Congratulations. That's the type I want also!

One word of caution: You should whiteout the license plate when posting pcitures as bad guys could trace it back to where you live.

Looked at the 70A

We had the opportunity to walk through the ERA 70A a few days ago. As anticipated, we really did not like the floor plan. The configuration really reduces the amount of natural light you get as several of the windows are totally blocked by cabinets and the refrigerator. The rear beds are good for 1 thing-BEDS. We use our rear electric couch as a lounge area during the day and a fairly comfortable bed at night. It seems that to have the stationary, full time beds really reduces the options/usability of the rear area of the "A". I can honestly say that if, when we bought our 70X ERA, the 70A was our only choice, we would be driving a different brand of class B. Just one husband and wife opinion, so you'll need to judge it for yourself!!!

I agree. The 70x has an open feel that makes it a "touring" vehicle as well as an RV. I'm not sure which part I like best but there is something about the 70x that makes me look forward to driving it. We bought our ERA last April from Lichtsinn motors as well and promptly took a Florida to Arkansas trip with 7 friends & relatives all able to sit comfortably,something not possible with the 70a. Then I removed the two second row seats and just the wife and I took a trip to the Rockies and camped a week. IMHO if you just want a camper then the ERA may not be your best choice. But If you want both a camper & touring coach (even for day trips) this may fit your needs.

How hard is it to check the air pressure/add air? I heard they are improved for 2012.

The rear inside dual is still a pain in the neck. I don't know what they would have done to make it easier, however, if the did modify it----they better do mod #2!!!!. I bought one of the angle air pressure nozzles/ gauge and it works with a bit of work IF I remove the rear chrome wheel cover.
Still, I do manage to keep the air at the proper pressure and luv everything about our ERA 70X.
If it becomes too much hassle, a good tire monitoring system will elevate the time and frustration as the tires do keep really constant air pressure. Nitrogen tire fill is another answer to having constant tire pressure so there are many ways to effectively live with the air pressure frustration!

I just re-read you're post and it came to mind that although I have a 2012 ERA, my Sprinter chassis is a 2011 so perhaps there is a air pressure valve modification that I am unaware of on the 2012 chassis.

Not sure I understand, couldn't they just get your plate number as your go down the road?

Also I don't know why we don't use our real names here?

Please explain.

Our Allegro Bus was a 2005 which we bought new. It had 28,000 miles on it and was absolutely like new inside and out when we sold it to the new owner. They luv it and have used it extensively during 2012.
