IdleUp, while I have not always agreed with your professional takes on the class B world, you've hit on something that struck me about 18 months ago. I have had the benefit of driving many class B vans in the last two years. I help a very close friend with a moderately sized rv show in Northern California. Truth be told, I volunteer. But I love the atmosphere. I love seeing all the new rigs.. Meh, you get it.
So the thing I love the most, is driving all these rigs. Someone has to get them a hundred plus miles to the location. Quite frankly, it's a lot fun. My take: I truly enjoy most offerings from all the "big three" manufactures ".. Promasters, Transits, and Sprinters. I have been incredibly impressed by the ride quality of the Transits. It's a good balance of the tech that many of us want when spending over 100k, with a marginally better ride (Maybe better than marginal) than the Sprinters. I won't get into diesel vs. gas. That seems like a completely different argument. I personally like gas, though I own neither one.
Here's hoping that the Transit starts seeing more offerings for people that want higher end gassers. I'm thinking that we, the consumers, will only benefit from such a transformation.
