New Itasca Viva

We down sized from our Class A Bounder to a 24' Viva 23B.
What a fun rig to drive and travel in.
No toad (only rated for 2000#). Makes fueling a breeze.
We are on a road trip and have racked up 2500 miles with no problems. Fuel MPG is averaging between 14-15.
We had to give up some storage but got rid of not needed or used stuff.
Looking forward to hearing from some new Viva/Trend owners.

My sister-in-law is looking at these. I'll let her know you like yours. Nice looking. I'm not sure if we could downsize that much for our needs. Glad it's working for you.

Nice looking setup,
Do you have any issues not having a dedicated bedroom????
My wife wants a bedroom, while I have no issue with not having one.

Test drove one and what a great ride - drives almost car-like being smoother and quieter than most C's. Also very efficient use of space.

For us, no issue. More room in the galley and seating area.

looks nimble for sure!
so - I count 6 seat belts in the layout you attached - does that mean you can actually sleep 6 in it?

I guess that would depend on how comfortable you would be with your sleeping companions. I would say two adults and two children. You could probably stack more children like cord wood in the loft bed, 300# cap though.

We bought a 2015 Viva 23B and love it. Have camped a couple of times and everything worked out fine. As for using a TOAD, the only new car that's light enough is the Smart Car (1808#). We just bought a 2013 SC and driving it is like riding in a big go-cart with A/C. If anyone is considering this TOAD, the 2015 model may be the last one you can tow 4-down. Have been told by a dealer that the 2016 (which IMHO is better looking) will have a full automatic and cannot be towed that way. A Blue-Ox base plate has been ordered and I will post the experience.
