Leisure Travel Vans Unveils Next-Generation Murphy Bed Lounge Models

A Special Report from Mike Elias, Leisure Travel Vans

Winkler, Manitoba, September 13, 2022 Leisure Travel Vans today unveiled the all-new Murphy Bed Lounge, soon to be available on both the Unity and Wonder product lines.

Building on the success of the company’s flagship Unity Murphy Bed model, the new Murphy Bed Lounge offers a host of new features, refinements, and premium components. The new model also brings features such as a slide-out room and ducted air conditioning to the Wonder product line for the first time.

“The idea behind the Murphy Bed Lounge was to design a re-imagined, more contemporary version of our iconic Murphy Bed model and to offer it on both the Unity and Wonder product lines,” said Angelo Natuzzi, Lead Product Designer at Leisure Travel Vans. “We wanted to give our customers a more enjoyable RV with an updated, contemporary look, greater interior and exterior storage, and a brighter, more open feeling living area. I believe we accomplished this.”

Unity MBL 2023

Coming soon to both the Unity and Wonder product lines, the next-generation Murphy Bed Lounge offers a completely re-imagined layout based on LTV’s flagship Unity Murphy Bed model.

Unity MBL

The Murphy Bed Lounge features an all-new patented Leisure Lounge system, redesigned modern interior with more natural light, and several new premium components.

Redesigned Leisure Lounge System

At the heart of the new model is the completely redesigned, patented Leisure Lounge system featuring upgraded dual reclining chairs, an updated dinette table system, and a large, panoramic window, drawing in an abundance of natural light in both day and night modes. The reclining chairs include power footrests that are now longer and offer better head support, providing comfort in every position. When night falls, fold the bed and sleep soundly or stare at the stars above on the luxurious, nearly king-size (65-inch x 74-inch) Murphy bed with built-in, adjustable headrests. Watch your favourite movie or show on the 40-inch TV and enjoy the high-quality sound from the standard sound bar and subwoofer. For those that can’t get enough of the outdoors, a new optional 40-inch outdoor TV with sound bar is available.

Re-imagined Layout

Although the overall concept remains the same as the original Unity Murphy Bed, the new Murphy Bed Lounge features a completely re-imagined layout. The result is a multitude of major and minor improvements, all adding up to a more enjoyable RVing experience.

The updated living area features a relocated entrance door, offering unobstructed views of the campsite from the large picture window directly across the Leisure Lounge. The two relocated hanging wardrobes now feature adjustable and removable shelving.

The redesigned galley offers a new, integrated cubby system and a relocated pull-out pantry. In the slide-out, an innovative folding mechanism built into the Murphy bed reveals a large panoramic window, drawing in additional natural light to the front living area.

The rear lavatory is mirrored from the current Unity Murphy Bed and features a second, large, hanging wardrobe complete with adjustable and removable shelving. For space separation, an updated, residential-style, ultra-low-profile pocket door is found between the galley and lavatory. The flagship corner shower completes the generous, residential-sized dry bathroom.

Modern, Luxurious Interior

Modern European design and luxurious materials such as Ultraleather®, FENIX NTM®, Corian®, and Schatt decor cabinetry finishes are found throughout. An abundance of accent lighting allows the user to create a multitude of atmospheres, from extra bright to cozy, mood lighting. The futuristic ceiling panels provide soft, diffused lighting, as well as hide and integrate ceiling components for a modern look.

Truma Aventa

Truma Premium Climate Package

Adding even greater levels of comfort, convenience and utility to the RVing experience, several premium next-generation components are being piloted in the Murphy Bed Lounge. Utilizing German engineering, the ultra-quiet Truma Aventa air conditioner provides the perfect balance of cooling and humidity while minimizing noise in a contemporary, energy-efficient, low-profile design. Automatic cooling, air circulation, dehumidification, and night mode are just some of the convenient features of this brand-new air conditioning unit.

To ensure comfort in all temperatures, the Truma VarioHeat furnace has been added. The VarioHeat offers automatic heating power, and depending on the set temperature, operating levels will adapt to one of three levels. In night mode, the furnace runs reliably on the lowest, nearly inaudible level, allowing you to sleep soundly. Alternatively, by using the boost function, airflow is increased significantly to heat up your motorhome quickly.

Where to See it First

The Unity and Wonder Murphy Bed Lounge models will be on display at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, from September 14–18, 2022. For more information, please visit www.leisurevans.com/murphy-bed-lounge or visit your local Leisure Travel Vans dealer.
