Looking forward to this comparison as well. The 59g worked out well for me, esp with the 2 dogs, but there is a lot more storage in the K. What size scooter do you have? Thinking about how convenient it would be to leave the Travato parked and scoot into town or whatever. Also looking to see how the 2 80w solar panels are mounted to roof.
I've heard one report that they ran heat a couple of days and barely used a 1/4 tank. So I look forward to reporting on the Truma.
The scooter is fairly small (it's electric - LifeP04 battery, good for 40-50miles). Weighs 125 lbs, so not too tough to put on the rack I have for it. It's really nice to run around town on. This AM I rode it into Surfside, about 10 miles away (and then back). Nice you can park most places on the sidewalk.
I am still mulling upgrading the batteries to Lithium. I had a disappointing exchange with Smart Battery. They were only willing to offer me a $150 discount on another battery, even thought they've been linking to my blog all this time as a way to sell batteries. I've updated my posting, so I assume that link will be removed soon.
SC has no laws about concealing your scooter. It can sit out naked for all to see, and it's not a problem. People may gossip about your brashness though.
I just strap it down with ratcheting straps and a couple bungees. The scooter has a locking steering column and key ignition. The battery also is under a locked panel and it could also be removed and stored in the van. The battery is the costly part - it alone is $600-700.
It had 17.4 mpg on the clock and gospel on the radio. So I can only assume it had a smooth ride down from Forest City. Also tells me it's likely that they did not tow a car behind my new van, or the mpg would be much worse. Encouraging that this mpg is on the display from the get go - my last two vans were not this high on deliver, yet still got great mileage.
Engine seems really peppy and the van feels alot lighter than the G.
Of course you can drive on the BRP. You probably can't get away with staying overnite at the overlooks (I've never tried it). But there is a nice dry campground at Linville Falls, NC that I try to get to at least once a year.
The darker color makes it look more stealth and the upgrades (Truma) result in one less large exterior add-on.
Wonder if you can drive a Class B on the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) easily? hint
Did the BRP on my motorcycle and it was great.
We drove the entire BRP in our C190P Roadtrek (and also the Skyline Drive and Natchez Trace), and it was wonderful. We were on the edge of the summer season so the campgrounds on the parkway were not crowded. We would highly recommend it.
