We started our search in Oct for a used, low-mileage 130"WB MR to convert and use as a Travel van
but found few available and poor price discount.
After test driving a 2017 which was a rusted mess underneath (don't get me started)
we decided to buy new and had missed the 2020 MY.
At the time there were few photos of the Carbonized Gray color
so here are three shots at slightly different lighting angles.
We think it looks great.
With the all-windows option, visibility is outstanding.

Also attaching a photo of the E-brake-less driver seat pedestal
which makes for a cleaner pass through between the seats
and will make the swivel seat install easier.

So nice to be able to finally have it here -- instead of searching the forums
for images or measurements I can pull out a tape measure and get to work . :)

I appreciate the discussions and attitude of this forum;
if I can take a photo or measure something until yours arrives,
please let me know.

Slightly convex, here's a photo at floor level looking forward.
Thick plastic, little flex, grounding plate and bolt directly below it.

I have the single battery option, so only CCP1 (12.6v engine off, 14.8v engine on),
and the default alternator seems to be the 250A :)

It is a nice color. I will be interested to see how the color deals with dust.

On dark colors and the sort of western light brown / grey dust we have, dust tends to show quickly vs silver gray colors tend to hide the dust better.

I tend to not wash vehicles as often as I should, so it is a consideration for me.

Usually CCP1 is on all of the time, engine on or off, so it will be interesting to see if that is also true on your van.

Yep: 12.6v when engine off and 14.8v when engine (alternator) idling.
Which is fine for my single Victron Orion 30A B2B needs.
What would you suggest if I wanted to connect a second Victron 30A charger?
thanks.

LOL - I missed that - guess I am tired.

There is a ton of info in this section on using the capability of the CCPs to help charge auxiliary / house battery packs.
