Battle of the B’s: Winnebago Solis vs. Winnebago Travato

This month we are going to focus on Winnebago Class B Camper Vans, the Battle of the B’s! The Class B Camper Van market continues to grow and offers a number of different options for those looking to go where they want, when they want, in an RV.  Class B motorhomes are compact and smaller in stature compared to traditional Class A and Class C Motorhomes. Class B’s are also larger and taller than a typical full-sized van allowing space within the Class B RV for living, sleeping and a wet bath. Winnebago offers a number of different Class B van options, we will discuss two of them below.

The Winnebago Travato and the Winnebago Solis are built on the Ram ProMaster Chassis. This Chassis includes a Radio/Rearview Monitor System and Ram ProMaster safety features including crosswind assist. The Travato and the Solis are each built with premium insulation to keep weather at bay and the sounds of the road out with ceiling-to-floor insulation. However, this is where the similarities end.

Reviewing Winnebago’s Campervan Lineup

Winnebago Solis,Curbed’s Best CamperVan

Winnebago’s Solis campervan was recently recognized by Curbed.com, an online publication, as one of the top 9 campervans for 2019.

Read the original article here.

Winnebago debuted two new camper vans this year, the Boldt and the Solis. Already well known for the Revel, a converted 144-inch Mercedes Sprinter with four-wheel drive, Winnebago is looking to grow its share of the camper van market.

Billed as a four-season pop-up camper built on the Ram Promaster chassis, the Solis is also Winnebago’s most affordable camper van with a 2020 price tag of $100,667. What’s exciting for potential buyers is that the Solis delivers sleeping space for four thanks to a rear double-bed area that converts to seating during the day. Buyers can opt for a queen-size Murphy bed that drops down, or—and this is key for families—a sofa bed that includes two additional three-point seat belts. This means that parents can safely drive and sleep their kiddos, either in the optional sofa bed or in the two chairs up front.

Whichever option you choose, two people can enjoy the rear sleeping space while another two people can sleep in the fiberglass pop-top area that includes the Froli sleeping system and three windows.
