What’s New in the 2020 Winnebago Revel

6 Reasons Why the Winnebago Travato is a Great RV

Introducing the Winnebago Boldt

Winnebago Solis Named Best-in-Show by RVPro

Winnebago Solis Named by RVPro Best in Show at Open House

The sheer volume of new RVs on display at Open House combined with the dizzying array of special features and amenities, made for difficult choices when RV PRO’s veteran editorial team attempted to narrow the massive list of contenders for inclusion in this special section highlighting what were determined to be RV PRO’s Top 20 Best of Show units for 2020. An RV is a manifestation of dreams. It’s inherent in its very nature – the moment someone said, “Let’s put a house on wheels.” With the introduction of the Solis, Winnebago proves how much it is listening to its customer base and what dreams they may have. Winnebago Solis 59P

A sister of the Travato Class B, the Solis was influenced by adventurers (like a utility light on the exterior to see hookups). In particular, one filmmaker enjoyed traveling to the beach and staring at the stars, so he custom-built a roof to do so.

That input is instantly noticeable with Solis’ fiberglass pop-top, which expands into a well-cushioned sleeping space with panoramic views for two adults. The roof bed utilizes a Froli Sleep System designed using quickly adjusting springs, invoking a floating feeling, so users can sail into space.

The all-weather Solis was constructed with adventurers in mind. It boasts what Winnebago Corporate Trainer Anthony Kelindoi refers to as a “surf-to-slope” design.

“You want to be able to use it in any situation,” he says.

The rear annex floor is comprised of a honeycomb vinyl material that can be sprayed clean after, say, surfing or snowboarding. Other Class B’s may incorporate lauan wood, which wouldn’t make that possible, according to Kelindoi. And changing into gear between activities is made easier with a rod extension widening the rear doors and a durable privacy screen that runs across it.

The automotive-grade insulation and waterline routing helps with heating dramatically. The efficiency is increased by a standard, 220-watt Xantrex solar panel and a Truma Combi Eco heating system.

All plumbing sits above floor and rinsing off after a swim is simple in the wet bath equipped with a Thetford cassette toilet. The kitchen includes a two-burner range top from Suburban and a 12-volt, compressor refrigerator for high altitudes and multiple level angles. A lighted glass tube in the galley indicates where water levels are for a more accurate read – no electric interface to know gallon count. Two molded bench seats are extra comfy despite their rugged appearance, with cream-colored Ultraleather sewn with “W” patterns all across.

Built on a RAM ProMaster 280-horsepower chassis, the Solis sleeps up to four adults and has an overall European design. A Murphy-bed in the back is comprised of slats and converts from a table with cozy cushions spanning the 6-foot-and-4- inch interior width. Zip screens on all the windows achieve full blackout for uninterrupted sleep.
The Class B has an MSRP of $100,667.

What impressed RV PROWinnebago has listened to its Class B customers to arrive at a product line that makes it possible to venture anywhere. From the magnets on the ceiling for the cabinet doors to eliminate the head-bump factor, down to the ample space throughout the entire camper, the Solis will have heads turning with its sleek, youthful, and minimalist design.

Travato Pure3 Energy Management System Power Calculator

The Pure 3 Volta Power Systems automotive grade 48V energy pack provides 8,700-watt hours, nearly double that of Roadtrek and more than Coachmen.  The energy pack is watertight, durable with the steel housing being the safest on the market, and batteries are climate controlled.

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.

Volta Power Systems, the manufacturer of the power system has a power calculator on their website if you are looking to see what systems you can run on the Pure3 Energy Pack and for how long. According to the calculator, you can run the air conditioner (all-day at 50% duty cycle), a midsize refrigerator (all-day at 50% duty cycle), a Big Screen LED TV for 6 hours, all of the LED Lights in the coach, an electric water heater (all day at 2% duty cycle) and a microwave for 10 minutes and it would take 10.51 hours before you would need to recharge. This also assumes no recharging during the day form solar, auto start, or plugging in.

These Aren’t your Grandparent’s RVs

Iowa-based Winnebago Industries recently rolled out a trio of new motorhome models aimed at shaking up the camping industry. The new RVs, which range from value-minded to high-end luxury products, represent a bold departure from the norm for the brand. But they’re not necessarily unexpected, given CEO Michael Happe’s motivation to update the storied brand to better compete within the industry and to recruit new consumers to RVs, which traditionally have appealed primarily to audiences 55 and above.

Already, orders are backing up for some of the new models, said Ron Lichtsinn, owner of Lichtsinn RV, Forest City’s Winnebago dealer. Demand has been particularly strong for Winnebago’s new four-wheel drive motorhome, called the Revel. It’s designed for campers who want to get off the main drags and experience nature up close.

“We just can’t get our hands on enough of these,” Lichtsinn said. “It’s not going to be a model that every dealer wants to carry because they’re not going to understand the activities that these will be used for. But it’s such a unique model that can be used for so many different things.”

Lichtsinn said it’s an exciting time to be a Winnebago dealer.

“We have the most creative, broad audience lineup we’ve ever had from Winnebago Industries,” he said. “The response so far has been incredibly positive.”

While Winnebago is certainly charting a new course under Happe’s leadership, the dealer said the brand is managing to stay loyal to its roots.

“I think we’ve taken a mindset of traditional quality and maintained that mindset but also driven a much fresher look with a more contemporary style with all three of the new products,” Lichtsinn said. “It’s driven more toward an audience that Winnebago hasn’t really played in in the past.”

Here’s a look at Winnebago’s three new motorhome models:

Horirzon Microsite

HORIZON

The sleek exterior of the diesel-powered Horizon might not stand out in a crowd of huge coaches. But the interior features a decidedly modern look that could be confused with a contemporary urban apartment.

“This is a product that when you walk in it, you feel like you could be in a flat in London or a condo in Manhattan,” Happe said. “This is not your grandparents’ interior or living room. This strikes a chord with those customers looking for the RV lifestyle but wanting a contemporary design.”

With a suggested retail price tag of about $385,000, the Horizon is well below the company’s top-of-the-line Grand Tour model, which is listed as high as $513,000. The model, which ranges from 41 to 43 feet long, features a warm gray and brown color palette highlighted by Corian countertops, porcelain tile floors, glossy white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Options include extras like a double vanity in the master bedroom and an electric fireplace.

“I think our diesel product manager and his product development team really stuck their neck out here and said, ‘Listen, we feel that this type of look is really missing. It doesn’t look like anybody’s doing that,'” Happe said.

He’s hopeful that the sharp design will help expand demand for the RV lifestyle among nontraditional buyers.

“They’ll look at the exterior and the interior and say, ‘OK, there’s an RV that matches my design taste.'”

Revel

On the opposite end of the spectrum is Winnebago’s new four-wheel-drive Revel. Marketed as taking a “no-nonsense approach to adventure,” the utilitarian motorhome has a suggested retail price of about $135,000.

Built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, the Revel is the most capable off-road vehicle ever built by Winnebago, Happe said. Its was designed to increase the occasions for RV use in North America.

“By producing a product that allows someone to explore the outdoors and get off the grid and be closer to the stream, be closer to the bike path, be closer to the ski hill is something that resonates with active explorers,” he said.

The 19-and-a-half foot, van-style RV includes a standard solar power system, diesel-powered heating and a dinette with a pull-up table that converts to additional sleeping space.

Forest City’s Winnebago dealer says the Revel is driving more demand than any other new Winnebago product in history. Some people want the motorhome for short adventures. Others want to make theirs a full-time home. Small enough to fit into many residential garages, some are even swapping their hulking SUVs in favor of the Revel.

“The Revel is literally the highest-demand product since launch that I’ve ever seen from Winnebago,” Lichtsinn said, “primarily because it appeals to such a larger audience than the traditional RVer.”

Intent Microsite

Intent

The Class A Intent is Winnebago’s attempt to better serve the value-minded customer.

The gas-powered coach, which ranges from 26 to 31 feet in length, is manufactured in Forest City. It includes a rear master bedroom, a convertible sofa and a dinette that converts into a bed.

Happe calls it a “groundbreaking product” for the brand. Listed at about $115,000, Happe said the “street price” for many customers will be in the $80,000 range. Positioned as a starter motorhome, company literature promises “the lifestyle you have been longing for at a price that meets your budget.”

But the CEO said Winnebago didn’t cut any corners with the more affordable RV.

Happe doesn’t want Winnebago to become the low-price leader in the industry. But he said the brand must do a better job of providing value with lower-priced models.

“We’ll still provide customers the Winnebago story around quality, structural integrity, craftsmanship and customer support,” he said. “But the Class A gas Intent is really a groundbreaking product for us at Winnebago to prove that we can deliver Winnebago character at an affordable price.”
