It sure does seem that Roadtrek is drifting away from the advantage they had on storage space. The power sofa and furnace move cost a bunch of space, and this sounds like it could really put a dent in what was left. The 2007 we are getting has the power sofa and moved heater, but in reality, we would have preferred the old loose cushions and bigger armoir of the earlier 2007's.

The must feel that the more "open" feel that other manufacturers are offerring is the way to more sales, even if it costs space. We don't agree, but we don't get a vote.


The bath is just an option if someone wants it. I think the more options the better. [emoticon]

I absolutely agree on that one, Rodger, I just hope they don't decide to drop the original designs if a lot of the sales move over to the new style. The major reason we chose Roadtrek was the space saving bathroom design and more storage than the "other" guys.

Why did you get the power sofa, instead of the two single beds/king?

Thank you Rodger.

I will take an awful lot to get me away from the aisle shower design. I think it makes the best sense of them all. The best of both worlds.

Having the storage and the large bathroom area is best for me. Having more options is a good thing (as you mentioned). One design isn't for everyone for sure.

We wound up with the power sofa because it was in the unit we could get a good price on, a leftover 2007 that we just bought now. Since we won't be doing any long trips until we both get retired in a couple years, we figured that the power couch would be nice for now, as we would be not having to carry very much for short jaunts. My guess is that when we go for real, we would leave the bed made up all the time, so if we do need more space under it for stuff, I will be able to remove the mechanism and get back to about the same space as there would be with the loose cushions.

It is interesting that the dealer we got it from sells almost no 190 or 170 models (that's why ours was available). He says his business is almost completely 210's, with most folks saying they want the enclosed bath.

Rodger,

Thanks for posting the pictures, Rodger. I am really looking forward to seeing this modification. We're still looking for that "close to perfect" [emoticon] motorhome and this may be it. The 190P is my favorite combination of size, handling, and interior comforts. If the enclosed bath feels usable, we may have to put one on order.

We came close to ordering one last year about this time, but having the aisle blocked (and the kitchen unusable) whenever someone was using the bathroom caused us to pull the plug on the deal. At our ages the bathroom gets plenty of use, so someone would frequently be trapped on one end of the RV or the other.

From the pictures, it looks like the side entrance has better access: the seat base used to extend into the doorway. That would be a nice improvement. Also, although your losing the glass-fronted TV components cabinet, your gaining a full overhead cabinet, so it's not a total loss. There is a nice feel of open space in the midsection. Really looking forward to seeing one now[emoticon].
