12 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is BETTER than the Thor Sequence

Our first reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the floorplan offerings in the Winnebago Travato. The Travato comes in the 59K floorplan – offering a twin bed configuration with a spacious rear bath/shower area and swivel cab seats that expand your living space. This floorplan configuration is also available in the Pure3 Lithium-Powered 59KL. The Travato 59G floorplan offers exceptional flexibility and sleeping for four with the Flex Bed System near the cab and a large corner bed that flips up to make room for bikes or other large items. The Thor Sequence offers two floorplans that ONLY Sleep 2. Thor also DID NOT consider the usability of the swiveling cab seats. Swiveling cab seats are an integral part of the living area in Class B Campervans, and in both the Sequence 20L and 20K floorplans the driver’s seat is totally unusable when swiveled. In the 20K the drivers’ seat is obstructed by the sofa/sleeper and in the 20L it is obstructed by the galley.

Winnebago understands Class B Van owners’ needs better than Thor. Through continued voice-of-customer research and Class B owners’ events, Winnebago has taken the time to understand how van owners use their RVs. Which is why all Travato floorplans are configured to maximize the cab area for living space.

Our second reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the windows and ventilation in the Winnebago Travato. There are few features in a campervan that are more important than windows and ventilation. Van owners enjoy the ability to camp in off-the-grid locations where they can soak in picturesque outdoor scenery. Often that requires boondocking with limited access to hookups, so they require windows and doors that can open to let in the breeze. Thor did not take those needs into consideration when they developed the Sequence. The sequence has ONE SMALL LITTLE window that opens, and the older-style screen door. The Travato features several awning-style Remi Cab Windows that feature integrated sliding, pleated shades, and a rear insect screen. New for this year, the Travato also features an innovative, Rolef Side Screen Door that is made to take a beating while still providing reliable ventilation and insect protection. The Rolef screen door is made of a similar highly durable fabric as a high-end tent. When zipped owners simply open the magnetic closure to enter or exit and it snaps back into place. In addition to superior ventilation, Winnebago added the Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ Ultra-Quiet Air Conditioner into the Travato. The Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ is a 13,500 BTU air conditioner that is 4-6 decibels quieter than previous models. While this may not sound like much, decibels are measured in a logarithmic scale rather than a linear scale. The decibel logarithmic scale increases by powers of ten so for every increase of 10 dB on the scale is equivalent to a 10-fold increase in sound intensity. So… an air conditioner that is 4-6 decibels quieter is a significant improvement. The Thor Sequence has a 11,000-BTU traditional air conditioner that is louder and less powerful than the Travatos.

Our third reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the additional, upgraded automotive-grade insulation Winnebago added to the Travato. In the new model year, Winnebago added additional automotive-grade, block foam insulation to the roof and the sidewalls. This insulation is similar to the insulation in the four-season Winnebago Boldt and Revel. Additional insulation allows for improved temperature control and reducing heat or cool air loss. It also assists with road noise reduction and campground ambient sound reduction. The Travato also has blackout cassette shades that offer additional thermal protection. The Sequence doesn’t have the same highly engineered, automotive-grade insulation as the Travato or blackout cassette shades.

Our fourth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Winnebago Travato’s Sumo Springs. Winnebago is the market share leader in campervans, because they listen and value their owners needs. SumoSprings have been a fan favorite of Travato owners for several years, and now they are offered as a standard feature. SumoSprings® are a patented suspension product designed to enhance load carrying ability, stabilize sway, and improve overall driver control and ride comfort. They are maintenance free and are manufactured from proprietary closed micro-cellular urethane providing a smooth and progressive spring rate. The Thor Sequence doesn’t offer any feature – standard or optional like this.

Our fifth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Winnebago Travato’s Pure3 Energy Management System option in the Winnebago Travato. Campervan owners are looking for lithium power options in their vans, and Winnebago understands those owners. That is why Winnebago introduced the best-in-class Pure3 Energy Management System from Volta Power Systems in the Travato 59KL and 59GL floorplans. The Pure3 system is built with advanced engineering and a simple user interface so you can have confidence and peace of mind as you travel down the road. The 48V automotive-grade lithium energy storage pack provides up to 8,700-watt hours of energy, and 30-Amp whole coach electricity using a 3,600-watt inverter. One of the best parts of this hassle-free system is that it operates on the push of a button. With the same automotive-grade technology used in hybrid vehicles and EV applications, this advanced lithium energy system provides better value, ease of use, and confidence as you travel, live, work, and play. The Thor Sequence doesn’t offer owners a lithium option AT ALL.

Our sixth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Winnebago Travato’s unique storage solutions including Winnebago Exclusive Ram Mounts and Anything Keepers. Based on the success of the Ram Mounts in the Revel, Winnebago added the Ram Mounts Tough Track mounts to the Winnebago Travato. Ram Mounts are electronic device mounting solutions that are designed around an interchangeable ball and socket system that offer users’ devices shock and vibration protection. Winnebago incorporated Ram Mounts Tough Track Mounts throughout the Travato to offer owners the flexibility to safely mount their phones, laptops, or tablets in various locations within the Travato. Winnebago Exclusive – Anything Keeper Drop Down Baskets were also added to above the beds in the Travato to provide owners a place to keep their phones and other small items. Winnebago continues to find unique solutions to maximize the storage inside their Class B campervans.

Our seventh reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the larger sized solar power system. Winnebago realizes that van owners want all the solar power they can get on their vans, and has continued to increase the standard solar panels on their vans. The Winnebago Travato now offers 230-watts of Solar power STANDARD with a junction box and plugs for additional solar panels. The Thor Sequence only has 180-watts of solar and it doesn’t appear to have additional ports for portable solar panels.

Our eighth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is the Travato’s optional Summit Rack System with Movable Ladder. Winnebago offers an optional all metal roof rack with a movable ladder that attaches onto the roof rack for increased stability and safety when owners are using it. The Thor Sequence uses a Thule ladder that you are just supposed to lean against your RV – and climb up it. This ladder is not nearly as secure or safe as the Summit ladder system in the Winnebago Travato.

Our ninth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Travatos’ superior exterior features. Winnebago understands that a functional outdoor living space is a necessity for Class B campervans owners. The travato has excellent undercarriage lighting and a 13-foot armless powered patio awning with a wind sensor. The Thor Sequence does not have undercarriage lighting and it has an awning with an arm that attaches to the side of the van. The arm on the awning limits the outdoor space around the entrance, and users will find themselves running into or bumping their heads on the arm. The Winnebago Travato also offers Deluxe Feature Full Body Premium Automotive Paint on the entire exterior while the Sequence has plastic cladding on the entire front and rear of the coach.

Our tenth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Winnebago’s premium interior features including Corian countertops and Ultraleather furniture coverings. The Travato offers UltraLeather furniture coverings. Ultraleather gives you the softness, comfort, and luxury that is more durable than leather and incredibly easy to clean. Made with proprietary technology that combines four material layers including PVC-free polycarbonates, it has been tested and proven to surpass competitive fabrics for integrity and durability. Plus, Ultraleather offers superior thermal comfort—creating a comfortable, neutral body temperature regardless of the setting. The Thor Sequence has cheaper leatherette furniture coverings that will not stand up to the wear and tear of RVing like the Ultraleather coverings. The Travato features solid-surface Corian countertops while the Sequence uses a cheap knock-off. Corian countertops are non-porous so they are very easy to clean and are extremely durable.

Our eleventh reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Winnebago’s community of owners. The Winnie B’s – Winnebago’s group of Class B-van owners – regularly has meetups sponsored by Winnebago that build an amazing sense of community around products like the Travato. The Winnie B’s recently had a meetup of nearly 100 vans. During the Meetup they enjoyed leisurely activities like bicycle rides and brewery visits, and they were able to have one-on-one discussions with members of the Winnebago Product Development team and Winnebago employees that built the Travatos they lived in. As we previously mentioned, Winnebago utilizes these events to learn more about how owners use their Travatos so they can manufacture products that best help their owners explore the outdoor lifestyle.

Our twelfth reason why the Winnebago Travato is better than the Thor Sequence is Winnebago’s experience and innovation within the Class B and Campervan product lines. Winnebago has been at the forefront of the campervan and compact coach movement since THE 1980s – with the LaSharo and Rialta. 2019 is the first year Thor has “ventured” into the Class B van market with a ProMaster-based While Winnebago has been building the Travato for over 6 years, while continuing to innovate its features and floorplans to best meet owners’ needs. Winnebago was the first to bring features like the Froli Deluxe Sleep System, the Truma Combi Eco Plus Heating System, and Movable Ladders and Luggage racks to the Class B market. WINNEBAGO HAS RELIED ON INNOVATION NOT IMITATION to offer owners a product that enables extraordinary experiences as they travel, live, work in play in their Winnebago Travato.

  1. What is the difference between the two runs of National Park Foundation Edition Travatos? The only difference in the two runs is the deluxe exterior graphics options. In the first run, there was Copper Canyon and Amber Yellow and in the current run there is Martini Green and Light Gray. All of the other specifications and features are exactly the same. 
  2. Will there be more than 2 runs of these? We have been told by Winnebago there will not be another run of the NPF Travatos. 
  3. Does the Portable Solar Panel have a Special Storage Location? There is not a dedicated storage location for the portable solar panel. It can be stored wherever you would like it – the panel is extremely light weight. 
  4. Can the additional solar panel be added to the roof? The additional solar panel is portable and intended to be used with the portable solar port on the side of the van. 
  5. Will the portable solar panel fit above the upper storage area in the cab? We tested this and it works perfectly to store the panel. Thank you to the viewer for the suggestion. 
  6. What are the Sumo Springs? SumoSprings have been a fan favorite of Travato owners for several years, and now they are offered as a standard feature. SumoSprings are a patented suspension product designed to enhance load carrying ability, stabilize sway, and improve overall driver control and ride comfort. They are maintenance free and are manufactured from proprietary closed micro-cellular urethane providing a smooth and progressive spring rate. 
  7. What changed in the state-of-charge gauge? The State-of-Charge gauge was changed in 2020 and was reconfigured to show remaining usable energy. 
  8. Does Lichtsinn RV have photos/videos available of the new exterior? Yes, we have complete photos and video available of the new exterior and the interior on the National Park Foundation Travato. You can see the photos/videos of the Travato 59KL here and the Travato 59GL here
  9. Can the Anything Keeper drop down shelves be retrofitted to an older Travato? Yes, the Anything Keepers can be retrofitted to fit an older Travato. 
  10. What are the warranties on the NPF Travato? The Volta battery system has an 8 year warranty on the battery, the appliances will have a 1-3 year warranty depending on the appliance manufacturer, the Ram ProMaster Chassis has a 5 year/60,000 mile on powertrain and a 3 year/36,000 miles on the chassis. Winnebago offers a 1-year/15,000 mile fit and finish warranty. Lichtsinn RV offers various extended service contracts to protect your Travato after the standard warranties expire.

Based on the powerful, fuel efficient ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the van life revolution since its launch. Estimated to achieve 18 to 22 mpg highway, at only 21 feet long the Travato offers all of the comforts of home in a nimble, efficient van.

The Pure 3 provides complete 30 AMP whole coach electricity using a 3,600 watt pure sine inverter. The Travato’s dedicated 58 volt alternator, or under hood generator, is twice as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris and the auto start and high idle control significantly extends air conditioner run time.

The MPPT solar controller provides best in class solar absorption, up to 30 percent better than competitors, giving you more off the grid performance.

Simple, seamless operation with one touch button controls incorporate automatic engine start when the battery is low and can recharge a fully depleted system in approximately 1.4 hours.

Winnebago Earns Ram Quality Membership

The FCA Commercial Vehicle Team has designated Winnebago Motorhomes, Forest City, Iowa,  as a member of the Ram Quality Professional Program.

As a qualified member of the Q-Pro program, Winnebago is joining a select group of upfitters and body manufacturers dedicated to exceeding customer’s expectations for quality, reliability and dependability. Winnebago is the first RV manufacturer to earn this designation.

To become a qualified member of the Q-Pro Program, FCA engineers evaluated Winnebago’s processes related to quality, regulatory compliance and continuous improvement. This involved an on-site visit by FCA’s team to validate that Winnebago’s processes met and exceeded the criteria in the three evaluation areas.

“At Winnebago, we strive to provide a superior product to our customers by doing things the right way,” said Brian Hazelton, vice president and general manager – Motorhome Business. “We work closely with suppliers to maintain the integrity of purchased components in order to ensure quality in the finished product. By following these guidelines, we believe it has allowed us to excel and become the first RV manufacturer to be named a member of the Q-Pro Program. Quality continues to be a priority for us as we work to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations and help create extraordinary experiences in the outdoors.”

Winnebago builds the Travato on the Ram ProMaster chassis. Since its launch in 2014, the Travato has been at the forefront of the campervan revolution. The latest evolution in the Travato lineup is the 59KL and 59GL, which features the Pure3 Energy Management System. This durable and easy-to-use lithium energy system allows RVers to “cut the cord” and replenishes power to the coach through multiple charging options.

Top 10 Safety Features in the Winnebago Travato

In the Winnebago Travato there are over 35 active and passive safety enhancements in the RAM ProMaster chassis. We listed our top 10 safety features in the 2019 Winnebago Travato.

WATCH OUR VIDEO ON THE TOP 10 SAFETY FEATURES IN THE WINNEBAGO TRAVATO

  1. High Mount Headlamps – the Travato is built on the Ram Promaster Chassis which is modeled after the European Fiat chassis. A major style and safety benefit in the Promaster chassis is the headlamps that are mounted above the grill. These headlights will provide better visibility on the open road, and in case of an accident, the location of the headlights should minimize repair costs.
  2. Crumple Zones – These zones are built into the chassis and act as an impact absorbent and are designed into the front axle and front end of the chassis. They are designed to absorb the energy during an impact, so the passengers are not affected by the crash.
  3. Airbag Safety – The Travato has three different sets of airbags including dual front airbags, dual side curtain airbags, and side seat bolster airbags (available in both cloth and leather). The Travato has the most airbags of any RV.
  4. Seat Belt Pretensioners – With the six airbags, seat belt pretensioners are built in. The pretensioner mechanism detects the signature abrupt deceleration of an accident. In turn, the seatbelt pretensioner mechanism rapidly drives the spool around which the fabric strap of a seatbelt is wrapped. That incredibly fast retraction of the belt fabric removes the slack from the belt instantly. This extra seatbelt “pre-” tension, moments prior to the full force of impact, pulls the bodies of the driver and front-seat passenger firmly into their seats.
  5. Knee Bolsters – In conjunction with the airbags and seatbelt pretensioners the knee bolsters in the cab area keep the occupant in the correct upright position in an accident so the airbags can properly protect the occupants.
  6. Uconnect with Tom Tom GPS – The Uconnect system with Tom Tom GPS provides users hands free calling and voice guidance while navigating. This system allows for the driver to be completely focused on driving and not distracted by calls or using the GPS.
  7. Rearview Camera – The rearview camera in the Travato aids drivers when backing up with its wide angle it also provides color coding based on how far away you are from a potential hazard.
  8. Electronic Stability Control – The system will reconcile the turning path of your steering column by adjusting individual brake pressure and the vehicle’s throttle control to maintain the steering path observed by the vehicle.
  9. Four Wheel ABS – The Winnebago Travato has four-wheel anti-lock brakes just like your light duty truck or SUV.
  10. Tire Pressure Monitoring System – The TPMS is integrated into your front dash and will give you the real time tire pressure levels so you can prevent a flat.

Winnebago Travato Pure3 Energy Management System vs. Coachmen Galleria Li3

When comparing the available power, we are looking at power off the pure sine wave inverter. This tells how many amps users will get without being hooked up to shore power. The Winnebago Travato 59KL and 59GL provides 30 amps of available power, without being plugged into shore power, while the Coachmen Galleria Li3 provides 25 amps of power. In the Travato, you will always be traveling with full 30 amp of service off the extremely powerful 3600-watt pure sine wave inverter. If you are looking to boondock, the Coachmen Galleria Li3 is not going to be able to power your electronics and appliances for as long as the Winnebago Travato with the Pure3 Energy Management System.Winnebago Travato 59GL and 59KL

Voltage: When looking at voltage, were comparing the Travato 59KL/GL’s second alternator to the Coachmen Galleria Li3’s second alternator or as they refer to it – “the underhood generator.” The Coachmen Galleria Li3’s second alternator is a 12 volt while the Travato 59KL and 59GL with the Pure3 Energy Management System has a 58-volt second alternator. The Travato’s second alternator has an extremely compact design that keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris.

Energy: Comparing Winnebago’s Pure3 Energy Management System’s energy capacity to the Coachmen Galleria Li3 reveals a rather large discrepancy between the two. The the Coachmen Galleria Li3 provides 7,200 watt-hours while the Winnebago Pure3 Energy Management System provides 8,700 watt-hours.

You might be wondering if watt-hours are really that important? Yes, they absolutely are. A Watt Hour is a unit of measurement for power over a period of time, in our case an hour, and is a way of measuring capacity. One watt-hour is equal to one Watt of average power flow over an hour, so one Watt over 10 hours would be 10-Watt Hours. Volta, the company that partnered with Winnebago to build the Pure3 system, has a power calculator on their website and showed what the run times for the Pure3 System would be. If you were boondocking (not hooked up to shore power) and you were not collecting any energy from your solar panels and you wanted to run your air conditioner all day (at 50% duty cycle), run your compressor refrigerator all day (at 50% duty cycle), binge watch your favorite show on your big screen HDTV for six hours and have every single light in your coach on you would have to recharge in 7.3 hours.

Charging Power and Time: Time is of the essence for RVers needing to charge their lithium system. Both the Coachmen Galleria Li3 and the Winnebago Pure3 Energy Management Systems will recharge from the second alternator. If you recall, the Coachmen Galleria Li3 has a a 12-Volt alternator while the Pure3 has a 58-Volt alternator. The Pure3 Energy Management System can also completely recharge the battery approximately 90 minutes while the recharging time of Coachmen Galleria Li3 is over 2 hours and 42 minutes.

Lithium Ion Type and Life: With top performance and safety as uncompromising goals, Winnebago and Volta developed a  plug-n-play scalable system using high-density, nickel manganese cobalt batteries. These outperform “consumer-grade” lithium ion competitors with about two times the effective storage and take up one third the space of AGM lead acid batteries. What’s more, they’ll last the lifetime of a vehicle, service anywhere and can withstand cold storage.

Under 200-lbs. the Travato’s Pure3 Energy Management System three-module, automotive-grade energy pack providing 8,700 Whrs. The energy pack is watertight and durable, the steel housing is the safest on the market. The Coachmen Galleria Li3 is a consumer-grade lithium ion battery with far less storage capacity as the Travato’s.  The Pure3 Energy Management System lasts the lifetime of the vehicle and has been tested. Its expected life is 10 years/2000 cycles at 80%. The expected life of the Coachmen Galleria Li3 is unknown.

Warranty: The lithium ion system but the Travato’s Pure3 Energy Management System has an industry-leading 8-year warranty on the battery which was designed to last a lifetime. While the Coachmen Galleria Li3 warranty is significantly less at 3-years.

Winnebago’s new Pure3 Energy Management System is an industry leader and is superior to the Coachmen Galleria Li3. See our entire Travato inventory and learn more about the Winnebago Travato here.

The Winnebago Travato- New Interior Colors

Based on the powerful, fuel efficient ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the van life revolution since its launch.  Estimated to achieve 18 to 22 mpg highway, at only 21 feet long the Travato offers all of the comforts of home in a nimble, efficient van. Recently, Winnebago introduced two new interior colors for the 2019 Travato, Bleu and Mecca with the Macchiato and Nocé wood choices.

Travato

Watch our video about the Travato’s new interior colors here.

Bleu – The Bleu interior is a light, neutral beige and features the lightest of the UltraFabrics with a stone-inspired Corian countertop and tile patterned vinyl flooring.

Mecca – The Mecca interior is a medium, neutral beige with a marble-inspired Corian countertop with a bamboo patterned vinyl flooring.

Both the Bleu and the Mecca interior colorways have the option of either a Macchiato interior or a Nocé wood choice. The Macchiato is the lighter of the two wood choices and is the high-gloss option, and the Nocé is a chocolate brown matte wood. Both the Macchiato and Nocé are built by Technoform. Technoform Cabinetry is based in Italy and utilizes computer-aided design to ensure the perfect fit and finish. Technoform cabinetry is extremely light and durable perfect for RV applications.
