Default Heading to Hershey tomorrow (Friday, Sept 12)

I'm going to check out the show tomorrow. Only one day.

If anyone has any requests for something to check on, take a pic of, please reply here and I'll try my best to accommodate you.

I'm mainly going to look at B-Vans, particularly ones on the Promaster, so I'll have a report on any I find.

I'm jealous have a great time I'm looking forward to whatever you report on from the show. Maybe ask the reps if they're going to have anything on the Ford Transit if you get a chance.

roadtrek needs the 6 cylinder engine to use the engine generator. you might be able to special order a 4 cylinder but no engine generator

Looks like the high idle/variable idle option is available with the 4cyl, and I would expect that there would be even more room under the hood for the add on generator. I believe that A-RV also did this with their Mzungu based on what I heard at the summer event but I can not confirm it at this time.

order docs below w/out restrictions for engine type and idle options;

all i can say is jim hammill said Roadtreks will all be 6 cylinder for the engine generator. they are even going to be ordering 6 cylinder on the Agile(currently it is 4) so they can put engine generator in that. you might question him directly.

That's Roadtrek's decision. It doesn't mean it can't be done on a 4 cylinder. When making a decision at Advanced RV on 4 or 6 cylinder there was no discussion about limitations between the two. I'll be heading out to Advanced RV soon so will check again but I am fairly sure that the 4 cylinder Mzungu concept B built last year had the second alternator as black88mx6 mentions. Also, in reading Advanced RV's website they mention the second alternator as a standard with no limiting conditions.

Anyway, back to Hershey. Wincrasaher65, check out that Promaster P-W Lexor and find out where all the tanks are. Look to see if anyone else shows up with a Promaster. Maybe Great West Vans?

Meanwhile, I am going to the Fall RV Show at the Anoka County Fairgrounds today. Lake Region RVs will have a Roadtrek TS Adventurous there and their Alabama built Great West Van Legend I mentioned before. http://metrorvdealers.com/

And I did say that was Roadtrek's decision. You worded in such a way that both black88mx6 and I took it to mean that Roadtrek determined it couldn't be done. Now tell me why Roadtrek will not do it on a 4 cylinder. That's rhetorical, BTW. We already know the answer. It's proprietary.

There was no TS Adventurous at the Anoka County Fairgrounds RV show as I thought. They had an RS-Etrek, a CS Adventurous, RS-Adventurous and Agile there. They also had a Ranger and a Popular 190 4x4. Also a GWVan Legend and a Midwest day cruiser Sprinter along with a bunch of Citation Class Cs. Lake Region RVs also reps Leisure Travel Vans but did not have any at the show. If you wanted an LTV today, right now, you won't get delivery of one until next May. They are backed up that much as they are building them as fast as they can. They have more capacity but they can't get and hire qualified workers.
