5 Reasons Why we Think the Winnebago Boldt is Better than the Pleasureway Plateau FL

Here are the five reasons why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL.

Watch our video on the 5 Reasons Why We Think the Winnebago Boldt is Better than the Pleasureway Plateau FL here.

Our first reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is Pure3 Energy Management System in the Winnebago Boldt. The Pure 3 provides complete 30 AMP whole coach electricity using a 3,600-watt pure sine inverter and simple one touch operation, compared to using multiple inverters and multiple startup procedures in the PleasureWay. The Pure 3 Volta Power Systems automotive grade 48V energy pack provides 11,600-watt hours of energy!  The energy pack is watertight, durable with the steel housing being the safest on the market, and batteries are climate controlled. The Boldt’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. The MPPT solar controller and 200-watts of standard solar panels provides best in class solar absorption, up to 30 percent better than competitors, giving you more off the grid performance. The Pleasureway has a far smaller battery pack offering dual 100-amp hour lithium batteries, a smaller inverter at 2000 watts, and solar is an additional fee.

Our second reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is Winnebago Boldt’s floorplan options. The Boldt comes in the 70BL and 70KL floorplans. The 70BL floorplan features sleeping for 4 with the dinette flex bed, a mid-coach bath, and rear twin beds that convert into cross-coach sleeping. The 70KL floorplan features a spacious galley, twin beds that turn into cross coach sleeping and a roomy rear bath with wardrobe. The Pleasureway Plateau FL is available in only 1 floorplan. The Plateau FL floorplan has a midcoach bath and a rear seating and sleeping configuration for only 2 people. The FL doesn’t have a dinette or swiveling cab seats, it has a rear sleeping and seating configuration that is a tight squeeze when the table is up and doesn’t have a ton of leg room.

Our third reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is the bathroom configuration in the Boldt. Winnebago considered moisture buildup when they designed the bathroom in the Boldt. The bathroom surround is made from light-weight, durable and water-resistant ABS plastic. You will not have to worry about mold or mildew and cleaning will be a breeze. Pleasureway did not take the same considerations when designing the bathroom. The walls of the bathroom are made from wood paneling and covered in small Velcro dots you are supposed to hang a shower curtain on. The integrity of the Velcro dots will break down with usage of the shower curtain leaving your bathroom vulnerable to mold and mildew build-up.

Our forth reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the PleasureWay Plateau FL is the lightweight Tecnoform Italian cabinetry. Tecnoform cabinetry is Italian-designed, curved cabinetry that is extremely lightweight and highly durable. Tecnoform uses state-of-the-art materials and an environmentally friendly manufacturing process to create doors specifically for the Era. These beautiful, lightweight cabinets were designed to hold up to the most extreme humidity and temperature conditions without cracking, peeling, or warping. The Plateau uses heavy plywood cabinets that were not designed with the same stringent standards and take away from the occupant cargo carrying capacity in the Plateau.

Our final reason why we think the Winnebago Boldt is better than the Pleasureway Plateau is Winnebago’s superior build quality. In Winnebago’s 60 years of building RVs they have pioneered several construction standards that are now industry standard. Winnebago was the first RV company in the U.S. to manufacture compact RVs and campervans. Why buy an RV from any other manufacturer?

That wraps up our five reasons why the Winnebago Boldt is better than the Pleasureway Plateau FL. You can see our Winnebago Boldt inventory and other videos like this one by visiting LichtsinnRV.com.

The Winnebago Boldt’s VS30 Chassis

Inspired by German explorer and naturalist Alexander Von Humboldt, the Winnebago Boldt was developed for agile adventure. Built on the new Mercedes-Benz VS30 Chassis with the exclusive Pure3 Advanced Energy System, it perfectly blends innovation and comfort on the road. The Winnebago Boldt features the brand-new Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis that possess innovative safety and technology features owners will adore.

Mercedes-Benz VS30 Powertrain –

The new Sprinter’s design evolution features a reshaped grille, fenders, and lights, plus a new rear window. The cabin area redefines comfort with ergonomic seats, a redesigned instrument cluster, and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The 3.0L 6-cylinder turbo diesel offers 325 lb.-ft. of torque or power with 188 horsepower and Mercedes-Benz’ 7G-Tronic automatic 7 speed transmission with grade-braking assist. The 7G-Tronic automatic transmission has shorter acceleration times without sacrificing fuel economy.

Winnebago Boldt

Safety Enhancements –

When Mercedes built the new Sprinter, they didn’t just aim to set a new benchmark for vans – they set out to make one of the safest vans on the road, period. To accomplish this lofty goal, Mercedes brought all of their legendary knowledge, research, and development to the task.

Cab Area in the Winnebago Boldt

Active Brake Assist senses the likelihood of a collision with a vehicle ahead and sends both a visual and audible warning followed by initiating autonomous braking, and an industry exclusive to include pedestrian active braking.

The new active distance distronic is an intelligent cruise control system that senses traffic conditions and actively controls your speed to keep you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

The new active lane keep assist will provide you with visual and audible warnings if your van leaves its lane unintentionally.

Blind spot assist including Rear Cross Traffic Alert – employs automatic braking to avoid a collision with traffic crossing the vehicle’s path including traffic passing while the van is backing up.

Crosswind Assist detects strong gusts of crosswind and helps the driver to stay on course. At speeds over 50 mph it corrects the vehicle’s course by means of automatic braking intervention on the wheels on the side of the vehicle facing the wind.

New 360 Camera simplifies parking and overall maneuvering with extended safety support from the 360-degree camera system.

LED High Performance Headlights improve illumination, maximizing the view of the road ahead while further enhancing the vehicle’s overall aesthetic with a sleek optional front-end design

Technology –

The Boldt will have connectivity like never before with the new Sprinter Chassis. It starts with the large 10” MBUX touch screen with the “Hey Mercedes” operating system with intelligent voice control and natural speech recognition. The MBUX’s infotainment center features USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Sirius XM, and a mobile hot spot in the van. The Boldt also features Mercedes-Benz’ Mercedes PRO functionality. Mercedes PRO users can access mobile WiFi and Car to X communication, one of the new Mercedes PRO connect services. Receive a warning in your new Sprinter with Car to X communication if there is heavy rain, fog, icy roads, or accidents ahead. This service is based on automatically collated data from all the vehicles using this technology, drivers get notifications when other drivers encounter a hazardous condition. The Mercedes PRO features require a Mercedes PRO account which is an additional fee.

Four Season Capabilities in the Winnebago Boldt

Four Season Capabilities in the Brand-New Winnebago Boldt

The Winnebago Boldt’s allows you to Journey in comfort any day of the year. Wherever, whenever: travel year-round without sacrificing comfort, thanks to the Boldt’s open cell, noise dampening insulation. Keeping you cool in the summer and spring and warm through the fall and winter, the Boldt makes for the perfect all-weather vehicle. The Boldt’s insulation, water systems and heating systems allow for users to enjoy the camping season at below freezing temperatures.

Winnebago Boldt

Insulation: The Boldt’s insulation is influenced by Winnebago’s first 4-season rig, the Revel. Like the Revel, all of the voids in the Boldt are filled with automotive-grade insulation. This insulation is cut by a computer-controlled CNC router. The insulation in the Winnebago Boldt is engineered in the design of the coach by Winnebago’s team and then the insulation is cut by a computer-controlled CNC router for precisely fitted insulation. The insulation Winnebago uses is a solid piece that won’t mold or mildew and it will not compress over time. The next step Winnebago took in insulating the Boldt, is in the walls of the van. Each wall is ¾ of an inch thick with the interior wall paneling on top of it. The ceiling of the van also has automotive grade insulation in it along with the floor. In addition to the floor’s insulation, the Boldt also features the thicker floor coverings for additional insulation. So in the Revel, there is a complete thermal break from the front of the b-pillars of the van all the way back to the rear windows.

Water Systems: For the Boldt to be a true 4-Season RV, water systems must be considered. In the Boldt, all of the water lines are inside the coach, inside of the thermal break. Fresh water holding tanks and gray and black holding tanks are in a double insulated tank with heating pads to ensure holding tanks do not freeze. The heated pads on the holding tanks are powered off the extremely powerful Pure3 Energy Management System, so Boldt owners will not have to worry about the pads running out of power. The lithium battery pack in the Pure3 Energy Management System is 33% more powerful than the lithium pack in the Travato 59KL and 59GL. Like the water systems, the battery in the Boldt is inside the coach, inside the thermal break.

Water Systems in the Boldt

Heating Systems: The Boldt features the Truma Combi Eco Plus Heating System with 2 850-watt electric heating elements. That is a very powerful heating system. This heating system will keep you, and your tanks, warm in colder temperatures. Since the Truma Combi is powered off LP and electric, Winnebago loaded the Boldt with an impressive 16-gallon LP tank, that size LP tank is seen in large Class C and small Class A Gas RVs. You will not have to worry about running out of LP when you are boondocking in cooler climates.

Truma Combi in the Winnebago Boldt

The Winnebago Boldt is a great option for RVers looking to get off the beaten path with more amenities.
