Midwest Automotive Design recently introduced its 2024 Ford Passage Type B motorhome.
The Ford Passage includes standard features such as a refrigerator, sofa bed and wet bath. Seats are leather covered and technology upgrades include wireless internet, Apple TV and a full-coach Alpine sound system.
Midwest Automotive Design creates its own cabinetry and seating to give consumers options from which to choose. The cabinets are available in three colors and seats come in six colors. Flooring is available in two colors.
“Because we do have custom seats and custom cabinetry and those are all built in-house that gives us a quality advantage over customers who are just buying stuff and installing it in the vehicle,” said Jake Stephenson, Midwest Automotive Design marketing director. “It gives us a fit and a finish that is really hard to match in the industry.”
The cabinetry drawers feature dovetail design and residential, soft-close slides. Upper cabinets are built with hidden hinges.
Each Ford Passage has a 7.3-cubic-foot refrigerator capable of holding “all the goodies for camping or tailgating,” Stephenson said.
The kitchen includes an induction cooktop. The first Ford Passage B van run will include one burner, but two-burner cooktops will be integrated as they become available, Stephenson said.
A power sofa and two jacknife sofas lay out in the motorhome’s rear to create a 68-by 82-inch bed.
The wet bath is designed with a 51-inch shower because consumers like plenty of space in the bathroom, Stephenson said.
The Ford Passages include an Eco Freedom package with 600-amp-hours of lithium battery power instead of a generator. Each build also includes 320 watts of solar on the roof, enough power to run a laptop, LED lights or charge consumers’ phones.
Once a consumer orders a Ford Passage Type B motorhome through an RV dealer, it takes three to six months to build, depending on the season, Stephenson said.
