The Winnebago Solis entered the Class B Campervan market and took it by storm with its available Pop-Top Roof, Rear Annex and numerous 4-Season and Off-Grid features. With the release of the Solis Pocket in 2021, the Winnebago Solis is now available in 3 floorplans with 4-season features. Starting with the Winnebago Solis 59P with compact, flexible living, to the slightly extended Winnebago Solis 59PX with rear gear storage space and included air conditioning and then to the new Winnebago Solis Pocket 36A, Winnebago’s most affordable camper van featuring flexible interior living. All three of the available floorplans are built on the RAM ProMaster chassis, recognized widely for its fuel-efficiency and maneuverability. Additionally, both cab seats in each floorplan have swivel and slide functionality built-in expanding this space by allowing the cab seating to become an integral part of the living space in conjunction with the sofa area.

- Exterior Length: 19′ 9″
- Exterior Height: 19′
- Sleeps: 4 (with pop top)
The Solis 59P and 59PX are similar in features with all-season insulation and plumbing, a space extending rear annex and Truma Combi Eco hydronic heating and on demand hot water with hot water loop purge systems. In addition to the cross coach cab level sleeping, the standard Solis fiberglass studio loft pop top easily expands your sleeping space, offers panoramic views and provides a restful nights sleep with the innovative FROLI sleep system. However, it is also important to point out the differences between the two floorplans to find the Solis that best first your RVing needs!
One difference between these floorplans is that the Winnebago Solis 59P is available with either a rear Murphy+ Bed or rear Sofa Bed while the 59PX and 36A are available with the Murphy+ Bed only. While both the 59PX and 36A include an air conditioner as a standard feature, an air conditioner is an option in the Solis 59P. The optional 13,500 BTU air conditioner is only available in the Solis 59P if the pop-top area is deleted. However, if you want to skip this addition in the 59P, both a Maxx Air premium vent system and front air dash do provide full coach cooling.
- Exterior Length: 21′
- Exterior Height: 9′ 5″
- Sleeps: 4 (with pop top)
The 59PX has a very similar layout to the 59P as it also includes the 59″ x 77″ Murphy+ Bed as a standard feature. Both the 59P and 59PX include below floor storage at the rear. Because of the additional length provided by the 59PX, it also includes the addition of a rear gear garage for maximum storage capacity.
While the 59P floorplan does not include a generator, the 59PX comes equipped with the Cummins Onan QG 2,800-watt high-efficiency gas generator which produces low vibration levels and low noise levels making it approved for the noise ordinance in National Parks. As mentioned previously, another feature of the 59PX (as well as the 36A) that is not standard on the 59P is an air conditioner. The 59PX includes the high-efficiency Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ air conditioner which significantly reduces power drawer compared to previous models.
Solis Pocket (36A)
- Exterior Length: 17′ 10″
- Exterior Height: 9′ 5″
- Sleeps: 3
The Solis Pocket (36A) was released as an answer to those looking for a more compact Class B RV. Built on the RAM ProMaster chassis, it is Winnebago’s most affordable camper van, but that doesn’t mean your backcountry excursions will miss out on any of the comforts of home.
Even though it is considered one of the most compact Class B vans on the market, the Solis Pocket can sleep up to three people with the use of the Murphy+ rear bed with slat bed system and the innovative dinette with additional configurations including a day bed, sofa, and settee loveseat. This setup is one of the best examples of maximizing living space in a compact van.
Additional differences between the Solis Pocket and the other two Solis floorplans is the lack of a full-wet bath or water heater in the Pocket. However, this provides a more simplistic plumbing system which allows the Winnebago Solis Pocket to be considered a four-season RV. This is due to the fact that all tanks and waterlines are above the floor and inside the van. Unlike the Truma Combi Eco heating system in the 59P and 59PX floorplans which provides both furnace and hot water, the Solis Pocket is equipped with the Truma VarioHeat 90% efficient furnace. Also, the Pocket is cooled with the Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ air conditioner.
The Solis Pocket has another notable feature. It has earned the Truma Gold Standard. Truma, a leading supplier in the RV heating and cooling category, independently tested the Solis Pocket and rated it with their Gold Standard for cold weather operation. Also, the removable LP bottle in the Solis Pocket provides owners with the convenience of readily available LP bottles found at supermarkets and home improvement stores across the country.
The Winnebago Solis 59P, Solis 59PX and Solis Pocket are fuel-efficient Class B gas motorhomes designed for adventure on any budget. The all-weather camper van makes you feel right at home no matter where you decide to set up camp! Adapt to any adventure when you own a Winnebago Solis Class B gas motorhome!
