I think the best hope for some RT parts is to see about finding someone with working items, having someone with a 3D scanner have them scanned and made into STL files, so one can print replacements...

Those deadbolt locks seem to be a very common item that is sold for European vans, mainly because they ensure the doors stay closed, and are far less ugly than the hockey puck locks/hasps sold in the...

With Roadtrek gone, room for new companies?

With Roadtrek/Hymer/Carado/EGHNA gone, that takes out an entire market segment of class "B"s. Now, your cheapest "B" is now a Winnebago Travato.

I wonder if small companies/upfitters would be...

I was reading on FB groups today that RV service depots are told to not expect any parts needed from RT/Carado/Hymer/etc. So, anything related to e-Trek or anything RT has that is proprietary, you...

Here in Texas, BOVs, provided the thief did not make the vehicle move, are simple misdemeanors. This means at worst, someone who gets caught doing a smash and grab might spend a night in jail until...

My take on the OT:

A "B" is great for trips and boondocking, but I definitely wouldn't want to live in it, full-time. At the minimum, I want a "home base", even if it is just a small house. ...

I have seen some that use two hoses, and those cool far better than the ones that just have one hose going out. Downside is that they take a ton of space.

Condos have HOA bills, and assessments. You could be on the hook for thousands, with 30 days to pay thousands of dollars, or else get foreclosed on, with almost no notice.

Maybe a compromise...

A friend of mine used a good amount of that stuff to insulate his van. He swears by it, says it has helped a lot in keeping the heat in, when he is in cold weather, as well as noise dampening.

European makers have a number of those narrow class "C"s. Even Airstream is charging nearly a quarter of a million dollars for one. It would be interesting to see those not just in the "Cadillac"...
