Louise and I have worked seasonally in Yellowstone National Park for a combined 56 summers and we love to share our love for the park with others.
After tent camping for years, we decided to purchase our Roadtrek two years ago. We love the freedom it gives us to head out for adventure regardless of the weather and we have already enjoyed some glorious trips in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. We use the inverter to brew coffee and toast bagels in the morning. In the evening, we either cook on the propane stove in inclement weather or run an extension cord outside where we can barbecue with the electric grill. Given the propane furnace, we can even winter camp and bring the cross country skis along. We researched campers and class B RV's for nearly a year before deciding on the Roadtrek 190 Popular. It drives well and the smaller frame handles more like a regular car than a big RV. At the same time, the robust 6 liter engine gives it a lot of power for the mountain roads.
Travel and explore Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in the comfort of this 2015 Roadtrek 190 Popular Class B RV. With a 6 liter V8 engine, the 3500 Chevy Express Chassis provides all the power you'll need to safely navigate the mountain roads without the hassle of driving a large and cumbersome RV. The extra coach batteries, 2500 watt inverter, and underhood generator will provide the amenities of the expensive park hotels while allowing you to stay in the beautiful campgrounds. No need to plug in to shore power! With over 50 combined summers working and living in Yellowstone, Louise and I know both national parks and surrounding areas very well. We will gladly help you map out a trip which provides a thorough and comprehensive experience centered around the types of activities that most interest you. Convenient pick up and drop off at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Bozeman, Montana, less than 80 miles from the entrance to YNP!

Great time Mark was great to work with went out of his way for us . The only comment would be to work on some of the cabinet latches
The campervan was perfect for our family of 3, including a 7 year old. It was easy to handle and we could quickly setup at campgrounds (only 4 steps really: turn on propane tank, switch gas inverter on, switch fridge power to gas source, turn super fantastic roof fan on if hot outside) and reverse these 4 steps when leaving. The hot outdoor shower option was great for washing dirty feet and hair after hikes. Indoor gas cooking was a breeze. And the dvd tv surround sound setup was entertaining (took a while to figure out that the middle button at the power receptacle needed to be depressed - Mark, you may want to add a page to your comprehensive instructional binder). Before this, I had no experience with RVs and I was very impressed with the ease of use, handling and fuel economy of this rig. Overall, a great rig for a couple or mini family.
Renting Mark's 190 Popular was a dream. Incredibly friendly guy who will walk some amateurs through how everything works and then drop them off at the airport when the trip is over. Van was super clean, ran great and had everything we could have needed in it. Highly recommended!
The experience renting from mark was great. We couldn’t have asked for a better campervan or owner to rent from. Mark was amazing with communication prior to renting and gave us a ton of information on Yellowstone. I have a 2 year old so did not have time to research like I normally would for a trip so it was very helpful. We pretty much did almost all of what he recommended and it was perfect. We also had 2 nights in Bozeman prior to renting and he gave us some hikes there to check out as well and it worked out great.
Before we took off in the van mark gave a tour and a great informative session on everything in the van. He made sure we were comfortable and everything was answered before we left. There is also a binder that is easy to read and you can find any information you may need on the van. The notes around the van are super helpful as well and we were glad they were there.
As for the van itself it was awesome! If it’s available you should rent it, you won’t be disappointed. There were 3 of us, My partner and I and our 2 year old son and it worked out great. I didn’t feel cramped for space at any point. Our son still asks for the campervan. I loved the layout of it and the shower and toilet worked great. We left the bed down the whole time which worked out great. It was comfortable and the down blanket was warm and cozy. With all the curtains pulled it was dark enough to sleep past when the sun came up. We had great weather so we were outdoors a lot. I’m sure it would feel smaller with a toddler if we were unable to play outside a bunch. It was such a great van I would totally think of getting one myself one day! We loved it! The experience was great and if I ever go back I would rent from Mark again. Thanks Mark. Also, Mark went above and beyond by helping us on our way out of town so that was greatly appreciated as well.
