About Roadtrek Inc.:

Roadtrek Inc., a pioneer in the class B RV industry since 1974, continues to redefine the travel experience with innovative, user-oriented designs. With a rich history spanning five decades, Roadtrek remains a trusted name in the world of adventure and exploration.

It all started with a man and a dream. Jac Hanemaayer first became interested in the RV business while designing his own model with Home & Park Vehicles Limited in 1974. The process of combining the comforts of a larger motorhome into a compact and easy-to-drive van was such an enjoyable life experience for Hanemaayer, he decided to purchase the company. Being an innovator at heart, the Roadtrek motorhome was truly born in 1980 when Hanemaayer redesigned the vehicle to have the now famous sweeping roofline, lowered floor and three-section floor plan.

Roadtrek Inc. has come a long way from the early success in developing a comfortable and functional Class B motorhome. Roadtrek Inc. now offers a full line of Class B coaches built on Mercedes Sprinter and Ram ProMaster chassis which range in size and style to suit any RV lifestyle.

The Roadtrek brand was acquired by Groupe Rapido in 2019. The acquisition created Roadtrek Inc., headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario Canada with a sole focus on building quality Class B motorhomes for the North American market.
