So we were the lucky ones to collect the Abyss Gray 350 Hi Roof ELWB AWD - 3.5 Eco, RV Package from Kansas last week (CVM through Halvorson).
Had a great time driving it back to Richmond, VA, taking 4 days (5 nights) staying 2 nights in hotel/BnB and actually sleeping in the bare van itself for 3 nights - we had arranged for a "Bedrug" to be delivered to the dealer so at least we weren't sleeping on the bare floor.
The "new" SYNC4 package is a lot of fun and will make things easier for us as we travel the country - especially down those State Park fire roads to remote campgrounds.
Maxxair fan and 3M Thinsulate due to arrive imminently, Van Compass lift kit and Aluminess Roofrack, ladders and front bumper under consideration....

Here she is at our first stop in Boonville MO

Outside a couple of well known distilleries...

And a quick view of the 360 camera in use... Going to be really helpful in making sure you are fully parallel to the kerb when parking !

I love the color - we were thinking of getting a grey but concerned how it would perform in the heat, how well does it do in the heat?

So far we have no problems with the heat - we're in Richmond VA and have camped in 100'F no problem - albeit with Thinsulate insulation and 2 Maxxair fans, one pulling air in (over the bed) and the other pulling air out.
We seem to do as well as our friends who have a white van !

Currently we are struggling to get things done due to being too busy going camping in it - that and some items (Air Head composting toilet and Vitrifrigo Slim 150 fridge) being on extended delivery times.

Absolutely loving it though.
