Nice find. So it looks like Safari Condo will build on the Promaster chassis. It looks like a shorter wheelbase model.

Too early for it to be on their website: http://www.safaricondo.com/index_eng.php

From the comments in French: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 354&type=1

It looks like they got 20 mpg US when they tested it with speeds to 65 mph. Probably before conversion.

Gas engine right now but they plan to be able to offer the diesel next May or June.

This first Safari Condo Promaster is 18'. As soon as they finish this build they'll start building a 21' long unit.

Bed is 55 1/2" wide.

This one will be available for purchase just after Christmas.

They do link it on the site with "secret project" button in the lower center.

Thank you - I see it now.

So, are we at four North American Class B manufacturers building on the ProMaster chassis?

Winnebago
Sportsmobile
Eko
Safari Condo

Hopefully, they will get a floorplan up on the site sometime soon. They seem to be a pretty small operation, and the website seems to run quite a ways behind sometimes. When we looked at an Alto in a dealer in London (Ontario), they said that the trailer side of Safari Condo was backordered for many months. They do seem to have rebates on the class b's, though, so that side must not be selling as well.

Marko, what do you use to translate? Or are you a French speaker? I always seem to get really odd results from the translators I have tried in the past.

I use Google Translate but also have to figure out the results.

Do they sell Safari Condo Bs in the US? I've seen them around but they were all Canadian.

Not sure on the B's, but they can now export the trailers to the US.
