The bathroom on the passenger side opposite the refrigerator is a fatal design flaw in my opinion. Something has to give in dimensions. A Sprinter is basically 70" wide. A decent bathroom should be at least 26" wall to out and a refrigerator needs 24". That leaves you a 22" aisle at the very best. To overcome that narrowness you have to sacrifice the functionality of the bathroom with expandable doors on an already too narrow bathroom or expand bathroom/showers into the aisle. Those are both tricks Roadtrek employs. I've measured some models with aisle dimensions down to 18-19" which is hardly wide enough for one person unless they turn sideways. I could go on and on about functionality but the dimensions are the big ones.

Understand, but for me the window is about having continuous (or trying to at least) visibility along the passenger side when driving. At camp, it is about light. If the sliding door has a window and the galley has a window, when the sliding door is open, there is still light coming in - it's about the light, not the view.

I think FitRV may have added the window on the 59G to also have more light in - there are not a lot of windows on the 59G, and others have commented on it being a "bit dark" in there, IIRC.
