Hi All,

We just finished our 4th season as empty nesters camping in our ‘05 Casita 17” FD travel trailer. Nearly 200 wonderful nights later, we are wondering about adding a small used motorhome. After retirement in 3 years, we might think about a small Class C 25’ or under. Until then, we would like to try a used Class B motorhome. We are fans of the Winnebago Travato 59K, but they have only been out a few years and used prices are general 60K and up. Are there other Class Bs with the twin bed layout? A bathroom is a must as well.

Thanks,

Dean

Take a look at a used Pleasure Way Class B, they are well made and are quite reasonable if you look for one about 10 years old or so. Earlier ones are on a Dodge chassis which we used to own and the newer ones (about 2004 and up) are on the Ford chassis. Length is about 21 ft if I remember correctly. For something a little bigger, you might consider a small Class C in the 23 ft range like a used Coach House, say a 2005 model. That would be about $25K, maybe a little more if it was low mileage and in perfect shape.

A friend bought a Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5210 with the 2 couch/beds (can also be had with a single couch/bed and dinette). Very compact but seems big inside for the size. Has full dry bath. Nice kitchen and big fridge. Comes pretty well equip with everything. He got it after haggling for under 50K with all the options that were available.

I bought a Hymer Sunlight Van One 2018 with 18K miles in August. Price was $40K from camping world. It has two single beds or makes a queen size. Hymer has gotten a lot of bad publicity but mine seems like a good one and we are pleased with it.
We thought it would make a good starter unit so we could figure out what we really want based upon how we use it in the next few years. It took me about 2 years to find a deal on one. I had driven a couple but the price was more then I wanted to pay. ( I tell people look up the word cheap in the dictionary and you see my picture)

Sportsmobile is a custom van upfitter who offers twin bed options - it's always worth a search for that name

Hi Islandman,

Agreed the Pleasureway is a fine small motorhome. We like the Pursuit that they manufactured from 2013 to 2015; however, it is a small Class C. After further research, I think the Pleasureway Excel TD has twin beds. The Excel TS might work as well in terms of being a flexible floor plan that could be used in a twin format.

Love Coach House! Even used they are pricey, but owning a Casita, I am a fan of their 1 piece molded fiberglass shell.

Thanks,

Dean

Hi ItsyRV,

I like the floor plan in the BT Cruiser 5210. It is a sweet small Class C. We are leaning toward a used Class B first with a slightly larger, but small Class C in a few years.

Thx,

Dean

Hi hoosiermark,

Hmm, I was not familiar with the Hymer Sunlight Van One. It is similar to the Winnebago Travato 59K. Nice!

Thx,

Dean

P.S. - I used to work in Batesville, IN!

Hi lucy6194,

The Winnebago Views/Navions are sweet small Class Cs!!! Your twin bed model is my favorite floor plan!

Thx,

Dean
