What are the key differences between Class A Gas and Diesel?
- Power – The Forza has 700-lbs. ft. of torque or power which is 52% more torque than the most powerful gas chassis. Increased power allows for an increased cargo carrying capacity.
- Ride – In Class A Diesel coaches, like the Forza, the increased power provides a smoother ride for the driver and passengers compared to a Class A Gas motorhome.
- Sound – In Class A Diesel coaches, like the Forza, the diesel engine is situated in the rear of the coach compared to Class A Gas coaches that have the engine right underneath the cab area. The engine howl in the Class A gas has been decreased in the last few years, but there is a noise compared to the Class A Diesel.
What is the V-Ride and is it available in the Winnebago Forza?
Yes, the Winnebago Forza features the Freightliner V-Ride. The V-Ride is the first-ever single axle suspension rated at 24,000 pounds, V-Ride is designed for luxury motorhome owners who want the ability to carry more gear, the freedom to equip their interiors with premium amenities, and a comfortable, confident driving experience. The V-Ride features:
- Increased towing capacity
- Quik-Align – allowing for easy axle alignment without the use of shims
- V-rod connection dissipates suspension forces, reducing stress for greater durability and longevity
- U-Shaped Assembly – The transverse beam integrated with the trailing arm form a single-piece U-shaped assembly – enhancing stability at all speeds
- Consistent Handling – The V-rod connection and U-shaped assembly design result in superior roll stability and more predictable handling in all road conditions, giving motorhome owners a confident driving experience
- Smooth Ride – Large volumetric air springs and premium Sachs shocks deliver the smoothest ride available in a motorhome
Does the Forza have engine brakes or exhaust brakes?
The RV industry only utilizes exhaust brakes This braking system actually closes down the exhaust path and it stops the gases from being eliminated on the exhaust pipe. As a result, back-pressure is built in the manifold and in the cylinders, making the engine work backwards and subsequently slowing down the vehicle.
What is the suggested engine break-in period for a Diesel motorhome?
The suggested engine break-in period includes no towing for first thousand miles and to drive varying speeds in that first thousand miles. This allows for the cylinders to seat themselves in a new power train. This period does differ than how delivery drivers will transport your new Winnebago to your dealer and you can learn more about that here.
What is the Winnebago SuperStructure and does the Winnebago Forza have it?
From Winnebago’s smallest Class C all the way up to a Grand Tour, all Winnebago RVs are built to Winnebago’s legendary SuperStructure Construction design. Winnebago’s SuperStructure design includes – interlocking joints, laser cut tubing, a fiberglass roof (with the exception of Intent, Outlook, Porto and Vita), Thermo-Panel sidewalls, embedded steel, structural aluminum framework, and E-Coated steel components.
Does the Forza have Freightliner’s New Opti-View Dash?
Yes, the Forza does have the Freightliner Opti-View Dash. The Opti-View dash takes the RV driving experience into the future with the industry’s first fully integrated, all-digital LCD instrument cluster. Designed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, OptiView is inspired by the current S-Class dash. This user-friendly system features a bright, anti-glare display, touch screen radio and input operation, camera system views and Bluetooth steering wheel controls. The Opti-View Dash features:

What features in the Forza can’t be powered off batteries?
The Forza features a 2,000-watt inverter/charger with a remote panel and a coach battery disconnect system. The inverter works to switch 12-V power off the Forza’s RV batteries to 110-V electrical power. In the Forza, all the outlets and appliances with the exception of the air conditioner, washer, dryer and fireplace are powered off the inverter.
