The engine needn't run ALL the time... only if you have an excessive need for 120v power. It comes with lots of battery power (most seem to have the lithiums), so perhaps only at times of extreme heat to run the AC. Your batteries will even handle a short microwave run.

I've read various comments on fuel usage when idling to use this. Some say it uses less gas and it is certainly much quieter and dependable than an Onan.

Looks like the Sunlight V2 is out. Not much difference it seems, except a price bump to the 60-70k range for advertised prices.

They have fixed a number of the issues found on the van1... still pretty basic.

Personally I would go over to a Hymer dealer and look at the Carado Banff... same vehicle, but not CW.

Has anybody be asked for an actual price quote? Unless they are as substantial as Winnebago gave us I think you would be better off spending a bit more to get a lot more. As an Era owner I'm obviously biased, but $80K seems like a lot for only 17 feet and a couple of other missing items.

Just like most RVs, the MSRP is a first offer to start negotiations. Anyone who pays it is very likely new to the RV market. The only things selling near or at MSRP are top of the line conversions like Leisure Travel.
