RE: Definition of a Class B vs Camper Van?

I consider the terms interchangeable. I think Camper Van was the original term... and RVIA created the idea of Classes for commercial production. I'm just speculating...

RE: Forget the Roadtrek, check out this class B before you die!

Very nice job. I wouldn't mind if it was camped next to me.

RE: Roadtrek 190 and 210 chassis

GM has been in negotiations about replacing the Express van for about the last 5 years, but in a search not long ago, I couldn't find any final answer. I do know that Roadtrek is have a difficult time getting platforms for conversion. So... your guess is as good as anyone elses. I don't think GM even knows for sure yet.

RE: where are the "B" people?

I'm with AsheGuy, there is nothing blurry about the difference between a B and C. It has now been clearly explained. I traded my first B for a small C and am now back in a B. (changes due to different needs) I found two comments in this thread confusing. One was the idea that a Class B doesn't have a generator. Even in 2004 when I bought my first B, it was thought odd that I ordered it without a generator and the dealer pushed me to at least put in the prep package because he was certain that the next purchaser would want one. (and sure enough... the first thing the buyer did was put one in) The other was comments that they didn't see B's on the road. I completely disagree with that. When I had my first one 13 years ago, I did rarely see one. Now I see them often... every day when I am traveling between MN and AZ I see a few. Lots of Sprinters which often don't really look like RVs since B people tend to NOT have those flashy (and I think ugly) stripes all over them. My little RT has no stripes and no words painted on it anywhere. It is just a tallish pretty silver van... with only the distinctive 3 windows on the front to show that it is a Roadtrek. And I agree that most of the B people seem to be over on Facebook, which is an irritating and highly inefficient way to discuss RVs and their maintenance issues. They also tend to be divided by brand.

RE: B-ing with a cat

I've known lots of RVers with cats. I even see leash trained kitties and a very few that let their cat wander a bit, but they stay close by. I've also heard a number of stories of the cat doing a runner and never seen again. So... you need to know your cat and handle its reactions.

RE: Remember the 1960's Hippie VW vans? No more!

Looks nicely engineered, but can't imagine doing more than a few days in it... did he suggest an around the world sort of thing? LOL

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

Not really surprising that he shows up on The Google. He has been active on the net using his real name... unlike some of us. :B

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

It's too bad none of us have his email so we could touch base and see how he is doing on his work.

RE: How do you get used to such a small bed?

They took the generator out and hooked it up to their propane and it ran fine, the regulator had to be replaced, and it caused a problem with the stove. They had to empty the tanks and clean out all the gunk that was in there, reinstall the gen, took else where to refill. They charge $120 an hour, why? because apparently they can. Your signature says this is a 2015? How the heck could it have accumulated any gunk anywhere?? You got screwed... but then you knew that. I'd say time to find a new RV service place. Live and learn... I would also recommend that you look at something with twin beds if you find that this doesn't work for you this winter. The Winnebago Travato on the Promaster has a twin floor plan.

RE: nissan nv rooftop air

Some Roadtreks are coming with 11000 BTU units, so smaller are available.

RE: Road trek 170

Be sure to go to the Roadtrek website and put your name in for the $1000 rebate on any new vehicle. You send them a copy of your sale receipt and they mail you a check... I too downsized from a Class C to a 170. Be ready to have NO storage. LOL

RE: Great West Van?

It would probably help if you mentioned the year.

RE: Real age

To have a 2 year difference is very common with 2008/2010 RVs. The usual difference is only one year. But, if you remember 2008, there were big economic problems in the country and many manufacturers ended up with a supply of 2008 vans. (and many went bankrupt) Winnebago in particular apparently had hundreds of them. I would bet that all their rigs for 2009 and 2010 were built on 2008 platforms. Just for your information, the Navion is not a Class B, it is a Class C that was built on a cutaway Sprinter. (Their Class B is called the Era) But that doesn't matter in relation to your question, as this happened with both Class B and Class C units manufactured in these years.

RE: Dodge Promaster Chassis

If you are on Facebook, you might want to send a request to join the Roadtrek Owners Group. There are Zion and SRT owners there... not sure about any Simplicity owners, but it is basically just a Zion with fewer bells and whistles.

It has been 3 years since he posted. I heard that he was having some health issues. I miss his posts. I loved the little comments that he always ended his posts with...

RE: Any Class B Winnebago owners Here?

I agree with the exception of this: A so called B+ is just a marketing term started by LTV for a small Class C The B+ term had appeared before LTV started building the Serenity and Libero, and they properly called both of them a Class C. Then they were purchased by EEE, who had been a manufacturer of Class A and traditional Class C rigs. They changed the advertising of the Serenity, Libero, and new Unity rigs to Class B. Neither company ever used the B+ term for any of their rigs. (can't speak about their dealers... who tend to do as they please) I nagged them about it for the 4 years that I owned my Libero, and suddenly not long after I traded it in, their website suddenly started referring to them properly as Class C. So not sure who invented the term B+, but it wasn't LTV.

RE: Winnebago 59K Mattress sliding off base

This isn't a trailer, it is a Class B. I haven't noticed anyone mention this issue on the other Class B discussion boards. Most owners seem to love the set-up.

RE: Best in class

These folks have some pretty neat stuff... Canadian made! Leisure travel vans They build beautiful RVs... but they no longer build any Class Bs. They only build small Class Cs. A shame as they put out one of the very top units in the business.

RE: Slide accident - alignment issues.

It was Leisure Travel that put the slide on the Sprinter. They stopped because they stopped making B's... and now only make small C's. Winnebago copied and continue to produce them on one of the Era models.
