Default American Cruiser

Does anyone know anything about these units? The were last manufactured in 2001 I believe.

I've run across a very nice one with 51K miles on it. It's unique with a rear entry. It does have a rather high roof, kind of like the older Airstreams and actually looks exactly like the roof line on the Airstream Westfailia that was built on the Sprinter chassis.

Had I found a good one of these for sale I'd very likely be writing from inside of it instead of my mini "C". It was banging my head on the aisle air conditioner in a Pleasure-Way Excel that deleted the B-Class from my consideration. But with 6'3" headroom...my C only has two inches more. That would have been fine.

Not sure about black tank size in the normal config if 12 gallons is larger. :P

Howdy All I just joined the forum and I hope that you can help me. I found a 2000 american cruiser on line here in tx and think it is a good floorplan for me but the miles 103,000 on a 2000 mod veh. scares me,also they are asking $18,995 for it . Sooo. my questions are does anyone think good or bad about this one and do you know of any other units like it for sale?
Thanks Mike
