It would have been cool if someone converted an AWD chassis. That I could see paying for.
How many sensors, fuses or computers does a Bw4472 need? Zero.

I have seen a few of those Allegro motorhomes. They are big! They somehow stretched the Astro wheelbase and run the original rear axle under it; it just seems like to much weight over that axle and tire size. I've read on some RV forums about Astro Allegros having handling problems as well as overheating issues.
In comparison, the 1980s Toyota truck motorhomes had a beefed up drivetrain with a dually rear axle.

Saw this one in Bellingham, WA.

My astro overheats on a hot day with the front and rear AC going. I suspect those motorhomes are good flatland devices.
