a DESK DRAWER.

    I like the idea of the Murphy bed, I think that it never really got the recognition it really deserved…!
