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.

So... too pooped to post? :B We await your report.

RE: Heading to Hershey tomorrow (Friday, Sept 12)

Was there yesterday, I did not see any Transit based B although there was one unconverted Transit on display. I have not been in a few years but it seemed a lot more crowded than what I remember especially for the opening day. Have Fun! The converters are just starting to receive their platforms to start playing with them, so we won't see anything for awhile. I have seen the Transit as I passed by a dealer here in Minnesota, but didn't have time to stop. Sportsmobile has finally expanded their Transit page and was supposed to be getting them any day now. Someone attending needs to check the new Pleasureway Promaster and bring us all the details with photos, please. Tough to see much on their quickie video.

RE: Pleasure Way Promaster Lexor

Hopefully someone will check it all out for us at Hershey next week. Photos would be great. :B

RE: Pleasure Way Promaster Lexor

The interior is beautiful but not as convenient as the Winnebago design. As always it is a matter of taste. The only thing I found positive or convenient was the large fridge. I disliked the look and the dinette and the seat in front of the door. I suspect the water tank is above the floor (a-la Travato), but it's probably underneath that large wardrobe cabinet behind the driver's seat. Isn't that large cabinet behind the driver the bathroom?

RE: Pleasure Way Promaster Lexor

It looks pretty nice. Because many friends and I had been talking platforms, I called Sportsmobile to ask when we could expect more news on their Promaster and Transit units on their website. She said that the Transits should be showing up for them to start playing with (my term) next week. (I am seeing them at dealerships here) There are problems with the Promaster dropped floors that is interfering with things like tanks and generators... so her opinion was that the Transit will offer more options for buyers. But that is rather changing the topic. I think this Pleasureway unit looks nicer than the Winnebago - with that seat blocking the door. This seems to have a nice bathroom... and the large fridge. I wonder if it will offer a generator and if so, where did they put it? Hopefully someone at Hershey will give us a full report!!

RE: New 2015 Winnebago ERA

Your post made this woman RVer laugh. I started out with a B, and then moved up to a 25' wider body Class C some years later. Even so the 2nd time I drove it, the result wasn't a long visit to a body shop, but only a couple days to do a bit of paint repair. :B Dang weatherstrip on the garage door jumped out when I wasn't looking. Oddly, on the road, my bigger rig drives so much better than my little B did... but that is the difference between an older Ford and a newer Chevy. It sounds like your smaller Sprinter will be perfect for your usage. Have Fun!!

RE: Kwikee Electric Steps

Mine has been problematic since I got my unit. But, mine always stuck out... which is more inconvenient. The problem each time has been the magnet/sensor reading.

RE: Thinking of a new class C

Munkin, the IQ & Profile have been "absorbed" into the rest of the Winnebago Sprinter line. All the Sprinter class C floorplans are available with either overhead bed or not.... Winnebago has really stepped up the interior quality for 2015 too on the Sprinter line Good to see that they are updating the interior as it was getting decidedly cheap looking in the last few years. I didn't see any exterior photos of new units without the big over-the-cab area. So, are you sure that they offer the sleeker iQ and Profile body shape? I'll look again, but it certainly wasn't clear that they did... (maybe it's in a footnote somewhere)

RE: Winnebago ERA 70C

I know that the table can't stay up with the bed out!! LOL Where is the table and bottom parts stored when not in use? :B I'd guess in the closet since that seems the usual in LTV units. My table ends up in storage because I never use tables... even at home.

RE: Winnebago ERA 70C

The 70C looks like something that Winnebago is going to have a hit with. I really like this coach. The pull out bed does not bother me. I have a RT 210P and you have to deal with the power sofa and such. My question is about the front table. Can the table stay up all the time? Where do you store the table top? I love the dedicated shower also and the large bathroom and big sink. This is a real breakout winner!! The main complaint on the LTV model that they have copied is from people who don't like having to put out the slide to open the bed. The second was that the fridge was too small, so they have moved it and put in a 2-door large one. Are you asking in you can leave the table up "all the time"?? Even when you are sleeping in the bed? Obviously one can't open the bed without moving the table.
