Looking to move from Roadtrek RS Adventurous (2008) to either a short A or C

We really like our Roadtrek but also like to take our grand children along for the journey and need a separate bedroom. So we keep on looking for a unit that has the separate bedroom but want the preferred benefit of the Roadtrek's ease of touring, parking and moving in and out of traffic.
Recognizing that we are all different I'm hoping someone might have an understanding of this need and suggest units we might consider as we search?



PS - we really are not too interested in the typical C front with the massive overhand and bunk above but prefer the more streamlined styles of a smaller overhand with the entertainment center in that area.

We had a T28 Bounder Class A, that was small enough to do what you are talking about as far as driving. Sure it is bigger, and wider, but we had it in 'in town' traffic many times. Can park it shopping lots by taking two end to end spaces. Fleetwood also made this size in Flair/Southwinds lines too.

IMO, up to a 30' Class A would serve just as well as the 28' size. With two slides, or more, you have plenty of room.

Our layout was on a Non slide, and it had a rear bedroom with a door. Our Daughter slept many a night on the bed that is made from the dinette area. The 30' also have a sofa that folds into a bed.

Ours was on the 99 and above F53 chassis, and with some extra suspension add on's - it handled very well, and tracked true.

Rexhall also has rigs in this size that we really liked, due to their safety metal cage construction.

Best of luck on your search,

Good point.I am in Eastern Canada. Nova Scotia. So I worry about warranties and the issues around that as well.
Would ideally love to find something on a Sprinter cab as the RS - Adventurous is except new unit would be dual wheels.

So if diesel probably in the $100k region but if gas is all I can find then obviously less.

This figure is with my unit traded in which new in 2008, and now with 32,000 km on it should be worth $70k but welcome comments and suggestions.
