An Overview of the Maxum Chassis and Freightliner V-Ride

The perfect diesel-pusher experience begins starts with a solid base, and Winnebago’s exclusive Maxum Chassis provides the ultimate framework for an unsurpassed ride in a Class A Diesel motorhome. Winnebago’s engineers worked closely with Freightliner Custom Chassis – the proven leader in diesel motorhome chassis – to create the Maxum Chassis: a stronger, better performing chassis. The Maxum Chassis sets the standard for diesel-pusher chassis with its lowered-rail frame providing better handling, a smoother ride, and incredible strength. In fact, the Maxum Chassis is seven times stronger than a raised-rail chassis which minimizes chassis flex and twisting. To top it off, the Maxum Chassis’ lowered-rail design increases the basement storage height allowing for pass-thru storage with room for slideout trays.

In conjunction with the exclusive Maxum Chassis, Winnebago offers Freightliner Custom Chassis’ V-Ride single axle suspension rated at 24,000-lbs. Freightliner Custom Chassis 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.Freightliner Custom Chassis V Ride

  • 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

FCCC V-Ride vs. the Competition –

FCCC has the Best Class A Ride

  • FCCC has a custom-built drive suspension by FCCC-engineering
  • Competition has an off-the-shelf truck suspension with swiveling bushing

Stability for All

  • FCCC suspensions are rated from 17,500 to 24,000 lbs. and designed exclusively for RV usage
  • Competition uses a generic truck/bus axle configuration

Driver Control

  • FCCC’s V-Ride is the only suspension that controls the weight of a top-heavy vehicle – giving control and confidence to the owner for the life of the coach.
  • Competition is still using technology that FCCC stopped using in 1999.

Top Questions from the Winnebago Forza Webcast

In a recent webcast, Ron Lichtsinn reviewed the 2019 Winnebago Forza. We compiled a list of our top asked questions. Check them out below –

In our July webcast, Ron Lichtsinn discusses the 2019 Winnebago Forza Diesel Pusher – Watch it here.

What floorplans are available in the Winnebago Forza?

The Winnebago Forza is available in four floorplans – the 34T, 36G, 38F, and 38W. The Forza 34T comes with dual slideouts, a mid-coach bath, RestEasy Loveseat and BenchMark Dinette make the 34T perfect for couples or small families. The Forza 36G features triple slideouts, lots of interior storage, elegant and spacious living areas highlight the versatile 36G floorplan. The 38W is the newest Forza floorplan offering, choose from a queen or king walkaround bed, enjoy a double sink in the master bathroom, and relax on the TrueComfort+ Sofa. The largest Forza floorplan, the 38W includes two full baths, the bunk bed/wardrobe system, a private master suite, and large living spaces make the 38W ideal for larger families or anyone who enjoys a little extra elbow room.

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:

  • Bluetooth connectivity – iOS and Android compatible
  • Fully integrated with 360° camera system
  • Touch screen controls, intuitive menu
  • Auxiliary, USB and Bluetooth inputs
  • Multimedia system for on-demand video playback capability (only engages when vehicle is not in motion)
  • Easy-to-read interface with anti-glare display, bright graphics, and clear fonts, colors and menu structure

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.

What is the warranty on the Winnebago Forza? 

while some other RV manufacturers, like Tiffin are turning coaches older than 4 years away from their service facilities, Winnebago will be there for you, today, tomorrow and for years to come.  The Winnebago Carefree Diesel Living Warranty extends the Winnebago warranty on our diesel pusher lineup —  all built on Freightliner chassis — to an industry-leading 3 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.  Winnebago has always stood behind its products, and for anyone who is concerned about service, this program clearly demonstrates the confidence we have in our diesel pusher lineup!

Open House: RV Industry Gets “Smart”

If there is an overriding theme at this year’s RV Open House in Elkhart, Indiana, this week, it is technology. The smart RV is no longer talk of the future; the smart RV has arrived.

“The industry is definitely moving in the direction of the smart RV,” states Sam Jefson, public relations specialist for Winnebago Industries, which introduced ASA Electronics’ iN-Command system on some of its 2019 offerings. With the iN-Command system, RVers can control RV functions, such as climate control, slide outs, awnings and lights, as well as monitor batteries, holding tanks and auxiliary fuel, from an app on their smart phones.

Jefson says Winnebago has rolled out the technology with its travel trailers, which tend to be used by a very tech-savvy demographic, but adds he fully expects all units to eventually be similarly equipped.

Winegard is making tech headlines as well as more OEMs prewire their units for Winegard ConnecT 2.0. Some companies are also making this technology standard on their rigs.

WATCH OUR LIVE WEBCAST ON CELLULAR AND WIFI BOOSTERS FEATURING THE WINEGARD CONNECT 2.0 WIFI EXTENEDER HERE.

Designed specifically for the mobile environment, the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 WiFi Extender + 4G LTE is a long-range, high-performance WiFi extender that increases the range of accessible WiFi hotspots, well beyond the range of a typical smart device. The product uses its multiple, built-in smart antennas to scan and connect to WiFi signals, rebroadcasting them in and around the camp site. The 4G LTE model can also connect to nationwide 4G LTE when WiFi is not available, ensuring reliable, uninterrupted, in-motion and stationary coverage. Users can stay connected to family, friends, web content, entertainment, and now their RV.

The 4G LTE ConnecT 2.0 model is now certified with AT&T and Verizon as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot, and RV enthusiasts can either add it to their new or existing data plan by simply swapping out the included SIM card or choose Winegard ConnecT’s data plan, which features no-contract, 30-day plans with no data throttling, so users only pay for the time it’s being used.

At last week’s open house, Winnebago introduced the Vita and Porto: A compact Class C diesel built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis. Both products are equipped with best in class storage, tank sizes and carrying capacity. Other features include a new quiet, durable Supershell composite sleeper deck, a new prewired track and roof panel for Wi-Fi and cellular boost antenna systems and industry leading off the grid capabilities.

Reports Jefson, “We are seeing a great interest in being off the grid. More and more people seek a product they can take pretty much anywhere. But they want to be off the grid and still be able to run their appliances.”

This can be seen, he says, in the popularity of Winnebago’s Travato 59KL and 59GL, which were introduced at Winnebago’s Dealer Event in March. The Pure3 Energy Management System powered by Volta Power Systems ­­is a powerful, durable, and easy-to-use lithium system.

SEE OUR BLOG POSTS, VIDEO LIBRARY AND MORE ON THE WINNEBAGO TRAVATO HERE.

Under 200-lbs. the three-module automotive grade energy pack provides 8,700-watt hours. It is watertight and durable; and the steel housing is safe. The 59KL and 59GL come standard with a powerful inverter – a 3,600-watt pure sine inverter – bringing 30 amps of power wherever you are. Travatos also have a dedicated 58-volt alternator, or under hood generator. A simple analog gauge changes color to let users know how much energy is remaining with just a glance.

“The lithium ion battery is really exciting technology,” Jefson states. “You can imagine the options it opens up if you are not tied to a campground.”
