I don't know anything from direct user experience, but when I did a brief review of the Class Bs at the Houston RV show last year, I was not impressed with Regency's fit and finish (I didn't have time to inspect the mechanicals, given the setting).

Regency appears to be painting conventional RV graphics on this new model you mention... that will not be good for future resale value. Who makes these design decisions?! The trend is toward greater sophistication and relative stealth, or at least preserving the integrity of the van's original automobile-like appearance. The trend is NOT back toward "Grandma-mobile" swoopie-doopie styling, making it look more like a $16,000 plywood box trailer instead.

I have been in one and it was solid black, no graphics. High ceiling for sure. Pretty basic looking construction, no idea about the mechanicals.

I've not been in one. The smallish freshwater tank is kinda no good for me. The on demand hot water heater is a definite no go for us as most of our camping is without hookups. and on demand water heaters waste too much water. Even when getting a site with electric to deal with running the A/C we generally do not hook up the water unless we will be draining/filling holding tanks. With the 35 gallon capacity of our old 200 RT we can go 4-7 days without dealing with the tanks and upwards of two weeks when I'm traveling solo. I like the independence that that provides.

That all said, I'm sure it will work for some folks.

We have the regency Xalta and really like it. Finish inside and out nice. We moved from a class A to the B We almost always use hookups to the hot water system works well for us.

The high roof version looks interesting. Looks like they have only been making RVs for a few years but the management have been doing conversions for a while.

When I first read about this super high-top National Traveler article, I was very excited to hear about the extra height (I'm 6'2"). But then I discovered they used the standard short wet bath and a short bed. That really burst my bubble.
