What does everyone think about this new layout? We're not getting it, it's just that this is different so I'm curious what everyone thinks of it.

Doesn't get more open concept than that.

Not something we would consider as we like to be able to get to everything on the road with slide closed; can't access the fridge in that one.

Saw the video already. I think it's an interesting setup.

Not sure I want it, but I found it interesting.

The porch and sliding door is a novel idea, just good luck lowering the porch on just about all campsites. Too wide.

That porch is ridiculous ! The bathroom is way to small.
I would much prefer a table and four chairs to that dinette.
And visualize pulling that trailer down the road with those sliding glass doors and go over a few bumps.
We have a similar trailer only it has two queen bedrooms, (one at each end) and ours has sliding glass doors. I had it towed into our permanent snow bird site, from the dealers, (a mile away)and will never tow it.
It has sliding glass doors and I built a wooden deck and steps. There is no doubt in my mind that those doors and their flimsy frames would be trouble after the first tow. With that said we love them for sitting and looking out at the coconut palms.

I like to keep my camping simple. No slides, seldom use a generator, and definitely no patio. I want to sit by the fire and have a nice cold adult beverage. I can sit on my patio at home and look out at some of the most beautiful scenery in the country and will not be taking my patio with me.

I like it. I see a lot of toy haulers using the rear gate as a patio.

In the campgrounds we frequent (state parks), we would have no problem deploying the patio.

My little pooch would LOVE being outside on the patio!

And, the natural light in the living area is awesome.

I dig it.

Put the awning out, and it is the same as sitting "out under the awning", except cleaner and no steps.

Some of the comments with that video talk about getting stabilizers under that patio to reduce rocking of the trailer, think about how much weight leverage is there.

Definitely something I would consider if I was in a buying mood.
