Where would you get service or warranty work done on this?

According to their website, they have contracted with over 120 independent service providers nationwide for service and warranty work.

Here is their service locator:

Nexus Class A

Looks nice. Wheelbase looked a bit short with the overhang. Nice job, overall. Nice size and base price point. Will probably go over $200k with reasonable options.

Sure hope they didn't use those awful problem-prone Shwintek slides....

Toured it Today in Tampa

Just did a walk-thru at the Tampa RV Show.

I was very impressed!

The design is excellent, the ceiling height seems a bit taller than usual RV's, build-quality was solid.

Do have plans for a 40' or 45 tag?

In your opinion, fully loaded and pulling a toad, is the motorhome adequately powered with the Cummins 360?

For a 35-foot coach with a GVWR of 28,000 lbs.? ...it would definitely meet my needs satisfactorily. That's just for me, though.

To give an example, I routinely had my Meridian loaded to the max and which had a CAT C7 350 hp with about the exact same weight and length of the Bentley and I was passing semis just fine on the mountain passes out west when pulling a toad.

Do you know what torque your Cat C7 engine had?

I believe 860 ft lbs. I have to believe the Cummins in the Bentley would have much better torque. I really don't think it will feel sluggish at all.

I guess that's the info that needs to be found. I believe the engine in the Bentley is the B series Cummins diesel.

It would be interesting to know what torque the engine in the Bentley has.

Jim, you know, I bet you're right. At first, I thought I remember reading somewhere that the Nexus Bentley having a Cummins ISL. An ISL will have more than 1,000 lbs of torque.

However, now that I search around a bit, it does look as if it actually has the ISB6.7 which only has 800 lbs of torque. It is probably this engine --> click

And now that I think about it more, whey would they put an ISL in an entry level diesel pusher?

800 lbs. is still adequate but but not as hefty as many would probably desire. Still okay for me, though as I'm in no hurry and dislike passing semis on the grades anyway as they usually pass me back on the other side. I usually keep it to nothing over 60 MPH for fuel economy and the majority of trucks seem to be going just over 60.

I agree that 800 lbs is probably adequate, although it might be a little anemic in extreme mountains climbs.

I wonder if they are going to have a display at the Pomona show this fall. I'm working that show and would like to see one. Almost all entry level DPs have the 6.7 ltr ISB. Better than the Ford V10. Just keep your toad light.

It appears that they'll be there but since it states "Come see Nexus RV Class C and Class B+ Motorhomes at the show and buy Factory Direct", I wonder if they'll bring a Bentley?

California RV Show - NeXus RV

I suppose you could contact them to find out.



ETA: oops, nevermind ...that's for 2014. Who knows, they may in fact bring a Bentley for the Fall 2015 show.
