Hello, I’ve been lurking for a few years and I’ve been checking in occasionally with the lithium battery efforts, among others but we are finally getting close to actually getting an interstate. We test drove one last weekend in Buda, TX and were impressed by the maneuverability and drivability of the van. However, I have a few questions about options and possibilities with the interstate, if you don’t mind entertaining them.
1: do the interstates come with a push-button start option?
2: can an “add a room” or similar awning wall system be used with the interstate awning?
3: has anyone experimented with being able to raise and lower the rear lounge to be able to have some cargo space if needed? (To accomodate a motorcycle for instance). I understand it wouldn’t be able to go all the way to the roof due to the storage bins, and we are not interested in the twin bed
4: why does airstream replace the 12v
A/C on the roof that MB provides with the sprinter with 120v A/C? Is the 120v A/C any better, or is it merely to be able to run it when the engine is off? Wouldn’t it just be easier to have a larger battery bank than carry around the propane and generator?
I’m sure I’ll have more questions, but thanks in advance for your answers.
