Bed could fold into a couch, but we never used that. It is an American car, so the fuel economy is not the greatest, but the car is very durable. No issues while travelling for 10 months, all was mainly maintenance or precaution. Cosmetic rust and a few scratches on the paint, nothing bad. Transfer case fluid will be changed now.
Bed could even fit me (196cm) and my girlfriend (178cm), with an "extension trick" ;)
