That guy must be very tall. I'm 5' 10" and am sitting in my passenger seat (rotated around) and my thigh is pretty much level with the floor. I can't imagine being comfortable with my feet needing to go another 5" to the floor.

Any idea what that bike rack/mount is? I wouldn't mind getting one of those for my van.

Looks like it may be this one. But not sure they are really securing it to the floor.

I'd be very interested in seeing this order form. Any chance you could post it somewhere? or list the options and prices for us?
It's amazing how poorly all of the B-class manufacturers do keeping their websites up to date. Roadtrek has nothing about the Zion listed yet and they still show 2014 models! Same for the Pleasureway Lexor.

I cropped and enlarged it for viewing. Gerry can confirm that the only text missing is:
Effective Dec 16, 2014 (terms on reverse) Please fax to ###-###-####
and the word: Total (no amount)



Remember, the Zion is slated for production in February 2015. I think it is best to discuss options, details, prices etc. with your dealer. Let them get the specifics direct from Roadtrek. Clarify what 400 AMP battery means if that detail is important to you etc.

I think you can get side twin beds OR forward facing rear sofa on most Roadtrek models when ordered from the factor through a dealer.

It's good to see they have more interior cabinetry options. I had serious doubts about the "all white" interior design. Especially since you can see scuff marks showing up on the drawer in the RVIA video. Now I'm wondering how the king bed works. It didn't look like the driver's side twin bed extended all the way across in the video.

the bolsters on the passenger side bed fit in the the gap. the table is used as an underneath platform to holdup the king bed

I had the dealer ask. NO to any zion special orders.(beds etc). only things on options list

Does anybody know why the under hood generator (option GU) costs so much? I thought it was basically an additional alternator mounted on a custom bracket. I assumed the cost would be no more than 1/2 of what is listed here. I know that there will be additional wiring and maybe a controller but this is very expensive in my opinion.

I would agree, unless they have some kind of charge control system on it to protect the batteries, which would make it less unreasonable.

the price is the same for all their 1/2trek packages(not full e-trek).if you price on their site you will see that-usually it includes the 4 6 volt batteries though.( 2 additional 6 volt to make 4) and also the inverter chargeris bigger. the standard inverter/charger is usually 750 watts. the engine generator package gets a bigger inverter/charger(2500 watts). plus 2 extra6 volt batteries

until we get an actual spec page we wil lnot know.

I wonder if they will be changing the "400amp" battery spec to either AH or their now used elsewhere watts (really watt-hrs). I think that was really a 185AH tppl battery (2220 watt-hrs) based on another discussion.

Default Re: Roadtrek is making a ProMaster model... Zion

as i said i have both the original(dealer meeting)and current build sheets. they are substantially different.

the biggest difference is in the original sheet the 'Underhood engine generator'was standard. No Onan was contemplated. the engine generator package
1/2 trek on other models is 4 6 volt batteries/280 amp alternator and large inverter/charger 2500 watts.

Now this new build sheet says Onan and engine generator are options. although we have no specs since Onan is now an option that the standard inverter/charger is now the standard one used on most models. the 750 watt inverter charger. i don't knowif the 400 ampbattery that remains is the same original one which was actually 400 minutes or is now a misprint.

to get the bigger package will now require ordering the engine generator. Ihave no actual knowledge these are just guesses based on the original dealer sheet.

ps ifJim Hammill sees my posts here. i'm getting the Roadtrek-the zion introduction has slowed the wife and i up a little. because we want the built in twin bed standard dinette wep robably will still get the chevy.

ps fromroadtrekwebsite

12V, 3,500W, includes 2500W inverter/converter/charger, includes two extra 6V batteries (B2 option) (Not available with conventional generator option)
