In a Category All It’s Own: The All-New Roadtrek N6 Active
In a category all its own, the latest creation form the Canadian Class B motorhome builder, Roadtrek, is half motorhome, half every day vehicle. The ingenious design and flexibility offered bythe company’s heralded N6 Active is a perfect fit for families needing a little extra elbow room or travelers who like the freedom of camping anywhere they choose without spending hundreds of dollars per fill-up.
The Roadtrek N6 Active has many useful applications. Some may see it as a unique minivan with a 9,000 pound towing capacity. Others may view it as an SUV that is fully-equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, outdoor shower, sink, and table. Either way you look at it, the N6 Active is a luxurious and attractive RV that gets 18 miles to the gallon. People can use it for daily use or use it to drive across the country in stylish and economical fashion. Upon first glance, it’s obvious that the N6 Active makes a terrific alternative to large SUV’s, minivans, and crossovers for active families.
The custom N6 is built upon a Nissan NV 2500 chassis that features the same ladder frame construction as the full-size Nissan Titan pick-up truck. With a length of 20’1″, the N6 Active has considerably more headroom, legroom, and elbow room than any minivan or SUV. According to Roadtrek, the revolutionary N6 can easily accommodate up to seven people. In fact, the third row bench seat can fit two adults or three children very comfortably all by itself.
Additionally, the N6 features four captain’s chairs, two of which are up front and two in the second row. Each of the captain’s chairs swivel 180 degrees to surround a versatile table that can be used in two interior locations. This makes it possible for up to seven people to all play a game of cards together inside the unique RV.
The N6 also comes with a built-in kitchenette that is perfect for meals on the road and a roof that pops up for a standing height of over six feet and sleeping accommodations for two kids or adults. Additionally, the rear bench seat folds down into a double bed that can sleep two more people. If that wasn’t enough, the N6 also features an optional folding mattress that can sleep one more person across the front captain’s chairs.
The feature-packed N6 also comes well-equipped with the latest navigation, video, audio, and phone electronic equipment. The icing on the cake is the tax deductions people can benefit from due to the N6’s classification as an RV. This allows owners to write off the N6 as a second residence and receive money back for any interest they pay.
With a base price only slightly higher than most standard luxury SUV’s, the demand for the N6 Active has been noticeable. After all, who wouldn’t want a stylish and luxurious RV with all of these features and the ability to sleep six comfortably at such a low price? When all of this comes in an off-road capable truck chassis and an engine that gets 18 miles to the gallon, many are simply left wondering what the catch is. Thankfully, there is none.
