What do you think of the Advanced RV Sprinter?
 
I was just sent a sneak peak of the Oceans One. The first Sprinter model Advanced RV is showing the public.
What do you think of it?
I was hoping they would offer a none propane option. So far, they have not shown a floor plan that I can find.

Interested to see and hear more. Since I'm just an hour away from them, I contacted them through their site first, and got a response from Mike. I had also mentioned this forum and that I'd be letting others know about them through here, to which he replied he'd be interested in visiting and checking into the forum.

I wrote a second email asking about possible servicing of other sprinter vehicles as well as a few other questions which arose as a result of his first response to me. Never heard another word.

I will wait awhile, and wait to see their other models on the site before venturing over there.

I must say, I love the underfloor heating idea.

The Ocean One floor plan is now published on their website. It closely resembles the Great West Van Legend EX.

They are converter manufacturers not a service dealership. I've been to their facilities. I thought they were rather magnanimous in mentioning they were willing to work with other Class B owners on a screen door solution. It wasn't clear to me if that was just design and material sales or actual installation. But other than that screen door mention which I think was just their enthusiasm showing, I would think they would have a big task and effort ahead to convert their own Bs and would have no time or personnel that I could see that would service other converted Bs. That simply is not their business.

It's a startup company. Time will tell, but knowing the owner and Mike Ellis, if you have some desires for a B design and what it should have, I think they more than most would be willing to listen and work with you. Interestingly, that kind of interplay is pretty much how the company came about.

Swap the lav/shower & fridge/cabinets and you have a FourWinds Ventura.

I think the Ventura has the slight advantage of placing the fridge & microwave across from the range.... so the galley is more compact. Disadvantage is that it may put a bit more weight aft than the Advanced design. Also, locations of the grey/black water tanks may be more forward on the Ventura putting more weight forward of the center of the vehicle. FWIW.

Advanced design seems to have more aisle width.

Moot points as Thor/FourWinds doesn't make Ventura any more.

Appears that they sacrificed the larger refrigerator that the GW Legend EX enjoys and put a permanent sink in the bath, but knowing Mike Ellis and his background, possibly he decided "Why change a good thing!".
Hmmmm...........do we sound a bit biased regarding the GW Legend EX??!! :smilewink:
