Try a Used Roadtrek RV Now!

Aug 17, 2007
If you are considering buying a used RV, why not get a used RoadTrek?

The RoadTrek is superior in terms of stability as it has a lower center of gravity compared to RVs by other manufacturers. For better weight distribution, the water tanks are located close to the axles. 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.) It also has excellent suspension, steering and braking capabilities of the chassis.

It has a 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) to provide superior towing performance.

As the Roadtrek is small, it is easy to park. As the Chevy based Roadtreks don't even look like motorhomes, you can avoid RV parking restrictions and park at regular spaces.

A Roadtrek is more than just a family camper. You might even purchase it as a second vehicle for the family. It has 6 forward facing seats with seatbelts. The cost of owning and operating a Roadtrek is far lower than a second vehicle in the driveway AND a motorhome in storage! In addition to that, RVs depreciate slow compared to an ordinary car and Roadtrek RVs have higher resale value compared to other motorhomes.

Thanks to its aerodynamic shape and lower overall size and weight, Roadtreks are not fuel guzzlers. 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 while the fresh water fill is securely located inside a passenger side or rear door. This is to prevent tampering. For superior ventilation, the Roadtreks have large frameless awning windows that not only look better and provide superior view but protects from the rain and reduce wind noise.

Other features that are standard in Roadtreks, may not be found in other RVs. Some include 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.

Considering all these additional features, you may consider to purchase a used Roadtrek RV as your first camper van that is ideal for your domestic vacation.
