Feb 17, 2011 - Buying Miranda, Technical    6 Comments

Found My Next Rig!!! Canadian Manufacturers Rule the Market!

Canada’s very own Triple E RV has a new B+ out for 2011. Watching the video and reading the specs, I got the very same shiver down my spine that I did when I found the blog advertising Miranda for sale. It’s the Regency GT24.

I’ve often complained that there is nothing on the market today that is worth what Miranda would be worth today, about $112,000. The Regency GT24’s MSRP is $111,000 and is a higher quality rig in a smaller package! It has the same Ford E450 chassis and V-10 engine , the solid wood cabinetry, the house-grade plumbing features, and the huge glass-enclosed shower and dressing room-style bathroom. It adds true four-season living with enclosed tanks, extra-insulated walls, dual pane windows, and two heat sources.

This 24′ rig boasts an easy to drop murphy bed, which would be a livable compromise for me since the bed can be left made-up when stowed,  a built-in computer desk with a window in front of it, and an entrance closet! The kitchen makes up for lacking a propane oven by offering a dedicated pantry, a pot drawer, huge full-extension drawers, usable counter space, and a garbage can integrated into the counter.

Knowing what I know about today’s RV market, my needs, and Triple E, if money grew on trees I would be on the phone with Triple E right now placing an order!

Needless to say, my upgrade plan for Miranda has changed radically. I’m going to continue maintaining her properly for as long as possible, but I’m going to nix any plans for major projects, like having her repainted, now that I know that she can be replaced with no compromise on quality.

I am in no way in a rush to replace Miranda, not with the remodel being done and still having a lifestyle suited to a larger rig, but it’s nice to know that my next rig is out there.

  • I would not describe this as a B+. It looks very much like my 24′ Class C 2000 Harney Desperado.

  • The video for the 29′ B+ explains the difference. A C-class has an overhang bunk, the B-class doesn’t. Your rig’s bigger because of that bunk space, whether you use it for sleeping or storage.

  • I am going to book mark the site. Maybe in about 8 years I will be able to afford it used. It is very beautiful.

    The Salem RV show next weekend. I will be spending many hours there dreaming. You are infectiou.

  • infectious.

  • When you can’t dream any longer, you die. Italian proverb.

  • I’ve seen it on the internet and now in person. It’s my favorite!!! Now I just have to get to retirement!!
