Minnesota Vikings Foundation “Vikings Table” Food Truck Built by Winnebago Industries

This summer children experiencing food insecurity in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region could access a meal from a new food truck supported by The Minnesota Vikings Foundation in partnership with Xcel Energy. Built by the Specialty Vehicles Division of Winnebago Industries  in collaboration with local food truck operators Tony and Haley Fritz, the new community outreach vehicle is dubbed “Vikings Table.” Its aim is to help tackle hunger, while engaging children and families with the Vikings NFL sports team up close and around home nutrition education. This is the first commercial kitchen produced using the Winnebago commercial shell vehicle platform.

This summer children experiencing food insecurity in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region could access a meal from a new food truck supported by The Minnesota Vikings Foundation in partnership with Xcel Energy and Winnebago Industries.

“Vikings Table is a new and important program of the Vikings Foundation’s greater mission, which has always been to advance the well-being of youth through engaging health and education initiatives,” said Vikings Executive Director of Social Impact Brett Taber. “Approximately 250,000 children in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area are missing meals during the summer months. We’re excited to partner with other non-profit organizations and leverage the power of the Vikings brand to bring people together in the fight against hunger.”

While the food truck is serving lunch, children can also visit an indoor section of the vehicle, designed by the Minneapolisexperiential marketing agency STAR. In the experiential room, families can learn more about the Vikings, and its foundation through graphics and videos. The space will also provide nutritional education for families to implement at home.

Built on a Winnebago Commercial Vehicle Platform, the 38 foot Vikings Food Truck features a Freightliner MC chassis, which weighs less than 26,000 lbs and can be driven without a commercial driver’s license. The commercial kitchen is designed to hold as many as 10 food preparation professionals when parked. The kitchen features all NSF certified appliances and work surfaces, as well as meets all Minnesota state and Minneapolis municipal codes for a commercial kitchen.

“A great amount of human centered design and engineering went into proper weight distribution and serving ergonomics to get this commercial kitchen up and going,” said Ashis N. Bhattacharya Vice President, Strategic Planning and Development at Winnebago. “We are excited to see the possibilities of this vehicle, with or without the commercial kitchen, as it could help partners address food insecurity for families across the country.”

What Exactly is the “Crucial Engine Break-in Period”

A major advantage to buying your new Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV – the #1 Winnebago Dealer in North America is our proximity to Winnebago’s Motorhome Division in Forest City, Iowa. Our dealership is located 1 mile from Winnebago Industries, so if you buy a Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV you don’t have to worry about whether a delivery driver ate, drank, or lived in your brand-new RV before you could.

A dealer that is more geographically proximate to you might not tell you about how crucial the first 1,000 miles is for engine break-in because your Winnebago could arrive with 1,000 miles or more on it before you even step foot inside the coach. Winnebago and the chassis manufacturers have recommendations for breaking in the engine. When you purchase from Lichtsinn RV you can control the critical break-in period and not leave it up to a delivery driver towing their personal vehicle across the country.

The manufacturers recommend –

  1. No towing for the first 1,000 miles
  2. No full throttle starts for the first 1,000 miles
  3. Use varying speeds every couple hours to seat the cylinders in the new engine

When you purchase a Winnebago from a geographically proximate dealer, the Winnebago was driven, by a transport company, from the motorhome factory in Forest City, Iowa (where Lichtsinn RV is Located) to the dealer. While your RV is in transport, the driver will often tow a personal vehicle behind it – violating the manufacturers’ first recommendation for engine break-in protocol. As for the other two – no full-throttle starts and using varying speeds – you can not be certain that good or safe driving techniques were employed during the transportation process.

At Lichtsinn RV, you will not have to worry about how your engine will be broken in because you will be the one doing it!

Hey Mercedes! Reviewing the Mercedes-Benz MBUX System in the VS30 Chassis

Debuted in 2018, Mercedes-Benz’ MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) is a revolutionary infotainment and multimedia system in both the automotive and recreational vehicle industries.

The MBUX system is both an infotainment and multi-media system that can be activated by voice controls. Similar to Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri, the MBUX system is activated by a driver stating, in natural language, “Hey Mercedes.” The MBUX system is powered through artificial intelligence, so it is able to learn about the users driving preferences and create a better, more tailored experience for the driver. MBUX will learn your preferences and present them to you through a suggestions panel

IMG_9763

In addition to voice command, the MBUX system is accessed through the 10″ widescreeen touch screen in the cockpit that offering built in navigation, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Users can control the MBUX infotainment center through the new touch screen buttons located on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. The cockpit also offers wireless charging for cell phones and devices.

IMG_9760

The MBUX system provides  notifications to drivers from the VS30’s enhanced safety features including –

Active Brake Assist senses the likelihood of a collision with a vehicle ahead and sends both a visual and audible warning followed by initiating autonomous braking, and an industry exclusive to include pedestrian active braking.

The new active distance distronic is an intelligent cruise control system that senses traffic conditions and actively controls your speed to keep you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

The new active lane keep assist will provide you with visual and audible warnings if your van leaves its lane unintentionally.

Blind spot assist including Rear Cross Traffic Alert – employs automatic braking to avoid a collision with traffic crossing the vehicle’s path including traffic passing while the van is backing up.

Crosswind Assist detects strong gusts of crosswind and helps the driver to stay on course. At speeds over 50 mph it corrects the vehicle’s course by means of automatic braking intervention on the wheels on the side of the vehicle facing the wind.

When TechCrunch, a technology-focused publication, reviewed the MBUX system they said, “In the end, MBUX is that rarest of beasts: A first-party infotainment system that’s exciting, powerful and extremely well-crafted from a technology perspective.”

Winnebago Built: Azdel Composite Fiberglass

Winnebago uses Azdel Composite Panels in its fiberglass manufacturing, an environmentally friendly and lightweight composite panel, in the construction of the sidewalls in Class A Gas, Class A Diesel and Class C motorhomes.

WATCH OUR VIDEO ON AZDEL COMPOSITE FIBERGLASS HERE

Azdel Composite Panels have been used in RV exterior and interior sidewall, ceilings, and roofs since 2006. The panels are manufactured using a cutting-edge, patented blend of polypropylene and fiberglass to create a strong, lightweight, quiet, weather and temperature resistant, odorless and environmentally friendly wall that will increase the life of your RV.Azdel Onboard Cutaway

With twice the insulation value, excellent strength and half the weight of wood, Azdel composite panels increase the durability and lighten the weight of your motorhome. Azdel’s reduced weight keeps fuel costs down while its superior insulation decreases heating and cooling costs as well as absorbs road and outside sound to provide a quieter ride.

Azdel compared its water resistance to luan, the underlayment plywood used in competitor RVs, and found that luan displayed mold and the beginning of delamination after 51 days of water exposure and the Azdel panel was 100% unaffected. Some RVs sit through six months of winter, subjected to freezing, thawing, heating and repeating the cycle with the potential for water seeping into the wall. This damage occurred in less than two months.

 

 

Azdel Onboard versus Lauan

How does delamination affect your RV? Have you ever seen an RV with bubbling along the sidewalls that looks like an air bubble under contact paper? That’s delamination – the wood is separating from the outer layer and can no longer support the structure. Water seeping in has soaked the wood. This along with freezing, thawing and hot temperatures causes it to decompose and loosen adhesive bonds. Because of the moisture/water presence, mold and mildew are formed or accelerated during this process. What you don’t see can make all the difference – in the support structure of your walls, road noise, and comfort level inside your rig, the air quality your family breathes, and the longevity of your RV.
