Inlaws just took delivery of a Nexus 29V on 5/22. Much of the purchase and build experience was as described. It is a good looking unit. One real concern I believe is the delivered weight. With fresh water, fuel, LP,options(HWH)the rear axle was 9,300+ lbs. With an axle limit of 9,600 lbs they are under 300 lbs of CCC. Once they get in the unit they are about maxed out.
That to me is a deal breaker. If a trailer is at CCC with all tanks full (which is fairly unlikely, but can happen), and that is before the bedding, clothes, and other sundries are loaded, then the vehicle is under-engineered, especially with the fact that a lot of people use toads.
I like the Nexus line, but if the stated specs above are right, they do need to consider that a lot of customers will have all tanks (LP/FW/GW/BW) full, the MH loaded with goodies, and likely towing a 2000-3000 pound dinghy.
Maybe there's one out there, but I haven't seen any 30+ foot class C with slides and the E450 chassis that isn't close to the weight limits. These units would be a lot better on a MDT chassis or and F-550. Of course, those chassis are more expensive.

We are not boondockers - I would never consider carrying more than 5 gallons of fresh water and of course the B&G tanks would be very close to empty. Who did the weighing? I would suggest they get each axel weighed as well as each of the four corners by a professionalRv weighing service as I did.
