8 Reasons We Love the Winnebago Vita

Winnebago Vita vs. Winnebago View

The Winnebago View, the Winnebago Navion and the Winnebago Vita are each built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel Chassis. Each are equipped with 200-watt solar panels that come standard with each model and are expandable for additional solar power to help keep their 2 deep-cycle, Group 31 RV batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use.

In addition, the Winnebago View, Winnebago Navion and Winnebago Vita provide extended off-the-grid functionality with best-in-class holding tanks and generator. Go off-the-grid for longer with these models with holding tank capacities of 30-37 gallons of fresh water (dependent on floorplan), and 41 gallons capacity for black and gray tanks. Each is powered with the 3,600-watt Cummins Onan® MicroQuiet LP generator. The Winnebago View and Navion offer an optional 3,200-watt Cummins Onan® Diesel generator.

Each of these models also provide comfortable sleeping for up to 6 people. They feature the Super Shell Sleeper Deck. The superior design of the Super Shell strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks.

But that is where the similarities end. See below the difference between the Winnebago Vita and the Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion.

View-vs.-Vita

WINNEBAGO VITA

Base Price: $125,171

Floorplans – The Winnebago Vita is available in 2 floorplans, the 24F and the 24P. Winnebago has consciously made expansive galleys in the Vita, and even the bathroom door of the 24P gives extra space in the bathroom once closed. One of the main differences between the two floorplans is where the slide is located. In the 24F, the dinette is in the slide and in the 24P, the bed is in the slide.

Galley – The well-planned galley area of the Winnebago Vita includes many of the comforts of home including a double-door 7.3 cu. ft. residential Refrigerator/freezer, a 3-burner range top w/glass cover and a lighted spice rack.

Exterior Storage – You will not run out of storage in the Winnebago Vita! The Vita was created with full-timers in mind. The Winnebago Vita 24P has 45-cubic-feet of exterior storage while the 24F has 42-cubic feet.

Interior Height – The Winnebago Vita floorplans have an interior height of 7’. Both the 24F and 24P floorplans can sleep someone up to 6’4’’ (even at the dinette, thanks to the hidden bonus leg room space)!

Coach Length – The exterior length of the Winnebago Vita measures 24’ 5”.

OCCC (Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity) – The new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that 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.

Customizable Storage – The Winnebago Vita features customizable storage including the pantry and linen cabinet. The pantry features removable rods and shelves to customize the space to your needs. This allows you to use it as a food pantry or a closet of clothes, or for whatever fits your needs. The linen cabinet of the 24F provides additional and easily accessible storage for towels or other supplies.

Power  – The Winnebago Vita includes a 1,000-watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter to safely power electronics in your RV.

Having a gas cooktop will allow you to cook your meals while dry camping, and an induction cooktop allows for more energy efficient cooking. Lighted In-Drawer Cabinets.

Interior Height – The Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion have an interior height of 6’8”.

Coach Length – The Exterior of the Winnebago View and Winnebago Navion measures 25’ 6”

OCCC (Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity) – Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000 pounds of OCCC.

Top Questions from our Webcast on the Winnebago Vita

We recently held our monthly interactive webcast on the Winnebago Vita and Porto. You can watch our webcast here. Below are the top questions we received during the webcast about the Winnebago Vita.

February Webcast on the Winnebago Vita and Porto

What is the difference between the Vita and the Porto?
Nothing. They are both built by the same people, on the same lines, with the same quality materials. They offer the same options and standard features and are the same price.

What are the benefits of the OCCC in the Vita related to competitors?
OCCC is how much stuff, water and people you can carry in your RV. The Vita and Porto offer up to 1,600-lbs. Some competitors, like the Forest River product only offer 600-lbs of OCCC which once you get your people and water on board you are at max capacity.

Where do the Vita and Porto fit in the Winnebago compact coach line-up?
The Vita and Porto are built on the same chassis as the current (2019) Winnebago View and Navion. The Vita and Porto are Winnebago’s offering of the Mercedes-Benz Class C Sprinter Chassis at a more entry-level price.

What are the optional features in the Vita and Porto?
Exterior Paint Option – Canyon standard graphics, Canyon deluxe graphics, Pacific standard graphics or Pacific deluxe graphics
Diesel vs. LP Generator

Should I get a diesel generator?
In our experience, the pre-owned Views and Navions we receive with diesel generators typically have less than a 100 hours on them. So if you take the upfront expense of about $4,000 – you would pay $40 – $50 an hour to run your generator. And diesel generators do not offer any additional resale value over LP generators.

Why are the options so simple in the Winnebago Vita?
Winnebago made many of the features in the Winnebago Vita standard – and the competitors either don’t offer the feature or they cost an additional fee. Like the standard 200-watts of solar, the 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, and the electric stabilizer jacks.

What is the MPG rating of the Vita and Porto?
Conservatively 16-18 MPG based on the testimonials of the Winnebago View and Navion owners that have the same chassis as the Vita and Porto. The Vita and Porto are lighter than the View and Navion so there might be some additional fuel efficiencies gains versus the View and Navion.

What are the new, innovative features in the Winnebago Vita and Porto?
– SuperShell Sleeper Deck – The strong, lightweight SuperShell Sleeper Deck provides added thermal and acoustic insulation.
– Roof Access Wiring Port – allows for the addition of WiFi boosters, cell boosters and other technology without having to cut a hole into the roof of your coach.
– Fresh Water Manifold System – eliminated hundreds of connection ports for increased water pressure and minimizes water consumption.

What are the tank sizes in the WGO Vita and are they heated?
Both floorplans have the same tank sizes with 37 gallon fresh water tank capacity and 41 gallon black and gray tank capacities. And no they aren’t heated, but our RVDA/RVIA certified technicians have the abilities to make them heated by adding the heating pads.

How fast does a compressor refrigerator – like the one in the Vita – drain the batteries on a cloudy or snowy day?
Very little. Very minimal draw off the batteries. The compressor refrigerator was field tested with only group 24 batteries (the Vita has larger, group 31 batteries, solar and the 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter) and the batteries lasted 42 hours.

Do the windows slide in the Vita?
Yes – they do slide open and the large windows allow for great fresh air ventilation. The Vita has a sealed MaxxAir fan, the galley has a roof vent, and the bathroom has a powered ventilator fan.

Does the Vita come with front privacy shades?
The Vita does come with front privacy shades that aren’t like the cab curtain that prohibits front cab seat usage.

When will the Winnebago Vita be available?

Winnebago Vita 24P Receives RV News Best of Show Award

Winnebago’s type C Vita 24P upgrades the over-cab area with extra insulation, both to provide more warmth in colder weather and to ensure a quieter ride. Below the cab bunk and its 49-by-87-inch bed, the driver and and passenger seats swivel so that users sit at eye level when having face-to-face conversations with others in the RV.

Winnebago Vita

The full wall slide on the driver’s side of the vehicle is uncommon on a type C. The Vita’s interior is open and spacious in a noteworthy way. The slide runs from the dinette behind the driver’s seat back through the rear bedroom. Another benefit to the expansive slide is the addition of two additional feet of exterior storage compartments, elevating total exterior storage to 40 cubic feet.

As in many RVs, the dinette transforms into a bed, but in the Vita 24P, Winnebago designers placed cubbyholes on one end to extend the dinette bedding’s length, letting taller consumers stretch out comfortably.

The kitchen features European-style cabinetry, a 7.3-cubic foot residential compressor-style electric refrigerator and microwave underneath the stovetop. The new microwave placement resulted from customer feedback about commonly spilling hot food on the cooktop because of the microwave’s height. Rather than being simply wired for solar, the 24P  includes 200-watt solar panels as standard equipment. The Vita’s two standard onboard batteries and larger-than-average storage further accommodate off-the-grid usage.

The stabilizer jacks extend the 24P’s ability to overnight in terrain more rugged than a perfectly flat concrete pad. The coach is also less than 25 ft. to address tight parking in state and federal campgrounds.

Standard outside features include a powered patio awning with LED lights, exterior lights at crucial hook up points, an attachment on the running board for dog leashes or bicycle locks and a backup camera.

The Vita 24P is built on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis offering between 18 and 20 MPG fuel efficiency, and is 24 ft. 7 in.

What impressed RV News: The 24P offers unusually robust off-the-grid readiness for a type C. The full-wall slide opens up the interior impressively, and the overall look and quality of the interior shouts, “Winnebago.” The coach should meet consumers’ expectations for the legacy brand.

Open House: RV Industry Gets “Smart”

If there is an overriding theme at this year’s RV Open House in Elkhart, Indiana, this week, it is technology. The smart RV is no longer talk of the future; the smart RV has arrived.

“The industry is definitely moving in the direction of the smart RV,” states Sam Jefson, public relations specialist for Winnebago Industries, which introduced ASA Electronics’ iN-Command system on some of its 2019 offerings. With the iN-Command system, RVers can control RV functions, such as climate control, slide outs, awnings and lights, as well as monitor batteries, holding tanks and auxiliary fuel, from an app on their smart phones.

Jefson says Winnebago has rolled out the technology with its travel trailers, which tend to be used by a very tech-savvy demographic, but adds he fully expects all units to eventually be similarly equipped.

Winegard is making tech headlines as well as more OEMs prewire their units for Winegard ConnecT 2.0. Some companies are also making this technology standard on their rigs.

WATCH OUR LIVE WEBCAST ON CELLULAR AND WIFI BOOSTERS FEATURING THE WINEGARD CONNECT 2.0 WIFI EXTENEDER HERE.

Designed specifically for the mobile environment, the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 WiFi Extender + 4G LTE is a long-range, high-performance WiFi extender that increases the range of accessible WiFi hotspots, well beyond the range of a typical smart device. The product uses its multiple, built-in smart antennas to scan and connect to WiFi signals, rebroadcasting them in and around the camp site. The 4G LTE model can also connect to nationwide 4G LTE when WiFi is not available, ensuring reliable, uninterrupted, in-motion and stationary coverage. Users can stay connected to family, friends, web content, entertainment, and now their RV.

The 4G LTE ConnecT 2.0 model is now certified with AT&T and Verizon as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot, and RV enthusiasts can either add it to their new or existing data plan by simply swapping out the included SIM card or choose Winegard ConnecT’s data plan, which features no-contract, 30-day plans with no data throttling, so users only pay for the time it’s being used.

At last week’s open house, Winnebago introduced the Vita and Porto: A compact Class C diesel built on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis. Both products are equipped with best in class storage, tank sizes and carrying capacity. Other features include a new quiet, durable Supershell composite sleeper deck, a new prewired track and roof panel for Wi-Fi and cellular boost antenna systems and industry leading off the grid capabilities.

Reports Jefson, “We are seeing a great interest in being off the grid. More and more people seek a product they can take pretty much anywhere. But they want to be off the grid and still be able to run their appliances.”

This can be seen, he says, in the popularity of Winnebago’s Travato 59KL and 59GL, which were introduced at Winnebago’s Dealer Event in March. The Pure3 Energy Management System powered by Volta Power Systems ­­is a powerful, durable, and easy-to-use lithium system.

SEE OUR BLOG POSTS, VIDEO LIBRARY AND MORE ON THE WINNEBAGO TRAVATO HERE.

Under 200-lbs. the three-module automotive grade energy pack provides 8,700-watt hours. It is watertight and durable; and the steel housing is safe. The 59KL and 59GL come standard with a powerful inverter – a 3,600-watt pure sine inverter – bringing 30 amps of power wherever you are. Travatos also have a dedicated 58-volt alternator, or under hood generator. A simple analog gauge changes color to let users know how much energy is remaining with just a glance.

“The lithium ion battery is really exciting technology,” Jefson states. “You can imagine the options it opens up if you are not tied to a campground.”
