What is so wrong with the tried and true like rear entry, 3 way refrigerators, a six gallon hot water tank and a ( sometimes noisy) Onan generator?
I have been reading the postings here concerning Sprinters. I conclude that I am either not smart enough to own one and understand its complexities, or in the alternative maybe I just really enjoy using my Chevy and not worrying about such deep engineering/mechanical procedures and worries. We have owned Bs and Cs for thirty-five years and got each one to enjoy, travel and just plain enhance life.
Rear doors were great!
I'm with you there. I get so grumpy when I see newer rigs, and it seems the adage "they don't make them like they used to" greatly applies. Everything from the old Airstream vans with the loft, the vans that RV style door entrances (not noisy sliding doors), propane fridges that had thicker tubing and could run without battery... all for a fraction of the price that a new rig has.
