Roadtrek Ranger

Been looking at Roadtreks new Ranger "B" van. The price is much more reasonable then the comparable 190, but wondering if anyone has purchased one and how they like it.

The chassis on the Ranger is a 2500 instead of 3500 like the 190 and the engine seems a little smaller, so I am questioning the power.

I would like it as an everyday vehicle.

The Ranger is a "stripper." You need to go through feature by feature to detail what has been omitted or downgraded from the regular model and decide for yourself if the differences matter to you. Also check for any quality short-cuts. For us, not worth it, and you might well suffer later on in depreciation and re-saleability.
For the same money, you might want to consider a recent used standard model.
My opinion FWIW.
