Well laid-out floor plans

Lots of internal and external storage
Good capacity for fuel, water, etc.
We liked the option for an overhead bunk
Weird swivel bathroom sink
We think this is a solid option for a high-end class B+/C motorhome. The quality and feel of the interior is better than most, plus it feels fairly spacious. Granted, the bedroom is tight with a minimal walk space around the bed, but a separate bedroom in a 25 footer is a nice feature. Plus, there are many great advantages to this particular layout, including more external storage. You can also access that storage from inside by lifting up the bed. Lastly, the overhead bunk option gives you flexibility for increased storage or more sleeping capacity. It always seems that cabinets or entertainment consoles in lieu of an overhead bunk rob you of a lot more space.
Honestly, there isn’t much we don’t like, but the main thing that stuck out was the weird swivel sink. It would require you to swivel it out of the way to use the toilet, then slide it the other way when you take a shower. Not a deal breaker, but a little awkward. You can get a more traditional vanity / sink in the other floorplans, if you are ok with the other beds and configurations they offer.
The price is on the high end compared to other options, but the finishes are also considerably upgraded.
