Pop-top on a ProMaster 1500. No shower or toilet, but a lot of open space to store gear.

That's a nice clean design, basically a more spacious VW Campmobile on a modern day reliable vehicle chassis. Perfect for a young family looking for a basic adventure vehicle that sleeps four.

I must applaud Pleasure-Way for keeping the design simple and functional.

Interested! I wonder how hard/costly it would be to retrofit a water heater and find a way to have a usable port-a-potti inside. Also, source an awning for the passenger side...

Anyone figure out a hot water fix?

Hot water and shower are easy—see my build.

I’d be more concerned about headroom. Headroom in the bare low-roof PM van is about 5’ 7”, exactly my height with shoes. They have raised the floor and not raised the roof accordingly except in the open area forward of the upper bed. Considering where the rear ceiling meets the cab ceiling, experience in my own van tells me I would bump my head.

I purchased a Plateau TL last month. 4 month wait time. I like the new MB safety features and the standard LI batteries. The only issue is that it does not include a spare tire. Anyone know of a good rear door mount unit that doesn't stress the door?

The Tofino looks... more like a "weekender" style... no bathroom... no AC.

I like that they aimed for a lower price, though.

I'm interested in this Tofino. I also liked the Axion Studio for it's top down headroom and bathroom, but that option is gone....

Does anyone here have one? What are your thoughts? What's the longest you've camped in it?

I have the same hopes/dreams, Anachr0n. I hope someone steps up and makes a short gas class B, now that the Axion is gone. Heck, I would love it if someone like Pleasureway pulled it off. Their build quality compared to the Axion feels night and day. My dream rig would be the a Promaster built just like the Ascent (under 20 feet). I really like the Tofino, but not being able to stand up is a real deal breaker for me.

Do you think something like that would be affordable at the end of the day?

Well, "affordable" is relative, isn't it? The smaller Bs are all less expensive than their 3500 siblings. The Toffino price tag isn't ridiculous. When you consider how much is tacked on for the pop top, it really makes you realize that a smaller high quality class B doesn't have to break the bank.

The only difference would be in the chassis price of the high roof 1500 vs low roof 1500. Insignificant IMO. Oh, and include a taller ladder to reach the roof outside.

And while you're at it Pleasure-way, throw some headrests and 3 point belts on the bench seat so people could actually use it safely for extra passengers. I'm baffled that manufacturers still consider a couple of lap belts to be enough to proclaim that the rig is a 4-seater.

Yes, particularly when they put a hard surface with a sharp edge ( otherwise known as a table) directly in front of it.
