If you needed to get something fairly quickly, you likely could work out a deal to use one of the used units they have, until yours was finished.
Thanks, I just spent about an hour looking at the custom work from Advanced RV in their gallery. They sure have a lot of innovative ideas and beautiful finishes.
But for my usage, the stock E-trek with some options would really be perfect for us. We have two kids and the e-trek has the option to sleep them up front. Not one of the Advanced RV models had that although one had a bunk bed.
I realize we could design anything we want with Advanced RV, but why bother? The models are perfect from Roadtrek as they are and this will be our secondary RV, not our primary.
We mostly want it to visit the smaller state and national parks and campgrounds. I see us parking the mother ship in a nice big campground and taking the E-trek to the smaller campgrounds overnight or for two nights at at time.
