Can You Really Use A Roadtrek As A Daily Driver?2014_Roadtrek_190
Class B motorhomes have many of the features drivers are looking for in a vehicle to use every day. The Roadtrek is becoming one of the most popular options for this purpose. This is partly because it shares some convenient features with traditional vans. It is best to understand the pros and cons of using a Roadtrek as a daily driver.

Fuel Efficiency

One of the main advantages of a Roadtrek over other types of motorhomes is that it is very fuel-efficient. The Roadtrek gets roughly the same efficiency per gallon of gas as comparable vans. This means the cost of ownership as an everyday vehicle is not any more than other vans. The high fuel-efficiency also extends the range of the Roadtrek so that drivers can go farther every week without needing to refuel constantly.

Easy to Handle

A Roadtrek has the advantage of being built on top of a standard frame. The transmission, brakes and suspension all combine to make the motorhome easy to handle. This allows the Roadtrek to be used on tight city streets as well as winding highways. The issues with handling that affect some other larger motorhomes are not present with the Roadtrek. This means a smoother and safer drive each day.

Low Ground Clearance

One of the issues that some drivers have with the Roadtrek is the low ground clearance. The lowest parts of the motorhome are closer to the ground than traditional cars. This is not really a problem on streets and highways. It can present issues when driving on uneven dirt roads or when driving over large pieces of debris.

No Problems with Parking

The length and width of a Roadtrek is very close to traditional vehicles like vans. The size allows the Roadtrek to avoid the parking restrictions imposed on larger motorhomes. This is very important when using a Roadtrek for everyday driving. The motorhome can park in most areas along with standard cars and vans. It will not be a problem to find a parking spot when shopping, going to work or attending an event.

Changing Tires Can Take Extra Effort

Drivers might have to exert extra effort if the Roadtrek gets a flat tire while on the road. Although changing the tire is fairly straightforward, dealing with the weight of the motorhome could cause problems for some people. Flat tires are not really an issue for drivers who have roadside assistance plans.

Space and Convenience

Inside storage and convenience are two benefits of using a Roadtrek as a daily driver. Driving in the motorhome means there is always a bathroom and sink nearby. The wide aisles and rear bed provide enough space to transport nearly anything back to the home. The extra space and convenience make a Roadtrek a very practical everyday vehicle.

On October 29th Mark and Kristine Wathke concluded their vacation in Yellowstone National Park and headed home to Wisconsin. Wyoming launched a statewide search when the Wathke’s didn’t arrive. After nearly a week trapped in their car with little food, a rancher found them. While it’s true that most lost campers will be rescued, it makes more sense to Be Prepared.

Gas, diesel, and propane tanks run out. The one thing that doesn’t is the sun. Well, … watching disaster TV makes it clear that the sun might go out, but if it does don’t count on a rescue. Stretching the fuel dollar as far as possible while on the road makes sense whether the objective is survival, comfort, or environmentalism.

Roadtrek RS E-TrekRoadtrek-e_trek-solar-panels_lrg

Historically, anything that even looked like an amenity on a Class B Motorhome meant shorter hops between refueling stops because everything on-board had to run off the generator. Recent advances in solar panels that increase power conversion, as well as, advances in battery technology, have changed that. True. It’s still not feasible to run the whole trip on solar, it may never be, but a 245 watt solar panel makes it practical to run the electrical appliances and power the outlets that way. That frees up more of the diesel fuel supply that efficiently provides both heat and hot water. The inverter supplies a whopping 5,000 watts, so when you figure that a PC and a monitor uses about 270 watts, and a big screen TV uses about 150 watts, the E-Trek has plenty of juice available.

Easier to Use

Since the E-Trek’s systems are fully integrated, it’s not even strictly necessary to hook up to outside power. Roadtrek makes it possible if you want to hook up, but you don’t have to. Thoughtful features like that mean that you have less to learn to enjoy and E-Trek than in a traditional RV.

Environmentally Friendly

Roadtrek designed the RS E-Trek to be environmentally friendlier than other RV’s on the road. If you’re the sort of traveler who thinks about being environmentally responsible at the same time as having a permanent luxury bathroom and shower, look no further. The E-Trek leaves a smaller carbon emissions footprint than other RV’s while offering greater luxury, seating 2-7 passengers, and sleeping up to four people.


Roadtrek makes getting the exact vehicle you want easy too, and it’s not just about color, either. A variety of floor plans are available for chassis sold in both the US and Canada. Furniture and appliances including armoires, mattresses, and televisions are all factory-installable options. Additional safety features are available, too.


Roadtrek claims the title for the greatest functionality in any motor home or van on the road today. Its luxury, customizability, simplicity, and environmental friendliness make it a must see for new RV shoppers.

N6-ActiveThe Roadtrek N6 Active is the latest state-of-the-art product released by the Canadian-based company. Centered around a Nissan NV2500 HD chassis, the N6 Active RV is propelled by the same 5.6 liter V8 engine and transmission found in Nissan’s Titan pickup truck, and it also features the truck’s same rugged boxed ladder frame. However, the upgraded suspension featured on the N6 is much more plush and similar to driving a Cadillac.

It may be a plush ride, but this bad boy of a vehicle cannot be accused of being soft. In fact, this revolutionary Class B motorhome has a cargo-carrying capacity of over 1,200 pounds, which is more than enough for six people and plenty of travel gear. Furthermore, it can tow up to 7950 pounds of boats, jeeps, or whatever toys a consumer can imagine. This makes it a terrific transportation option for those classic family vacations. (more…)

210-nascarNASCAR tailgating is always a great time. It is almost as enjoyable as watching the race itself. The thrill of sharing the event with loved ones makes it even better. One of the best ways for a family to make a trek to a NASCAR event is to bring along a stellar RV like the 2013 Roadtrek 210 Popular. Here are the ways that this awesome vehicle will enhance the NASCAR racing experience.

Better Food and BeveragesOne of the best parts of the NASCAR racing experience is all the great food and drinks that are enjoyed by attendees.

Its efficient generator provides constant electricity that allows users to attach things like a blender to mix up great frozen drinks.It also has a big refrigerator to keep drinks and food chilled. This allows tailgaters to avoid the hassle of constantly getting more ice to keep things cold in a cooler. This RV also comes with a built-in coffee maker to help tailgaters keep energized during the weekend.There is also a sink to make preparing food and cleaning up dirty dishes a snap. Users will also enjoy the microwave that is a standard feature with the 2013 Roadtrek 210 Popular.

Rest Well

Though it is a lot of fun to attend a NASCAR event, it is also quite tiring. By the end of the day, attendees are ready to get some much-needed shuteye. Having an RV allows them to sleep in comfort. The Roadtrek 210 Popular has sleeping room for up to three people. There is a lot to be said for sleeping in an air-conditioned RV during the hot, humid nights that are found at NASCAR events in the South.

Drive in Comfort

Of course, the biggest hassle with going to a NASCAR event is dealing with the horrible traffic created by tens of thousands of fans all trying to arrive and leave at the same time. Having an RV for the event allows people to arrive early before the crowds. It also allows them to relax in comfort while they wait for the traffic to thin out before they leave.

When it comes time to drive the 2013 Roadtrek 210 Popular, drivers will find that it handles like a dream. It is smaller than most other RVs, so it can zip in and out of traffic with ease. It also gets great gas mileage.

I like old TV shows.

Old, and I will admit, somewhat strange. Turn on the Alfred Hitchcock Hour, the Outer Limits, or my personal favorite, the Twilight Zone, and I won’t talk to you until the show is over. One network has a Twilight Zone marathon over New Years—and what I don’t stay up to see I record, even though I haveINVENTORY2 seen most of those shows over and over. They just don’t make TV shows like that anymore.

Now, we have talked about the benefits of the Roadtrek Class B motor home, the best selling such vehicle in North America for twenty years. Regardless of whether your trip is near or far, you never have to leave home without all the comforts you are used to. Your own shower, kitchen, bedroom, and most importantly, entertainment area! Imagine after a long day on the road, and exhausting time of travel and sightseeing, how about a little rest and relaxation with a Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock DVD? You can enjoy it from the twin beds in the back, or the captains’ seats up front. That’s living, folks, and living large at that!

There are so many positives to a Roadtrek. It’s easy to handle on the open road or in heavy traffic. Parking is a breeze because of the Roadtrek’s smaller size. It gets much better gas mileage than a full sized SUV. Make your own meals, no more hotels and loading and unloading the van. No more restroom breaks needed in the middle of nowhere—a Roadtrek makes traveling a pleasure across town or across the country. Wherever you want to go, the Roadtrek is more than capable of taking you there.

And to top it all off, to make it a perfect experience, there are the Alfred Hitchcock and Twilight Zone DVDs. Be careful though, you might have to sleep with the lights on!

Their entire inventory can be viewed online, and then a quick call to one of their van experts at 1-866-975-3287 sets everything in motion.

How many family vacations have been ruined by that one little word? Rain.INVENTORY2

Summer is the time of family reunions, trips to the beach, the neighborhood barbecue, meeting family and friends at the big game, cross country jaunts with the kids. All those activities have one big thing in common—they suck in the rain.

Country singer Luke Bryan had a recent hit single titled “Rain is a Good Thing.” It’s true, to a point. Crops don’t grown without rain, but too much rain at this time of the year keeps farmers from even getting into the fields to plant. Rain that is much needed in July is despised in May—and dry weather that we crave now can be a disaster later in the growing season.

The point of all this rambling (yes, there is a point) is that your family vacation, regardless of its destination, can be rain-proofed with a Roadtrek Class B Motorhomes from Dave Arbogast in Troy, Ohio. Look, the kids get bored on sunny days, much less rainy days when your activities are limited. With a Roadtrek, you can set them up with a video game or movie, and not even know they are in the van for hours at a time.

With the spacious sleeping accommodations, the Roadtrek certainly pays off for mom and dad too. After a long day behind the wheel, Dad can relax watching his favorite movie or listening to music, and mealtime and cleanup is a no hassle event in the traveler friendly galley. Throw in good fuel efficiency, extremely important in this day of high gas prices, easy handling on the open road and heavy traffic, and the ability to fit in most car sized parking spaces, and it’s little wonder that the Roadtrek has been the top selling class b motor home in North America since 1990.

Now for the easy part. If there is a Roadtrek in your future, begin and end your search at Dave Arbogast in Troy, Ohio. The largest new and used van dealer in the country, Arbogast has a tremendous selection of new and used Class B camper vans, and a professional knowledgeable sales staff that will help you every step of the way. After your purchase is complete, Arbogast can see to it that your vehicle is delivered right to your doorway, anywhere in the United States.

Don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself. Call 1-866-975-3287 and find out how easy owning a Roadtrek can be!

INVENTORY2I know several people who like to travel the country during the summer attending country music shows. There are several that are 3 to 4 days long, and bring in 12-15 different acts for a weekend of music. Many are held around campgrounds, where the music lovers can party all day, and then camp overnight.

All of that is good, if you are into that. What I don’t understand is that these people prefer sleeping in tents, on the ground at these events. That I don’t get.

These events would be a lot more enjoyable, if you ask me, in a Class B Motorhome. You could travel to the event, park, enjoy the day’s festivities, then overnight in the Roadtrek. It makes a lot more sense than sleeping on the ground for four nights.

After the day’s concert, my friends could relax in the rear lounge area. They could get rid of the dirt and grime in the spacious shower, then kick back and watch a DVD or listen to some more music. They wouldn’t have to spend a fortune on food and drink, as long as they kept the refrigerator well stocked. It just makes a lot more sense to me.

The great thing about a Roadtrek is its useful at home too. Many owners use their Roadtreks as a second vehicle, to run errands and cart the kids from place to place. It handles well, parks easily, and is one of the most fuel efficient vehicles on the road.

You still have time to get your class b camper for the summer concert season. Check out the great inventory, then Call Dave Arbogast at 1-866-975-3287 and talk to one of their van specialists. One trip in a Roadtrek and you will never want to sleep on the ground again!

I am about to make a huge confession. Yes, it’s time for me to come out of the closet. I never miss an episode of “Dancing with The Stars”.

I know a lot of guys who actually watch the show, and why not? The women are attractive, the music is great, and there is always the chance of someone making a fool of themselves. I didn’t think I would ever get hooked, but I am—and Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith even won the competition a few seasons back. And hey, it IS a competition. Men like watching competition, right?

Now that that’s out of the way, and what a relief, by the way, lets talk about something that really matters, It’s almost vacation time, and when planning the annual summer trip, you need to plan on traveling in a Roadtrek Class B Motorhomes.

The best selling class b Motor home in North America for the past 20 years. Roadtrek can take you anywhere you want to go, and take you there in comfort and style. The family vacation takes on a whole new outlook when you don’t have to stop to eat, stop for endless restroom breaks, or lug everything out of the vehicle at the end of the day and into the hotel.

Sure, gas prices are high, but the Roadtrek is very fuel efficient, and when you figure the money you will save on eats and accommodations, the vacation you once thought would not happen is back on the calendar.

Here’s a great thing about the Roadtrek—you don’t have to be on a two week trip to enjoy it. Many use their Roadtrek as a second family vehicle—to take the kids to school, go to the store or laundry, even to take the spouse on a long overdue dinner date. The Roadtrek can do it all, and you are never without the comforts of home, regardless of how far you travel.

I also have no hesitation with this suggestion—The ONLY place to even look for a Roadtrek is Dave Arbogast in Troy, Ohio.
