RVs Are a Preferable Way to Travel

Are RVs Easy to Drive? 

RV Class Types Explained A, B, C

Whether you are new to RVing or perhaps new to “motorized” RVing one of the first things you’ll discover is there are different RV Classes: Class A, Class B and Class C RVs and different comforts and accessibility that come with each.

Class A RV’s

Class A

Class A RV’s are large “bus shaped RVs” with a large front windshield. Winnebago Class A RVs run in length between 28’5” (The Winnebago Vista 27P and the Winnebago Adventurer 27N) and 43’3” in the Winnebago Horizon 42Q. Winnebago offers both gas and diesel Class A models that sleep between 6-8 people.

These larger Class A Motorhome floorplans allow you to have many of the amenities of home including models with: a king sized bed, a guest bathroom (master bath plus a ½ bath), washer and dryer and ample storage space in and outside of the coach to allow you to bring the comforts from home with you (and some use the RV as their fulltime home.) Certain Class A models also include an outside entertainment area complete with a TV Entertainment System and Tailgate Package including a small kitchen with a refrigerator, a small sink and storage.

With the longer Class A RV lengths you do typically sacrifice fuel efficiency averaging 6-10 miles per gallon and are sometimes limited on where you can park/camp. Winnebago Class A Gas models include: The Winnebago Intent, the Winnebago Vista and Winnebago Sunstar, and the Winnebago Adventure each built on the Ford Chassis. Winnebago Class A Diesel models include: The Winnebago Forza and the Winnebago Horizon built on the Freightliner XCS and Maxum Chassis.

Class B RV’s

Class B

 

Class B Vans are typically the smallest motorized RV’s, also referred to as Campervans. Due to their petite length they are more agile than RVs in the other RV classes and can drive and park most anywhere.

Winnebago Class B RVs run between 19’7” (the Winnebago Revel) to 22’11” in length (The Winnebago Boldt). This shorter length allows Class B owners to get easily where they need to go to enjoy their next adventurer. Some Class B RV’s are available in 4WD which allows owners even more flexibility on the terrain they can travel on.

Class B RVs are also available in gas and diesel models each of which boast high fuel efficiency with 18-22mpg. They have available sleeping between 2-4 people and due to their small footprint include many creative storage solutions. Winnebago Class B RVs are equipped with a kitchen, a Wet Bath, Sleeping Area and Seating/Dining Area. Winnebago Class B Gas models include: The Winnebago Solis and the Winnebago Travato on the Dodge RAM ProMaster Chassis. Winnebago Class B Diesel models include: The Winnebago Revel, The Winnebago Era and the Winnebago Boldt all on the Mercedes Sprinter Diesel Chassis.

 Class C RV’s

Class C

 

Winnebago Class C RV’s fit right in between Class A and B models. They are available in the longer lengths like the Class A RVs with some of the same amenities, but many owners feel they are easier to drive than the Class A “bus style” RVs. Winnebago Class C RVs are available in both Gas and Diesel models ranging in fuel efficiency between 8-18 mpg (the diesel on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Chassis achieve 16-18 mpg while the gas powered models on the Ford Chassis tend to achieve between 8-10 mpg.)
Winnebago Class C RVs run between 24’5” (the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit 22M) to 32’9” in length (The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit 31H and 31K). Winnebago offers both gas and diesel Class C models that sleep between 4-8 people. All Class C floorplans provide you with a full kitchen, full bath and ample storage.

Winnebago Class C Gas models include: The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit and the Winnebago Outlook on the Ford Chassis. Winnebago Class C Diesel models include: The Winnebago View and Navion and the Winnebago Vita and Porto on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel Chassis.

The Motorhome market can seem vast, however, once you’ve determined the “Class” of RV that best fits your needs you can narrow in on the perfect RV for you.

4 Features that Make RVing Easy and Enjoyable

There has been a renewed interest in camping, specifically RVing in recent months. RVing is a great way to travel across the country without leaving your “home.” In this post, we identified 4 key features that make RVing easy and enjoyable.

Full Kitchen – Every motorhome from Winnebago Industries comes with a full kitchen, including a refrigerator, microwave, oven, sink, and stovetop. Depending on the size of the RV will determine the size of the features. For example, in our popular mid-size Class C Winnebago View and Navion 24D floorplan comes with a 10.7 cubic foot residential refrigerator, a True Induction combination gas and conduction cooktop, and a Greystone convection and microwave oven. In our spacious Class A Vista 29VE, the kitchen includes a large Norcold refrigerator and freezer combo, a microwave, and an oven and stovetop. Regardless of the size of the motorhome, it will come with a fully functioning kitchen that you can prepare your meals from the comfort of your RV no matter where you are.

Outdoor Living Space – The outdoor living space in a Winnebago motorhome opens up another living space in the great outdoors. Nearly all of our motorhomes have an awning that create a great shaded spot under the RV. Some Winnebago motorhomes, like the Winnebago Vista 29VE or the Winnebago Intent, come with a tailgate package that feature an outdoor refrigerator, sink and sometimes a TV. Outdoor living space is integral for RVing because it allows you to enjoy the outdoors while still enjoying the amenities you are used to.

Comfortable Sleeping for Everyone – One of the best parts of RVing is all the options for sleeping. There are several motorhomes that can sleep  8 – 10 people, but are very maneuverable and easy to drive. The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit 26T and 31H can sleep the whole family and then some. The 26T floorplan sleeps up to 8 with the walkaround queen bed, the sofa bed, u-shaped dinette, and overhead bed. The 31H can sleep up to 10 thanks to the walkaround queen bed, sofa bed, overhead bed, u-shaped dinette and bunk beds.

Bathrooms with all the Necessities – all Winnebago motorhomes come with a bathroom that has all the functionalities of a residential bathroom. Winnebago makes floorplans that feature half baths, split baths, and wet baths.

Solar Experiment with the Winnebago Solis

Recently we completed an experiment on the Winnebago Solis to test the solar capabilities and overall off-the-grid capabilities of the van. The Winnebago Solis comes with dual group 31 AGM deep-cycle batteries and a 220-watt flexible solar panel with controller, expandable up to 520-watts. In the experiment, we wanted to test solar power capabilities  of the Solis to keep the refrigerator cool while not hooked to shore power or running the generator. So we took a Solis, filled the refrigerator with water, ice cubes, and some Popsicles and parked it for a week outside not hooked to shore power.

Each day, one of our Sales Consultants went out and checked the solar controller for various readings and checked on the water, ice cubes and Popsicles. The readings we measured were related to the photovoltaic power, or the energy created from the sun hitting the panel. We examined the following readings…

Introducing the NEW Winnebago Solis

Winnebago Solis Makes Curbed’s Best Camper Vans of 2019 List

Winnebago’s Class B Van Lineup: Winnebago Solis, Travato, Revel and Boldt

Top 12 Features in the Winnebago Solis

The all-new, all-weather Winnebago Solis is as versatile as it is affordable, whether you’re cruising beachside or camping slope side. The Solis is chock full of unique features that enable your adventures and passions regardless of what they are.

Watch our video on the TOP FEATURES IN A WINNEBAGO SOLIS

  1. Pop Top The most striking feature on the Winnebago Solis’ is the easy-to-use Pop-Top. This is Winnebago’s first entry into pop-top campervans and the pop-top in the Winnebago Solis is made with durable fiberglass and raises with hinges and gas springs making it easy to raise. The loft in the pop-top has comfortable sleeping for 2 on top of the popular Froli Sleep System. The Solis also features full electricity in the poptop area with lights and outlets. To operate the pop-top release the safety catch on both sides and then release the clamp, a half turn on both sides. Then with a bit of effort, push the pop-top up until the gas shocks takeover. The ladder to access the pop-top is stored above the cab. It comes in two pieces – the top half has hooks and the halves are slide together then the over center latches hold the two halves together. The pop top space has zippered window covers that can be rolled up and Velcroed into place. To bring the top down, you’ll notice there are two red tabs on either side of the pop top. They’re used to pull the canvas in as you pull the top downs. In calm weather conditions you shouldn’t need them. But they will be useful in more windy conditions. So to lower the top, grab the two straps, pull them down and ensure the canvas comes inside and give it one extra tug to get the latch into place, half turn, then the primary clip is engaged. The safety strap will clip into place and then that side is secure. Do the same on the other side.
  2. Rear Desk Work Station/ Murphy+ Bed- The Winnebago Solis offers a flexible interior layout. In the rear is a movable rear desk workstation. This allows for Solis owners to have a unique workstation with a great view through the rear screens. To operate the desk release the barrel catch and lower the folding leg as you lower the table. The table may be slid closer to the galley to be used as an extra prep surface, or you may lift it up and reset it towards the rear of the van so you can enjoy the views from the back of the van. To return the table to its original position, make sure the table is ahead of the crossbar on the bed, fold the leg as you’re raising the bed, fold the leg as your raising the table, and use a barrel catch to secure the table in its location. And when it’s time to go to bed – the Murphy+ Bed System can be lowered to provide additional sleeping space.
  3. Rear Annex – The Winnebago Solis is equipped with a space extending Rear Annex. The Annex provides additional living space and includes a hanging rod and privacy curtain.
  4. Innovative Storage – The Winnebago Solis features innovative storage so you and your guests can bring everything you need to enjoy your adventures.
  5. Integrated Blackout Window Treatments and Sliding Door/Rear Door Screen-  Stay cool in the Solis without an A/C with the integrated side and rear screen door. The side screen door is attached by a strong magnet, so you can open it without having to unzip or slide a finicky screen door. The rear screen door is a full blackout screen with zippered window to provide great airflow to the coach. The integrated window treatments are similar to the rear and side screen door with blackout capabilities.
  6. Water Tank Monitor System with Water Waste Button- The Solis uses a sight glass to read the level of the fresh water tank. It is located on the face of the galley cabinet. It’s back lit providing a nice nightlight and also allows you to see the level of water in the fresh water tank. The Solis comes equipped with Winnebago’s Eco Hot System. What that system does is flush all of the cold water from your hot water lines and routes it back to your freshwater tank. To use the system, with your water pump turned on and your water heater in operation. Go to the valve on the face of the galley, count to six and turn it back to normal. While you’ve had the valve turned on you’ll hear the pump run ad when you turn it back to normal, the pumps should stop. You will now have hot water at all of your fixtures without wasting any freshwater.
  7. 3-Point Seat Belts– A new feature in the Winnebago Solis is the automotive-grade seating with three-point seat belts. These provide guests the option to bring more people and travel more safely.
  8. Slam Latching System for Cabinets- the Slam latching system and the upper cabinet faces are made from a highly durable laminate that will withstand all of your adventures. The Slam latching system is highly rugged and will work well for Rvers on the go.
  9. Flooring- The Winnebago Solis was designed for adaptable adventure from ski slope to surfside. The heavy-duty vinyl flooring throughout will assist guests in their adventure. It is highly durable and easy to clean. It will be easy for you to clean out the sand, snow, or anything else you encounter in your adventures.
  10. Heated Wet Bath with Cassette Toilet – The Winnebago Solis comes equipped with a heated Wet Bath with a Cassette Toilet so there is no need to connect to a dump station.
  11. Flexible Solar Power – The Winnebago Solis comes equipped with a 220-Watt Flexible Solar Panel to provide Off-Grid Power. The one panel system is fitted to the top of the Pop-Top Roof for a sleek look and allows you to use your Solis without relying on electrical hookups or a generator for power.
  12. Premium All Season Insulation and Plumbing – The Winnebago Solis is equipped with All-Season Insulation and Plumbing which helps extend your camping season. Keep the sounds of the road out and the weather at bay with the floor to ceiling insulation, zipped air barrier window coverings and interior coach waterlines.
