I looked at the Pleasureway Lexor today. It was nice. Shower for me was sorta useable if I sat down. Rest of the coach was nice. I expect it will sell higher than the Zion. My main concern today was did it feel roomy and the answer was yes.

We had the Airhead toilet in our 32 foot sailboat. Loved it! Was able to get rid of the holding tank under the V-berth.

So does a red or yellow Travato meet the stealth requirement [/quote]


The 2016's also come in a Granite color (charcoal). That's the one we have on order.

The 2015 Pleasureway Lexor single bed option has 26" wide by 76" long beds on both passenger and drivers side. Narrow compared to Roadtrek or Winnebago. I think 28-1/2 would be fine too but maybe not 26"

I would prefer 26" wide over 28". The total width of the 59G bed is 46". The Winnebago Era 70C's bed is 52" wide. Beds are great but I prefer the space elsewhere.

The wider the bed. The wider the storage beneath and Promaster's are wide vans. Remember . You spend 7 or more hours sleeping so it might as well be a comfortable sleep. Think of resale as well.

So that is why I did not like the 59K. 30" wide is unnecessary in such a small van. The bed setup is completely odd, in my opinion. At least make them convertible sofas like everyone else does.

Ah, so Winnebago is appealing to the "Sleeping" crowd with the 59k? Brilliant.

Class B manufacturers should be experts at convertible/multipurpose furniture. Leisure Travel Vans is arguably the best at taking customer feedback and adding those changes into future models. This is where the slide out and Murphy bed designs came from.

Lichtsinn RV had a great live webcast with the 59K. It was very informative especially since you could ask interactive questions. An interesting option that Licthsinn can install is a collision avoidance system. The cost is $1000. I have this feature on my Jeep and it is excellent option. Also the portable Zapp solar panels can fit under one of the beds.

I was surprise when they said the fuel mileage diesel vs gas was 10%. I thought that was low.

I stopped watching those after hearing too many inaccurate answers. What do you expect from an RV dealer??

Spend a little time on promasterforum.com and you will know the difference is around 20%.

You just need to set your expectations. As potential buys we study this vehicles in detail that the average sales guy will never know especially since he has more products to sell than just this one. I only caught one error and that was caught by a few of us and corrected when we asked for clarification. The beauty of the webcast was to ask questions as they were going through the RV.

When I saw my 59K in person, the first sales guy passed me on to their van specialist as he realized I had done my homework. Even then I knew more than the van specialist on some of the particular models.

Mass59K - congrats on your purchase. Did you consider purchasing a used Era/Roadtrek/Pleasureway Sprinter based class B vs a new Travato 59K? Buying a couple eyar old Sprinter based class B RV appears to put them in the price range of a new Travato.

Where do people find used "B"s for decent prices? The cheapest I've seen an Eurovan upfit is 47k for a 10 year old model. I've found that the price difference buying used is so nominal, that I might as well just buy new so I have a full 10 years before the rig gets booted from most Texas RV parks.

The word "Cheap" and Class B's don't go together. When you have a specialty item with very low production (compared to mainstream RV's) and more demand than the market can fill, the price is up there. I'm hearing there's almost a year wait to get a Pleasure-way built, and I would presume the other makers are the same. Used market follows the same pattern. Many owners keep their units for years too. If you're looking for a Sprinter, that makes things that much more difficult, as they seem to be more in demand than the gas units (and much more scarce to start with, especially the ones built on the 3500 chassis which is what you want).

Our 59k has controller on roof for 3 panels. We only have one due to the kyak racks. Solar seems to keep the batts up fine.
