Anyone else have any ideas?
Get an older Bigfoot-very light! Get a post-1988 1/2, as older ones were too wide for modern tailgate openings.

We are now looking seriously at the Sprinter class B+'s like the Navion. Not cheap but fits our bill.
I've had 4 Navions-50,000 miles-and like them. MB designed, engineered and built.

I would also wonder about trading just for the sake of fuel mileage. The Navions are nice "little" motorhomes but will one really save you money at the end of the day compared to what you have? Have you looked at the livability compared to the coach you already have?
