Default Getting Ready to Pull the Trigger

On a 2022 Winnebago Travato, KL. We have a 2017.5 Travato. I will have to wait until May before it comes in and then drive to Iowa. Darn! Wish I had a crystal ball that worked!

Congrats!

Clearly you must have been pleased with Travato to order another one. Was the Volta lithium system to run air conditioning your key driver for ordering a new one?

Yes, we really like our Travato. The major reasons for the new one are the 4 season capabilities and the Pure3 Advanced Energy System with 12800 watt-hours of power. We can run the AC for the dog if we are away without a darn generator. My wife doesn't like the smaller windows (she still misses the Eurovan!) but she doesn't get involved in winterization like I do.

Sorry, I don't understand the question.

Sounds a lot like the Coachman Beyond I ordered and will be here in March. The Ford Transit chassis is what sold me. The Ford Sync3 system and all the drivers safety features tipped the scale.

Looks real nice! And the perfect length. I have found many places that 22' is the max allowed. Have fun!

Agree, my last one was a Sprinter chassis at slightly over 24í.
Canít wait. Have a lot of places on my bucket list to see before my rocking chair days begin.
