Default Safari Condo Sprinter sliding shower & other options

I saw some new-to-me options and or features in a Safari Condo Sprinter model on display in their showroom.

One option was to have two fridges for extended travel. An unused one can serve as a storage unit if it is not needed.
Another was an expandable bathroom. You press a button and the walls of the bathroom slide further into the van and expand the bathroom area. You get a large stand-up shower area.

The slide-out step looked useful:



The Tripp-Lite monitor panel location seemed to me to make good use of space:

This to me is an excellent choice for those that use the shower in a way that justifies the design. For me, the current wet bath in our ERA is fine as we use it only for the toilet and extra sink. The shower has limited use.

This is innovative, and still keeps the sprinter body intact with no external slide outs. I see real long term issues with conventional slide outs and have had my share of problems with past RV like leaks, strutural issues and overall maint of a s/o. The beauty of a sprinter is no real conventional RV construction. All automotive, all steel, top, side and bottom.

Looks like a very nice unit with some interesting innovations, especially in the bath. Being a previous owner of several RV's including 3 large diesel pushers, and now a Sprinter based ERA class B, I too like the idea of NO slides in my class B.

It also looks to be a bit of a change from their past designs in general. The past ones leaned very heavily toward keeping nearly all the window area open, with no floor to ceiling stuff. This one looks to be more typical of other Sprinter designs with one wall pretty much covered floor to ceiling.

Not to ring negative here (because I love innovative ideas) but I can see my wife and myself tripping over that platform all the time.Why not reinforce the pan and put wheels on the bottom.
