1999 Roadtrek Versatile 200 (Class B RV built from a Chevy 3500 Express Van chassis). 90k miles, drives great.

Private seller. Clean title. $23,500 firm. Serious inquiries only.

We loved camping with this van, but decided to upgrade to the Versatile 210 model (to get the fully enclosed bathroom for our growing family), so we're selling this one. It's a sweet fully-contained motorhome that fits in your driveway and can park in most regular parking spots. There's not many of these in Minnesota or the midwest at all, I had to fly to Georgia to buy this one myself when I found it.

This is a pretty fair price, here's a RV site to give you an idea what these sell for and where they tend to be located (https://www.rvtrader.com/Roadtrek-200/rvs-for-sale?make=roadtrek%7C2292972&model=200%7C764848271&modelkeyword=1&vrsn=results)

I'll try to include as many details as I can here to answer basic questions, and you can email with other questions:

It's a whole RV packed into a 20' van, with plenty of storage. Fits in your driveway. Sleeps 4, seats 4 seatbelted while driving. Good shape inside and out.

This is a unique model in the Roadtrek family of camper vans, with the most storage room inside and out of any of their models. Here's a brochure of all the 1999 Roadtrek models with a full list of features:

-Rear U-shaped dinette with dining table and seating for 4 converts to full size 2-person bed
-4 front seats convert to 2 twin beds (suitable for kids up to teenage size, not really for adults)
-4 front seats also swivel around to create 2nd eating area with it's own table, for 4
-Curtains pull shut around all windows for privacy at night
-Aisle bathroom with toilet and shower (privacy doors open up to block the aisle and make it a bathroom)
-Awning on one side of van, works great (opens manually, no electric parts to get broken)
-Outside shower hookup
-Stovetop inside van (LP)
-Sink
-Large fridge, 3-way (AC, DC, LP)
-A/C
-Furnace (powered by LP)
-10 gallon LP tank
-Freshwater tank, grey water tank, and black water tank, gravity dumping tubes all in working order (not the electric macerator pump that's in newer units -- which is kind of nice, it's just gravity, nothing that would break down and need repairing)
-Hookups for 30 amp electric and city water
-House battery works well
-Monitor panel shows levels in the tanks and charge in battery
-Fire extinguisher, smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector
-Tons of storage inside and out, exterior storage has a pass-through compartment in rear that runs underneath the whole bed area (unique to this 200 model), for example we fit an inflatable kayak in that compartment with life vests, paddles, grill, chairs, and more. We've got a family of 4 and don't even fill up all the storage areas inside.
-All bug screens and windows are in great shape, they open up in a way that you can have them open for breeze even when it's raining.
-Upholstery and carpets are in great shape.
-New backup camera (screen is embedded in the rearview mirror itself, pretty slick).
-New stereo and speakers (CD, radio, Bluetooth, USB), we had it installed so that it takes power from the house (rear) battery and/or shore power when engine is turned off, not the vehicle battery.
-New hot water heater.
-New caulking around rear lights (there was some water leaking coming in one light fixture when we bought it, now fixed)
-'Fantastic Fan' in roof with multiple speeds.
-We'll include a Yakima 'LongHaul' 4-bike hitch rack specially rated for RVs with locks and keys to lock rack to hitch and bikes to rack, costs $329 new (https://www.amazon.com/Yakima-8002476-Longhaul-Bike-Rack/dp/B01N4RV9IB/ref=sr_1_14?keywords=yakima+hitch+rack&qid=1560439942&s=gateway&sr=8-14)
-We haven't smoked or brought pets in the van, doesn't seem that the previous owner did either (we bought it from a dealer).
-There is a generator (for use when 'boondocking' if you want the A/C or microwave) but when we bought it we were told it doesn't work, and may need just a new carburetor. We never planned to use the generator anyways so that didn't bother us, but it's there if you'd like to fix it up an use I yourself.
-We own it outright, no lien on the title.
-We've got all the original appliance manuals, and a lot of maintenance paperwork.
-We had a mechanic go through it all last year, and fixed a couple mechanical things in the Chevy part of the van, there's no current mechanical issues now.
-Chevy A/C and heat up front work great.
-Gets about 15 MPG.
-Wasn't driven in salty Minnesota winter, it was stored in a covered pole barn.

Side note: If you're new to using an RV or this kind of RV, there's a private facebook group just for owners of 'vintage' Roadtreks like this one, and the site is a wealth of info and advice from really friendly folks, people post a question (what's this knob for, what pressure should I put in the tires, how do I winterize it, etc) and there's always like 20 replies from knowledgeable people. We've learned a ton just searching through that page, and quickly learned how to use this RV even though it was our first time owning one.

Issues that we were planning on fixing but just haven't, just for full disclosure:
-One exterior storage door needs it's rubber hinge replaced. We found the part for $60 online, and can send you the link. I found detailed instructions on that facebook group for how to do the replacement yourself, or you could have a shop do it for about $200-300 I believe.
-The A/C works and does blow cold air, but it just can't keep up with the hottest of days, we learned the hard way. It's a standard 'window unit' A/C like you'd put in a home, not a specialized RV kind, so shouldn't be hard to fix or replace.
-There's some tape residue around one tail light from when I covered it with tape prior to having it re-caulked. I had meant to clean that up before posting this for sale, but just haven't gotten to it yet.
