If I understand correctly, the Orion and the REV are only cosmetically different. Aren't they both owned by the same parent company?

Yeah, looked at both of them at the Hershey show. Same lay out and functionality. Very appealing design, but poor Forest River build quality.

Saw the Compass at Pomona. The bed is a flip-up arrangement with a sofa, or a cushioned seat resembling a sofa, underneath.

As to the Orion and Rev, I spoke with Phil King, Coachmen's class C rep at Pomona. He said Coachmen will continue to build Orions on the remaining ProMaster chassis they have in stock, and will then switch to the gas Transits. They have 30 some Transits on order for this year and 30 some for next year. As far as he knew, Dynamax will continue to build the Rev on the ProMaster.

Of course, the Transit is a dually, which is good, but the front seats don't swivel, which is bad.

They had a one-and-done Orion on a Transit diesel which sold at the show. King said they have no plans to build more diesels.

So that one on the diesel chassis was going for $69k? Man, at those prices, they are going to have a winner on their hands.

The gas chassis should be $5-6k cheaper I would think.

Wish 30+% discount from MSRP was standard in the industry. Or maybe they just jacked up the MSRP to look good
