Try a used Roadtrek RV for a real pleasure to drive wherever you go!
In addition to the excellent suspension, steering and braking capabilities of the chassis, Roadtreks 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, “normal” and “towing” transmission modes, and an optional locking differential with external transmission cooler (n/a on 170 and Sprinter) provide superior towing performance.
With Roadtrek’s small size, parking is a breeze. Almost every space you find will have more than enough room! Since Chevy based Roadtreks don’t look like motorhomes, you can often avoid RV parking restrictions.
A Roadtrek is more than just a family camper. With up to 6 forward facing seats with seatbelts, 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 the depreciation rate of a car, and you’ve got an unrivalled value.
Roadtreks offer exceptional fuel economy thanks to their aerodynamic shape and lower overall size and weight. The lowered floor on Chevy models allows a low, sweeping roof. The heat pump (air conditioner & heater) is built into the rear, with only the flush-mounted grills visible from the rear.
The refrigerator vent is disguised and integrated into a black louvered grill in the galley window. The fresh water fill is securely located inside a passenger side or rear door to prevent tampering. Large frameless awning windows provide superior ventilation, remain functional in the rain, reduce wind noise, look better, and provide superior views.
There’s lots of standard features you wouldn’t expect to find: the built-in sewage hose system on the 170 and 190; macerator sewage pump on the 210 and RS; cloverleaf dining table; temporarily enclosed bathroom/privacy area; stand-up aisle shower; lowered floor; built-in heat pump; exterior storage compartments below the floor; under-floor tanks; dual layer foam beds and more. A used Roadtrek RV makes sense for your first camper van!
