    See... If that was a eurobox, the seats would have folded down the same BUT they would have been used as a bed with a couple of added cushions to fill in the gaps..
    Absolutely LOVE the fact they have got that bit further and it has a pucka bed that goes over said seats
    Nicely thought out that ....

    Brilliant vehicle and brilliant presentation.

    But it must be a bit heavy/thirsty.

    That'll do nicely for me ... luxury comfort for two is all I need. Just need to sort out who person 'two' might be! Oh, and save up a little pocket money. And RHD ... unless I full time abroad. Now there's a thought.:thumb:

    Its on a sprinter chassis Brian so about 24mpg. Great conversion, though don't see the point of the window behind the bed, just an extra potential souce of leaks.

    Its 5 tons on a Mercedes 3l V6 so should be no problem, the beauty is it has a slideout to increase the lounge area. Why don't Euro manufacturers do it on their heavier motorhomes the Mercedes based chassis is presumably produced over here .
    With the likes of Carthago etc at around £150k , a more spacious lounge would make them much better value for money.

    This one is Canadian and it shows that a slideout can be used on a Euro chassis.
    Pity the manufacturers over here seem to lack the design ability to incorporate this on their models.

    Makes you wonder why they have waited so long.
    One of the reasons we bought our RV was for the size of accommodation made possible by the twin slides.
    We seriously looked at The likes of Burstner and Carthago etc, but the RV was far better for value and design.

    Loved it ... but why on earth have a window which is hidden by the bed and then is in the way when you want to sit up in bed! Nuts!:ROFLMAO:

    They can and some small one's do :thumb:It comes down to price :Eeek: bare in mind the yanks pay a lot less than us for most things in life.Be that a tv or a M/H ::bigsmile:
    Take a look at some of the smaller guys out there producing some nice conversions far cheaper than the mainstream big boys :thumb:
