12 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is Better than the Thor Sequence

 Winnebago’s Class B Van Lineup: Winnebago Solis, Travato, Revel and Boldt 

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is a Great RV

12 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is BETTER than the Thor Sequence

Our first reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the floorplan offerings in the Winnebago Travato. The Travato comes in the 59K floorplan – offering a twin bed configuration with a spacious rear bath/shower area and swivel cab seats that expand your living space. This floorplan configuration is also available in the Pure3 Lithium-Powered 59KL. The Travato 59G floorplan offers exceptional flexibility and sleeping for four with the Flex Bed System near the cab and a large corner bed that flips up to make room for bikes or other large items. The Thor Sequence offers two floorplans that ONLY Sleep 2. Thor also DID NOT consider the usability of the swiveling cab seats. Swiveling cab seats are an integral part of the living area in Class B Campervans, and in both the Sequence 20L and 20K floorplans the driver’s seat is totally unusable when swiveled. In the 20K the drivers’ seat is obstructed by the sofa/sleeper and in the 20L it is obstructed by the galley.

WATCH OUR VIDEO ON THE 12 REASONS WHY THE WINNEBAGO TRAVATO IS BETTER THAN THE THOR SEQUENCE HERE

Winnebago understands Class B Van owners’ needs better than Thor. Through continued voice-of-customer research and Class B owners’ events, Winnebago has taken the time to understand how van owners use their RVs. Which is why all Travato floorplans are configured to maximize the cab area for living space.

Our second reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the windows and ventilation in the Winnebago Travato. There are few features in a campervan that are more important than windows and ventilation. Van owners enjoy the ability to camp in off-the-grid locations where they can soak in picturesque outdoor scenery. Often that requires boondocking with limited access to hookups, so they require windows and doors that can open to let in the breeze. Thor did not take those needs into consideration when they developed the Sequence. The sequence has ONE SMALL LITTLE window that opens, and the older-style screen door. The Travato features several awning-style Remi Cab Windows that feature integrated sliding, pleated shades, and a rear insect screen. New for this year, the Travato also features an innovative, Rolef Side Screen Door that is made to take a beating while still providing reliable ventilation and insect protection. The Rolef screen door is made of a similar highly durable fabric as a high-end tent. When zipped owners simply open the magnetic closure to enter or exit and it snaps back into place. In addition to superior ventilation, Winnebago added the Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ Ultra-Quiet Air Conditioner into the Travato. The Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ is a 13,500 BTU air conditioner that is 4-6 decibels quieter than previous models. While this may not sound like much, decibels are measured in a logarithmic scale rather than a linear scale. The decibel logarithmic scale increases by powers of ten so for every increase of 10 dB on the scale is equivalent to a 10-fold increase in sound intensity. So… an air conditioner that is 4-6 decibels quieter is a significant improvement. The Thor Sequence has a 11,000-BTU traditional air conditioner that is louder and less powerful than the Travatos.

Our third reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the additional, upgraded automotive-grade insulation Winnebago added to the Travato. In the new model year, Winnebago added additional automotive-grade, block foam insulation to the roof and the sidewalls. This insulation is similar to the insulation in the four-season Winnebago Boldt and Revel. Additional insulation allows for improved temperature control and reducing heat or cool air loss. It also assists with road noise reduction and campground ambient sound reduction. The Travato also has blackout cassette shades that offer additional thermal protection. The Sequence doesn’t have the same highly engineered, automotive-grade insulation as the Travato or blackout cassette shades.

Our fourth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Winnebago Travato’s Sumo Springs. Winnebago is the market share leader in campervans, because they listen and value their owners needs. SumoSprings have been a fan favorite of Travato owners for several years, and now they are offered as a standard feature. SumoSprings® are a patented suspension product designed to enhance load carrying ability, stabilize sway, and improve overall driver control and ride comfort. They are maintenance free and are manufactured from proprietary closed micro-cellular urethane providing a smooth and progressive spring rate. The Thor Sequence doesn’t offer any feature – standard or optional like this.

Our fifth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Winnebago Travato’s Pure3 Energy Management System option in the Winnebago Travato. Campervan owners are looking for lithium power options in their vans, and Winnebago understands those owners. That is why Winnebago introduced the best-in-class Pure3 Energy Management System from Volta Power Systems in the Travato 59KL and 59GL floorplans. The Pure3 system is built with advanced engineering and a simple user interface so you can have confidence and peace of mind as you travel down the road. The 48V automotive-grade lithium energy storage pack provides up to 8,700-watt hours of energy, and 30-Amp whole coach electricity using a 3,600-watt inverter. One of the best parts of this hassle-free system is that it operates on the push of a button. With the same automotive-grade technology used in hybrid vehicles and EV applications, this advanced lithium energy system provides better value, ease of use, and confidence as you travel, live, work, and play. The Thor Sequence doesn’t offer owners a lithium option AT ALL.

Our sixth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Winnebago Travato’s unique storage solutions including Winnebago Exclusive Ram Mounts and Anything Keepers. Based on the success of the Ram Mounts in the Revel, Winnebago added the Ram Mounts Tough Track mounts to the Winnebago Travato. Ram Mounts are electronic device mounting solutions that are designed around an interchangeable ball and socket system that offer users’ devices shock and vibration protection. Winnebago incorporated Ram Mounts Tough Track Mounts throughout the Travato to offer owners the flexibility to safely mount their phones, laptops, or tablets in various locations within the Travato. Winnebago Exclusive – Anything Keeper Drop Down Baskets were also added to above the beds in the Travato to provide owners a place to keep their phones and other small items. Winnebago continues to find unique solutions to maximize the storage inside their Class B campervans.

Our seventh reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the larger sized solar power system. Winnebago realizes that van owners want all the solar power they can get on their vans, and has continued to increase the standard solar panels on their vans. The Winnebago Travato now offers 230-watts of Solar power STANDARD with a junction box and plugs for additional solar panels. The Thor Sequence only has 180-watts of solar and it doesn’t appear to have additional ports for portable solar panels.

Our eighth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Travato’s optional Summit Rack System with Movable Ladder. Winnebago offers an optional all metal roof rack with a movable ladder that attaches onto the roof rack for increased stability and safety when owners are using it. The Thor Sequence uses a Thule ladder that you are just supposed to lean against your RV – and climb up it. This ladder is not nearly as secure or safe as the Summit ladder system in the Winnebago Travato.

Our ninth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Travatos’ superior exterior features. Winnebago understands that a functional outdoor living space is a necessity for Class B campervans owners. The travato has excellent undercarriage lighting and a 13-foot armless powered patio awning with a wind sensor. The Thor Sequence does not have undercarriage lighting and it has an awning with an arm that attaches to the side of the van. The arm on the awning limits the outdoor space around the entrance, and users will find themselves running into or bumping their heads on the arm. The Winnebago Travato also offers Deluxe Feature Full Body Premium Automotive Paint on the entire exterior while the Sequence has plastic cladding on the entire front and rear of the coach.

Our tenth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Winnebago’s premium interior features including Corian countertops and Ultraleather furniture coverings. The Travato offers UltraLeather furniture coverings. Ultraleather gives you the softness, comfort, and luxury that is more durable than leather and incredibly easy to clean. Made with proprietary technology that combines four material layers including PVC-free polycarbonates, it has been tested and proven to surpass competitive fabrics for integrity and durability. Plus, Ultraleather offers superior thermal comfort—creating a comfortable, neutral body temperature regardless of the setting. The Thor Sequence has cheaper leatherette furniture coverings that will not stand up to the wear and tear of RVing like the Ultraleather coverings. The Travato features solid-surface Corian countertops while the Sequence uses a cheap knock-off. Corian countertops are non-porous so they are very easy to clean and are extremely durable.

Our eleventh reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Winnebago’s community of owners. The Winnie B’s – Winnebago’s group of Class B-van owners – regularly has meetups sponsored by Winnebago that build an amazing sense of community around products like the Travato. The Winnie B’s recently had a meetup of nearly 100 vans. During the Meetup they enjoyed leisurely activities like bicycle rides and brewery visits, and they were able to have one-on-one discussions with members of the Winnebago Product Development team and Winnebago employees that built the Travatos they lived in. As we previously mentioned, Winnebago utilizes these events to learn more about how owners use their Travatos so they can manufacture products that best help their owners explore the outdoor lifestyle.

Our twelfth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Winnebago’s experience and innovation within the Class B and Campervan product lines. Winnebago has been at the forefront of the campervan and compact coach movement since THE 1980s – with the LaSharo and Rialta. 2019 is the first year Thor has “ventured” into the Class B van market with a ProMaster-based While Winnebago has been building the Travato for over 6 years, while continuing to innovate its features and floorplans to best meet owners’ needs. Winnebago was the first to bring features like the Froli Deluxe Sleep System, the Truma Combi Eco Plus Heating System, and Movable Ladders and Luggage racks to the Class B market. WINNEBAGO HAS RELIED ON INNOVATION NOT IMITATION to offer owners a product that enables extraordinary experiences as they travel, live, work in play in their Winnebago Travato.

  1. What is the difference between the two runs of National Park Foundation Edition Travatos? The only difference in the two runs is the deluxe exterior graphics options. In the first run, there was Copper Canyon and Amber Yellow and in the current run there is Martini Green and Light Gray. All of the other specifications and features are exactly the same. 
  2. Will there be more than 2 runs of these? We have been told by Winnebago there will not be another run of the NPF Travatos. 
  3. Does the Portable Solar Panel have a Special Storage Location? There is not a dedicated storage location for the portable solar panel. It can be stored wherever you would like it – the panel is extremely light weight. 
  4. Can the additional solar panel be added to the roof? The additional solar panel is portable and intended to be used with the portable solar port on the side of the van. 
  5. Will the portable solar panel fit above the upper storage area in the cab? We tested this and it works perfectly to store the panel. Thank you to the viewer for the suggestion. 
  6. What are the Sumo Springs? SumoSprings have been a fan favorite of Travato owners for several years, and now they are offered as a standard feature. SumoSprings are a patented suspension product designed to enhance load carrying ability, stabilize sway, and improve overall driver control and ride comfort. They are maintenance free and are manufactured from proprietary closed micro-cellular urethane providing a smooth and progressive spring rate.

  8. Does Lichtsinn RV have photos/videos available of the new exterior? Yes, we have complete photos and video available of the new exterior and the interior on the National Park Foundation Travato. You can see the photos/videos of the Travato 59KL here and the Travato 59GL here

Using the Volta Power Systems Pure3 Lithium Energy System in Extreme Conditions

Pure3 Energy Management System Power Calculator

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is a Great RV!

Reason #1 – Floorplan Selection

Winnebago gives you choices to customize the perfect Travato for your needs. The Winnebago Travato is available in two floorplans – the 59G is an extremely flexible floorplan with a front dinette area, large rear corner bed that folds up to make room for bikes or other large items and a corner bath. The 59K is a very open floorplan for a B-van. It boasts two twin beds, that also function as a seating area, that configure into cross coach sleeping, a spacious rear bath/shower area, and cab seats that swivel to become an integral part of the living space. Both the 59K and 59G are available in the lithium Travato and are identified as the KL and the GL.

Reason #2 – Best-in-Class Pure3 Energy Management System

The Pure3 Energy Management System comes standard in the Travato 59GL and 59KL. This best-in-class system is U.S. built in partnership with Volta Power Systems, helping RVers “cut the cord.” Pure3 is built with advanced engineering and a simple user interface so you can have confidence and peace of mind as you travel down the road. The 48V automotive-grade lithium energy storage pack provides up to 8,700-watt hours of energy, and powers all coach appliances. Designed for reliability, the Pure3 system makes replenishing power fast, simple, and available through multiple charging options. The 58V alternator, although compact in size, packs a punch and quickly charges the pack as you drive. Pulling off for the night is stress-free with this advanced lithium system that meets all your power needs without requiring power hookups or the use of a generator.

This fully integrated system includes a powerful 3,600-watt pure sine inverter that offers 30 amps. of power at any time, powering air conditioning and appliances wherever you go. The best part of this hassle-free system is that it operates on the push of a button and a simple analog gauge that tells you how much energy remains. With the same automotive-grade technology used in hybrid vehicles and EV applications, this newly advanced lithium energy system provides better value, ease of use, and confidence as you travel, live, work, and play.

Reason #3 – Premium Interior Materials

The Travato comes standard with solid surface Corian countertops. Corian countertops are extremely durable and will survive the daily wear and tear of RVing. Corian has a non-porous surface that prevents dirt and stains from penetrating the material therefor cleaning is a breeze. Underneath the Corian countertops are the lightweight and Technoform cabinetry. Technoform cabinetry is Italian-designed, curved cabinetry that is extremely lightweight. The Travato has UltraLeather from UltraFabrics in the 59G. UltraLeather gives you the softness, comfort and luxury that is more durable than leather and extremely easy to clean. UltraLeather has been tested and proven to surpass competitive fabrics for integrity and durability.

Reason #4 – Features RVers Love

For the outdoor lover, the Travato comes with an armless powered patio awning with LED lights, an exterior speaker system, and an optional bike rack and luggage rack with movable ladder. And after a long, adventurous day outside you can wash your gear off with the exterior wash station with hot and cold water. Solar Power is a hot topic in the Van Life community and Winnebago did not ignore the demand in the Travato. The Travato now has (2) 100-watt solar panels with a junction box and plugs for additional panels standard.

Top Questions on the Lithium-Powered Travato

Recently, we covered the Winnebago Travato 59GL and 59KL with the Pure3 Energy Management System in our live interactive webcast. We collected the top questions we received in that webcast. You can WATCH OUR WEBCAST HERE on the Winnebago Travato 59GL and 59KL. We also covered the 2019 model year changes in the 59G and 59K and introduced the Pure3 Energy Management System in a webcast earlier this year – WATCH IT HERE.

Questions from the Winnebago Travato Webcast

What is the difference in operation between the Pure3 system vs. the Coachmen lithium system?

The Pure3 system is considerably easier to operate – it is a one button operation that is run off one inverter. The coachmen has several different gauges to operate the system. Read our blog post on the Pure3 Energy Management vs. the Coachmen Galleria lithium system here.

Does the inverter need to be on to run 12-V appliances in the Travato 59KL and 59GL?

No the inverter does not need to be on. The inverter is only required to be on when you are wanting to power 120-volt electronics, like the air conditioner, without shore power.

How do you charge the Pure3 System in the Travato 59KL and 59GL?

  • Underhood generator – The Pure3 Energy Pack can also be charged through the underhood generator or second alternator. The Travato’s dedicated 58-volt alternator is twice as powerful as the competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris. It also allows you to completely recharge your battery in approximately 1.4 hours allowing you to get back on the road and off-the-grid.
  • Shoreline – Like other RVs, the Pure3 Energy Pack can be charged off shoreline power or when it is hooked up to power at a campsite. However, unlike most other RVs, the Travato 59KL and 59GL are equipped with a 3600-watt pure sine wave inverter bringing 30 amps of power wherever you go.
  • Solar Package – The Pure3 Energy Pack can be charged by the solar power system. The Travato 59KL and 59GL’s MPPT solar controller provides best-in-class solar absorption, up to 30% better than competitors, giving you more off-the-grid performance. The Travato comes standard with 200-watts with ports to plug in additional panels.

What mode charges the Travato 59KL and 59GL the fastest?

The underhood generator. The Travato’s dedicated 58-volt alternator, or under hood generator, is twice as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris and the auto-start and high-idle control significantly extends air conditioner run time.

How long can you run the AC off the Pure3?

6-8 hours if you are running several systems like the refrigerator and the Truma Combi at the same time.

What are the considerations for cold weather operation?

The lithium battery pack is in a sealed and insulated compartment. Temperatures in the compartment are regulated by the interior temperature of the motorhome.  A good rule of thumb is that if you as the coach owner are comfortable inside, so is your Pure3 lithium pack. The Travato’s Volta Power Systems Pure3 Lithium Energy Pack is sealed in a battery compartment that is heated and cooled with an environmental fan:

  • Fan will turn on at 59°F (Heat Mode) or 110°F (Cool Mode).
  • Fan will turn off at 68°F (Heat Mode) or 90°F (Cool Mode).

The Pure3 pack is discharged as required by the load and should only be used around the following conditions:

  • High Temperature Limit: 135°F
  • Low Temperature Limit: -4°F.

What is the lifespan of the batteries?

The expected useful life of the batteries is 10 years and they are covered by an industry-leading 8 year warranty.

Is the vehicle a true 4 season RV?

Yes. The water lines are inside the coach along with the battery pack that is insulated and heated by the Truma Combi Eco Plus advanced climate control system providing coach heat and quick hot water recovery with LP and electrical heating using 1,750 watts of heating elements

Has Winnebago road tested the Travato 59KL and 59GL?

Absolutely. There is an employee at Winnebago that has put on over 10,000 miles and has yet to charge the system with shore power. Winnebago also tested the location of the underhood generator to ensure users don’t have issues with ground clearance causing damage to the underhood generator.

Currently, Lichtsinn RV has in-stock 2019 Travato 59K, 59G, 59KL and 59GL models. You can see our Travato inventory here.

Explore the National Parks in the National Park Foundation Travato

For more than six decades, Winnebago Industries has created products that enable customers to explore America’s national parks. Winnebago Industries, Inc., a leading outdoor lifestyle product manufacturer, strengthened that connection by announcing a multi-year partnership with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, in support of the Find Your Park Movement. This public awareness campaign inspires people of all backgrounds and abilities to discover and share their own unique connections to America’s national parks.

National Park Foundation Travato

 

To launch the partnership, Winnebago is proud to announce the debut of a limited-edition National Park Foundation Travato revealed for the first time at RVX: The RV Experience, a recreation vehicle industry trade show in Salt Lake City, Utah. The design teams at Winnebago created a new Travato design, inspired by the National Park Foundation, featuring exclusive graphics and the Pure3 Energy Management System that has a larger lithium battery pack than the traditional Travato KL and GL with the Pure3 Energy Management System offering users 11,600 watt-hours of power. The Travato also has upgraded wheels and tires to allow you to get off the beaten path, the popular Ram Mounts (similar to those featured in the Winnebago Revel) and Sumo Springs, a popular aftermarket addition to Travatos, all are now standard features. The National Park Travato now has a new air conditioner that is up to 8 decibels quieter than previous models, which will come in handy in National Parks that have noise and generator ordinances.  Following RVX, James and Stef Adinaro of the Fit RV, will travel in a new limited-edition National Park Foundation Travato to share stories from the road.

“One of our goals through this partnership is to inspire RVers and other adventurers to visit national parks that are lesser known,” said Winnebago product manager Russ Garfin. “The Travato with the Pure3 Energy system is the perfect vehicle to do just that with its ability to disconnect from shore power for longer periods of time and go where most RVers can’t.”

Winnebago committed to donating a portion of the sales of the National Park Foundation Travatos back to the National Park Foundation. Winnebago Industries President and CEO Michael Happe said,“We firmly believe that America’s national parks offer unparalleled opportunities to experience the beauty of nature and the depth of our shared heritage at some of the most scenic and historic locations in the United States. It is an honor to support the work of the National Park Foundation in pursuit of our shared goal, to connect more people with transformative outdoor experiences.”

Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed with a 140 cu. ft. gear garage below. This allows for a 49 x 79 inch cross coach sleeping area.  A full galley, including a 2.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, makes meal prep a breeze, while the all in one bath and gear closet boasts a cassette style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank.

Welded aluminum cabinet face frames, dual pane windows with insulated shades, snap in screens for fresh air circulation, and an available roof mounted AC system all contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability.
