Factory installed inverter. Why not available?

Hello all,

Been RVing for 15 yrs now and am seriously thinking of dropping back from my 40ft deisel pusher to a Toy Hauler. (ATV and Harley's want to go sometimes too) As my current rig is only 3 1/2 yrs old I figure I can come close to trade out by the time I sale or trade my coach for a new Dually P/U and and 38 - 40ft TH.

My big hang up is that we attend 6 to 8 NASCAR races a year and dry camp 80% of the time. We really enjoy the ability to run most devices in the coach without having to always run the Genset all the time.

In my early shopping of TH's I have found none that offer an inverter set up with at least 4 six volt batteries.

Has anyone found a muanfactor that would do this installation at the factory. Also, I have started looking at Escalade do to the fact that the interior looks a little more like the interior of a motorhome - at least those that I have seen so far. I would really appreciate any comments on other makes that might be considered mid to upper end rigs.

Thanks for any comments.

Added Weight and Cost are the primary issues and also the addition of a generator to recharge or a larger solar setup.These items decrees the total load carrying capacity.
There is always some tradeoffs.

Simply tell the dealer "No inverter, No two pair of GC2's, NO DEAL!" and see if they can get the factory to do it.

or better yet.. Just get your own inverter and put it in.. It's not that hard if you know how to do it.
