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

According to their brochure on this unit: Black 12 Gray 22 Fresh 29 My biggest beef would be the lack of closet space.

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

If I want to look at the internet, I want a real screen, so I use my laptop. My cell is for communications on the road... and at home I use Skype for calls. Total cost for phone service (including long distance - US and Canada) nationwide is $11 a month.

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

My phone only does phone calls. :C They have a lot of the same information, but it is much better organized now. The online DYO planner hasn't been updated and probably won't be for awhile. But, the new floor plans are in the DYO section where you can print them off and play paper dolls with their furniture options. There are still a few uncompleted pages here and there. For those pondering Promaster versus Transit, if you do the dropdown "van info" for each of them... go down to the bottom of the new page and pick "Van Dimension Comparisons." It gives you the various length options with the convertible space.

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

... but you must be joking about Sportsmobile's website. That place may actually suffer from too much info. And most of it is outdated and has changed significantly. My information was from them... not "joking"... as they told me a couple months ago that a new website wass being created. And if you click on it today... as I just did... you will see their new website!! :B Now I am going to see how it is working.

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

Changing a website is amazingly easy and takes so little time that it verges on neglect. If they have investers then they are being ill served and that goes for any company. It's a web world now. Since it is so easy and takes so little time, why don't you volunteer to create it for them? They are a small company with private ownership. At this point, they are selling what they produce. They are not Roadtrek or Pleasureway or Triple E... and as Davydd says, there is more on Facebook. A good website is complicated and expensive if you don't have anyone on staff to do it. The existing website is not very good anyway. I suspect that they plan to abandon it and start over. I know that the new Sportsmobile website has been "in process" for months now and still not up either. Not to mention that Pleasureway doesn't have the new Promaster on their website yet. Wonder how long it will take Roadtrek to get theirs up. where can I find a floor plan to that model. As far as I know, one hasn't been published anywhere. You can figure it out from the photos easy enough. That is a prototype.

RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

Great West is putting a shower inside I have pics from them in my e-mail of some of the inside and it looks really nice. I'm trying to get those pics up on here. I wrote them a month or so back and they told me they are having shower, I specifically asked them that, they are taking orders for them now. You can contact their sales department and they will send you photos. Going to be starting at $80,000. GW is still playing catch-up after the move from Winnipeg to Alabama. They really need to get their website updated, and even communication by phone can be difficult. I do know from people who have been in contact with them that - like the old GWV company - they are willing to do tweaks to the floor plan. Like if you don't want that drop down bed, they will put up the usual cabinets. They can take out the two extra front seats and add more cabinetry there too.

RE: What you've been waiting for,,,Transit campervan

Been tried here... didn't sell. Only lasted a year or two.

RE: What you've been waiting for,,,Transit campervan

That floorplan would work great for single travelers. They would have to flip it around to work with our system. I like it...

RE: Michelin tire blow out!!

Scary stuff... glad it was all a happy ending. Glad to see that someone posted a link to what to the video of what to do if a front tire blows. I've watched it a few times, but hope that I am never tested to see if I remember it in an emergency.

RE: Who provides service ?

Mine is a Chevy 3500, so smaller than yours, but before I bought it, I went to the local Chevy dealer and he said it was too big for him, but sent me to the GMC truck shop and they have done all the work since. I had the check engine light problem last winter, and the Chevy garage in AZ suggested the new gas cap and turned the light off. It soon came back on, so I bought the cap and it went off for about a month. When I got back to ND, I took it in and it was a minor leak in the exhaust system that they fixed under warranty. So, my experience has been quite different. It depends on where you are I guess.

RE: new class c with the chevy/ who makes

Phoenix offers many more options for moving things around. Since LTV was taken over by Triple E, and moved up-market... not to mention become so popular... they don't allow much wiggle room. They have rather abandoned the off-road/boondocker market of the traditional Class B where they started. But when you can't build them fast enough to allow dealers to have any inventory, you tend to not see the need for individual tweaks. It is a part of the old LTV that many of us miss.

RE: Ford Transit vs Nissan NV--comparison

Not quite... The Nissan NV200 is the size of the Ford Transit... and is a rather attractive little van that looks nothing like its ugly big brother. Nissan NV200

RE: new class c with the chevy/ who makes

That Libero rig has a nice mix of many things we consider important in a small Class C (however, we're Ford fans). And I bought it specifically because I am not. :B - Interior height is marginal for tall folks. Fortunately I'm short. - Why no single bed tucked into that overhead cab area? Because it would only hold an infant or maybe up to a 3 year old. It is specifically for people who don't want or need a bed up there and want the better mileage provided by an aerodynamic front shape. The dinette directly under that area is a bed and it would be silly to have both unless you want someone jumping out of bed and walking over you. - Why isn't it offered on the Chevy 4500 chassis for a little more mechanical ruggedness and maybe slightly better ground clearance? Not sure why... really not an off-road type of RV...

RE: Ford Transit vs Nissan NV--comparison

Not to mention that it is the most butt-ugly thing I've ever seen. None of the converters seemed to have picked it up. Roadtrek added only a bed and seats... no galley or bath. Sportsmobile hasn't updated their Nissan page since 2012, so there was apparently little interest - and their models had no bathrooms shown. There must be a reason that there was actually zero interest. But for a DIY model, it is all about how it will fit your needs.

RE: new class c with the chevy/ who makes

If it is quality you are looking for on a Chevy... the LTV Libero is the one. They are nearly impossible to find used, and a new one has a 6-9 month wait. Comfortable cab and handles beautifully with nothing after market added.

RE: Tardis Encounters Van Conversion

Vanadu? :C I like the 1957 Chevy fender added to the rear... nice touch. Too bad there are no interior shots.

RE: How to remove gasoline contamination in freshwater tank

Thanks for the detailed instructions. I am relieved that my water fill requires the use of a hose because by the age of most of us here, one never knows when after a long tiring day what one might do...

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. Mystery solved... it may have been mentioned and I missed it, but I spoke to them today and the tanks will be in the usual places: black under the toilet and gray/fresh underneath. They just weren't complete by the time it needed to go to Hershey. But they enjoyed our discussion. :B We will have to wait for a few more years for virtual tanks or cloud storage. Also they will be working on a Transit prototype once they get them. Fun times ahead in the B world.
