    omg is nice

  2. JOSEPH DEBES on October 27, 2022 at 8:31 am

    Okay nice designs. However my limitation is a maximum outside height of 7’ to fit into my garage, so a pop top is a must. And although you talk about campers available in the US, the Ford Nugget Active and Trail models look like (as of August 2021) they are only available in Europe 😩? Is there a US safety standard they can’t meet? The Diesel engine is not going to be a problem with US consumers. Considering Ford is a US company, I certainly hope they will make it available SOON to the US market… can’t let the EU have all the fun 🤩

    The Mercedes are way too expensive for the average middle class and I wouldn’t buy them also because of the high repair costs in the long run.

  6. Ron on October 27, 2022 at 8:48 am

    Your accent is difficult to understand. I’ll go elsewhere.

  7. Tony Nesta on October 27, 2022 at 8:51 am

    If they could combine the RAM Promaster, RIZE and SCOPE models so that one van can have both a Pop-top and a rear shower toilet; that would be great. Otherwise its a No Buy for me.

  8. C M on October 27, 2022 at 8:54 am

    Nugget is NOT available in US as this video might have you believe.

  9. Steven Bathurst on October 27, 2022 at 9:01 am

    I surprised they don’t have a manual rear slide out for sleeping space for smaller campers vans or a custom add on tent for more living or sleeping space.

    I would love to see nugget in USA

  12. M Jones on October 27, 2022 at 9:06 am

    Thanks for the video. Being in USA I appreciate the fact that you dedicated the content to product that is available in USA. IMHO camper vans cost more in USA than they do in Europe and the quality of USA product is dismal. As a Facebook subscriber to the Winnebago Solis, Thor Rize/Scope, Tellaro/Sequence, and Tranquility/Sanctuary product groups I have read/seen some horror stories about brand new products. For example Winnebago fresh water tanks that expand so much the bulge and break the cabinets they are sitting in, water leaks that destroy the cabinets. Thor across all products, cabinets falling off the wall, doors falling off their hinges/tracks, electrical components that don’t work and water pipes that are not properly connected leading to leaks inside the cabin… etc Overall impression is that the USA RV industry is pushing as much product as it can out the door without any kind of quality control. It is an absolute mad dash for the gold.. while it lasts, leaving a wide trail of devastated consumers owing $80,000+++ for junk slapped together by greedy could care less manufacturers. I’m looking to buy a B van. Considering the current state of affairs, I think I’m going to wait and then when the rush collapses buy something built pre-pandemic.

    Like your content, but didn’t like the commercial in the middle. Please go back to putting the commercial at the end so I can skip it, if I am not interested.

  14. Mike Foehr on October 27, 2022 at 9:13 am

    Don’t buy anything FIAT or Mercedes-Benz…you will be sorry.

  15. Justin Case on October 27, 2022 at 9:14 am

    My favorite is the Pleasure Way Recon 4×4… I really like the dual purpose Murphy Beds: work station or half a bed, truly ingenious. Also, luvv the the top access fridge/freezer position. 40 gallons of fresh water & 400 watt hours of lithium ion batteries. Plus the wet bath has been designed for carrying extra storage. Tho, you did forget to mention that the Recon 4×4 is built in Canada, not the USA. Excellent presentation, but only 2 outta 10 were 4×4. Vaya Con Dios! 😎

    Camper video. Only 30 comments!

  17. ali hamza on October 27, 2022 at 9:17 am

    Very nice video and a very good collection of campervans

  18. Da Goon on October 27, 2022 at 9:18 am

    Meh I’ll sleep in a tent like a man save 200k and my self respect.
    I don’t trust people who poop in their car.

  19. Steven Bathurst on October 27, 2022 at 9:21 am

    I think the camper vans are very nice but way too expensive. I consider my self well off financially. I would never spend over $100,000 for a camper van. You have , maybe $10,000 in camper materials, oven, fridg, cabinets , heating,air conditioning, insulation, wiring, electronics etc. then they charge you $40,000 in assembly (employee wages benefits etc. estimated this can be more or less on materials and your taste. Your better off getting a small class A for that kind of money. Even then those are over priced.

  20. Jeffreydamntreat on October 27, 2022 at 9:23 am

    I paid $290,000 for a 2,700 sq ft house on six acres of land and they want $219,000 for a sprinter van?!!
