The Brand New Adventurer 29B

 

Winnebago Vita vs. the Competition

With more than 14 years of Sprinter RV experience, Winnebago designed the innovative Vita and Porto to be the most trouble-free and easy to operate Sprinter class C in the industry. Best of all, the new Vita and Porto provide industry-leading Winnebago quality and performance at an affordable price. Here are a few of the advantages of the Winnebago Vita and Porto over the competition.

Watch our video on the Winnebago Vita vs. the Competition here.

Best-in-Class OCCC – The Winnebago Vita and Porto are segment leaders for occupant and cargo carrying capacity. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV. Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000 pounds, while the new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity.

Increased Maneuverability – At just 24’7” the Winnebago Vita and Porto lead the class in maneuverability and allow users to park in smaller campsites that the competitor’s coaches may not be able to. The Winnebago Vita and Porto also have a 5,000-lb. tow hitch and plenty of OCCC to be able to tow a small vehicle.

Standard Solar – 200-watts of solar help keep your batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use. The Vita and Porto’s solar system is also expandable up to 450-watts. Most RVs in this segment come with solar prep or solar as an option for an additional fee.

1,000-Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter – The Winnebago Vita and Porto’s 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter safely powers electronics including the refrigerator, TV’s and certain 110V outlets from the coach batteries. This allows you to safely power your personal electronics without fear of a surge.

Dual Group 31 Batteries – The Vita has industry-leading battery capacity from the dual group 31 batteries providing 210 Amp Hours. The competitors either come with a single RV battery or dual batteries that do not have the 210 Amp Hours.

Connectivity Roof Port Wiring Access – Easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the coach. Allows the owner to install their desired equipment – like WiFi boosters, antennas, etc. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for easy change out and replacement for new equipment/wiring to be run inside the coach.

Unique Bathroom Layout – The bathroom door design in the Winnebago Vita and Porto 24P provides a large passageway to enter or exit the corner bath. When the door is closed, it creates a 90-degree corner for more usable inside space. Easy entry and exit are possible with the slideroom extended or retracted.

Compressor Refrigerator – The Winnebago Vita and Porto have the largest refrigerator in the class and are the only ones that have a compressor refrigerator. Compressor refrigerators run more efficiently and cool more effectively than absorption refrigerators.

Flexible, Multi-Use Storage – The Vita and Porto’s flexible storage areas are designed to be configurable for multiple uses, such as a pantry or a closet.

Winnebago SuperStructure Design – Winnebago’s SuperStructure design creates a durable and strong motorhome. Key elements include – roof, sidewall, and floor interlocking joints, laser-cut steel and aluminum substructure, advanced E-Coating for corrosion protection, Thermo-Panel composite sidewalls with welded tube framework, thermal break and embedded steel plates for secure cabinet and appliance attachment.

Large Full-Wall Slideroom – The Vita and Porto 24P have a large full-wall slideroom that encompasses a large section of the drivers side and is 3 ft. deep.

New SuperShell Sleeper Deck – Winnebago’s exclusive SuperShell composite hull is produced in a closed mold with injected urethane foam sandwiched the fiberglass outer shell and an interior panel. This superior design strengthens the cab over area and improves the sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and potential for leaks and squeaks.

Rear Corner Bed – The Vita and Porto 24F offer an 80″ length corner bed for sleeping comfort. The 24F rear corner bed is the largest in its class.

Top Questions from our Webcast on the Winnebago Vita

We recently held our monthly interactive webcast on the Winnebago Vita and Porto. You can watch our webcast here. Below are the top questions we received during the webcast about the Winnebago Vita.

February Webcast on the Winnebago Vita and Porto

What is the difference between the Vita and the Porto?
Nothing. They are both built by the same people, on the same lines, with the same quality materials. They offer the same options and standard features and are the same price.

What are the benefits of the OCCC in the Vita related to competitors?
OCCC is how much stuff, water and people you can carry in your RV. The Vita and Porto offer up to 1,600-lbs. Some competitors, like the Forest River product only offer 600-lbs of OCCC which once you get your people and water on board you are at max capacity.

Where do the Vita and Porto fit in the Winnebago compact coach line-up?
The Vita and Porto are built on the same chassis as the current (2019) Winnebago View and Navion. The Vita and Porto are Winnebago’s offering of the Mercedes-Benz Class C Sprinter Chassis at a more entry-level price.

What are the optional features in the Vita and Porto?
Exterior Paint Option – Canyon standard graphics, Canyon deluxe graphics, Pacific standard graphics or Pacific deluxe graphics
Diesel vs. LP Generator

Should I get a diesel generator?
In our experience, the pre-owned Views and Navions we receive with diesel generators typically have less than a 100 hours on them. So if you take the upfront expense of about $4,000 – you would pay $40 – $50 an hour to run your generator. And diesel generators do not offer any additional resale value over LP generators.

Why are the options so simple in the Winnebago Vita?
Winnebago made many of the features in the Winnebago Vita standard – and the competitors either don’t offer the feature or they cost an additional fee. Like the standard 200-watts of solar, the 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, and the electric stabilizer jacks.

What is the MPG rating of the Vita and Porto?
Conservatively 16-18 MPG based on the testimonials of the Winnebago View and Navion owners that have the same chassis as the Vita and Porto. The Vita and Porto are lighter than the View and Navion so there might be some additional fuel efficiencies gains versus the View and Navion.

What are the new, innovative features in the Winnebago Vita and Porto?
– SuperShell Sleeper Deck – The strong, lightweight SuperShell Sleeper Deck provides added thermal and acoustic insulation.
– Roof Access Wiring Port – allows for the addition of WiFi boosters, cell boosters and other technology without having to cut a hole into the roof of your coach.
– Fresh Water Manifold System – eliminated hundreds of connection ports for increased water pressure and minimizes water consumption.

What are the tank sizes in the WGO Vita and are they heated?
Both floorplans have the same tank sizes with 37 gallon fresh water tank capacity and 41 gallon black and gray tank capacities. And no they aren’t heated, but our RVDA/RVIA certified technicians have the abilities to make them heated by adding the heating pads.

How fast does a compressor refrigerator – like the one in the Vita – drain the batteries on a cloudy or snowy day?
Very little. Very minimal draw off the batteries. The compressor refrigerator was field tested with only group 24 batteries (the Vita has larger, group 31 batteries, solar and the 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter) and the batteries lasted 42 hours.

Do the windows slide in the Vita?
Yes – they do slide open and the large windows allow for great fresh air ventilation. The Vita has a sealed MaxxAir fan, the galley has a roof vent, and the bathroom has a powered ventilator fan.

Does the Vita come with front privacy shades?
The Vita does come with front privacy shades that aren’t like the cab curtain that prohibits front cab seat usage.

When will the Winnebago Vita be available?
The Winnebago Vita is currently available. See our inventory here.

And with standard features like the strong, lightweight and quiet SuperShell™ Sleeper Deck, 200-watt solar energy system, roof-port wiring access, panoramic galley window and exclusive customizable storage cabinets, it’s clear the Vita is more than best in class — it’s simply in a class all its own.

1.  Mercedes Benz 3.0L turbo charged diesel

March Motorhome Madness: Travato vs. Revel

In the spirit of March Madness, we at Lichtsinn RV will be comparing various Winnebago motorhome models. The first in our March Motorhome Madness is the Travato versus Revel. Both the Travato and the Revel have off-grid capabilities and are small and agile Class B motorhomes.

Winnebago Travato 

Based on the powerful, fuel efficient ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the van life revolution since its launch.  Estimated to achieve 18 to 22 mpg highway, at only 21 feet long the Travato offers all of the comforts of home in a nimble, efficient van.

The Winnebago Travato comes in four floorplans – the 59G, 59K, 59GL, and 59KL. Based on the powerful, fuel-efficient Ram ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the camper van revolution since its launch in 2014. Thanks to premium features such as the energy-saving Truma Combi eco plus heating, the Deluxe FROLI sleeping system and Corian countertops, the new Travato is better than ever. With significantly upgraded standard features like 200-watt solar panels and new interior décor colorways, alongside several options, you can tailor the Travato to suit your needs.

And now, the Travato also offers the most powerful, durable and easy-to-use lithium energy system in the RV industry.

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.

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 litre 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.

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. Add a standard solar power system that is expandable to 510 watts, diesel powered heating, a dinette with a pull-up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the new Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.

Storage and living space are maximized by the flared body and Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch sleeping surface. 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.
