RE: Asking for a friend really

Leisure Travel RVs seem to be well built. Have you looked at the class C models made by Winnebago and Tiffin built on Sprinter Chassis? Good luck in your search.

RE: Got the bugs off...

Clothes dryer softener sheets work very well in getting rid of the splattered bugs.

Not really. It's just like any other vehicle, but bigger. And congratulations.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

From a 20 year class b owner - i like it. but how many feet long is it? Soes it have propane? i skimmed the video & may have missed that. Otherwise how would it be heated while boondocking. It seems luxurious. I believe that unit is about 27' long. I'm assuming since it is built in northern Europe it must have adequate heating, and also a cooling system for those that head south. I did see in the video some heating registers that lets air from the house to the outside storage areas.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

Nice but too small. Having spent seven month in the desert in a 39 ft interior Mh I want larger. Have to agree. Life's too short to tie up that much money in something one can't enjoy. It's all relative. We owned a 40' DP that served its purpose when we had it but eventually traded down in size to a 26' Winnebago Navion on a Mercedes chassis when our travels changed, and we have no regrets. And in case you haven't priced new motorhomes lately, $125K doesn't buy much nowadays.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

These are almost identical. Dealers cannot keep them in stock in the USA. We have a 6 month backlog on orders. Doug Although Leisure Vans make nice products they are not in the same league as that German model. Have YOU really looked at a Leisure and been in one?????? Leisure uses Mercedes Chassis and I do not recognize the German RV chassis. Except for some cosmetic differences, I do not see any real difference. Doug I have been inside of them and I like them a lot. We own a 2019 Winnebago Navion with the Mercedes chassis. We may have considered a Leisure Wonder had we seen one but I don't think those models were out at the time we made our purchase. BTW, if you sell Leisure RVs you should know Leisure is using the Ford chassis in the 2021 Wonder models. I believe the German RV uses a Fiat chassis but I'm not 100% sure. And as much as you insist on saying you don't see much difference between a Leisure unit and that German unit I beg to differ. That German RV is far more luxurious and has a much better finish than anything this side of the pond at that price point.

$125,000 USD or 125,000 marks? They sell for 113,000 Euros, which is about $125K USD.

Too bad this coach isn't sold in the US, I would buy it in a heartbeat. This small coach seems well designed, very well made and pleasant to look at. Carthago chic c line i5 9 XL LE

RE: Few questions from the future RV-er

Get a small Class C Winnebago on a Ford chassis. Stay away from Thor products.

RE: Roadtrek class B

There are a couple units advertised by dealers for the same price in the RV Trader with about 20,000 less miles.

RE: Rest Areas in Az, CA

All California rest stops are closed. As of when? Like I said in my earlier post, I was in CA about 2 weeks ago and the rest stops were open to the public along I-40.

RE: Are the $25K lithium battery systems worth their cost?

How big are these battery packs. Capacity wise and dimension wise. I found this info at a Winnebago Travato dealer. The Travato offers the Volta Pure 3 System. "Under 200 lbs. the three-module automotive-grade energy pack provides 8,700 Whrs. Watertight and durable, the steel housing is the safest in the market. Travato's dedicated 58V alternator is 2x as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris."

Are the $25K lithium battery systems worth their cost?

I noticed several Class B manufacturers are offering as an upgrade lithium battery systems such as Volta and other brands costing in the neighborhood of $25K or more. Based on what I have learned, the coach manufacturers get rid of the generator, add a second alternator to the coach engine, add some solar panels, 2,000 or 3,000 watt inverter and of course the lithium battery pack. If I'm not mistaken, in order to run the AC using the batteries, a 10K or 11K BTU unit is used. Ostensibly, you should be able to run the AC for a few hours before the battery pack is discharged. Taking the high cost under consideration, do any of you see the advantage of ditching the generator and switching to this type of system? From what I gather, if you're stationary and the batteries need to be charged you must run your coach engine 2 to 3 hours to charge the batteries. Personally, I don't see any advantage by doing this. For years, I have managed to dry camp for days using 2 lead-acid batteries, 200 watts or less of solar panels and running the generator about an hour or less every day in the evening.

RE: Dish/Direct TV is going Bye Bye Millions soon to Disconnect

For how long has timmac been telling us about the pending demise of satellite TV? 10 years? As I mentioned before, I don't see satellite TV disappearing any time soon. Funny how timmac only mentions the TV satellite industry but not the cable industry when he says new technologies are going to put them out of business. I'm thinking he must be a disgruntled worker that was fired by one or both of the satellite companies.

RE: Firearms in Calf.

It didn't take very long for this thread to turn into another California bashing by the California haters in this forum. If there is a thread that should be closed for legitimate reasons, this is it. To the OP, ignore the know-nothings that spout nonsense and visit official state websites or contact law enforcement agencies for accurate information.

RE: Thor Axis/Vegas

I looked at them when I was looking to downsize. I think they are decent value if you can live with the mediocre quality.
