In this latest edition of our How We Roll video segment, we introduce you to our brand new Roadtrek CS Adventurous XL, which we just picked up after trading in our ETrek with the folks at American RV in Grand Rapids, Mich.
It was an emotional turnover. We’ve sure had some great adventures in that Etrek. But we are really excited about the new places we’ll visit in the CS XL – with XL standing for “Extended Length” and referring to the 18 inches added to the rear of the Sprinter chassis that our coach is built on.
That extra room means we can pack more stuff and the larger 7-cubic foot refrigerator means we also can carry along more food. And with the super secret lithium battery power system I previously wrote about – and a rooftop filled with solar panels – this new Roadtrek promises to be the perfect boondocking machine that will let us do off-the-grid camping for greatly extended periods of time.
We’re still loading and packing it and doing a couple of simple mods and add-ons. Check out the video for the details.
We leave for our first trip in it Christmas Day, heading south from our Michigan home to Georgia, and then Florida for a few days. We’ll make it a shake drown run for the new RV and spend the time taking photos and videos for future reports.
