Streamlined, stylish, and a pleasure to drive, Roadtrek’s latest Class B traveler was first introduced to the industry late last year at the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, KY, and has been turning heads on showroom floors, and on the road, ever since.
This is our second outing in the ZION after using it first-hand for a few days in Niagara Falls this past August and once again, we were frequently stopped and questioned by curious RVers inquiring about this latest launch from Roadtrek.
The ZION will undoubtedly appeal to RVers with its contemporary styling, ample storage, plenty of headroom, and camping-friendly amenities. After putting these features (and more) to the test, it’s safe to say the ZION can offer continuous and comfortable camping experiences season after season.
In addition to its convertible facing lounges – that provide a relaxing living area by day and a large queen bed by night, RVers will appreciate the comfort of the wet/dry bath, (optional) 22-inch flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player, and galley that highlights a 5.0 cubic-foot fridge with freezer, large sink, two-burner propane stove top and microwave. An aluminum backsplash, a retractable leaf extension, Fantastic Fan and various 12V outlets/USB ports are additional touches.Riding on the Dodge Ram ProMaster Chassis, Roadtrek engineers lowered the center of gravity on the ZION to deliver a comfortable driving experience, plus ease of handling that could be compared to that of a much smaller vehicle. Add the 3.6L V6 280 hp engine with FWD six-speed 62 TE auto transmission and the new Zion is ready to roll when you are. – RVL Editor/Steve Fennell
