Other than looks, it was more spacious and probably cheaper to build.
I'd argue that with today's manufacturing methods (laser cutting, and CNC machines for example) the Axis/Vegas front ends probably don't add that much to the overall cost of the coach.

Id like to see how they vacuum form the walls if not straight, or how they bend them if initially straight.

From what I've seen when I was at the company service center it looks like the inside walls are just glued to the outer shell. At the "bend" there is a seam on the inside covering the join between the two walls (and thus they aren't bent, just two pieces next to each other). The mechanism for the drop down bed also covers up much of the "bend" area as well.

The inside walls in the cap area are the same wood Styrofoam sandwich that all the other walls are in the RV.

Upgrade the present Axis/Vegas models!

Required improvements:
1) add the return to center suspension shock
2) Add a spare tire holder
3) Quiet down the cab area by improving sound deadening

Everyone on this site has done or wishes to do these modifications...Just make them standard or even options. The original concept is great! Just improve the shortcomings a little bit for very little add'l cost!

Sorry to see them discontinued, we've had an Axis 24.1 and changed up to a Vegas 25.2 and we're very happy with it, 26ft long or 30ft long with the rear slide extended, and more storage the Euroboxes, what's not to like. Because were in Europe the size is perfect 👍👍
