Default Hello from Pennsylvania

Hi all,
My name is Karen and I live in Southeastern Pennsylvania, near Valley Forge.
My husband and I have just started doing research for our first RV, and we are looking at Pleasure Way and Roadtrek with a Gas engine. We really like the look of the Pleasure Way Lexor. Our plan is to use it for weekend trips and the occasional longer trips.

If you haven't already availed yourself of the opportunity, Fretz RV in Suderton is pretty close to you. They have a wide variety of Class B coaches.

Thank you. Yes, in fact we have been there, as well as in contact with them. At this point I want to see what owners of Pleasure-Ways vans think of them, and pros and cons.

Never owned a Pleasure Way but have owned a 2007 RT 210V which we purchased used in 2010 with 5200 miles on it. Now have 112000 miles on it and really like the vehicle. Have driven it from Florida to California 5 times, to New England from Florida several times, to Yellowstone twice and to Rocky Mountain NP 3 times. We get about 13mpg depending on how much we use the AC and how much time we spend in the mountains.

We just sold our P-W Pursuit and bought a Roadtrek Etrek. Totally different in interesting ways. The P-W is purpose-built as an RV, the Roadtrek is a van "conversion". P-W has very high quality build, finishes, etc but is a "truck" (E350) which is loud and thirsty and automotively primitive, old school. The RT on the other hand is high(er) end vehicle but the fit and finishes are, while nice, not nearly as good as the P-W. Interestingly, we think the actual useful space inside is much better with the RT than the P-W. Also having four buckets up front increases the utility of the RT. And we are just beginning to appreciate the power and off-grid utility of the RT (solar, under hood genny, no propane, tons of batts). Neither is perfect but they are decidedly different. FYI

Default Which RV to research

Karen, we are from Texas, and we ordered a Pleasure-way Plateau XLTD through Fretz RV in Souderton, PA. My wife and I will be travelling there in October to pick it up. We have driven and tested many Class B, and selected this one due to the floor plan and the extra space. JB

Look at my ad at rvt.com ad # 8114483. For someone who wants to start into the RV experience, nothing like a VW. A very good way to start into a self contained unit. In Dover area and will be moving and no longer will be able to do the traveling as I have done in the past. JB

Default your search for a weekend RV

I wouldn't rule out Winnebago class B's. I found dealing with outside mfgrs can be a challenge when I tried to order a running board for my PW ascent. Shipping cost more than the part.

Smile Larry Southern Calif Travato 59K

Check out the Winnebago Travato line. Gas, easy to drive and fuel eff.
I have the 59K model and it has a very open feeling as well as a roomy bathroom. Comes with solar and the new Truma heat sys. Also has a compressor drived refrigerator. Lots of new things in the 2019 model.
