I'm really impressed with those. Seems like they would be a good bet if you live in the North East. No mention of price though. DO you have to inquire?

Wonder how much they are asking... and it appears that the van has two refrigerators. Interesting concept there.

I just phoned them.

The M18 is $76,344 and the XL21 is $82,010

Of course, it is a Canadian dollars, so subtract 10%.

I have no doubt that they are extremely well build since we know about RV's in Québec. At least 10% of the population head down south in RV's to avoid the winter. ;)

Those are pretty good prices. $73k or so is about what a Winnebago Travato would run if one is very lucky with negotiating... and the Travato has a worse floorplan.

Of course, there is the issue of legally importing one into the US and getting it registered...

Canada and US probably has reciprocity on the PM.

There is a free trade between Canada and United States (and also Mexico). An example: I can go buy anything in the United States, and as long as it is build in the United States (or Mexico), all I have to do is declare it at the border pay the federal and provincial taxes on the product and that's it. Works both ways.

But here's the catch: since cars are usually cheaper in US than Canada, Manufacturers have policies to discourage Canadians to go south of the border to buy their cars. For example, if I buy a PM in Platsburgh, (60 miles from my home), I would simply lose the warranty. Now, I don't know if it works both ways.

But I guess that it is very well possible that the Safari Condo guys could work from a PM bought and plated in US. These guys come from a region where the American market is the prime target for a lot of companies.

By the way, I put a link of this thread on their facebook page and the guy thanked me for doing so. So, they would probably be more than happy to do business with you guys.
