Hi all,

This seems to be well thought out!

Very interesting. Looks well thought out with attention to quality materials as well. My issue would be they'd have to work really hard to make it any uglier!! Some cosmetics would be a tremendous help....and some decent looking wheels.

Very interesting design Don and informative video also. The main attraction for me would be the 50 gals of FW, over all size, monocoque construction and over all strength, ground clearance, insulation, supportability of all the systems, leveling system and ease of access from the drivers area to the house. Not sure what this would cost, but would expect it to be more than a standard B plus. I could live without the sound system, recycled water, and other electronic systems. It looks like they buy the B box from someone else. I wonder if it would be less expensive to start with just the floor then install the systems before the walls and top go on.

Is the ground clearance low or am I imagining that?

On second thought I googled the B box RV cost. They said it was between $300-$490k I think I will pass. Still a nice design, they just need to make it more affordable.

I am wondering about the fresh water system. is all fresh water stored in that one tank, recycled and not? I think I would want at least a small separate FW tank for drinking, etc. purposes.

Looks like a nice idea for the cost-is-no-object person. However, with all that one-off designed stuff, finding parts in the future might be a real problem. Like finding Roadtrek specific parts now.
Anything you build now can break in the future!

Bumpy,

The gray water is filtered, and the toilet can be flushed with that water.

It is, too rich for my blood. But I can wish.
