Our experience with Roadtrek was that we found them to be “quirky”. As an experienced RVer, we found the septic hookups, the utilities layout, the fresh water system, the charging system and the shower all to be Roadtrek peculiar. Most other B manufacturers conform to standard RV layouts as far as hookups are concerned. We have found Pleasureway our favorite of all the B vans out there.

Quirky? I never thought of those systems as quirky but I smiled when I read chast's post because..........they are a little quirky. But, they have worked well for us for over twenty years and we have found the systems to be reliable. I still pause when I try to remember which way those valves go to switch between the water tanks so I just always leave them combined and use both tanks. I suspect most owners do the same.

I have owned both a MG and a Austin Healey in my past and now THAT is quirky so I probably measure most things compared to "positive earth"!

Hi PSW,

No doubt you have had encounters with Lucas, Prince of Darkness.

Granted, we are driving a Transit Cargo van that I converted to our needs; but I can add that having a "small and nimble" vehicle can be good. Today, coming home from a 10-day drive through the SW USA (where we could go anywhere, park anywhere, etc) on I-80, a car in the left lane suddenly veered into our lane. There were concrete barriers to our right - no shoulder. Hubby hit the brakes and swerved as close as possible to the barrier and the car missed us by a hairs-breadth. Had we still been in our Class C or with our 5er, there WOULD have been an accident.

I don't believe you mentioned the length of time you spent on the road per trip. We have been comfortable in our "quirky" (aka innovative) Roadtrek for everything from multiple-week trips to daily trips. We go much more now because it takes no time to get ready. Fire up the fridge, figure out the cloths and go. Just got back from a music festival. It works great for taking a break, meals, bathroom stops, etc. As I stated earlier, it works well for us, but make sure you have a bed that fits you.
