I saw the pictures you presented earlier bclemens.

For my wife and I: 1) we would toss out the sofa and put in sofa recliners, then 2) modify the bunks for clothes and other storage. Tow a 4/4 2500 ram truck or rebel 1500 with some payload for additional storage, a crew cab for the Boxer at night, and this might work for us as a couple for a three month outing.

The key for me would be some sort of recliner solution and enough workable storage occc with a tow vehicle to add on some storage, even if I needed to rely on after market solutions. That is basically the hold back for me with a high end class B. The ram chassis and engine is a big draw if you get it right. The kitchen looked reasonably functional.

I would like to avoid the longer force if I can. We just don't need much more than 30 feet for a couple that is not full-timing. A used Breeze was a consideration to bring the budget in line as was a used Dynamax. Mobility, mobility, mobility.

Working with a dealer up there right now. We have had a request from a few Canadian dealers that want the Isata 5. As long as they commit to the chassis we order, we will look at ordering them in. I don't think I will do any 4x4's however...that just ends up being too many different chassis to balance.

Any chance the 30 footer will have both a dinette and a couch?
Currently have a solera s and really want the w but wife wants more room and both a dinette and a couch. Just don't think I could handle driving anything much bigger

Promaster chassis
Canadian Promaster chassis
Mercedes Sprinter
Canadian Mercedes Sprinter
Ford E450
Ram 5500 4x2
Ram 5500 4x4
Freightliner M2 106 28K

And now we may add a Canadian 5500...I think I'll just pick one. And just about all of these, we have to guess quantities 4-6 months out.

Thanks for responding with more information bclemens.

Please forgive the "owners," for their funning with you...The season of being off the road is upon some of us.
