Great report Wincrasher

Just for kicks I was looking up late model VW. Eurovan campers. Wow those things are big money for their age and what little you get.

The Travato is very attractive.

Thanks.

I know with the Mercedes, the bare van is around $72k - more if you get the extra electronic gizmos. Don't know about the VW, but I imagine it's around $50-$60k.

The Promaster is somewhere between $25k and $30k.

So there you go - one reason the much lower price. The cabinetry and the finishes are another. No hardwoods and no corian or granite. The appliances are the same though.

Of course you have to go thru the options list to get them ready for RV conversion - it's not just a bare, base cargo van.

Go thru the options list and you can get close - easily into the $60's but some things, like all the flush windows, are not listed as far as I can tell. Didn't see the Nav and other electronics either.

I know what the Airstream people told me and there are options packages on those and the Leisure Travel vans that don't align with the MB packages on the cargo van build site.

Nothing - it is what it is - 110v only, 4 gallons. You have to run the generator 20 mins to heat the water, or plug in at a campground. It is a downside. I think I can live with it for my usage for this vehicle.
