The provision of USB outlets for contemporary devices, the utilization of Frosty glass to preserve privacy while allowing abundant natural light, and the adoption of a pet-friendly layout without cumbersome carpets, offering ample space for furry companions are just some of the amazing features. Nevertheless, a minor drawback is the absence of drawers, but solutions can be devised. Or, if that’s a deal breaker, this RV has drawers!
