For the past 6-7 years I have followed the "B" forum on RV.Net. They were very stubborn about defining a "B" as the original van configuration. I attended the B7 Rally in Ohio 4 years ago and when a "Winnebago View" showed up it caused quite a stir. I pick up my Navion 24G this Tuesday. This model does not have a bed over the front cab. Would this be considered a B+ on this forum? I am enjoying reading this forum and hope to meet many of you "down the road"!
Just purchased a new Navion 24G (Itasca). Pick up in a week. I have been an active "B" owner for the past 7 years and have enjoyed RV.Net. I am sure I'll have lots of questions once I bring it home in a week or so. Looking forward to getting to know other "C" owners.
Ditto on loving the 5 cylinder Sprinter. Get a metal turbo resonator (put in on yourself if possible)! I have a 2005 with 95,000 miles. Been over the Rocky Mountains several times and always had plenty of power and I continue to get 22-23 mpg.
Drove it to a Sprinter shop and had a NY State inspection and an oil change (ouch!) ! Also had the Tires inspected. So I'm all set for a trip to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks. We stay at Huntington Beach State Park. We will be there for 8 days. Oh, I also ran the Genny for a couple of hours when I got home. Washed the van and cleaned the wheels.
Here in upstate NY we are bracing for "Sandy". I filled the propane tank Saturday and parked the "B" near the house. I am ready to run the ONAN if power goes out. I am hoping to keep the frig and a few lights going if necessary in the house. It's an Onan 2500. Will it run a few appliances? I'm guessing it should! If not we can stay in the van and watch the news.
