Looks like a nice sized shower



Looks like a Thetford cassette toilet to me. Interesting. You could dump that at home.
The other photos look good too. Nice sized counter top for meal prep. Good size fridge.

The race for big bathrooms continues! I have complained about lack of counterspace on many of the new/updated models, but that one is huge. Maybe even to the point of too much, as it takes from potential cabinet space. By the time you take the big bathroom, big counter, big frig there doesn't seem to be a lot of space left for stuff. It does look like it would be a very good tailgater, soccer tournament, weekender though, with lots of prep and bathroom space.

It reminds me a lot of an Winnebago ERA 70X, except that they chose the upper tier headlight package with the HID option.

The decision to go with a cassette toilet may not be a good one, unless they are aiming for the boondocker or younger crowd market. It can be a heavy, messy job to lug/wheel it to the bath-house, lift it onto a toilet, pour it down, lug it to a sink, fill it up to rinse, back to the toilet to drain again, then to the sink to add some water and the chemicals, before carrying back to the motorhome.

For someone who boondocks and might at best have a pit/vault toilet available, this might be an ideal setup. However, for people going to CG to CG, it can be a lot of hassle compared to just attaching a dump hose, pulling two valves, and pressing the macerator pump button.

That must be Canadian dollars?

Not as crazy as some, it will be interesting to see how they sell. I assume Canada only at this point?

Not bad but the cassette toilet isnt great. I can buy a 2014 Thor Chateau Citation 24SR with 2 slideouts for $109,000 Canadian discounted. They have two. Bigger but a lot more for your money and, it is a Sprinter MB chassis too. So I dont see the deal here.
