Wh and Damon might have a great idea there.
Any more pics of it? It looks like an almost full size Cl A but it must not have much CCC left especially if it has a slide.
Hopefully Damon and WH can keep the cost in line, not like the overpriced sprinter package

jdsr, no one here is comparing a Mercedes automobile to a class A motor home. Obviously you don't know what a "Sprinter" is! It is a large delivery cargo van built by Freightliner, a division of Daimler-Benz and marketed by Freightliner and Dodge. Many class C's and class B's use this "Sprinter" chassis. Therefore, one is comparing a "Sprinter" motor home chassis to another motor home chassis. I was waiting for someone else to explain this to you, but they didn't, so I did! Best wishes, Bagman57.... PS: Good job with the pic Max!

Explore America, thank-you so much for the Avanti linx. Actually, I like the floor plan. It would definitely work for an active couple that loves to tavel and wants more space than what is offered in a 24' "Sprinter" based class C! Chuck/Bagman57

Looks a lot like a downsized version of the Rexhall that we haven't seen much about.

By the way what happened to our signatures? They don't seem to be posting.

the VT275 is a darn fine engine and 440 ft/lbs from a V6, diesel or not, is quite impressive.

Bob, I think the shape of the new Rexhall is even more aerodynamically shaped. Because the Rexhall has a more aero nose, the awning is recessed into the side wall, and it has less body seams. But, this innovation from Damon is a good thing and hopefully it will make the other motor home manufacturers open up their eyes and get creative! Bagman57.

CHUCK: That may be true, but the Damon is apparently "more" aerodynamic due to its lower, narrower profile. I can't comment about the additional "drag" the Damon may have because of the awning NOT being recessed like it is on the Rexhall. Having seen the Rexhall, I can tell you there is nothing "small" about it! ED

BOB: I THINK they are not "on" due to this thread originating in RV INDUSTRY NEWS forum. Signatures appear in "most" of the other forums. ED

Funny our first MH an 87 Alegro had a drop down bunk up front.

We also had a 93 Coranado which was an eye catcher back than. With a TBI 454.

Guess I down sized too soon to a class C. Should have waited a little longer for a short fuel efficant class A.

Bagman, your repl to me was "no one her is comparing a mh to a car. I respec disagree. If you read the post above thats what wazone2 said and I was ref to his post. And like I said I sat in a front diesel while it was running and "I" didnt like it.If this is your cup of tea then more power to ya but I just gave my opinion. Btw if I ever see one on a lot I will def look at it. Im not closed minded and who knows it could be the best thing since sliced bread. safe travels

My most humble apology jdsr, I went back to page one and there it was! I was certain that you mistook the "Sprinter" and got it mixed up with a car. It is a rare event when someone brings in a car when we are posting on a motor home forum. Once again, my mistake and I am sorry! Regards, Bagman57.

I'm a fulltimer, and "drop down bunks" just wouldn't work for me. Anyway, even at $4 per gallon, no more than most people drive their motorhomes in a year(6000 to 12000 miles), fuel is not that much of an expense, if you figure cost of the unit, depreciation, maintenance, taxes, insurance, etc. GIVE ME ROOM AND COMFORT!

Now, if you could remove depreciation and taxes, then we're talking about a savings!
