141K miles on our Sprinter diesel class B and it's still going strong. Most negative comments about Sprinters do not come from owners. Repair prices on all vehicles are high, we have had no major problems and few minor ones. A friend of ours just got an estimate of over $2000.00 to fix the fuel gauge on his Chevrolet pickup. $600 of that was just to remove the gas tank.

We would make exactly the same decision on buying a Sprinter Class B now as we made about 13 years ago. We have had excellent service from it.

That's good news, and always good to hear.

Thank you Asheguy. I have noticed the license plate in your signature over the years and wondered how you got along in your class B. I think I'm starting to understand.

My wife came up with that choice for our Class B license plate almost immediately. Class Bs certainly meet that description, but we have found the size of our Class B to be completely adequate. They are not for everyone though.

they all are high but some are higher than others. some depends on having our neighborhood mechanic be able to service it vs. taking it to the dealer.

I still would not buy a Sprinter based RV. If they come out with an electric model with a range of 200 miles I'd be most interested.

Just an update. We took the Era A out yesterday, toured it thoroughly, and ended up buying it. They put a lot of thought into this model, very few of the "lets put this in so we can point to it" frills.

We are having solar installed and the sofa unbolted so we can remove it and put it in our garage. I am hoping their service department doing the prep work and solar install lives up to their sales department. So far it has been a pleasant, straightforward experience with no surprises.

We pick it up in a week or so and head out on our first trip 3 weeks from now.

Dave
