RE: A site for all y'all wanting to do a mini-camper or DIY van

Having had a limited conversion on my Sienna, I can see some appealing tweaks that he has done. If or when I decide to downsize again, helpful to keep in mind. Quite a good idea to sell the kits on eBay for those who can DIY.

RE: For those who _insist_ on a unique RV

He may know costs and how much labor went into it... but I'd say his chances of getting that much are slim or none. People with that kind of cash lying about are usually too smart to get overcharged for any product...

RE: Big announcement today from Leisure Travel Vans/Triple E

I sent a message to LTV and asked them if they were really kidding, or what? I get their regular postings and I will visit their plant at Winkler, Manitoba late this Spring to see their line-up including the Free Spirit SS w/slideout. Nice wood but I would be surprised if they sell any. Maybe this is a one-off test to see how people react to woody interiors. One can only wonder how many on their email list didn't bother to listen to the end of the video. Gotcha Fastpaddler!!:B

RE: Leisure Travel first new product

Note the date... and the price...

RE: Big announcement today from Leisure Travel Vans/Triple E

I didn't even see the price, but as I was watching the video, I was thinking... why has Dean not mentioned the retro look of this trailer? Also I was thinking about the fact that GWV is building a small "egg" trailer for towing behind their B Class conversions. The "new" concept of "bunk beds" did crack me up... I believe that Triple E started out as a builder of travel trailers.

RE: How level is level enough?

I'm wondering how I would ever know the number of degrees off level that I am. Is there a handy/dandy little device that will tell you that? I have one of those star-shaped EZ Levels, but it only tells you in which direction you aren't level, but not how many degrees. And no... I have no "aps" as my phone is even dumber than I am.

RE: Preparing for a cold night

I don't get concerned until it gets down below 25 (as I was told by a number of long time RVers including my Dad, dealer, and 2 manufacturers in Canada).

RE: What Happened to Triple E RV?

I've seen articles (from seemingly reputable car/truck websites)that the E-450 would be continued for some years... and others have said that it would be gone in a year or two. It seems Ford is not sticking to one story and it may depend on how quickly they can produce the Transit versions here in the US. Triple E is going by what they are being told by Ford. Not from various rumors from the web. Fortunately their Sprinter based units are selling like hot cakes...

RE: Registering Class B in Indiana-Van or RV?

I recommend you ask the same question of your insurance agent/company. Usually (at least in my experience) an RV is much less expensive to insure than is a passenger vehicle. x2 You want to be sure that it doesn't affect your being insured as an RV. If it is totaled, you don't want to just be reimbursed for an empty Sprinter work van. :C

RE: Promaster Road Test

Sounds like it will need more work than the Sprinter to handle properly...

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

No matter what it goes with... it still looks like a car seat. I'm wondering about those buttons on the side. Do they still work? (Obviously the same as those on my Toyota) If I push the forward and back buttons, does the chair whizzzzz along? :B

RE: Pleasure Way Pursuit

Because it is built on a cutaway chassis, it is a C. A Class B comes from the factory as a van. An over the cab bed isn't a good way to decide the class as you can find such on both B's and C's. Way too many seem to have this as the only deciding factor. LOL I have the LTV version of your Pursuit, but on a Chevy. I really like the size... more living space than a B, but still small and easy to drive.

RE: New Small Chevy B potential

Naa... what I described started back in the 70's. And the jobs moved overseas mostly in the 90s...

RE: New Small Chevy B potential

It shouldn't be all that surprising. For years, GM would design one car - change the grill/tail lights, and the seat covers and radio button or something and call one of them a Chevrolet, one a Buick, one a Pontiac, one an Oldsmobile, and one Cadillac... all with different sales prices... even though they were all the same car. They probably fired all the engineers to be able to pay all the executives...

RE: New Small Chevy B potential

Mumkin, it's a rebadged Nissan going to GM, not a GM product being rebadged going to Nissan. Obviously... since there are 2013 Nissan NV200s and the first Chevy badged will be 2015. My question is still why? GM is unable to develop their own new line of vans?
mumkin 02/07/14 04:11pm Class B - Camping Van Conversions
RE: New Small Chevy B potential

The HHR is even smaller... less useful both as a commercial van or a mini-B. BTW, I started a thread on the NV200 after I happened onto it back in November: http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27355873.cfm

RE: New Small Chevy B potential

When I hit this link, I immediately thought... that's a Nissan!! And the first paragraph told me that I was right. This is essentially a mini-van, but with a more boxy spacious rear area and only two seats. You would have fewer windows. When I reach the point that I want to downsize I had been looking at this as an option since it would fit into my parking garage. I really don't understand why Nissan is re-branding as Chevies or however you want to look at it?? Did I miss something. Is there a partnership between GM and Nissan??

RE: What Happened to Triple E RV?

The 25 foot Chevy cutaway van based Libero Class Almost-C still seems to be available for 2014. How much different is this model from the original Triple E Class C 24 footer? I wonder if they would custom build a Libero for a buyer on the Ford E450 or Chevy 4500 chassis for more ruggedness and to get the larger 55 or 57 gallon fuel tank?: http://www.leisurevans.com/libero/specifications.html#anchor Yes, the Libero is still available and no they no longer do any "build to order" units. LTV used to do many adjustments to customer requests back before they were purchased by Triple E... and before the high demand for their small Class C and Class B units on the Sprinters. I actually asked if they could put the GT house on the Chevy for me and they said no. I loved the idea of the fully enclosed and separately heated tanks... and the engine assisted water heater.
