RE: Buying a B in Canada

This question comes up once in a while- the CDN version des not meet US DOT standards and needs some modifications to the lighting, safty equipment and possibly the emissions depending on the vehicle. AFAIK the Cdn manufacturers will not sell a US spec version within Canada there are also tax obligations on self importing a vehicle, for that you would need the specific everything and run it past ICE. Myself and my Family have been crossing the border with vehicles since the 60's it has not gotten any easier. Mike Thanks for actually reading the questions Mike. The info you shared was enough to keep me from pursuing this option further. Exactly what i needed to know albeit not what i was hoping for. Thanks again for taking the time.

RE: Buying a B in Canada

Hey folks not trying to be a smart a** but please reread the question . Thanks . Good luck getting help with that attitude! No problem with the attitude. The problem is reading comprehension.

RE: Buying a B in Canada

Sorry you found it not useful. I was trying to be helpful, and I've toured the facility. But since I'm useless to you, I'll stop now. Gee thanks. Hopefully others will have some info that might actually be of some use. I wasn't trying to be mean. It's just that your answer did not address the question. You are not useless to me at all,it was the response that was useless. Sorry if I offended you,it was not personal or my intention. Please reread the question as I am certain you have knowledge that would be helpful. Thanks.

Buying a B in Canada

Does anyone have a personal knowledge or experience purchasing a B in Canada vs the U S ? Are there $$$$ advantages of purchasing in Canada due to the strong U S dollar or do the legal issues of a purchase out of the country outweigh financial considerations? Thanks.

Insurance

In the beginning stage of purchasing a 2017 Pleasure Way B van . Curious as to who you guys insure your b vans with and some ballpark idea of what price I'll be looking at. Thanks.

RE: NEW GUY Looking for Best Hard Side TC for light off roading

Id take a look at northstar as they are non basement so will sit a little lower than most hardwalls. Ive seen a few videos of people off roading with them in Australia. Pretty impressive stuff what do you mean by non basement I'm in the minority on this forum when it comes to this mfg. pm me for about 30 reasons why.

RE: Swingaway storage pod/bike rack combo

Sent them an email a couple of weeks ago but I haven't received a response. They are definitely spendy. You would think someone else would offer something similar. I think that link I posted to the article explains it - the Stowaway decided the engineering issues were too great to add bike racks to their boxes. So the one from Canada did solve the problems, but it would explain why it cost so much. And, at that price there is probably not a very big market. I agree with the notion that the stowaway is way too $pendy ..... but what's a B owner to do that needs both a storage pod and a bike rack but doesn't want either on the front of the B?

RE: Swingaway storage pod/bike rack combo

Why not just hit the contact tab and ask them in email? Then you do not have to call, or deal with a possible language barrier. But, from a couple of years ago - http://roadtreking.com/second-thoughts-about-the-stowaway2-cargo-box/ $2100 (CDN) and they do not ship to the US, but that might have changed.

RE: Swingaway storage pod/bike rack combo

Calls to Canada are typically similar rates as USA calls ( depending on your plan)- you could also use skype or magic jack through your computer to lessen the cost. If you have a t-mobile cell phone, CDN calls are at no extra charge. Be prepared for a possible language barrier- they are in an area when English is a secondary language. BUT the company is dunderheaded not to list prices and other info on their site...I always assume it is overpriced mike yep i think you are right about the price but i have not found an alternative. Called VZ and for $5 i can get 30 days of calls to Canada. Think i will go that route.

RE: Swingaway storage pod/bike rack combo

I think this is the trailer hitch product that you had seen. The company is based in Quebec. http://nicova.ca/en/products/ Thought of getting one myself, but they are kind of pricey. Thank you, Thank you so much,that is exactly what i was looking. Just wish i had been smart enough to find it myself. Next question is will they ship to the US and what is the cost, i could not find either on the link. Thanks again for the info !!!! To answer if they will ship to US, why don't you just call them instead of asking here? Their phone number is listed in the "contact us" section of their website. Not that your sarcasm deserves an answer but i did not call because it is a Canadian # which is not free or inexpensive and i'm cheap. :B Really appreciate your input,it was very helpful (sarcasm).

RE: 6.0 diesel in a Chinook?

This is the first time I've heard of someone actually wanting a 6.0 specifically. Ford used the problem-free 7.3 Powerstroke diesel in the E350's from '95-'03. That is the one I would be looking for.:)

RE: Swingaway storage pod/bike rack combo

Possibly Thule or Yakima might make something like that...t Thanks for the response but already researched them both but no love. Sure wish I had gotten the mfg when I had a chance,sigh. If anyone else has a thought I would be very appreciative .

Swingaway storage pod/bike rack combo

Does anyone know a company that might mfg such a thing for a class B? I saw one on a B van in Florida but failed to ask the owner the brand but he did indicate it was purchased in Canada. Thanks

Dish vs Direct Satellites

I currently have Directv which requires a clear view of the southern sky. Which direction do you point Dish Network? Thanks.

RE: sleeping quarters on a class b

Sorry folks it took me so long to check your posts,been super busy. Many good responses that make me hopeful that a good night sleep is a reasonable expectation. I wish the Pleasureway Plateau RB model was still offered as that is exactly what we need,sigh. We are leaning heavily toward a 2016 Pleasureway Plateau FL. It comes very close to meeting most of our needs. At the risk of hijacking my own thread i would love feedback from anyone with this make/model B van,especially the bed,storage and anything else you would be willing to share. Thanks again all for your responses.

RE: sleeping quarters on a class b

step up to a small C ,you won,t regret it. No can do for a whole host of reasons not the least of which is the HOA. Plus for me to have an RV without filon is priceless and far outways any benefits associated with fiberglass RV's.

sleeping quarters on a class b

I would appreciate a bit of feedback from those who have spent long trips on their B's. Specifically how comfortable is the sofa bed for sleeping and how aggravating is it to make up day after day and where do you store all that bedding. thanks.
