My issue is that i found a vortex in good price, but i dont read so many words about power tranfer, but i can use vortex only for road/grade feedback with my bikes powermeter for power transfer...

I'm really happy with my Tacx Vortex:

Since you have a power meter I'd just find a cheap/used normal turbo trainer and do it that way, especially for only 2 months per year.

+2. If you already have a power meter, get a kurt kinetic road machine.
It's ALL about the bike.
