RE: Thinking of a new class C

Navion iQ and View Profile no longer appear in the 2015 Winnebago line-up. Have they stopped making them?

RE: Winnebago ERA 70C

Just looking at the Winnebago website, it looks to me as pretty much a rip off copy of the Leisure Travel Free Spirit SS who were the first to put a slide here in North America in 2013. Leisure Travel Free Spirit SS Copied right down to the MSRP if this one is really listed at $122K (Winnebago site says it should 119K). But paying that for a Winnebago versus a Leisure Travel would be a major waste of money. Top quality RV construction and attention to detail versus a big manufacturer factory line churn em out.

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

Butt Template? You should have video-ed that for us!! LOL I had been wondering what was going on over there with you. Now that it is all legal, are you going to keep it or sell it?

RE: If you're jonesing for a red Travato, here are the pics:

It's on their website. I've always liked red, but I would never buy a vehicle of that color. I think it looks super and would admire it if I saw it... why not? It looks a helluva lot better than all that ugly swirly******that most RV builders seem obsessed with...

RE: Six months full-timing in the Winnebago Travato

My original text said "Class A/B+/B, depending who you ask", but I decided to get off the fence - perhaps I came down on the wrong side :). I was staggered by the ambiguity and uncertainty of all the dealers we spoke to about the Via! The B+ designation has been nothing but a confusing mess to most and unnecessary IMHO. But oddly, I have never seen or heard anyone call the Via/Reyo anything but an A... which is what Winnebago calls them. The B/B+ confusion comes in with the iQ/Profile, which it seems that they have stopped producing? Or at least it is no longer on the 2015 product list. RVIA used it in its photos as an example of a Class C, but since it is a View/Navion without a bed over the cab, some want to call it a B+ when it is really a C- But... off to read you blog and check out the changes so far for the 2015 models. :C

RE: Unity 24

I also considered the GT24 when I was negotiating on my Libero, but decided that I didn't want a slide. There are just a few Unity owners in the C section here. Another place to find a number of owners is on this forum for Sprinters: Sprinter LTV group

RE: Unity 24

The California dealer is Holland RV in San Marcos. You would have to check and see if or when they might have one to see. They sell so quickly that dealers rarely have them on the lot. Purchasers normally have to put in a special order and wait 6-9 months to get one.

RE: Looking for something unique?

Did I see two (2) TVs in that rig??!! If so ... wow ... that is really a feature way back then. My parent's early 80's Monacos both had two TVs... one in the bedroom and one in the front over the dinette from the factory... and they added a third between the driver and passenger seat that sat on top of 2 VCRs. My mother did love her TV. :C

RE: Would you "do" a cassette toilet?

I really wish that when the subject of toilets or black tanks comes up, that those with the idea to******in a bucket or trash bag would just keep quiet. It ALWAYS comes up. We get it - it's a cheap solution. But it's disgusting and fraught with potential problems. The original question was about cassette toilets. If you can't address the question, then don't post. I'm not quite sure why you are so upset. For those who don't want a black tank, this is the third option that not everyone may be familiar with. Though I would avoid regular trash bags and use a wag-bag type system.

RE: Leisure Travel Vans, need second opinion before purchase.

x3 Small companies can carry on for a long time by focusing on a particular market. Like Sportsmobile that caters mostly to off-roaders and those that don't want unnecessary luxury.

RE: Ultimate mini-camper

LOL... I'm thinkin' we should go back to the idea of removing the vote from males and just let us women decide. But perhaps a dangerous suggestion on a board dominated by men. :B

RE: Euro slideout

I think that design would be a big hit here in the states. Slideouts on Ducatos common in Australia. Trakka here makes a rear slide for a Class B+ http://www.australianmotorhomes.com.au/SiteFiles/australianmotorhomescomau/umh/3707U/gallery/Sunliner_Motorhome_02.jpg Except that this one is a Class C. Slides on a true B are pretty rare.

RE: Euro slideout

It appears that the downside is the same as it is in the LTV Free Spirit, which was the first to use a full slide like this in a B for the US market. (GWV had earlier, but smaller slides on standard Ford and Dodge vans) The slide has to be out to use the bed which does kill one's ability to be stealthy. The bed in this Promaster looks even narrower... but that may be an illusion from the angle.

RE: We Americans are spoiled!

I love these teeny campers and posted a thread before: Ultimate Mini Campers

RE: Want a Mercedes but not a Sprinter?

Not that different from what GTRV has been doing in the US and Canada for a few years. They do it on a Toyota Sienna or Dodge Caravan: GTRV mini-van conversions MB's is certainly fancier... and likely pricier.

RE: Pleasureway Factory tour

The skylight should help with the lack of windows. I wouldn't really find that an issue to be honest. I'm wondering how they managed the Murphy style bed with no slide. And there still appears to be plenty of area to walk around it. I guess it's a sideways MB whereas the other manufacturers who have used it drop it head to foot.

RE: Viva-Trend Yahoo group

Mods, hope this is OK. I just created a Yahoo Group for Viva-Trend owners and for those who are interested. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Viva-Trend/info Why not expand your group to any and all Promaster RV conversions... both B's and C's? Hopefully you can become the "go-to" group like the large and successful Skinny Winnie View/Navion group that has become the place to find experts on Sprinters.

RE: Winnebago Trend - First Drive Impressions

decent mileage (twice that of any existing gas C or small A) Not quite true. On this thread the mileage was reported as 14-16. My Chevy based C which is a foot longer has averaged 12.8 in the three years that I have driven it. So while better, certainly not twice as much.

RE: Pleasureway Factory tour

Did you ask them about the Transit? Was it just the stock answer that everyone is giving that "it isn't out yet."

RE: To "B" or not to "B"
