Answering my own question

Clearly the best simulator for the turtlebot is the turtlebot simulator in gazebo as pointed out by Melonee, however a very simple Stage implementation in ROS Electric can be found here -

Hi, I've been using Stage for over a year... I think it won't be a turtlebot model for stage, the main reason is the turtlebot's Kinect wich has no equivalent sensor in Stage.

In Stage you can find a Roomba+LaserScanner model to progam and play with very didactic, and good to play with navigation, tracking and other stuff. Stage Tutorials

If you look for a Robot+[RGB+d camera] simulation, like turtlebot, this should be done in Gazebo wich is really capable of such tasks.

I apologize I cannot suggest a specific turtlebot model in Gazebo, my knowledge is not deep enough.I just try to give a little help, good luck! :)

There currently is a full TurtleBot simulator in gazebo that uses the URDF model provided in the turtlebot stack. For more information check out the turtlebot_simulator wiki page:

@mwise_wg : thanks, marcobecerrap has given me the answer I was looking for - the reason for no stage model for turtlebot
