Sleeps 6? What the heck are you referencing? The Travato 59K plan is a two person maximum van all the way around. We talking about the same van? The video shows not only the Travato but a lot of other Winnebago RVs. The Travato is only shown in the beginning.

Default Winnebago Travato 59K

Wow, there is a lot to like in this vid.

I really dig the flip down sink. He did'nt really show it, but there looks to be big storage wardrobe and drawers in the bath, along with large medicine cabinet. Also note what appears to be a wet storage area down low on pass. side.

Storage in the floor up front looks cool, depending on how deep it is,

Flip tables and pull out looks useful. Would like to see the sink , as he said strainers were integrated (I guess like Euro vans)

He said 12v/110 fridge. Wonder if the put in additional batteries?

the novakool fridge uses only 4-5 dc amps per hour depending on temperature

Looks like a large storage cabinet or wardrobe and/or drawers in the rear.







Overcab storage looks useful.





Bathroom

Definitely a no compromise 2 person Class B. As you all know, I like that as I just could not understand why one would want to sacrifice space in a B for maybe a 5% use of carrying a third or more persons. And yes, we have done that on a couple of thousand mile trips.



You could probably take "comfortable" extended trips with the 59K plan. Being a light sleeper now, I doubt I could ever get comfortable with my wife in that 46" wide bed 59G plan.

As I surmised the end of the bed is just a head prop mattress for the neck up. Probably a manual lift ratchet. Electric actuators would raise the cost dramatically for so little benefit. The bed in the video looks long enough. The width is pretty good. Roadtrek should take note of these beds for their Promaster. Since they don't intend to seem to make them for sofa sitting I don't quite understand why they didn't raise them higher and get some massive storage underneath.

The flip down sink reminds me of my US Navy days. That's what they put in ships, especially submarines where space was at a premium.

Here's a better image taken by TXwallywinnebago of all the storage in the rear:

The more I study this one, the more I like it. As far as the layout goes that is.

Curious as to how much storage is under those beds. Think you'll use at least one of those overheads above the beds for your pantry area. The kitchen overheads and cabinet drawers look adequate for all your dish/utensil/pot storage.

At least we discovered all your clothes can go in those bathroom cabinets. That's really nice.

Big questions remain - tank sizes, battery count and if the tanks are gravity floor, or you have the pumpouts like on the 59G.

Even though I have abandoned my notion that I needed a "dry bath" with stand-alone shower, this implementation of the "wet bath" leaves me uncomfortable. Seems like too much "risk" to too many stored items so close to running, splashing water. The Coach House Arriva does something similar, but they manage to segregate the shower from the storage.
