Wrong forum mass59k. This is the B+ forum. Hopefully the mods will move it

Moved - I'm not a mod but my login still has some admin type abilities for the time being.

Finally saw 59k Saturday.Liked just about everything about it .Microwave could have been in upper cabinet and the Promaster paint job was uneven.First half of van on drivers side was lighter shade of silver than back half.Lovely cabinets and open feel.Beds were perfect for us.We were pretty much left alone so we could really get comfortable and really visualize using it including kicking our shoes off and laying in the beds.So sad when people buy a class b then find out they can't stand sleeping in it. We also saw the ERA slide out model and we both agree that we don't want to build a bed every time we want a nap or sleep at night.I predict a lot of people will regret that decision.

Glad you like it. The beds really are the selling point of the 59k.

The Era 70C is the best floor plan of any class B by a wide margin. The only problem is it's on a Sprinter, which is too narrow for a transverse bed without using the slide out. If I could have that floor plan in a Promaster I would have bought one. Instead I have to build my own.

Class B's should have convertible furniture and multi-use spaces.

Getting off subject here, but the 70C is the slowest selling ERA by a wide margin.
Might as well buy a small class C if you are going to turn your B into a C every night

Apologies for the drift. The deal breaker for most potential buyers according to a dealer I spoke with was the fact that there was nowhere to sleep unless the slide is out. Class C's are fully functional with the slides in.

I like the twin beds in the center with a rear dry bath the best. However, the way the 59K does it I didnt like.

I prefer the beds to be on rollers so they convert in to a bigger bed if needed and have proper seat backs to use as day time seating. They decided against that. So theres really no place to comfortably sit when not laying in bed. Unless you wanna sit in the front seats you already sat in all day. And theres no good table options up front to eat. Could get a portable, but its another thing to bring.

I agree in that there is no place to hang out in the 59k. I only use my bed to sleep in and don't want to sit in bed all day. In my apartment I have a sofa bed because I think normal beds take up too much space. This problem is multiplied in a class B. I don't get these vans with the twin beds in back and no normal seating besides the two chassis seats. I much prefer the dinette in the 59g, or a rear sofa bed in the sprinters. The least important thing to me is the beds, but I am able to sleep on anything. I want space to sit - not in bed.

Completely agree.
