Ah yes - I don't care for the white interior either. I just wasn't sure which part you found ugly

Just to give equal time. I love white interiors and am tired of cherry. I've had both in RVs. Of course, I've never seen the Zion in person... yet...

Here is what I got from Roadtrek to my reply about the Zion twin beds: "That is because there are no true twin beds on the Zion. (Although you could sleep on the sofa separate from the bench seating on the other side.

The sofa powers down to create the bed area in the rear, so that is why there is only one measurement for the entire bed area in the rear. Keeping the sofa up, however, would create two bed areas that would be approximately 22” wide and 76” long.".

I'm only going by what I was told. I'm hoping to actually see one on Saturday - I'll take a tape measure...

A 22" bed should work OK. It's a bit narrower than typical twin beds in a Class B but it would be basically the same as sleeping on a sofa at home.

Re: white interior - I thought it looked pretty good in the the Zion I saw. I think it looks better in person than in photos.

B arbara-what you say is true to a degree-the fixed bed side is actually not fixed. it can be pulled out 6 inches- you can then ues this as arm space or put one of the 2 bolsters in the slot against the wall. the couch is the same principal-as it reclines you get more and more arm space-you do not have to totally flatten it. I tried it

what your describing is not adjusting them in any way-just leaving them as is-they are not made to work that way

Thanks Gerry. I think I can almost visualize it, Gerry. Hopefully I'll be able to see it on Saturday and even take pictures...

Now if here was some way to remove the one bed that would be cool. Just reinstall it when/if you have another passenger. It's only me an a dog also.

You don't need a smartphone. Any digital camera nowadays will shoot in mp4 or mov format. You just upload the file to youtube thru your web browser.

To clarify my earlier statement re: the 59G. The salesman asked me if I would buy it for $45K but I definitely did not see it in writing. I said "no" because I was annoyed that he had made me drive 50 miles each way to see a model he didn't have. That made me not want to engage with him at all. The model he did have did not meet my needs and I already knew it. Maybe I should have taken it further to see if he would have put it in writing? Oh well...

Thanks for the link. I'm liking the Zion more every time I look at it. Have not seen one in person though. It seems to be a great combination of vehicle outline dimensions, interior floor plan, and cost.
