Introducing the 2021 Winnebago View 24D

Winnebago View vs. Winnebago Navion

Winnebago Motorhome Quality – Four Simple Questions to Ask Before you Buy an RV

 

Sprinter Platform On the Rise

Article Originally Appeared on RVPro

Russ Garfin, director of product management for Class B and C motorhomes at Winnebago Industries, still vividly recalls back in 2006 when he showed the company’s first Sprinter-based Class C to his district sales managers.

“That was our first serious effort at a more European-style of a Class C motorhome. They all liked it but were nervous whether it would sell or not. They all said that’s pretty cool-looking – but it’s too expensive,” he recalls.

“‘It’s fun to have something new, but who’s going to buy it?’ they asked,” he says now.

Winnebago’s View and Navion – the first Class C’s ever built on the Sprinter chassis for the North American market – did attract buyers and stood for years as the top-selling brand in their class.

The rest of the industry eventually began building on the Sprinter platform and slowly caught up, however, necessitating a new review of the market. The result of that review at Winnebago is a new series comprised of the Vita and Porto, built on a Sprinter chassis that is 13 inches shorter than the View/Navion and retails for some $25,000 to $30,000 less.

“We’ve given customers another choice,” Garfin says simply. The difference between View/Navion and Vita/Porto is basically in the level of amenities offered between the two products.

“Something we still do better than anybody else is we provide more carrying capacity, so whether it’s a Vita or Porto or even a View or Navion, if you equip them the same as competitor coaches, you’re always going to find more carrying capacity in a Winnebago motorhome and that’s because we design in weight savings.

“Our styling on the 2020 View and Navion is gorgeous with all-new walnut and white interiors and an all-new front cap,” Garfin says. “From top to bottom, we’re second to none as far as appointments and in comfort.”

How will these new brands fare in the current marketplace?

“I think it was the right decision, but it’s too early to say how successful it will be,” says Garfin. “A lot of people shopping for a Winnebago motorhome on a Sprinter chassis are going to consider a new View or Navion first before they look at anything else. It’s going to take a little bit of time for the new brands to build some momentum, but we’re seeing that. We’ve made quite a few upgrades to the interiors and the exteriors on the Vita and Porto since we launched it with options like full-body paint, theater seating and hydraulic leveling jacks, which are well-received features. It really did change the position on our dealers’ lots.”

By the start of 2020, Winnebago Sprinter brands were gaining traction in the marketplace, Garfin stresses. “We are confident we will grow our share.”

Like all RVs, floorplans are king. Leading the way for Winnebago is View and Navion’s 24D floorplan, the No. 1-selling Sprinter floorplan in North America, featuring a full-size slide with a Murphy bed.

“People really like the openness of that full-size slide. When the Murphy bed is up, you have a couch and a big, U-shaped lounge so you have lots of seating and dining choices,” Garfin says.

Following the 35th Annual Florida RV Supershow in Tampa in January, Garfin reported, “We saw excellent response to our new Sprinter products, retailing the new Boldt, Vita and View models starting with the first day of the show. Our Sprinter sales well surpassed our sales at this show last year.”

“The View and Navion created the Sprinter market here – and even though the market has a ton of more competitor models, with everyone looking to mirror Winnebago’s success – we are now gaining momentum with our new products and we expect Winnebago’s identical sister brands the View and Navion will continue leading the market going forward,” Garfin says.

 8 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano

Top 10 New Features in the 2020 Winnebago View

 

How to Winterize a Winnebago View

Your motorhome is equipped with a manually operated waterline winterization system for your convenience in winterizing fresh waterlines. The system features a Winterization (diverter) valve with an antifreeze siphon tube to draw nontoxic RV water system antifreeze into the waterlines. There is also a Water Heater Bypass valve to avoid filling the water heater with antifreeze. Leave Water Heater Bypass valve in NORMAL FLOW position if draining water and blowing out waterlines. Place in BYPASS position ONLY when using antifreeze solution in waterlines.

Watch our video on how to winterize a Winnebago View here. 

  1. Level the Motorhome. If the motorhome is not level, there may be “low points” in waterlines that can trap water in the lines and prevent it from draining properly.
  2. Drain Fresh Water Tank and Waterlines. Open all waterline drain valves and drain fresh water tank.
  3. Drain Exterior Shower/Wash Station. Open exterior shower knobs and lay shower head on ground to drain any water left in the shower line. Also, place the tip of your finger into the city water inlet and gently press the backflow valve “button” in the center of the inlet to drain any water trapped in the inlet line. Remove Water Filter
  4. Cold Water Filter: Remove the filter canister from the Cold Water Filtration System under the galley sink and discard the filter cartridge. After emptying the canister, remount it onto the filter assembly and continue the Antifreeze Fill Procedure.
  5. Drain Water Heater (Tankless): Turn the Water Heater Power Switch (located behind water heater access panel on exterior of the motorhome) to the OFF position and allow hot water to cool down.
  6. Open the latch with your thumb while pulling the Easy Drain Lever down as far as it will go.
  7. Remove the water inlet filter and clean with clean water. Leave the water filter inlet removed until the Winterization process is complete or the system is placed back in use. Set Up Winterization Valves
  8. Turn Winterization Valve 1 to BYPASS position (to avoid filling water heater with antifreeze). Water Heater Power Switch (Located behind water heater access panel on exterior of the motorhome) Easy Drain Lever (Located behind water heater access panel on exterior of the motorhome) Latch Easy Drain Lever
  9. Remove and save the protective cap from the end of the antifreeze siphon tube (save cap to cover tube after use.)
  10. Insert the end of the siphon tube into a pail or container with 2 to 3 gallons of non-toxic RV antifreeze solution.
  11. Turn Winterization Valve 2 so that it points to Winterize (Syphon). NOTE: Ensure that all drain valves are CLOSED before pumping RV antifreeze into the water system. Fill Lines.
  12. Turn the Water Pump switch ON.
  13. Open each hot and cold water faucet handle/ knob in the motorhome – one at a time each in turn until antifreeze solution just begins to flow from the faucet, then close. Do not forget exterior shower/wash station knobs (if equipped).
  14. Press the toilet flush pedal and hold until antifreeze begins flowing into the toilet. Leave a small amount of antifreeze that remains in the bowl.
  15. Turn Winterization Valve 3 from “Normal” position to “Line Drain” position to allow water and antifreeze to flow through the recirculation line. Note: antifreeze will drain outside of the coach during this step.
  16. Turn Water Pump switch OFF.
  17. Turn Winterization Valve 3 to “Water Heater & Line Drain” position to allow all remaining water and antifreeze to leave the system. Leave the valve in this position until the Winterization process is complete or the system is placed back in use.
  18. Turn Winterization Valve 2 so it points toward Normal. This will stop the flow from the antifreeze siphon tube and revert the tank line flow to the water pump.
  19. Replace the protective cap onto the end of the antifreeze siphon tube to keep out insects or debris when not in use. Fill Drainage System P-Traps
  20. Pour about one cup of RV antifreeze down each drain for the galley sink, lavatory sink, and shower/tub. This fills the drain trap pipes to prevent holding tank odors from entering the motorhome during storage. Dump and Clean Holding Tanks
  21. Completely drain the sewage and waste water holding tanks at an approved waste disposal site. Drain the sewage tank first so the following waste water can rinse any waste solids from the dump outlet and sewer hose.
  22. Close dump valves and refit the dust cap onto the drain outlet. This will inhibit rust formation on valve shafts and prevent entry and contamination by airborne debris, insects, and rodents.

8 Reasons Why the View is Better than the Delano

The first reason why we think the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity of the View and Navion. OCCC is an important specification to understand before you buy your motorhome. The OCCC label is required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to ensure that buyers know that weight of passengers and cargo they can safely carry. Vehicle safety systems like tires, brakes and collision avoidance all may be compromised when the loaded motorhome weight exceeds the chassis weight rating. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, personal belongings, and the weight of any fresh water you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV. The Thor Delano has an OCCC of 349-lbs. while the Winnebago View and Navion have an OCCC range of 1,100 – 1451-lbs. That is OVER 300 PERCENT MORE OCCC in the View and Navion compared to the Thor Delano.

Watch our video on the 8 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano here.

Our second reason why we think the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the one-piece fiberglass roof in the View and Navion. The View and Navion come standard with a one-piece fiberglass roof on top of a laminated block foam insulated superstructure that is backed by over 60 years of proven durability and a 10-year parts-and-labor roof warranty. The fiberglass roof in the View and Navion is can be walked on and is stronger and more durable to outside conditions. The Delano comes with come with a rubber or TPO roof that is made from a cheaper glued and screwed construction to wooden trusses that can degrade over time. TPO roofs also require increased maintenance and regular repair to prevent roof degradation. Fiberglass roofs require lower maintenance and are more user-friendly.

Our third reason why we the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the solar power system in the View and Navion. The Winnebago View and Navion come with a best-in-class solar package including two 100-watt solar panels, a battery charger with controller, junction box, and plug for additional portable solar panel on the side. The View and Navion also come with a 2,000-watt pure sine wave inverter to safely power electronics. The Thor Delano comes with a single 100-watt solar panel and a 1,000-watt inverter. So… the Delano comes with half the solar power and half the inverter.

Our fourth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the sleeping configurations in the View and Navion. The View and Navion are available in three, unique floorplans with various sleeping configurations created to best suit your needs. The floorplan sleeping configurations include a POWERED Murphy+ Bed in the 24D, twin beds that convert into cross coach sleeping measuring at 74 inches wide and 87 inches long in the 24V, and a corner bed that makes room for a large corner bathroom. The Delano comes in three floorplans, but two of the floorplans – the 24RW and the 24TT come with an extremely heavy flip-down bed that has to manually lowered into the sleeping position. Our next reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is also related to sleeping.

Our fifth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the SuperShell Sleeper Deck in the Winnebago View and Navion. The new SuperShell sleeper deck includes premium thermal and acoustic insulation, making the front bunk lighter and more comfortable than ever before. The SuperShell Sleeper deck also provides great space for storage when it isn’t being used as a bed. The Delano comes with a generic cabover bunk that was not engineered with the same level of thermal and acoustic insulation as the SuperShell Sleeper Deck in the View and Navion.

Our sixth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the custom, automotive-grade entry door. In previous model years, Winnebago always had a best-in-class entry door on the Winnebago View and Navion. Winnebago took the best-in-class entry door to a whole new level with the custom-designed, automobile-grade entry door designed in Europe specifically for the Winnebago View and Navion. The new door is extremely sturdy, very similar to a car door, with dual latching points that greatly reduce wind and road noise. The inside of the new door features a sliding shade and in-door storage perfect for umbrellas, shoes and other outdoor gear. The Thor Delano features the typical 3rd party manufactured door that is often seen in entry-level trailers and RVs.

Our seventh reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is the View and Navion’s superior off-the-grid capabilities. A compact coach is the ultimate freedom vehicle and the last thing you want is to be tied down to a traditional campground. The View and Navion feature 2 large Group 31 batteries, large freshwater tanks, best-in-class holding tank capacities, and a Compressor Refrigerator. The View and Navion also have optional lithium ion smart batteries available. Winnebago designed all of these features into the Winnebago View and Navion to provide users with extended off-the-grid functionality – like never seen before in a Winnebago View or Navion. The Thor Delano has a smaller inverter, one small  house battery, and smaller holding tanks. Overall, the Thor Delano is not well equipped for camping outside of a traditional campground. With the View and Navion anywhere can be your campground.

Our final reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are Better than the Thor Delano is Winnebago’s superior experience building RVs. In Winnebago’s 60 years of building RVs they have pioneered several constructions standards that are now industry standard. Winnebago was the first RV company in the US to manufacturer compact RVs and Campervans. Why buy an RV from any other manufacturer?
