Congrats! Keep us posted about the new rig. Do you have any other sprinter/conversion experience?

No, only online education from here and YouTube. I am familiar with Sportmoble. They are built where I live and they are first class. My decision on the Revel was the based on price and availability.

Congrats, Fresno!

Curious if anyone knows what brand and model of roof rack/ladder and windows are used on the Revel?

I like this van as well but for me it would have to be in the longer wheelbase.

The insulated and hydronic heater fresh water (and heated, but not insulated grey) are nice features. Wonder who made the tanks for them?

Curious
What features do you think are missing in the Revel. Do you think it is possible to install a roof rack on the Revel that you could walk on. I realize that it has solar panels on the roof?

I'd bet those are Dometic Seitz windows

Seems really more for day trips and one nighters. Props for creativity though.

a big question is how much payload is left with full tanks? Once you start adding gear it may be overweight quite quickly.

Regardless, props for Winnebago finally catching on. Probably the new ownership though.

I have been told it is exclusive to W by Summit Products. The cross bars and awning are Fiamma.

I love this build. I was worried that the $135K ask price was 'starting' and the real price would be much higher. The price you got makes me actually want to call a dealer and try to make a deal. Any news on the options and upsell? Did you get the 9" display on the dash or the AC unit? How much extra were they? Any other news on the options?

I've had great luck with my 2002 VW Eurovan Camper and this looks like the rig I want to replace it with. My only wish is that they made this with a pop top like what you can get from Sportsmobile. Then I could sleep 4 and still get it into my garage with a 10' door.
