Default Happy Travato Owners

Funny thing happened yesterday.

My wife and I have been looking at getting a Class B for some time. We plan to use it mostly for short camping trips (weekenders), mostly boondocking since there is so much free camping here out West.

Last week we went to our local RV super store and checked out every make and model they had, finally settling on a new 2018 Travato 59K. The main points in favor of the Travato for us were the floor plan (twin beds, rear bath) and the build quality. We picked out the unit we wanted and put down the deposit.

Yesterday we went back for another test drive and to sign the paperwork. On the way back into the showroom, we saw that they had a 2019 Travato set up so we stopped to take a look. Why not? Within one minute, we both turned to each other and gave the "This is the one!" look. The 2019 was so much improved from the 2018 that we switched on the spot. What made us switch?
  • Leather seats
  • Cassette style window shades (including the galley shade)
  • Factory bike rack
  • 200w solar vs 100 on the older one
  • Two extra porthole windows
  • Seemed bigger and more open overall
  • Better fabric on the beds
  • Price difference was less than 5K.

It may be just our perception, but the whole unit just seemed better quality. Talk to me in six months, but I'm very happy we saw the 2019 and made the switch. We considered waiting for the 59KL with the Li battery setup, but decided against it. We are not early adopters, especially since this is our first RV and the dealer didn't know anything about it anyway.

We'll take delivery in a couple of weeks.
