Hi Mark

I've found a PDF file on them >> here << from the main website >> here <<.

It looks a nice compromise between a Euro motorhome, and an RV with slideouts.

thanks gerald,
yes agree really taken to it the slide out really makes a difference and quality inside is outstanding, and very comfortable, looked at about 30 vans at malvern and this seemed best value for money, esp sitting on a mercedes.

Very nice,but have you looked in depth at it's cargo carrying capacity.Yankee vehicles are notorious for being overweight in their structure with minimal carrying capacity. 8O

Hello,

Mostly, They are Mercedes 3 Litre V6 Diesels, some may have the 3.5 Litre Petrol engine.

There are a few Mercedes/Dodge based models around.

Fleetwood Icon/Pulse
Monaco Covina
Gulfstream Vista Mini Cruiser
Winebago View
Itasca and so on.

Often the biggest problem is Payload

Very nearly bought a Pulse until I found out the payload was 150kG's!. Not much for a 6 Berth Motorhome.

Here is a new model

New Winnie

Don't believe the dealer,e-mail the manufacturer and get it from the horses mouth.I had to correct Travelworld with capacities about the Icon and Pulse rv's,

We were thinking of getting a Pulse last year as well but as already said pay load was very poor and so were the travel seats.

Pity though as they do look very nice.

All in all its a shame about the Yank 'european' style m/homes,I haven't seen one yet with a decent payload and a garage.
