1989 Dodge XPLORER RV Class B - Purchased 10/15/10 XM Satellite Radio since 12/25/2004
Girlfriend purchased a Class C 2002 Dynamax Carri-go on 5/1/15 We've got the best of both worlds.
The Airstream Sprinter Westfalia is one of the few Class Bs that actually provided two workable sleeping areas but still in a B were not totally private. There were very few sold and are fast aging but still coveted.
At best, Bs are designed for a maximum of two adults. Roadtrek has the convert front seats to beds but that seems more for children.
The best Class B bet is design your own solution through Sportsmobile possibly with a dropdown overhead bunk solution in the back.

Thanks everyone for your input. I forgot I posted this until I was out in town today and couldn't wait to get back. We got an offer on our house, not a good one though I don't think so all focus went to that. I like the wide body vans. Before this, I was considering something like the little fiberglass eggs: Scamp, Casita, Eggcamer, Lil' Snozzy, Parkliner but then it looked like I would need still, a fairly beefy tow vehicle to really get the job done. I'll take a look at your suggestions, thank you.
Another idea might be a small class C. The downside of a class C is that it is longer, so you will have to get two parking places, but Phoenix Cruiser has some floor plans that might fit what you need, providing full beds. They also have a slide-out as an option which helps with room as well. Of course, the upside is more space.
If the vehicle is going to be a daily driver, I'd probably go with a 3/4 ton pickup truck and a travel trailer. However, this is just an opinion of a random Internet denizen.
Before they went out of business.....XPLORER (I owned 4 of them) all with rear bed and front sofa that was sepertated by bathroom and closet..... Xplorer 230 XLW wide body, the best ever (wish Roadtrek would do custom interiors) .....last year sold 2004.......seen quite a few 1999-2003's for sale....Dodge chassie, great slide out storage underneath.....

I'm not sure why you would eliminate the small egg campers. I would think any of the Class B's should be able to pull a 2,000 lb trailer without too much trouble. The advantage of this scenario is the trailer could be left at home on some of the trips if it is not needed.
