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. 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)"

German Automotive Excellence meets North American RV Ingenuity!

The RS-Adventurous combines legendary Mercedes-Benz engineering with the ingenious RV design creativity you’ve come to expect from Roadtrek. Based on the 170” wheelbase "regular" Sprinter van, it's 16” shorter than the extended version some other manufacturers use. That may not sound like much, but it can be the difference between squeezing into a regular parking spot or having to find two in a row.

SS-Agile

The Roadtrek SS-Agile is based on the 144" wheelbase Sprinter 2500 van. At only 19 1/2 feet long, the SS (“Short Sprinter”) is perfect for those who want a vehicle that’s really as easy to use everyday as a large crossover or conversion van but one that offers all the conveniences of a fully-equipped motorhome – and delivers awesome fuel economy!

Hitting The Road - Manufacturing Today

For Roadtrek President Jim Hammill, there's one simple 'reason why the company's products are the top-selling motorhomes in their class in North America ." Our products are just better than everyone else’s, “he says. "In the motorhome world, there are dozens of features a product needs to be functional for its owner, and those vary widely from capacity, water and electricity to drivability and how easy it is to park.

In our products, we try to give the consumer every possible advantage that will allow them to be able to go down the road and have total freedom, "Hammill adds.

The Kitchener, Ontario-based company which marks its 40th Anniversary in business in 2013 manufactures Class B recreation

Vehicles sold through a network of more than 100 dealers in the United States, Canada, Japan and Dubai. "Our owners are buying products that cost $75,000 - UP, so they expect perfection, automotive quality and ease of use, "Hammill says.They don't want to have to take a course to be able to use the vehicle; they want to just flick a switch and turn it on."

This ease of use is best illustrated by the E-Trek, an environmentally friendly vehicle Hammill calls the company's newest flagship. Heat and hot water in the E-Trek are provided through the vehicle's combined heating core, which is fueled by its regular fuel diesel as opposed to propane. The E-Trek also features an engine mounted generator and a 245watt solar panel on its roof that charges its eight auxiliary batteries in daylight.

Several features of the E-Trek such as its solar panel, are being adapted to the company's other vehicles, including its 40th Anniversary Edition model, launched this year. The anniversary edition model includes insulated fresh and waste water systems that will function even in cold temperatures. "This allows our consumers to go anywhere in North America regardless of the weather," Hammill says. "Our customers want to be able to just jump in their vehicles and cross the country and not have to be a technician along the way.”

Leading The Way:

All of Roadtrek’s vehicles are manufactured in its headquarters in Kitchener. Vehicles are built on Chevy Express van and Mercedes Sprinter chassis, which are cut, expanded and equipped with fiberglass bodies. After the body is in place, the company installs wiring, plumbing, propane and other systems, depending on the product line.

Other manufacturing functions include cabinet making, plastic vacuum forming, appliance installation and painting. Following final assembly, each vehicle goes through more than 200 quality checks, inspections and tests, including one conducted by the vehicle's owner, Hammill says.

Roadtrek recently enhanced its production capabilities by investing in metal working equipment and CNC tube cutters and benders. The company also added scanning technology to its research and development and engineering capabilities. "We feel we have to lead the engineering way and always have, since our products have functions other companies’ products don’t,” he adds. Our products are not the cheapest or most expensive, but they are the most functional and well built.”

Continuing Improvement:

Roadtrek applies lean manufacturing. “The recession made us completely retool and redesign our manufacturing,” Hammill says. 'We used to have three long assembly lines with 200 vans in process that took 30 days to work our way through. "Today, the company produces roughly 40vans at a time, with an average through put of seven days. Vans are manufactured based on sales as opposed to sales forecasts, he adds.

Roadtrek's inventory of parts has been reduced by more than 70 percent within the past few years through the implementation of kanban systems and dealer managed inventory. ”We have an excellent group of vendors who went through tough times just like everyone did, "Hammill says. “They work closely with us on engineering and help us bring in new technology all of the time."

Other internal improvements include adding work stations and kitting systems. ‘We continue to refine all of our processes and regularly have lean events to improve our business, “he adds.
