Default Safari Condo Promaster MX

I just picked up my Safari Condo Promaster MX and drove it home from Quebec City, Quebec. Thought some might be interested since they are rare in the US with only one other in IL and two on order for delivery in 2016 and 2017. I delivered the diesel Promaster to Safari Condo in late Sep and it took them about 6 weeks to complete the van. It took me two long days to drive the 1350 miles back from Canada to Alabama. Below is a pic taken at the Alabama welcome center next to the Saturn I rocket.

Several more pics in my driveway.



On the way back I stopped at a truck stop and had the van weighed. With a full tank of diesel and me not in the driver seat, the weight was exactly 7000lbs. The conversion added about 1800 lbs to the van. I averaged 24.5mpg on the trip home after averaging 27mpg driving the empty van to Canada.
I am looking forward to making use of this new camper.

Congrats!

Yes, I'm sure people will be interested as I've seen the question of how to get a Safari Condo in the US asked before.

With 24.5 mpg I'm sure you'll use it as often as you can.

Default Safari condo family

Congratulations!

Very cute vehicle. Is it the first MX Safari Condo that will live in the US?


Saw one on the street the other day. The MX that's heading south that will star in a Go-Van film.

We bought the first XL Flex that came out of the plant and love it. Enjoying every moments, like this fabulous boondocking we did in the Magdalen Islands.

GeorgeB,
Thanks! My MX is the second one in the US with 2 more on order as of the end of last month. I really like your Flex, saw one on the showroom floor in Levis. The pics you posted of your Flex on the Promaster forum influenced me to look at Safari Condo and eventually buy one. I am looking forward to taking trips like your boondocking in the Magdalen Islands.

I have only owned the van for a week so I haven't had a chance to use the refrigerators. I do a lot of camping with a group of friends who usually ride bikes and tent camp. We cook a lot so the 7cf refrigerators will come in handy. Also like to tailgate at Alabama games and end up cooking a lot. Really am looking forward to our first camping trip next month.

Is there any privacy when using that toilet?

There is a sliding curtain between the toilet and the front cab area. Of course all the windows have sliding shades.
