Winnebago View Supershell Sleeper Deck

Winnebago Vita vs. Winnebago View

The Winnebago View, the Winnebago Navion and the Winnebago Vita are each built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel Chassis. Each are equipped with 200-watt solar panels that come standard with each model and are expandable for additional solar power to help keep their 2 deep-cycle, Group 31 RV batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use.

In addition, the Winnebago View, Winnebago Navion and Winnebago Vita provide extended off-the-grid functionality with best-in-class holding tanks and generator. Go off-the-grid for longer with these models with holding tank capacities of 30-37 gallons of fresh water (dependent on floorplan), and 41 gallons capacity for black and gray tanks. Each is powered with the 3,600-watt Cummins Onan® MicroQuiet LP generator. The Winnebago View and Navion offer an optional 3,200-watt Cummins Onan® Diesel generator.

Each of these models also provide comfortable sleeping for up to 6 people. They feature the Super Shell Sleeper Deck. The superior design of the Super Shell strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks.

But that is where the similarities end. See below the difference between the Winnebago Vita and the Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion.

View-vs.-Vita

WINNEBAGO VITA

Base Price: $125,171

Floorplans – The Winnebago Vita is available in 2 floorplans, the 24F and the 24P. Winnebago has consciously made expansive galleys in the Vita, and even the bathroom door of the 24P gives extra space in the bathroom once closed. One of the main differences between the two floorplans is where the slide is located. In the 24F, the dinette is in the slide and in the 24P, the bed is in the slide.

Galley – The well-planned galley area of the Winnebago Vita includes many of the comforts of home including a double-door 7.3 cu. ft. residential Refrigerator/freezer, a 3-burner range top w/glass cover and a lighted spice rack.

OCCC (Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity) – The new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity.

The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV.

Customizable Storage – The Winnebago Vita features customizable storage including the pantry and linen cabinet. The pantry features removable rods and shelves to customize the space to your needs. This allows you to use it as a food pantry or a closet of clothes, or for whatever fits your needs. The linen cabinet of the 24F provides additional and easily accessible storage for towels or other supplies.

Power  – The Winnebago Vita includes a 1,000-watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter to safely power electronics in your RV.

Having a gas cooktop will allow you to cook your meals while dry camping, and an induction cooktop allows for more energy efficient cooking. Lighted In-Drawer Cabinets.

8 Reasons We Love the Winnebago Vita

10 New Features in the 2020 Winnebago View

Winnebago View vs. Winnebago Navion

Winnebago Motorhome Quality: Four Questions to Ask Before You Buy

Winnebago View vs. Winnebago Navion

Each year at Lichtsinn RV we help hundreds of guests on their path towards RVing in a fuel efficient Mercedes Benz, making us the largest volume dealer for Winnebago Views and Navions in all of North America.

The all new View and Navion have been restyled for 2020 and include the innovative fuel efficient Mercedes Benz VS30 chassis with all new contemporary European styling!  With new upscale details throughout, the View and Navion offer the freedom to live large in a compact coach. Combining freedom with comfort, this vehicle has been completely redesigned inside and out for an unparalleled Class C experience.

Which brings us to one of the most common questions we receive regarding these full featured Class C Diesel RVs. What is the difference between the Winnebago View and the Winnebago Navion. The answer quite simply is: The name.

Winnebago View vs. Navion

The only difference in these two models is literally the name. The Navion is a legacy name from when Winnebago Brands included the Itasca line of RVs. At that time Winnebago offered the Winnebago View and the Itasca Navion. Even at that time, there were very few differences between the Winnebago View and Itasca Navion. (Depending on the model year the differences were more extensive. However, towards the end of life of the Itasca Brand they were very similar.) The reason for both brands to exist was simply that some dealers were authorized to sell the Navion and some the View. Lichtsinn RV was one of the few Winnebago dealerships who was authorized to sell both.

Since Winnebago Industries discontinued the Itasca Brand they moved select legacy Itasca models to the Winnebago Brand, the result is the Winnebago Navion. The Winnebago View and the Winnebago Navion have identical floorplans, identical interior and exterior selections, the identical chassis, specifications etc.

Whether you choose the Winnebago View or Navion name, with each you will experience the power and performance of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, providing exceptional fuel economy and a comfortable ride. The Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion include deluxe features including: the MBUX infotainment system with intelligent voice control, heated power cab seats, and advanced safety features, like the active braking assist and lane keeping assist. Inside, you will find the innovative SuperShell sleeper deck with premium thermal and acoustic insulation making the front bunk more comfortable than ever before.
For your next journey, choose upscale details and unparalleled comfort. Experience a luxurious ride with the Winnebago View or Winnebago Navion Class C diesel motorhome!

2020 Winnebago View Floorplan Overview

10 New Features in the 2020 Winnebago View

Winnebago View Supershell Sleeper Deck

Sprinter Platform On the Rise

Article Originally Appeared on RVPro

Russ Garfin, director of product management for Class B and C motorhomes at Winnebago Industries, still vividly recalls back in 2006 when he showed the company’s first Sprinter-based Class C to his district sales managers.

“That was our first serious effort at a more European-style of a Class C motorhome. They all liked it but were nervous whether it would sell or not. They all said that’s pretty cool-looking – but it’s too expensive,” he recalls.

“‘It’s fun to have something new, but who’s going to buy it?’ they asked,” he says now.

Winnebago’s View and Navion – the first Class C’s ever built on the Sprinter chassis for the North American market – did attract buyers and stood for years as the top-selling brand in their class.

The rest of the industry eventually began building on the Sprinter platform and slowly caught up, however, necessitating a new review of the market. The result of that review at Winnebago is a new series comprised of the Vita and Porto, built on a Sprinter chassis that is 13 inches shorter than the View/Navion and retails for some $25,000 to $30,000 less.

“We’ve given customers another choice,” Garfin says simply. The difference between View/Navion and Vita/Porto is basically in the level of amenities offered between the two products.

“Something we still do better than anybody else is we provide more carrying capacity, so whether it’s a Vita or Porto or even a View or Navion, if you equip them the same as competitor coaches, you’re always going to find more carrying capacity in a Winnebago motorhome and that’s because we design in weight savings.

“Our styling on the 2020 View and Navion is gorgeous with all-new walnut and white interiors and an all-new front cap,” Garfin says. “From top to bottom, we’re second to none as far as appointments and in comfort.”

How will these new brands fare in the current marketplace?

“I think it was the right decision, but it’s too early to say how successful it will be,” says Garfin. “A lot of people shopping for a Winnebago motorhome on a Sprinter chassis are going to consider a new View or Navion first before they look at anything else. It’s going to take a little bit of time for the new brands to build some momentum, but we’re seeing that. We’ve made quite a few upgrades to the interiors and the exteriors on the Vita and Porto since we launched it with options like full-body paint, theater seating and hydraulic leveling jacks, which are well-received features. It really did change the position on our dealers’ lots.”

By the start of 2020, Winnebago Sprinter brands were gaining traction in the marketplace, Garfin stresses. “We are confident we will grow our share.”

Like all RVs, floorplans are king. Leading the way for Winnebago is View and Navion’s 24D floorplan, the No. 1-selling Sprinter floorplan in North America, featuring a full-size slide with a Murphy bed.

“People really like the openness of that full-size slide. When the Murphy bed is up, you have a couch and a big, U-shaped lounge so you have lots of seating and dining choices,” Garfin says.

Following the 35th Annual Florida RV Supershow in Tampa in January, Garfin reported, “We saw excellent response to our new Sprinter products, retailing the new Boldt, Vita and View models starting with the first day of the show. Our Sprinter sales well surpassed our sales at this show last year.”

“The View and Navion created the Sprinter market here – and even though the market has a ton of more competitor models, with everyone looking to mirror Winnebago’s success – we are now gaining momentum with our new products and we expect Winnebago’s identical sister brands the View and Navion will continue leading the market going forward,” Garfin says.

 8 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano

Top 10 New Features in the 2020 Winnebago View

 

15 Reasons we love the Winnebago Boldt

There is so much to love about the Winnebago Boldt, a Winnebago Class B Campervan built on the Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis. The Boldt comes with available 4WD and is the first fuel efficient Mercedes Benz VS30 Van partnered with the Pure3 Volta Power Systems Lithium Energy System, providing a generator free stealth like #VanLife experience.

The energy and fuel-efficient Winnebago Boldt, diesel-powered Camper Van is equipped with ample storage and spacious floorplans, making it the perfect blend of innovation and comfort.

Winnebago Boldt

Listed below are the top features we love in the Winnebago Boldt.

  1. Taking full advantage of the proven Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis, the Boldt’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel provides 325 lb ft of torque and 188 hp. It includes a seven speed automatic 7G Tronic Plus Transmission with grade braking.
  2. An additional benefit of the Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis is the many active and passive Safety Features that are included with it. These safety features include: Active Brake Assist – In case of any oncoming danger, Active Brake Assist warns drivers and if necessary, will brake for them. As a class leading feature, it is the only system that can recognize and respond to pedestrians. Active Distance Assist Distronic – In high traffic areas, Active Distance Assist Distronic keeps enough distance between your vehicle and the one ahead of you to ensure optimal safety. Active Lane Keep Assist – If a driver is ever to unintentionally drift or leave their designated lane, Active Lane Keep Assist immediately alerts them. Traffic Sign Assist – Throughout travel, speed limits can be ever-changing. Traffic sign assist helps to identify the correct speed and adjust accordingly. Blind Spot Assist – Including Rear Cross Traffic Alert:  Blind Spot Assist provides warnings regarding vehicles in the blind spot while Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns about crossing objects when reversing. Crosswind Assist – Detects strong gusts of crosswind and helps 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.
  3. The Boldt’s Pure3 Advanced Energy Management System, powered by Volta Power Systems, is an automotive-grade lithium system similar to what is seen in electric vehicle applications. The Pure3 system begins with a 48V energy pack that provides 11,600 watt-hours of energy.  The energy pack is watertight, durable, and encased in a steel housing that is the safest on the market, and batteries are climate controlled. The Pure3 provides complete 30 Amp, whole coach electricity using a 3,600-watt pure sine inverter. The Boldt’s dedicated 58V alternator, or under hood generator, is twice as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris and provides quick recharge time.
  4. The Boldt comes with two 115-watt solar panels and a junction port for additional portable solar. The MPPT Solar Controller provides best in class solar absorption, up to 30 percent better than competitors, giving you more off the grid performance.
  5. An industry leading 5 Years/ 100,000 Mile Warranty on the Boldt’s engine and transmission provides you piece of mind as you head down the road.
  6. The Winnebago Boldt is Winnebago’s first true 4-Season RV. Equipped with Automotive Grade Insulation the Winnebago Boldt boasts an R-Value of 4.4 per square inch. The Winnebago Boldt insulation is odor-free and won’t settle as you go off road and in loose terrain. The Winnebago Boldt’s insulation is built for longevity of the RV.
  7. The Winnebago Boldt’s LED High Performance Headlights improve illumination, maximizing the view of the road ahead while further enhancing the Boldt’s overall aesthetic with a sleek front end design.
  8. The MBUX Infotainment System in the Winnebago Boldt makes trips more enjoyable with the multitude of sophisticated MBUX infotainment optional features, including an oversized 10 inch touchscreen, wireless charging, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. It also includes advanced GPS navigation built right in.  The MBUX Hey Mercedes voice guidance and artificial intelligence services are also included. It features touch steering wheel controls and MBUX touch control buttons. These are touch sensitive controls on the steering wheel for instrument cluster and infotainment system control, similar to a smart phone interface, which respond to vertical and horizontal swiping movements.

8 Reasons We Love the Winnebago Vita

There are so many reasons to love the Winnebago Vita! Find our top 8 reasons to love the Winnebago Vita below.

See our Winnebago Vita inventory here.

  1. Two functional floorplans – The Winnebago Vita is available in the 24F and the 24P. Both the 24F and 24P floorplans have at least 40-cubic-feet of exterior storage and can sleep someone up to 6’4’’ (even at the dinette, thanks to the hidden bonus leg room space)! Winnebago has also consciously made especially large galleys, and even the bathroom door of the 24P gives extra space in the bathroom once closed. One of the main differences between the two floorplans is where the slide is located. In the 24F, the dinette is in the slide and in the 24P, the bed is in the slide. To pull in the slide in the 24P, you would fold the hinged mattress beforehand – making the bathroom still accessible without putting the slide out.
  2. Extended Off-the-Grid Functionality with Best-in-Class holding Tanks – You can go off-the-grid for longer with the Vita’s best-in-class holding tank capacities including 37 gallons of fresh water, and 41 gallons of black and gray tank capacities – 35% more than the competitors.
  3. 200-Watts of Solar Standard – In conjunction with the best-in-class holding tanks, the Vita comes with 200-watts of solar power… STANDARD. The 200-watts of solar help keep your batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use. The Vita and Porto’s solar system is also expandable up to 450-watts. Most RVs in this segment come with solar prep or solar as an option for an additional fee.
  4. Bring More with You – OCCC and Storage – You will not run out of storage in the Winnebago Vita! The Vita was created with full-timers in mind. The 24F floorplan features 42-cubic-feet of lighted, exterior storage and the 24P features 45. The Vita also has the occupant cargo carrying capacity to be able to safely bring it with you. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV. Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000 pounds, while the new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity.
  5. Comfortable Sleeping for 6 – Both Vita floorplans feature comfortable sleeping for 6. New to the Vita is the SuperShell Sleeper Deck. Winnebago’s exclusive SuperShell composite hull is produced in a closed mold with injected urethane foam sandwiched between the fiberglass outer shell and an interior panel. This manufacturing method is similar to how a high-end cooler is constructed. This superior design strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks. The design also reduced the number of parts and processes necessary to build the cab-over, improving quality and durability for our owners.
  6. Budget-Friendly Coach – Winnebago is constantly interviewing owners and keeping a pulse on how the RV market is changing. The Vita is the answer to RVers wanting a motorhome option that is easy for first-time RVers to drive and use, can handle being on the road often, and is capable of boondocking, moochdocking, and other dry camping for extended periods. They’ve also made multiple upgrades to make this RV less likely to need service work. Since many first-time RVers are also looking at lower-priced RVs, Winnebago wanted to create this option to fit their needs without going over budget.
  7. Customizable Storage – The Winnebago Vita features customizable storage including the pantry and linen cabinet. The pantry features removable rods and shelves to customize the space to your needs. So, you could use it as a food pantry or a closet of clothes, etc. The linen cabinet of the 24F also provides additional and easily accessible storage for towels or other supplies.
  8. And last, but certainly not least, is the Mercedes Benz Diesel Chassis that the Winnebago Vita is built on. The Mercedes Chassis provides the Winnebago Vita with unrivaled fuel efficiency and durability.

Top Questions on Winnebago Class B RVs

We recently held a webcast covering the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about Winnebago’s Class B lineup – Winnebago Travato, Revel and Boldt. You can watch the webcast here.

Read our top questions from the webcast below –

  1. In terms of the Truma System, can I use it to heat my coach when I don’t have water in the coach? Yes, it can be used if the RV is winterized.
  2. Are all Winnebago B-Vans 4-Season RVs and what does that mean? As of today, all campervans from Winnebago are four-season. While that is a loose term, for us can you use this in cooler temps? Winnebago has added automotive-grade insulation to all of the campervans and has fully enclosed pressurized water lines. The Travato and the Boldt have heating pads on the holding tanks allowing guests to dump the tanks in sub-freezing temperatures, while the Revel has a cassette toilet.
  3. How do these vans come from the OEM – Mercedes-Benz and Ram – Is Winnebago improving the insulation or any other improvements? The chassis will come as a shell, with exposed sheet metal. Winnebago adds all the insulation and builds the interior components of the campervan. Winnebago is an accredited upfitter of Mercedes-Benz and Sprinter which allows them to add functional windows, unlike some competitors.
  4. Why is my lithium pack not charging? The shut down temperature in the Pure3 system is 37 degrees and if it hits there the lithium pack will not charge.
  5. What has the best ground clearance? The Winnebago Revel has 8” of ground clearance and the Winnebago Travato has 7” of ground clearance.
  6. What is 4WD offered in? The Winnebago Revel (standard 4WD) and it is optional on the Winnebago Boldt.
  7. What are the key differences between the Winnebago Boldt and the Winnebago Era? Why is the Boldt more expensive? The Boldt has the Pure3 lithium system while the Winnebago Era has the Cummins-Onan LP generator is the key factor that drives the cost.
  8. What is the best campervan if I want to bring several passengers? The Travato and Revel have seatbelts for four while the Boldt has seat belts for up to 6.
  9. What is located under the bench seat in the Travato 59G? In non-lithium Travato it houses the freshwater tank, in the lithium Travato it houses some of the Pure3 system components.
  10. What are our guest’s overall experiences with homeowner associations (HOA) on campervans from Winnebago? Overall, they are favorable. Winnebago uses automotive-grade paint with sleek exteriors that do not look like your typical RV. We have guests that pull the small exterior graphics – like the Winnebago logo to really make the van look stealth.
  11. Will the new Eras have similar insulation to the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will.
  12. What is the timeframe on the Winnebago Solis? We are expecting our first Solis at the end of January 2020.
  13. How easy is it to use the pop-top in the Winnebago Solis? It is very easy to use!
  14. Will the Era have the same chassis options as the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will have the same creature comforts and safety features as the Winnebago Boldt.
  15. Can you use Sumo Springs on the Boldt? Yes, there are options from SumoSprings on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. However, it is one of the most comfortable, best-riding vehicle Winnebago has made.
  16. Can you install a muffler for the generator? They are typically called a resonator. They improve the exterior noise of the generator.
  17. Can I sleep with the bed in the Winnebago Revel half way up? Yes, you can use it in any position.
  18. How does grade-braking work on the Boldt? It uses the power of the transmission to assist in your braking.
  19. Where do we see the Winnebago Solis entering our lineup? We think it is a new segment based on the features. It is built to be rugged and durable with the underscore being simple.
  20. What is the fuel economy between the chassis offerings? The ProMaster is about 16 – 18 mpg and the Sprinter is typically seeing 18 – 21 mpg.
