Roadtrek®TM Owners Quotes
I have owned two Roadtreks in the last 15+ years and I am currently looking for my 3rd...
In the last 15 years I have been to Alaska twice (solo hiked the Chilkoot Trail, AK, then solo kayaked 600 mi. down the Yukon to Dawson, NWT), around the US 2-3 times , enumerable trips northern and southern USA & Canada and 2 1/2 months traveling around Mexico, Guatemala and Belize, all with kayak and mountain bike. I also drove the Roadtrek across Wyoming's Oregon Trail including open range and across creek washes where I had to build my own mini-bridge of stones. Since 2000 when I retired at 60 I have lived the winters in SE USA for 4-5 months in my Roadtrek.
Roadtreking is a magnificent lifestyle.

[Response to RV View magazine interview question: You have the option to travel the world using any mode of transportation out there; why an RV? (Parton and her husband take a vacation each year in their Roadtrek RV. )] I've practically spent my entire life on a bus or an RV. It's private, fun and besides, I haul around a bunch of stuff! If I had to carry all of this junk to a hotel room, it would be time to check out before I even checked in!
Dolly Parton, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
I have a Roadtrek and have travelled throughout Mexico for the past 2 winters and can not believe all the Roadtreks we have come across while there. It never failed us once even climbing the steep mountains or driiving around the treacherous curves on the way up and down the mountain.
The bed is so comfortable!
Everyone seems to love their unit as much as us.
Thank you for building such a wonderful, dependable van.
Ann Wright, Chatham, Ontario
Since October 1999, when we became the proud and happy owners of our Roadtrek we have shown our vehicle to curious people countless times.
People are usually amazed at the amount of storage we have, and that our marriage has not dissolved even though we live in our Roadtrek at least 4 to 5 months of each year. One of the reasons our marriage of more than 47 years has lasted this long is because our RV has given us the opportunity to travel and enjoy many thousands of miles together.
We can truthfully say the Roadtrek sells itself. Again, we are happy to be ambassadors for your fine motorhome.
Thank you very much.
Ed & Mary Michalski, Plymouth, Wisconsin
We purchased our first ever motor home this year.
I call it my "Freedom" ride as it has given me back my freedom to travel once again due to a medical condition that had kept me housebound for about eight years.
We love the Roadtrek. It's top of the line quality every where you look inside & outside. Drives like a dream, so easy to get around in, just great!
And the Roadtrek dealership [owner] treated us like royalty from day one clear through the sales process & delivery of our new RV. And their service after the sell is just as great! [Salesperson] and rest of the staff really do live by their motto, "A Company That Cares" and it shows.
And thank you to Roadtrek Company for making such a wonderful top of the line motor home.
Vicky & Gary King, Kirsville, Missouri
We only hope our Roadtrek outlasts us! Also, we like it so MUCH better than any other Class B.
Thanks for a good product which we are thouroughly enjoying. In fact, we just finished living in it entirely for six weeks with lots of rain and never got cabin fever.
Thank you Roadtrek!
Carl & Helen Marschner, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
I want to tell you that our Roadtrek has been our second home. It has been part of our way of life and has provided us with a continuing source of pleasure. We have had many trips all over North America and it has proven to be most reliable in every respect. I want to extend my compliments to [Roadtrek] Motorhomes for developing and retaining the enviable position you have achieved in the field of recreational vehicles. I wish you continued success in the years to come.
Doug Richardson, Bradford, Ontario
I'm 59, single wanting to travel, I needed something small but well equipped. After seeing the Roadterk and viewing the video, you exceeded my expectations!
I just finished a 6 week trip to the Southwest, I met a couple living in a 38' Tradewinds with living room slider. After visiting and thinking about their RV versus mine, I decided I would only wish for a bigger bath facility but not enough to give up other pluses. I found I was getting about the same MPG as people in vans with no living facilities. They had to get a motel room, haul in luggage, and eat out. The people were envious that all I had to do was connect water, power and always had my own bed.
Met some other Roadtreks on the road, NO negative comments. I plan on driving to the east coast this summer/fall and hope for a tour of Roadtrek [factory].
Thanks for all your help, a great machine, and Love My Roadtrek!
Robert Cox, Sacramento, California
The [RV rental] dealer happened to have a Roadtrek (whatever that was) available. The vehicle sounded cute and small enough for us to drive, so we signed the contract. A gentleman... introduced us to our new "home." We departed for the wilderness. Two weeks and thousands of miles later, we bid a sad farewell to this home on wheels in which we had spent so many trouble-free, enjoyable hours. We had seen moose, black and grizzly bears, Dall sheep, Mt. McKinley, rainbows, glaciers and more mosquitoes than we could shake a stick at ? all from the safety and comfort of our little Roadtrek. Wish we'd had product info to hand out ? dozens of fellow campers wandered over at campgrounds throughout Alaska to ask "What is that? Where'd you get it???"
Shirley Bumgardner, Portage, Michigan
Being a Rock 'n Roll musician, Roadtrek has been my very best friend. It has all the conveniences of a luxury motorhome, except anyone who has a driver's license can drive it, park it and get it serviced just like an ordinary van. Roadtrek is the only answer I have found and, over the years, I've tried just about all of them!

Aina and I just returned from a short trip... While we were established in a very woodsy campground, we observed a large [motorhome] (35 feet, at least) spend about half an hour with three people providing guidance, getting into his assigned space between some trees. The next morning, it took him about twenty minutes with much back and forth maneuvering to get his rig out of the park. Did we feel smug! Parking and exiting took us about thirty seconds. Shortly afterwards, we stopped at a restaurant for breakfast and parked right outside the entrance in their parking lot. The large motorhome people were in the same restaurant, but they had to park about a quarter mile away and walk because their rig wouldn't fit into any of the parking spaces in the parking lot. More smug!!
Harry Hewitt, Palo Alto, California
Styling... looks much better than competition. Storage... takes everything we had in 28' trailer. Reputation... friends have one. Our first trip... no packing! - everything there... just drive. Took last space in camp - we fit!... others turned away. Constantly get stopped by strangers asking to look inside my Roadtrek - happily comply.
A Scott, Scotts Valley, California
In 1959 my wife and I bought an 18' Airstream trailer, two years later I retired... Through the next 30 years we owned 4 more Airstreams and towed them a total 239,232 miles and spent 2997 days away from our home RVing... In 1989, we sold our last trailer and bought a 27' motorhome and soon found ourselves towing a Toyota. Soon I realized that was no way to travel... Too, all the highways are under repair... We considered travel in our 27' dual-wheeled motorhome excessively hazardous.
Why choose the small Roadtrek - considerations like safety, ease of handling, parking and fuel costs, servicing costs, parts availability, garaging, neighborhood tolerance, storing, squeezing through tight places, height bulk & weight considerations... Our 37 years of RVing and our ages has cut our trips shorter and allowed Roadtrek to perfectly fill the bill for us.
Milton Johnson, Roff, Oklahoma
We love Sylvia [our Roadtrek]. She performed magnificently all the way to Cabo San Lucas [from Washington state], was always out front in our caravan of 16 rigs, some costing up to $300,000. Needless to say, we were proud of her every mile of the way and never once wished she were larger. We have it down to a science now and lived in her for 3 months in Alaska-Canada and 4 months and 8000 miles to and from Cabo.
Russel Day, Lacey, Washington
...my wife, I, and two visitors from Zimbabwe, Africa (all over 55 years of age) traveled from Alaska through the North and Southwest U.S. for 8 weeks. We camped 90% of the time and we were amazed how well the van performed with the 4 of us.
Richard Dykema, Fairbanks, Alaska
It might be of interest to you that we traveled through 14 countries (including Lichtenstein, Andora and Gibraltar) and covered 19,000 miles in 32 weeks. We negotiated hairpin turns on narrow roads in the Austrian Alps during ski season, bullied our way through rush-hour traffic in Barcelona and cruised easily at 75 MPH on German autobahns. In Swedish Lapland the screens kept the mosquitoes out and in Finland and northern Italy we easily negotiated rutted roads to reach our friends' country houses.
William Ilmanen, Skaneateles, New York
We purchased a Roadtrek 190-Versatile in June. Travelled to Florida for 7 weeks in October. We just love it and never looked back. We just want to share our "joy" with any future buyers.
Jean Marc Barbeau, La Conception, Quebec
What I like best about my Roadtrek is the convenience of traveling long distances without the hassle of finding eating places and rest rooms. It's great not to have to pack and unpack when staying in hotels and it's a secure feeling to know you have a place to stay if motels are full.

The 190-Versatile lived up to its name. No other motorhome could have served our needs better or have given us the flexibility to go where or when the spirit beckoned. It was reassuring to know that we could camp for 3-4 nights without hook-up or services (many National Parks did not provide hookups) and comforting to feel that, no matter where you were stopped for the night, once the curtains were drawn you were "at home". We were able to visit places where longer and wider units were not permitted and never had to reserve a time to pass through long tunnels such as in Zion National Park. We drove the narrow streets of the French Quarter in New Orleans and traveled and parked with ease in other cities. Exceptional vehicle.... Exceptional trip.
