Looking at an R-Vision Trail-Lite Town and Country Touring Sedan B+.

We can not hardly anything on these. Can someone jump in with some feedback on what to watch out for, any leaking issues, construction problems, and over all issues on these.

Or if any one knows of a decent one for sale, please let me know.

B-Plus,
Best of luck to you. Have you decided on what brand and/or floorplan you will be looking for? We enjoy ours so much that we are afraid to look for a replacement. We are sure there are more of them out there; but don't know what we would change. We have not used the stove. We do use the micro-wave. The bathroom is not too large nor too small. The Chevy has enough power, has not had any problems in 57k miles and have an overall 11.9 MPG.

Hello Gene,
Long time. Not really sure if I relly want to get rid of either. I Purchased the B-PLUS new in 2003 and used it for a daily driver until 2007 I purchased a new Roadtrek 170 which I use as a daily driver now.Even though I have 6 other vehicles. I bought it strictly as a bathroom on wheels. In the Roadtrek I have never had the fridge, microwave, or stove on.
We use the B-PLUS just for a few trips a year.Its a shame because I just finished redoing the vinyl graphics in gold paint.
I would like to get one in between size that we can use for trips plus daily driver. The Roadtrek 170 is too small for two people for trips.at the time I only wanted a daily driver for the bathroom.
I have been looking at the Travato 59K model with the twin beds,but after having chevys and not any problems I am leery of the Fiat /Dodge Promaster chassis.
In the last few years I have been cutting back on my internet usage, too many forumsI have this one, a Corvette one , a Jeep one and a 4x4 one.
You can go to my Facebook page (Dario popalardo) and see my other vehicles. Wife told me to thin my heard down,LOL.
Take care Gene.
Ps
Only thing holding me back is it's hard trying to get rid of two rvs.
Real hassle!!!!

BPlus - Just by chance, I checked on what is going on this website and noticed that you had submitted a posting. You have an interesting story on why you have a couple of motorhomes. Those are neat picture of both of yours on your signature profile.

We too use the RV when going to family picnic's, State Fairs, Outdoor concerts etc. The bathroom in ours gets prestine care and cleanliness. We also still attend Motorcycle rallies in several States. Although, we could use the location bathrooms, we take the RV for that reason. The motorcycles catches a ride in a small fiberglass trailer.

Got the B+ out of heated storage after two years about two weeks ago. New battery, new generator carb, antifreeze and temp sender all needed. Plan on a 2-3 day trip before putting back in storage for winter. No use last summer due to both of us having surgeries. Will move to new storage facility, this fall closer to where we summer, with in and out privileges.

I had a fuel shut off installed for the generator so I can run the carb dry and fog the intake like we did our boats for 25 years. Seafoam did not keep the carb from gumming up while in storage.

What chassis is your Model 213 sitting on? The reason I ask is our Chevy 211-S sits in a metal shed when not used from about late September to middle May and so far has not been a problem. Fires right up. Chassis battery is new in November 2010 and house battery on October 2004. However, the house battery had to be replaced this year. The generator does not get much use, but it is run until the carb is dry.
