Did you get the one with the workstation interior (dinette table)?

Haha, I wish! I got the basic working man's machine. It's nice, and it drives really nice, but it's somewhat bare-bones. I'll get some interior pictures in a day or two and post them for those who are curious.

It does have a refrigerator and an 1,800 watt factory installed inverter for electrical power. Those are two amenities my former Volvo did not have.

Okay, here's a few interior photos...

This cabinet is actually the refrigerator.

The drawer above it is a small tabletop that slides out. It's a place you can eat or finish up some paperwork. The area above the sliding table has some drink holders and can be used as a place to set a bag or whatever else you need to find a place for.

This cabinet is directly across from the refrigerator and it serves as a closet for your hanging clothes.

Above it is another cubby hole with a "swing away" T.V. mount in it.

Here's the sleeper area...

It has climate controls, lighting switches, and radio controls readily available.

The drivers seat is very comfortable...

You can see the instrument panel with ease while in the driver's seat.

There's also some storage up above the dash area.

How many cigarette lighters are up front?

My 2016 IH only has 2 and I need 4! GPS, my cameras, XM radio, and plug-in cooler.

PackRat, you are, no doubt, aware of multiple 12-volt adapters. I had one which was a quad with an on/off switch. I think it ultimately died...

Three cigarette lighter style power outlets and two USB style outlets. A total of five power outlets up in the front (driver area). That should be enough for your average PackRat! smile.gif
