RE: New Product: Winnebago Paseo

The reason there are not more Transit van RVs is because the manufactures couldn't purchase them at a discount. Ford has been behind in their orders to their Fleet customers, so no incentive to sell to RV manufactures at a discount.

RE: New Product: Winnebago Paseo

JMO but The Ford ECO boost twin turbo V6 is one of the best engines made, and will leave a Sprinter in the dust in the mountains. For me personally it's the only Class B chassis/engine I would buy, and It's too bad that it took so long for the manufactures to to get some kind of small fleet deal from Ford. I admit I'm bias toward gas, and have been waiting to see a good quality B built on the Transit with the ECO Boost. The Sprinter offers a few more amenities, but the Transit is very close in that regard.

RE: expected discount on class B Sprinter?

I've always thought of Class C as being larger with a bed over the cab. So I'm only interested in Class B (not the Class C with the fiberglass shell on the cutaway chassis). So I edited (again) and removed B+. In case the original question has been lost now, it's "what type of discount can be expected for class B (not class B+ or C)?". Sorry for the confusion You are correct that a "B+" is built with a fiberglass shell. Size has nothing to do with what type/class an RV is, it's all about what type chassis it started as. However PW, and LTV do make quality small Class/type C RV's. I think you will find the answer I gave you about discounts will be what most people have reported on this, and other B forums. There's always a few exceptions though. Does it have to be a Sprinter, and how soon do you plan to buy? I only ask because there may soon be more manufactures (see the Winnebago Paseo post) building on the Ford Transit van, which having driven both, I feel is a better handling chassis. Ford offers a lot more service centers, and the Transit, being a gasser, eliminates the Diesels DEF hassles. Price will fall somewhere between the Travato, and the Sprinter.

RE: New Product: Winnebago Paseo

Hopefully Ford's production has caught up with the demand of their large fleet markets, and can now give the RV manufactures a good price on the vans. If so, I hope we see a Roadtrek, and PW model soon. The Paseo looks nice, and I like the look of the inside, but price seems high for what is a pretty basic B Van. I didn't see a macerator, or an inverter, just a basic converter charger. No under hood generator, so still stuck with the noisy Onan. Only option 100 watt solar. It is a gasser, and that's a plus for me. I can live with basic, but not $3000 + for a way outdated noisy Onan generator.

RE: expected discount on class B Sprinter?

You can't compare a Sprinter Class C (B+) built on a cut-away chassis to a Sprinter Class B. They are totally different RV's, different chassis, different construction, and different mark ups. Questions about MB Sprinter Class C's should be asked over in the C forum where you can get a better response from owners. On edit, I rewrote my post to just include MB Sprinters.

RE: expected discount on class B Sprinter?

LTV doesn't make Class B's, PW, and RT seem to be around 12 to 15% off MSRP, sometimes you can do better if a unit has been sitting on a lot for a while. Roadtrek will sometimes offer rebates on older models when the new ones come out. May do better with Winnabego.

RE: Trail- lite class b+ motorhome manual

Trail-Lite thought they could sell more if they attached a "B" to the name, probably worked, but also created a lot of confusion.

RE: Onan Micro Quiet 4000

If your RV is a BT Cruiser it's a Class C. Class B's do not use Onan 4000's. You might want to try the Class C forum.

RE: Trail- lite class b+ motorhome manual

A B+ is a small Class C. The Trail-Lite owners are all over in that forum.

RE: Bike Rack for 2" Hitch

Just thought I would pass this along, what people do with it is up to them. Federal fire safety Regs. state an RV must have an Emergency exit out the bedroom. (back of a Class B) So if the rear door window doesn't pop out, the rear door must be able to open from the inside. Many of the rear mounted racks, boxes, etc. don't allow the rear door to open. This is the reason the older Roadtrek 200's (no rear door) had a pop out window

RE: Class B Rally Question

Here's the problem. When people have other Rally's they will want to post them in the B forum too. None of the other forums allow Rally discussions, that's what the Rally forum is for. You weren't here back in the old days, so didn't see how things got out of control, and confusing. I created the Sticky, and if anyone wants to post info about their Rally, or Get-Together just send the info. to Admin and he will add it in the Sticky. If the Sticky link is devoid of info. then that's the fault of the organizers, and attendees.

RE: Class B Rally Question

The reason the sticky is there is so the Rally is discussed in the Rally thread not here. Admin will close this thread.

RE: Class B Rally Question

There is a "Rally" Sticky at the top of the Class B home page. It has all the info, and link to the thread in the Rally forum.

RE: HELP! Can I Have This Set-Up With A Class B ???

Our family is about to dive into the world of "Full Timers" and after a lot of discussion, we think that our best set up would be to have a Class B (approx 22') towing a travel trailer (17" - 23" range). We have been looking at Class B RV's in the 22' range like Gulf Stream B TOURING CRUISER and R-Vision TRAIL LITE. Basically models in the early 2000's are all we can currently afford and they all seem to have either the Vortec V-8 or Ford Titan V-10. So, my question before we start looking at purchasing is, will a Class B RV like the ones mentioned above pull a typical travel trailer around 23' long? Will it be able to pull up mountain highways like in Colorado and also handle the braking going down the mountains? Thanks for any input you can provide!!!! Those are both small Class C's. Many owners over on that forum.

RE: My B and a question?

They use to call it Class changed to Type several years ago. Even though they changed it, pretty much everyone kept using the term Class. It was discussed back then as to why RIVA changed, and several people thought that RIVA felt that Class was not "PC" enough. :h Go RVing is RIVA's consumer site. Has a little better definitions.

RE: My B and a question?

Here is how the RVIA describes a class B. The pictures sure look like this van! There is no mention of it starting as a van or a cutaway, whether in the class B or class C description. http://www.rvia.org/?esid=TypeBMHs This is from RIVA'S consumer site. Type B Motorhome "Commonly called van campers, Type B Motorhomes are built using automotive manufactured van or panel-truck shells. Van campers drive more like the family car, but offer the comforts and conveniences of home on the road." Type C Motorhome "Type C Motorhomes are built on an automotive van frame with a wider body section attached to the original cab section. Many Type C Motorhomes are easily recognizable by the over-the-cab area that is often an optional sleeping area. Amenities are similar to those in conventional motorhomes." Go RVing These are the definitions that RV.Net uses for its web site. I'm sure it will continue to be argued till the dead horse comes back to life. :)

RE: My B and a question?

Why all the discussion over letters of the alphabet? Why not just call it "looking good." As the former Moderator for this forum I will try and explain the reason. Mainly, it's to keep the two forums, the B and C from becoming intermingled. New owners sometimes, not in this case, don't know if they purchased a Class B, or Class C. Since a so called B+ can be 35' long with multiple slide outs, the letters are a way to keep the forums organized. You don't see Class B's posted in Class A, and the same goes for this forum. If I see a post about a Class C I will usually tell the person so they can post in the correct forum where they will find other similar RV's and get the best help. Contrary to what people sometimes think, it's not about disparaging a certain type, or class of RV, is just keeping posts in the correct forum. The problem in this post was a misinformed person, who didn't know the difference between a B, and a C making an incorrect comment. To the op, very cool looking Class B, and one to be proud of.

RE: My B and a question?

Sorry Naio but the pictures clearly show that it started as a van. It therefore fits the definition of a Class B. Side cut-outs and cab-over have nothing to do with the classification. This has been discussed to death before on this forum. Beautiful renovation work in any case. Alain X2

RE: Exterior Color and Inside Temperature...

Vans are like tin cans, and can get very hot after being driven on a highway for hours. The wheel wells get so hot you can't touch them. This heat has to go somewhere, and a lot of it well disapate into the van through the floor, sides, etc Experience people here have suggested getting AC, and that is my recommendation also, but you seem to know what's best for yourself, so good luck, and enjoy your travels.
