That is a good video We get to see a lot of the stuff that we've discussed here like the under bed storage, two batteries & Truma. Easy stand-up shower.

Did you pick up that they said the refrigerator is 4.3 cu ft? I don't think that is correct. I think it's a 3.4 cu ft.

The 59k is finally unveiled in this nice video. What's interesting is that Winnebago went shopping to equip the ProMaster with quality euro-equipement: Froli bed springs, Truma heating, Fiamma awning, roof and bike rack. The spacious layout will appeal to couples who like to sleep on separate beds (and eat on separate tables!) but it unfortunately doesn't change much to the very low interior design standards of Winnebago.

I liked the detailled inspection of the underside of the vehicle showing the tanks and batteries. I was also curious to see how the Fiamma awning and rack fits the ProMaster. I have a "long shot" project of attaching a 21' tandem sea kayak to my already crowded roof.
Got to have ambitious projects!

My project to attach a 21' kayak on the driver side of the roof on my 21' ProMaster. Looked at the possibility of having a custom built side mounted rack so that the kayak doesn't protrude over the solar panels.

windcrasher - do we know which fridge that is? It's said to be pretty deep. Deeper than normal so IDK? James is a pretty detail oriented guy and I'd be inclined to think 4.3 might be accurate? Either way, the small fridge is would be a big tradeoff for me personally. At least the bathroom seems a decent place to put a cooler.

I really like this and am envisioning it outside with light flooding in vs. the dark factory. Wish WGO would add the tech in it to their other rigs. Love the plug for a portable solar system.

GeorgeB. Could you please explain your statement of Winnebago's "Low design standards ". I love the design of the 59k. If you are speaking of quality of build or materials then you may have a point.

FWIW, all the cabinets are provided by an Italian supplier (same in the 59G) and are not made in house. W builds the kitchen cabinet, bulkheads and the bed bases.
