Moving up to SMB

My wife and I are long-time VW Bus campers, having started with a 1969 Westy and then a 2000 Eurovan camper which we've used for the past 17 years. With retirement approaching, it is time to move on. Last Friday we delivered our new ride to Sportsmobile to receive a 150S plan conversion with the penthouse. It's going onto a 2016 MB sprinter crew van, equipped with 4 cyl diesel and DSG tranny.

We're very excited about the additional space as well as the power and ease of driving, but mostly we're excited about sleeping in a double bed!

Glad to have found this forum!

Welcome.... and you're not alone. Lots of ex-VW folks around here, once they realize it's nice to have a little extra space and drive up hills too!

...and get cheap parts and repairs, too! (Speaking as an ex-1988 Vanagon Westy owner.)

We're picking up our SMB in less than 2 weeks (and the Eurovan has been sold) so we're pretty excited!
