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

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.

BriggsboI'm looking for a way to buy spare parts as well...especially some way to fix/replace the side, rear windows which have become unglued and one actually fell out and broke. I need those little aluminum sliders and a piece of glass that's curved.
Margie LavinEvery time I write the compute freeze. Why is that?
ReneWe just bought a new Roadtrek 170 Versatile. I try to locate the optional folding mattress for the front to make a bed. I can't find it at the local dealer or online. Anybody knows where I can find them?
