Yes itís a lot, I guess. I donít really know practically speaking but we plan on boondocking as much as possible...meaning in the middle of nowhere, not at Walmart. Not sure how long the ac will run but itíll be mostly in those too humid to sleep nights. It comes light on solar, 250watts so weíre waiting to see if thereís more room on top. 4x4 is required in some spots, like Death Valley Eureka Dunes. Still excited but the delay does dampen it.

If you drive some each day, your batteries will be topped up. I think you'll be fine. I envy you for your new rig, not for the wait. Would be a shame if it's just the awning holding your's up.

Inquiring minds will want a lot of pictures once you get it. Good luck!

DRPEGGAU - Now you're talking, DVNP is in my neck of the woods, short drive from Vegas. We usually take multiple trips there in Nov Dec Jan & Feb. Sometimes stay in Furnace Creek hotel, sometimes tent camping and now full hookups in our AI. When we go to the dunes, we have to take the truck coz obviously my AI is a pave only ride.

PS. That's a long ways to go from Naperville I used to work out of the HP Naperville office near Diehl Rd. from 1984-1989. Hope your AI gets to you soon.k

DRPEGGAU - You said you are getting a 3000 watt converter/inverter. I believe you meant a 3000 watt charger/inverter. So some choices are a Magnum MSH-M 3000 watt hybrid or a Xantrex SW 3000 watt. What did you pick?

Also are the solar panels the flexible type or the more tradtional glass rigid type?

Hey Mike, please send me some pics of the table set up in the front if you can. No info or images of this yet. Iíll be out so wonít even be able to pick mine up if it comes in. Maybe itíll be on display there since itís not here! ~John

First, I'm jealous and if we could speed up our plans for a north eastern trip by a few weeks, we'd love to be at the Hershey RV Show too.

Please check out the bed on the passenger side near the galley. Pics have shown a possible small to moderately large square-shaped intrusion. Maybe a weird photo distortion or shadow, but several photos show something. Would appreciate a post when you get back.

Safe travels.

Brad Simcoe from Arbogastsrvs sent me this picture of the table set up in the back. He also let me know there is no room behind the couch area for a set of golf clubs.

Mmmmm. A picture of the back area would have nice for him to send too. Gotta be some storage under the rear seat (maybe just not quite enough length or width for golf clubs).

In the pictures in the expanded brochure that came out the other day, that hook for that style of table is not visible on the back bench seat and there are no holes in the floor for the table either. I am more curious as to whether or not the table set up in front has realistic space for only eating from the front seats for two people?

Thanks ML. I plan to put the Lithium under the bench but we will have to wait and see.

Until the actual models are released, there are conflicting pics out there. Maybe some taken at different times in their prototype process.
