SMB with a SLIDE-OUT!!

I had no idea. This must've been aftermarket, or before SMB got to it. Great idea though. Anyone know for sure who did the work?

Thanks,

Brian

That's not a Sportsmobile build, not even the part that's not slide out.

Re: SMB with a SLIDE-OUT!!

So - who actually built this thing, and why is the owner, who must know better, claiming it's a Sportsmobile? Guess the SMB name is good for sales!

I believe Greatwest Classic supreme used to come with a slide out option.

Re: SMB with a SLIDE-OUT!!

Classic Supreme sounds like it should have sour cream and guacamole, lettuce and tomatoes...

I heard somewhere that SMB doesn't do a slideout because of weight issues, with the GVWR discussions about the Ford vans coming out at/over gross it makes sense, but it's also not their bag so to speak. I have no idea where or when I heard that, save that at one time I was wondering why nobody was doing "B" slideouts.

Slide-out rooms


Great West Vans is proud to be the first Class B manufacturer to offer Slide-Out rooms.
Now I'm wondering if anyone else is/was doing it.

Not another true B. The list is long and growing for B+'s and C's though ... The following are all Sprinter-based with single slide-outs:

Winnebago View; Gulf Stream Mini Vista; Coachmen Prism; Coach House Platinum 241XL; Jayco Precept; Forest River Solera; Dutchmen Dorado; Chateau Citation; Four Winds Siesta ...

Those are just the ones I know of. Pretty cool concept. I haven't seen a true B with a slide, though - except for the one I saw that I included the link for, that is, and the Great West one.

Thanks,

Brian

To be more accurate: not another true B and ZERO true B Sprinters have slide-outs ... The Great West is a Ford.

Thanks,

Brian
