I think there is another article on this under a separate topic heading. The floorplan they have is nice and can seat six... but there is very little storage space, so it limits the usability of the rig for all but day trips or maybe an overnight stay. If they changed out some chars for armoires or cabinets, it would help things immensely.

If they wanted to be unique, they could do like some European "B" makers and have a custom tent that attaches to it for added space in lieu of a slide-out. Done right, the tent could sleep four others while two sleep inside the rig... Of course, there is the issue of storage (or lack of), but there is always replacing seats with armoires and dressers.
