transit-based winnebago paseo

based on an extended high roof transit:

worst feature: 72" bed, as a result of sleeping crosswise.

best features: screens for rear and side doors, and molded use of cubby space. slick:,compress&fit=max&h=670&q=60&w=1000&
overall, looks almost as good as skagistan's build. :D

Lots of new paseos avail and 2018 model yr about to start, so the 90k price will likely start to fall. Seems about 15k more than the travato (yuck, from a reliability/serviceability standpoint) and 15k less than a sprinter (yuck for the same reasons though the layout is the best IMO). Travatos seem to depreciate fairly quickly as well.

Agree on the too small bed, too large bath and lack of a swiveling driver's seat. Expect this will limit sales (the bed at least).

ASSuming 2018 brings a redesigned Ebrake handle permitting the driver's seat to swivel, then many things are possible including a table up front like some sprinters so you don't have to make the bed every night. And a N-S sleeping orientation on a reasonably long bed.
Ya, but ClassCs stink to drive, at least those I've driven, and and any hope of a stealth aspect is gone.
What is the stupid looking chrome bar?

I note that they have not managed to get the awning far enough forward to give rain coverage to the open slider. Pretty sure that's due to the manufacturer's limitation on forward length unsupported.
The paseo has, as an option I assume, a clumsy roof rack and ladder. Perhaps if you need to haul a canoe it has value. Would have thought w/ the rack they could attach the awning any way/where necessary.
The Paseo was first, and recently, Coachman brought out the Crossfit.

The Crossfit has two visual advantages.

1. It comes in Blue Jeans

2. It lacks that stupid looking chrome bar

It also appears to be a little cheaper. Just thought I's add this to the discussion for anyone who is looking for a ready made Class B on the Transit platform.
Crossfit is a knock off by forest river. Reg microwave, no convection. Loose DVD playing in a cabinet vs built in dvd/am/fm/bluetooth/etc. player. Generator on crossfit is about 6' off the ground. Cheaper cushions and curtains. Cheaper head. Ive not been impressed by FR products, YMMV.
One thing is for certain, the 350 HD extended HR is the chassis of choice. I wish now that I would have bought one instead of my 148 standard length. The extra two feet really makes a difference. If I wear mine out I will go that way.
2ft is approx 20% increase in space. Big deal esp if you are including a head/shower. Parking is more of a pain of course.

Does anyone know if the DRW model uses the same tire/rim at every location?
