Winnebago Vita vs. Winnebago View

The Winnebago View, the Winnebago Navion and the Winnebago Vita are each built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel Chassis. Each are equipped with 200-watt solar panels that come standard with each model and are expandable for additional solar power to help keep their 2 deep-cycle, Group 31 RV batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use.

In addition, the Winnebago View, Winnebago Navion and Winnebago Vita provide extended off-the-grid functionality with best-in-class holding tanks and generator. Go off-the-grid for longer with these models with holding tank capacities of 30-37 gallons of fresh water (dependent on floorplan), and 41 gallons capacity for black and gray tanks. Each is powered with the 3,600-watt Cummins Onan® MicroQuiet LP generator. The Winnebago View and Navion offer an optional 3,200-watt Cummins Onan® Diesel generator.

Each of these models also provide comfortable sleeping for up to 6 people. They feature the Super Shell Sleeper Deck. The superior design of the Super Shell strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks.

But that is where the similarities end. See below the difference between the Winnebago Vita and the Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion.

View-vs.-Vita

WINNEBAGO VITA

Base Price: $125,171

Floorplans – The Winnebago Vita is available in 2 floorplans, the 24F and the 24P. Winnebago has consciously made expansive galleys in the Vita, and even the bathroom door of the 24P gives extra space in the bathroom once closed. One of the main differences between the two floorplans is where the slide is located. In the 24F, the dinette is in the slide and in the 24P, the bed is in the slide.

Galley – The well-planned galley area of the Winnebago Vita includes many of the comforts of home including a double-door 7.3 cu. ft. residential Refrigerator/freezer, a 3-burner range top w/glass cover and a lighted spice rack.

OCCC (Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity) – The new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV.

Customizable Storage – The Winnebago Vita features customizable storage including the pantry and linen cabinet. The pantry features removable rods and shelves to customize the space to your needs. This allows you to use it as a food pantry or a closet of clothes, or for whatever fits your needs. The linen cabinet of the 24F provides additional and easily accessible storage for towels or other supplies.

Power  – The Winnebago Vita includes a 1,000-watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter to safely power electronics in your RV.

Cab Radio – The Winnebago Vita Infotainment radio includes a 6.5 inch LCD color touch screen monitor, rear color camera assist, and Bluetooth connectivity for hands free calling, voice guidance in GPS apps such as Apple Maps or Google Maps, and wireless connectivity to listen to all of your downloaded music, and audio apps such as Spotify, Pandora, Radio AppOne, or SiriusXM satellite radio.

Galley – Inside the Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion you’ll find a Large Compressor Driven Refrigerator – The compressor refrigerator provides you several benefits including more consistent cooling and operation in un-level terrain. The compressor refrigerator is 10.7 cubic. The Winnebago View and Navion feature a hybrid cooktop with one dedicated induction cooktop and one dedicated gas cooktop. Having a gas cooktop will allow you to cook your meals while dry camping, and an induction cooktop allows for more energy efficient cooking. Lighted In-Drawer Cabinets.

Winnebago Motorhome Quality: Four Questions to Ask Before You Buy

Winnebago View vs. Winnebago Navion

Each year at Lichtsinn RV we help hundreds of guests on their path towards RVing in a fuel efficient Mercedes Benz, making us the largest volume dealer for Winnebago Views and Navions in all of North America.

The all new View and Navion have been restyled for 2020 and include the innovative fuel efficient Mercedes Benz VS30 chassis with all new contemporary European styling!  With new upscale details throughout, the View and Navion offer the freedom to live large in a compact coach. Combining freedom with comfort, this vehicle has been completely redesigned inside and out for an unparalleled Class C experience.

Which brings us to one of the most common questions we receive regarding these full featured Class C Diesel RVs. What is the difference between the Winnebago View and the Winnebago Navion. The answer quite simply is: The name.

Winnebago View vs. Navion

The only difference in these two models is literally the name. The Navion is a legacy name from when Winnebago Brands included the Itasca line of RVs. At that time Winnebago offered the Winnebago View and the Itasca Navion. Even at that time, there were very few differences between the Winnebago View and Itasca Navion. (Depending on the model year the differences were more extensive. However, towards the end of life of the Itasca Brand they were very similar.) The reason for both brands to exist was simply that some dealers were authorized to sell the Navion and some the View. Lichtsinn RV was one of the few Winnebago dealerships who was authorized to sell both.

Since Winnebago Industries discontinued the Itasca Brand they moved select legacy Itasca models to the Winnebago Brand, the result is the Winnebago Navion. The Winnebago View and the Winnebago Navion have identical floorplans, identical interior and exterior selections, the identical chassis, specifications etc.

Whether you choose the Winnebago View or Navion name, with each you will experience the power and performance of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, providing exceptional fuel economy and a comfortable ride. The Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion include deluxe features including: the MBUX infotainment system with intelligent voice control, heated power cab seats, and advanced safety features, like the active braking assist and lane keeping assist. Inside, you will find the innovative SuperShell sleeper deck with premium thermal and acoustic insulation making the front bunk more comfortable than ever before.
For your next journey, choose upscale details and unparalleled comfort. Experience a luxurious ride with the Winnebago View or Winnebago Navion Class C diesel motorhome!

Lichtsinn RV’s Compact Crossing

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.

winnebago-boldt

 

“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.

The Winnebago Vita vs. Winnebago View

In the spirit of March Madness, we at Lichtsinn RV will be comparing various Winnebago motorhome models. Our next comparison in the March Motorhome Madness blog series is the ALL-NEW Winnebago Vita vs. the Winnebago View

Winnebago Vita 

The Winnebago Vita combines Winnebago’s legendary build quality with best-in-class features, a spacious interior and plenty of useful storage: the result is a compact and easy-driving package that’s perfect for solo travelers, couples or families. Designed specifically for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, the Vita’s two all-new floorplans boast the largest galley, the largest bed — even the largest holding tanks in the class. And with standard features like the strong, lightweight and quiet SuperShell™ Sleeper Deck, 200-watt solar energy system, roof-port wiring access, panoramic galley window and exclusive customizable storage cabinets, it’s clear the Vita is more than best in class — it’s simply in a class all its own.

Winnebago View 

The motorhome that started the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter revolution just keeps getting better. From the powerful and economical turbo-diesel engine to the elegantly appointed interior, the Winnebago View is the ultimate in efficient, luxurious RV travel for couples and families. The View’s four slideout-equipped floorplans offer a variety of sleeping and living-space choices. All feature swivel cab seats for added seating flexibility in the lounge, a powered patio awning, and a cabover bunk for added sleeping capacity. For those seeking the ultimate Sprinter-based Class C motorhome, the View has never looked better.

Both the View and Vita are powered by the tried and true Mercedes Benz powertrain, estimated to achieve 16 to 18 mpg highway:

1.  Mercedes Benz 3.0L turbo charged diesel

2.  325 lbs feet of torque or power

3.  188 hp

4.  5 speed automatic Tip Shift transmission with grade braking capability

5.  Adaptive ESP technology for superior ride and handling

6.  Three point safety belts

7.  Front seats that rotate to become integral lounge chairs with seat height boosters for a more residential feel.  Also include armrests, adjustable lumbar support, headrests, and reclines, swivel and slide

8.  Hydraulic four wheel ABS brakes

9.  Dual front airbags

10.  Factory installed 5,000 lb towing package with 7 blade bargeman wiring and 500 lb vertical tongue weight

The Winnebago View starts at around $137,000 while the Vita starts around $120,000. The View is loaded with more premium amenities including the light-weight Technoform cabinets, Corian countertops, Primera by UltraFabrics furniture coverings, and MCD roller shades.

Top 14 Questions from the Revel Webcast

Battle of the Winnebago Compact Coaches

 

Understanding Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity in the Winnebago Vita

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) is an important specification to understand before you buy your motorhome. The OCCC label is required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to ensure that buyers know that weight of passengers and cargo they can safely carry. Vehicle safety systems like tires, brakes and collision avoidance all may be compromised when the loaded motorhome weight exceeds the chassis weight rating.

The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all fresh water you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV.

Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000-lbs., while the Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800-lbs. of capacity.

The Vita Safely Carries More Compared to the Competitors – 

  • Up to 832-lbs. More than the Jayco Melbourne
  • Up to 1,084-lbs. More than the Thor Chateau
  • Up to 744-lbs. More than the Forest River Sunseeker
  • Up to 632-lb. More than the Forest River Forester
  • Up to 1,169-lb. More than the REV Renegade Villagio
  • Up to 741-lb. More than the Coachmen Prism Elite
