I couldn't really look close enough to identify what toilet was being used. I would think something more like the Nature's Head, which I think is an option on the Oliver, might be a better option, but maybe it wouldn't suit others. The C-Head is another option.

I know many people just try not to or don't use their camper toilets (even showers) at all, but if we aren't going to use the bathroom, a tent would be a more economical choice.

Paying more than $1.00 to use the toilet each time........
Cathy the HCT will offer both ,an option for a black tank and flush toilet or no black tank with the dry flush option or no toilet at all . Not every one wants to deal with a black tank and not every one wants to deal with no toilet.

Thank you, Mike. Choices are good. Could one get a shower without a toilet option? That would allow for adding a portable/temp toilet in the area of one's choice. The units are just so pretty, and the system for vans I'm betting will be popular since I follow that "community" also, and so many have an issue of "where do I begin" especially when they have no construction skills.

Choices are great! I’m sure some would take the “none” option and install a composting toilet, while others would prefer a conventional porta-potty. Still, the majority opinion in most threads on the subject is a traditional black tank set-up, so good to hear that will be available as well.

Yes shower with gray tank you put in what ever toilet you wish.

We have 3 adults as we travel with an adult son with Down syndrome, so the separation created by the mid-section would be a plus for us.

So few units in the entire industry allow for choices and/or flexibility, so this is looking better and better. The smaller unit had the "cute" factor, but didn't seem practical in our "situation".

Thanks for answering my questions, Mike. We are in market this year to finally make a choice and get moving!

Nice trailer. Love the windows. Wide open on all sides? Why not the Hehr like the HC1? Are these acrylic or glass? Rock guard?

No wood. A big plus.

I have the shelves in my Trillium and I really like them. But the first trip on a back road and HER underwear was on the floor. Netting was my solution.

I have to confess I don't like the modular approach. I understand the versatility but it restricts the interior layout to 20" spacings and adds to the cost. I would l want a permanant queen bed in the rear but everything is a compromise. The bed here looks small?

Torsion Axle? Fifteen inch wheels?

Pricey, but Oliver has proven there's a market if the quality is there.

Thanks Raz for your input.
Yes those are awning style acrylic windows with built in retractable blinds and screens and yes there will be a rock guard available. There will also be netting for the wrap around shelf.
Like the Oliver this is also a full double hull shell with no wood in the construction and does add to the cost but also adds to the value.
The adaptive cube system which is also the same in the HC1 and the Sprinter van conversion allows the customer the ability to change the interior to suit there needs up to a queen in the front an full in the back or anything in between and really does not add to the cost and in fact makes does the opposite as all components can be built off site and cross referenced between all of them. There will also be a Goucho style bunk bed option available.
The HCT will come standard with 15 in wheels and torsion axle

Nice update on the website. I am thrifty, so I'm wondering if the "from" price includes what was shown in the video clip. I did read through the standard features, but that left me sort of confused. My other issue with the video is the lack of someone actually doing a walk-through talking about the unit. Pretty backdrops are nice, but tell me what I am seeing inside/outside the trailer. Just my thoughts.

It is a beautiful product.

Thanks Cathy unlike the HC1 which has a large range of upgrades and add ons which dramatically increase the cost from a basic unit, the HCT will have many more standard features built in to the price . Our standard pricing is still not set as we are still developing features in to the trailer .
As with other HC products there will be many video details coming soon on interior details
