If you wait until something better or improved comes out, you'll always be waiting and never buy.
There is constant improvement in all models, as most manufacturers make running changes throughout the model year.
The only thing I know for sure is that there are some additional color choices available for 2016. The 59K is slowly being rolled out and there most likely will be tweaks to this model as time goes on.
Just sent you a PM.
I believe now if you order a new van from the factory it will be a 2016 model. Someone said there are additional colors, but haven't said there were any new features.
Top of my list for things I'd like to see is the Truma system and a second battery. Think both of those are do-able.
Any update on any pending changes on the 2016 model yet? I understand that the 2016 59G model is already on the market but I guess it is an early version of the 2016 model at this time, most of the features are probably still similar to those of the 2015 one. I am seriously considering downsizing from my current TT/TV combo to a class B and the Travato 59G is one of my top choices. Any reason you would advise me to hold off a bit and see if any significant updates such as the Truma system will be implemented? Thanks!
Excellent video with a lot of information that is very helpful to me, a perspective buyer of the 59G.
Just a couple follow-up questions.
(1) Battery and Generator Position - How serious should one be concerned with the low clearance of the battery and generator, including the potential of getting them damaged? Furthermore, how difficulty would it be for doing some routine maintenance work on them yourself, particularly with the battery? A specific question that I have about the battery is whether it is easy to connect a trickle charge cable to the battery terminals during winter storage time without removing the battery. Also, how difficult it is to remove the battery in case you really have to without using a high bay?
(2) The Need for Pumping out the Grey Tank - This is something that's not normally required by most other RVs and an additional piece of part to worry about. Do you think that this will stay with the 59G for a long time due to its particular floor plan or whether it likely that WB might eliminate this problem on the 2016 model of the 59G?
(3) Any words on when the 2016 59G will become available? What some of the things that you would like to see improved on the third year model, such as switching to the new hot water heating system as that of the 59K?
Thanks again for your great postings relating to the Winnebago Travato 59G and 59K.
Timely indeed. The cub is on sale for around 1500. I have a 21 rbs, less than 4k lbs but sway has been an issue on the last west coast venture. I dont think pro pride has a new model for that price.
The Cub unit no question is cheaper. On the other hand, please be careful that its tongue weight limit, as I understand, is 600#. For myself, I would only purchase a Cub if: (1) I am very sure that the LOADED tongue weight of my TT, (not the dry tongue weight) after adding propane, batteries, etc., is indeed under 600#, and, (2) I will not be upgrading to a bigger TT down the road. If the answer to either (1) or (2) is no, I would definitely go for a 3P.
I have the ProPride and love it,Would I buy one again, In a heart beat
X2 from another very satisfied 3P owner. I also wanted to add that the help and advice that I have been getting from Sean on all my technical questions, even 6 years after I bought the 3P from him, has been unparalleled. This kind of dedication to customers is such a rarity nowadays.
