5 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is a Great RV!

Reason #1 – Floorplan Selection

Winnebago gives you choices to customize the perfect Travato for your needs. The Winnebago Travato is available in two floorplans – the 59G is an extremely flexible floorplan with a front dinette area, large rear corner bed that folds up to make room for bikes or other large items and a corner bath. The 59K is a very open floorplan for a B-van. It boasts two twin beds, that also function as a seating area, that configure into cross coach sleeping, a spacious rear bath/shower area, and cab seats that swivel to become an integral part of the living space. Both the 59K and 59G are available in the lithium Travato and are identified as the KL and the GL.

Reason #2 – Best-in-Class Pure3 Energy Management System

The Pure3 Energy Management System comes standard in the Travato 59GL and 59KL. This best-in-class system is U.S. built in partnership with Volta Power Systems, helping RVers “cut the cord.” Pure3 is built with advanced engineering and a simple user interface so you can have confidence and peace of mind as you travel down the road. The 48V automotive-grade lithium energy storage pack provides up to 8,700-watt hours of energy, and powers all coach appliances. Designed for reliability, the Pure3 system makes replenishing power fast, simple, and available through multiple charging options. The 58V alternator, although compact in size, packs a punch and quickly charges the pack as you drive. Pulling off for the night is stress-free with this advanced lithium system that meets all your power needs without requiring power hookups or the use of a generator.

This fully integrated system includes a powerful 3,600-watt pure sine inverter that offers 30 amps. of power at any time, powering air conditioning and appliances wherever you go. The best part of this hassle-free system is that it operates on the push of a button and a simple analog gauge that tells you how much energy remains. With the same automotive-grade technology used in hybrid vehicles and EV applications, this newly advanced lithium energy system provides better value, ease of use, and confidence as you travel, live, work, and play.

Reason #3 – Premium Interior Materials

The Travato comes standard with solid surface Corian countertops. Corian countertops are extremely durable and will survive the daily wear and tear of RVing. Corian has a non-porous surface that prevents dirt and stains from penetrating the material therefor cleaning is a breeze. Underneath the Corian countertops are the lightweight and Technoform cabinetry. Technoform cabinetry is Italian-designed, curved cabinetry that is extremely lightweight. The Travato has UltraLeather from UltraFabrics in the 59G. UltraLeather gives you the softness, comfort and luxury that is more durable than leather and extremely easy to clean. UltraLeather has been tested and proven to surpass competitive fabrics for integrity and durability.

Reason #4 – Features RVers Love

For the outdoor lover, the Travato comes with an armless powered patio awning with LED lights, an exterior speaker system, and an optional bike rack and luggage rack with movable ladder. And after a long, adventurous day outside you can wash your gear off with the exterior wash station with hot and cold water. Solar Power is a hot topic in the Van Life community and Winnebago did not ignore the demand in the Travato. The Travato now has (2) 100-watt solar panels with a junction box and plugs for additional panels standard.

Reason #5 – Flexible Sleeping Options & Froli Deluxe Sleeping System

The 59K has two twin beds in the rear of the coach that can be used as separate sleeping spots or can switch into a cross-coach sleeping space that measures 54” x 76” and the 59G floorplan has a Queen-size corner bed that folds up for storage and a Flex Bed System in the front of the coach. The 59G’s Flex Bed System utilizes the dinette and bench seat to create sturdy, cross-coach sleeping measuring at 42” x 72”. The innovative FROLI system is comprised of individual light weight, adjustable springs adhered to the bed frame that provide users with an unparalleled comfort and increased airflow underneath their mattress. The mattress in the Travato rests on a surface that allows air to pass through and is made up of many individual springs that flex and adapt to your body shape, weight and movements.

Top Questions on the Lithium-Powered Travato

Recently, we covered the Winnebago Travato 59GL and 59KL with the Pure3 Energy Management System in our live interactive webcast. We collected the top questions we received in that webcast. You can WATCH OUR WEBCAST HERE on the Winnebago Travato 59GL and 59KL. We also covered the 2019 model year changes in the 59G and 59K and introduced the Pure3 Energy Management System in a webcast earlier this year – WATCH IT HERE.

Questions from the Winnebago Travato Webcast

What is the difference in operation between the Pure3 system vs. the Coachmen lithium system?

The Pure3 system is considerably easier to operate – it is a one button operation that is run off one inverter. The coachmen has several different gauges to operate the system. Read our blog post on the Pure3 Energy Management vs. the Coachmen Galleria lithium system here.

Does the inverter need to be on to run 12-V appliances in the Travato 59KL and 59GL?

No the inverter does not need to be on. The inverter is only required to be on when you are wanting to power 120-volt electronics, like the air conditioner, without shore power.

How do you charge the Pure3 System in the Travato 59KL and 59GL?

  • Underhood generator – The Pure3 Energy Pack can also be charged through the underhood generator or second alternator. The Travato’s dedicated 58-volt alternator is twice as powerful as the competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris. It also allows you to completely recharge your battery in approximately 1.4 hours allowing you to get back on the road and off-the-grid.
  • Shoreline – Like other RVs, the Pure3 Energy Pack can be charged off shoreline power or when it is hooked up to power at a campsite. However, unlike most other RVs, the Travato 59KL and 59GL are equipped with a 3600-watt pure sine wave inverter bringing 30 amps of power wherever you go.
  • Solar Package – The Pure3 Energy Pack can be charged by the solar power system. The Travato 59KL and 59GL’s MPPT solar controller provides best-in-class solar absorption, up to 30% better than competitors, giving you more off-the-grid performance. The Travato comes standard with 200-watts with ports to plug in additional panels.

What mode charges the Travato 59KL and 59GL the fastest?

The underhood generator. The Travato’s dedicated 58-volt 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 the auto-start and high-idle control significantly extends air conditioner run time.

How long can you run the AC off the Pure3?

6-8 hours if you are running several systems like the refrigerator and the Truma Combi at the same time.

What are the considerations for cold weather operation?

The lithium battery pack is in a sealed and insulated compartment. Temperatures in the compartment are regulated by the interior temperature of the motorhome.  A good rule of thumb is that if you as the coach owner are comfortable inside, so is your Pure3 lithium pack. The Travato’s Volta Power Systems Pure3 Lithium Energy Pack is sealed in a battery compartment that is heated and cooled with an environmental fan:

  • Fan will turn on at 59°F (Heat Mode) or 110°F (Cool Mode).
  • Fan will turn off at 68°F (Heat Mode) or 90°F (Cool Mode).

The Pure3 pack is discharged as required by the load and should only be used around the following conditions:

  • High Temperature Limit: 135°F
  • Low Temperature Limit: -4°F.

What is the lifespan of the batteries?

The expected useful life of the batteries is 10 years and they are covered by an industry-leading 8 year warranty.

Is the vehicle a true 4 season RV?

Yes. The water lines are inside the coach along with the battery pack that is insulated and heated by the Truma Combi Eco Plus advanced climate control system providing coach heat and quick hot water recovery with LP and electrical heating using 1,750 watts of heating elements

Has Winnebago road tested the Travato 59KL and 59GL?

Absolutely. There is an employee at Winnebago that has put on over 10,000 miles and has yet to charge the system with shore power. Winnebago also tested the location of the underhood generator to ensure users don’t have issues with ground clearance causing damage to the underhood generator.

Currently, Lichtsinn RV has in-stock 2019 Travato 59K, 59G, 59KL and 59GL models. You can see our Travato inventory here.

Explore the National Parks in the National Park Foundation Travato

For more than six decades, Winnebago Industries has created products that enable customers to explore America’s national parks. Winnebago Industries, Inc., a leading outdoor lifestyle product manufacturer, strengthened that connection by announcing a multi-year partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, in support of the Find Your Park Movement. This public awareness campaign inspires people of all backgrounds and abilities to discover and share their own unique connections to America’s national parks.

National Park Foundation Travato

 

To launch the partnership, Winnebago is proud to announce the debut of a limited-edition National Park Foundation Travato revealed for the first time at RVX: The RV Experience, a recreation vehicle industry trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah. The design teams at Winnebago created a new Travato design, inspired by the National Park Foundation, featuring exclusive graphics and the Pure3 Energy Management System that has a larger lithium battery pack than the traditional Travato KL and GL with the Pure3 Energy Management System offering users 11,600 watt-hours of power. The Travato also has upgraded wheels and tires to allow you to get off the beaten path, the popular Ram Mounts (similar to those featured in the Winnebago Revel) and Sumo Springs, a popular aftermarket addition to Travatos, all are now standard features. The National Park Travato now has a new air conditioner that is up to 8 decibels quieter than previous models, which will come in handy in National Parks that have noise and generator ordinances.  Following RVX, James and Stef Adinaro of the Fit RV, will travel in a new limited-edition National Park Foundation Travato to share stories from the road.

“One of our goals through this partnership is to inspire RVers and other adventurers to visit national parks that are lesser known,” said Winnebago product manager Russ Garfin. “The Travato with the Pure3 Energy system is the perfect vehicle to do just that with its ability to disconnect from shore power for longer periods of time and go where most RVers can’t.”

Winnebago committed to donating a portion of the sales of the National Park Foundation Travatos back to the National Park Foundation. Winnebago Industries President and CEO Michael Happe said,“We firmly believe that America’s national parks offer unparalleled opportunities to experience the beauty of nature and the depth of our shared heritage at some of the most scenic and historic locations in the United States. It is an honor to support the work of the National Park Foundation in pursuit of our shared goal, to connect more people with transformative outdoor experiences.”

Four Factors to Look for in a Lithium Battery RV

Better energy systems are the next wave in RVs. More owners want their AC and other appliances to run longer—long enough to keep pets cool for hours, and still provide hot showers while running other appliances. But they also want to untether from campground outlets and avoid noisy generators that compete with the sounds of nature.

That’s why there’s a buzz around lithium ion batteries—the kind that power electric and hybrid cars. Traditional lead-acid batteries like to be charged relatively slowly compared with lithium ions. The faster charge rate combined with much greater capacity for their weight is what makes lithium ions a true game-changer.

Black energy pack

A few RV “techies” are installing their own systems and posting DIY instructions online. But if you’re not that much of an engineer, you’ll be happy to know a few RVs now come with optional lithium batteries built-in. At Winnebago, we’ve started with one of our most popular B vans, the Travato, introducing the Pure3 Energy Management System in our 2019 Travato 59GL and 59KL. (See video here.)  These two models are fully engineered around the most advanced energy system available (see comparison chart).

If you’re seriously comparing RV battery systems, here are the main factors to keep in mind:

Available power

Think of power as three traits: charging speed, battery capacity, and how long the charge lasts. Most new RV lithium cells, including the do-it-yourself kind, are just 12 volts—a size that typically requires a long charge time and quickly depletes. If you want a rapid charge or several more hours of reliable juice, look for a more robust system, like the 48-volt Pure3.

The Winnebago system recharges from either a conventional outlet or a dedicated 58V alternator hooked up to the engine and a solar panel on the roof helps maintain the charge. During a charge cycle—whether manually initiated or requested by the battery—the Travato’s engine starts and ramps up to 1600 rpms, dramatically reducing recharge time compared with conventional batteries or smaller lithiums. You’ll quickly have 30 amps of 110v power for heating, cooking, or air conditioning.

Ease of use

Fewer RV owners are parking near a hook-up station for very long. They’re blazing out to the trailhead, exploring a National Park, or dry camping at an outdoor music festival. If this sounds like you, you need a system that restores battery power while you run the engine. Even short trips will do it.

And when you’re parked, the Travato 59GL and 59KL have an auto-start feature that starts the engine to recharge the battery. This feature extends the run time of the air conditioner beyond the battery’s fixed capacity. It’s a convenience that provides extra peace of mind when you’re gone from the RV for an extended period of time—for example, when you leave your pets for an evening out to dinner.

Ease of use includes keeping tabs on available energy. You shouldn’t have to scratch your head over the readout on a voltage indicator. The Pure3 system has a simple analog gauge that lets you know when it’s running low—like the gas gauge on your car.

 

Durability

Look for a battery that’s built to last. The best value and least hassle will be one that’s automotive-grade like the Pure3. You’d generally expect to replace a common lead-acid battery several times over the life of your RV, but the Pure3 is built to work as long as the Travato does, just like batteries in electric cars. To get a unit this durable, Winnebago worked with Volta, the leading name in vehicle energy systems.

Protection from the elements contributes to long life. For that, we mounted the Pure3 below the coach and inside a water-resistant, insulated steel housing. Cabin air circulates around the compartment when the weather gets too hot or cold. And the whole system is compact to provide ample clearance, even on rutty roads.

The ultimate test

Beyond tech specs, the key test is lifestyle. Will it enable the uncomplicated RV life you want? Our goal with the Travato 59GL and 59KL was to take lithium technology out of the realm of geek-dom and put it in the hands of the everyday RVer. For $20,000 above the Travato’s regular MSRP, the advanced Pure3 energy system is a practical solution when you average its cost and comforts over the entire life of your RV.

We’re pretty sure lithium ion systems are going mainstream in the not-too-distant future. So, when it comes time to shop around, look under the hood—or, in Winnebago’s case, under the coach. Make sure the energy system you choose has the capacity, durability, and simplicity you need for truly carefree adventures.
