2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 11/3/23 - Bilstein Shocks and Alignment

I recently purchased a set of front and rear Bilstein shocks with the intent of installing them myself. Changed my mind and took the van to a shop in Bradenton, FL. They installed the shocks nicely for me in addition to performing a front wheel alignment. I had a bad case of negative camber on the d...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 11/6/23 - Fiamma Awning Removal

Due to the fact that the van was leaking water into the headliner on the passenger front window area, I found it necessary to remove the Fiamma awning so that I would be able to apply a bead of sealant along the entire seam in the channel/gutter where the Fiberglas roof is attached to the van. You c...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 11/6/23 - Front Window Leak

Found a leak in the front top right side of the roof where the windshield meets the roof line just to the right of bracket that attaches the visor to the ceiling. windshield2.jpg I noticed it when I saw small drops of water on the door panel and the dashboard. I touched the headliner and it was like...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 11/3/23 - Anti Fatigue Foam Mat

Decided that I wanted something to put on the floor of the van to make it a bit more soft to walk on and to protect it from pedestrian abuse. I had a rug in place but that kept moving around and was a pain to sweep and keep clean. One day while at Harbor Freight I came across this item: Foam_Mat_1.j...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 11/3/23 - Mototote M3

Decided that I wanted to begin bringing my motorcycle on my adventures. If at all possible I wanted to avoid pulling a trailer so I began researching hitch mounted carriers. Seemed to me that most of the available models were flimsy made in China items. The videos that I watched did not inspire conf...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 4/2/23 - Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3

Decided it was time for new tires as the currently installed B.F. Goodrich Commercial TA were over 6 years old and were showing some dry rot on the sidewalls. I had driven on these from Cleveland Ohio to Soda Springs Idaho and back and the rode fine. However, a blow out due to age was ever present o...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 12/17/22 - Hood Vinyl Wrap

This is actually a continuation of this earlier post http://www.roadtrek190.com/viewtopic.php?t=5 The paint on my hood was starting to peel at a rapid pace - to the point where a heavy rain or car wash would cause it to begin peeling off. Actually, what happens is that a "bubble" will form...

2002 Roadtrek 190 Versatile - 9/1/22 - Inline Bed Extension

Here is something I did prior to our recent journey from Cleveland, OH to Soda Springs, ID and back as I was concerned with our sleep situation on the trip. We keep the "bed setup" in place permanently - we do not use the rear dinette setup. As most of us know, the Roadtrek Versatile sleep...
