Looking for a big coach with big value built to Winnebago’s uncompromising standards? Look no further than the Vista and Sunstar… Winnebago’s most affordable Class A motorhome. You wanted more in an affordable Class A coach, and you got it in the Winnebago Vista and Itasca by Winnebago Sunstar, both of which are identical all the way down to features, quality, content and price. We are one of only a few dealers that offer both and can provide you that unbiased opinion between the Vista and Sunstar.

You’ll find refined features such as MCD roller shades and a Versa easy swivel driver’s seat that you might not expect at such a price. For couples and families seeking a Class A adventure at a friendly price, there’s a Vista or Sunstar waiting for you.

Onlookers will be impressed by the chrome accents and all new Polar Flare Desert Champagne exterior, while you’ll be impressed by the value added price.

The Winnebago Forza and Adventurer are frequently compared because the Adventurer is the top of the line Class A Gas and the Winnebago Forza is the entry-level diesel. So when our guests are debating between the two they are trying to identify whether they want to move up to the Class A diesel lineup.

Most guests will opt for a Class A diesel pusher for the following reasons:

  • Increased torque or power, if needed. Our Winnebago and Itasca diesel pushers range in torque from 700 – 1,250 lbs ft of torque or power, compared to 457 in Ford Class A gasoline powered coaches
  • Increased towing capacity beyond 5,000 lbs, if needed. Many of our diesel pushers will pull 10,000-15,000 lb
  • Air ride suspension and air braking capability
  • The quietness of the ride, which simply stems from the fact the on a Class A diesel pusher the engine is in the rear of the coach, nearly 30-40 feet behind the cabin area. However, Ford’s evolution of its five speed Torqshift transmission has allowed for shifting at lower RPM points, driving down engine howl compared to previous powertrains
  • Resale value of a diesel pusher is typically stronger than in a Class A gasoline powered coach

Most guests will opt for a Class A gas motorhome for the following reasons: 

  • Price – Class A Diesel motorhomes are going to be more expensive than Class A Gas. The Winnebago Adventurer starts at $152,862 while the Forza starts at $251,033.
  • Maintenance – Beyond purchase price, the overall maintenance and operating expense of a gas coach is also generally less expensive than that of a diesel. However, you may do less maintenance with a diesel pusher.
  • Operating Costs – Cost of parts and service work is less in a Class A Gas vs. a Class A Diesel because the work is less complex and it can be more convenient to find service locations for a Ford versus a Freightliner or Cummins dealer.
  • Fuel Considerations – the cost of diesel is generally higher than gasoline and the fuel economy is expected to be 7-10 with either the Class A Gas or Diesel.

Lichtsinn RV carries both the Winnebago Adventurer and Forza in various floorplans.

Lichtsinn RV, America’s closest dealer to Winnebago Industries, has been named Top North American Winnebago Dealer by Winnebago Industries for the last four consecutive years. We proudly sell New RVs manufactured by Winnebago Industries as well as Used RVs

Winnebago Debuted Several New Products at Open House

Winnebago Motorhomes is pleased to announce the launch of several new products at this year’s Winnebago Open House event in Elkhart, Indiana. Additions to the motorhome lineup include the Class C Vita and Porto and the Class A gas Adventurer.

Vita and Porto: A compact Class C diesel built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis, the Vita and Porto offer quality and innovation customers have come to expect from Winnebago at an affordable price. 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.

The interiors are highlighted by a best in class galley with large counter space, double sink, ample storage and a big panoramic window. The Vita and Porto are available in two floorplans – the 24P and 24F.

“At under 25 feet, the Vita and Porto allow you the freedom to explore everything from a major metropolitan area to a remote forest,” said Russ Garfin, product manager. “Throughout the coaches, we have implemented features for customers who are looking for a high-quality, easy to drive, durable and efficient base camp to support mobile and active lifestyles.”

Adventurer: The all-new Adventurer is the definition of Winnebago Class A Gas luxury. Built with Winnebago’s legendary SuperStructure, the Adventurer offers styling and floorplans to meet a variety of tastes and needs. It is packed with interior features normally found in diesel pushers like: Corian countertops, a Versa driver cab seat and Primera furniture coverings. Key exterior features include an entertainment center, pet leash tie down, an LP system provided in the patio area of the coach and full body paint with chrome mirrors.

“The Adventurer is packed with user-friendly features, and more value than ever before,” said Director of Sales Niles Whitehouse. “Family-friendly floorplans offer spacious living, and ample storage space to provide all the comforts of home.”

The Adventurer is available in five floorplans – the 27N, 30T, 33C, 35F and 36Z.
