RE: R/T spare tire carrier - fit on Pleasure-Way?

It is an entertainment table not a dinner table. It is just a place to place your drinks and snacks.

RE: R/T spare tire carrier - fit on Pleasure-Way?

I first saw the flip down tire carrier on a 2004 Leisure Travel Van Free Spirit nearly a decade ago. The table top option was adapted by them coming from an LTV owner suggestion.

RE: New Roadtrek 'Zion'-----promaster

What we know so far is what Jim Hammill said in the video of around $82,000 MSRP. I would bet that he meant the base price. If anywhere accurate I would think you could use Roadtrek's build your own feature and start from there and add up all the options from one of the other models to get an estimate. Options would not be that much different from B to B. The Pleasure-way Promaster Lexor could be loaded with options. Dealers prefer to sell on spec that way leaving little out. Usually first models in are the show off models. They aren't going to show off bare bones.

This is suppose to be a Roadtrek Promaster Zion discussion. :)

RE: OCCC question. Roadtrek 22 vs PW Plateau

There was a short period maybe a year or two at the most when the NCV3 V6 models first came out and most all the converters built on the 4 wheel 170" WB 2500 chassis. Roadtrek did with the Adventurous RS but Pleasure-way from the get go built on the 6 wheel 3500 chassis for their Plateau. Thor with their Four Winds got out of the Class B business shortly after and Winnebago with their ERA took a year off before coming back with a 3500 chassis. I haven't read a lot of complaints about those years but I would be leery of any NCV3 2500 chassis Class B.

RE: Larger Diameter Tires - Odometer / Speedometer

In our two Sprinters I noticed the speedometer was always faster than the actual speed but the odometer reading was accurate verified against GPS readings and timing marks on the highway. So I am not sure what you accomplish with larger diameter tires. You could just now be getting inaccurate readings.

RE: New Roadtrek 'Zion'-----promaster

Mumkin, Don't take brochures as gospel, especially possibly preliminary ones such as Van City published. It could very well be a rushed draft copy scabbed together by someone not fully versed with the Zion. And of course, Roadtrek may not even have all the details ironed out yet though they say as of December 1st they were on the production line. When I bought my Great West Van I pointed out over a half dozen mistakes in their brochure. So brochures are not always accurate. That 800 amp chassis battery line indeed was a puzzler which brings me back to a hasty scabbed together effort.

RE: New Roadtrek 'Zion'-----promaster

Roadtrek has a couple of objectives. One is to compete at a price point with other Promasters which might mean standard AGM batteries as a base. If 200 ah at 12v output that would be adequate as it competes with all one battery 100 ah Bs and the extra battery compensates for the 12v compressor refrigerator even if there is no solar. Secondly, they are still testing their lithium ion battery systems but they assuredly hinted in their video their Etreknology would extend to the Zion. Their lithium ion battery system is not going to be a simple pull out the AGM and drop a LiFefPO4 in.

RE: Florida state parks B class in tent sites

How many 'vans' are under 15'? Sounds like an unreasonable criterion, to me. :) http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k309/Davydd_2006/MicroVan.jpg

RE: Florida state parks B class in tent sites

I'm trying to remember what Long Key SP looked like but draw a blank. We checked it out as we did every park on the Keys but never stayed there. If they say 15 ft. it might be because it is a pull in group parking site right on the roadway and the campgrounds are dispersed walk in. So essentially if you could fit, you might be sleeping in a parking lot with several other cars right next to you. The other reason sites are designated tents only is because where you can park it may be sloping so much you couldn't possibly level your B. The last reason, of course, is they simply don't want you there in any kind of RV and that could be the sympathy of your camping neighbors. So, I would never make a reservation in advance for a "tents only" designated site especially if I had never seen the campground. I have shown up at campgrounds with such designated areas and have found them satisfactory to use. They generally will not have any utility connections either at the campsite. You may in effect be boondocking with maybe no side room to even put out an awning.

RE: New Travato model, 59K

That Avida Escape has an interesting opposing flared twin bed design to give more width for the shoulders.

RE: 2015 Sprinter 4x4 price and build: +$6500 or $6800

Fastpaddler, Referring to MarkoPolo's place? The Class B Forum is alive and well. The Sprinter only place that has RV discussion is the Sprinter-Source forum. Yeah our driveway drops down from the road 24 feet in elevation over 200 feet and then rises back up again to our house in another 200 foot loop. After a fresh snow and before the plow comes we can slide on it.

RE: 2015 Sprinter 4x4 price and build: +$6500 or $6800

Ground clearance is raised 3.1" in the rear and 4" in the front.

RE: 2015 Sprinter 4x4 price and build: +$6500 or $6800

The 4x4 Sprinter would be appealing to me just to get up my 12% grade driveway in the winter. :)

RE: Dean's Tour of the 2015 Pleasure-Way ProMaster Lexor TS

The T1N Sprinter through 2006 was a 2500 with single wheels and had a towing capacity of 5000 lbs.

RE: Lesson Learned; Stuck in Sand

In snow there is a hard surface you can eventually reach or dig down to. Not so in sand.

RE: I don't know what it is called.

The product they use on fire walls in vehicles is called Dynamat or HushMat, both are an EPDM like rubber with a foil face. It will offer some insulative value as well as sound dampening.

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

Phones are for phone calls? I have a new iPhone 6 Plus and I have dropped it more times than I've made phone calls on it so far. ;) PS. I finally bought a leather case for it so I can grip it better. :)

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

You can find more up to date information on the Great West Van Facebook page than you can on their website.

RE: posting a destination google map on blogspot.com

If you want to screen grab anything on a Mac computer in the way you want to compose it just do Shift-Command-4 and a rectangular lasso tool appears. Just click-hold drag and let up to make a rectangle selection of what you want. It makes a date stamped screen capture jpeg file automatically. You can then refine and edit it in apps like Apple's Preview.
