The front and side looks pretty neat... the rear looks basecamp-ish (aka horse trailer)... kind of weird consider the whole thing is curvy but the rear?

and dual batteries and spare underneath, but with a/c and moon roof, I wonder what the solar will be, maybe just a port for portable units which does not help with towing and 12v refer use.

with a rear opening door the placement of spare tire is limited... I guess the way to see it is, if you never (X) needed to replace a flat yourself, the location of the spare is not important, under carriage is probably a good spot for it.. (a lot of truck/suv these day doe that anyway)..

I liked the rear opening door a lot.. and the front wide window is cool.

A layout with a rear opening door allows for a more efficient layout in a smaller trailer. Where it lacks is almost all campsites are set up with the "activity" areas to the passenger side.

Yes, I usually find that our door is in just the right place for a campsite and the utilities are, also. Once in a while the utilities are in odd places. I do sometimes come in the other direction though and can often still reach the utilities anyway without extensions.

I like the idea of the back door for some things and some people would like them for long items going in while traveling.

most of the campsites we stayed in (no utility sites) have the activity areas behind the car.. I guess that's why I always thought having the rear door was a cool feature.

But, you notice where the awning is? I guess they still expect people to hang out as most of us do. Creating an awning to cover the door is difficult on rear door trailers. The best I've seen was created by DaveInRoseburg for his Compact. But still... I find it nice to unfurl the awning and stay dry without doing a whole lot of work. Or getting wet between the back door and the awning area.
