Winnebago Solis Named by RVPro Best in Show at Open House

The sheer volume of new RVs on display at Open House combined with the dizzying array of special features and amenities, made for difficult choices when RV PRO’s veteran editorial team attempted to narrow the massive list of contenders for inclusion in this special section highlighting what were determined to be RV PRO’s Top 20 Best of Show units for 2020. An RV is a manifestation of dreams. It’s inherent in its very nature – the moment someone said, “Let’s put a house on wheels.” With the introduction of the Solis, Winnebago proves how much it is listening to its customer base and what dreams they may have. Winnebago Solis 59P

A sister of the Travato Class B, the Solis was influenced by adventurers (like a utility light on the exterior to see hookups). In particular, one filmmaker enjoyed traveling to the beach and staring at the stars, so he custom-built a roof to do so.

That input is instantly noticeable with Solis’ fiberglass pop-top, which expands into a well-cushioned sleeping space with panoramic views for two adults. The roof bed utilizes a Froli Sleep System designed using quickly adjusting springs, invoking a floating feeling, so users can sail into space.

The all-weather Solis was constructed with adventurers in mind. It boasts what Winnebago Corporate Trainer Anthony Kelindoi refers to as a “surf-to-slope” design.

“You want to be able to use it in any situation,” he says.

The rear annex floor is comprised of a honeycomb vinyl material that can be sprayed clean after, say, surfing or snowboarding. Other Class B’s may incorporate lauan wood, which wouldn’t make that possible, according to Kelindoi. And changing into gear between activities is made easier with a rod extension widening the rear doors and a durable privacy screen that runs across it.

The automotive-grade insulation and waterline routing helps with heating dramatically. The efficiency is increased by a standard, 220-watt Xantrex solar panel and a Truma Combi Eco heating system.

All plumbing sits above floor and rinsing off after a swim is simple in the wet bath equipped with a Thetford cassette toilet. The kitchen includes a two-burner range top from Suburban and a 12-volt, compressor refrigerator for high altitudes and multiple level angles. A lighted glass tube in the galley indicates where water levels are for a more accurate read – no electric interface to know gallon count. Two molded bench seats are extra comfy despite their rugged appearance, with cream-colored Ultraleather sewn with “W” patterns all across.

Built on a RAM ProMaster 280-horsepower chassis, the Solis sleeps up to four adults and has an overall European design. A Murphy-bed in the back is comprised of slats and converts from a table with cozy cushions spanning the 6-foot-and-4- inch interior width. Zip screens on all the windows achieve full blackout for uninterrupted sleep.
The Class B has an MSRP of $100,667.

What impressed RV PROWinnebago has listened to its Class B customers to arrive at a product line that makes it possible to venture anywhere. From the magnets on the ceiling for the cabinet doors to eliminate the head-bump factor, down to the ample space throughout the entire camper, the Solis will have heads turning with its sleek, youthful, and minimalist design.

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.
