Islander wide body class B

Postby abacusblack » Mon Oct 13, 2008 6:32 am

Hi Everyone. Wondering if anyone knows anything about a wide body class B made by "ISLANDER" I think they are made in Newfoundland Canada and they look like a well made unit but I would like to hear from anyone who may own one or has owned one in the past. Thanks. [/img]

It was being made in St John's NL but I don't believe they are making any now

This unit looks like an Islander

Thanks for your reply Vango. From the response so far I was beginning to feel that I was the only one who has seen one of these class B vans. I just bought a 1985 Dodge b that looks like an Islander in Chilliwack B.C. It has the wide body and large overhead bunk. I would enjoy hearing from other Islander owners as I would like to learn more about this model. Happy Holidays to all. :wave:

I met the owners of this company a few years back when I worked for Woodalls in Atlantic Canada. I have driven by their dealerships in NL a few times but I don't recall seeing them the last couple years that I was over on the rock.
There are a few floating around the Maritimes

I added 22 photos of Islander Wide Body Class B vans to the Class B Forum photo gallery. Here's the direct link:

These are photos from around 1999 & 2000. The motor homes were made by Wide Body RV Industries in Newfoundland (as mentioned in previous posts above)

Also, I have attached a specification sheet in pdf format. These are the specs from around 1999 & 2000. You have to be logged in to see and download attachments.

I recently purchased a 1995 dodge Islander supreme bclass.It was made in B.C. It's a great van,but didn't come with an owners manual. Wonder if anyone knows where I can purchase one?

I tried googling "dodge islander class b" without the year and got quite a few hits.
You might try sending some emails to the vendors, or other owners, and inquire
where they got theirs, if their vans didn't come with one. Some folks might be
willing to send you a photocopy if you can't get an original copy.

(where the heck do owner's manuals go, when vans get bought and sold????? :shock: )
It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
