Default Hey From NorCal

I have trolled this site for the good information we needed when we were looking for the right Class B. Just bought our Roadtrek last Friday. We started with a Class C, then a Riverside Retro and now this one. If you noticed a trend downward in size, it's because of the wife's desire to have something she feels comfortable driving. I believe we have a winner.

One note of curiosity is that the RT was first sold in Canada, so the speedometer is in KPH with the MPH in smaller numbers underneath. Takes a little adjusting.

Welcome to the forum Top2MP!

Those Chevy Express-based "b's" are pretty sweet. With good tires, proper alignment, and new shocks they will cruise at any legal speeds (not that I recommend it). The long wheel base that helps on the highway, results in a parking lot turning radius of the Queen Mary.

My wife almost refuses to drive, but when she did, she had no problem. I have no problem driving anywhere including into traffic. To me, the big adjustment was relying on mirrors and the rear-view camera. But once you do, you realize there are no blind spots which is a huge confidence builder. And coming from larger rigs, you will enjoy driving in the twistys and passing up gas stations due to a 14-16 mpg range.

welcome


you'll get good at doing the math in your head


you are probably old enough to have had a US car with Kph markings on the speedo, so it'll come back


I imagine the odometer and the computer functions are also metric- no big deal

Congratulations!

Exactly what model did you purchase & year, I see Rowiebowie mentioned the Chevy but is that what you ended up with?
