One of these is not like the others......what is that bringing up the rear?
All three are different - the middle one is the new cutaway.

Yep, you can tell by the "seam" between the cab and van body.

Wow. So is DUKCSUN a cryptic reference to "ducks under"?

My GTRV top is lower than the SMB top (when popped). I'm 6'1" and I just graze the ceiling - good thing I have no hair. Have you considered CCV tops? Considerably more interior height than SMB.

Cheers,

Believe it or not, the standard PH on the E series is plenty tall. I have an inch or two to spare in ours. I had not looked at CCV since we are pretty diehard SMB folk. But with all the crazy changes and euro switches its not clear what our next vehicle will be. The warrior thing looks very curious, just wish it could be a smidge taller. Although we know we will be spending a lot more time in the next vehicle (which is barely possible). So we aren't ruling out anything including things as rash as Pangea/AM etc.

DUKCSUN = Duck sea-son. Duck Season.

Indeed, but it hardly qualifies as "different" in the context of all three.

Re: What's THAT?????

Having enjoyed the benefits of the Espar diesel appliances for 14 years going back to a gas and propane rig is a non-starter for us. The benefits are just too great and I think the fact that we have continually used ours combined with always using optilube fuel treatment, we haven't had any of the issues that many people complained of about the Espar stuff.

Going to be tough to let it go when the time comes.

Easy to pack your gear. Unpacking? Not so much.

Yeah, I agree, but have you been in that thing? (The SMB Fuso I mean, not a garbage truck). It's amazing. I liked it much more in real life than in the pics. Super roomy, appointed like a fine yacht, and of course, good for nothing offroad, but I digress.

Espar makes gasoline versions, only SMB won't install them because of the liability. So you may not have to completely give it up.

I'm pretty sure it's pretty easy, you just reverse the hydraulics, maybe tip the bin and you're unpacked in seconds.
