It's not a retractable style, it just slides back over the rear part and can stop in any position. It didn't look that elegant to me but the simple frame and the way its bolted in will probably ensure it has a longer life.
The rear door screen is quite different in that it's built into a laminated frame at the sides and slides down from a box hung under the rear overhead storage bin. And this one is electrically controlled by a small remote.
Looks like an adaptation from the Eddie Bauer model ...

You do realize that your seats are not leather?

I guess not

The upholstery on the walls isn't even real mouse fur…

Just as well; how many mice would you have to skin to cover those walls?

The Grand Tour is designed for what its name says - a grand tour. It is not designed for families, soccer moms, weekenders, entertaining guests, etc. It is basically a two person Class B motorhome that should be much more comfortable and versatile for staying out on extended trips by not wasting space to accommodate any additional people or try to be all things to all people. If that is not your style then it might not appeal to you.

BTW, there are limits to design between the back wheel wells and the cab. Not much can be gained for all the stuff that goes there when you extend the van in the back 16" expansion. What you get is possibly longer beds and definitely quite a bit more storage. So, with the Grand Tour eliminating the passenger captain chairs that space between gets better use for two people especially if you don't or don't intend to carry passengers. So, if you are on a grand tour such as a 2-3 month trip to Alaska you should enjoy it much better than with the Lounge.
