Default List of Ram Promaster based Class B Campervans

Ram Promaster Class B Campervans

Here's a summary of currently available or planned Ram Promaster Class B Campervans that I'm aware of from well known Class B van manufacturers.

Winnebago was first to offer a Promaster based campervan. Looks like two there are two models now, the Travato 59G and the Travato 59K.

Their website is: http://winnebagotouring.com/ and it has lots of info about the 59G but nothing on the new 59K as of the date of this post.

I'm not sure which company was second to offer Promaster Class B. It was either Great West Vans or Safari Condo.

Great West Vans named their ProMaster B "Classic" and it's on their website here: http://www.greatwestvans.com/new-model/

Great West Classic


Safari Condo's Promaster based Class B's are the M18 and the XL21. Those numbers refer to the length of the vans. The XL21 is also known as the Flex.

Pleasure Way was next to offer a Promaster Class B. Theirs is the Lexor. It is not on their website http://www.pleasureway.com at the date of this post but i expect it to be available soon. They do have a full brochure available here: https://gi118.infusionsoft.com/app/link ... e79423e3f2

Next up is Roadtrek and their Ram Promaster based Zion. This model was introduced at the same trade show where the Travato 59K was introduced. Nothing on their website http://www.roadtrek.com yet but I'm sure they'll have info up soon.

Great post. I wonder what Great West is doing with those wheels?

Those are just wheel covers over stock rims.

They look like the front wheel cover simulators off a Sprinter 3500. The design from the Sprinters mimics the profile of the wheel so they call them wheel simulators. In GWVan's case compared to the other Promasters they look a little puzzling.

There are three Promaster based RV's I'd like to add to the list:

Does anybody like composting toilets? The following two companies use them.

Eko

http://ekorvfun.com/

This RV uses a conventional two living space arrangement with a rear dinette/bed, with a middle wet bath kitchen, and front living space.

However, there have been some comments speculating if this company actually exists.


The SVO Group

Described in the Motorhome website
http://www.motorhome.com/rv-travel-news ... into-2015/

http://svogroup.server289.com/

This is a new manufacturer based in Elkhart IN. Their Promaster conversion has a rear bathroom layout with twin bunks similar to the new Travato 59K floorplan. The interior looks plush and they include a 6ft flip down patio in the rear. However, the bathroom looks funky with just a curtain for privacy and they do not appear to have signed on to trend for a low key unadorned exterior for “stealth camping”. The unit has big decals and prominent branding all over it.

The last company has yet to show up on our shores, but was reported to be planning to make an appearance.

Hymercar from Germany

http://www.autonews.com/article/2014012 ... .s.-market

http://www.hymercar.com/en/models/

What interests me, is their models include a popup tent sleeping area up on the roof for two extra people. Class B's often have the capacity to carry more than two people, but either made the extra sleeping accommodations awkward, or killed off valuable interior storage space. This solution seems compelling, because it preserves interior storage and provides an option for sleeping two extra passengers.

Re: Eko - this link should be read: http://rob-tracy.pissedconsumer.com/...107469246.html

Is the HymerCar 322 also known as the Grand Canyon?

Awesome find re: the Embassy from SVO Group http://svogroup.server289.com/index.html#embassy

http://www.motorhome.com/rv-travel-news ... into-2015/
Quote:
SVO Group: An altogether new entrant, SVO Group Inc. of Elkhart, Indiana, threw its hat into the Ram ProMaster Class B ring with the debut of an $86,000 Embassy B van at the Open House. The Embassy differs in that it features a rear-bath floorplan (with composting toilet), which opens up the living area. The motorhome also features a hydronic heating system and a 6-foot patio that extends off the rear.

Roadtrek Zion video linked above was deleted. Here's the new edited version:

[youtube:2d6vutwn]5tdsMEEXU5w[/youtube:2d6vutwn]

MSRP comments and delivery to dealers in Jan edited out. The purchasing dealers at the trade show introduction may have requested features or changes that would affect pricing and the press release http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/vi...hp?f=13&t=3395 indicates that they "will officially begin production in February 2015".

All the models listed above have their pluses and minuses. I really like this floorplan:

Hymer Grand Canyon


I think it would be useful for day tripping with another couple, travelling with kids, weekend trips to visit family, picking up friends or relatives from the airport etc. I'm a fan of twin beds that can be converted to king if desired.

We already have a similar floor plan in North America offered by Safari Condo: http://www.safaricondo.com/en/motorises_Promaster_FLEX

Is the shower in the SVO Group's Embassy Class B RV in the rear? Does it have a shower?
