Nice looking rig Mark. It looks real nice inside. You'll enjoy the extra room.

Thanks renrut. This RV was only used for 5 months but it was full-time use so it shows a fair bit of wear and tear. I'll eventually replace the carpet.

We went to Weirs Beach RV Resort this weekend.



I have some photos of Weirs Beach RV Resort here:

They were taken when we last visited in our Roadtrek.

Realllly nice rig Marko.

So basically the only thing it's missing is the bunk over the cab. Maybe they should call it a Class C-.

How's the milage compare to the Roadtrek. I know Renrut's class C is pretty bad, but it's older too.

Thanks paulm.

B+ sounds a bit better than C-

It's approx 23' long, my van was almost 22', so we can still fit in the places we like.

Don't know the MPG. Maybe 10, maybe 12. Most of our trips will be short distance.

I know this is an older post but I still wanted to say I really like the layout. In our B we leave the couch at the back setup as a bed always. If that couch was in a bed mode can you still walk by? My wife liked the fact that shower on its own like that would be nice. The trade off for making the bed everyday vs campground showers would be a tough one. I do like your setup but I am not the one making the bed .

No.

The couch meets the dinette. You can make up one really large bed when they're combined. (probably close to 90" x 80")

Lately, we been sleeping on the opened sofa (approx 54" wide) and have left the dinette in place. Before that, I slept in the dinette made up as a bed and my wife slept on the unopened couch. That kept the aisle open.

Actually looking at your layout there really is no need to walk through at night anyway. So in the morning flip the couch back up and your ready to go. Thanks for the response.

Default Re: I bought a Trail-Lite 213 B+

Wow, this thread is dated.
However, we drove by this place today and saw 2 B+ RVs on the lot.
It's a little hamlet about 20 miles west of us with about a dozen vehicles for sale.
I had no idea what the vans were as we drove by, but my best guess was a BT Cruiser
or something similar.
As it turns out they were
http://www.carpages.ca/used/2003/Chevro ... rio/474655
which I didn't really think would work for a boondocker like me, as it has no generator
and then I saw this old favorite of yours....
http://www.carpages.ca/used/2003/Chevro ... rio/402186

Having owned one yourself, what do you think of this unit? No rush as I doubt I can
convince the DW that we should have a closer look, but I thought if you had a minute,
I'd appreciate your thoughts or comments.

BTW, how're things in NB? Getting the hang of your precip coming down as a solid?
I recall you were looking for a dock for your land cruiser last time we chatted. Any luck?

TTYL,
Mike.
