RE: how long let b sit before starting

My 2004 Ford based GWV wouldn't start if it sat for a week. Ford insisted that there was nothing wrong with the battery and wouldn't cover it under the warranty. My current Chevy will start up with no problem even after sitting for a month. So YMMV... and few around with much experience with the Promaster. Perhaps on the Promaster Forum? Personally I would get a battery disconnect put directly on the battery. That is what I had to do with my Ford and it worked like a charm. It was one of these: battery disconnect switch

RE: Pleasure-Way ProMaster Lexor $98,788.00

I am surprised that the front seats do not swivel. I believe that Roadtrek and Winnie are using swivel seats. There is an aftermarket available if PW doesn't switch over..

RE: Floorplan like the Unity U24MB

You will not find anything similar in a Class B. The Unity is a Class C (LTV has it incorrectly labeled). I do believe that there are some cheaper manufacturers who have done a knock-off. So, you should try asking this question in that section.

RE: Fitted black out shades for Econolines?

Not all the Canadian rigs, as LTV uses good window coverings. But, these days, they don't produce any B's as their small C's are too popular for them to keep up with the orders.

RE: Looking for Guidance/thoughts on a Class B.

Check out the Sportsmobile website. They help people sell their rigs or sell those they take in trade when buying a new rig from them. They are listed on the "Pre-owned" link in the upper right corner of the homepage. Sportsmobile They could also make changes for you to make the rig fit your wants and needs more closely.

RE: Front floor mats for 2013 PW Lexor?

I went through this with my Chevy too. For some reason, no one makes them. I bought the ones made by Chevy, but they are too small and not much use really.

RE: LTV Unity MB 2015.5 roof access

Since so few have been delivered so far, this would be a good question to ask the factory directly.

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

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.
