Really nice van, and looks great also, but given the price in $237,000 to $250,000-plus range, itís difficult to imagine there is much market for such a motorhome.

Regardless of cost, there are a couple of design features I find unacceptable, and itís not because they are from Winnebago, but rather because of the Sprinter van being so narrow ó which applies to some Thor floor plans also.

The beds are only 26 inches wide, and when made as a King, only 66 inches wide overall. As a King/Queen itís fine, but the 26-inch width as Twins makes them almost unusable, hence forcing conversion every night (unless left as Queen/King.

The bathroom at 24 X 35 inches is also rather narrow, but when considering how Mercedes Sprinter vans tapper towards top, it makes it quite uncomfortable for normal-size men to stand in the bathroom.

Placing refrigerator and microwave under counter height on any motorhome are deal breakers for me, but itís even worse with an extremely narrow aisle. Iíd probably end up kneeling on floor to look for stuff in back of fridge.

By comparison, the Winnebago EKKO which is the same 23-feet in length has useable Twin beds that can also convert to King, a refrigerator at chest height, overhead microwave (I know some prefer at knee height), and due to vertical walls, much larger overhead storage cabinets and a bathroom which is much easier to stand in. And one would save about $70,000 or more.

The BOLDT has great advantage that itís a van body, which in itself has a lot of value. Too bad they are not as wide as ProMaster vans.

Anyways, a close look at BOLDT and how it compares with similar EKKO highlights why B-Box are becoming popular.

I saw the price on this unit at $187,000 not $237,000-250,000. Even at $187,000 a larger Class C or small Class A might be a better one in that price range.

Paul, that must be the discounted price. MSRP starts at $237,098.


I found it interesting that a couple of websites mention this as a lower and more affordable price. I believe previously they were even more expensive; some exceeding $250,000.
