Highlights of the New 2022 Winnebago Journey

America’s best selling class A diesel pusher returns home to Forest City, IA production with the unveiling of the all new Winnebago Journey!

Journey Highlights

Built atop the Freightliner XCM modular rail bridge chassis, the Journey will be known not only for its versatile floorplan designs with the latest in residential living comforts and technology, but for the new automotive infused design that provides for the quietest, and most visible ride in the industry.

Inspired in development from automotive design experts with focus in quiet performance and aerodynamic design, you’ll first notice the front aerodynamic design raked to minimize wind whip, with a composite front end that wraps behind the driver in passenger in the most insulated front end in the RV industry to provide the quietest ride and quietest living while running the generator.


The all new Winnebago Journey is built atop the Freightliner XCM modular bridge chassis, which, like a bridge, a modular frame gets its rigidity from an engineered truss structure, which can adapt in lengths from 34 and 36 upwards of 40 ft.  Construction of the new modular bridge chassis with huck bolts become integral original metal bonding to the chassis metal itself to ensure flush, level flooring, which alleviates creaks and pops in transit.  This design provides a 4x stiffer torsion on the chassis to ensure superior ride and handling along with quiet travels along the way.

  • The coach is powered by the side radiator mounted Cummins ISL bosting 1,150 lb ft of torque or power.   The side radiator engine location allows for flush floor bathroom and bedroom navigation!
  • Mated up to a 6 speed automatic Allison transmission
  • All Journeys will have a standard 10,000 lb factory installed tow package
  • The Freightliner Opti-View dash with available Xcite Nav N Go 12.3 Infotainment provides automotive experiences that keep your eyes on the road
  • High performance LED front lighting is 30% brighter than current class A diesel pushers
  • The largest curved one piece panoramic windshield provides critical view of lower stanchions and other obstacles lower than the horizon dash view of other diesel pushers, while providing full visibility to each of the tear drop larger chrome side mirrors
  • Investments have also been made in larger Michelin tires than competing class A diesel pushers for superior ride and handling


  • The Journey is as stylish as it functional with a canvassing patio side, motion activated integrated roof rail awning
  • Cavernous pass thru storage is available in every floorplan, along with slide out compartment trays for easy access… certain interior storage bays are upwards of 31″ in height!
  • An industry first is unveiled with soft close, electronically actuated cargo door latches, which function much like the liftgate on your current SUV… no more slamming of compartments doors under slide rooms.
  • The basement compartment doors are radius designed at the bottom to mimic a high end luxury utility vehicle.
  • HWH hydraulic leveling with HWH in wall slide rooms.
  • A European dual latch entry door provides ease of entry and exit with opening and closing latches at ergonomically placed levels while providing the quietest insulation when closed, paired with an ultra functional and sleek screen door, providing easy exit and entrance.
  • Powered water and electric reels provide easy ergonomic access to connections.


  • Each Winnebago Journey floorplan carries its own distinct mark with residential living in the main area with Versa swivel front seats with easy navigation and plush comfort.
  • New features include roller shade garages hidden out of sight with roller garages behind each of the solid wood cabinets and contemporary hardware and beautiful all new cabinetry surround the main living areas.
  • An automotive roof liner provides additional insulative acoustic benefits to keep out the noise of the outside world.
  • Available heated floors provide the same living amenities as if you were in the comforts of your own home.


  • An all electric coach with absolutely no LP on board provides for induction cooking in the kitchen area.
  • Well thought out design includes a counter depth residential refrigerator and freezer to provide a stylish sight line front to rear.
  • A complete residential kitchen setup with convection cooking, solid surface countertops and available dishwasher is available in every Winnebago Journey.


  • Beyond great bedroom storage and stacked washers and dryers, all Journeys will have pneumatically reclining and adjustable bed platforms for deeper residential lengths and provide an easy make extension to aid in making the bed each day.

HVAC and Electrical

  • Heating in the Winnebago Journey is efficient and whisper quiet with the Aqua Hot hydronic heating system, which functions off of the electric element when connected or running your genset or off of the quiet efficient diesel burner.   The Aqua Hot is also the hydronic source for the available heated flooring.
  • Cooling off is quite and efficient with each of the Winnebago Journey’s Air Conditioners being insulated and out of view as the Journey uses a continuous plenum of cold air intake and forced air output.
  • The Winnebago Journey is a Winnebago Connected Coach with one touch coach operation from a Smartphone, Tablet or single in wall control panel reducing the stress of complicated technology.  Many functions are even available while you are away from your Journey!
