Yup, those new class B's can get quite spendy, north of 300K. For some reason, they are a lot cheaper in the EU, likely a volume thing. I bought our 2000 Roadtrek before the economy took off, about 6-7 years ago. It was quite neglected. Got it for $10,500. It still looks a bit tough but the mechanicals and appliances are tip top and I stay after maintenance. It now has north of 192k miles on it and still runs a treat and gets an average of 13.4 mpg pulling the trailer including quite a bit of mountain driving, quite frugal. It has enough tank capacity(35g fresh) to last two weeks boondocking. I love traveling this way and am taking off again next Tuesday for another three month adventure up to MN then out west with the Versys in tow.

Sotty about the off topic thing.

Later.
I see Oregon is not filled in. Man, you need to ride Oregon! Quite varied from east to west.

Some bucket list roads.

I've ridden there on three trips, two of them quite extensively just last year and the year before. Hit Multnoma Falls(and the others) about two weeks before the fires. Quite the difference after the fires.

I just haven't gotten around to updating.

Steve - IF you're going near "Going to the Sun" (PROBABLY closed right now!), there's an EXCELLENT road from St Marys S on the E end, MN 89 to MN 49, to East Glacier. It's OPEN RANGE so watch for cattle!

BTDT. That is a rocking route.

Likely not heading to the NW this year, tentatively next year, unless I head to Newfoundland/Labrador. Still up in the air.

Colorado and high country in NM and AZ this year after a visit to MN(Minnesnowta). Back in late August then leave early September for three rallies, northern GA, Missouri Ozarks, then central Arkansas. That trip will be with a tent on the back of the Versys.
