5.0
This RV is heavy and feels it. Everything works as advertised and it is comfortable with lots of comforts. The battery runs things very well and you can go dockless because of that. The refrigerator is good, the heater is really nice when needed as is the air conditioner. The bathroom is big enough that you don't feel stuffed in. The shower is big enough to clean without shower curtain "cling". Lighting inside and out is really nice, the TV works, the fresh water and grey water tanks are big. Sitting outside under the awning is just what RVing is all about. This is a very versatile vehicle due to it's size. This is a fun RV.

My wife and I purchased this RV in the summer of 2020 during the beginning and relatively unknown impacts of the pandemic. We were interested in visiting our first grandchild and were unwilling to fly from the Washington DC area to Oakland CA at that time. After searching for a rental and unable to find one that met our needs, we ended up buying the Carado Banff, primarily due to the features we wanted (smaller footprint, full wet bath, and ease of drivability since we had never RV'd before), and the savings over other brands we looked at including Thor, Winnebago and Mercedes. The Thor model we were interested in was only available new (at least 6-month wait plus $30,000 more than the Carado Banff), A similarly equipped used Winnebago would have been about $30,000 more because the solar option alone was over $20,000) and the Mercedes was nearly double the price of the Carado Banff. The Carado Banff exceeded all our expectations. After just the first day of our maiden cross-country journey, we fell into a comfortable routine consisting of 1) waking up, 2) disconnecting all connections at the RV park while my wife made breakfast (no boondocking this trip!), 3) fueling up, checking tire pressure, driving until lunch and gas (NO restaurants), driving until dusk to RV park, 4) making all connections while my wife prepared dinner, 5) setting up for bed, 6) enjoy sunset and starry nights, 7) sleep, 8) start over at step 1. This trip we were focused on the "prize" at the end of our 7-day 3,000-mile journey - my son, his wife and our beautiful grandson. We did little hiking, sightseeing and touring during the trek. We thought we'd need to stop for groceries to supplement what we packed but found we did not need to stop at all for groceries. A super-plus during the beginning of the unknown pandemic and one less place for us to remain socially distant. On our return journey, we were so comfortable with the ride of the RV, that we made a detour to visit cousins we had not seen since the last wedding in the family. Drivability was easy. The length of the RV was no issue. We found driving on the highway, in rural areas and in the city a breeze. Cruise control was a great feature used on long stretches of boring highway drives. Stability at high speeds (where the local speed limit was 80 MPH) and even during an inclement and unexpected snowstorm in early September was also excellent. The height of the RV needed to be minded due to access to some areas (no drive-thrus at fast food locations) and susceptibility to windy conditions which were infrequent, but manageable. Multiple side view mirrors (all adjustable with a simple door mounted switch) and the added back-up camera minimized my visibility concerns. Gas mileage was better than expected. Sleeping was comfortable, heating and air conditioning was excellent. During drives, the standard Ram 2500 Promaster heating/air conditioner system was more than adequate. Overall, it was what we considered an "ambitious adventure" and one that the Carado Banff fulfilled each and every day of our journey.

The class-B Carado Banff is the perfect RV for anyone new to camper vans. It is easy to drive and will fit into most standard parking spaces. This 20' van packs in a lot of value. The Dodge ProMaster is solid; easy to drive and repair.

The Sunlight 1 was ideal for myself and goldenretrievers. I bought it because I needed a reliable way to cart us out of hurricane land and go to the park or vet. I moved 2800 miles with it; the pets and I were very comfortable going down the road ( hotel to hotel.) 30 months after owning it, it sat for 5 weeks in my driveway because my groomer had a family emergency and due to the holidays, and in the mid 40's and rain, it smoldered for 20 minuets, according to the security camera, erupted into fire and burnt intensely landing the engine on the ground. Had I parked the engine towards the house, my house would have caught fire. I was home, the dog alerted me, firemen came within 15 minuets. Amen. It was a joy to drive and I really miss it. There were no lithium batteries kept on board. The AGM batteries are hard to locate under the center body of the truck. The recall for engine cooling fan in Dec 2019 was known, with no current remedy, but since it had not moved in 5 weeks, not the issue. Insurance is investigating. This is the first vehicle of this kind I have owned. This vehicle did not have the sun panels to recharge a battery, nor did it have a tow package. I added a backup camera and made no other changes. The rear signals were changed due to moisture and were under warranty.

I got a hymer motorhome in Canada I found it be the worst junk I ever used and owned. when I asked Hymer for help they said not our issue, not our problem we are owned by Thor group of USA and said good luck. I have heard stories just like mine so thanx Hymer for all the help. You also left a crap load of Canadians out of work and millions owed to buissness when hymer picked up a year later and left for USA thor

We love this compact campervan and have taken it to many Rv resorts, the beach and camping. The ride is smooth and since it’s on a Dodge Promaster chasis, it gets great gas mileage. The two sofas turn into a comfy queen bed at night and the lights inside the coach are a classy touch.
