Creative and important developments are continually added to todayâ€™s motorhomes, and among those leading the charge is a coach builder that has made type Bs since 1974. Roadtrek Motorhomes (formerly Home & Park), of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, introduced the type B SS-Agile in October 2006, and it’s one of two models the company builds on the Sprinter 2500 van chassis.
When a new RV is introduced, the questions to be answered are usually â€œwhat?â€ and â€œhow?â€ â€” â€œWhat does it come with?â€ and â€œHow long is it?â€ But the new 40-foot gas-powered Flounder motorhome has a big "who" and "why" behind it: Whoâ€™s manufacturing it and why?
When a 2005 Mandalay arrived on the West Coast this past November, I jumped at the chance to take my turn behind the wheel of this luxurious, diesel-powered motorhome. For a week, the 41-foot coach â€” model 40B â€” took me across a broad range of driving scenarios and Southern California landscapes.
Someone once said, and I’m undoubtedly paraphrasing, “Travel is not just about the exercise of getting from point A to point B, but rather the trip itself.” RVing, in general, and motorhoming, to be more specific, confirm that notion. And RVing in a Fleetwood Excursion, to be even more specific, is the proof at the bottom of the pudding bowl.
