X2 Rich. I suspect the differentiation between the Charleston and Berkshire will be the all-electric with hydronic heating in the Charleston and a standard propane furnace in the Berk.
I HOPE FR equips future versions of both lines with a VIP Smart Wheel - making that a distinguishing factor between the two lines would be a dumb business move IMHO.
I do hope that the Berk will at offer an option to extend the heated tile floor into the bedroom (as does the Ventana). It was VERY toasty in the living room in the XLT in 45-50° weather with the floors and fireplace on when we were at the plant in November. If they extend the tile, I'll bet that will provide more than enough electric warmth to the rig in mild weather.
Hint to FR: a remote control for the furnace/floors in the bedroom would be VERY nice (and keep me from having to get out of a warm bed to turn them on in the morning
