Default Count of Sprinter-based RV ownership by brand

Howdy Folks -

Are you as curious as I am as to just how many Sprinter-based RV's there are out there? And perhaps just as interesting, how many of each brand?

I'm going to try (for the first time) to attach a poll to this thread that lists the top 9 (in my humble opinion) brands plus an other category (polls only allow 10 options).

Let's hear from all the owners out there!

Zach

It's been very interesting to follow the results on this poll.

In general it seems that Airstream and Winnebago / Itasca have been in the lead since the start. Maybe it's time to start polls in each of the Brand categories where there are multiple models?

Let us know what RV you have!

Zach

Just joined the forum. We have a Leisure Travel 210A Free Spirit built on a 2003 Sprinter chassis. It is badged as a FreightLiner. We bought it used a little earlier this year.

We bought it for tailgating at college football games and for touring. We haven't had a chance to do much touring yet, but beginning Labor Day weekend, we used it for 5 straight weekends for tailgating purposes. It's great for tailgating. We keep it stocked with food, beverage and clothes. We're always ready to go at a moments notice.

Look forward to reading and maybe sometimes posting. I'm still trying to learn as much about the Sprinter as I can.

We sold our '03 Winnebago/Itasca Sunstar and purchased an '05 Forest River MB Cruiser. We use it for everyday travel, occasional camping, and to visit family up north with the dog.

If you could add an MB Cruiser category, even though its discontinued, it'd be interesting to see how many people have them.

Howdy LuvMyMB -

When I set up the poll I had to make some tough choices as I only had 8 maximum categories available.

Looks like I could have left Great West Vans and/or Xplorer Motor Home for the other category and include Forest River! Maybe we can run another poll in future and shift the categories around.

For now, the best way to get a feel for how many MB Cruisers there are here at Sprinter-Forum would be to post in the Forest River category: http://www.sprinter-source.com/forum...splay.php?f=71.

I agree - let's find how many MB Cruisers there are and then let's work to keep 'em on the road!

Howdy Folks -

Looks like we've got a real horse race going here!

Airstream, Pleasure-Way and "Other" are running neck and neck to place . . .

Leisure Travel Vans and Winnebago / Itasca are tied for first place!

Let us know what those "Others" are - I know I'm curious!

Zach

Howdy Richard -

And it looks like we need to get more Airstreamers to register their presence!

We are losing to LTV, Pleasure-Way, AND Winnebago/ Itasca just now!
