Default How's this for a wild, compact floor plan?

I think you'd either love the drop down bed, or simply hate it.

It's invisible-best floorplan you've ever shown us.

I must say, that's a LOT of space.

That's not too bad. I watched a video on Youtube recently where a bed was stored above the living area like this one and it would be lowered down into a bunk bed style so you could still have space under it, or brought right down.

Wow, I can't believe I found it.

It also has an island kitchen as well. It's "interesting", I'm not sure if I like it or not.

On that drop down bed there were two mattresses. Since the head part goes clear across the B are we to assume the top mattress flips over to make a full bed? I'm trying to figure out from the video how it would be supported if that is so. I am assuming she did not complete the operation but just pulled the bed down to demonstrate that was where it was.

I think once the bed is down you pull on the side rail to expand the bed to its full width (like a big drawer). The wood side rail is not attached to the rail at the foot of the bed, and there's a curve in the middle of the rail suggesting a hand hold. It could rest on the countertop to help support it (or maybe it's angled so that it doesn't hit the counter?). I also noticed the tabletop appears to be double-stacked, so maybe that slides out to help support the bed?

The new Dynamax Rev24B model also uses a drop down bed and is on the Promaster chassis. I wonder how much headroom there is in these models with the bed up? Here's a video from the Fit RV folks:

there is a TB model besides the RB. it has twin beds in the back.

having said that the RB lowered bed is 60x80. i wonder how much weight it can carry. Dynamax is usually very expensive. any idea on price(msrp). I know nobody pays msrp but it's a start?

The Rev 24TB got my attention too.



The RB is less than $69,000 http://www.rvt.com/Dynamax-REV-24RB-201 ... 67-UX50219

These new small C's are getting very interesting.

For a "C" that is to compete against Winnebago on price, the REV is interesting. The 24TB is a lot like the Winnebago ERA 70A, except a tad wider and with a dry bath.

I wonder what the "real" price on that rig will be, and what the quality is like.

mlts22,

I don't see it as a ERA 70A competitor but it is a strong and worthy competitor in the small Class C category. It doesn't come close in quality to the Leisure Travel Vans or Pleasure-ways in that category, IMO but the plan is damn good. So, it is a question as to how they manage to sell it at that price. You want to ask, what is the catch? It got James and Stef's attention at the Fit RV blog. I think they were more impressed with the Pleasure-way Plateau XL, another small C. They still haven't found the RV to replace their 'Das Bus', a 203 Forest River MB Cruiser that they extensively, and I mean extensively, remodeled. I doubt James' 47 point checklist could possibly be fulfilled nor even their 4 + 4 must haves in any one RV, but it is interesting to watch their videos going through the reviews and searches.

Winnebago Trend 23L? Nice floorplan, sleeps more than 2, full dry bath. power flex bed/lift bed. Etc, etc, etc.....
My only concern is the power to weight situation with the chassis. It''s why I would probably go to one of the smallest class As, like the Axis or FR3 25DS before the Trend. It's a gasser too, I know, but the engine in the Trend seems lightweight for the chassis. I like hilly terrain.
