Twin Bed Models

Which class Bs have a model that allows you to sleep North/South (length ways rather than across)? Twin beds would be fine.

Roadtrek Zion

The Roadtrek Zion has a great floor plan with twin bed set-up. Lots of storage under the beds. Using the beds as couches during the day provides a big space to live. A table for the front seats makes a good area to eat or work. The Zion is built on a Dodge Promaster chassis, powered by a V6 coupled with a 6 speed transmission.

Road Trek 190 or 210 Popular models on the Chevy chassis have twin beds or, if equipped with the electric couch, can be made into a queen/king with fillers.

Technically a king, not double. Trust me because during our first trip my wife said "Well, these queen sheets from the old RV aren't working, I need to buy kings"! And she did.

I had a 2017 Winnebago ERA 70a (which had the rear twin bed also convertible to larger bed). I like the twin setup - easily to climb out of than when full.

I hated my bathroom setup in the WB 70a. Also at almost 24’ it was still pretty big when parking (sticks out in most spots in parking lots). So I wanted shorter van and larger bath (at least where you stand in shower), 70a very narrow.

So recently took the hit and traded in on a 2019 Travato 59k.

I am much happier with the use of space. The rear bath (still a wet bath) but has a lot more room in it for shower. I like the twin beds better (btw they can still be made into one large bed - but I never do that since I pref the ease of use getting in or out of the single.)
And I like the open floor plan & lots of windows in the Travato. The ERA was kinda narrow inside like in a submarine. It’s a matter of preference. Quality wise on the cabinets and build is same - both by Winnebago. Both have 200w solar packages.
The fridge is smaller than the ERA but I haven’t missed it. And I actually prefer the compressor type how it is always the exact same temperature. My ammonia 3 way would swing some depends on outside temps.
My Travato is just shy of 21’ which I find has made it much easier on fitting in parking spaces.
My only regret is the promaster gas 3.7 doesn’t have as good of torque as my diesel sprinter had (it down shifts a lot on hills where the sprinter would just power through). Fuel economy is also slightly less. Being honest with my drive style, I got an overall average mpg of 16/17 in my sprinter and now same speeds and style I get 14/15 with Travato.
I’m curious about the promaster diesel and how it performs.
Regarding the generator. I much prefer the gas one in my Travato over the propane one in the ERA.
I like the convenience of just filling the van gas tank to fuel the generator, not worry about finding a propane fueling station. Also I think the gas one is slightly more fuel efficient.

Although 2 years older The value of my ERA was probably about the same as the Travato. The whole transaction cost me just over $6k to swap.
And longevity wise, I suspect the ERA will hold value higher and longer than the Travato.
Was it a smart move? Value wise maybe not so much.
But I was not happy with the ERA so comfort wise the answer is yes.
I am a much happier camper now!
In the end, my happiness trumped the decision.
It was a $6k+ lesson for me (more after taxes and new registration costs). But what is the price of happiness? I’m old and you can’t take it with you when! LOL

Sorry for the long story - I know this thread started out asking about twin beds. And that was an important consideration in my choices. I really like the Travato 59k layout. (I considered the leisure travel Wonder with front beds also).
So to answer the direct question - yes there are twin bed options out there.
In any case this is not my first venture in RV’s I have had 3 different travel trailers 1 being a 5th wheel toy hauler, I just thought I would share my opinion on these.

I don't know if you're interested in B+ models, but Pleasureway has a 'wide body' B+ with twins.
