Great idea! I thought of that right after I posted. Don't take up too much room and very efficient and well insulated. Waeco (Dometic) gets high marks. You can set it up as fridge or freezer. Come in many sizes. The most you might need to do is run a new 12V & 110v line and outlet to its location, if not there already.

Have you ever been inside a 170? There is barely room for me and the dog.

Perhaps I could remove the drivers seat... or the rear sofa...

I think the only place you probably have is in the footwell of the passenger seat. That is, if you get the small chest. Doubt it would fit under the sofa.

Oh well, when you choose a small van, you make compromises. Can't have everything, even in a big van.

The Roadtrek models on the website show either 1 or 2 rear passenger seats right behind the front seats. Suggestion is to remove one of those to make room. Or is your layout different from current models?

Some one asked for the lengthof the Zion SRT, it is 19' 9". There is a scan of the brochure from Hershey posted over in the files section of the Roadtreking Facebook group if you want to see it.

there are tradeoffs no matter what b floorplan you choose. on my zion the wife uses the fixed bed side and leaves it made up.

i use the couch that goes out to 42 inches wide and use a twin rvsuperbag on it comes . puts on and comes out fast.

i also like the 59k floorplan. they all have their advantages and disadvantages

It lists GVWR as 9350#, so that would make it a 3500, just like the regular Zion.

As Gerry can attest, the capacity of the SRT AGM house battery is about 186 amp hours at the standard 20 hr rate, they keep referring to it by its name SMS AGM 400, where the 400 refers to the fact that is a 400 min reserve battery. Not consistent with the usual Roadtrek nomenclature where they would refer to it as something like a 2232 watt battery (really watt hour but they like leave out the hour part).

The front single bed goes across the two front seats, probably not for full size adults.

If you look at wincrasher's Hershey Report, you'll see a picture of it about three-quarters of the way through. It looks similar to the extra bed Rodatrek sells for the Chevy models that sits across the two passenger side seats, in this case it sits across the front seats.

What is standard and what is optional got jumbled in the copy/paste.

this is the zion battery

it is thin plate pure lead technology-tppl agm- superior to standard agms but not as good as lithium.

on boats it is sized battery bank like lithium because of it's rapid charging

it is NOT lithium

400 refers to reserve capacity

Says it can go to 80% depth of discharge. So more "usable" AH than standard AGM?

i need to be careful here. tppl is superior to standard agm-however some people on boats strat treating them like they are lithium because in many ways they act like lithium.

they charge almost as fast as lithium and discharge better than standard agm but not as good as lithium.


however like standard agm important to fully recharge as soon as possible-tppl agm sulfates just like standard agm.

if your really intererested google tppl gm and boats
