Winnebago Products on the NEW Mercedes-Benz VS30 Chassis

Winnebago released 4 products on the new and innovative Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis – including the Winnebago Class C Diesel staple, the View and Navion, the wildly popular Winnebago Revel, and the brand new Winnebago Boldt. Learn more about these products below.

Winnebago RevelNow with the 3rd generation Mercedes Benz Sprinter VS30 chassis, the true 4×4 Revel opens up a world of possibilities with off the grid capabilities and complete four-season comfort. Winnebago Revel

Designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, the all new Winnebago Revel takes a no-nonsense approach to adventure with a straightforward design and function driven features. Taking full advantage of the new VS30 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0-liter turbo diesel puts 325 lbs. ft. of torque through an on-demand 4WD system, complete with high and low range and hill descent mode for added off road capability.

Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed with a 140-cu. ft. gear garage below. This allows for a 49 x 79-inch cross coach sleeping area.  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. Add a standard solar power system that is expandable to 510 watts, diesel powered Espar hydronic heating and hot water, a dinette with a pull up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the new Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.

Storage and living space are maximized by the flared body and Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch sleeping surface. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames, dual pane windows with insulated shades, snap in screens for fresh air circulation, and an available quieter Mach 10 NDQ AC system all contribute to the Revel‘s off the grid livability.

This Revel is powered by the innovative, fuel efficient Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter, with interior aesthetic upgrades, like what is in the Mercedes S Class luxury auto:

  • On-demand 4WD with low range, to selectively stop individual wheels if wheel spin is detected. The system can be safely driven on dry pavement without the risk of damaging differential locks. The 3.0-liter, six-cylinder turbo diesel provides 325 lb. ft. of power and the seven-speed automatic transmission with grade braking capabilities provides users with plenty of power to get off the beaten path.
  • The MBUX infotainment center makes trips more enjoyable with the new Sprinter’s multitude of sophisticated MBUX infotainment optional features, including an oversized 10-inch touchscreen, wireless charging, USB and USB C connections, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Includes advanced GPS navigation built right in. The MBUX system also includes “Hey Mercedes” voice guidance and artificial intelligence services. The features of the MBUX system are activated through the new touch steering wheel controls and MBUX Touch Control Buttons: touch sensitive controls on the steering wheel for instrument cluster and infotainment system control, like a smart phone interface, which respond to vertical and horizontal swiping movements.
  • The new VS30 chassis features several safety features not included in any previous RV chassis. 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 your 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

“Toy Story 4″ Themed Winnebago Vita Visits Forest City Theatre

Toy Story 4 Themed Winnebago

Recently, a Toy Story 4 themed Winnebago Vita was parked outside the Forest Theatre in Forest City, Iowa celebrating the opening of Toy Story 4. In Toy Story 4, Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody’s slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they’re worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.

Go RVing is teaming up with Disney and Pixar in celebration of “Toy Story 4” to launch an integrated marketing campaign to inspire RV travel that takes family and friends on unforgettable adventures – just like Bonnie’s family and the “Toy Story 4” friends. RV road trip adventures are as much about forming unbreakable bonds as the travel itself. Now in its 22nd year, Go RVing challenges Americans to ‘find their away’ and pursue their passions more frequently when they travel by RV.

Minnesota Vikings Foundation “Vikings Table” Food Truck Built by Winnebago Industries

This summer children experiencing food insecurity in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region could access a meal from a new food truck supported by The Minnesota Vikings Foundation in partnership with Xcel Energy. Built by the Specialty Vehicles Division of Winnebago Industries  in collaboration with local food truck operators Tony and Haley Fritz, the new community outreach vehicle is dubbed “Vikings Table.” Its aim is to help tackle hunger, while engaging children and families with the Vikings NFL sports team up close and around home nutrition education. This is the first commercial kitchen produced using the Winnebago commercial shell vehicle platform.

This summer children experiencing food insecurity in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region could access a meal from a new food truck supported by The Minnesota Vikings Foundation in partnership with Xcel Energy and Winnebago Industries.

“Vikings Table is a new and important program of the Vikings Foundation’s greater mission, which has always been to advance the well-being of youth through engaging health and education initiatives,” said Vikings Executive Director of Social Impact Brett Taber. “Approximately 250,000 children in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area are missing meals during the summer months. We’re excited to partner with other non-profit organizations and leverage the power of the Vikings brand to bring people together in the fight against hunger.”

While the food truck is serving lunch, children can also visit an indoor section of the vehicle, designed by the Minneapolisexperiential marketing agency STAR. In the experiential room, families can learn more about the Vikings, and its foundation through graphics and videos. The space will also provide nutritional education for families to implement at home.

Built on a Winnebago Commercial Vehicle Platform, the 38 foot Vikings Food Truck features a Freightliner MC chassis, which weighs less than 26,000 lbs and can be driven without a commercial driver’s license. The commercial kitchen is designed to hold as many as 10 food preparation professionals when parked. The kitchen features all NSF certified appliances and work surfaces, as well as meets all Minnesota state and Minneapolis municipal codes for a commercial kitchen.

“A great amount of human centered design and engineering went into proper weight distribution and serving ergonomics to get this commercial kitchen up and going,” said Ashis N. Bhattacharya Vice President, Strategic Planning and Development at Winnebago. “We are excited to see the possibilities of this vehicle, with or without the commercial kitchen, as it could help partners address food insecurity for families across the country.”

Winnebago Built: Azdel Composite Fiberglass

Winnebago uses Azdel Composite Panels in its fiberglass manufacturing, an environmentally friendly and lightweight composite panel, in the construction of the sidewalls in Class A Gas, Class A Diesel and Class C motorhomes.

WATCH OUR VIDEO ON AZDEL COMPOSITE FIBERGLASS HERE

Azdel Composite Panels have been used in RV exterior and interior sidewall, ceilings, and roofs since 2006. The panels are manufactured using a cutting-edge, patented blend of polypropylene and fiberglass to create a strong, lightweight, quiet, weather and temperature resistant, odorless and environmentally friendly wall that will increase the life of your RV.Azdel Onboard Cutaway

With twice the insulation value, excellent strength and half the weight of wood, Azdel composite panels increase the durability and lighten the weight of your motorhome. Azdel’s reduced weight keeps fuel costs down while its superior insulation decreases heating and cooling costs as well as absorbs road and outside sound to provide a quieter ride.

Azdel compared its water resistance to luan, the underlayment plywood used in competitor RVs, and found that luan displayed mold and the beginning of delamination after 51 days of water exposure and the Azdel panel was 100% unaffected. Some RVs sit through six months of winter, subjected to freezing, thawing, heating and repeating the cycle with the potential for water seeping into the wall. This damage occurred in less than two months.

 

 

Azdel Onboard versus Lauan

How does delamination affect your RV? Have you ever seen an RV with bubbling along the sidewalls that looks like an air bubble under contact paper? That’s delamination – the wood is separating from the outer layer and can no longer support the structure. Water seeping in has soaked the wood. This along with freezing, thawing and hot temperatures causes it to decompose and loosen adhesive bonds. Because of the moisture/water presence, mold and mildew are formed or accelerated during this process. What you don’t see can make all the difference – in the support structure of your walls, road noise, and comfort level inside your rig, the air quality your family breathes, and the longevity of your RV.
