You know, I wondered about that "AdVantage Package (Mandatory)" business...
(Very last paragraph above.)
If it's "mandatory", why list it separately?
It SOUNDS like an "option" (read: extra charge) thing, but...
Aren't the "front and rear fiberglass caps" part of the TRAILER???

Maybe an assembly line list. Without this stuff it's just another SOB (plus interior trim)?

Overall, I like the initial looks of it. My first thoughts:

1. Seems low on storage space.
2. I like the ducted a/c.
3. How do you repair body damage? Seems like it would need to go back to the factory.
4. I do not like the tub/shower unit. It seems too wide (wasted space) and I don't like the color of the fixtures (no contrast).
5. Strange that there are no specification numbers yet.
