Grech RV?

We are looking to replace our PleasureWay, and want something with more seatbelts. Our PleasureWay had 5, and so far I’ve only found the Grech RV Touring Edition, which has 9! Their website says they’ve been in business 37 years, but they are West Coast based so I hadn’t heard of them. They seem to sell primarily through the Campers Inn chain. They are pricey (what isn’t these days?!) but I get a discount through Costco. Has anyone else heard of them? Or have any other recommendations?
Thanks!http://https://grechrv.com/

Remember, with an increase in seat belts, some states will require health coverage of a certain amount per seat! Insurance company will also calculate thusly!

Weeeel Merry, once you are done with the laughing fit just pretend you run an insurance company. Two fellers show up to buy insurance one has a rig that has 4 places with seat belts, the other has one that has 15 seat spaces with seatbelts. Now how much do you wanna charge em for passenger medical expenses places... the same ...????? or more to the feller who can seat 15 vs 4? Its just plain and simple facts based logic extension. Here is some more information for ya to digest.


So in other woids, both vehicles basically mangled fully one had 4 peops the other had 15 as you can see, the 15 seater is gonna create a huge liability so you gotta charge em more to keep your pension funded else your company will go bankrupt before you retire!



Medical Car Insurance Coverage
Medical coverage is one of three main groups of car insurance coverages that also include liability insurance and vehicle coverages.
Medical car insurance coverage helps pay for costs you encounter after you or your passengers are hurt in a car accident.



The two main types of medical coverage are:
  • Medical payments coverage.
  • Personal injury protection.
Medical Payments Coverage

Medical payments coverage will help pay for your medical bills after you are hurt in a car accident.
Medical payments will also help pay for:
  • Funeral costs.
  • Injuries suffered by your passengers.
  • Injuries you sustain as a pedestrian or bicyclist if you are hit by a car.
  • Necessary dental care resulting from a car accident.
Details may vary depending on your car insurance company. Speak to your car insurance agent or representative to learn more about their medical payments coverage.

No, unfortunately they were out of our price range. But we saw them at Hershey and they were gorgeous. We bought an Entegra Ethos 20A, which has a second row of captains chairs. Perfect for the grandkids and I. Good luck!

Smile Grech Strada Ion Tour

Hello,
We are total newbs, new to irv2, new to RV, new to snow birding.
We just bought a ClassB Grech Strada Ion . It is stunning. We looked at pleasureway and airstream. Love this Grech.

I see a few people asking about it. We got the tour version, a little extra space. 2ft in back and a closet up front, it does have 5 seat belts and an air suspension. I rode quite a ways in the back seats and it was really nice. Also very excited about the Li-ion battery instead of a generator. Anyway, I’m not sure I can answer many more questions because we haven’t started with it, but stay tuned. I can say, I called the company and they were amazing. The engineer spent 20 minutes on the phone with me providing an overview and tutorial and references. These units are new even to a lot of dealers so it is great that Grech is so available, and helpful.

Thank you

@BrucenMel,
Thank you! Glad to hear you like it, we’re still looking into possibly getting one. I appreciate you taking the time to post because there isn’t much info out there yet.

I do have one question, how do you feel about the cargo weight you get? Is it enough for you? When I was looking it seemed like there was no difference between any of the styles (Tour/Lounge or Propane/Li-ion) for cargo weight so I wasn’t sure how accurate it was.

Thank you again =)

Grech Strada Tour ClassB

Thanks WL322

About the Grech Strada , you asked about space. Well you are right to think that the class Bs have tiny space…. but our trade off was to be more nimble. Anyway, we found this one to have the most space of the ClassBs we looked at. Ours is the 24 ft so it has the extra foot or two behind the bed. And the “Tour” version has the closet space up front (instead of two more seats), and actually, lots of cabinet space. It has 7 total seatbelts including the cab.


As far a Cargo weight. We haven’t used it yet to find a drag on it… we have attached a swing open Stowaway2 cargo box and a Thule bike rack for two mountain bikes. And those seem great. We don’t really plan on towing. So I don’t know what you are needing but you could certainly call Grech and ask them.

There are not many of these out there yet. And now the chip slowdown will stall more production. So let me know if you get one.
