Class B with cab over bunk and slide

As the title says we would consider a B with these features. Any recommendations on them?

We would like to be able to drive 7 at times and sleep 4

Touché. Actually I was serious, there are one B's that make this claim and get a lot better mileage. The usual use would be 2-4 people for short trips.

Older Airstream 190 B Vans - and the Falcon line and few others had a cab over bed and a jackknife couch bed. Ours was a 1991 model Airstream. Not sure when that model was dropped or if any are being made now. We loved ours for well over 100k miles.

Very few B's will have a cab over. Might want to look at some of the B+ units on the Sprinter chassis.

We had a 1988 Okanagan Type B MH. Airstream bought the Okanagan brand and produced them under their name for a few years.

Yes the new one is pretty - but old one was really functional. Will always have find memories.

Gulf Stream vista cruiser claims to be a b but I guess b+ might be a better term with the cab over bunk.
