As I write this from my Michigan home, we're in the throes of winter. Our RV travel time is a few weeks away yet, but that’s okay. To enjoy it, I need only glance at my office wall. Today, I’m looking at a photograph of a half-dozen horses. Just seeing that photo takes me back.
In December 1993, the owners of 20 Roadtrek motorhomes gathered in Titusville, Florida, to view the launch of the space shuttle Endeavor and attend the very first regional rally of FMCA’s new Roadtrek International (RTI) chapter. Attendees didn’t realize then that they were launching a community that would bring thousands of Roadtrek owners hours of pleasure, many delightful adventures, and countless friends.
I have to admit, I had my doubts about a life of RVing in a Type B motorhome.I was sure it would be fine for weekend getaways, but as the Open Mike tour and my Roadtreking.com blog took off and it became apparent that we were going to be traveling a lot more than I first planned, we secretly wondered whether the 22-foot Roadtrek RS-Adventurous we bought would be big enough.
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.
