Reviewing the VS30 Chassis on the 2020 Winnebago Revel

12 Reasons we love the Winnebago Revel

There is so much to love about the Winnebago Revel, a Winnebago Class B Campervan built on the Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis. As a true 4×4, the Winnebago Revel opens up a world of possibilities with off the grid capabilities and complete four-season comfort.

BLUEGREY 3 photo

Designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, the Winnebago Revel takes a no nonsense approach to adventure with straightforward design and function driven features. Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed/Gear Garage.  A full galley, including a 2.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, makes meal prep a breeze, while the all in one bath and gear closet boasts a cassette style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames and snap in screens for fresh air circulation contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability. Add a standard solar power system that is expandable to 510 watts, a dinette with a pull up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the Winnebago Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.

And all of this doesn’t even cover the half of why we love the Winnebago Revel. Below we have the top features we love in the Winnebago Revel.

  1. Taking full advantage of the proven 4×4 Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel puts 325 lbs ft of torque through an on demand 4WD System, complete with high and low range and a hill descent mode for added off road capability. The VS30 Chassis includes on demand 4-wheel drive with low range which selectively stops individual wheels if wheel spin is detected. This system can be safely driven on dry pavement without the risk of damaging differential locks.
  2. An additional benefit of the Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis is the many active and passive Safety Features that come along with it. These safety features include: Active Brake Assist – In case of any oncoming danger, Active Brake Assist warns drivers and if necessary, will brake for them. As a class leading feature, it is the only system that can recognize and respond to pedestrians. Active Distance Assist Distronic – In high traffic areas, Active Distance Assist Distronic keeps enough distance between your vehicle and the one ahead of you to ensure optimal safety. Active Lane Keep Assist – If a driver is ever to unintentionally drift or leave their designated lane, Active Lane Keep Assist immediately alerts them. Traffic Sign Assist – Throughout travel, speed limits can be ever-changing. Traffic sign assist helps to identify the correct speed and adjust accordingly. Blind Spot Assist – Including Rear Cross Traffic Alert:  Blind Spot Assist provides warnings regarding vehicles in the blind spot while Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns about crossing objects when reversing.
  3. The Winnebago Revel is equipped with Automotive Grade Insulation in the Roof, Sidewall and Floor. With an R-Value of 4.4 per square inch, the Winnebago Revel insulation is odor-free and won’t settle as you go off road and in loose terrain. In addition to this the wall insulation is wrapped in a vapor barrier for added protection. Foam laminate insulation is used in the floor of the Revel which provides an in- floor thermal break within the floor insultation. The Revel uses European Style canopy windows with dual pane like properties that include a thermal break and solar reflective property. The Winnebago Revel insulation is built for longevity of the RV.
  4. Storage and living space are maximized with the Winnebago Revel Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch cross coach sleeping surface with a 140 cu. ft. Gear Garage below.
  5. The Winnebago Revel has Heightened Ground Clearance with a shortened passenger side running board so that no modifications need to be made to the exhaust. This additional ground clearance allows you to more easily get in and out of remote locations without the worry of causing damage due to your Winnebago Revel.
  6. The Winnebago Revel has a Power Sliding Cargo Door with Keyless Entry and Interior Control Buttons making getting in and out of the side door of the coach a breeze.
  7. The Winnebago Revel has an optional Performance Wheels Upgrade Package with BF Goodrich TA KO2 all terrain tires LT245/70R17, featuring a longer tread life in dry pavement conditions, with aggressive all terrain traction perfect for gravel, rocky and snowy conditions.  The Method 701 wheels include bead grip technology to seat the bead while running with lower air pressures, a reinforced inner lip, and are one piece cast 356 aluminum with T6 heat treatment
  8. The Winnebago Revel is available with the optional Coleman Mach 10 Non-Ducted Quiet Air Conditioner which is 6-8 decibels quieter than previous models.
  9. The Winnebago Revel is equipped with a digital, thermostatically controlled Hydronic Espar Heat and Hot Water Source, with a diesel burner using the main diesel tank to heat a glycol mixture that is circulated thru heat exchangers for coach heat, and flow adjusted continuous hot water.  This also then heats the freshwater and gray tanks in subfreezing temps.
  10. The MBUX Infotainment System in the Revel makes trips more enjoyable with the Sprinter’s multitude of sophisticated MBUX infotainment optional features, including an oversized 10 inch touchscreen, wireless charging, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.  This Infotainment System also Includes advanced GPS navigation built right in and MBUX Hey Mercedes voice guidance and artificial intelligence services. The MBUX system can be controlled with on system controls and steering wheel controls.
  11. 11. The Winnebago Revel Roll-Up Side and Rear Screen Doors are already attached to the Revel so you just need to unhook and zip down to get them in place. The magnetic sides on the screen doors allow you to quickly get in and out of the coach while your screen is down and also secure your pet from getting in and out with Velcro closures. The screen doors provide air flow and eliminate pesky bugs from getting inside your coach. The rear coach roll-up screen includes a full shade rolling all the way down with a screen window for visibility. This screen also provides security from people seeing what is in the gear garage of your coach when the rear doors are open.
  12. The Revel has an All Metal Roof Rack and a detachable, movable Ladder. The ladder allows access from various exterior locations around the coach.

These above features, include the many features we love in the Winnebago Revel.

The power and durability behind the Winnebago Revel on the Mercedes Benz VS30 Chassis coupled with its function-fueled design, powered by the reliability of a 3-liter turbo diesel engine and the freedom of on-demand 4WD…means off-road is never off the table.

Top Questions from our Webcast on the 2020 Winnebago Revel

Winnebago’s Class B Van Lineup: Winnebago Solis, Travato, Revel and Boldt

 

 

 

Top Questions on Winnebago Class B RVs

We recently held a webcast covering the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about Winnebago’s Class B lineup – Winnebago Travato, Revel and Boldt. You can watch the webcast here.

Read our top questions from the webcast below –

  1. In terms of the Truma System, can I use it to heat my coach when I don’t have water in the coach? Yes, it can be used if the RV is winterized.
  2. Are all Winnebago B-Vans 4-Season RVs and what does that mean? As of today, all campervans from Winnebago are four-season. While that is a loose term, for us can you use this in cooler temps? Winnebago has added automotive-grade insulation to all of the campervans and has fully enclosed pressurized water lines. The Travato and the Boldt have heating pads on the holding tanks allowing guests to dump the tanks in sub-freezing temperatures, while the Revel has a cassette toilet.
  3. How do these vans come from the OEM – Mercedes-Benz and Ram – Is Winnebago improving the insulation or any other improvements? The chassis will come as a shell, with exposed sheet metal. Winnebago adds all the insulation and builds the interior components of the campervan. Winnebago is an accredited upfitter of Mercedes-Benz and Sprinter which allows them to add functional windows, unlike some competitors.
  4. Why is my lithium pack not charging? The shut down temperature in the Pure3 system is 37 degrees and if it hits there the lithium pack will not charge.
  5. What has the best ground clearance? The Winnebago Revel has 8” of ground clearance and the Winnebago Travato has 7” of ground clearance.
  6. What is 4WD offered in? The Winnebago Revel (standard 4WD) and it is optional on the Winnebago Boldt.
  7. What are the key differences between the Winnebago Boldt and the Winnebago Era? Why is the Boldt more expensive? The Boldt has the Pure3 lithium system while the Winnebago Era has the Cummins-Onan LP generator is the key factor that drives the cost.
  8. What is the best campervan if I want to bring several passengers? The Travato and Revel have seatbelts for four while the Boldt has seat belts for up to 6.
  9. What is located under the bench seat in the Travato 59G? In non-lithium Travato it houses the freshwater tank, in the lithium Travato it houses some of the Pure3 system components.
  10. What are our guest’s overall experiences with homeowner associations (HOA) on campervans from Winnebago? Overall, they are favorable. Winnebago uses automotive-grade paint with sleek exteriors that do not look like your typical RV. We have guests that pull the small exterior graphics – like the Winnebago logo to really make the van look stealth.
  11. Will the new Eras have similar insulation to the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will.
  12. What is the timeframe on the Winnebago Solis? We are expecting our first Solis at the end of January 2020.
  13. How easy is it to use the pop-top in the Winnebago Solis? It is very easy to use!
  14. Will the Era have the same chassis options as the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will have the same creature comforts and safety features as the Winnebago Boldt.
  15. Can you use Sumo Springs on the Boldt? Yes, there are options from SumoSprings on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. However, it is one of the most comfortable, best-riding vehicle Winnebago has made.
  16. Can you install a muffler for the generator? They are typically called a resonator. They improve the exterior noise of the generator.
  17. Can I sleep with the bed in the Winnebago Revel half way up? Yes, you can use it in any position.
  18. How does grade-braking work on the Boldt? It uses the power of the transmission to assist in your braking.
  19. Where do we see the Winnebago Solis entering our lineup? We think it is a new segment based on the features. It is built to be rugged and durable with the underscore being simple.
  20. What is the fuel economy between the chassis offerings? The ProMaster is about 16 – 18 mpg and the Sprinter is typically seeing 18 – 21 mpg.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion Are Great RVs

What’s New in the 2020 Winnebago Revel

Introducing the Winnebago Boldt

Return to LichtsinnRV.com

What Exactly is the “Crucial Engine Break-in Period”

A major advantage to buying your new Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV – the #1 Winnebago Dealer in North America is our proximity to Winnebago’s Motorhome Division in Forest City, Iowa. Our dealership is located 1 mile from Winnebago Industries, so if you buy a Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV you don’t have to worry about whether a delivery driver ate, drank, or lived in your brand-new RV before you could.

A dealer that is more geographically proximate to you might not tell you about how crucial the first 1,000 miles is for engine break-in because your Winnebago could arrive with 1,000 miles or more on it before you even step foot inside the coach. The chassis manufacturers have recommendations for breaking in the engine. When you purchase from Lichtsinn RV you can control the critical break-in period and not leave it up to a delivery driver towing their personal vehicle across the country.

The manufacturers recommend –

  1. No towing for the first 1,000 miles
  2. No full throttle starts for the first 1,000 miles
  3. Use varying speeds every couple hours to seat the cylinders in the new engine

When you purchase a Winnebago from a geographically proximate dealer, the Winnebago was driven, by a transport company, from the motorhome factory in Forest City, Iowa (where Lichtsinn RV is Located) to the dealer. While your RV is in transport, the driver will often tow a personal vehicle behind it – violating the manufacturers’ first recommendation for engine break-in protocol. As for the other two – no full-throttle starts and using varying speeds – you can not be certain that good or safe driving techniques were employed during the transportation process.

Winnebago Revel in Transport

At Lichtsinn RV, you will not have to worry about how your engine will be broken in because you will be the one doing it!

The Mercedes-Benz MBUX System

Debuted in 2018, Mercedes-Benz’ MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) is a revolutionary infotainment and multimedia system in both the automotive and recreational vehicle industries.

The MBUX system is both an infotainment and multi-media system that can be activated by voice controls. Similar to Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri, the MBUX system is activated by a driver stating, in natural language, “Hey Mercedes.” The MBUX system is powered through artificial intelligence, so it is able to learn about the users driving preferences and create a better, more tailored experience for the driver. MBUX will learn your preferences and present them to you through a suggestions panel

IMG_9763

In addition to voice command, the MBUX system is accessed through the 10″ widescreeen touch screen in the cockpit that offering built in navigation, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Users can control the MBUX infotainment center through the new touch screen buttons located on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. The cockpit also offers wireless charging for cell phones and devices.

IMG_9760

The MBUX system provides  notifications to drivers from the VS30’s enhanced safety features including –

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.

When TechCrunch, a technology-focused publication, reviewed the MBUX system they said, “In the end, MBUX is that rarest of beasts: A first-party infotainment system that’s exciting, powerful and extremely well-crafted from a technology perspective.”
