Default 19' Class C from Four Winds

I'm trying to get some more info and photos of Four Winds 19' Class C motor home.

7 1/2 feet wide
fiberglass-and-aluminum
6-foot 8-inch ceilings
a full bath and shower
convertible booth dinette
full-size refrigerator
two-burner cooktop
microwave
MSRP starting at $59,100.00

There's more competition in the small motorized RV market now than in recent history with new 25' Class A's viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1092 and now a 19' Class C.

Found this about what I assume is the new FW Ventura. Another Sprinter chassis model.
There are some comments at the end of the first link, one being the better gas mileage of the
diesel engine being offset partly by the cost of the diesel fuel.
It comes with what appears to be an extra portable toilet. Is that new or normal?

Thanks Mike. I should have mentioned it is on a Ford Chassis.

Four Winds Debuts 19-Foot Class C Floorplan

Four Winds International Corp., Elkhart, Ind., has introduced a short, 19-foot rear-kitchen Class C floorplan in its Four Winds/Chateau/Dutchmen sister brands on a 9,600-pound Ford E-350 cutaway chassis. “It's set up for two people, and you can park it in any parking lot in the U.S.,” said Jon Krider, Four Winds marketing manager. The company estimates the coach will get 14-15 mpg with its Ford 5.4L V-8 gas engine, which is a substantial increase in fuel economy over a traditional Class C, Krider said. At just over 7 1/2 feet wide, the Four Winds fiberglass-and-aluminum 19-G floorplan features 6-foot 8-inch ceilings, a full bath and shower, convertible booth dinette, full-size refrigerator and a two-burner cooktop with microwave. MSRP starts at $59,100.
I sent an email to Four Winds asking for more photos.

Here's some more info on the Class B Ventura by Four Winds:

viewtopic.php?t=993

I think 19' Class C may be popular with Class B purchasers. If it it is truly 19' then it will be one of the shortest new motor homes available.

Quick comparisons:
Roadtrek 170 is 18’ 9” but it increases to 19' 7" with the spare tire on back.
Roadtrek 190 is 20’ 5” but it increases to 21' 3" with the spare tire on back.
Roadtrek SS-Agile is 19’ 5” but it increases to 20' 3" with the spare tire on back.
