As promised, "a tour". Brand new custom rig, finished by SpaceCraft in April.
At 29,000 and a 7,000 lb pin weight an ET hitch, of course.

Entry steps retract into the cellar.

Hardwood floor throughout the rig, acacia wood.

Entryway into the main area of the dining room/living room,

and kitchen.

Domestic Summit refrigerator.

Next to it cabinets,

housing a drop down TV and Engle freezer.

For cooking, microwave,

and Fisher Paykle gas convection stove oven.

Towards the rear, library (children are home schooled) and entrance to the "rear quarters" for the children.


.........this is just the start, the "tour" will continue later.

Jerry, absolutely, I know I had "palpitations" first time I "toured" the rig, I don't want someone on the forum with a bad ticker to keel over, so here comes another batch.
The rear area is actually four sections. The first thing you see is the cabinet,

which houses a washer and a dryer.

The parents are fultiming and traveling the US with four children, therefore there are four sleeping quarters, two on the left,

and two on the right.

Those of you guys who spent time in the navy or on board a sub, know this is pure luxury.
Behind the washer and the dryer is the rear bathroom accessible from both sides.




................Since we toured the stern of this "vessel", when we "resume" the "tour" we'll move towards the bow.

Jerry, we can't stress your heart because of my negligence, so here it comes.

Continuing with the kitchen. Lot's of Corian around including a molded and unitized underhung sink.

Unique thing about this installation is that the sink bowl is translucent, with the spot lights over the sink there is illumination under the counter below.
Moving forward, next to the steps to the master bedroom is the pantry.

Shelves are adjustable and take a gender an the size and depths of the shelves.

Those are big suckers. There is another storage cabinet below the pantry.

What is "special" about it is the bottom, transparent. This helps to observe how all the stuff associated with the kitchen (hot and cold water, grey water drain, AC and DC power, etc.' etc.,) is doing with the kitchen slide going in and out. How many other RV manufacturers give a hoot about it, "if it breaks we'll dig it out".
To the right of the forward stairs is the entry clothes closet and above is the "information center".

More on that when we have the "technical tour".
There is a center isle entry into the master bedroom area.

On one side of the isle is the front bathroom,



and on the other side is the shower.

The shower door has a double swing, it can close off the shower, or when swung in the other direction,

it will close off and make private the entire bedroom, bathroom and shower area.
Moving on the the bedroom.

Dig that headboard.



Full closet on one side and a dresser on the other side.

Which holds one more "surprise" (for the lady of the house and the children).


On another note, SpaceCraft is one of only two companies that I know that will let you arrive with an idea (either on paper or in your head) of what you want and deliver it. Many of the "high end" companies claim that they can "customize" their rigs to your liking. Baloney, they might change few things here and there, but it better be within their model general layout or spec. SpaceCraft will move their slides, install as many as want (five in this example), install custom appliances, running and braking gear, power plants, solar, basement air conditioners, air brakes, etc., etc.
The owner of this unit is a fine engineer and he had other rigs before, he knew what was lacking on the others and what he wanted and Marsha Trautman and her son Wyatt delivered.

We'll give the "techies" another "tour", there is some fascinating things on this rig in that regard.

Great photos Henry

I have been able to actually see it in person before they arrived out East. Hope all is going well with the needed projects. Thanks for the photos.
