The 2015 Venture Sonic has a Norco BAL Huck bolted frame. Both the walls and roof are made of what Venture calls Champagne-infused fiberglass. Laminated sidewalls have aluminum framing and safety glass windows are tinted. A diamond rock and a gutter with a downspout help protect the Sonic from the elements. To make camping as clean and easy as possible, an exterior shower comes standard, while the bumper comes with sewer hose storage. Other features include marine-style detachable power cord, satellite and bable hookup, porch light, exterior LED lighting, and lighted double safety step. Step up the Highway Package and you get black tank flush, spare tire with carrier and cover, and LP bottle tank cover. If you plan on hosting outdoor barbeques, you’ll be thankful for the two marine-grade exterior speakers.

If you need to relax after a day of hiking and swimming, wind down in the kitchen, which also poses as a mini living room. It has an entertainment center that offers DVD/CD/stereo/MP3/Bluetooth. While the kids watch their favourite movie, you can prepare a quick meal in the kitchen, which comes with the essentials: pantry, fridge, sink, two-burner cooktop, and drawers that have roller ball bearing guides. Cognac Maple cabinetry warms the space, while giving it a traditional cottage feel. When dinner’s ready, serve it at the dinette, which has flipside cushions. Carefree linoleum in the kitchen is easy to maintain and comes with a three-year warranty.

After a day in the wild outdoors, you’ll definitely need a place to groom and freshen up. Though the Venture Sonic’s bathroom is small in size, its deco will make you feel at home. A residential radius shower comes with glass doors. The toilet comes with foot flush and the space has a power vent, which all members of your family will be thankful for. Store your essentials in the medicine cabinet, which boasts a mirror and storage for your toothbrushes and toiletries.

When you’re finally ready to call it a day, retreat to the master bedroom. Get comfortable on your innerspring mattress that has a quilted reversible comforter and a designer padded headboard. Overhead storage and under-bed storage offer ample space for storing clothes and gadgets. Shirt closets will keep your clothes clean and wrinkle-free. The bedroom is also decorated with pleated nightshades and valances. At night, you can turn on the LED lights to keep the space bright.

While you sleep in the master bedroom, the kids or guests can take a nap on their own beds. The Venture Sonic’s guest room has a double bunk, bench seat and a 38” dinette that could be turned into a bed. When the kids aren’t sleeping, they can play games in this space and use the mini dinette to play games and eat meals.
