Default Roadtrek will Roll Out 2 New Models in Tampa

Roadtrek will Roll Out 2 New Models in Tampa

The Zion Link is the third model to be introduced in the line, and the first and only model in the industry built on the Dodge ProMaster 1500 chassis with a 136-foot wheelbase. The interior features a full kitchen galley, including a two burner propane cooktop, 3 cubic foot refrigerator and microwave, storage capacity and a separate hideaway/telescoping shower area that also doubles as additional counter space. Perfect for a couple or single traveler, the Zion Link is a comfortable driving and riding vehicle with great fuel economy, the company said.

Also on display will be the Roadtrek Simplicity, an entry level model built on the Dodge ProMaster 3500 chassis. Features include a full kitchen galley with two burner cooktop, microwave, 5 cubic foot refrigerator and plenty of storage with a space saving slide-out pantry and large pot drawer. The coach offers seating for five passengers and a rear power sofa that easily coverts to a king size bed.

Article says Simplicity was shown at a recent show, but nobody has reported on it. Will be interesting to learn how it's more "entry level" than a Zion.

JH did tell me there was a big demand for a smaller van. Thought SRT filled that bill, but I guess not.

The Simplicity is most likely just a "touring" model. Not more "entry level" than the Zion. I am glad they are using the 136" Promaster. Now that these are out this probably means the end of the 170 and 190.

Doesn't sound like Simplicity has a head. The Link has a 'shower area' so I assume a toilet, but maybe not.

Finally the "missing Link" mystery is solved. It's a way to attach all Roadtrek models into one! Roadtrek will Roll Out 2 New Models in Tampa | RV Business
...1500 chassis with a 136-foot wheelbase...

SCOOP

First image of the shower/counter contraption of the Zion Link.
Looking forward to see more!

Here's the telescoping shower stall behind the driver's seat in the Link. (In the closed/down position covered by a hinged countertop that lifts up against the window, allowing the stall to lift to full standing height)
...

...Wow.... Can you get a pic in its full? This is amazing.. But it still has the rest of the bathroom right?

....The toilet closet is across the hall in a cupboard that opens across the aisle (open to the back when in use). I couldn't get a picture of the shower raised to full height because the mechanicals weren't installed yet.... Prototype
...Thank you for the explanation
