A look at the new Roadtrek TS Adventurous

 A look at the new Roadtrek TS Adventurous

At the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association Trade Show in Louisville this week, Jennifer and I got to spend some time in Roadtrek Motorhomes’ brand new TS Adventurous – a high end model for 2014 built on the full sized Sprinter platform. This gorgeous new addition to the Roadtrek lineup is tricked out with a new interior and a proprietary technology system that lets you monitor and control your vehicle’s various comfort interior settings and  from a tablet or smartphone from anywhere via the Internet.

The Roadtrek TS Adventurous

Special on board cameras let you, say, check up on fido when you leave your pet back in the coach while taking a hike or when you are out for dinner. You can similarly adjust the air conditioning, lights and monitor battery, plumbing and electrical circuits.

As a tech guy, I was instantly hooked.

Jennifer liked the luxurious European styling, the new dark laminate polished cabinetry. It’s a charcoal-like color accented by chrome. There is a built in work station for a laptop or tablet, raised appliances on a granite counter for ease of use and an induction cooktop for faster and more even cooking.

Also included in the TS is LED strip lighting with dimming control, power awning with outdoor lights, heated floors, a large 1350 watt air conditioner and rear electrical and water hook ups. It can seat seven, four up front on swiveling Captain’s Chair, and three in the back on the sofa, which converts to a king sized-bed with the push of a switch

And the same innovations like solar power, heated floors, an engine generator and other features of models like the eTrek (also on the Sprinter platform) or the 40th Anniversary Special Edition (a Roadtrek 190 Popular model on the Chevy chassis) can be fitted to the TS Adventurous.
