Winnebago Revel Convertibility… The Story

The Winnebago Revel has several convertible features, in this video we go over four of the convertible features in the all-new Winnebago Revel.

Dinette –

Not only does the Winnebago Revel have an expansive Power Lift Bed in the rear of the 4×4 RV, it also can convert the front Bench Seat/Dinette Table into a sleeping surface as well. The Winnebago Flex Bed System makes this possible. The resulting sleeping surface is 71″ in length and is 25″ wide at its widest point.

Exterior Table –

The exterior table is stored in a secure upright position while traveling. To release the table, you first release the locking latches. You will then want to grab the table leg that is stored behind the table and twist it into its position on the table, and then you lower the table down and you have the perfect outdoor eating area.

Cab Chairs –

Both the driver’s and the passenger’s chairs will swivel in their place for added seating in the Revel.

Movable Ladder –

By simply untwisting the locking mechanism on the ladder, you can then lift the ladder up and move it along both sides and the rear of the coach.

Insect Protection and Poisonous Plants

Article originally seen on Cleverhiker.com

Hiking Photo

Most of the time, insects in the wilderness are an annoyance rather than a danger. They will buzz around your ears, cause itchy red bumps, and may even bite through your clothing. But insects like ticks and mosquitoes can also be carriers of viruses and diseases, so it’s best to avoid them and protect yourself whenever possible. Fortunately there are a few common avoidance strategies and chemical products that will greatly reduce insect problems and will often lead to bite free trips.

One of the best ways to avoid bug annoyances is to avoid the bugs altogether. Fall, winter, and early spring are generally cooler times when fewer bugs will be active. You can also limit bug exposure by wearing long-sleeved clothing with a tight enough weave so insects like mosquitoes won’t be able to bite through it.

Consider bringing lightweight mesh bug clothing if you’re easily bothered by bugs and you prefer not to wear bug repellant. This is a cheap, light, and effective method. Avoid all perfumes and scents while you backpack. Even washing your clothing with fragrant fabric softeners and dryer sheets can attract insects. Keeping yourself clean will help too. Mosquitoes and other insects are drawn to the ammonia in your sweat and your odor.

To steer clear of mosquitoes, avoid hiking at dawn and dusk, when they will be most active, and try to camp away from standing water, which they need to reproduce. You can also camp in areas with a strong breeze to limit bug exposure and having small smoky campfires will help as well.

To avoid ticks, keep away from brushy areas and tall grass. Check your body for ticks when you stop for breaks. If you find a tick on your body, use tweezers to grasp it as close to the skin as possible. Pull away from your skin with even pressure. Don’t yank or twist. After removal, wash the area thoroughly. If you develop a rash or fever, see your doctor.

You should also know how allergic you are to bee stings. If you are allergic, it’s a good idea to bring an EpiPen and know how to use it. If you’re not allergic and you get stung, pull out the stinger with your fingers as quickly as possible, use a cold compress to ease the pain, and take antihistamines or pain killers as necessary.

Chemical Insect Treatments
Along with avoiding bugs, you can also use a couple of chemical treatments to greatly increase bug protection to almost to 100% effectiveness. DEET and Permethrin are generally considered the two most effective chemical treatments in bug protection.

DEET is a chemical that goes on exposed skin and Permethrin is a treatment that goes on your clothing. Both are very effective at protecting against a wide range of bugs. DEET is a strong treatment that should only be used on exposed skin in small doses.

Products with higher concentrations of DEET will lasts longer than those with small concentrations. But recent studies have shown that using a formula with 30-35% is about as effective as it gets. After that, a higher percentage of DEET won’t produce any additional protection.

DEET is effective against mosquitoes, ticks, no-see-ums, biting flies, spiders, bees, and other insects. DEET is very effective, but it’s also a very harsh chemical, so many people try to use it as little as possible. DEET can damage plastics, leather, and synthetic fabrics. Keep DEET away from your mouth, eyes, ears, and nose. Don’t spray it on any open wounds or rashes.

Be careful not to inhale it or spray it directly on your face and wash your hands thoroughly before eating food. It’s also a good idea to avoid multi-use products like DEET a sunscreen mix. Instead, put on your sunscreen, wait for it to absorb, and then apply DEET as necessary.

Permethrin is a treatment that should be used on your clothing and some hiking clothing even comes pre-treated. It quickly forms a strong bond with your clothing when it dries and isn’t absorbed easily by the skin.

A Permethrin spray treatment can last up to six weeks and will even last through multiple washes. Permethrin repels and kills ticks, chiggars, mites, and mosquitoes. Using a combination of Permethrin and DEET is about as close as you can get to total insect protection.

Poisonous Plants
Poisonous plants are another common annoyance that can be easily avoided if you know how to spot them in the backcountry. Make sure to know the poisonous plants living in the area that you plan to visit and know how to identify them before your trip.

In North America, poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac are the plants that you really need to watch out for. In Europe you may need to avoid stinging nettles and giant hogweed. It’s generally a good idea not to touch plants that you can’t identify, especially in winter when many plants don’t have identifying leaves but can still cause reactions.

Around 75% of North Americans are allergic to poison ivy, oak, and sumac. The severity of reactions can vary, including itchy redness, bumps, and blisters. To avoid having to deal with a painful reaction, know how to identify these three plants and don’t touch them.

Poison Ivy and Poison Oak can easily be spotted because of their leave formations. They always grow their leaves in groups of three. Regardless of if the plant is a shrub or a vine, poison ivy and oak will have two leaves attached to a stalk opposite each other and one leave jutting out on a short stem.

That’s where the saying “leaves of three, let it be” comes from. And it’s a very good rule to remember. The leaves of Poison oak and ivy are generally dark green and oily looking but they can change to orange and red in autumn.

Poison sumac much less common and is usually found in swampy areas in the form of a small tree or shrub. Its leaves grow in pairs of 6-12 with one single leaf at the end. The leaves are oval or oblong shape and form a fine tip at the end. They’re bright green throughout the summer and bright red in the fall.

Be careful not to burn any of these plants. The smoke can irritate your skin and enter your lungs to cause very severe reactions.

If you suspect that you have made contact with one of these plants, wash your skin as soon as possible. If you get to it quickly, you might be able to avoid a painful reaction. Also, if you’ve been in contact with a poisonous plant, the oil can remain on your clothing and footwear long after you encountered them. Make sure to wash all your clothes and footwear after you catch a case of poison ivy, oak, or sumac.

Most plants in the outdoors are completely harmless, but it’s important to be able to identify the ones that could cause you a painful and itchy reaction for several weeks. Remember, with insects and poisonous plants, a little knowledge and preparation will go a long way. Bite and itch free trips can be your new standard.

Winnebago Revel Fresh Water Drainage Tool… The Story

In the Winnebago Revel, an accessory that is nice to have if you are wanting to drain your fresh water tank is Lichtsinn RV’s fresh water drainage tool. In the Revel, if you want to drain the fresh water tank on the bottom side of the Revel there is a fitting that looks very similar to fittings you will find in residential applications. The fitting uses a square release to run it counterclockwise to open it and then the fresh water tank drains on the ground.

Winnebago Revel GVWR, OCCC, and GCWR… The Story

The Winnebago Revel 4×4 was designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, the all new Winnebago Revel takes a no-nonsense approach to adventure with a straightforward design and function-driven features. Taking full advantage of the proven 4×4 Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0-L turbo diesel puts 325 lbs. ft of torque through an on-demand 4WD system, complete with high and low range and hill descent mode for added off road capability.

WATCH RON LICHTSINN DISCUSS THE WINNEBAGO REVEL’S GVWR, OCCC, GCWR, AND MORE IN THIS VIDEO.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight Rating – This the weight of the Revel with only a full tank of diesel fuel. 7,190 lbs.

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) -This is the total weight of all cargo which includes your stuff, you, and the freshwater tanks full. 1,360 lbs.

The unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity = the vehicles’ gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). 8,550 lbs. 

Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) This is the maximum weight the Revel can be. This number is the unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity+ any towed vehicles. 13,550 lbs.

Towing Capabilities – The Revel’s maximum towing is found by subtracting the GVWR from the GCWR. You will want to keep this number in mind when you look at the trailer hitch weight rating. Several other RV manufacturers will put a trailer hitch that is rated higher than what the vehicle can actually tow. The Revel can tow 5,000 lbs. and has a 5,000 lbs. trailer hitch.  

Some additional weights you may see if you were to weigh your Revel is the gross axle weight rating for the front axle and the rear axle which are 4,101 lbs. and 5,360 lbs. respectively.

Top 14 Questions from the Revel Webcast

We recently held an interactive webcast on the all-new Winnebago Revel (you can re-watch it here) and here are the top 14 questions we had about the Revel.

TOP QUESTIONS FROM THE REVEL WEBCAST

  1. What are the options for cooling the Revel? The Revel comes standard with a second MaxxAir deluxe powered ventilator fan with rain cover. If you are planning on traveling to warmer climates where an air conditioner is required, you can upgrade the rear MaxxAir ventilator fan to a 13,500 BTU high-efficiency air conditioner. If you don’t upgrade to the air conditioner, the wiring is still there. You can see our Revel Story on the air conditioner power consumption here.
  2. Can the graphics be removed? The Revel comes standard with the exterior graphics package, but you can upgrade to the graphics delete package which doesn’t have any graphics. If you are looking to completely remove all graphics including the logo it is very easily done. See two Revels side-by-side with the different exterior packages here.
  3. What is the cargo carrying capacity? The Revel has a 1,200-lb. cargo carrying capacity with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,550-lbs.
  4. Does the Revel have a TV installed and if not, can one be installed? The Revel does not have a TV installed but you have a couple options for viewing media in the Revel. Lichtsinn RV’s service department can add a TV if you would like, or you can utilize the Ram Mounts that come standard in the Revel and mount an iPad or tablet above the bed or above dinette and stream media through the tablet. You can see our selection of Ram Mounts here.
  5. What are the benefits of an induction cooktop? The induction cooktop in the Winnebago Revel is run off the 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, so you will not have to utilize propane in the coach at all. The induction cooktop is cool to the touch and utilizes a magnetic field between the cooktop and the pan to heat food. Induction cooktops heat up quicker than propane cooktops.
  6. How many outlets can operate at one time with the inverter? The 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter is run to all 110-volt outlets but not to the roof air conditioner.
  7. Can the refrigerator door hinge be switched to the other side? Yes, the door can be switched to the other side, but it will leave a few holes.
  8. What size is the spare tire? The spare tire is mounted underneath the coach between the cross rails underneath the gear garage. The spare tire is a 16” steel wheel.
  9. Can you upgrade the chassis to lithium? Currently, lithium is not an option in the Revel, but because of the location of the AGM batteries, you could upgrade them at a future time.
  10. What are the measurements of the bed at different heights and can you make the front bigger by adding an additional mattress bed and swiveling front seats? The bed is on a motorized system that can lower and raise with the touch of a button. So, you will be able to use the bed at various heights while still having access to storage underneath. We have seen aftermarket accessories that allow you to use the front seats as an additional sleeping space. You can watch our Revel Story on the Flex Bed System here.
  11. How does the espar heater work? The diesel burner uses the main diesel fuel tank to heat a glycol mixture that is circulated thru heat exchangers for coach heat, and flow adjusted continuous hot water.  The Revel fresh water tank and drainage tank are below the floor which are held heavily insulated and both have a glycol line that runs along the edge of the tank to heat the tanks. You can learn even more about the espar heating system here.
  12. Was the suspension upgraded for people who want to get off the road? Everything we have heard from our Revel guests, who are out there getting off-the-beaten path, think the stock suspension is working well. We do have the ability to upgrade and add parts like sumo springs, but we don’t think it is really necessary from everything we have heard.
  13. What is the fresh water tank drain tool and where can I get one? To making drain the freshwater tank in the Revel easier, we’ve created a custom tool that allows you to “dry” winterize your Revel. You can order it here.
  14. What additional technology (like wifi boosters) can I add? We do a lot of technology additions to coaches including adding wifi boosters and cell phone boosters. Wifi boosters amplifies the wifi signal at campgrounds or other locations with open wifi. Cell phone 4G boosters enhance your incoming and outgoing phone signal and can amplify your 4G and 3G LTE signal up to 32 times.
