Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA – February 4, 2008 - - Roadtrek Motorhomes Inc. is excited to announce that its very successful limited run SS-Agile class B motorhome has been improved and adapted to the completely redesigned Mercedes-built Sprinter van. At only 19½ feet long, the SS ("Short Sprinter") is perfect for those who want a vehicle that’s really as easy to use everyday as a full-size conversion van or SUV but offers all the conveniences of a fully-equipped motorhome – and has great fuel economy!
The Sprinter, a relative new comer to North America, has proved very popular among RVers. It has captured half of the class B motorhome market and a growing share of class C’s. The all new Sprinter van is designed and built by Mercedes for unsurpassed fuel economy, durability, safety, practicality, comfort and quality. Powered by a fuel efficient CRD turbo diesel V6 engine, owners will enjoy awesome fuel economy, long service intervals and great longevity. The new adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP) takes into account the vehicle’s load as it uses numerous sensors to determine when the vehicle is starting to lose control and uses the traction control and anti-lock braking systems to regain control. Traction control also improves traction on slippery surfaces. Rack and pinion steering and a smooth shifting five-speed automatic transmission enhance driving pleasure. The space efficient engine bay and cab architecture maximize useable interior length. The almost vertical exterior sides maximize interior space within an overall exterior width comparable to other full-size vans. The wider taller sliding door allows even easier entry. The cab is now equipped with electronic climate control, tilt steering and factory "comfort seats". On long trips, drivers will appreciate the 10-way adjustability, lumbar supports and headrests. And Mercedes-Benz quality. Need we say more?
Inside you’ll find a great passenger vehicle for five within a fully-equipped class B that sleeps two. There is comfortable forward facing seating for five in the two front captain seats and rear electric power sofa. Just aft of the driver seat is a 59" long galley with eye-catching granite counter, recessed European-style propane stove with glass cover, under-mounted stainless steel sink, 3.8 cu. ft. 3-way refrigerator, convection/microwave oven and optional coffee maker.
Opposite the galley and aft of the entry behind the front passenger seat is a permanent bathroom. Its unique doors allow ample aisle width when the bathroom’s not in use. But when in use the doors allow extra space inside while keeping the aisle clear. Inside the bathroom you’ll find a marine toilet, vanity sink that slides out over the toilet, and a sit-down shower (or stand-up for smaller people).
Like other models, the rear sofa easily converts to a king-size bed or twin-like beds (we say "twin-like" since they are separated beside your legs only when you’re sleeping). The driver side is 6’ 4" long, the passenger side 6’ long.
Compact exterior size… great fuel economy… comfortable seating for five... interior openness and livability… and all the features of a typical motorhome. The SS-Agile provides an unrivalled combination of use-every-day driving and parking ease with the conveniences of a fully-equipped motorhome. Its possible uses are endless! Add the proven popularity of the Mercedes-built Sprinter and you’ve got another winner from Roadtrek!
