This is a personal preference for sure, but we really like the darker wood. We were a little afraid it would make the interior seem smaller and it has not. To our eyes it’s just warm and cozy.Transit engine power is great.
The two USB power outlets are well positioned. And I like the blue lights – they add just enough illumination to let you get out of bed in the middle of the night and see where you are going. (Spoiler: it’s the bathroom)
The small seat extension on the passenger side bench works great as a dog bed at night. While large dogs won’t fit, one of ours is about 30 lbs and she found it just right. We removed the small back cushion to give it a bit more depth. And she *may* have stolen just a little bit of the main bed area, but not enough to notice.
