Smile Down sizing

DW and I are down sizing. We are looking to trade for a Triple E GT 29 class B. We have only looked at the coach on the web, have not seen one or driven one. Anyone out there that is familiar with the company and this model coach, would appreciate the pros and con.

Triple E is a Canadian company with a good reputation for build quality.

The GT 29 is a class C rather than a B, at least in the current years models. Or maybe they call it a B+

These look almost identical to the Winnebago Aspect. Their 25' model has the same layout as our 26A. They might be a bit fancier though.

We are on our fifth MH since 2003. First one was a used 3 year old EEE Commander Class A. DW and I both believe it was the best unit we've owned from a quality point of view.

BTW, I think EEE is making a mistake in calling this a B+. It is clearly a C. No different than Jayco and Winnie models that are labelled C. Three of the Regency models have beds over the cab as well.

We've had diesel pushers and this time around decided to downsize to something small and compact and so we won't be dealing with towing. We plan on renting a vehicle if we need one depending on the circumstances. Have done that in the past and it worked very well.

Look at the Holiday Rambler Augusta and the Monaco Montclair units.
They are nicely appointed and are 25 feet and 29 feet. The HR is really identical to the Monaco. Worth a look if you are looking for a unit in that range.

We bought the Augusta 25 and the floorplan works for us.

I personally think the B+ designation is more confusing then helpful. As I remember reading a Winnebago classification sheet one time Class B's are primarily a converted cargo van where most of the van is kept intact. Class A's start with a chassis and motor and add everything else. Class C's are a blend and start with a motor and cab(and front wheels) and add everything else. A prime example of this is the Winnebago Rialta which took the cab and front wheel drive system from VW and built the rest. Winnebago classified this unit as C. Unfortunately many people and dealers think that unless it has a bed over the cab it can't be a C. It's more about how it is constructed than what it looks like. Just about all of B+ units fit Winnebago's definition of a C class.

Agreed. I think the marketing dept of EEE simply blew it. Some parks won't allow B+ units (they view them as van conversions) whereas C's are clearly not van conversions.
