WOW! First look at the 2024 Chinook Maverick Class B+ Motorhome

The folks from Vogt RV Center produced the video below to give consumers a first look at the brand-new 2024 Chinook Maverick Class B+ Motorhome.

(Side note: While Chinook calls this a Class B+, by law it is technically a Class C. Feel free to discuss in the comments.)

I have to say that for me, personally, this is one of the most impressive rigs I have seen since starting to cover these RV tours. If I were considering this particular type of RV, it would be HIGH on my list.

Like the old vintage Chinooks, this one too has a rear entry door, which allows maximum wall space in the motorhome despite not having any slides. It also allows for a HUGE amount of large interior storage cabinets

This is a well-insulated, true 4-season RV. There are some really nice touches throughout. For instance, check out the unique placement and security of the vehicle fuel input. And I love the storage compartment next to the back door with its drop-down shelf, weight rated for 100 lbs. It’s a perfect place to turn into an outdoor kitchen.

I also liked the smart plug on the 30-amp power cord that troubleshoots potential electrical issues at the campground as well as provides power to the motorhome.

Inside this coach just blew me away, starting with the HUGE closet inside the back door. This thing is bigger than you’ll find in many much-larger RVs.

There’s a nice enclosed separate shower, not part of a wet bath. Our host is over 6 ft. tall and he had plenty of extra headspace in the shower. The loo portion has a ceramic toilet and plenty of storage.

The kitchen does not disappoint either. The large 3-way fridge in the galley has room for plenty of groceries and is bigger than I would have expected in a rig like this. There’s a small convection microwave oven and a huge farmhouse-style sink, plus a more-than-respectable amount of counter space. There are some nice narrow but deep storage closets here too, as well as a large pull-out pantry with adjustable shelves. They even thought of a place to stash the sink cover when it’s not being used.

The only downside to the kitchen, in my opinion, is that the induction stove cooktop only has a single burner. But on the positive side, it is moveable from inside the rig to the outdoor cooking space.

The model shown in the video has a sofa as well as a small dinette, but another floor plan option offers two sofas instead. When it’s time to go to bed, the dinette and the sofa convert into a giant sleeping surface. Or you could just convert the sofa to a double bed. Or if you are by yourself, just convert the dinette into a single bed. Options!

Overall this looks like a well-built, solid rig. Even the cabinetry is made from real wood, not particleboard.

A quarter million dollars …and you STILL have to construct a crude ‘puzzle bed’ from an assortment of cushions at the end of a tiring day. Likewise, being forced to reverse the same cushion reassembly chore BEFORE the first cup of coffee in the morning. Nope, not for me!

Although I DO think it shows potential for a single, affluent traveler and exhibits a handsome interior/exterior appearance …you could experience that SAME uncomfortable and tacky ‘fake bed’ effect in a $25K pop-up camping trailer.

The underwhelming OCCC of just 1,000lbs is far below the alternative high end competition, also building on the Ford HD350 chassis: (Coach House, LTV, Phoenix USA).

The first two manufacturers also provide floor plans with permanent beds with residential-grade mattresses in bedrooms separated by a privacy partition dividing the Coach’s distinct, dual living spaces.

At the same pricing, too many reasons to go with LTV and Coach House instead.

Nice. This is well appointed, well built, and the quality we would all like in an RV, but it proves that for high quality, it costs. Ya gets what ya pay for.

I have to wonder what the CCC of this unit is. With all that storage and a large body I would imagine that it would be easy to overload the chassis.

total joke. if you want a good class c buy a nice low mileage Born Free for less than 50K. we love ours. what are these people thinking. one sink, one stove burner and sleep on a couch. this will end soon.

I was liking this as the tour progressed. Wifey would not even watch it so there’s no way we would even think about this. But, if I could afford a 2nd RV just for me (HA!) to head to the desert for some gold prospecting – maybe. Still awfully spendy. Almost as spendy as even SMALLER units!
But the dump valve at the very rear of the RV invites breaking off just going into a parking lot, not to mention boondocking areas. Don’t like the single sink in the kitchen either. DO like the two-way doors on the fridge, especially in a smaller unit like this. Great idea. I’m no fan of watching TV at a 90-degree angle, and that’s the only option here. The bed looks like it could NEVER be comfortable. Where do you store all those cushions when you take them off the couch? Only two small windows that open?
Having said all that, there is still a lot to like about this unit. Lemme think about that . . .

Stop calling it a B van, it is a Class C rv!
naturally, there is more walking room in the aisle then a B van, because it is wider then a B van!

The new Chinook listed at a MSRP: $228,843…..Really? Are you kidding me? I was recently checking out some Class A and Class C motorhomes. For the price of one of these Chinooks you could get almost 2 other types. Much bigger and just as well appointed. Why are these Class B types so expensive? A new (2023) Entegra Model 27A was priced at $113,000, so what gives? I’m sitting here scratching my head thinking about spending $228,843 dollars to go park in a campground that costs $40. So come on…..just over a Quarter of Million dollars to go camping. Wow!

All new RVs are outrageously priced but yes esp these small ones. I don’t know where you saw Class As for less than that, but personally I would not want one at any price. Everyone is different.

Then again, I would never buy new period. But this price seems right in line with other new RVs to me.
