RE: Class B Purchase Advice

I don't remember that, but very possible they made that statement, but I haven't heard anything about them recontinuing the Class B's. Roadtrek was/is dominating the B market, and LTV decided that small Class C's was their niche. Maybe Mumkin will see this and chime in, she's pretty up on what LTV is doing.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

Carbon build up in the Sprinters seems be caused by excessive idling, causing the ERG, DPF to get clogged. I don't think it's been a problem with normal driving. MB recommends a good drive after an idling period to eliminate the ERG and DPF fouling problem. Only time will tell if it becomes a problem with the under hood generators, and excessive idling. I have read where a diesel fuel system cleaner was recommended every 10K if used for prolonged idling. I'm sure this is all covered in more detail on the Sprinter forums.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

Does anybody know if the Sprinter engine has port injection or direct injection? Direct injection for both the 5cyl, and V6.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

From what I have read the Eco Boost 3.5 engine will all be dual injection, and the DI will be discontinued. Maybe 2017 Transit models, sooner I hope.

RE: Class B Purchase Advice

LTV makes quality Class C's, but they no longer make Class B's. The Unity is a Class C, and there are some owners over there.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

From what I have read it has both. 'The gen.2 ecoboost engines have both port injection and GDI systems (all cylinders)" I believe this is to eliminate the carbon build up.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

I watched a few Youtube videos about carbon-fouled intake valves in engines with direct injection and started scratching my head and humming that old Bruce Springsteen song "one step forward and two steps back". :) I'm kind of leaning towards the passively aspirated engine vs. the turbocharged model. I'm a pretty conservative driver and I've heard that repairs tend to be more frequent and more expensive on engines with turbochargers. I don't know how valid that is, but I've heard it quite a bit. The Transit Eco Boost is port injection, not direct injection. Carbon build up should not be problem. It will out perform the other vans in the mountains, and MPG is around 5 to 7 more than the Chevy Express. The right equipped Transit can tow 7,500 lbs. Even though this is from the UK, and some things don't apply to the US models, it is a good write up comparing the Transit to the Sprinter. Transit vs Sprinter

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

That believe that video is about the older direct injection Eco Boost engines. I haven't heard of carbon build up in the new twin turbo 3.5 Eco Boost, which are port injected.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

Have you driven a highly optioned Transit Van, I think you would be surprised how nice it is. Many people who have driven both the Sprinter, and Transit prefer the Transit. Most dealers don't highly option out the panel vans, so a windowed passenger van might be the best option to look at and test drive. Transit test drive

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

Vans in general have been used pretty hard, especially the panel vans. Might be hard to find a good one. A nice option might be to buy a new Transit Van and take it to Sports Mobile for the things you can't do your self.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

I have owned the Chevy Rt, which was a great van, and driven the Ford Transit. if I didn't need the larger tow capacity, which is a non issue for most Class Ber's, I would get the Transit V6. It's more comfortable to drive (jmo), quieter, and gets better MPG., also does better in the mountains because of the Eco Boost engine. There's no fiberglass roof to maintain, or leaks to worry about. As for the Sprinter, I don't like the price, or the higher service fees, and lack of repair centers concern me. Parts are often not in stock, and can sometimes take weeks to get. But mainly I don't want a diesel. I also don't like the Promaster, for reasons I will keep to myself so I don't offend any owners, and take this thread off topic.

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

To the op. If you plan on doing any mods, or replacing the front seats, make sure to talk to your insurance agent first. I'm pretty sure all the new vans (Chevys included) have airbags built into the seats, and are part of an integrated safety system. I know Roadtrek can't even recover them because this. I would also talk to the car dealer about the warranty being affected.

Ford Transit, with the Eco Boost.

RE: Macerator pumps--how to spot one?

I think most of the hose problems were with the older systems. Rt had a bad batch at one time. The biggest problem is (IMO) user error. Stuff getting dropped into the tank, and damaging the impeller, or running the pump dry. A macerator, and a gravity feed system would be a major plus for me.

RE: GTRV Conversions?

My mistake.

RE: GTRV Conversions?

I believe they were bought, or merged with Sterling Vans and moved to Alabama. They ran into financial problems and closed their doors, I think around June 2015. They have filed for Bankruptcy.

RE: New LTV model built on the Ford Transit chassis.

I think it's more a Tourer, than a camper. Maybe as an alternative to the more expensive Class B's
