Default 2003-2008 - B+ - 23-25 ft - corner bed - slide out dinette

Hello,

I'm looking to get a Class B+, year 2003-2008, length 23-25 ft with a back corner bed and a slide out dinette. So far I only found the following 2 models.

Dynamax Carri-Go 2510 - http://www.dynamaxclub.com/wp-conten...ax-carrigo.pdf

Phoenix Cruiser 2351 - https://www.mhsrv.com/2006-phoenix-c...-c-tx-i2367458
I live in Canada and unfortunately the Phoenix Cruiser is not admissible into Canada and I can't find the Dynamax anywhere. I'm sure there must be some other models around but I googled already for hours

Does anyone knows of any other models that meet my requirements?

Thank you for your help!
Brigit

EDIT: Added the correct link to the 2006 Phoenix Cruiser 2350

The Phoenix Cruiser is not listed as admissible, but as the document states

Quote:
All other class B motorhomes not shown as admissible on this list are inadmissible unless not regulated at importation due to age (older than
15 years)
A 2003 Phoenix Cruiser would be admissible.

Unfortunately a 2003 is not OLDER than 15 years. I checked with the border crossing. That would only be a 2001 or a Jan-July 2002 at the moment.

And I just added the correct link to the Phoenix Cruiser 2350 I found for sale. It's a 2006 model. It would be a really good deal but unfortunately not old enough

I had assumed by 15 years they actually meant by the numbers, but getting that exact seems silly.

Now here's a question, is the 15 year thing based on the chassis date of manufacture or the upfitter date of manufacture? As we know most motorhomes are built on a previous year model van, so a 2003 is built on a 2002 chassis.

Have you looked at Winnebago Aspect/Itasca Cambria? These have exactly the layout you re looking for. The slide out dinette is U shaped which I think is nicer than the std two bench dinette.

Thank you
Yes, I came across it yesterday as someone posted it as a 25fter and I got totally excited. But looking further into they are both actually 26'7" ft long which is too long as I'm driving on a lot of backcountry roads.

I had a 19ft Roadtrek Versatile for over 4 years and that was perfect for my weekend/vacation trips. It got stolen a few weeks ago so I had to look for a replacement and while searching around I found the 20ft Roadtrek Versatile model. I fell instantly in love with it as it has way more storage space, bigger fridge etc. But coincidentally life had some surprises for me and I'm able to semi-retire within the next 12 month. So I will live full time in my newest addition and of course now I have to find a good compromise with space and length. I really think 25 ft is the total maximum I want to go with.

P.S. Where in BC are you located? I live in Kelowna
