Driving a Class B Camper Van like a Pleasure Way or a Winnebago Era can be an amazing way to see the country, reconnect with family, and enjoy the pleasures of the open road. However, with the power and freedom of a camper van comes a responsibility to share the road and be a respectful and safe driver. Here are 10 ways to become a more respectful and considerate driver while driving one of these RVs.
1. Keep the left lane for passing vehicles
Most states already have laws that state that the left lane should only be used when passing or when turning. If you aren’t doing either of the two, you should be in the right lane.
2. Learn to zipper merge
Zipper merging is a good way to make construction zones or quick lane closures work more efficiently. Most drivers think that they’re [...]
An all-wheel drive Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 vehicle model was introduced recently, thrilling both Mercedes-Benz and 4-wheel drive enthusiasts. Since the chassis used on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is the same chassis that is used on several types of Class B Motorhomes, this opens many possibilities and the potential to see a 4×4 class B motor home in the future. These possibilities are something dreams are made of for those who love cruising the open highway in class B motor homes.
Several models of class B motor homes now use this chassis, including the Winnebago Era and the Airstream Interstate. This all-wheel drive system is not the kind that stays on all the time. Instead, it is more of an on-demand system where the driver pushes a button to activate it when it’s needed or wanted. How The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 Works
The Pleasure-Way Pursuit is a product born out of trial and error. This Canadian motorhome manufacturer spent years crafting recreational vehicles that had both style and functionality while collecting feedback from loyal customers. The Pursuit is a by-product of that process. Consumers wanted a Class-B style home with a slightly larger base. Pleasure-Way met that challenge with their 22’ Pursuit.
There are three key features to take note of when entering the Pursuit.
You might have already read about the Pleasure-Way Pursuit, how it goes above and beyond many other Class B Motorhomes. Now you can see just how great this Class B-Plus motorhome really is with this fantastic walkthrough.
With the cold days gone and temperatures rising, why not consider a camping trip for Father’s Day. Spending the day in your Class B Motorhome provides the opportunity for breathing fresh air, feeling the warm rays of the sun and enjoying some spectacular scenery. Spend special one-on-one time with Dad while boating, fishing or hiking. Many family operated campgrounds around the country create unique events in celebration of the day.
At Little Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, the Bakers Acres Camping facility features relay races not found anywhere else. The Diaper Change Race provides fathers with the opportunity of displaying their childcare skills, as men race along a course with dolls in strollers. Stopping at the changing station, they remove and replace mock dirty diapers and run back to the finish line.
Another race offered by the destination has dads competing in meal preparation. While dressed in [...]
The Roadtrek N6 Active is the latest state-of-the-art product released by the Canadian-based company. Centered around a Nissan NV2500 HD chassis, the N6 Active RV is propelled by the same 5.6 liter V8 engine and transmission found in Nissan’s Titan pickup truck, and it also features the truck’s same rugged boxed ladder frame. However, the upgraded suspension featured on the N6 is much more plush and similar to driving a Cadillac.
It may be a plush ride, but this bad boy of a vehicle cannot be accused of being soft. In fact, this revolutionary Class B motorhome has a cargo-carrying capacity of over 1,200 pounds, which is more than enough for six people and plenty of travel gear. Furthermore, it can tow up to 7950 pounds of boats, jeeps, or whatever toys a consumer can imagine. This makes it a terrific transportation option for those classic family [...]
Pleasure-Way has rolled out a new line of RVs, it’s first ever B-Plus class motorhome. Straddling the economy of the B class and the luxury of the C class, the Pleasure-Way Pursuit provides something of the best of both worlds.
The Pursuit is built on a Ford E350 dual rear wheel cutaway chassis, giving it a 22 foot length. This is ideal for consumers who are looking for something roomier than the standard B class economy model without having the bus-like size of the C class. This means that it has room to stretch out in comfortably for a small family or couple, while not requiring special experience or training to operate. The smaller size makes if more fuel efficient as well. The Pursuit comes in at 13 to 15 miles per gallon on the highway, depending on the load, which is rather good for vehicles of its size.
The Daytona 500 is the Big One: Speedweeks finale, largest purse on the NASCAR circuit (two million dollars!), and the most watched motor race in America. All NASCAR fans have dreamt of a trip to Daytona Beach for the “Superbowl of Stock Car Racing”, and some return year after year, but many prospective and first time visitors find themselves turned off by the hassles and high prices of the limited local accommodations. Anyone frustrated with the choice between crowded campgrounds and expensive hotels, should consider the affordable alternative of bringing their own home; a Roadtrek Motorhome.
The Roadtrek has been the best-selling class B motorhome in America for over twenty years, and is known as reliable and roomy choice for any family. Sleeping up to four (including king-sized master-bedroom) with its own kitchen, changing room, bathroom, and (in most models) private eating nook, the Roadtrek offers [...]
At first glance, a conversion van and a Class B motor home may look very similar. Both are based on commercially produced vans manufactured by major automakers. However, the levels of modifications vary and the two classes of vehicles serve two separate purposes. A purchaser looking for the features of a conversion van would not be happy with a Class B motor home.
The conversion van starts with a basic commercially produced van and adds after-market accessories. Companies specializing in the conversion van market commonly add these accessories although some vans are still converted as do-it-yourself projects. Dealers often use the conversion van company name when marketing these vans.
A conversion travel van can include a raised roof sometimes known as a “high top.” This makes it easier to move around within the van. Other features commonly added include luxury seating, entertainment centers [...]
Traveling to New Orleans to attend the Big Game in February 2013 will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all involved. One way to make the experience even more fun and memorable for a group of family and friends would be to make the journey in a Class B van. A Class B motorhome’s size makes it both compact enough to conveniently maneuver yet spacious enough to comfortably transport loved ones and accommodate guests for a massive tailgate party or a small gathering before the big game.
Class B motorhomes offer the maneuverability of a large van coupled with the convenience of a full sized recreational vehicle. Most newer model Class B motorhomes have a height of between nine and ten feet. The widths on newer models run between six and seven feet, and the lengths of the homes run between eighteen and twenty feet. Most class B motorhomes can sleep two to four people, so [...]
