Winnebago Era Weight Ratings

Once you have your Winnebago Era, it’s time to get ready to pack for your first trip. Before you do so, it is important to know the following weight ratings to ensure you do not “overfill” your new RV.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight Rating – This the weight of the Winnebago Era with only a full tank of fuel. This rating may vary based on optional content. It will be approximately 9,146 – 9,453 lbs.

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) -This is the total weight of all cargo which includes all of your gear, you, and the freshwater tanks full. This is approximately *1,577-1,884 lbs. on the Winnebago Era and will vary by optional content. *To find the exact OCCC of your Era, see the orange sticker inside the passenger side door.

The unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity = the Era’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). 11,030 lbs. 

Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) – This is the absolute maximum weight of the  Winnebago Era + any trailer or vehicle towed behind it. GCWR is the unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity+ any towed vehicles (GVWR + any towed vehicles. )15,250 lbs.

Towing Capabilities – The Era has a factory installed 5,000 lb. tow package. However, keep in mind if your RV is fully loaded, using all of your OCCC, up to a full GVWR of 11,000 lbs. that you are still limited to the GCWR of 15,250 lbs. So, your trailer or towed vehicle should not exceed 4,220 lbs. (GCWR 15,250 – GVWR 11,030.)  

Some additional weights you may see if you were to weigh your Era are the gross axle weight rating for the front axle and the rear axle which are 4,410 lbs. and 7,720 lbs. respectively.

With the efficiency of a camper van coupled with the efficiencies of a diesel RV and the optional enhanced capability of 4WD, the Era Class B Diesel motorhome from Winnebago will allow you to tour in style and camp in comfort.

Truma Combi Eco Plus Heating System in Boldt, Travato and Era

The Winnebago Boldt vs. the Winnebago Era

Winnebago’s Class B Diesel Lineup

 

 

Winnebago Sprinter RV Toilet 101

We’ve all traveled.  And when traveling, you’re bound to need to use the restroom at some point during your trip. And let’s face it, public bathrooms are sometimes, actually more often than not, less than desirable.

The good news is, when traveling by a  Sprinter Chassis RV you’ll never again need to enter an public bathroom.   It’s all right there for you in your RV.  You’ve earned the luxury of having your own private space to go.   The security of knowing this will come to a clean, safe and successful end.

The Winnebago Motorhomes built on the Sprinter Chassis: The Revel,  Boldt, Era and the View/Navion Series all have bathrooms, but that’s where the similarity ends.

Winnebago Sprinter Toilets
Winnebago Revel Toilet

The Revel was the first Winnebago RV to utilize a cassette toilet.  A cassette toilet pairs the comfort of a permanent toilet with the convenience of a portable black tank.  You can even carry a spare if you want to stay off-grid longer.

The convenience of the “mobile”  5-gallon cassette allows you to easily transport the tank to empty its contents at gas stations, campground dump stations or any other public restroom.

Simply remove the cassette from the locking side compartment, unlatch the handle and roll it to the dumping station.  Nice and easy.  No mess.

Revel Cassette Toilet
Revel Cassette Toilet

The other Winnebago Sprinter Chassis motorhome models use traditional black waste storage tanks.  They are mounted under the RV and you use a sewer hose to connect them to dump station facilities.

In the Winnebago Boldt 70BL you can store up to 24 gallons of black tank waste and the Boldt 70KL floorplan holds up to 16 gallons.  The freshwater, grey and black holding tanks in the Boldt are double insulated tanks with heating pads to ensure they don’t freeze so you can use the Boldt (including the toilet) in colder weather.

The Winnebago Era is about the same size as the Boldt but the black water storage tanks are not as large.  The Era 70A holds 8 gallons, the 70B and 70X floorplans offer 9 gallons black waste tank storage capacity.

These Class B Sprinter RVs: Winnebago Boldt, Winnebago Era and the Winnebago Revel, each have bathrooms that are wet baths.  This means the toilet is located in your shower area/room.  That also means your toilet always stays clean.   There’s even a handy sprayer to make sure of it! (Wouldn’t it be nice if your toilet at home had that?)

Winnebago Sprinter Toilets
Winnebago View 24J Toilet and Sprayer

The Winnebago View/Navion bathrooms are full sized bathrooms, with the toilet located separately from the shower as you would find in a residential house.

All Winnebago View/Navion floorplans hold an ample 41 gallons of black waste.

The View/Navion 24J and 24V offer the cool comfort of a porcelain toilet while the 24D has a composite toilet.

While we prefer you not actually “test out” the RV toilets at the dealership, it is certainly important to know what you are getting into when purchasing a Sprinter Chassis RV.  Know you’re Sprinter RV toilet options. They are much better than a public bathroom!

With the Winnebago 4×4 Revel – built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis – its time that RVers start treating roads more like suggestions.

Top 10 Reasons to Buy a Winnebago Class B Camper Van

This month we are going to focus on Winnebago Class B Camper Vans. 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 often even a wet bath. Winnebago offers a number of Class B vans with both diesel and gas chassis.

Class B Top 10

There are a number of reasons people choose a Class B Camper Van. See the Top 10 reasons people choose a Winnebago Class B RV below:

WINNEBAGO CLASS B RVS

  • Go where you want when you want to. Class B’s are easy to maneuver whether you are in the big city or wide open country.
  • Easy to Drive. Class B Camper Vans handle much like a family vehicle.
  • Allowed in many HOA’s (Home Owner Associations.) A Class B RV may be allowed in your HOA while most Class C, Class A and towable RVs are not.
  • Full Living Amenities. Although Class B Camper Vans are compact, Winnebago Class B RVs feature all the amenities of home including a kitchen, sleeping area and bath area.
  • High Fuel Efficiencies. Winnebago Class B Vans achieve between 16-22 MPG highway, similar to your family vehicle.
  • Simplifies Travel. A Class B RV is compact, so you are limited on what you can bring with you so you can travel light.
  • Favorite for those with Active Lifestyles. Class B Motorhomes have dual rear entry doors, and it easy to take your gear in and out of the rear of the coach. Some Class B’s like the Winnebago Travato G/GL and the Winnebago Revel have ample room to put your large gear (i.e. a bicycle) in the rear of the coach.
  • Doesn’t require a lot of set up and take down. A Class B Van has little to set up outside of the coach and does not require leveling jacks, so set up and take down are a snap. You can just park your RV, put out your awning (if applicable) and you are ready to head out for a day of adventure.
  • Great for Day Trips and Special Events. Even if you are just using your Class B RV for the day (i.e. tailgating before the big game) a Winnebago Class B allows you to bring your own snacks and beverages, bathroom and you can charge your phones and tablets while you take a quick nap.
  • Among the Safest RVs on the Road. A Winnebago Class B Van is built on a standard van chassis that includes many of the safety features you are used to in your family vehicle such as seatbelts in the living area, reinforced sidewalls and premium insulation.

Winnebago Class B Touring Coach Motorhomes offer all the versatility and comforts of home in an agile ride with impressive fuel efficiency, Call a Lichtsinn RV Sales consultant today to find out more about Winnebago Class B Camper Vans.
