RE: Northridge Ca to San Diego

My favorite will take you an extra 30 miles but it is well worth it. Take the 118 to the 210 toward Pasadena. When you pass the Rose Bowl start heading into the extreme right lane so you don't miss the tunnel to continue on the 210. Then take the 210 all the way to the 15 split to San Diego. This is a less traveled route, but it still is like molasses at rush hour. We usually leave the house after 9:30am. X4 Extra miles, shorter time.

RE: 5" or 7" GPS display

I have the 6 inch Garmin 2689 LMT for my B. Very satisfied with the features and size.

RE: MaxxAir cover on a van?

Putting on a Maxx Air cover is always a good idea, I use This One over my Fantastic Fan, I like its lower contour and it is made for high volume fans. I use the same Maxx Air model on my Pleasure-way. If I ever have the need to replace it, I think I'll go with Fantastic Fan brand noted by My Roadtrek in her comment above: "Watch this video from 'Fantastic Vent cover air flow demo.' and you may want to use their vent cover instead of some other brand that will restrict air flow.

RE: 2015 Coachhouse 24 B van Sprinter rv

Nah, I'm satisfied with my new Advanced RV. :) Here is a video presentation by Advanced RV of our B. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqX_ohsr4og The Coach House plan is a recycled plan with center beds that were popular a decade ago. It is actually a pretty functional plan in things I tried to achieve, but in order to have a separate shower like you have in the Arriva you kill 20% of your total interior space where a standard wet bathroom will use about 6% of the total space. To me that is too much of a sacrifice of space for a shower you would seldom use. Also Coach House uses "old school" technology meaning in order to effectively camp with your RV you would have to seek traditional campgrounds and at least an electrical hookup. Good job, Davydd and Mrs. Davydd! Beautiful rig, too!

RE: Bathroom door hanger

I have an over the door hanger, and had the same problem. I shimmed the hanger with wood and trimmed the edges with a utility knife.

RE: Sprinter 2500

We are looking for a Mercedes Sprinter Class B on a 2006 Mercedes short wheel base 2500. I know that Roadtrek made one, the SS Agile. Any one know if other builders made a Class B on the Sprinter 2500 chassis? I have a 2006(2007 build) Pleasure-way Plateau TS on the 2500 chassis that is, without dualies at the rear and around 21ft in length. Later models were built on 3500 chassis with dualies at around 22ft9ins. I have seen a few 2006/2007 PWs on the web. AL Hmmm. My 2006 PW Plateau TS on the 2500 chassis without dualies is 22' 9". I doubt that your measurement is correct unless my 2006(2007 build) PW Plateau TS has SHRUNK. It is listed at 21ft 11 ins!!! Good to know. I took the previous owners word for it. Thanks.

RE: GAS PRICES ?

Spring is just around the corner. We'll probably see prices rise a bit since Summer blends are more expensive to produce.

RE: Whats wrong with California State Parks

"... the parks are generally far away from urban areas with no public transportation going to them. Among the improvements "needed" are socer fields." Geez. They've completely missed the point. Lackwits.

RE: Stupid Pet Policies

Pets cannot be left unattended at any time and must remain on a leash. You may not leave your pet inside your RV if you leave the campground.. "...it seems pretty stupid, even by Florida standards, to consider a dog in a heated/air-conditioned RV as "unattended in a vehicle." I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure they mean "unattended" as in unattended by a human. A heater / air-conditioner will not be of much use should there be a fire, or if the dogs have a physical or medical emergency, etc. I support the policy.

ummm, Class Bs *are* camper vans. For reference, see this forum's title: Class B - Camping Van Conversions

RE: Class B - B+

I should have said feeble-minded since these people are fixated on a silly term and can't let it go. It seems to be their new life's mission to patrol the boards and make sure no one gets out of line. I can see them now, grumbling in their robes, blood vessels popping because someone on the Internet is wrong. Sigh... Seems to me the B owners are patiently trying to explain the differences of classes of motorhomes, a recurring exercise which has been repeated ad nauseam. Meanwhile, you're the one who is littering this conversation with insults directed at the commenters here. Your fixation with characterizations of the commenters here seem to be based on personal projection more than anything else.

RE: Class B - B+

People will call things what they want to. ... therefore, no need for categories, rig designations, etc.

RE: Class B - B+

Old people with too much time and grouchy attitudes... People will call things what they want to. It's not a religion, it's just campers. You're correct! Rv dot net should just do away with all the sub-categories under Recreational Vehicles because I really want owners of pop-ups advising me about the mechanics of my B; as well as having to sift through hundreds of posts and comments to find the ones that apply to my Class rig. /sarcasm

RE: Class B - B+

RIVA does not recognize a B+ as a Type of RV. It is a made up manufactures term for a small Class C. A Class B started out as a van, after that it doesn't matter what is done to it. A "Type" of RV is based on what the original chassis is, not what the body was altered to look like. This is RIVA's definition of a Type/ Class B. "Commonly called van campers, Type B Motorhomes are built using automotive manufactured van or panel-truck shells" This is the definition for a Class C. "Type C Motorhomes are built on an automotive van frame with a wider body section attached to the original cab section." Also called a cut-away chassis. Some manufactures call their 35' 3 slide Type/Class C a B+. So you see size is irrelevant to these manufactures, they consider anything without a cab over sleeper a B+. Now I know some of you don't want to accept RIVA's (who sets the standards for the RV industry) definitions, and that's fine as it always seems to get people talking which is what a forum is for. Ref. RIVA's consumer site The B Forum needs to have this statement cemented to the top of the forum. It would save a ton of bandwidth given this conversation / debate recurs every couple of weeks and is beyond tiresome.

RE: Proper gear

Based on another post of hers, it looks like she has a 2010 Pleasureway on a Chevy chassis.

RE: Quartzsite snowbirds not here..Update They have arrived.

I intend to arrive on Thursday for an annual Quartzsite rally hosted by a chapter of one of national organizations of which I am a member. Although I'm retired now (Yay me!) I won't be staying beyond the weekend. The rally is the only reason I go to Quartzsite. Through these boards I've learned that Yuma is the new Quartzsite in terms of Big Tent and vendors. Not sure the reason(s).
