If you want info about the View, which is a Class C, you should post in the Class C forum. There are several owners over there, and most may never see this thread.

Thank you for your reply. I am really interested in a B, the View is just what I seem to be finding the most of. I am also mostly interested in the Sprinter, and '06 and '07 info would apply to both, and be the same. Thanks again!

The engine, and drive train are the same, but the View is built on a cut-away chassis, has dual rear wheels, has different handling characteristics, and only gets 2 or 3 mpg better than a Chevy, or Ford Class B. Yes, they are both Sprinters, but very different RV's,

Thanks for the link. I'll see if I can find a B that's just right for us on that site

I had an '07 Roadtrek built on an '06 chassis. Got 23mpg and loved it until the resonator went out twice. I traded it for a '11 View with the corner bed, dual wheels, lots storage, etc. I hated the way the View drove and the fact I could not use it for a second vehicle and park it where I wanted like I could the Roadtrek. After trying to sell it for 6 months or so, I took a loss and traded it for another Roadtrek. I love it! So glad to be back in a B! Point being--drive both types before you decide.

See this is why we are all here. You can't buy this kind of feed back.

The one line " and the fact I could not use it for a second vehicle and park it where I wanted " says it all.

There is so much to be said about size.

Our blog (signature) documents all our experience (except 1st year) with our '04 Sprinter/'05 conversion LTV now with over 100K miles on it. If you really like to "read all day long" you might be interested.

We have had two resonator failures but they were an inconvenience and not a disaster. The first was in Nova Scotia at the end of a Maratimes trip and we made it to Boston for repair. We carry a spare now thanks to a generous RV.net reader. Haven't gone for the metal replacement but with a spare it will never go out again.

Good luck in your search, we love our B.

My van is built on an early 2004 chassis and I bought the metal replacement resonator to prevent a problem. I went to install it and Found out my van never had one. So those of you keeping the plastic pos resonator because it is original, throw it it as far as you can and replace it once with the metal one and forget about it. it does nothing but quiet the intake air, and even that is not noticeable enough to get stuck in limp mode.
