Compressor vs. Absorption Refrigerators in the Winnebago Travato

When you are packing for your next RV roadtrip…what is one of the first things you do? If you are like us…you cool down and then “overfill” the refrigerator.

RV refrigerators are available in two styles, either a compressor-powered refrigerator or an absorption refrigerator. Compressor-powered refrigerators sometimes referred to as two-way refrigerators use a small compressor unit to cool the refrigerator. Often they have two ways of powering the compressor either through 12-volt battery power or 110-volt power, hence the name two way refrigerator. The other option when looking at portable refrigerators are absorption-refrigerators. Absorption refrigerators, sometimes called three-way refrigerators, rely on a gas flow heat exchange system located in the back of the refrigerator to extract heat from the refrigerator and cool the internal temperature. Absorption refrigerators have three means of being powered; 12-volt battery power, 110-volt battery power, and LPG gas.

The Winnebago Travato is equipped with a 12-volt compressor-driven refrigerator/freezer. The Travato 59K and 59KL are equipped with a single door 4.3 cu. ft. refrigerator while the Travato 59G and 59GL floorplans are equipped  with a two-door 6.0 cu. ft. compressor-driven refrigerator.

Winnebago Travato Compressor-Driven Refrigerator

WATCH THIS VIDEO TO COMPARE COMPRESSOR REFRIGERATORS VS. ABSORPTION REFRIGERATORS

Let’s look at the pros and cons of compressor refrigerators and absorption refrigerators –

Compressor Refrigerators – 

Pros: 

  • Compressor refrigerators are able to chill to lower temperatures and cool more consistently than absorption refrigerators regardless of the outside ambient temperature, due to the more powerful compressor motor.
  • Most compressor refrigerators can double as freezers because of the powerful compressor motor.
  • Compressor refrigerators work well in uneven terrain, in fact most compressor refrigerators will operate just as well regardless of being flat or on an incline.
  • Compressor refrigerators are built with 12-volt power in mind, which means they run very efficiently on battery power compared to the absorption refrigerators.

Cons: 

  • Though modern refrigerators are extremely quiet, there is still some audible noise when the compressor is running, similar to that of your standard home refrigerator.
  • May need solar to assist in powering the batteries which ultimately power the refrigerator.

Absorption Refrigerators –

Pros: 

  • Absorption refrigerators can run for an extended period of time because they rely on the gas flow exchange system rather than 12-volt system.
  • You will not need to spend additional money on batteries and charging systems like solar power to run.
  • The heat exchange system of cooling means the refrigerator runs completely silent.

Cons: 

  • Due to the gas flow exchange system, an absorption refrigerator should remain level in order to function efficiently
  • Absorption refrigerators are run mostly on gas, so users will need to ensure they have good ventilation.
  • Absorption refrigerators tend to be inefficient when running on 12-volt power and will drain the batteries much quicker than a compressor refrigerator.
  • Because absorption refrigerators tend to be more heavily affected by ambient temperatures, they are usually only able to bring internal temperatures down to a certain level below the ambient rather than being able to achieve the set specific temperature like the compressor refrigerators.

Era floorplans are equipped with optional on-demand 4WD to expand the possibilities allowing you to tackle off-roading with ease. The Era features modern comfort with it’s sumptuous Ultraleather furnishings. Whether you are dining, working or just relaxing, the movable table and swivel cab seats in the Era provide convertibility that is as open-ended as your plans.

The reliable Truma Combi Eco Plus heating in the Era lets you flex between gas and electric modes, and the new Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ A/C System stays ultra-quiet while directional vents send cool air throughout the coach.

Winnebago Era Weight Ratings

Once you have your Winnebago Era, it’s time to get ready to pack for your first trip. Before you do so, it is important to know the following weight ratings to ensure you do not “overfill” your new RV.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight Rating – This the weight of the Winnebago Era with only a full tank of fuel. This rating may vary based on optional content. It will be approximately 9,146 – 9,453 lbs.

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) -This is the total weight of all cargo which includes all of your gear, you, and the freshwater tanks full. This is approximately *1,577-1,884 lbs. on the Winnebago Era and will vary by optional content. *To find the exact OCCC of your Era, see the orange sticker inside the passenger side door.

The unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity = the Era’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). 11,030 lbs. 

Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) – This is the absolute maximum weight of the  Winnebago Era + any trailer or vehicle towed behind it. GCWR is the unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity+ any towed vehicles (GVWR + any towed vehicles. )15,250 lbs.

Towing Capabilities – The Era has a factory installed 5,000 lb. tow package. However, keep in mind if your RV is fully loaded, using all of your OCCC, up to a full GVWR of 11,000 lbs. that you are still limited to the GCWR of 15,250 lbs. So, your trailer or towed vehicle should not exceed 4,220 lbs. (GCWR 15,250 – GVWR 11,030.)  

Some additional weights you may see if you were to weigh your Era are the gross axle weight rating for the front axle and the rear axle which are 4,410 lbs. and 7,720 lbs. respectively.

With the efficiency of a camper van coupled with the efficiencies of a diesel RV and the optional enhanced capability of 4WD, the Era Class B Diesel motorhome from Winnebago will allow you to tour in style and camp in comfort.

Winnebago Sprinter RV Toilet 101

We’ve all traveled.  And when traveling, you’re bound to need to use the restroom at some point during your trip. And let’s face it, public bathrooms are sometimes, actually more often than not, less than desirable.

The good news is, when traveling by a  Sprinter Chassis RV you’ll never again need to enter an public bathroom.   It’s all right there for you in your RV.  You’ve earned the luxury of having your own private space to go.   The security of knowing this will come to a clean, safe and successful end.

The Winnebago Motorhomes built on the Sprinter Chassis: The Revel,  Boldt, Era and the View/Navion Series all have bathrooms, but that’s where the similarity ends.

Winnebago Sprinter Toilets
Winnebago Revel Toilet

The Revel was the first Winnebago RV to utilize a cassette toilet.  A cassette toilet pairs the comfort of a permanent toilet with the convenience of a portable black tank.  You can even carry a spare if you want to stay off-grid longer.

The convenience of the “mobile”  5-gallon cassette allows you to easily transport the tank to empty its contents at gas stations, campground dump stations or any other public restroom.

Simply remove the cassette from the locking side compartment, unlatch the handle and roll it to the dumping station.  Nice and easy.  No mess.

Revel Cassette Toilet

The other Winnebago Sprinter Chassis motorhome models use traditional black waste storage tanks.  They are mounted under the RV and you use a sewer hose to connect them to dump station facilities.

In the Winnebago Boldt 70BL you can store up to 24 gallons of black tank waste and the Boldt 70KL floorplan holds up to 16 gallons.  The freshwater, grey and black holding tanks in the Boldt are double insulated tanks with heating pads to ensure they don’t freeze so you can use the Boldt (including the toilet) in colder weather.

The Winnebago Era is about the same size as the Boldt but the black water storage tanks are not as large.  The Era 70A holds 8 gallons, the 70B and 70X floorplans offer 9 gallons black waste tank storage capacity.

These Class B Sprinter RVs: Winnebago Boldt, Winnebago Era and the Winnebago Revel, each have bathrooms that are wet baths.  This means the toilet is located in your shower area/room.  That also means your toilet always stays clean.   There’s even a handy sprayer to make sure of it! (Wouldn’t it be nice if your toilet at home had that?)

Winnebago Sprinter Toilets
Winnebago View 24J Toilet and Sprayer

The Winnebago View/Navion bathrooms are full sized bathrooms, with the toilet located separately from the shower as you would find in a residential house.

All Winnebago View/Navion floorplans hold an ample 41 gallons of black waste.

The View/Navion 24J and 24V offer the cool comfort of a porcelain toilet while the 24D has a composite toilet.

While we prefer you not actually “test out” the RV toilets at the dealership, it is certainly important to know what you are getting into when purchasing a Sprinter Chassis RV.  Know you’re Sprinter RV toilet options. They are much better than a public bathroom!
