Winnebago Motorhome Quality: Four Questions to Ask Before You Buy

Winnebago Vita vs. Winnebago View

The Winnebago View, the Winnebago Navion and the Winnebago Vita are each built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel Chassis. Each are equipped with 200-watt solar panels that come standard with each model and are expandable for additional solar power to help keep their 2 deep-cycle, Group 31 RV batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use.

In addition, the Winnebago View, Winnebago Navion and Winnebago Vita provide extended off-the-grid functionality with best-in-class holding tanks and generator. Go off-the-grid for longer with these models with holding tank capacities of 30-37 gallons of fresh water (dependent on floorplan), and 41 gallons capacity for black and gray tanks.

But that is where the similarities end. See below the difference between the Winnebago Vita and the Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion.

View-vs.-Vita

WINNEBAGO VITA

Base Price: $125,171

Floorplans – The Winnebago Vita is available in 2 floorplans, the 24F and the 24P. Winnebago has consciously made expansive galleys in the Vita, and even the bathroom door of the 24P gives extra space in the bathroom once closed. One of the main differences between the two floorplans is where the slide is located. In the 24F, the dinette is in the slide and in the 24P, the bed is in the slide.

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.

This allows you to use it as a food pantry or a closet of clothes, or for whatever fits your needs.

8 Reasons We Love the Winnebago Vita

10 New Features in the 2020 Winnebago View

Winnebago View vs. Winnebago Navion

Winnebago Motorhome Quality: Four Questions to Ask Before You Buy

Xantrex Lithium Smart Battery Solution

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

5 Reasons Why the 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.

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.

Winnebago Launches New Products at RVX

Additions to the motorhome lineup include the Boldt, View, Intent 28Y and Forza 34T AE. Winnebago Towables will showcase a series of new floorplans from the Spyder, Micro Minnie Fifth Wheel, Minnie Plus Fifth Wheel, Minnie, Micro Minnie and Minnie Drop lines.

Boldt — The Boldt is a four-season coach intended for real world use, the release noted. The Pure3 Advanced Energy system eliminates the traditional RV generator and gives owners the ability to power through the night without the use of shore power.

“The Boldt perfectly balances between sophistication and practicality,” said Product Manager Russ Garfin. “Our latest introduction to the B-van lineup is a quiet, comfortable camper van that can thrive in nearly any environment.”

The Boldt offers two floorplans, the 70KL and 70BL and is built on the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis which features a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine, blind spot monitoring, active brake assist, rain sensor and auto-high beam assist.

View — The View has been redesigned and features the all-new SuperShell Sleeper Deck that provides premium thermal and acoustic insulation, advanced Mercedes technology, new and upscale residential amenities, and other features to extend off-grid capability. It includes standard 200-watt solar and a 2,000-watt inverter.

The View 24J and 24D will be on display at RVX. Both will showcase new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis features such as brake assist, lane keeping assist, LED headlights and adaptive cruise control.

Intent 28Y — The Intent’s newest floorplan features three slide-outs, a bedroom with a walk-around queen bed, and a large galley, the release noted.

Forza 34T AE — Like the other two wheelchair-friendly models in the AE lineup, (the Intent 30R AE, Adventurer 30T AE) the Forza 34T AE features a wheelchair lift with an 800-pound capacity with controls that let wheelchair users independently enter and exit the coach with a key-fob remote.

Other wheelchair-friendly improvements include expanded hallways and toilet areas; a roll-in shower with assist bar and accessible faucet controls and adjustable showerhead. There are reachable appliances, systems monitor, light and generator switch placement, and a power transfer seat option as well.

The Winnebago Vita vs. Winnebago View

In the spirit of March Madness, we at Lichtsinn RV will be comparing various Winnebago motorhome models. Our next comparison in the March Motorhome Madness blog series is the ALL-NEW Winnebago Vita vs. the Winnebago View

Winnebago Vita 

The Winnebago Vita combines Winnebago’s legendary build quality with best-in-class features, a spacious interior and plenty of useful storage: the result is a compact and easy-driving package that’s perfect for solo travelers, couples or families. Designed specifically for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, the Vita’s two all-new floorplans boast the largest galley, the largest bed — even the largest holding tanks in the class. 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.

Winnebago View 

The motorhome that started the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter revolution just keeps getting better. From the powerful and economical turbo-diesel engine to the elegantly appointed interior, the Winnebago View is the ultimate in efficient, luxurious RV travel for couples and families. The View’s four slideout-equipped floorplans offer a variety of sleeping and living-space choices. All feature swivel cab seats for added seating flexibility in the lounge, a powered patio awning, and a cabover bunk for added sleeping capacity. For those seeking the ultimate Sprinter-based Class C motorhome, the View has never looked better.

Both the View and Vita are powered by the tried and true Mercedes Benz powertrain, estimated to achieve 16 to 18 mpg highway:

1.  Mercedes Benz 3.0L turbo charged diesel

2.  325 lbs feet of torque or power

3.  188 hp

4.  5 speed automatic Tip Shift transmission with grade braking capability

5.  Adaptive ESP technology for superior ride and handling

6.  Three point safety belts

7.  Front seats that rotate to become integral lounge chairs with seat height boosters for a more residential feel.  Also include armrests, adjustable lumbar support, headrests, and reclines, swivel and slide

8.  Hydraulic four wheel ABS brakes

9.  Dual front airbags

10.  Factory installed 5,000 lb towing package with 7 blade bargeman wiring and 500 lb vertical tongue weight
