Class B RV's

Hello all, I am retired Air Force from Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue Nebraska, it was to expensive to move so I stayed in Nebraska() I go by PillowC130, I have seen the world, now I want to see America, I am looking to purchase a Class B RV, but I am confused on what to purchase, I like the Thor Tellaro 20LT, but its on the Ram Promaster Chassis and has front wheel drive(?), I also like the Coachman Beyond 22RB on the Ford Transit Chassis, My son is going to travel with me plus my 2 dogs. I cant find any good reviews on the front wheel drive Ram. Any guidance or advice would be appreciated. Blessings and safe RVing to all.

I had a 2017 winnebago paseo on the ford chassis I was very happy with the ride and the performance of the 3.5 ecoboost engine . If you can drive some different units back to back you can really feel the difference in engines and ride. 14 to 16 mpg . The class b or b+ marketplace has gone crazy. We started looking for a bigger class b+ or class c with out the over hang and ended up with a class A ? Good luck

My input is not knowing any more than you provided, age and size of son, what type of camping /travel will you be doing, is to NOT write off a small C class in your search. C’s typically have better bathrooms, better sleeping arrangements, more storage, more tank capacities.

Any how, good luck with your search, and have many happy times with your son.

Other forums to check would be Forest River owners forum for Transit chassis(https://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f254/) and Coachmen motorhome(https://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f230/). For the promaster Tellaro the forum is https://www.thorforums.com/forums/f43/.
Good luck with your search

I'm on my second class B on the Promaster. I prefer it over the Transit and the sprinter, because it's 4 inches wider which makes a huge difference in spaciousness of the van. However, it is also 4 inches shorter so if you're a tall person (over 6'2"), it may not be best for you. It also has a much lower step in height. The acceleration and ride are decent and it has the tightest turning radius. It's not as technologically advanced as the others, but it's much cheaper to buy and to maintain. Gas mileage on the Tellaro is likely in the 16-17mpg range. It's just enough size to fit everything you want while still fitting into a parking spot. I think you'd be satisfied with the Ram platform.
