8 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano

The first reason why we think the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity of the View and Navion. OCCC is an important specification to understand before you buy your motorhome. The OCCC label is required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to ensure that buyers know that weight of passengers and cargo they can safely carry. Vehicle safety systems like tires, brakes and collision avoidance all may be compromised when the loaded motorhome weight exceeds the chassis weight rating. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, personal belongings, and the weight of any fresh water 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. The Thor Delano has an OCCC of 349-lbs. while the Winnebago View and Navion have an OCCC range of 1,100 – 1451-lbs. That is OVER 300 PERCENT MORE OCCC in the View and Navion compared to the Thor Delano.

Watch our video on the 8 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano here.

Our second reason why we think the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the one-piece fiberglass roof in the View and Navion. The View and Navion come standard with a one-piece fiberglass roof on top of a laminated block foam insulated superstructure that is backed by over 60 years of proven durability and a 10-year parts-and-labor roof warranty. The fiberglass roof in the View and Navion is can be walked on and is stronger and more durable to outside conditions. The Delano comes with come with a rubber or TPO roof that is made from a cheaper glued and screwed construction to wooden trusses that can degrade over time. TPO roofs also require increased maintenance and regular repair to prevent roof degradation. Fiberglass roofs require lower maintenance and are more user-friendly.

Our third reason why we the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the solar power system in the View and Navion. The Winnebago View and Navion come with a best-in-class solar package including two 100-watt solar panels, a battery charger with controller, junction box, and plug for additional portable solar panel on the side. The View and Navion also come with a 2,000-watt pure sine wave inverter to safely power electronics. The Thor Delano comes with a single 100-watt solar panel and a 1,000-watt inverter. So… the Delano comes with half the solar power and half the inverter.

Our fourth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the sleeping configurations in the View and Navion. The View and Navion are available in three, unique floorplans with various sleeping configurations created to best suit your needs. The floorplan sleeping configurations include a POWERED Murphy+ Bed in the 24D, twin beds that convert into cross coach sleeping measuring at 74 inches wide and 87 inches long in the 24V, and a corner bed that makes room for a large corner bathroom. The Delano comes in three floorplans, but two of the floorplans – the 24RW and the 24TT come with an extremely heavy flip-down bed that has to manually lowered into the sleeping position. Our next reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is also related to sleeping.

Our fifth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the SuperShell Sleeper Deck in the Winnebago View and Navion. The new SuperShell sleeper deck includes premium thermal and acoustic insulation, making the front bunk lighter and more comfortable than ever before. The SuperShell Sleeper deck also provides great space for storage when it isn’t being used as a bed. The Delano comes with a generic cabover bunk that was not engineered with the same level of thermal and acoustic insulation as the SuperShell Sleeper Deck in the View and Navion.

Our sixth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the custom, automotive-grade entry door. In previous model years, Winnebago always had a best-in-class entry door on the Winnebago View and Navion. Winnebago took the best-in-class entry door to a whole new level with the custom-designed, automobile-grade entry door designed in Europe specifically for the Winnebago View and Navion. The new door is extremely sturdy, very similar to a car door, with dual latching points that greatly reduce wind and road noise. The inside of the new door features a sliding shade and in-door storage perfect for umbrellas, shoes and other outdoor gear. The Thor Delano features the typical 3rd party manufactured door that is often seen in entry-level trailers and RVs.

Our seventh reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the View and Navion’s superior off-the-grid capabilities. A compact coach is the ultimate freedom vehicle and the last thing you want is to be tied down to a traditional campground. The View and Navion feature 2 large Group 31 batteries, large freshwater tanks, best-in-class holding tank capacities, and a Compressor Refrigerator. The View and Navion also have optional lithium ion smart batteries available. Winnebago designed all of these features into the Winnebago View and Navion to provide users with extended off-the-grid functionality – like never seen before in a Winnebago View or Navion. The Thor Delano has a smaller inverter, one small  house battery, and smaller holding tanks. Overall, the Thor Delano is not well equipped for camping outside of a traditional campground. With the View and Navion anywhere can be your campground.

Our final reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is Winnebago’s superior experience building RVs. In Winnebago’s 60 years of building RVs they have pioneered several constructions standards that are now industry standard. Winnebago was the first RV company in the US to manufacturer compact RVs and Campervans. Why buy an RV from any other manufacturer?

The 2020 Winnebago View and Navion feature optional Lithium Ion Smart Batteries from Xantrex which provide even more off-the-grid capabilities in the best-selling Class C diesel.

WATCH OUR VIDEO REVIEWING THE LITHIUM ION SMART BATTERIES

The lithium system in the Winnebago View enables your appliances to last longer, the charge time of the system to be shorter, the lifespan of your battery system to be longer compared to lead-based batteries, and the system is half the weight of typical lead-based batteries. In fact, a lithium battery’s lifespan runs from 3,000 cycles to 5,000 cycles while lead-based batteries run 300 – 800 cycles.

To operate the Xantrex Lithium Ion Smart Batteries, push the button on top of the battery or initiate a charge cycle. To initiate a charge cycle you must plug into shore power, run the batteries off a generator, start the vehicle, or charge the batteries off the solar panels. If you are wanting to check the voltage on the batteries – you can check the OnePlace panel, the solar charger, the inverter control panel, or download the Xantrex app from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. In addition to checking the voltage on the app, users can check the battery temp to ensure they are running the batteries within suggested temperatures. The usable temperatures for the battery are -4° F – 131° F and the chargeable temperatures are 32° F – 113° F.

Users may wonder how they can maintain the battery charge when they are away from the RV. To maintain the battery charge, you can turn off the inverter and all loads and let the battery charge off solar. If you don’t have solar, you can turn off the batteries to prevent parasitic draws. If you are looking to put your RV into storage, you will want to charge the batteries to 80% before putting the RV away. For full storage information, please refer to the user’s manual.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion Are Great RVs

7 Reasons why the Winnebago View is Better than the Tiffin Wayfarer

Featured Floorplan: Winnebago View 24D

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Great RVs!

With new upscale details throughout, the View and Navion offer the freedom to live large in a compact coach. Combining quality with comfort, the View and Navion have been completely redesigned inside and out for an unparalleled Class C experience. We selected our 5 reasons why the Winnebago View and Navion are great RVs.

Reason #1 – The View & Navion’s Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity is the total weight of all cargo which includes you, your stuff, and all any freshwater you carry. The View and Navion’s occupant and cargo carrying capacity range from 1,100 – 1451-lbs, which are far superior to competitors’ OCCC. The View and Navion’s cargo carrying capacity is far superior to the competition because Winnebago invests in weight saving components like the highly durable, European-styled Italian Technoform cabinetry, who has been hand crafting cabinetry for high end yachts for years.

Reason #2 – The View & Navion’s Off-the-Grid Capabilities

A compact coach is the ultimate freedom vehicle and the last thing you want is to be tied down to a traditional campground. The View and Navion feature 2 large Group 31 batteries, 200-watts of solar, a 2,000-watt inverter, a 3,600-watt Cummins Onan Generator and a Compressor Refrigerator. The View and Navion also have optional lithium ion smart batteries available. Winnebago designed all these features into the Winnebago View and Navion to provide users with extended off-the-grid functionality – like never seen before in a Winnebago View or Navion. With the View and Navion anywhere can be your campground.

Reason #3 – the View & Navion’s SuperShell Sleeper Deck

The View and Navion feature the new SuperShell sleeper deck includes premium thermal and acoustic insulation, making the front bunk lighter and more comfortable than ever before. The SuperShell Sleeper deck also provides great space for storage when it isn’t being used as a bed.

Reason #4 – The View & Navion’s European Designed Automobile Door

In previous model years, Winnebago always had a best-in-class entry door on the Winnebago View and Navion. Winnebago took the best-in-class entry door to a whole new level with the custom-designed, automobile-grade entry door designed in Europe specifically for the Winnebago View and Navion. The new door is extremely sturdy, very similar to a car door, with dual latching points that greatly reduce wind and road noise. The inside of the new door features a sliding shade and in-door storage perfect for umbrellas, shoes and other outdoor gear.

Reason #5 – The View & Navion’s Premium Interiors and Smart Storage Design

In the living area, kitchen and bedroom Winnebago utilizes MCD shades. MCD Shades are both easy to operate and clean. MCD Night Shades are made of blackout fabric to block 100% of the light or made as a privacy shade which filters light into your RV. Both the proprietary ClearView and ClearView II screens provide an effective thermal barrier. The new window shades take the place of blackout curtains, cellular, vienna and silhouette shades, power visors, venetian blinds and other dated shades. MCD plans all shades utilizing CAD design and 3D software and manufactures with state-of-the-art computerized manufacturing equipment to ensure the highest quality and consistency. The View and Navion also feature new, smart storage features like the embedded paper towel holder and tissue dispenser. Another key design improvement is the roof wiring access port for technology. The roof wiring access port creates an easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the coach. This allows you to access to the roof to install your desired technology equipment whether it be wifi and cell boosters or satellite antennas. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for an easy change out and replacement for new equipment.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago Vita is a Great RV!

The Winnebago Vita and Porto combine Mercedes-Benz fuel efficiency and durability with Winnebago’s legendary build quality and innovative features, a spacious interior and plenty of useful storage: the result is a compact and easy driving package that is perfect for solo travelers, couples or families. Here are our 5 reasons why the Winnebago Vita is a Great RV!

Reason #1 – Best-in-Class Holding Tank Capacities

The Winnebago Vita features best-in-class holding tank capacities including 37 gallons of fresh water, and 41 gallons of black and gray tank capacities – 35% more than the competitors. The Vita also has the occupant and cargo carrying capacity to hold that much fresh water without sacrificing weight for cargo or occupants.

Reason #2 – 200-Watt of Solar Standard

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.

Reason #3 – Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity

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.

Reason #4 – SuperShell Sleeper Deck

Winnebago’s exclusive SuperShell composite hull, featured in the Vita, is produced in a closed mold with injected urethane foam sandwiched between the fiberglass outer shell and an interior panel. This design and manufacturing method is similar to how a high-end cooler is constructed. This superior design strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks. The design also reduced the number of parts and processes necessary to build the cab-over, improving quality and durability for our owners.

Reason #5 – Roof Access Connectivity Port

Easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the Winnebago Vita. 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.
