A Lower Priced, Lighter Weight, Environmentally Sensible Mid-Size Model!
The Ranger RT is our lowest priced fully-equipped camper van yet. Lower weight and a smaller engine allow use of a lighter chassis, all of which lead to better fuel efficiency. Weight is further reduced through carrying of a portable 110V generator only when you are going to use it.
Energy sources are simplified to just electricity and gasoline. By excluding propane, the van’s systems are greatly simplified for easier operation and less maintenance, and burning of fossil fuels is reduced to help our environment (and your wallet). When you’re not connected to an external power source, run the 110/12V fridge, 110V stove, 110V microwave oven and 110V water heater with the dual large capacity auxiliary batteries through an improved electrical system with a 1250W power inverter and four receptacles. To extend their use, start the engine or a portable generator to re-charge the batteries. (Like all Roadtreks, a generator is needed to operate the air conditioner/heat pump when you’re not plugged in.) The power efficient compressor driven Norcold fridge provides outstanding thermostatically controlled cooling without propane.
A propane option including tank, stove and furnace is available for those where ample space heating is required or stove use while dry camping is extensive.
Although the Ranger RT is optimized for two of you, inside four will enjoy forward facing seating in the two front captain seats and rear sofa. The rear sofa is a great place to relax for up to four. Two can sleep by converting the sofa into a king-size or twin beds. The mid section houses our roomy permanent bathroom. The forward galley has a portable electric stove so it can be stowed when not in use to maximize counter space. A table at the front offers an eating area separate from the rear. This allows the two of you to get up or go to bed at different times, or to leave the rear bed made up all the time. Now that’s convenient!
If you’re looking to enjoy the pleasures of owning a Roadtrek but don’t want to break the bank, the Ranger RT fits the bill!
