Murphy Bed in White Hawk 20MRB or 23MBH

This goes out to those that have a Jayco models that have a Murphy Bed.
Dear Husband and I have looked at both the 20 MRB & 23 MBH. The concern is the bed being in the travel position causing lots of wear on the latches and cabinets where it locks into. Is there a lot of problems with that on these models or are we being overly concerned about this?
We are both going back and forth between the White Hawk models and the Jay Feather 23B Hybrid. We are currently in a pop up camper and wish to lessen our set up time.
Any info you guys can share would be wonderful, and I thank you in advance for all the answers you guys share.

We've towed over 1,000 miles in the last month and have had no problem with the latches.

Recently purchased the White Hawk 23MBH. I just towed it almost 1300 miles with no issues on the latches. The bed is really secure in the stored position...no excessive moving around, so no excessive wear on the latches.

We choose the 23 MBH mainly for the Murphy bed...it allowed us to get a smaller unit, but we don't loose that 5 feet of space during the day, as its
folded up. Let me add, the bed is one of the best sleeping beds I've ever laid down on. We use the bunks for extra storage.

We have only gone on one trip so far and it was only about 20 miles but we had no problems whatsoever with the latches. We had horrible rainy weather for two straight days and really appreciated the extra room provided by being able to store the murphy bed and use the couch for extra seating. We love this trailer!

We have the 20mrb and love it. It is a little short on storage but it keeps you from accumulating to much junk.

Thank You All so much for your replies. We were apprehensive in selecting one of these models because of the murphy bed. You have all reassured us that it will be just fine. We have settled on the 23MBH model, because of the little extra storage it has in the unit. Now we just have to afford to buy it..
Thanks again!!

In negotiations for a 2015 model 23MBH. I am hoping the price of $22900 is a good price, What do you guys think?

I just bought a 2015 23mbh for 19995 and that was in California which is always more expensive. It is a jayflight not a jayhawk variety thoughm not sure which one you were looking at

I was referring to the Whitehawk Model, but I guess any model with a murphy bed would work.
We actually bought ours a week or so after I posted this question. We absolutely LOVE IT! We purchased the 2015 Whitehawk 23MBH model. We love the concept of the murphy bed and the space it provides during the day.

I've got about 1500 miles on my 2015 23mbh Whitehawk with no noticeable issues with the latches during travel. Congrats on the purchase!!
