What’s New in the 2020 Winnebago Revel

Reviewing the VS30 Chassis in the 2020 Winnebago Revel

Introducing the New 2020 Winnebago Revel

 

 

 

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.

That wraps up our 5 reasons why the Winnebago View and Navion are Great RVs. You can see our Winnebago View inventory here.

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.

Hey Mercedes! Reviewing the Mercedes-Benz MBUX System in the VS30 Chassis

Debuted in 2018, Mercedes-Benz’ MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) is a revolutionary infotainment and multimedia system in both the automotive and recreational vehicle industries.

The MBUX system is both an infotainment and multi-media system that can be activated by voice controls. Similar to Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri, the MBUX system is activated by a driver stating, in natural language, “Hey Mercedes.” The MBUX system is powered through artificial intelligence, so it is able to learn about the users driving preferences and create a better, more tailored experience for the driver. MBUX will learn your preferences and present them to you through a suggestions panel

IMG_9763

In addition to voice command, the MBUX system is accessed through the 10″ widescreeen touch screen in the cockpit that offering built in navigation, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Users can control the MBUX infotainment center through the new touch screen buttons located on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. The cockpit also offers wireless charging for cell phones and devices.

IMG_9760

The MBUX system provides  notifications to drivers from the VS30’s enhanced safety features including –

Active Brake Assist senses the likelihood of a collision with a vehicle ahead and sends both a visual and audible warning followed by initiating autonomous braking, and an industry exclusive to include pedestrian active braking.

The new active distance distronic is an intelligent cruise control system that senses traffic conditions and actively controls your speed to keep you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

The new active lane keep assist will provide you with visual and audible warnings if your van leaves its lane unintentionally.

Blind spot assist including Rear Cross Traffic Alert – employs automatic braking to avoid a collision with traffic crossing the vehicle’s path including traffic passing while the van is backing up.

Crosswind Assist detects strong gusts of crosswind and helps the driver to stay on course. At speeds over 50 mph it corrects the vehicle’s course by means of automatic braking intervention on the wheels on the side of the vehicle facing the wind.

When TechCrunch, a technology-focused publication, reviewed the MBUX system they said, “In the end, MBUX is that rarest of beasts: A first-party infotainment system that’s exciting, powerful and extremely well-crafted from a technology perspective.”

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.

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.

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.
