RE: What Class B has a dry bath

What is a dry bath? I am guessing (and too lazy to google) no shower? Most Class Bs are wet baths in that the bathroom is usually a fiber glass enclosure with toilet, lav and shower head and you shower in it standing up or even sitting down on the toilet seat lid. After you are done you have to wipe and squeegie it down if you want to continue using it for normal bathroom functions. Some have complete surround shower curtains to keep the walls dry. A dry bath has a separate shower stall so the rest of the bathroom doesn't get wet. A wet bath will take up about 6 to 7 square feet of space in a B. A dry bath will take up 15 to 20 square feet of space because the shower stall needs to be nearly as big as a wet bath and the aisle space is enclosed with the bathroom to maneuver. That's why in a B they are usually at the back end extending across the width. Since there is but about 100 effective square feet of space in a B you can see a dry bath takes up an inordinate amount of space.

RE: What Class B has a dry bath

The Pleasure Way Pursuit, call it a B+ or a C, is 22' - 9" long and has a big dry bath. The Leisure Travel Free Spirit SS and Coach House Arriva, although they are Class B Sprinter conversions, are both more than a foot longer than the Pursuit. You might be able to find a Pursuit about 2 years old. You can't give it up can you? The Arriva and Free Spirit SS are not as wide, as tall, and don't look like an ambulance either.

RE: Wincrasher's Report from Hershey RV Show

Thanks for the photos and report. Perhaps Pleasureway has developed a new virtual tank system... invisible to the naked eye. :B It's proprietary patented CLS or Compressed Liquid System technology. ;)

RE: Pleasureway plateau XL and pursuit

Those buses going through the Needles Highway are driven by people who have trained to do so. It is kind of a stunt show. At 8'-4" in width and if you have an awning stuck on the side it would take a miracle for a first time driver to get through in just about any Class C. One guy posted he got through with a B+ but only with scrapes to the body. I've driven through it a few times with a T1N and NC3V Sprinter Class B body with no problem and mirrors not tucked in.

RE: Pleasureway plateau XL and pursuit

Here is a test. Drive the Needles Highway in the Black Hills. If you can make it you probably have a B. :) 8'-4" is the narrowest width. Don't forget if you have an awning on the side or don't fold in your mirrors you probably might not make it with a C or so called B+. Then if you can you have to drive with a very steady hand.

RE: Pleasureway plateau XL and pursuit

The P-W Plateau XL and the Pursuit are Class Cs by the definition of these RV.net boards. Best to discuss and ask there if you want to know. One can believe what they want to believe thinking there are anything like a van based Class B but that subject has been discussed ad nauseam.

RE: Sprinter Reliability

Its The T1N 5 Cylinder Chassis. Reliable As Could Be So Far. the point is all the complaints are about the NCV3. other than the name sprinter and a diesel engine-the T1N and the Ncv3 are 2 totally different vans. it's the NCV3 that has all the issues and what people complain about So, I guess I got to say it again. I've had near perfect service from my NCV3 after 65,000 miles of travel and I am getting another one. The pluses far outnumber the minuses over Chevys as far as van livability and enjoyment in my opinion.

RE: iPhone 6

RE: iPhone 6

The stores don't even have 6 and 6 Plus demos on display, yet they want you to pre-order. I took a cedar shingle and cut mock ups with a radial arm saw to size to play around with in getting used to holding and testing my various pockets I use in shirts, vests and jackets. Both fit in a Wranglers jeans pocket and cargo pants. The 6 is really nice in that regard but I think I will get the 6 Plus. Still, I will bide my time until I can see them in a store. I'm not in that much of a hurry. I've had my 4S for three years but the battery is almost kaput. 2 hours at an RV show taking 64 photos killed my starting out 100% charged iPhone yesterday. I forgot and left my GPS directions on and technically never reached my destination so maybe it was trying to direct me as I was walking around. That could have been part of it. GPS apps burn through batteries. http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k309/Davydd_2006/iPhone6MockUps.jpg

RE: Sprinter Reliability

My two cars are a Mercedes and a Lexus. There is no chance though that I am driving a Mercedes RV 500 miles from a Sprinter mechanic. No thanks. I would much rather have a Ford or Chevy RV on, for example, the Alaskan Highway. And you think there are Ford and Chevy dealers everywhere on the Alaska Highway? Good luck. ;) Yes, I have driven it in a Sprinter.

RE: Service center northwest CT? HELP!

I doubt you'll find many RV service centers that do body work and painting. Most likely if they took it on they would sub it out. We needed body repair from a fender bender on one of our Bs. I just drove around and checked to see if they had garage doors tall enough and picked a local body shop.

RE: iPhone 6

There are obvious work arounds as mentioned but will cost you money since you can't have the same number on two phones. The problem with work arounds is they all seem like a pain in the big A. I'd just wait until you can look at and handle both the new iPhone 6 (4.7) and the iPhone 6 Plus (5.5). Maybe it won't be that bad. I feel I am committed to the 6 Plus because the optical image stabilization comes only on that unit and the bigger screen will be all that much better for photo post processing. I don't use an iPhone for talking but more for email, texting, apps and camera. If it fits in the pockets I want to carry it in, I'm there. I think they will cannibalize the iPad Mini and I hope Apple comes out with a 12" iPad for my next tablet.

RE: Pleasure Way Promaster Lexor

Stan, I own one and love it.. "flaws" and all, and this is my 3rd RV. Everyone is entitled to his opinion, and there's no perfect RV. As the saying goes, one man's ceiling is another man's floor. What is great for some doesn't work for others. What i find unfortunate is the harshness in peoples opinions about what's wrong with another RV. Particularly since many commentors have never even seen the inside of many of the vehicles they so adamantly critique. Isn't that what you just did in regard to the Pleasure-way Lexor? I just responded in kind.

RE: Pleasure Way Promaster Lexor

I'm not sure the Transit could be the substitute for the Excel in that it would attract the same buyers. The Excel was a hybrid with a fiber glass back end built on a van. The Transit unibody will not accommodate that kind of design enhancement. I think Pleasure-way has made its Excel answer through the small Cs, Pursuit, Prestige and Plateau XL. Some Excel owners have already bit in that direction to small Cs over on the Pleasure-way Facebook group.

RE: Pleasure Way Promaster Lexor

with all the advantages of the promaster width, too bad they couldn't come up with a newer and more interesting floorplan. Surely you don't mean a floor plan that sucks like the Travato. All that width and a too narrow 46" wide bed with a corner knocked off. The Pleasure-way Lexor plan is consistent with the rest of their lineup.

RE: Why I do not depend on camground Wifi

Since the subject is campground wifi and not 4G cellular it was my experience in Canada that wifi in campgrounds was vastly inferior to the already bad wifi offered in the United States for the most part. Drive the Alaska Highway and tell me different.

RE: This is ALOT of RED

Roadtrek offers their CS Adventurous Sprinter in Ruby Red, a more subtle and classy maroonish red. I believe, but I haven't seen it, an Advanced RV customer was getting a red Class B.

RE: Roof Vents??

The 2005 Pleasure-way Plateau is 9 years old. Has there ever been a problem with the vent? If not, it should be the last of any concerns.

RE: Roof Vents??

There are no caps and never were any on the 2005 Plateau roof vents (I had one). Why would you need them? Even if it rains the water is only going to go into your black tank or grey tank and it can't be all that much. You could get a little bit of tree debris but that debris will just come out with your gravity dump.

RE: Extra house battery in Pleasure Way Excel

If you buy a B that has sat for any length of time, especially on a dealer lot, where it might have been intermittently demonstrated you can almost bet the battery got abused. I know my first B battery did. Only I did not understand it at the time even though the dealer had to jump start charge the auxiliary battery to demonstrate it.
