I have good words about Triple-E.
One thing to keep in mind, Class B's are very expensive for what you get.
I would also look at the very short Class C's. About the same price.
But of course, not as good MPG.

PS..Thanks Ron for input.

Nexus does have seams forward but the leading fiberglass piece is more like a pan than a deep bucket. The Nexus seams are a number of inches rearward of the leading edges. It's a lot better than the generic construction, but not as good as the full bucket design where seamwork starts behind the van portion, far away from the worst of the stresses and resinations.

Hee, hee. That's a "Ron" term. I have my own descriptive RV language.

This is a B Class forum. Comparing a B to a C is pointless. To note that a B is expensive for "...what you get", is insupportable. Try to find a C class the size of a B class Sprinter with a full king size bed at the rear.Likely you will get a gaucho in the middle, unless you go beyond 22-23 ft. I have had the big ones from over 28 feet and down to 22 ft, C class. The fuel costs and parking problems were a real pain-in the wallet too. I get around 30mpg on a Canadian gallon. Resale on Sprinter diesels is very good pricewise. There are great C class units but when we are discussing B class RVs one has to look at the units on the market, usually a B class Sprinter type or a B class PW Excel TS/TD type with a fiberglass body.
Most people want a) good sleeping arrangements and b) a bathroom.Everything else is a matter of personal fancies.

Yes!! Triple E is alive and doing well. You might want to check out Triple E GT24MB Regency. Van City in St. Louis carries them as well as the Mercedes version made by Leisure Travel Vans. Leisure and Triple E are made by the same manafacturer. Awesome quality in their units. We have a 2012 Triple E Regency GT24MB, and we love it. We have had it since Sept. 2011. It is a quality built unit and after a year's travels from Canada to LA, and through TN, AR, MS, SC, NC and the Applachian and Smokey Mountains we have had no problems. My husband is very pleased with the Ford chassis and the power we have on 8% to 10% grades and it's handling on very curvy mountain roads.

We love the Murphy bed, the small slide with u-shaped lounge, and our large dressing area and residential shower. They are made in Winkler, Canada (Manitoba), and we have toured the factory. We were very impressed with the fit, finish, quality, and attention given to small details of all the units coming off the production line. We have owned a Born Free BFT and a Chinook Glacier, and in our opinion the Regency is a better quality built unit. It is pricy but well worth it in our opinion and we have lots of carrying capacity that some of the smaller C's/B+'s don't have and ample storage. It has extra insulation, heated tanks, and dual pane windows and can take the northern winters. It's just another option you might want to consider. Good luck in your search!!

Look at the new 2013 Leisureway Free Spirit SS - It has a slide as well as a Stand alone Shower. It is a Class B built on a Sprinter Chassis. I think you'd like it. There web site has an excellent video.

Bigfoot is back in business but only for TC's and TT's.
