Mine has the AC and the 9" GPS/Radio ($900). The 9" is mandatory when you order (?). Passed on the wheels and sound upgrade. The wheels are Methods and are easy to source. $100,765.00 Total including document fees.

I really wanted the Sportmobile but, this vehicle, at this price, I had to go Winnebago.

I will be curious to see how the ~300AH AGM battery bank fares running the induction cooktop regularly. The owners manual may just say to plug in to shore power...

When someone takes delivery, please weigh the van for us. I am very curious if they actually have a usable payload. With 4 passengers, gear, and water, I would bet the van is at least 200lbs over GVWR. With extras like bumpers, gear racks, etc, I could see the van being close to 800lbs over gross. It really depends on what the cabinetry weighs.

With the actual price being only 100k, I can see them selling a reasonable number. Basically this would not be a niche model, but something closer to mainstream.

I'm curious about the stove/battery relationship too. I suppose you could carry a camp stove for backup/outdoor cooking, but that kinda defeats the purpose.

Can somebody elaborate on the battery stove issue? What is the issue?

An 1800W induction stove will give you 55min of cooking draining AGM batteries down to 50% SOC (State Of Charge). To keep reasonable battery life, it is suggested to keep them above 50% SOC. It is OK to drain them below that level but their life will suffer.

Congrats! When is delivery expected? And what type of financing was available (down, rate, and term)?

Maybe I need to do a bit more research, but 1800W continuous seems to be way higher than I would have expected an induction stove to consume. These are suppose to be highly energy efficient appliances relative to a standard electric (resistance) cook top.

That is why I ask for real world performance data.

Indeed, my mistake, it is 1600W not 1800W which is common. Here is review by Fit-RV, I believe the same stove used by Winnebago Revel.
