Feature Teacher: Maxum Chassis

maxum chassis

 

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.

The Maxum Chassis is accompanied by Freightliner Custom Chassis’ UltraSteer, in the Grand Tour and Tour, further increasing maneuverability – up to a 17% reduction in curb-to-curb turning radius as compared to a fix tag axel (a 140% improvement over a competitor’s chassis). In the Horizon and Journey models, the Maxum Chassis is accompanied by Freightliner Custom Chassis’ V-Ride rear axle/suspension which provides drivers with consistent handling in all road conditions, giving motorhome drivers a confident driving experience.

When you purchase a Winnebago Class A Diesel from Lichtsinn RV you will get both the best RV manufacturer and the best chassis as well! Enjoy Carefree Diesel Living with Winnebago’s industry leading 3-year, 100,000-mile warranty on all diesel-pushers built on the Freightliner chassis.

Winnebago Horizon is Named 2018 RVBusiness RV of the Year

Horirzon Microsite

December 2017 – RVBusiness.com – The 2018 RVBusiness RV of the Year is Winnebago Industries, Inc.’s high-end Horizon Class A diesel motorhome with its authentically different modernistic interiors designed by the Iowa manufacturer’s in-house staff with input from Italian supplier Technoform S.p.A.

The 41- to 43-foot Horizon’s ultra-contemporary interiors feature high-gloss laminates, radius doors, plenty of stainless steel and backlit translucent panels – the kind of look that Winnebago President and CEO Mike Happe said is more likely found “in a Manhattan condo or London flat.”

It’s also a motif that, the RVB staff concluded, could well impact recreation vehicle product development down the road in coaches selling for considerably less than the $430,000 Horizon. The wall panels in the Horizon, built on a hybrid Maxum chassis and a customized Freightliner platform mated to a 450-horsepower Cummins engine, contain storage compartments with soft close doors and easy-access, pull-out shelf systems, which project the look of a high-end European yacht.

The Horizon brings elegance and style to Class A diesel living with high gloss Technoform cabinetry, Corian countertops, and contemporary interior styling.

 

The Horizon, in addition, sports Corian countertops with both integrated dish drain gutters and popup power strips for countertop appliances and USB charging.

“I think our design team, our product management leadership in the diesel category, wanted to create something with a more modern, more contemporary, more fresh interior within a high-end diesel luxury coach but in a way that gives the appearance that the coach is even more expensive than it is,” said Happe. “And so it was this dream that emerged to create a million-dollar look in something much more affordable.

 

HZ-B2F-18
The Horizon’s lounge is accented by luxurious Villa furnishings, a home theater system with soundbar, porcelain tile flooring, and soft ambient LED lighting.

 

“The journey on this product started several months ago with a team at Winnebago putting together the concept of what this could look like, the different materials that would be used,” he added. “We had a growing relationship with Technoform, an Italian cabinet supplier that has been very critical to this project. So, the vision behind this has been several years in the making. But the team was given the room to take its time and was empowered to bring to life something that was truly different than anything else on the market.”

“PressurePro carries a high standard of those we choose to work with, as we maintain the same elevated expectations for quality and support that we demand of our own solutions. We couldn’t be more impressed with our partnership with XiteSolutions North America or the final product birthed from it” stated Vanessa Hargrave, COO of Advantage PressurePro. “With a newly created user interface, XSNA has gone above and beyond to deliver our complete TPMS capabilities to Winnebago customers, including advanced options such as our trailer on/off settings and easy ‘sensor swap capabilities, all while maintaining unmatched ease of use and installation.”
