  1. Hi there, I’m completely new to the rv forum world but a friend mentioned it would be the best place to get objective advice and ideas. I’ve lived with a friend in a camper van for the past 4 years and feel it’s time to go on my own with my cat. The problem being that I am still somewhat new to the whole rv world in general. I am completely stuck between 2 class B rvs. One being a 1996 dodge roadtrek versatile with 88,000 miles for $20k with only an outside generator and the other being a 2006 roadtrek popular with 156,000 miles for $28k with no refrigerator. My first instinct would be to go for the older, lower immediate cost as I’m 25 and currently only working minimum wage. However my apprehension comes to the cost of any breakdowns or issues I might face along the way with an older vehicle, in addition to having to purchase a generator or fridge. I know there tend to be minor fixes typically for any rv, but my concern is more on the bigger fixes I would have to go to a shop for and spends hundreds, possibly up to thousands to fix. Not to mention the current uptick in RV popularity makes it a bit hard to find a vehicle within a price range I can afford myself. Any advice or insight would be appreciated!
  2. CUSTOM, PROFESSIONALLY CONVERTED, FEATURE-RICH, ADVENTURE VAN FOR SALE We are selling this van because we just finished building a new one. We loved this van so much that we built our new one to be almost exactly the same! The only reason we built a new one is because we are thinking about starting a van conversion company and wanted to see if we could do one ourselves. It's hard, rewarding work! Needless to say, we don't need two vans, so we are selling our original van! Check out our website for more information! www.drifterjourney.com We also have a full video tour on YouTube.

  3. I’ve been reading a lot about the danger signs and what to watch for. But I still have one question: is there a price under which you generally know a class B is not worth buying? Thanks!

    Roadtrek group?

    Is there an Escapees Roadtrek group? We are going to see a used Roadtrek this weekend that we hope will be "the one" and would like to connect with others who own this brand of RV. Thanks!
  5. Hello Escapees and Xscapers, If you would like a nicely-designed, quality and well-maintained Pleasure-Way Plateau FL (Front Lounge) coach or van with low miles, consider ours. As a Sprinter van, it's diesel and is about 23' long. Sleeps 2 (back sofa converts to a queen+ bed). 2016 Anniversary Edition (with two lithium batteries and two small inverters) 2016 Mercedes Sprinter chassis with only 21,000 miles Extras include: 285 watts of solar, sliding door screen, cabin shelf and lagun table Please watch the Pleasure-Way walk-through video with a company leader, Dean, showing the same features and decor!https://youtu.be/xzc_VCmU24M Starting at $94,790 This van will be in the Phoenix and Tucson, AZ area for most of February. We love it and she drives beautifully and is in great condition. We are selling it because we realize that two full timers who both work need more space to do that well. Contact Tracy at 919-610-8477 or hollister.tracy at gmail dot com for more information. We look forward to hearing from fellow Escapees!
  6. Recently I saw the question posted on facebook, "Can I install a household shower head in an RV" The answer of course is yes. they both use standard pipe fittings as well as the faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. I decided to get a shower head that is not labeled for RV use and see what happens. I was completely underwhelmed, it was just like I had put the factory shower head back on. So now I'm back in the comfort of my oxygenics. Check it out if you have some time!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXr6jFOMVVk
  7. I am thinking of buying a 2008 Itaska Navion and I’m wondering if anyone has had experience with this motorhome. It has a Dodge sprinter Mercedes chassis and I’m wondering about the reliability of these and also any issues that people may have had in the past. Any information you could give me this morning would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you, Maggie

  9. There are A LOT of real nice big name Class B RV’s out there, and for a while, we thought we wanted a nice new one. After shopping around and visiting a few RV dealers, we decided we wanted to try to avoid going into debt to get one. After a few months of searching, we found the perfect lightly used RV for us! We had to drive 8 hours away to get it, but we paid cash, and couldn’t be happier!! In March we will be begin living/traveling out of it full time! We are still working on making some modifications to set it up exactly the way we want it, and we can’t wait to get out there full time! We just posted a tour of our rig (before most of the major modifications), so check it out if you’re interested!
  10. Anyone else using Verizon Unlimited and liking it? Yeah it's not truly unlimited in every way, but it still is a home internet replacement for me without issue. I made this video in my apartment, but I am weekender currently when it comes to RVing, and am out every weekend primarily at the same campground, but out to different parts of the country around me regularly.
  11. Here is a quick tip for winterizing that RV fridge if you have the same handles I do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ-1YfREYj4
  12. I recently installed two Battle Born lithium batteries and an Ames 2000 watt inverter charger into my travel trailer. Here is how it looks all finished up minus the parallel cables for the two batteries, Here is my real world usage for those batteries anybody else using these batteries, I am a big fan. I will no longer carry a generator 2-4 day boondocking trips.
  13. Temperatures are getting chilly overnight, I have a tip for those of us without heat pumps. This allows me to use electric heat and or catalytic heaters that sip propane to warm the entire coach.
