We are so excited to get our Isata 5. Joe has been sending us some great photos of it being built in factory. That Cummings diesel is going to have us passing all the RVs with ease on the Cajun Pass.

Excited for you. The 5 series is packed with features. Frankly we priced it to get to market, but we kept adding bells and whistles after the fact.

We had been searching around for a diesel Class C for awhile and when we saw the Isata 5 at the Pomona show, we knew we had to have it. There is nothing out there that even comes close. What new bells and whistles can we expect? Anything new since the Pomona RV show?

No new features since the show. This all happened before. For the production run we just sourced lighter weight components to maximize cargo capacity. I'm glad Joe has been keeping you updated. One of the goals of the Facebook page was to post pictures of the construction process for all retail orders. Still a work in progress.

I was thinking there was not much more you can add to this RV. Like I said before there is no other Class C Diesel that even comes close to the Isata 5. Can't wait to show it off when we take possession of ours.

Congratulations. That is a very nice rig. I'm not sure if the Isata 5 comes with these options but we have an electric fireplace, central vacuum system, gas/electric cook top, 2 electric base board heaters and cold weather package. The nice thing about the electric options is when we use an RV park with hook ups we can use the electric heat source including the fireplace and stove to save the propane. I know all of those items cost a bit more money but i am happy to have them. I am surprised at how much we use the central vac. I looked at the install. If was very simple to install and can be retro-fitted easy.

I seriously hope you bring an Isata 5 to the Goshen Rally this August bclemens. The nearest dealer that carries that line is hundreds of miles from me. I liked the Isata 3 series too but the 26 gallon fuel tank was a deal breaker for me.

We'll see what we can do. We're also signing more dealers, so you should start to see them at shows.

Would love to see one of the 35DBs get in to the Pacific NW area - we had mostly ruled out Class C, as the Ford cab just doesn't have enough leg room for me (tall guy problems) - I'm also *much* more a Dodge guy than a Ford guy, so yay! Just learned about the Isata 5 last night in the FMC Magazine review, and there's hope again!

Any update on pictures of the 35DB? Any slated to be shipped to a dealer somewhere in the PacNW?

One other question, more out of curiosity - why go shorter on the length with the bunk option?

Thanks for keeping our options open!
