Two things that are non starters for me:  1- all electric, makes it difficult to run your fridge; we found out how inconvenient the ice maker was when dry camping. 2- two slides; we won't give up the cross ventilation in the bedroom.

Inaddition to not being on an 8 outboard air bag chassis, the 400D heater is the baby Aqua Hot with 2 zone pumps, not three, and NO engine preheat.  Must be only block heater.

Baby heater will heat water or interior, not both at same time.  Hot...

"iC" originated from an in-house "naming contest" of sorts, and no one seems to know the meaning yet.

It's an iCoach at 37'!

Next up, an iCoach Mini at 30'...

I have not found a need to have a second slide out in the living room and the extra headaches (especially with galley on a slide out) would not...

Wanna bet the ic is "internet coach?"

Any aqua hot is great.

All the older coaches had two zone heating did they not?

All the older Foretravels with Aqua Hot have the large heater (16 gallon coolant tank) with three heating loop pumps, engine preheat pump and four heating zones, living room, bathroom, bedroom and basement.  Plus the heater can heat the engine,...

Most owners are not winter users.  The additional,parts and labor costs for four zones may be substantial.  A front double slide could allow the galley to go back on the street side like all the pre slide coaches.  Early slides flopped the...

These posts remind me that a mfg has to make something that will actually sell, not just be liked by a few and also that all mods have to pass marketing and engineering.  I understand the strong demand for an all electric motor home.  I believe...

It seems to me that these are going to be like most FT have always been, somewhat customizable per order.  You might be able to order a gas cooktop.  Maybe a bigger AH.  Maybe only one slide. Why don't we just wait and see.  I hope we are all...

Reading about bedroom slides:

Just a note. We have a bedroom slide, yet still have the north south bed with full access to top of the Cummins, and cross flow ventilation (windows on both sides).  A desk with drawers is in the bedroom slide.

Dan, your BR desk is probably pretty rare, most of these have a closet and no window.  I like the desk idea with a window.   One thing you do not have is the side overhead cabinets in the bedroom and less room on the driver's side between the bed...

Every floor plan variation has benefits and drawbacks based on whose looking.  We are lucky to have lots of variations that will likely fit everyone's needs.  So much of this...
