Is this correct, a 53.0 gallon fresh water tank with a 4.8 gallon black water tank in a rig with a MSRP of $224,700?

Me thinks the design team made a big error.

The rig has the optional 31 gallon gas tank which is a big plus.

Happy Trails,
Jim

Yea don't think that is a misprint. It is described as a removable cartidge in the video. You are correct in your assumption that this is a big error.

Many Class Bs and very small Class Cs (like this) use a cassette toilet. There's a small tank that's built into the bottom of the toilet and removed from outside the RV. It can be dumped into a bathroom toilet, which can be handy for these small units.

53 gallons of fresh is quite a lot for such a small unit though. It looks like this is made to compete with the Winnebago Ekko. Looks pretty nice.

JMHO... At my age and with our camping style, there are a few things in newer rigs that are a non-starter for us:
Cassette toilet
Propane generator
Tankless water heater
Wet bath
JUST opinions. Oh... and when OTD price creeps up around $150k it better have MANY comforts and amenities!

Yep. I'll add that to my list too. I'm a technology nut, but only for things with backup, failsafe or something I designed, built and implemented myself. IMO, the Firefly and other systems aren't implemented properly. The basic hardware is satisfactory, but the implementation by Thor and others is suspect. It's great... until it breaks.

Many motorhome manufacturers are going back to well designed analog buttons. Not as techy and lacks flash... but they WORK and can easily be fixed/replaced if needed. Not so for a proprietary electronic interface.

Having owned a cassette toilet for a few years now, it does not bother me. A generator for me is a must as the solar / lithium system out there just are not up for the task yet, but maybe soon. I would prefer that it run off of the fuel tank for the RV, but propane is the next option for me. I agree that the electronic "iPad" type controllers are a bit worrisome for me as I have already had one crash on me once requiring a complete replacement.

Any idea how Jayco compares to Winnebago in regards to quality and workmanship?
