    But still, the bed covers and limits access to the galley and side door. Wonder where it stows in "daytime" use?

    My best guess is that it accordions up against the front bulkhead, forming that control panel looking thing in one of the pictures, but that doesn't quite make sense given the pictures, either.
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    It looks like the bed is stationary, the ceiling in the galley area is the bottom of the bed platform. On the outside, the side door is below the roof section when it is lowered, inside there is a stepwell to get down to the door. In the one picture looking back at the seating area you can see three steps you have to ascend to get to the seating area. Looks like they had to raise the floor back there to clear the rear wheel, while the front section can be lower.

    In the pics of the bed and the lounge, where's the range? I doubt it's been folded out of the way or otherwise covered.

    I'm starting to wonder if we're not looking at two different floor plans. Something just doesn't add up.

    I'm assuming its obstructed from view by the large cabinet thing on the right next to the stove. But it DOES seem to be a bit off from that perspective.

    At anyrate it is a pretty danged cool idea. Would make a great RV IMO.

    Look at the 7th picture down from the top, the range is just forward of that wood closet/pantry thing. Notice the top of the pantry is below the level of the upper bed platform, theres a space there. Now, in pic 10 the view is from the raised platform the couches are set on, looking forward and down at the sunken galley area. The wooden closet/pantry is clearly visible on the right, and the gap between the top and the bed platform is still there. You just cant see the range because of the angle, the pantry blocks the view. #11, you can see the top of the pantry on the left.

    It looks like the inside of an IKEA store.
