    A new breed of Class B motorhomes, also known as camper vans, have made the Class B segment the fastest growing in the industry: Class B sales have increased 19.7% percent year-to-date according to the latest report from Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI). Winnebago Industries Inc. is the top-selling manufacturer through September with 33.9% of the Class B market.

    But like RVs themselves, RVers come in all shapes and sizes, and many newcomers look nothing like those stereotypes. It is easy to picture older couples in lawn chairs, exchanging casserole recipes outside their mansion on wheels.

    But they’re also Boomers who enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, climbing, bicycling and paddlesports, but are looking for something a little more comfortable than the cold hard ground after a long day of outdoor play.

    Guess that is what we call a PVC or Panel Van Conversion, just to save any confusion.

    While sitting having breakfast in T4 at Heathrow in Weatherspoons:xsmile: I got chatting to a couple from California. They were RVs but had recently traded down to one of these, he thought it was the best thing since sliced bread apart from the auto box on the Macedes that had been back to the makers three times to be fixed.

    Do they come with the base ingredients for crystal meths as an optional extra?

    A quality US RV manufacturer meeting the needs if the EU market and probably some in the US.
    Be nice if Mercedes could live up to their name.
