“Until this thread, I was even hearing rumors of the demise of the Transit as a basis for class "b's". Glad to hear the rumors aren't true”.

Yes. Thankfully, those rumors aren’t true. WGO shot themselves in the foot by launching the Paseo with a cross-Coach sleeping setup. Being forced to do that on a 22ft long Coach was simply inexcusable. They made a half-hearted attempt to correct that by lengthening the right side Couch ONLY (???). Slow Sales have forced them to stop offering the Paseo. Hopefully, it will return (Same thing happened with the ERA. Was taken off the Market, redesigned and relaunched) with a REAL redesign of the rear sleeping arrangement. The Transit is a solid Chassis for a B Coach. Currently, just the Coachmen CROSSFIT is on the Transit. Hymer/Roadtrek’s Launching of their HAVEN Model will make that two.

First video I've seen of the Roadtrek Haven is from Carey's in Tampa.

Thanks Binny. By far the most we've seen on the Haven, by far.

Did anyone else think is was strange they were there all by themselves?

Comparing it to our Winnebago Paseo on the same chassis, I'll take the Paseo. I really don't like that body cladding, it takes away a lot of ground clearance, and makes any maintenance tasks underneath really difficult for the DIYer. Also the bathroom seemed small. And I don't like that all the windows are on the driver side where the utilities hook up, and the bathroom blocks the window on the side that usually is facing any view.

I don't disagree with you. I've been following the major outfitters and their potential takes on the Transit with great interest. The real winner is the Crossfit. With its superior cabinetry, insulation, and new lithium package, yeah... It's not even close. I'm ready to make my purchase. I believe many will follow.

This particular unit looks like a somewhat of an unfinished prototype. No solar on top or a/c under or on top. I love the floor plan, although it's a similar to one of the Galleria floor plans. Love the long counter tops but absolutely hate the "swoops" graphics on the exterior. Ugh! It's not the 1970's folks, stealthy is where it's at.

I think the way to go if you want the Transit body is the Crossfit. Coachmen seems really invested in making a great product, this from a Travato owner (which I love).

I wonder if they'll offer a Quigley 4wd option?

There was a sign out back to say that it "wasn't finished". I felt cheap feeling materials.....liked the layout.

Default Roadtrek Haven - New Features Announcement

Tampa, FL, USA Jan 22, 2019. Erwin Hymer Group NA announces new Roadtrek Haven features at Florida RV Supershow.

"As the final model in the storied Roadtrek lineage we are thrilled to be introducing these unique and industry leading capabilities" said Mike Snell, Vice President of Sales for Erwin Hymer Group North America:
  • Ford Transit 350 chassis with EcoBoost 3.5 V6 provides 310 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque to outrun auditors driving crappy rental econoboxes.

  • Electric Retractable Step allows you to literally pull the rug out from under suppliers, employees and customers.

  • Full Blackout Curtains keep prying eyes of accountants and authorities at bay.

  • EgoTrek 800 power module personally designed by Jim Hammill's nephew combines the features of lithium, lead-acid, and D-cell battery technology into a unique system unlike any other in the power electronics industry.

  • Ultra-Macerator dices invoices into tiny strips and combines them into a fine sewage slurry to deter forensic document reconstruction.

Erwin Hymer Group is now accepting cash deposits (non-sequential serial numbers) for the Roadtrek Haven truly your new Haven from the harsh realities of the everyday world!

About us Roadtrek is a division of Erwin Hymer Group NA, the largest Class-B VIN producer in North America.
