    Any way to order H00 on a Cargo van? Would Love this option..Any other ideas Dave, I am going to make a small Conversion..Appreciate all. I have heard that 4×4 will be around $5,000, Thanks Again..

    • Terry,

      The option H00 is not available as a stand alone option on cargo vans. It is available in Crew vans, but we can order the Mobility Prep Pkg option in the cargo vans and the H00 is included in it. The X14 Mobility Prep Pkg includes the following items.

      Do3 High Roof, ED5 Parametric Module, ES2 12 volt outlet rear compartment, E28 Aux 100 amp battery with relay, E46 12 volt outlet base of drivers seat, H00 Heater Air Duct for Passenger compartment, H22 rear window defroster, VA1 side wall paneling, V31 Window Pillar Trim, V36 rear roof trim, W02 fixed windows all around.

      The factory guys told me to expect the price of the 4×4 to be closer to $7500, but nothing is set yet.

      Last orders for 2014’s will go in this next week. First orders for 2 wheel drive 2015’s will begine in May. 4×4 orders sometime by the end of this calender year with delivery in early 2015.

    Just purchased a Leisure Van (BlueTec) when the auxiliary heater is turned on ALOT of smoke is coming out of the exhaust pipe underneath, is this normal on a new unit?

    • Seth,
      Here in Texas we very seldom have an opportunity to get the factory aux heaters to work because they only work at temps under 39 degrees. Do you have the factory rear heat or one installed by Leisure Van?
      If it is the factory unit you will need to check with a dealer in the cold climates who may have more experience with issues with the aux heater.
      If it is an aftermarket system, you should contact the conversion company or an RV dealer repair shop.
      Wish I could offer more info.
