We had so much fun on our cross country road trip we knew were going to be doing it again and again. We spent many hours discussing how we wouldn’t pick the M3 as the ideal long distance vehicle, given its complete lack of luggage space and tight quarters. And, while we enjoyed some of the B&Bs, we really did not want to stay in hotels every night. So the VW Jetta we bought for the road trip to Canada in 2010 was deemed the perfect choice — I mean Cathy’s brother and his family of 5 camped all over California on a three week tour out of the Jetta. But we are the crazy Colmans and just can’t leave a good thing alone ………..
Introducing the newest car, no it’s a truck, no it’s a road trip machine made by RoadTrek. I love it because I never have to sleep on the ground again – my tent camping days are over. And, Pancho, the dog, loves it because there is room for him to come along too.
This is a Mercedes Sprinter 2500 series with the 144″ wheelbase. It has the same footprint as a GM Suburban at 19.5′ in length and 6.5′ in width — it’s just that it is over 9′ high and has room for someone 6’3” to walk around inside. Inside it is fantastic with a king size bed, fridge, stove, oven, full bath with shower, and the list goes on. We are going to have sooo much fun I can’t believe it, heck we may never be home again the way things are going. Check it out..
I want to leave you with an image I think is so cool. Two German vans built 50 years apart — gotta love German engineering
