Default Lenght of Etrek XL

It's 24 feet long. That sounds long, but my GMC 2500 is 20 feet long and it's not much different handling either vehicle around town.

I'd be cautious of some of the Roadtrek systems like the Ecotrek lithiums and the under-mount air conditioner. That being said, if they work well, it is quite stealty for a 24' class b due to no roof a/c and clean sides that give it a passenger van appearance. It also has the huge "Warp Core" 1600Ah battery package. Looks like it was optioned to the max.

Iíd be reluctant to take that low mount A/C on a dirt road. The Alaskan and Dempster Highways would be really questionable. Itís a great looking coach and Iím truly sorry it wonít for my living situation nor my travel envelope.

It will work extremely well for the right buyer and hereís a bump for a really fine coach!

I could also be ignorant but I think a low mount A/C is under the coach??? Someone please correct me, if Iím wrong.

If itís under the coach, wouldnít it be vulnerable to mud and slop on unpaved roads? Iíd really like to be wrong, because itís a really good looking coach that could possibly work in the condo association Iím considering.

Thanks!

Default Roadtrek Under mount AC

I havenít taken it off road, so I donít know if there would be a problem with the AC in those conditions. I ordered it with 4 wheel drive so that I could drive out west in the winter to snow ski. What is really nice about the undermount AC is that it runs on DC power and doesnít require the use of an inverter and thus has less draw on the batteries. That combined with the 8 lithium batteries mean I can run the AC overnight in hot weather here in Mississippi. 4 batteries will get me through the night and then I switch to the other 4 in the morning.

mclintock247,

Thank you for that explanation. I thought there would be some real advantages to the DC Air Conditioning and using that huge battery bank and youíve told me what they are. That makes it a really functional coach for 90% of my travels.

Best regards,

Bill

So I looked it up:

From an engineering viewpoint, it has some excellent features, but being mounted under the coach is bad engineering. Excess risk of catastrophic damage from the elements is my primary concern, not to mention high cost.
I'll stick with the interior under ceiling rear cabinet location, and use low cost easily replaceable home window AC. Can even easily switch to a 12vdc in place of the 110vac type and rewire for the amp load.
That's just my opinion, YMMV
