Roadtrek hosted 40th anniversary rally in Branson
KITCHENER, Ontario — Roadtrek Motorhomes announced today it hosted a very successful rally from May 20 to 24 to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Five hundred Roadtrek owners in 259 Roadtreks from all over the United States and Canada gathered to enjoy several days with Roadtrek senior management, sales staff, engineering representatives, and service technicians in Branson, Mo.
At the Branson Rally, Roadtrek introduced its 40th Anniversary Edition model. Built on the Chevy Express 3500 van chassis, this new product includes 205 watts of solar, 3,000-watt inverter, 3,500-watt engine generator, four coach batteries, new bamboo décor, new carpets, stainless steel exterior trim, all season RVing, which means no more winterizing. It also include the Alde hydronic heat and hot water system.
In addition, Roadtrek also displayed its full product line, and introduced new color schemes and styles of décor on its newest products. These products also include the camping focused CS‐Adventurous and the technology focused E‐trek, both built on the Mercedes Sprinter 3500 van chassis. It was an exciting week for new products, and it was important to get direct feedback from owners, and share knowledge.
Upon arrival, all attendees were offered a free exterior vehicle wash. Roadtrek technicians and engineers provided free technical support to all attendees. To support the owners hundreds of minor repairs, training and improvements were completed. Seminars where given on various topics of interest: solar and power management, fast winterizing, electronics training, and generator maintenance. A separate event was organized to collect owners’ feedback on design improvements.
Throughout the week attendees enjoyed delicious meals, and all sorts of first‐rate entertainment, including Clay Cooper with the group from his “Oh What a Night” show; Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede Dinner and Show Theatre; Frankie Valli Singers, including photographs and autographs; Hillbilly Party; singing and dancing with the Lennon Cathart Singers (brothers of the Lennon Sisters) and The Platters.
Other activities included a golf tournament (with a hole‐in‐one prize of brand new Roadtrek); Roadtrek “Olympic Games”; buses to various Branson attractions and shopping areas; and a caricaturist on site.
Roadtrek provided catered meals throughout the event.
Although a tornado dampened spirits on the first day, $2,000 was successfully raised during the rally for the Moore Public Schools Tornado Relief Fund.
“It is a rare opportunity to get such a large group of our owners together with a multi‐disciplinary group of staff, share notes, and gain the benefit of knowledge of our end users, the ones who really know what is going on out in the field ” noted Roadtrek President Jim Hammill. “We held this rally to thank our owner body, who we owe so much to for the many years of loyalty and participation with us.”
“We look forward to another forty years leading the Class B marketplace for engineered products, with the latest technology, highest quality, while providing first rate customer service”, added Andy Weller, Roadtrek’s chairman.
