Roadtrek®TM The Van
The Ins and Outs of our Motorhomes
Get a Handle on This!
Whether it‘s cruising down the highway, roaming back roads, maneuvering through congested traffic,
or sliding into a campsite or parking space, Roadtrek’s are nimble and a real pleasure to drive.
Enjoy outstanding handling for greater pleasure safety. In addition to the excellent suspension,
steering and braking capabilities of the chassis, Roadtreks have the laws of physics on their side. They have a much
lower center of gravity than their taller cousins. Water tanks are located close to the axles for better weight
distribution. With a much longer wheelbase (compared to the overall length) a Roadtrek provides unsurpassed highway
stability. (A Roadtrek 190’s length is only 58% longer than its wheelbase compared to 91% for a 22’ B+ motorhome with a
138” wheelbase.) Chevrolet’s body-on-frame construction, a short rear overhang and “normal” and “towing” transmission modes provide superior towing
With a Roadtrek’s relatively small size, parking is a breeze. Slide into a regular sized spot at your destination
instead of searching for multiple spaces on the outskirts of the lot – or worse, the outskirts of town. Enjoy intimate
campsites in the mountains where larger motorhomes aren’t allowed. There’s even a rear window
defroster on most models to keep your rear view clear. Most motorhomes don’t even have a rear window to keep clear!
Since many Roadtreks don’t look like motorhomes, you can often avoid RV parking restrictions.
A Roadtrek is more than just an RV. With up to 7 forward facing belted seats, it makes a great
second vehicle. The cost of owning and operating a Roadtrek is far lower than a second vehicle in the driveway AND a
motorhome in storage! Consider their higher resale value (compared to other motorhomes) and lower depreciation rate than
a car, and you have an unrivalled value.
More GO for your DOUGH!
Roadtreks offer exceptional fuel economy thanks to their efficient engines, aerodynamic shape and lower overall size and weight. They really show up their bulkier class A, C and B+ cousins, as well as higher roofed class B's.
The lowered floor on most Chevy models allows a low, sweeping roof. Instead of a conventional roof top air conditioner, all Chevy based Roadtreks are equipped with a 'Dometic' heat pump (air conditioner and heater) built into the roof, with only the flush-mounted grills visible from the rear, allowing you to park in many RV restricted areas. Ducts ensure comfort all around. Since it’s mounted outside, there’s easy service access and external water drainage.
The Best-Selling Class B Platform
Some models are built on the renowned Mercedes Sprinter van - designed and built for unsurpassed fuel economy, durability, safety, practicality, comfort and quality:
- Powered by a BlueTEC ultra clean fuel efficient CRD turbo diesel V6 engine, you’ll enjoy awesome fuel economy, long service intervals and great longevity.
- 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 improves traction on slippery surfaces.
- Rack and pinion steering and a smooth shifting five-speed automatic transmission enhance driving pleasure.
- Almost vertical exterior sides maximize interior space within an overall exterior width similar to other full-size vans.
- Wider and taller sliding door allows easy entry.
- Cab is equipped with electronic climate control, tilt steering and factory “comfort seats”.
- On long trips, you’ll appreciate the 10-way adjustability, lumbar supports and headrests.
- Added to all this is Mercedes-Benz quality. Need we say more?
