My name is Tom and I just moved to Florida from Las Vegas and my wife and I are ready to do some traveling more than we did in Nevada. We do not stay at one location very long and most of the time we do not like to tow anything. We have been looking at Class B Vans since we feel this would best fit our needs. They are very expensive and right now very hard to find one. Since the BT Cruiser 5210 is smaller than a Class C we thought it might instead of a Van. I would like to get the thoughts of the forum on my assessment. I would also like to ask if the AC in the 5210 is run by a thermostat? This is very important to me as I have found a unit in Oklahoma and in contract to buy it but the lack of a thermostat would be a deal breaker. I would like to thank you for your help.
