Default Small European "A"?

I can't find the link for it, but a while back, I came across a class "A" rig that was built on a Ducato frame. It was similar to a Winnebago Via, but around 20 feet long. Because it was built on a stripped ladder chassis, it could have basement storage, and the bed (if I recall right) was intended for people to sleep widthwise.) With a creative use of tambour doors (like what the Travato uses for the bathroom), the rig had a decent aisle shower without taking away from other uses of the space. Even the steps going to the bed had storage in them.

Wonder if anyone has seen this. I can't find the model of this for the life of me. Its main advantage was the fact that the body was either fiberglass or carbon fiber, and was completely engineered by the RV upfitter, and put together using various epoxy compounds to save weight on metal fasteners.

Only reason why I bring this up is that I wish someone would make something like this on US soil.

Yes. The European ducato van up-fitters have fully optimized motor home conversions. Look at the websites for Globecar, aria, pilote, challenger, knauss, chausson and a host of other to see how creative and advanced their technology is. Very impressive.

Maybe it's the Adria Sonic Supreme 710SL? Raised bed, storage under the stairs, bathroom extends into the hallway.... dunno if the shell is carbon fiber though.
