Good point, so stop smoking it next time, maybe you won't be so negative.

Van is detachable. You can swap it with the one your friends don't like.

You have GOT to be kidding! I must have hit pretty close to the mark to get you this riled up. Of all the most arrogant, asinine comments I have ever read on a public forum, this takes the cake! The day will never come when you can order me to stay out of a thread.

Here in East Mongolia we have a different requirements for Residential stuff.
So even Sprinter will meet the demand.

Merlin,

I like the layout and build quality of the Coach House Platinum 241XL. However the power systems are very old school. A 15 gallon propane tank runs the LP stove, 3 way refrigerator, on demand water heater, and the generator. The electrical layout consists of a 45 amp converter/charger with a standalone 1000w inverter that runs off a maximum of 2 batteries. The fresh water tank of 25 gallons is very small.

All of this can be overcome by using the ideas from Advanced RV. Are you sure Coach House will take on this especially the engine second alternator to eliminate the noisy generator? If they will then they will become the B+ equivalent of Advanced RV and you will have a state of the art RV that meets your requirements.

A Coach House 241XL is expensive to begin with and going to an all electric design will probably increase the price. But quality does not come cheap.

Keep us informed.

Barry

It was arrogant and direct because your reply was arrogant. I never said that I'm trying to fit a duplex in a 24' RV. What kind of stupid comment was that?

I was talking about having respectable size sections like big bedrooms and bathroom but I NEVER talked about trying to fit a 20' X 20' bedroom into a 8' X 8' RV bedroom.

When I talked about residential bathroom, I was NOT talking about having a big bath tub and all, I was talking about having a decent size bathroom where the shower, the toiler bowl and the sink are NOT squeezed together in a closet size bathroom.

I mean did I REALLY have to say this? Did you really and I mean REALLY THOUGHT that I was trying to fit a real big house into a Unity?? REALLY?

Maybe the term "residential" was not the right word to use but I thought you guys would get it but it looks like you didn't.

I said that in the Coach House RV, that's EXACTLY what they have done (nooo, not trying to fit a duplex in a Sprinter) but to have all 4 sections of the RV (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen galley and dining room) built with NO compromises.

You get a BIG Queen Bed in the back, a BIG separate bathroom with the shower on the other side, a nice BIG Dinette to sit 4 and a BIG galley.

Btw Steve from CH told me today that I can buy a MB Sprinter chassis in Canada and ship it to them for the conversion so the dream is still alive.

And stay tune folks because in my next post, I will teach Don how to squeeze a 10 story appartment building in a 1969 VW Bus (I'm sure he will reply "..but but but....you can't fit a 10 story appartment building in a 1969 VW Bus ").

Just watch...

Merlin
