Leisure Travel Super Slide

Anyone out there purchased or even physically seen the new 2013 Leisure Travel Free Spirit SS (Super Slide)? The ability to stay small yet have a dedicated shower/toilet is interesting to me. I'm thinking of considering this setup rather than size up to a Class C in order to avoid the marine bath in the other Class B's I've seen.
Also, is anyone aware of any other Class B unit with dedicated facilities that I should consider (without going the Class C route)?

We own A Pleasure Way Excel TS . It has a dedicated bathroom / shower . Yes it's small but I think it all works great and its way better than having to use public restrooms. We own a Class A Motorhome too so I know the difference, I don't fret because we are going to take the Class B . The ease of sightseeing, gas mileage, being able to park anywhere offsets being smaller .

I have a 2012 Winnebago Era and love it....It is a class B and has a dedicated bathroom. It is only two of us that travel, so we have plenty of room. It is really easy to drive any where ! Good luck in your search.

Guess I wasn't clear...... by "dedicated" I should have clarified by stating "separate". I don't think I'd like an integrated toilet and shower area, one that is considered a "marine bath".

As a example on our 6 week trip we stopped mainly at State Parks as they were available, nice, cheaper and had bathrooms with showers. We had mesh bags and flip flops and usually took showers that way . It turned out that everywhere we stopped at was really clean , hot water etc. We always parked near the showers so it was only a very short walk. The other times we Camped that didn't have showers and we used the coach and they do well for how much room you have. All you've been doing is traveling/driving you can't be that dirty ! You're not going to find a Class B with separate bath and shower I highly doubt .

This new Leisure Van has separate (dry) facilities. It may be the only one..

Really nice, but why is small and cute so much more expensive than larger and not so nice?

Thats a nice floorplan and I didn't know they made one. The marine type bath/shower isnt that bad I don't think, but everyone has their own things to deal with and that I understand.

The one thing that doesn't look too comfortable in this unit is the bed. I guess there's always a tradeoff no matter what I decide on.

I did drive a long ways just to look at this unit. It looked nice, but it was a little tight in the shower and hard to move around. I think it maybe nicer for me to have a little more space and a place to set instead of stand. Just what I have been debating. I have been looking around and I have not found any others with a separate shower and toilet, but sure I have not found all manufactures.

we check around and so far we like the Roadtrek 210. you can take a shower in the middle of the van. The shower curtain go around into the middle of the van and there is a drain in the floor for the water. So there is plenty of room for a nice shower.

While there is a lot of storage and a dry bath, the love seat which Murphy's to a bed is a bit cramped for two. Would be a great unit for solo.
