10 New Ford Campers Posing Affordable Competition to German Motorhome Platforms

Lately, Mercedes and, to some extent, VW seem to have monopolized the market when it comes to platforms for recreational vehicles. But we are convinced that Ford should not be taken off your radar if you are searching for a camper that will combine affordability, reliability and the wide network of maintenance shops. Moreover, if you are shopping from the US, it would be simply irresponsible not to even consider supporting the native manufacturer. Today we will show you the newest models of Ford RVs that are available on the market and try to shaken the German dominance.

    The title says 10 new Ford campers as affordable and then they go show us $1.5 million Earthroamer. I don’t know about you guys but that is not cheap.

    VanDoit so over priced and not at all comfortable.

    I have a Ford Transit Diesel on my Thor Gemini. POWERFUL. And with its improved front end suspension…it drives like an SUV. I’ve had both a GM and RAM powered B Class RV’s. I prefer Ford!

    I would hire a local carpenter guy and make what I want for about 10K. Those are yuppy rigs.

    Thank you for introducing me to the Ford selections. I have been looking at the revel for a few months. I think you may have changed my mind. Now I have to figure out where I can test drive one of the Ford Class B vans.
