Any opinions on Winnebago Revel

Yes one in a bright color for winter operations like ski-ing, and one in a summer like color--For summer!

WITH hand creme dispenser don't forget for uz men who drink "weht wine" and Georgio cosmetic cabinet for "those working men" in designer coveralls!

Not similar in function though. The ERA is a luxury RV. The Revel is much more suited to carrying gear. Where would I put my spare moto wheels, toolboxes, wet wetsuits, etc, in the ERA? If you don't "get" the Revel, you don't need the Revel. If you need the Revel, you don't "get" the ERA.

Different strokes.

Also Revel is about 100K fully loaded - I enquired from dealers
While not chump change it seems to be in ball park to a lot of 4x4 Sprinter based DIY's considering that a new loaded 4x4 sprinter is about 55K

I watched the video tour, it's way too cramped inside for me. No thanks.

Confirmed. 100K plus tax and reg. I just signed the contract. Delivery will be around 11/10.

BTW, I just posted my first post! Only took me 5 years to get with the program.��
