RE: Roadtrek 170 as a daily driver

I have owned a 190 and a 210 and am totally familiar with the answer concerning those models. Why not the 190? It is only 1'8" longer. Is it that and the mileage difference?

RE: Sterling RV/GWV 2015 Classic on Promaster

I would guess that it has an espar system for both hot water & heat. This isn't a permanent bed set-up... it is a make the bed and get in to sleep. LOL

RE: Sterling RV/GWV 2015 Classic on Promaster

Neverhappy... you should have kept that old Classic Supreme. LOL GWV was purchased by Sterling RV and has moved from Canada to Alabama. Many of the employees also made the move. This is a new floor plan on the longer Promaster. The one on the old website was their first attempt on the shorter platform. Thus far they are experimenting with the possibilities on this new choice for the US market. While this arrangement may not appeal, they are very open to making changes. What all the manufacturers seem to be doing with the Promaster is to try to come up with more affordable conversions. They are well aware that they need to get a new website, and one is supposedly in process.

Sterling RV/GWV 2015 Classic on Promaster

Lake Region RV has just put up a short video of the new 2015 Classic on the Promaster. You need to go down the page below the photos. 2015 Sterling Classic Fresh from the factory...

RE: 2014 L T V Libero

Considering a 2014 Libero. It has a 6.0 Chevy engine and I am wondering if that is adequate for this unit when the van fully loaded. I mean, will the unit do a lot of down shifting on grades when fresh water and gas tanks are full. We currently have a R T 190 Popular and it rarely "hunts". Just looking for a little more room. Also, would like any other comments from owners of these units. Thanking all responders in advance. I've certainly been happy with my Libero. While my gas tank is always half to full, I try to keep my other tanks as empty as possible. I go through the mountains in AZ - put it in tow/haul mode - and while I'm not the first to the top of the steepest, I'm also not the last.

RE: how long let b sit before starting

My 2004 Ford based GWV wouldn't start if it sat for a week. Ford insisted that there was nothing wrong with the battery and wouldn't cover it under the warranty. My current Chevy will start up with no problem even after sitting for a month. So YMMV... and few around with much experience with the Promaster. Perhaps on the Promaster Forum? Personally I would get a battery disconnect put directly on the battery. That is what I had to do with my Ford and it worked like a charm. It was one of these: battery disconnect switch

RE: Pleasure-Way ProMaster Lexor $98,788.00

I am surprised that the front seats do not swivel. I believe that Roadtrek and Winnie are using swivel seats. There is an aftermarket available if PW doesn't switch over..

RE: Floorplan like the Unity U24MB

You will not find anything similar in a Class B. The Unity is a Class C (LTV has it incorrectly labeled). I do believe that there are some cheaper manufacturers who have done a knock-off. So, you should try asking this question in that section.

RE: Fitted black out shades for Econolines?

Not all the Canadian rigs, as LTV uses good window coverings. But, these days, they don't produce any B's as their small C's are too popular for them to keep up with the orders.

RE: Fitted black out shades for Econolines?

Something like these? easy curtain

RE: Looking for Guidance/thoughts on a Class B.

Check out the Sportsmobile website. They help people sell their rigs or sell those they take in trade when buying a new rig from them. They are listed on the "Pre-owned" link in the upper right corner of the homepage. Sportsmobile They could also make changes for you to make the rig fit your wants and needs more closely.

RE: Front floor mats for 2013 PW Lexor?

I went through this with my Chevy too. For some reason, no one makes them. I bought the ones made by Chevy, but they are too small and not much use really.

RE: LTV Unity MB 2015.5 roof access

Since so few have been delivered so far, this would be a good question to ask the factory directly.

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

At least you have a good excuse for not working on the van. Your new living room is gorgeous. Next we watch the garage go up I guess.

RE: Pricing

With the 2015 models out, what is a reasonable percentage of the MSRP to expect to pay for a new 2014 model? Discounts depend on manufacturer, part of the country, and how much the dealers are allowed to change the "MSRP." There is no general answer to the question. There is a Sportsmobile dealer in Indiana. MB chassis,etc. In effect they make a unit to your specs. Decent prices with less fluff and more functionality. Worth a looksee. Regards, I think I would call them a manufacturer rather than a "dealer." Always nice to have one built just as you want it. And you avoid having to pay a dealer in the mix.

RE: MH Magazine review Winnebago Era 70 C

Pretty much a straight rip-off of the LTV Free Spirit SS... the first to use the slide option on the Sprinter in North America. LTV has so many orders for its small Class C vehicles that they have suspended production of their Sprinter Class B units for the foreseeable future. So, Winnebago will get their copy out at the right time.

RE: New Roadtrek 'Zion'-----promaster

I don't think Roadtrek even knows the price yet. They just presented the prototype at the show and you can hear what they said as to price (low 80s) in the video. I called Roadtrek and asked the questions that we had on the battery and they said that nothing is yet settled as to how many, what kind or where as yet... and/or what is standard and what are the options. (Oh... that Dynamax is a Class C, not a B anyway... so you might want to start a thread over there to discuss it)

RE: Which of these 2 TRAVATOs would you buy?

The majority of the posters on that board - even those who have had the usual issues - are happy once all is fixed. A couple people have had "lemons" and had them replaced. It seems pretty similar to the first year of the Sprinter roll out here in the US.

RE: Which of these 2 TRAVATOs would you buy?

Have any of you travato owners had the squealing brakes issue that is being discussed on the Promaster forums? If I was buying a 2015, I would want to 2015 platform...
