Inside Advanced RV’s new Ocean One Type B Motorhome

Please share this!

As a sure sign that the RV industry is bouncing back, a small Cleveland-based startup has introduced a high end Mercedes Sprinter motorhome that is targeting the extreme high end of the Type B market. It’s new Ocean One model.

Set up with all the extras, it will retail for around $155,ooo, easily making it the most expensive Type B I’ve seen.

Luxury features include a heated floor, heated captain’s chairs, a wine cabinet, lots of fine crafter wood cabinets, a 7.5 cubic foot refrigerator and up to four lithium batteries for extended boondocking camping.

As such it is positioned closest to Roadtrek’s new eTrek and CS models and Airstream’s Interstate, which have many similar options.

Most noticeable about the Ocean One is the distinctive panoramic design of the maple cabinets, which sweep around the interior in an unbroken line that is very pleasing to the eye.

I met Mike Neundorfer, the CEO of Advanced RV and founder of the company, at the huge Florida RV Supershow in Tampa, where the Ocean One was officially introduced.

Advanced RV says the unit will target only about 5% of the Sprinter RV market. Indeed, his whole company doesn’t expect to sell more than 50 of them a year. They sell direct, through their Advanced RV website. Build time for each unit is between 8- 12 weeks.

Neundorfer is a businessman and owner of a comany that helps power plants control air pollution. Assisting him and offering insight into the RV business as a consultant is Mike Ellis, a former General Manager of Great West Vans.

Neundorfer gave me a nice tour of the interior of the Ocean One.

    No clothes closet???

    • Rob

      Yes, there is a wardrobe big enough to hang several suit coats or other clothing in. It is up front, behind the driver’s seat.

    Beautiful, I wish them well. Entering the market at the right time. I was surprised to see they added TPMS, Sprinters don’t have this as part of the base vehicle?

  • Barry

    The 3500 Sprinters (dual rear tires) do not have TPMS available from MBZ. So that is why the Doran RV360 was added.
