Default Pleasure-Way new model - Pursuit

I don't know what type of RV Pleasure-Way will announce at the 2012 Hershey show. The shower looks too big to fit inside a van. That shower sure looks nice though.

Default Re: Pleasure-Way B Plus

I think there was clue in their ad.

It said "Lots of Real Pluses" so that must be a "B Plus" model. "Pluses" strikes me as an unusual word choice. I sense an intent there. I must be reading too many mystery books

B+ isn't an official RV type but it is descriptive. Better than C minus for sure Pleasure Way Plus is catchy.

What do you think? Class B or Class C or B plus?

Hmmm, maybe it is a Class B.......
The new Leisure Travel Free Spirit SS with a slide has a large bathroom. link: http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/vi...php?f=9&t=2275

I just have to be patient and wait for the reveal.

PW has updated their page again. The latest feature does not look like it could possibly be on a Class B.



So, is it going to be a B plus, a Class C or what?

Whoa! B+ is better than a C, it's just below an A, so it goes:

Class A
Class B+
Class B
Class C (no one's parents want them to get these

Not sure what a Class C- would be...

Some new info posted.

Height: 10' 5"
Width: 8' 5"
Length: 22' 2"
So it is a B+ or small C I guess. I doubt it is a trailer.

Pleasure-Way Pursuit

I first saw the name of the new Pleasure-way on rv.net
http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fusea ... 366663.cfm

They mentioned a photo on the closed PW Group
It's not a B for sure.

The price of it will be interesting to know. Typically B+ units follow Class C type pricing (lower than B's) but I think PW went high end with the finishing on the 2013 Pursuit.

Owners should feel comfortable here as the style of camping / touring and the space challenges will be much like what B van owners experience.

(I moved this topic to the B plus section here)

I wonder if that MPG estimate is US gallon or Imperial gallon.....

I got more like 10 to 12 U.S. gallon MPG in my Trail-lite B plus on a Chevy platform but the front of my Trail-lite wasn't as streamlined as the Pleasure-Way Pursuit. I didn't keep records on that one....
Setting up the sleeping area in my Trail-Lite every night was a negative for us compared to a B van. It will be interesting to see how PW handles that in their new Pursuit.

Hopefully some interior photos will be out soon.

At 13-15, it probably is not a V10, either. I think they may be stretching it a bit, and 10+13 would probably be closer in the real world. Roadtrek will say 16-18 on a 6.0 Chevy 190, but most runs come in at 15-16 for us, and many others.
