Roadtrek 170-Popular class B motorhome exterior

Roadtrek says "The 170 has many features you take for granted in a car, like better fuel economy than most class B's or camper vans (never mind larger motorhomes), along with the full-size motorhome features you would expect from any Roadtrek."

"With three seats at the front and an L-shaped lounge at the rear, the 170-Popular makes a great passenger vehicle for five. Add a fully-equipped galley and many other features and you’ve got a nice motorhome for two or three."  We show pictures of the beautiful interior below:

Roadtrek 170-Popular class B motorhome interior - seating and table arrangement

The Roadtrek 170-Popular seats five and sleeps three with ease - optional folding mattress required at front.  You can see the seating and sleeping arrangements is the pictures above and below.
Roadtrek says: "The rear L-shaped lounge converts easily to a 6’2” double bed that is both spacious and comfortable. With “across the rear” storage below the bed, you have all kinds of room for the things you want to bring along. The front cloverleaf dining table stores neatly out of the way, creating even more room to stretch out and relax."

The flat screen TV and DVD player are optional but as Roadtrek says: "You have an entertainment system that takes up very little room while providing you with something to do on a rainy day. The TV rotates into the aisle so you can watch it from the front captain’s seats – the most comfortable seats in the house."

You can see the arrangement of the 170 on the floorplans below.  We think it really is a clever and useful layout.  The bathroom area is temporarily enclosed with bifold door that also creates a private change area

wallyI 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.
AdavanWE 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 $$$$.
Betty HarrisonDoes the roadtrek tow and what can it tow. Engine big enough to tow (boat - ATVs - small trailer)?
PaulChuck, I had the same problem with my Roadtrek 190 after hitting a pothole, replaced both front rotors, front left bearing & ABS brake assembly, out of pocket, now handling and running fine.

diskuszucht-feegeHallo Bin von dem Wohnmobil sehr Begeistert und Würde mir gern einen Gebrauchten Kaufen. Wer kann mir Helfen?auch gern ein Import. Würde mich über Nachrichten freuen. Info@diskuszucht-feege.de Und Danke schon mal im Vorfeld. it freundlichen Grüßen Ekhardt Feege
chuckPOS!!!! 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.
Wayne loweryI just bought a 2002 roadtrek 190 popular . Absolutely love it.can anyone help me find the right rear battery door. Mine fell off when I left the dealer.
DaveWish they were 4 wheel drive, The mountain passes are no fun in 2 wheel drive and when we get to the ocean its nice to park on the beach.maybe you have a good answer why they don't, I can pay extra for it no problem. Thank You, Dave
