A fold-up Murphy bed for a van is the ultimate space saver and a little effort can create a unique furniture piece.
Much work has gone into it and more is waiting to be added. So far the lower cabinets and the bed are finished and the upper cabinets will follow soon. A modern oil painting with bright primary colors is in the works, and will contrast the glossy white bed surface during daytime hours, when it is in upright position. At a later time, a foldable desk will be added to the bed, with it’s own picture, to add sophistication to the interior design of the van.
The bed size is 40” x 71”, which almost accommodates a regular twin mattress. A 6 inch memory foam mattress can be shortened a few inches, to make a perfect fit.
This design can be modified for any Ford Transit, MB Sprinter, Dodge ProMaster or other cargo van.
