Midwest Automotive Designs?

Anyone know much about this company?

in a previous post I asked about the LVL Unity or the Interstate.

one of the dealers recommended this coach maker. I had not heard of them but the specs look promising.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have a 2015 Midwest which I bought used a year and a half ago. It had 22,000 miles on it and now has 45,000. I have added 600 amp hours of lithium which is fantastic. It is very well made, much attentio to detail no fit me finish.

Midwest Class B

Hello All,

I just joined the forum as an RV newbie. I am getting ready to purchase our first RV, and after lots and lots of research, have narrowed the decision down to a Class B. Looking into Pleasure Way, Winnebago Era, LTV, etc.. I have come down to either the Airstream Interstate Lounge, or Midwest Weekender.

Does anyone have any info as to how/why one is better than the other? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm assuming that on the road, they'd both be quite comfy (leather seats, massage and heated seats, etc..). My question is more for the actual RVing aspect of things... boondocking for a few days, etc.

Does 1 van have something over the next? I'm looking to get a 4x4, tankless water, solar/lithium, full navi + cameras + tech package, multi-plex wiring.

Thank you all in advance for your help!!

P.

My thinking is the Midwest and most of the others are not made forrought country. I also have an FJ Toyota with an auto home roof top tent that can pretty much go anywhere. But the sprinters are adept at getting to some great places with clearance being the biggest hurdle. And if you stick 5 tons you indeed have a problem.

Ben all over the map on this

We have been around this at least a couple of times.

I called the Midwest factory and got to talk to the guy that runs the class B stuff for them. Fantastic guy. If you want to know about MAD B's call him. It was really good to talk to someone that has true conviction in what he is selling and delivering. And I am talking more than product - he is delivering a lifestyle.

There is a Freedom package that is coming that is all electric. FANTASTIC. No propane generator or tank. Big Lith batteries, 2nd Alt and 30 hours of run time. Very attractive.

The things that I like about MAD B and a game changer for us is the 12v heater and AC. Going down the road no issue. In the Interstate you have to have the propane on and running the generator. I'm not really comfortable with that.

Interstate - lots of dealers and service centers, has all the MB options, and the resell value is much better. Not sure which warrantee is better yet.

At the end of the day is there really a bad choice here? Pick configs and have at it with pricing.

The down the road ac is great. I think they know how to build quality!

Very happy with ours thus far. Can anyone tell me what type of batteries are in this coach? Trying to ensure my inverter is set right without having to pull the covers off the battery panel. Thanks.

Likely the only way to know is pull the cover. Very easy. I put in after original 600 amp hours of lithium which is great!
