This Class B motorhome really raises the roof . . . literally.
There are plus sides to being really tall. It’s easier to find your car in parking lots, or spot friends in a crowd. Your view at the movie theatre is never blocked, and if you have some athletic ability, a career in basketball is a distinct possibility. There are disadvantages too – finding clothes that fit can be a real chore, and folding yourself into a suave two-seater sports car can be all but impossible. Camping isn’t out of the question though, thanks to Regency RV’s newest model line called National Traveler.
It’s based on the company’s existing line of Ram (aka Fiat Ducato in Europe) raised-roof camper vans, but this one is taller than most. Specifically, it has a ceiling height of over two metres which is unheard of in a smaller Class B motorhome. The space isn’t there simply for pro basketball players seeking a getaway, however – the National Traveler is tall enough to incorporate a Euro-Loft bunk for extra sleeping accommodations. Four adults can sack out in the camper, and even with the top bunk in position, there’s still over six feet of clearance underneath it at the back.

"As we developed the raised roof this was always a directive," said Don Emahiser, national sales manager for Regency RV. "Sleeping more than two in a van is an impossible challenge. With the Euro-loft, we double our space and sleeping capacity. It’s game changing. With the touch of a button, the bunk lowers down from a clean, upholstered ceiling to reveal a queen size bunk bed that can sleep two additional family members."
The taller roof also means the National Traveler feels roomier inside. The front seats can swivel rearward to creates a second sitting area, with the primary sitting/dining area located at the rear beneath the bunk. A stove, sink, and refrigerator are obviously part of the package, and the tall roof provides another advantage – the shower boasts a seven-foot ceiling as well.
Regency says the National Traveler floorplan will be called Explore, and it will hit American dealers in June with a retail price in the $120,000 range, or approximately £92,000 at the current exchange rate.
REGENCY RV DEBUTS NATIONAL TRAVELER EURO-LOFT FLOORPLAN THAT SLEEPS FOUR
Fort Worth, Texas—Regency RV, manufacturer of the National Traveler Class B motorhomes, is debuting a unique Euro-Loft bunk sleeping system to its line of raised roof RAM motorhomes. The new National Traveler floorplan will be known as the Explore and is designed to accommodate sleeping for a family of four.
The Regency RV National Traveler brand is the only Class B motorhome with a raised roof built on the RAM ProMaster chassis that provides seven-feet, four inches of interior height and doubles overhead storage capacities in the interior.
Don Emahiser, national sales manager for Regency RV, explained how this interior space above resulted in building one of the few Class B coaches that comfortably sleeps a family of four.
“As we developed the raised roof this was always a directive,” he said. “Sleeping more than two in a van is an impossible challenge. With the Euro-loft, we double our space and sleeping capacity. It’s game changing. With the touch of a button, the bunk lowers down from a clean, upholstered ceiling to reveal a queen size bunk bed that can sleep two additional family members.”
Even with the Euro-Loft system in the up position, there is still six-feet, three inches of ceiling height in the rear dinette area of the coach reported Emahiser.
“Yes, the National Traveler is designed for all travelers, but it also provides a more open, comfortable feel for traveling families,” he said. “Our new Explore floorplan with the raised roof also features seven feet of headroom in the shower.”
The new Explore Euro-Loft floorplan will be available to dealers this June with an MSRP in the $120,000 price range.
