Hi, folks. I finally got around to joining the forum. I've owned my 1997 Roadtrek for about 15 years. The summer of 2018 we took a trip around the contiguous US states, visiting family and friends and as many national parks as possible. Great trip! I'm hoping to compare notes with other Roadtrek owners about their vehicles and experiences.

Welcome to the forum Tom!

You have a lot of experience to share. You'll also find a lot of postings on the older Roadtreks on the Dodge chassis if you care to search.

How long was your recent trip and what was your general route? I love to stay in our National Parks (the Senior Pass is a super money saver) and we've been lucky to stay in many even though we don't do reservations. Of course, we travel off-season and try to follow nice weather meaning other peoples kids are in school.

Our trip in 2018 took about 2 months. We took a northern route from New England out to Yellowstone National Park, down to Arizona and back along the south to the East Coast. Yes, we made good use of the senior pass and still do. We have made two trips to Haleakala National Park this week alone, and saved $30 dollars each trip.
We love our Roadtrek. We split our time each summer in New England between it and our sailboat. The RV makes it easy to visit my kids and siblings on the mainland. All we have to do is pull into a driveway and plug in.
Thank you for the welcome!

Tom, we bought a 1996 Roadtrek 190 Popular and had it for a long time. Now, we have a 2007 210P.

Some of the greatest memories of our lives were made traveling in that 96 Dodge. Ours was seafoam green trim and matching interior with what we used to call the 318 engine. If ever there was a bullet proof motor, that must have been it.

Everything on that RT I could pretty well take care of myself and it served us very well. Essentially, as I recall, the difference between a 96 and 97 was pretty well just the number. So we can really identify with your devotion to that critter.

We have a 2007 RT 210 Versatile and love it..
Having alot of fun with it. Big enough for the wife and I and we can park it in our driveway where we have 30amp service outlet. We try to take it out atleast every 6-8 weeks to just get away.
Will be taking it to Michigan this summer then on to Alaska.

Hi Tom,

Welcome to the group! Do you ship your RT over from Hawaii? I've owned 1990's Class B's for around 14 years now (a 1998 Coach House and currently a 1999 Roadtrek 190 Popular). I really love traveling in them - easy to drive and easy to park. I'm hoping to travel all around the states more after I retire in 3 years.

Pam
