Default Roadtrek armoire: know of anyone who makes them aftermarket?

We are in the process of buying a Roadtrek 210 and have had that model in the past years. I made an armoire myself to replace the passenger seat immediately behind the shotgun seat when we owned a 210 in the past.

At one time a few years ago, there were a couple of after market sources for RT armoires. I have searched this and some other forums and can't find any such source. It seems one was in Florida and one in Canada if my memory serves me correctly.

Also, of course, I could custom make one myself but I don't have all the woodworking tools (and probably skills) I once enjoyed. Also, I could simply go to a local cabinet maker and have them do the job, but if someone knows of a source or a used armoire for sale, I would appreciate that information.

There are more people removing the 3rd seat than removing an armoire.

That's true!! And that is why the after market twosome seemed to have had a good demand for their product! I have researched forums back for several years but can't find them so it may be no one is providing an after market product.

What advantage is there in an aftermarket armoire over the one currently offered by the factory for the 210?

You will likely NOT find an after market armoir. Go to a woodworker/cabinetmaker. Have a nice one custom made/matched

I don't get it. Why custom build one when Roadtrek provides the option which is nterchangaable with the third seat?

We are buying a 2007 Roadtrek 210P. It does not have an armoire. If we were ordering new we would obviously order the armoire as an option. cruising7388, are you saying the factory can supply an armoire for a ten year old unit? Perhaps I falsely gave the impression we were ordering a new unit (??).

.

RT has the armoire.
To be more precise, RT will make one for you.
But you won't like the price.


There is no harm in asking.

My mistake. I thought you were getting a new 210. RT does provide this option for current 210 production. Price is around $600 which I think is in the cost whereabouts of a third party custom unit. However, I don't know if the current armoire profile is compatible with the physical layout for circa 2007 but a call to the factory should determine this one way or the other.

When the aftermarket armoires were available, they were about 1/2 the price of a Roadtrek ones. ASFAIK Both vendors have gone away, so much tougher now.

If you go to a cabinet shop, you may get a nice, but heavy, armoire, as it will likely be MDF and 3/4" thick. The Roadtrek ones are much lighter, and that can be a big issue especially on a 210.;

If you can find a marine woodwork supplier, you could get an armoire built of lightweight Akuma, but it might cost plenty.
