WATCH THE LIVE INTERACTIVE WEBCAST ON THE 2019 WINNEBAGO REVEL HERE.

Who are the competitors of the Revel and why is the Revel a better choice? 

Before the Revel was launched, consumers relied on third-party van outfitters like Sportsmobile to build campervans like the Revel. With third-party van outfitters, consumers would have to purchase the van body from a Mercedes dealer then they would have to take it to a third-party van outfitter to do a custom van conversion. These custom conversions took a significant amount of time to complete typically up to a year. Consumers also ran into difficulties purchasing the customized van because there were not options to finance the vehicle like there are with the Winnebago Revel. Consumers were having to take a loan out to purchase the van and then wait and take out another loan for the upfit. The Winnebago Revel solved that problem because it is a recreational vehicle so consumers are able to take advantage of RV financing.

Is the Winnebago Revel a four season RV? 

It is absolutely four-season capable due to the four wheel drive, espar heating, and insulation.

4WD and All-Terrain Tires: the 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. One option is the performance wheels and BF Goodrich® T/A® KO2 all-terrain tire upgrade option. The BF Goodrich® T/A® KO2 all-terrain tires have –

  • 20% Tougher Sidewalls: Featuring Proven CoreGard Technology to take on the toughest road hazards with confidence.
  • Longer Treadlife to extend your adventure.
  • Aggressive All-Terrain Traction to confidently get you where you want to go.

Espar Heating: The diesel-fired heating system provides continuous, unlimited hot water that will heat the coach, and the holding tanks to keep them from freezing. 

Insulation: Winnebago Industries has partnered up with the same component manufacturers  that General Motors, Mercedes Benz and The Ford Motor Company has used, using Automotive Grade Foam Insulation. This insulation has an R-rating of 4.4 per sq inch so it won’t settle as you are going off-road or off the grid. It also does not maintain odor and is built to provide the same R-value for the lifetime of the vehicle. This insulation meets automotive fire and safety standards. The insulation is engineered for noise reduction and thermal insulation and is not susceptible to moisture retention or mold.

Has the Diesel-Fired Hydronic Heating System always been on the Winnebago Revel? 

Yes, it has been on the Revel since the introduction. You can learn more about the Espar diesel-fired hydronic heating system here.

What kind of wheels do you get if you don’t get the upgraded wheels, and what does Lichtsinn RV see guests ordering? 

Lichtsinn RV stocks all our Revels with the upgraded performance wheels and BF Goodrich® T/A® KO2 all-terrain tire. You can learn more about the upgraded wheels and tires here. If you don’t get the upgraded wheels you will get 16″ painted steel wheels with stock tires.

Can Lichtsinn RV add Alumniness racks? 

Yes, Lichtsinn RV partnered with Aluminess to install the specialized racks. You can see them here.

Can you add an Easy-Start to the optional Coleman-Mach Air Conditioner in the Winnebago Revel?

An Easy-Start is an aftermarket accessory that works with the Coleman-Mach air conditioning system that allows you to use a lower wattage, lighter portable generator to power the air conditioner. However, with the easy-start when you fire it up it is a maximum draw and takes more power to start up than a larger generator like the Honda 2,000 generator which is what we see on most RVs.

What are the off-the-grid capabilities with the batteries in the Revel?

The Revel comes with three deep cycle AGM absorbed glass mat maintenance free RV batteries, with a 315 AMP hour bank. When our guests are camping off-the-grid they aren’t using the batteries as much and are relying on the diesel-fired hydronic heating system which is extremely efficient.

What are the differences between the 2019 Winnebago Revel and the 2018 Winnebago Revel?

In 2019, Winnebago added a new safety enhancement package that includes:

  • Light and rain sensor for automatic headlight dimming and wiper controls
  • Blind spot monitoring with indicator warning lights in side mirrors
  • Collision prevention assist
  • Lane keeping assist
  • High beam assist
  • First aid kit
  • Emergency flashlight
  • Leather wrapped steering wheel
  • Mercedes insulation in cab doors

Winnebago Surprises with its Revel 4×4 Camper Van

Best known for its larger motor homes, Winnebago has surprised the RV world with the introduction of its Revel 4×4 camper van — a Mercedes Benz Sprinter-based rig outfitted for rugged outdoor sport and camping trips.

The Revel 4×4 is designed to take you and your bikes, skis, climbing equipment, backpacks or other gear out into the backcountry while giving you a comfortable retreat to rest those achy muscles and bed down for the night.

Notable for its straightforward design and function-driven features, the Revel is powered by Mercedes’ 188-horsepower, 3.0-liter, six-cylinder turbo diesel engine. It pushes 325 lb.-ft. of torque through a five-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels via an on-demand 4WD system, complete with high/low range gearing and hill descent mode for added off-road capability.

Other features include electronic stability, traction control and four-wheel ABS braking. BF Goodrich T/A KO2 all-terrain tires provide the needed grip to deal with rough terrain.

While Winnebago pioneered the use of Sprinter-based road-touring vans, this brawny off-road-capable model, with a relatively short 144-inch wheelbase (19.5 feet overall length) and almost 6 inches of additional ground clearance, is definitely aimed at expanding the market to reach a younger, sports and adventure-oriented crowd.

The Revel features an innovative rear-mounted power-lift bed that lifts away to the ceiling to clear out a 140-cubic-foot (4 square-meter) gear garage for bikes, boards and backpacks. Double doors provide for easy loading, and six removable cargo tie downs can be implemented to help keep everything in place on bumpy terrain. At night, the 49-by-79-inch bed lowers down at the push of a button.

Off-the-grid adventures are aided by a 200-watt roof-mounted solar-powered electrical system (no LP gas or 110V power required) tied to three 105Ah deep-cycle AGM batteries to power onboard equipment.

Also roof-mounted is a low-profile, high-efficiency 13,500 BTU air conditioner. Continuous, unlimited hot water comes via an Eberspaecher hydronic heater with a diesel burner. It draws from the main diesel fuel tank to heat a glycol mixture that circulates through heat exchangers for both coach heat and continuous hot water. This system also heats freshwater and gray tanks in subfreezing conditions.

Additional outside features include a roof rack with a moveable ladder that allows access from various locations around the coach. Other neat pluses include an electric awning with built-in LED lighting and a wind-retraction system, side and rear screen doors and an exterior hot/cold shower.

Burly on the outside, the Revel’s interior features all the typical motor home amenities. A galley and wet bath are located across from one another, just in front of the rear bed.

The all-electric galley features a glass-covered single-burner induction cooktop, 2.5-cubic foot compressor fridge/freezer and a stainless-steel sink with a waste filtration system. Also, part of the galley package includes a flip-up countertop extension, spacious storage drawers and a pantry.

Up front, a folding dinette table pulls up between the front-facing bench and rear-swiveling cab seats. The table/seats also can be converted into a single bed.

Standard cabin features include a 6-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rear-view camera, adjustable front seats with armrests and lumbar support, and keyless remote entry. A JBL premium sound system and 9-inch infotainment center with Rand McNally RV GPS, Sirius XM radio and Bluetooth are available as an option.

With a base price of $134,799, the Revel may be out of the question for #vanlifers hoping to do things on the cheap — but it is a well-designed, top-quality off-road/off-grid package that looks to be just the thing for those who can afford it.

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.”

The Winnebago Revel Safety… The Story

The Winnebago Revel 4×4 was 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.

Watch a video about the Winnebago Revel’s Safety Features here.

Revel lifestyle 3-18

Top 6 Safety Features in the Winnebago Revel – 

  1. Airbags: Similar to a car or SUV, the Revel has airbags in the dash area, steering wheel, and in the cab seats
  2. Seat Belts: Both cab seats have 3-Point Seat Belts and the seat belts in the bench seat are lap belts, but they are bolted to steel unlike most other RV manufacturers that bolt them to plywood.
  3. Entry Assist Handles: Jump into your Revel safely with the entry assist handles and the running boards.
  4. BF Goodrich T/A KO2 Tires: Advanced tire footprint shape results in more evenly distributed stress, for longer more uniform wear. Interlocking Tread Design provide increased tread block stability, for more even wear over the long haul. The tires upper Sidewall Traction Bars provide increased mud, snow and rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations.
