94 Roadtrek 190 Yes/No???

So, an inmate has posted this up locally...

165K miles......

But, at a pretty good price based on NADA/KBB values.

Anyone have one?

Good stuff, bad stuff, stuff to look for?

I have zero knowledge of RV's but see this as a pretty sweet compromise for a nice bed, heater, blah, blah, blah
without having a ginormous RV.

Dodge 350 chassis with a 318....know nothing about them....

Has working house AC, stove, fridge, heater. Tires OK. Newer springs, shocks.

Shitter (ALWAYS a good thing....) and shower...

Has a retractable awning.

Seems a perfect compromise from a trailer/Battlestar Gallacita RV.


Asking $7500. Seems like a really good deal to me....

But what do I know....

Nothing!!!

Please, oh please, school me ASAP!

I've been hunting for a late 90s model with 4 seats since last yr. They go quick here.

In any case the 165 is fine if upkept. 250 is common but at that mileage, useage, the house components will have been, or will need replacing.

I've seen some 70k ones but have been used as a house for 8 months a yr, so the motor and chassis was strong, but the house part of the van was all but worn out.

Hard to find a good medium. But as long as it's not rusted out or leaking, all the other parts can be replaced.

Leaks are usually the detrimate to all rvs, but these class B vans have the best chance of survival. If water gets in the ceiling or wall it'll destroy an rv, with this having the shell of a regular van, the exterior walls and floor should be able to hold up but you may have to strip some or a lot of the interior to clean it all up properly or else it could mold you to death.

7500 is a good price though, but be careful of what it may need and your capacity to deal with it.

Good luck.
