Being listed as $69K at Terry Frazer's.
Cheaper than the Winnebago Trend, also on the Ram Promaster chassis.

Saw a couple from Lazydays at the Ft Myers RV show today. VERY nice. I liked the Winnebago/Itasca but I loved the Rev.

What did you think of the cabinetry quality? First reports out there say it's not the best. Not as good as Winnebago's. And it has a rubber roof...

Ram ProMaster.

Hi everone, maybe it doesn't matter... but Ram ProMaster chassis are a joint venture between Fiat - Citroen - Peugeot and are very popular in Europe.
Unfortunately, its front wheel drive, so towing capability is significantly compromised.
For the time being I'll stick with my F-450 V10 Itasca.

I saw them at the show as well and they looked good at first (from the rear) but then I notice the front wheel drive, 2k towing capacity and the single rear wheel.
The finishes were not as good as Winni as mentioned and they they had a show price of 76k.

I really like the sprinter style dual twin bed floorplan in the REV vs the Trend/Viva. And both of those motorhomes have the single rear wheel (I think?) and the lowered towing capacity as well. These units strike me more as entry-level-sprinter-style coaches rather than a traditional C. You would have to go into it knowing you're either going to be towing nothing or something awfully small. The mobility of these units, and the gas mileage (reportedly 16-18 mpg from Trend/Viva owners in other threads) makes up for the lack of towing for some I think. I thought the finishes in the Rev were classier and seemed a bit more solid then Winnie. I am interested in this style unit but actually thought that the Trend/Viva twins were a bit under Winnebago's usual quality. Not comparing apples to oranges here either as my wife and I are looking to downsize into either a travel trailer or a small class c so we've been shopping the Minnie Winnie / Spirit and Winnie Towables as well. My .02. I thought the Rev was a bit nicer and more thoughtfully laid out if one was inclined to go with something like this.

What's the drawback to the single rear tires? I know that it's uncommon on standard C's but, I dont know enough to understand why it would impact this particular RV.

x2. That huge plastic bumper really makes the front look cheap,and I don't like the look of the headlights. Would take me awhile to come around to it.
