Nexus Bentley cargo capacity

I learned that the OCCC is 2,800 lbs for the Bentley per an email response from Nexus. Just fyi. I am looking for a little more capacity since we will full time with a toad but it may be OK for some. I love everything else about it though.

Also, you can get a washer and dryer rather than a combo unit if you wish. They only show a combo unit in the video.

One will be at the Hershey, PA RV show in Sept this year in case you are around then.

There is a full review article in the July 2015 issue of FMCA magazine.

The length is exactly the same as my Itasca Suncruiser on a Workhorse W24 chassis-35'10" yet my gasser has 6" more wheelbase. Despite the appearance of being a good deal, I don't think I'd want less wheelbase. JMHO.

I felt the article was very kind to Nexus, as most articles are to the manufacturers. Nexus markets the Bentley as a "luxury" unit, when quite a few of mentioned features are common to almost every unit. I especially chuckled at the 7cu ft. refrigerator as "Standard", along with vinyl flooring and cabinets with "Solid wood doors".

It also bothered us that the only window in the bedroom is the emergency exit at the head of the bed. So much for cross ventilation or a place for the cats to sit and observe the goings on in the campground.

I did a walk through Thursday at the factory. Modest factory. Limited number of floorplans. They are a small place that was pretty great to tour. I liked the extra headroom in the coaches. I thought they would offer hardwood floors. But the coaches are nice and practical. And considerably cheaper than the direct competition. The quality seemed nice too.
This is the only place I have toured. They seem to know what they are doing though.

Did they say how many a month are made?
I wish they had one to look at on this side for the country.

I think it varies upon orders. They pretty much make to order and don't really make inventory. But about one a day was implied.

Spent all day at NeXus looking at the Bentley and like what I saw. High quality in construction and furniture. I priced out a lot of custom items and they would do them all and the price was not unrealistic! They really have put together a fine coach.

I have a Thor Palazzo and the quality in the Bentley is so much better. Having the four slide gives you a lot more living space.
