Default Rear Kitchen/Rear Bathroom - what models have them?

I have been shopping for a Class B. None of the dealers here have them. One awesome sales person almost got me into a Class C because of the floorplan. I fell in love with the rear kitchen/rear bathroom layout.

I want to use my Class B as my primary vehicle. That makes purchasing a Class B versus a Class C very important to me. Seeing that floorplan got me looking for it in a Class B.

I discovered two older models with that kind of floorplan: Airstream Interstate and American Cruiser.

Truthfully, I love the American Cruiser floorplan BUT since I am having a hard time finding one, I would like to know: What other Class B's feature a rear kitchen/bath. Can anyone tell me?

Also: If I want to use my RV as my primary vehicle, do I need to go with a Class B?

I am not in the position to buy NEW so I am looking at models from 2000-2005

I wouldn't want anything bigger than a B for a daily use vehicle.
How do you plan on using an RV? If it just for weekend camping or touring maybe something even smaller would work. Like the or

If you need more space then a full Class B would work. If is is not a diesel then expect 15 mpg + or -. I think for daily use shorter is better for maneuvering. Probably even more important is the width. I had a 21' B+ that had a rear full bathroom and full kitchen. I was a full 8' wide though. It would really fill a parking spot. Too wide for a daily drive I think.

Islander (also out of business) made something you'd probably like:
I just love that one.

Our first B was a Gulfstream Vista cruiser with the rear kitchen and bath. In our experience, the layout was not optimal. When you had the beds down you could not easily pass between the cab and the kitchen/bath. Just our experience and opinion. We traded that for a Roadtrek with the mid kitchen/bath and rear bed. Much happier with that setup.
