RE: Sprinter 2500

We are looking for a Mercedes Sprinter Class B on a 2006 Mercedes short wheel base 2500. I know that Roadtrek made one, the SS Agile. Any one know if other builders made a Class B on the Sprinter 2500 chassis? I have a 2006(2007 build) Pleasure-way Plateau TS on the 2500 chassis that is, without dualies at the rear and around 21ft in length. Later models were built on 3500 chassis with dualies at around 22ft9ins. I have seen a few 2006/2007 PWs on the web. AL Hmmm. My 2006 PW Plateau TS on the 2500 chassis without dualies is 22' 9".

RE: Class B - B+

RIVA does not recognize a B+ as a Type of RV. It is a made up manufactures term for a small Class C. A Class B started out as a van, after that it doesn't matter what is done to it. A "Type" of RV is based on what the original chassis is, not what the body was altered to look like. This is RIVA's definition of a Type/ Class B. "Commonly called van campers, Type B Motorhomes are built using automotive manufactured van or panel-truck shells" This is the definition for a Class C. "Type C Motorhomes are built on an automotive van frame with a wider body section attached to the original cab section." Also called a cut-away chassis. Some manufactures call their 35' 3 slide Type/Class C a B+. So you see size is irrelevant to these manufactures, they consider anything without a cab over sleeper a B+. Now I know some of you don't want to accept RIVA's (who sets the standards for the RV industry) definitions, and that's fine as it always seems to get people talking which is what a forum is for. Ref. RIVA's consumer site The B Forum needs to have this statement cemented to the top of the forum. It would save a ton of bandwidth given this conversation / debate recurs every couple of weeks and is beyond tiresome.

RE: Proper gear

Based on another post of hers, it looks like she has a 2010 Pleasureway on a Chevy chassis.

RE: Quartzsite snowbirds not here..Update They have arrived.

I intend to arrive on Thursday for an annual Quartzsite rally hosted by a chapter of one of national organizations of which I am a member. Although I'm retired now (Yay me!) I won't be staying beyond the weekend. The rally is the only reason I go to Quartzsite. Through these boards I've learned that Yuma is the new Quartzsite in terms of Big Tent and vendors. Not sure the reason(s).

RE: solar from two sources

(Also DW reminds me from time to time as required, that being a woman is not necessarily a sign of helplessness, unless she is "playing that card" ! :) ) Not knowing something, not having experience with something, and or being fearful of something, has nothing to do with gender.

RE: holding tank emptyied shows as 2/3 full

Karen, My tank level sensors are accurate the majority of the time. The black tank sensor misreads on occasion and when it does I use this to clean the tank sensors of any gunk that may have accumulated.

RE: What makes RV'ing special to you?

Traveling efficiently while self-contained, whether exploring an urban area or camping in rural areas. I'm not tethered to my sticks and bricks, my mobile home is tethered to me and my geographic whims. Can't beat it!

RE: your favorite style of rv and why

I don't think anyone has mentioned a class B van camper. I would buy one again in a heartbeat, and we're going into our fifth year of enjoyment. We travel two+ months at a time, several trips a year - we've gone across the US and up into Canada. We are snowbirds on the move in the winter, mostly in the Florida Keys where we stay a week or two in each place for a month or two total. As others say, there are tradeoffs for all RVs, but here's why I love the B: Both of us can drive it, park it, and it serves as a second vehicle at home, parked in our driveway. (It is used all year, and not sitting there depreciating.) We enjoy the usual motorhome advantages of vehicle+living quarters with enclosed bathroom, holding tanks, a galley, and beds. (Ours has fixed twin beds convertible to king.) But we don't need a second towed vehicle. We like the car-like handling and parking. We can fit in just about any camp site. Setup and departure is fast and usually involves only plugging/unplugging electric. The diesel fuel mileage for our generation/model of Sprinter is 25 mpg, though newer models get somewhat lower mpg. Finally, the re-sale value appears to be strong. X2

RE: Camping? When did you start.

60 years ago as a 7 year old "inner city" girl when my mother sent me to summer camp for two weeks in the Catskills. I returned every summer as a camper, until I was a senior camper, Counselor in Training, and Counselor for three years, and then I was there for two full summer months each year. Still in touch with many of the girls I attended camp with as a camper; and many of the boys from our brother camps. We are truly sisters and brother from different mothers.

RE: Water heater anode rod change frequency

The magnesium anode is recommended by Suburban, unless it lasts less than a year, then they recommend the switch from OEM magnesium to the zinc/aluminum rod.

RE: Food at Potlucks- Am I the only one?

The only potlucks inn which I refuse to participate are the ones at work. I've learned way too much about the personal hygiene habits of some of my work associates. I always participate in my RVing groups' potlucks, although I might avoid certain dishes if I feel weary about preparation / ingredients/storage methods.

RE: Newbie Questions that scare him

Decided against roadside plans after reading about LONG wait times as they try to find the cheapest tow around.. Without roadside assistance plan you'll be waiting an extremely long time for no one to show up.

RE: A request for cigarette smokers

In the time it took you to write and post a request to all smoking RVers, you could have easily addressed the offending neighbor with an individual request. Most smokers I know are embarrassed and therefore considerate smokers.

RE: Slab City, California Observations

It they had money they wouldn't be living on a concrete slab with no water/electricity/sewers in the middle of nowhere........ And you know this... how? C'mon.....really? There are people living at The Slabs who have incomes. There are a few who have thriving businesses. Then there are snowbirds who have formed sub-communities, and live there for months at a time.

RE: Slab City, California Observations

Just read this post from SoCal: Posted: 12/19/14 For veterans of Slab City the water at Niland Chamber of Commerce is being shut off. You can still dump tanks there but can't take on water. Shut off 1 Jan '15. Two Rivers rest area Calpat also to close autumn of '15. Soooooo slabs may become a thing of the past. David Slab City
