hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV in Grand Rapids Michigan today. I'm here to tell you about the 2018 vintage Cruiser 19 RBIs this one as you will see is in the beautiful turquoise color the thing. I love about the vintage cruiser is it does a great job of mixing all the modern amenities with the old look so.
I really like what they've done let's go ahead and start up front we'll make our way around and then head on in. So, speaking of making things easy here's where it starts right as soon as you hook up to your tow vehicle you can use this power tongue jack to raise that up and down you also have a light on there to be able to see at night behind that is your propane tank cover with two 20-pound propane tanks then right here you have rail for your battery underneath that you will see you have a tube that's going to be for your sewer hose that way it's a nice convenient spot to put it because this one does not have a bumper right here is your diamond plating this helps protect the front end from rocks and debris that get thrown up by your tow vehicle and that way it doesn't beat up and scratch up your beautiful fiberglass front end cool thing about the vintage cruiser is this is one piece fiberglass in the front all the way up on the roof and down the back having one piece fiberglass construction is really beneficial for a couple reasons the big reason is it helps prevent water penetration the last hole who seems you have up on the roof the last chance water is going to get into your RV. So, the other cool thing about it as you can see, if you take a look at the roof line it has a natural curve to it.
So, what happens is water naturally runs to the front and back away from your campsite and because you don't have theme going across again less chance for water to get in. So, again very beneficial construction there over on the far side you see a light again to help you, if you're hooking up or disconnecting at night right on the side here you'll see the student is equipped with vamp solar again modern amenities, if you're out boondocking or you just want to have a trickle charge on your battery all you have to do is buy the portable vamp panels plug them in right there and it will start to trickle charge that battery for you you pass-through compartment here you'll notice it does have a covered hinge. So, you won't have rust coming down your door which is great you'll also see that it has a magnetic latch on there.
So, it is nice and easy to put up as well as drop down we take a look in the pass-through you'll see it is a nice big pass-through compartment plenty of room for chairs and everything else that you want to stuff in there right up top is a power awning again kind of power items on this coach just making camping easy even in a vintage trailer just touch a, button to roll that out same thing to have it go right back in you'll see in the heads of the awning you have speakers built-in that way when the awning is out the music will play down on your campsite Razdan blasting out at your neighbors you'll also notice an LED light strip that is sewn into the awning there that way it doesn't matter, if your awning is out just a couple inches or fully extended the LED light will shine down on your campsite you also see you have two steps to get into the vintage Cruiser. So, it is nice and easy to get into actually one of the changes they've made. So, you have the nice friction hinge door on here which is great makes it nice easy to put this anywhere you want, but as.
I mentioned one of the big changes they made to the vintage is they got rid of this big step well they used to have inside and they've gone to two actual steps that way it's less chance to trip and fall less of a hazard especially at night. I think that was a great change especially for safety making the way back a little bit further you'll see right here you have a TV valve. So, what you can do is you can actually take the TV from inside you take it right out with the the arm on there bring it out here drop it down in and now you have an outside TV.
So, really convenient and easy the hookups for that right over here Electric and then your antenna right there as well take a look at the rim just awesome looking rims there the white wall look which is cool and then also the lube axles. So, that's advantageous it has a really cool camp that goes over it that we don't have on it yet manufacturer ships them off and then we of course put them on, but the easy lube axles are great for maintenance as well make our way to the back real quick here, if you take a look at the back something else that is new is this unit is now prepped for a backup camera. So, even though it's not a big unit you know sometimes it's nice to have that vision behind you so, if you want to backup camera it's a lot easier to have that installed on the off door side is where all your hookups are, if you take a quick look over here you see you have a cable inlet your satellite inlet as well detachable power cord right here and you have a black tank flush on this camper, if you're not smooth the black tank flush that's really handy instead.
I'm going to take a hose and stick it down your toilet to wash out your black tank you can just screw it in right here the black tank has sprayers built-in it will wash it out for you lastly, if you take a look right up here you will see your city water connection your tank fill is up front, but then you also have an outside spray port in case you need water access outside welcome to the inside of the 2018 vintage cruiser 19 RBS as. I mentioned we were outside this one of course is in the turquoise color right over here is your dinette one of the things. I love about this floorplan.
I really enjoy when manufacturers do is give you a camp side dinette the reason is because this is variable eating breakfast having a cup of coffee you know really spending a lot of time and it's great to see out at your campsite not look out at your neighbors also it lets in a lot of natural light here by having the big window. So, again early in the morning you can certainly enjoy that now this does drop down into a bed so, if you have additional guests that want to stay the night you can remove the legs here the table will sit right along these rails you can see the velcro on there take the cushions fill it in and that will create a bed also, if you have to do any work plug anything in well that's a laptop or tablet you will notice there is a electric connection right down there too. So, you can go ahead and plug in anything into that outlet right up top you have some additional storage you can see the doors there good storage on both sides LED lights right here.
So, you have a cutout up top so, if you want to put some decor or something up there you can certainly do that as well right over here is the multimedia Center this is pretty cool because this is actually hooked up to your TV as. I mentioned earlier this controls the speakers outside as well as in here this is your radio CD and DVD players so, if you want to watch a movie you can go ahead and pop it right in there thermostat of course right over here and then as. I mentioned this is a rear bathroom.
So, as you come on back it's actually a very spacious pad bathroom especially for the size of the RV right over here is your shower they give you an actual shower glass door a lot of times in an RV this size you just get a curtain so. I like the fact they only put a little extra quality in here kind of the tile shower look with the hand wand there and a skylight up top which lets in some natural light also gives you additional Headroom nice big fan right back here you'll see that this is much larger than most fans in the bathroom. So, quickly helps moisture escape out of here right over here you see you have a shelf as well as a cubby hole right underneath electrical outlet right there not underneath that you kind of have a nice linen closet here you have plenty of room to stack your towels in here some other bathroom accessories extra roll toilet paper really whatever you want to put in there then you'll see right down here is your foot flush lover toilet as you can see when.
I sit down plenty of leg room here in front window right in the back to let in a lot of natural light that, if we take a look over here this is pretty neat again big bathroom you can see you have mirrored medicine cabinet with storage behind it sink top and vanity right here some additional storage underneath for some cleaning supplies electrical outlet right there and then take a look at this you have a nice big wardrobe with a hanging rod and some additional storage underneath whether you want a prediction of clothes bathroom accessories trash can really whatever you want one of my other favorite things about the vintage cruiser is the refrigerator now granted it's your standard Dometic refrigerator, but what. I love is they've actually matched the turquoise panel on here rather than having just the wood. I think this really gives it a nice appeal as we open this up you can see you do have sufficient space here in the fridge freezer nice cutout there for some of your taller items and again you know it's a big refrigerator that you often get in this size of camper right next to that is kind of a multimedia Center space.
So, this is where you hook everything up this bracket right here is what. I was talking about this arm actually detaches this is what goes outside of course you would mount your TV right to that right here your audio/video jacks to hookup for your DVD player. So, you just take them from right here plug them into the back of the TV it's will allow you to watch the DVD electrical outlet their cable everything else you need you even have a USB port there too.
So, you need to plug in you know cell phone or something to charge that is the place you would do it tank monitor panel right over there of course shelf on top that's pretty obvious right underneath here you have two large pullout drawers you can see that there they are nice and deep you know whether it's pots and pans you want to put in there really whatever else, but it is there are nice deep drawers they're quite spacious and as you move further over into the kitchen itself microwave right up top here a couple of LED lights storage right off here to the side we were outside. I was talking about the the covers for the wheels that's what. I was talking about right there got my camera guy in that shot, but the nice chrome covers right there really gives it a really good look right up top here you have some again kind of same thing we had across the way a little bit of extra space you want to put some decor up there underneath the microwave your stainless steel hood with a light and fan stainless cooktop here as well a cooktop cover rather this does fold back kind of doubles the backsplash then you see that little your three burner Atwood cooktop the front one being high output then open this up of course this is our oven so, if you want to do some baking that is where it would happen next to that is the double bowl sink you see that it you do have sink top covers for both bowls high rise faucet as well window right behind it and then underneath the sink here take a look at that you have a massive storage space.
So, you know whatever you want to stuff under there again whether it's big pots and pans that won't fit in the drawers they will certainly fit right in there now as we take a look at the front half first of all take a look at the bed again you want to talk about vintage a really cool look. I like what they did here you know Kyle took an old map they have some postcards going across. I think it's a really cool comforter there the other neat thing is you do have storage underneath it is slot supported.
So, it's nice and easy to get to right here's your freshwater tanks you know you don't have to worry about that freezing up on you this is pretty neat too this part right here lifts up folks that's your spare tire you want to talk about knowing that your spare tire is in good shape that is completely out of the elements right there so. I think that's a nice feature as well you can see the privacy curtain going all the way across here your curtain on each side meets right in the middle so, if you do have guests that are stand on the dinette you have the privacy vent right up there so, if you open up the windows you see this window on either side that of course helps get some cross ventilation going through here both sides of the bed you have some additional space right over here you will see, if you look up top there's a hanging rod on both sides they're. So, good wardrobe USB ports over here to charge any cellular devices and then right up top you have additional storage underneath that you'll see your reading lights kind of multi-directional you can have one of two choices you can have it blue like that one is kind of accent lighting or an actual reading light, but you can you know pick and choose either one on both sides, but all right folks that pretty much wraps it up again this is a 2018 vintage cruiser 19 RBS this one is in the turquoise interior, if you're interested in this RV and you'd like price and availability.
