Interesting stuff. Depending on how comfortable the front beds make up to be, it might work better as a front sleeper with nice rear storage area. Nice to have big items inside at night.

I like the comment about the laminate countertop for you food prep area. There doesn't look like there is enough area to prep anything as the stove and sink use up the entire space, like so many B's are doing now.

One minor thing is that Winnebago could have added a fold-up counter extension for a square foot or so of additional counter space. Doesn't sound like much, but that would at least hold a cutting board or some other stuff while food is being prepped. Since the 120VAC receptacle and switches are located there, it can't really be retrofitted.

It looks easy enough move those switches and outlet and cover with blank plates as a retrofit. I installed one of the flip-up counter extensions in a B+ unit I had. Very handy. My guess is some of this feed back will eventually filter back to the designers at Winnebago so hopefully ideas like this will make it to the production line.

I took 18 photos of the Winnebago Travato at the Minneapolis RV show. They are in my Flickr account. It is not a Class B I would ever consider but here it is for anyone curious.

I wonder where they got that monthly payment number. I'm guessing a 20% down?

I saw a Winnebago View 24V at an RV show last week and noticed how they did the counter extension.



You'd still have to move two switch panels in the Travato if you installed a similar extension but at least you wouldn't have to move the 120v AC outlet.
