Why no Grand Touring Series for shorter floor plans?

Question for B Clemens.
Why no offering of the streamlined, Grand Touring Series (GTS) for the shorter, simpler floor plans?

We are 2 adults and a dog, with no need or desire for the over cab bed and it's resulting propensity for leaks, and degradation to aerodynamics.

Seems that in the Class C world these days, there are very few offerings anymore without the overcab box.

We would love to see the Forester 2301 offered as a GTS.

Working on shorter GTS floor plan now. 24-25' single slide. And no I am not at liberty to show a floor plan quite yet.

PS. double sinks are nice, but counter space in a small unit is a priority. Double sink doesn't always fit so nicely either.

Brian, that is fantastic news! Any preliminary idea on when it would "go live?"

Thanks!

Nope. Chevy's fuel tank is in the way for us to do heated/enclosed tanks. So at this time we won't spend any engineering time to figure that out. In addition it would require all new cap work. (Fiberglass cap). Plus with them slowing down their production so they can build more Colorado's...well, I have little faith in them going forward.

You mean, as a viable chassis for the existing Forester/Sunseeker??

How about a residential sized (60x80) queen bed?
