Hi, wife(retired teachet) and I(retired Fed) toured with MB cruiser for 6 years(75,000 mi) then crossed over to the dark side with a LTV Serenity. Just sold the Serenity, flying to Willoughby, Ohio to view and discuss building an Advanced RV unit. Currently splitting time between home in southern Oregon and apartment in Seattle( Mariner season tickets).

Hello all,
We are about ready to get into Roadtrek ownership. Hopefully.
Looking to carry a motorcycle on the rear if the Merc will do it.
Thats the deal maker or breaker.
Hope to learn some here.
Thank you.

Haha! we have a small dog and have been a little worried about traveling with him - you give me courage with your Travato and mountain dog. We looked at the View & Travato - interested in hearing how the change is going for you. My dad lives in Halifax - so we'll be wending our way to Nova Scotia soon too.

Regards Jennie

Does your Travato have those Euro plastic appearing mattress springs underneath? I noticed this when watching Fit RV video on the Travato

- now that I've gone back to it - its the "Froli Star Mobil"



If you - or anyone! - has used that system - I believe the newer Travatos seem to have them - I'm interested in how they feel and how they stand up over time.
Supposedly they act as springs and also allow air passage in the typically moist environment of the RV?

Thanks

Default Hello

My wife and I just retired last year (she - interior designer; me- landscape architect). We have a '99 VW Eurovan Camper which we bought used in August 2013 with 103k miles, mostly renovated, new auto transmission, etc. We are starting to think about a move up in size to Class B, possibly based on a ProMaster build (Travato, Zion, Lexor or similar). Joined this forum to listen, ask questions, contribute. Planning on going to Hershey RV show in September for more research.

Thanks for reminding me - I've never been to an RV show - they say that on the final day you get the deals. (I took landscape architecture @ Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in the 70's - then changed to fine art) Great place to get ideas

Does your Travato mattress have the plastic springs - Froli springs - underneath?
