That Airstream Grand Tour EXT is a different animal than the Airstream Interstate that was essentially a clone design of the Roadtrek RS Adventurous. The Grand Tour floor plan is similar in layout to the Great West Van Legend EXT with the kitchen counter on the passenger side and the refrigerator/freezer on the driver side and not under the counter. The microwave/convection oven is under the counter. It looks different in the photos. I wonder if it is more like the bin type you see as the latest fad in kitchen design. It doe not have the third seat up front. It does have a unique personal work area table that functions with a turned around driver's seat. It has a very spacious back storage area that appears big enough to store bikes inside. If you like golfing, Airstream is the only converter that offers a golf bag holder as an option. It is still spacious and open in feel like the RS and unlike the CS tall cabinets on both sides. Here is the plan.

What is missing is Etrek features but it does have a bit more than the old school provisions with two house batteries and 1000w inverter and bigger waste tanks. Yep it has that old propane Suburban furnace (old school). It is not quite as boon docking independent but more so than most Bs of a couple years ago. They have a side sliding door bug screen and I find that essential. You have to like their limited contemporary interior look as there are not a lot of finish options.
As a plan layout I like it better than most Bs but I am moving away from the electric sofa/bed concept I had in my first two Bs to something new and different. I am incorporating that personal work desk with the driver's seat. I think I did that more so because I want to be able to use the two front cab seats with a portable table without having to slide through the passenger seat to get to the driver's seat when set up that way. The work desk pushes the tall cabinets further toward the back by necessity to get the table to work with the driver's seat. Cost, quality and bathroom I can't tell much from the information at hand other than to say I think all the Sprinter bathroom designs on the passenger side (Roadtrek, Airstream, Winnebago) have been too narrow with their compensating Rube Goldberg door configurations with the temporary bump out when in use. Hopefully the Grand Tour design with the bathroom on the driver's side does not make that mistake. Cost starts out pretty high for a MSRP price but then again they just assume all the goodies are standard and don't bother to tease you with a "base" price.
Exterior? They are in line with the trend of de swooping the decals. With a compressor fridge they should be getting rid of the two vent look. Unfortunately, with the Suburban furnace and hot water they will probably have the tell tale cover panel.
