CT Coachworks LLC, Riverside, Calif., has engineered an aluminum, railed rooftop deck with a 19-foot-long awning for its 35-foot Sienna gas-powered motorhome that is particularly suited to auto racing and other such venues. “I’m looking for people who want to go to outdoor events and get a better view,” said Steve Thomas, CT Coachworks president. “I wanted to make it where it was simple to use. One person can set it up in less than two minutes.” Thomas said the roof is strong enough to hold his Porsche sportscar and CT Coachworks’ 30 employees. Three hinges on each side are welded to the motorhome so that the patio folds onto the top of the coach when not in use. “Everything stays on top of the roof so you don’t have to carry anything up there,” Thomas said. A 35-pound ladder that stores beneath a slideout provides access to the rooftop which is equipped with coaxial cable, water and a 110-volt electrical outlet for accessories. The rooftop patio is a $3,200 option that can be added to the $128,000 base price of the 35-foot Sienna built on 22,000-pound GVWR Workhorse W-22 chassis equipped with a 345-hp Vortec gasoline engine.
