RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

At least you have a good excuse for not working on the van. Your new living room is gorgeous. Next we watch the garage go up I guess.

RE: Pricing

With the 2015 models out, what is a reasonable percentage of the MSRP to expect to pay for a new 2014 model? Discounts depend on manufacturer, part of the country, and how much the dealers are allowed to change the "MSRP." There is no general answer to the question. There is a Sportsmobile dealer in Indiana. MB chassis,etc. In effect they make a unit to your specs. Decent prices with less fluff and more functionality. Worth a looksee. Regards, I think I would call them a manufacturer rather than a "dealer." Always nice to have one built just as you want it. And you avoid having to pay a dealer in the mix.

RE: MH Magazine review Winnebago Era 70 C

Pretty much a straight rip-off of the LTV Free Spirit SS... the first to use the slide option on the Sprinter in North America. LTV has so many orders for its small Class C vehicles that they have suspended production of their Sprinter Class B units for the foreseeable future. So, Winnebago will get their copy out at the right time.

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

I don't think Roadtrek even knows the price yet. They just presented the prototype at the show and you can hear what they said as to price (low 80s) in the video. I called Roadtrek and asked the questions that we had on the battery and they said that nothing is yet settled as to how many, what kind or where as yet... and/or what is standard and what are the options. (Oh... that Dynamax is a Class C, not a B anyway... so you might want to start a thread over there to discuss it)

RE: Which of these 2 TRAVATOs would you buy?

The majority of the posters on that board - even those who have had the usual issues - are happy once all is fixed. A couple people have had "lemons" and had them replaced. It seems pretty similar to the first year of the Sprinter roll out here in the US.

RE: Which of these 2 TRAVATOs would you buy?

Have any of you travato owners had the squealing brakes issue that is being discussed on the Promaster forums? If I was buying a 2015, I would want to 2015 platform...

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

My brochure is a copy of the one handed out at the big dealer show by Roadtrek to their dealers. That is probably where Van City got theirs too. But certainly there will be changes from the prototype It be nice if there was an option in these class B's for a single person traveling with a large dog. One of those rear beds could either be eliminated or made to flip up so you get more floor space. Of course then you give up storage. As a single person I don't need two beds/loungers or as much storage. I need more floor space and an a bigger bathroom. I know exactly what you mean about there not being much on the market that appeals to the single traveler with a dog... of any size. It is pretty much Sportsmobile... and for now Great West is still flexible and will make lots of changes to their prototype as per your wishes. The other positive for those two builders is that they will build on the smaller Promasters. The big manufacturers are all focused on the 21 ft model.

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

My bad... I'm looking at a dim printout and didn't pay attention to the fact that 2 6v AGMs is an option. In the chassis section it says Battery 800 amp (I thought it meant the starter battery) I haven't a clue what that means. (I got an emailed copy of the brochure) As to the fridge... that means that it is always 12v and if you plug into 110 then the converter/inverter is merely re-charging the batteries as you draw?

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

Got my hands on the brochure info... The tank sizes are pretty decent 35 Fresh 19 Black 20 Gray 2 6v AGM batteries The 5cf fridge is only 12v?? (is that enough battery for this on the road?) Water Heater is only propane (?)

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.
