Do you think the end product for the cab over version will look similar to the Forester 2401W? How do you believe the cab over it will impact CCC?

Not a lot of info posted on actual CCC, but my working assumption is around 1,000 lbs if I go with the aluminum rims and assume the lightweight shower door which I understand will be standard by the time the cab over model comes out?

Yes, pretty similar in look.

The weight should be close to a wash. While there is more weight in the bunk, windows, etc. We save some weight in the fiberglass parts and front cabinetry. We'll continue to make small changes to reduce the overall weight any chance we get.

I have a question about the atwood and the truma units.

I found an Isata 3 with the Dark interior my wife likes but it has the Atwood on demand water heater.... Just for discussion purposes.. If I decided to switch out the Atwood for a Truma units. What all. Besides paint. would I be looking at?

Is the outside hole the same size?
does it need braced inside any differently?
Are there and wiring differences for the controller?
About how much time can I expect it to take for a one time job?

Have a great paint shop here in town so that shouldn't be a problem if I can get paint codes from dynamax.

Again... I am just asking in a "Just in Case" situation. If the Atwood works fine I don't intend to change it. If it doesn't then I gotta put my big boy pants on and fix it myself as I know know there may or may not be a problem with the Atwood.

Also. Can the flow sensor be calibrated on the atwood to turn on at a lower flow rate? How hard is this to do?

Thanks in advance

The Truma is designed to fit in that same hole. The door needs to be installed perfectly though or you will see a paint edge.

What might be a better option, is we can provide a black paint Truma door. Then, no need to take it to a paint shop...and it would match the black door trim, black windows. We have done that before.

The biggest issue is getting the flow right, which can be done. I do know others have adjust the flow sensor, but that would void the warranty I'm guessing.

I understand about warranties.. I bought a 2014 Nissan GT-R 2 years ago. With 1800 miles on it I did a BUNCH of performance modifications that voided the warranty... Doing the same thing as we speak to a 2016 Corvette Z06 with 1100 miles on it. Like I said before. We need to take responsibility for our own actions and "Wear our big boy pants"

Thanks a bunch for your time. Its very much appreciated. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on this one

One "large" TX dealer just started showing new Isata 3 units on order with Cabernet exterior and T4 In-Motion Satellite?

Can you tell us more about the satellite option and post a picture of the Cabernet exterior?

Still waiting for the cab over option to pull the trigger, but it just keeps getting better and better.

It's the Winegard Road Trip in-motion Satellite.

As for cabernet...we haven't painted a 3 Series in cabernet yet. The dealer liked the cabernet on the 5 series (shown) and asked for that color in the 3 series...so we obliged.

Do you happen to know the overall dimensions of the two recliners with the table in the middle?

We are going to replace the sofa in our Isata 5 with a pair of recliners and they look great.

If they would fit in my opening i'd look to buy those to replace my sofa.
