We bought this this new in fall 2019 but were not able to take it out for about 8 months due to personal issues and then covid lockdown. Once the campgrounds opened up, we had a fabulous time camping out in Nat'l Forest Service and Park Service sites. Overall it has been a great RV. Some "buggy" problems with the Control Panel and electrical issues. Once a service recall for software was installed it was somewhat better--but still have some issues. Has a nice sound system and TV that we never use, also a nice awning that we've never used.
We sleep with the back doors wide open to get lots of cool night air inside - it is great.
-this unit has a huge bathroom for a Class B! Comfortable for a plus sized person
-Large queen size bed is comfortable
-A/C and heater work well
-The induction stovetop unit is really great and super fast - (but it does eat a lot of power when "dry camping")
-The solar panels are good, but do need full unimpeded access to full sun to charge (e.g. no trees). (When "dry camping" in the forest for several days, even in sunshine, the solar panels don't charge enough. Have to run the vehicle for an hour a day to recharge the unit [no generator])
-Nice amount of inside storage
-large refrigerator (for a class B), and a separate freezer that semi- freezes the ice cream
-Huge 30 gallon fresh water tank - we've never used it all, even when "dry camping"
-The Ford Transit is super easy to drive, very comfortable seats
-nice "mood lights" inside which are great for protecting night vision
-Very little under carriage clearance - only 6 inches! This is because the huge fresh water tank hangs down underneath. makes it essentially unusable on any forest service road with potholes (which is pretty much all of them). Even have trouble accessing some NFS campgrounds with potholes - have to drive <5mph so as not to wipe out the tank.
-The electrical control panel is still "buggy" -it goes out frequently (but is usually fixable with a system reset).
-The lithium battery does not work in temps below freezing - the whole system shuts down-even when plugged in to shore power. At home in the winter it requires a heating pad on the lithium battery in order to keep it powered up so that RV can be kept minimally heated.
-Tiny table 3' x 1' -- we never use it (eat off the kitchen counter instead)
- only the passenger seat swivels, so for meals one of us sits in the passenger seat and one of us sitting on the bed.
