RE: Showers in Class B motorhomes?

I could deal with a sit-on-the-toilet shower. Just seems to me the aisle shower would be a major pain. Its easier to sit on a tree stump and wash out of a bucket!:E

RE: Toyo Tires

I ran Toyo's for almost 7 years....never any complaints. Went to Firestone's this pass and gave the Toyo's to a neighbor with a LG Truck business. He's still using them.

RE: Mercedes V6 diesel

OK. Thanks to you all. It all may be for naught because I got an off the cuff quote from the RV dealer for my coach and they said "in the 25K neighborhood"... I thence told him he could stuff his quote where the sun dont shine if thats the best they can do. I know its not worth new price....heck even "Im" not worth new prices.....:B,,:S....but to let my rig go for 25K..... I'll let it sit till the Alcoa's rust off it! Well DANG! I was getting excited about hearing of your new wheels. If I may suggest.... I helped my neighbor sell her 14 View Profile about 6 months ago after her hubby passed. It took about 6 months to move it. It had about 750 miles on it and the plastic was still on the carpets. Initially, she took it back to the dealer here in town to see if they could put it on the lot. They were willing to 'take it off her hands' for about 50% of her purchase price. (Yes, he sold it to her...) I thought we could do better. She eventually got about 90% of her purchase price back. What I learned: Your local newspaper may be one of your best advertising values... and any 'big' city close by. That's what brought in the tire kickers and lookers....eventually a buyer. I also added a listing on iRV2 forums. They have a very nice easy to use "Classifieds" section. You can add photos, etc., etc.. That got lots of coverage and a couple nibbles. I also posted on the Sprinter-Forum classified (it had a 3500 chassis). I prepared a short and long form 'brochure'in PDF that I could email to interested parties. Printed the small ones and posted at our local RV shops and RV camps. They didn't bring anyone in but it made it easy to tell someone what was in the coach. Hope this helps..... Well mine is 15 years old and now its winter....*sigh* But if I have to keep it cover till nest spring...so be it. Ive done that many a winder before. As I said its NOT new....but only has about 54K miles on a ISC Cummins.....far from being worn out. Does need tires or anything...so Im not going to bend over and give it away!

RE: Mercedes V6 diesel

Sully, I always liked your informative posts and opinions on the Class A forum and it is good to see you over on the Class C forum. We had a 39' DP and towed a Jeep Patriot, but decided to make life simple and bought a 2013 Via 25T. We love it because it is so simple to set up and disconnect, and a dream to drive. In Colorado we get 15-16mpg and in the flatlands about 17-18mpg. Although I still have all of my tow bars and the Jeep, I have never felt the need to tow it. We now get off the highway as soon as possible and enjoy all the back roads and small towns in this great country. Most of the time we spend 2 or 3 days in one campground, and use the Via for sightseeing and shopping when we move on to the next campground. We have 27,000 miles on it and had 2 services from Mercedes which are pricey, about $450, but the engine runs like a charm. We have parked for 1 or 2 weeks in AZ, and rented a car and it just seems a lot easier than having a toad. You have a good Winnebago dealer in Dayton, Lewis RV, and I understand they have great pricing on new and used MB Winnies. Let us know if you need more information. I am in my 70's and this has brought a new era of exciting rv trips. I appreciate the comments. It MIGHT JUST BE that I'll be trading for a new Thor Siesta. Lots smaller and IM TOLD will have sufficient power to satisfy me..???

RE: Mercedes V6 diesel

Sully2- I traded my 2000 36' Dp on a 24'Thor Siesta with the Mercedes 6cyl engine in June of this year. Now have 8000 miles with no problems. Consistently 16mpg, smooth running and easy to handle. Florida to Niagara and just returned from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Seldom use the toad, just not necessary. Available power has not been a problem. While Freightliner seemed to support DIY maintenance, Mercedes seems to want more control. Maintenance overall is simpler. Weight ratings on the sprinter chassis are close. My unit basic weight is just under 10K,(full fuel & propane + driver) GVWR is 11030 GCWR is 15250. Rated to tow 5000# but if at GVWR only 4200# is available. MY toad is also just under 4000# and tows easily. Thanks for the info. Its just what I need for some calculations. Thanks again!

RE: Mercedes V6 diesel

Smooth running. VERY quiet outside and inside even under full throttle. Efficient. Amazing power considering it is only 3 liters. Flat torque curve from 1100 to 3500 RPM. Quick reving. Common Rail Diesel. Variable vane turbocharger. '13s and on are BlueTec & equiped with selective catalyst reduction and diesel particulate filters and require diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). Practically speaking, Bluetec means the V6 has more torque and power..gets better MPG ... than the earlier V6. Very nice wide ratio five speed automatic that you can "Paddle shift" if you wish. Ours cruises at 65 turning a little less than 2400 rpm. Our 10K lb+ 14 View Profile 24G gets 15+ mpg most of the time. They do REQUIRE Mercedes specification 229.51 / .52 oil to protect the emission controls. 10,000 mile oil changes. Our second Sprinter OM-642 V6 diesel RV. No mechaicals. As to the expense of repairs.... If you break or have to repair ANY modern diesel it will be expensive..... VERY important info for me at least. Mucho thanks

RE: Mercedes V6 diesel

We have a 2015 Itasca Navion with that engine and my Husband loves it. We tow a Jeep Wrangler with it and my Husband said he can't even tell it's back there. Im looking at dragging a Jeep Liberty thats slightly less than 4000
