Way too much bathroom space for our tastes. Also looks to have very little storage space for such a big B (24' I assume from the model number). I think we would really miss some sort of rear door access storage for things like lawn chairs, tables, etc that might be wet or dirty.

I am excited about a twin bed model. The kitchen and twin beds reminds me of their 220 model so I suspect that the pictures of the 220 will give us an idea of what the Arriva will look like.

I like the easy-to-get-out-of twin beds. And the big bathroom.

You need the 24 foot long van to make this floor plan work. My old van ends where the rear bathroom begins on the Arriva

I wonder if they have a rear step so you can get into the bathroom from outside if you want.

I'd be afraid of falling out while sitting on the stool!

I like the layout because it appears to solve both the class B dry bathroom issue, and the disturbing your copilot in the middle of the night going to the toilet issue, with a simple, functional, floor plan.
Questions would include, but are not limited to, can the bed be easily made into a queen/king configuration, and does the sink/range/stove counter space using approximately half of the side door opening, present any issues? Maybe someone with that chassis can supply some insight, knowing the physical dimensions of the side door? Will entrance and egress be a problem?
My only other concern, which will likely kill any chance of an average person ever owning one, will be the probable mega-price tag.
The toilet comes with a three point seat belt harness, so it appears it is NHTSA compliant.

Shouldn't be any issues getting in and out since our ERA is the same way with it's counter, unless there's something there not showing in the pic.
Not knowing how much they get for the rest of their line of units, it's hard to judge the price. However I can't imagine them being any cheaper than the ERA is which is now going for low to mid $80's for the 70A on the '14 chassis....
