Battle of the B’s: Lithium Powered Travato vs. Boldt

This month we are going to focus on Winnebago Class B Camper Vans, the Battle of the B’s! The Class B Camper Van market continues to grow and offers a number of different options for those looking to go where they want, when they want, in an RV.  Class B motorhomes are compact and smaller in stature compared to traditional Class A and Class C Motorhomes. Class B’s are also larger and taller than a typical full-sized van allowing space within the Class B RV for living, sleeping and a wet bath. Winnebago offers a number of different Class B van options with available different power sources. We will compare the Winnebago Travato Class B Van powered with Lithium to the Winnebago Boldt with Lithium below.
