Great West Inc. is a small converter in St. Andrews, MB, Canada located north of Winnipeg and 480 miles due north of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. The convert the Chevy Express chassis to make their Wide Body, the Ford to make their Ford and the Mercedes Benz 3500 170 WB to make their Legend. The is the smallest, the Titan Wide is the widest and the Legend is the longest of Bs. All three share similar features and layouts in enclosed zone living with swivel seating with and choice of bed setups most with a unique tri-fold sofa.

We bought the Sprinter and it is the of this review. This is our B. Our first B was a 2005 Pleasure-Way Sprinter. GWV’s current building on the same model are the RS Adventurous, the Leisure Travel Free Spirit, The Pleasure-Way the Airstream Interstate and maybe the Winnebago ERA. You can convert the model in your own custom through Sportsmobile. The platform is with few options. It is a Mercedes 3500 Sprinter 3.0L engine with automatic So that factor is a given for all the which makes the choice to just concentrate on the conversion and design layouts. They all gone to the 3500 model the dually wheels which you much more load than the 2500 model The manufacturers convert either or Mercedes Benz badged GWV is currently converting Mercedes Sprinters are no longer badged as starting in 2010.

The new Sprinter model starting the 2007 chassis is 10 longer at a few inches wider at 6′-8, has an wheelbase from 158 to 170 and an change of engines from an I5 to a V6. Horsepower to 188 and the torque of 325 lb-ft. The interior increased from about to 6-3.

The old Sprinter was sprung from a era of spartan utility and very felt exactly like it was — a cargo work The new Sprinter is more auto with a tilt steering and loads of comfort conveniences and The engine and cab are much quieter. The V6 engine no longer has that diesel rattling especially acceleration. The ride is softer and The one debit. Less fuel but still net better than the and Fords.

In addition to the dashboard nooks and crannies and shelves the sun visors the GWV Legend adds wooden shelves above the Both driver and passenger swivel (a MB standard) but unlike B models the driver’s seat has room to swivel all the way around to a that can be set in place. A third or passenger seat was not desired.

We upgraded to a new GWV Legend to satisfy desires we accumulated over years of B van use. The first one was getting a new and newer design as described above.

Secondly, we more zoned living in able to utilize the driver and seat swiveled around the back of the van and set up to a temporary table. We have that in our Pleasure-Way.

we desired a fly and mosquito screen so we could come and go from the B opening and closing the large door. We also needed to our cat inside the B. GWV has come up with a enclosure and a sliding screen that is unique to meet desire. I don’t think any manufacturer has addressed this

Lastly, we own a 20 cubic foot receiver cargo carrier in to carry two inflatable kayaks and other items. After a of lengthy trips including one six trip where we used our in only one place we decided a carrier that extends the B another 3 feet just worth the aggravation. It completely where we drove and where we So on one trip we left them at and you guessed it, we passed up many opportunities where we could used the kayaks. So the desire to them inside the B yet not in the way became a desire. Again, GWV came up a unique design no other B has in the electric sofa to give us the area we desired.


The West Van Legend is an electric design without the attending and backrest cushions to fill in for a bed as other Bs have. The sofa and fills in the back area a King bed utilizing three — the seat, the seat and another panel behind the back. I think this is to GWV. You can sit three legally underway and you can adjust the back The wheel wells of the 3500 chassis are carpeted and serve as stools.

The single biggest advantage of the GWV sofa is its tremendous storage. It on side rails so the underside is 12D x 69 x 40 and mostly free of interfering hardware. We can store everything we had under the sofa in our P-W plus we had stored in a 20 cubic foot carrier shell on our hitch In addition it has a 13D x 20 x 27 basement storage. We sleeped in it yet so are hoping on the come it be what we wanted.

There were also a lot of things we were looking to to that almost every B have satisfied such as two batteries, but this B in aggregate the most desires for us and in more ways.
