A sad goodbye......

I sold the Majestic 19G today. I loved the unit. I have to say better built than 90% of the other units on the road. EVEN after being used as a rental it was in better shape then most of the newer ones that are hardly used.

Bought it to replace my truck and camper and it was amazing. VERY comfortable and easy to drive.

Biggest issue for selling had nothing to do with the unit but how I wanted to use it. I wanted to use it for shooting pictures from and it was just too wide for where I wanted to go. The roads that I drive on and do U turns on and pull off to the shoulder on are not wide enough for the Majestic. Those mirrors are SOOO wide. I was always folding the mirrors in on back roads when I was shooting.

I did not want to sell it but last year I only had it out for two trips close to home. I think I only drove it 40 kilometers all last year. It was in to good of shape to let it sit in the driveway and not be used.

I listed it last year and had over 12,000 views of the on-line ads. Several dozen people looked at it and finally a couple flew in today and bought it. Hated to see it go as it was a great unit. Would buy another one tomorrow if my needs changed for how I use an RV.

As for the size 19' was amazing to drive and parking was a piece of cake. I had a couple people that test drove it who never backed up an RV before and it blew them away to back it up so easily. It fit in all the spots I wanted to camp with space left over.

So I am now down to the last White Turtle. Not as many luxuries but a lot narrower and easier to use for what I do.

This is my last Turtle


I wish the RV companies would get a hint about the desirability of a 19' class C. Have you seen what Cruise America is asking for used 19Gs nowadays?


Ditto on bring back the 19’ C!!!
My first C was a 1992 Tioga 18A and I want to go back to that size, hate the B’s in that size! Looks like my only option is a used C from a rental fleet. Come on manufacturers, give us what we want!!!

Well I may soon be a new member to this group. I put a (refundable) deposit on a 2018 Adventurer 19RD today. Will go to Country RV in Canada in a few weeks to close the deal if all looks good. So far, they have been very good to deal with. I’ve been looking for a class c under 20’ for a long time and this may be the one!

They tell me we will close the deal at the border so I can pay sales tax when I get home and register and avoid the Canadian sales tax, which sounds good, no use paying it twice.

I don’t believe they issue any kind of temporary tag so I will be tagless until I get home. My understanding is there is some grace period time that it is ok to be tagless as long as I have bill of sale.

any words of experience from ya’all on this endeavor would be greatly appreciated!

Hi guys,

We just pulled into the RV park in Paso Robles, CA for the night. I have a 2009 28A. Started up the rooftop AC and it ran fine. About half an hour later I turned the control knob to go from Max to Low cool setting. All of a sudden it shut off and will not go back on. I don't know if I tripped the breaker or if maybe the coils froze up as it's 99 here right now. Where is the breaker switch for the AC in this unit? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance!

did you mean to post this in the in the “buying a former class c rental” thread?
you may get more help by starting a new thread in the class c forum

While I can't help with the registration and tag dilemma I would like to know how it all works out,please come on back to the rental thread and and tell us how this purchase was accomplished and your experiences on this adventure.

That Adventurer 19RD looks like a really neat option with the rear dinette/bed. I know others like the Majestic 19G,it seems to be in high demand. I think that this configuration offers more room than the 19G.

It is to bad that the only really small RVs like these two are only offered as rentals. I think that if they would market these to the general public they would be a big seller,not everyone wants to go BIG.

It seems that this company mostly makes Truck Campers,I think they are missing a big Class C market by only making rental units.

Good luck on this and let us know how it all turned out.

Thanks IAMICHABOD! I picked the 19rd because the rear dinette has 270 deg views, this is the same layout as my original 1992 18A Tioga Montera, and we loved backing into a parking spot and enjoying the view. The 2017 E350 on the 19 RD has a V10 which is great for towing when needed and frig and cooking is propane which is great for boondocking. I will report back.

Hey:

I just joined the group; I going to buy a former rental Class C this fall.
Thanks so much to IAMICHABOD and everyone who contributes to this network.

Even though I'm a newbie, I wanted to share something folks might be interested in.

Today's Prime Day #1 at Amazon and I just wanted to alert everyone that the RENOGY 100 Watt Suitcase Solar Panel and Controller are on sale right now for $213.81. I've decided to commit to this as my first RV purchase!

Thanks to all.

The Canadian Adventurer class C is back in business. I see lots of new ones in Jasper especially. Most appear to be 20 to 24 feet. I know the company moved to the US and dropped the class C about ten years ago. Anyone know if they have moved back to Canada?

I found a website for the Canadian adventurers, now manufactured in Yakima, Washington.

I believe Adventurer LP is in Washington and still producing class c ‘s for the Canadian rental market. google Country RV and look at their used class c’s from the rental fleet. there are many 2017/2018 vintage. tap on tje brochure link and it shows Adventurer LP in Washington address

Well, you all have sold me on buying a Majestic 28A. Wife and I are headed to Kissimmee this coming Saturday to pick up our class C. We inspected it a week ago and had some things to address, they have been more than willing to make it right. Can't wait to enjoy the simplicty and function. I have my eye on a set of leveling jacks already! Going to add some nice options. Hoping to find a thread with mods people have done on the Majestics. Update you all after we pick her up, 200 mile drive home.

Thanks to all that have provided feedback, CA would pay for this positive feedback.
