Greetings!
My wife and I picked up our 2016 Roadtrek Zion a week ago. Other than renting a Winnebago Era earlier this year, this is our first RV. We live near Chicago and are looking forward to our first big trip this spring.

And yes, I have been following the thread on the EcoTrek and the Volstart problem. It took the dealer 6 weeks to get ours fixed before we took delivery. But it is working fine now!

Great! congratulations. It would be great to hear some real world feedback on how that stuff is working. Will you be able to travel much in the winter?

Welcome...

Very good on them getting it working, reports continue to come in indicating that Roadtrek has things sorted out now. If you are in Facebook consider joining the Roadtrek Owners Group, lots of owners over there with good info.

Congratulations! We picked up our 2016 Zion early Nov and have had several short camp trips. We opted not to get the VoltStart and just the basic 200 Lithium. It seems to meet our needs so far by allowing us to have all the electrical power required for an overnight stay.

We are new to the community having bought a travel trailer early this year. We realized a small motorhome is more conducive to our needs so now the search begins.

We live in central Ohio and have three daughters along with nine grandkids in central PA. Believe it or not, we are young for grandparents so still have many years until retirement. For this reason, we need the flexibility of being able to boondock for a couple of days dat a time during the "off-season" rather than relying on a travel trailer in storage half the year. Life and learn.

Hello! We are a young family looking to trade in our Class C for a Class B. After doing some extensive travel this year with the C, we realize we enjoy RVing but think a Class B is a better fit for us for several reasons....safety for young kids in carseats, better driving experience, no need for a toad. We live on the east coast and have to squeeze our travels into 2 week vacations, so speed limit driving and having 2 drivers would be huge pluses with a B. Our biggest challenge with the B will be sleeping arrangements for the kids, but there seem to be several solutions out there that could suit our needs. We look forward to learning more from you all!

Hello, I own a 07 Roadtrek 190 Versatile. I am a experienced RVer, have owned 3 RV's. I would like to know what class B motor home owners have to say about their RV's.

Hi folks,
My name is Thanasis, I live Northern CA. I just discovered this forum yesterday, and I immediately decided to join.
We bought our Sprinter (cargo) new in 2006.
I did the conversion myself. It has been a never-ending project of love, since I seem to always find things to change/improve. I posted a few photos of my rig under my profile.

I bought a new 2015 Winnebago ERA 70A three months ago. It has a rear king size bed that converts into 2 twins. It also has a love seat (with 2 seat belts) that converts into a single bed. So, with 3 in the king and 1 in the single, you could squeeze 4 into the coach. We also bought a 2" memory foam mattress pad for the king. It is a definite improvement (eliminates the cracks feeling) and also warms the bed. The Ultra Leather can feel a little cold. We use light sleeping bags as the furnace is very effective, and we have a small portable RV electric heater to use if we have hookups. Have camped in Caspar WY in 25 degrees with 35 mph hour wind gusts, effectively about 17 degrees. Would motel it next time, as vans do not have that much insulation.
