Default Anybody making a Revel style Class B on the 170 wheel base?

I'm pretty sure nobody makes one currently but are there any rumors of any manufacturers making an outdoor focused, class b, in the style of the Revel, but with a 170, or long wheelbase option?

Closest thing currently would probably be the Canadian Safari Condo XL Flex 22 on the Sprinter 4x4 170 chassis. It has the elevating rear bed (lengthwise) with slide-out gear garage underneath and similar dual passenger seat/dining behind the driver compartment. XL Flex does not however have full 4 season plumbing or the cassette toilet of the Revel.
At the other end of the amenities spectrum would be the VanDoIt Liv on the Transit AWD chassis. It's a modular design also with rear lift bed, but the galley, shower, etc are portable units that can be set up or removed within the unit as needed.
A desired Revel 170 (70E) has been discussed on the Revel groups for some time, but so far has not become reality. It does seem like a good idea.

Default Might be antithetical

There might be a perception that a longer wheelbase has a greater chance of getting hung up more easily in the type of terrain the Revel demographic is looking to traverse. The short wheelbase is probably more nimble in a rutted track for instance. Again that might all be just the perception, because they're all pretty heavy vehicles.

Default Revel 170

Take a look at Storyteller Vans, and a number of upfitters will build you a custom 4x4 170, Advanced RV, Zenvanz, Sportsmobile. There are great upfitters North America wide, some that build set floor plans, some semi-custom and some complete custom.
