Add to that the stainless steel trim that wraps the body’s exterior frame and you will quickly see why Roadtrek leads the way in Class B motorhomes.

Open the doors to the RV and the luxury continues, from the prominent tan colored leather captain seats and sofa, to the increased head room, integrated shower floor and high quality, artistic bamboo cabinetry this 40th Anniversary Edition is sure to impress.

“As we celebrate forty years in the business, we wanted to make a model that encompasses everything that has made Roadtrek successful over the years, and we have done that with this special edition vehicle. Forty years is a great achievement and although we are celebrating the past, we are excited for the future as we have many more exciting new products that will continue to lead the way in the Class B market” noted Roadtrek President, Jim Hammill.

As expected, the engine generator and more batteries found their way into the Chevies, probably based on Campskunk's testing and use? I would be inclined to idle the Chevy gas engine before the Sprinter, so that is a good thing, but I still wouldn't want to run it all day to get AC. For cool climates, perfect. 205 watts of solar and 400AH of batteries (maybe 440) would cover most things. I wonder if they have the compressor frig also? I would think they would.

Sounds like they used the Ranger higher roof, but still put in the drop floor to get more headroom. Wouldn't matter to us short folks, but most are bigger than we are, so that should make it more appealing to many folks.

Perhaps the imminent death of the Chevy models is premature.
