Winnebago Motorhome Quality: Four Questions to Ask Before You Buy

Winnebago Launches New Products at RVX

Additions to the motorhome lineup include the Boldt, View, Intent 28Y and Forza 34T AE. Winnebago Towables will showcase a series of new floorplans from the Spyder, Micro Minnie Fifth Wheel, Minnie Plus Fifth Wheel, Minnie, Micro Minnie and Minnie Drop lines.

Boldt — The Boldt is a four-season coach intended for real world use, the release noted. The Pure3 Advanced Energy system eliminates the traditional RV generator and gives owners the ability to power through the night without the use of shore power.



“The Boldt perfectly balances between sophistication and practicality,” said Product Manager Russ Garfin. “Our latest introduction to the B-van lineup is a quiet, comfortable camper van that can thrive in nearly any environment.”

The Boldt offers two floorplans, the 70KL and 70BL and is built on the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis which features a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine, blind spot monitoring, active brake assist, rain sensor and auto-high beam assist.

View — The View has been redesigned and features the all-new SuperShell Sleeper Deck that provides premium thermal and acoustic insulation, advanced Mercedes technology, new and upscale residential amenities, and other features to extend off-grid capability. It includes standard 200-watt solar and a 2,000-watt inverter.

Winnebago View

The View 24J and 24D will be on display at RVX. Both will showcase new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis features such as brake assist, lane keeping assist, LED headlights and adaptive cruise control.

Intent 28Y — The Intent’s newest floorplan features three slide-outs, a bedroom with a walk-around queen bed, and a large galley, the release noted.

Forza 34T AE — Like the other two wheelchair-friendly models in the AE lineup, (the Intent 30R AE, Adventurer 30T AE) the Forza 34T AE features a wheelchair lift with an 800-pound capacity with controls that let wheelchair users independently enter and exit the coach with a key-fob remote.

Other wheelchair-friendly improvements include expanded hallways and toilet areas; a roll-in shower with assist bar and accessible faucet controls and adjustable showerhead. There are reachable appliances, systems monitor, light and generator switch placement, and a power transfer seat option as well.
