Default Re: Stoked for incoming Travois Expedition

I purchased a VW through Travois. I've been through their shop.

Any updates on this?

Today marks 30 days since "our" Sprinter arrived at Travois. We are still waiting for the actual contract so no build schedule yet. Just recalling it was March when we first made contact with Travois and April when I signed-off on their quote. A few deadlines have slipped since then, perhaps an indication of how busy they are and how difficult it is obtaining Sprinters from the factory. Still hopeful for delivery in 2018, but a bit apprehensive about the 3500 km drive back home in the middle of winter!

Try to picture this Travois Conestoga in Pebble Grey. Other than the color, ours will also have roof-top LED lights front and back. The nice thing about purchasing the base 2018 4x4 from Travois' partner dealership (Cornwall Freightliner) is that we were able to obtain a low M-B financing rate and 5 year prepaid maintenance package.

Now anticipating a February completion date and there have been a few modifications to the original spec since I first posted. The Travois Conestoga Expedition conversion still includes the full protection package with sill bars, front skid plate with brush bar and driving lights, transfer case cradle, winch, snorkel, trailer hitch, 265/75-16 all-terrain tires on custom wheels with fender flares.

Otherwise, there has been a switch to Dometic accessories including an electric awning, stainless fridge, sink, water heater, and 2-burner induction stove accompanied by an upgraded 3000W inverter. The onboard water tanks have been increased to 140 litres. In addition to their custom aluminum cabinets, Travois has designed their own floor system with L-track to accommodate an adjustable/removable seat-bed.
