I saw an ad for the sale of the same model and year of my Plearure-way. So, I thought I would share my experience. My wife and I own and travel in our 2008 Ford Pleasure-way. It has been very wonderful to camp across the United States. I can easily park the vehicle -- it is only 20 feet long. 2008 Pleasure-way Excel TS Class B motorhome is Pleasureway's most popular model. It has a wide-body with a forward facing sofa that also makes into a 6'4' bed. The generator in our unit is loud, so we do not use it. We do not seem to need it. It has lots of cabinet storage both inside and out. The kitchen has all the essentials. It has an outdoor shower hose, but we have never used it. The gets about 14 miles per gallon -- 17 tops. I hope this information helps someone.

Our 2007/8 Pleasure Way Excel TS is a dream to drive. We use it daily as our primary vehicle and it is great downtown - fits in a regular parking space and has a great turning radius! I am a petite female and it is very comfortable to drive. It's also great on the highway and on mountain roads. The Ford Engine/chassis has been extremely reliable. It starts right up - even with 139,000 miles on it. I bought it with 82,000 miles on it from a friend I trusted who owned an RV dealership . I was concerned about the miles, even then, and he said those Ford engines could probably easily go 200,000+ miles, so I dived in. I have no regrets whatsoever. Not only is this a great-driving vehicle, it is a luxury RV. The materials, craftmanship, quality, and functionality of the space is unsurpassed. I have had 2-3 other brands and go to RV shows and look at a lot of RVs. None of them compared to Pleasureway in regard to layout, craftsmanship, quality and effective use of space.

The Pleasure-Way Pursuit is a "top shelf" small coach that you can take anywhere you can park a car. I wanted the small size because of the narrow roads in the Hawaiian Islands. This filled the bill to a T. They are extremely well made, with natural maple cabinetry, electric blinds and shades, roof top opening skylights, swivel seats up front and that clever corian table that converts from a book rack behind the passenger. Corian EVERYWHERE! Oh my gosh the BATHROOM! I wasn't going to get a coach with a bathroom where my feet stuck out. Nope. When I saw the bathroom, that was a big sell for me. Another "must have" was a rear dinette/bed. I had considered the Toyota mini motorhomes, I owned a Dolphin years ago, but I didn't want the repairs that come with an RV that is so aged. (they are around 30 years old now) I love being able to have a great view from the incredible windows. We drive to the beach on rainy days, pull into a nice place to park and play cards, or games, read or listen to music. Sometimes I play my guitar. We can pop in a video if we feel like it. The awning is wonderful for the days when you want to be outside. Our camp chairs fit in the outside storage with our tiki torches. I just put a bike rack on the back, so I can peddle around Kona and do a little shopping. This is what I would call a small luxury coach, and it does not disappoint. Well done, to whomever designed such a fabulous little unit! We LOVE ours!

Pleasure-Way has a great warranty and support. Almost every weekend in this RV is like a mini vacation in it of itself-day picnic near ocean or near mountain-just park and enjoy nature anywhere in downtown or away from cities! It’s a hobby for me to keep it mechanically and impeccably clean. Never smoked in, no pets and I’ve owned it for over four years and have improved it. All the appliances still work without any problems. The craftmanship is the best, I can recommend without any hesitation.

I wanted something smaller, yet with a full bath/shower. The bathroom is as elegant in an R.V. that I've seen for one this length. Corian shower and backsplash. Nice high end finishes. (new these were about 130K.) It has milled maple cabinetry (and LOTS of them)....with corian counter tops. The vinyl floor is nice, and it looks like earth toned rustic tile, so it's not a floor that makes you crazy trying to keep it clean. The front T.V. and VCR are great. Usually if you run the A/C, you can't hear the T.V. worth a hoot, but the volume with this one is incredible! I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The cream leatherette is butter soft and in wonderfully cared for condition for a 9 year old unit. This tells me that the fabric they used is again, of a high quality for what it is. It's easy to clean, although I keep covers on the front seats to protect them. Let's see, I haven't mentioned the engine yet. It's an E-350 Ford and it does great.....doesn't feel "under powered" like some of these can be. Overall this one gets a 5 star rating, because of how elegant the feel is inside. We aim the back windows toward the views, and the seating or bed make it amazing. It's like a million dollar room with a view on wheels! The roof windows allow so much light inside, but I keep custom cloth covers over them to mute the light a bit. It's nice to be able to have the best of both worlds. Loving this elegant R.V.!

The Mercedes handles beautifully and easily maneuvers in tight spaces. The coach is very livable for a retired couple traveling the countryside or for a single person wanting to experience life as a nomad. The quality of a Pleasureway coach is unparalleled. The coach has highly efficient and creative use of space. There’s room for everything you need. The cabinetry is absolutely gorgeous. Very well made, with tight closures and beautiful finishes. No rattling while moving down the road because the construction is of such high quality. Great things come in this small package.

I love this RV, with one big exception. Being a Mercedes Sprinter, the driving experience is smooth and powerful. With diesel I get 16 mpg around town, and 17 on freeway. I have compared this with a Chevy Class C RV which was like Beauty and the Beast. Preferred this layout with bathroom on driver side and kitchen opposite which seems to open it up as well as allow more visibility for driver looking over passenger side. I had previous Roadtrek with opposite floor plan to compare. The MP has 4 captain's chairs which my wife has been able to configure for 2 extra beds by rotating and laying them flat, so 4 can sleep (but better when 2 are outside in tent...) Here's the exception: very expensive to repair emissions control system for the diesel fuel, which many of us have complained about. Fortunately, this year, 2021, a Bluetec settlement against Mercedes has paid for most of the repair, but as much as I love this RV, I will look into other chassis for the next one.
