RoTi review and forum
RV Business said on 4/12/2010 - Retail sales of Class B motorhomes rose 82% in February 2010 over February 2009, Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI) reported today.

In its inaugural report on Class B sales to RV Business, Grand Rapids, Mich.-based SSI noted that Roadtrek Motorhomes Inc., based in Kitchener, Ontario, led the way with a 47.7% market share in February.
Fellow Canadian builder Pleasure-Way Industries Ltd. was second with a 19.8% share. Thor Industries Inc. was the top U.S. builder with a 14.4% market share. Winnebago Industries Inc. rounded out the top four

(As Roaming Times reported in an earlier article:
“The rebound in Class B sales is probably the best kept secret in the industry,” said Roadtrek Chairman Jeff Hanemaayer. “And I think it’s a trend that will continue. We have the oldest buyers so we’ll benefit as more baby boomers move into their late 50’s and 60’s.” see article)

Just a couple of the positive comments received about Roadtrek...
I was not an RV person until we saw the Roadtrek. Our whole lives have changed for the better! Whoever thought of putting that much in a 19 feet van must be a genius...

Re: Roadtrek 190 class B motorhomewallyI bought a 95 roadtrek w/125K miles. the 94 van has a shorter wheelbase and gives it a short turn ability which is great.After 60'000miles I have enjoyed it very much. WE have gone coast to coast and very seldom stayed at a camp ground. Climbing the western mountains had to turn off a/c to avoid over heating. My only complaint is I have a versatile so now thinking a later model popular with less than 185,000 miles. What a great motor home.
Re: Roadtrek 190 class B motorhomeAdavanWE Like our 1998 dodge 318 popular roadtrek. About 14 gal/miles. Had to replace screws in bath door with nuts/bolts. Works good now. Fridge on propane quit. Needs to be cleaned with compressed air. Replaced water pump and the pulleys for the serpentine belt. Use Goodyear to get of squeaks. Rock steady. Won't buy the Chevy. Too low to ground. Sprinter great if you have lots of $$$$.
Re: Roadtrek 170 class B motorhomeBetty HarrisonDoes the roadtrek tow and what can it tow. Engine big enough to tow (boat - ATVs - small trailer)?

Re: Roadtrek 210 class B motorhomechuckPOS!!!! 4k miles and the front springs and front and rear shocks all bad! Front was sitting on the rubber bump stops at 4000 miles! Had them all replaced on my money! Wonders all over the road. Still pulls to the left and Chevy place cant fix it. Bathroom door broke and LP gas valve leaked all my propane out on the drive home just off the show room floor, front of the fridge came off a few days later. The van is rated at GVW 9500 lbs. With no people it is 9100lbs. Factory tires are rated at 1300lbs each. Too light duty maybe...Don't know how to get it fixed..... want to sell it. Runs good and well equipped. But running down the interstate at 70 it goes from one side of the road to the other. Hard to drive. NEVER AGAIN will I buy one! Chevy says Road-trek put too much weight on it and Road-trek says Chevy's chassis is too light. Neither will fix it. now I have a $100,000.00 in a van that is not safe to drive over 40 mph.

Re: Roadtrek 190-Popular class B motorhomeMrargie LavinOne of the many problems we have with our 2010 Roadtrek 190 Popular is that when we open the awning, we cannot get into our van. They have installed the awning too low. Is anybody had a problem like that?.
Re: Roadtrek 190-Popular class B motorhomeTomTo Maggie... We purchased a 2011 Popular- Same window problem. Dealer removed & resealed. No problem since. Can't comment on the toilet, but suggest that a dealership will remedy.
Re: Roadtrek 190 class B motorhomeMargie LavinEvery time I write the compute freeze. Why is that?
Re: Roadtrek 190-Popular class B motorhomeMargie LavinLast August we bought a 2010 Roadtrek Popular and have had problems since then. We bought a lemon. The major one is the side window in the back leaks, The side wall and bed gets wet, and the pump for the toilet does not work. We live in a small province and nobody knows how to change that pump, and we can't find where the problem is for the window. Is anybody had problems like that.
