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.
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.
