Roadtrek’s SS-Ideal Sports 3-Foot Rear Slideout
Canadian van camper builder Roadtrek Motorhomes Inc., Kitchener, Ontario, has engineered a Sprinter chassis-based Class B motorhome with a slideout. The 3-foot-deep slide in Roadtrek’s new 20-foot SS-Ideal motorhome extends from the rear door opening and contains a convertible queen sofa. The SS-Ideal is built on the high-mileage 8,550-pound GVWR Sprinter 2500 chassis equipped with a 154-hp six-cylinder Mercedes-Benz diesel engine. ”The SS Ideal has the livability of a coach that is 3 feet longer, but it’s still only 20 feet long when it’s being driven,” said President Jeff Hanemaayer, who reported Roadtrek sold 19 SS-Ideals the first day of the Louisville Show. ”It appeals to our typical target market — the soon-to-be-retired and up.” Nonetheless, Hanemaayer predicted, the SS-Ideal may open a new market for Roadtrek. ”This definitely will appeal to a whole range of buyers who typically buy Class C motorhomes,” he said. MSRP: $97,110.
