Also saw the ad with address in Germany. Wondering the same thing. It would be great to see their products back in our market.

I guess they may not have a legal address in North America until the purchase of Roadtrek is finalized, but why advertise in a US magazine if your not planning on coming to the US?

I assume that the Westfalia is on its way back... but which one? Even if they get up and running by the end of the summer as they projected to a local TV station up in Ontario, it will likely be a year before anything new comes on the market. First off, they will need to complete any partially built units on the line.

Westfalia went through major pains with Daimler AG ordeal, saved by French they are doing well today. Hymer disaster in NA will be a good lesson for them as well. With heart in the process of getting into NA Westfalia has a potential to rejuvenate this, skewed for elderly folks B-class market in NA. Perhaps changing the B-class formula for young families will allow them to rename a section of the B class to just Campervans.

That's an ambitious lineup. It kind of portends there will nothing of the old Roadtrek but perhaps the facilities and maybe some employees and the goodwill of the Roadtrek brand name if that. Kind of doubt any Roadtrek models of the past will be continued given that ad. That Sprinter may be the reintroduction of the James Cook model Airstream toyed with in 2005. That would be a welcome option in the market.

I would love to see those models come here, but is that ad perhaps from Great Britain? It's in english, but with a German phone number. Also, the Promaster (or is it Pugeot) models do not look like the U.S version. Couldn't blow up the picture enough to see if the models shown are right-hand drive.
