Inspired in development from automotive design experts with focus in quiet performance and aerodynamic design, the Winnebago Journey includes the most insulated front end in the RV industry and provides the quietest ride and quietest living environment. We can’t capture the Winnebago Journey’s sophisticated design in a word. But one thing is for certain, the Winnebago Journey will capture your eye. Winnebago has designed the Winnebago Journey with a revolutionary diesel pusher exterior coupled with a luxury interior including the following features below:
The Journey front end is unmatched in aerodynamic design and includes:
- Tapered 3 degrees to each side
- Sloped front to reduce wind noise
- Curved windshield
Other Winnebago Journey streamlining features include:
- Rear spoiler
- Flush design
The Journey boasts the quietest drive and camping experience of any other Class A Diesel Motorhome. The exterior design in the Journey reduces drag & wind noise for better handling and a quieter drive. You will no longer have to fight the ambient wind noise to have a conversation while driving or fight the generator noise at your campsite. Winnebago achieves this by using NVH material engineered throughout.
Combined with automotive engineering expertise, the Winnebago design team worked tirelessly to remove all points of drag and resistance in the Winnebago Journey.
The seamless design throughout the Winnebago Journey is unmatched even in “7-figure” competitive coaches. The seamless flush design in the Winnebago Journey includes:
- Flush Slides
- Flush Storage
- No handles or other protrusions to disturb airflow
- Flush Mounted Windows
- Flush Entry Door
Driving with an “open view in silence” are two elements that were paramount in engineering the cab experience in the Winnebago Journey. To enhance these elements Winnebago did the following:
The Winnebago Journey boasts 12 degrees more forward-facing panoramic view than the competition!
Leading competitive diesel pushers have as much as 20 degrees of front facing view obstructed by the driver side A-Pillar due to wide A-pillar construction. By contrast, the Winnebago Journey’s front facing view obstruction has been reduced to just 8 degrees. That’s a 12 degree improvement in the panoramic view! This superior panoramic view is achieved with the following:
Curved Windshield and Narrow A-Pillar
- Winnebago is known for their ability to construct narrow A-Pillars due to their proprietary Steel Superstructure construction.
- In addition, the curved windshield pushes the a-pillar rearward enhancing your overall view.
Winnebago uses larger windows than the competition and focuses closely on mirror placement.
Winnebago discovered that competitor brand mirror placement caused several problems so it uses High Mount mirrors on the Winnebago Journey. Using High Mount mirrors resolved the following issues:
- Driver obstruction: Higher mirror placement eliminates road glare from trailing vehicles as experienced in low mount mirrors.
- High mount mirrors also result in less vibration from road travel as low mount mirrors have closer proximity to the road.
- Finally, lower mirror placement obstructs pedestrian or debris view at the mirror height at lower speeds.
The Winnebago Journey has Best In Class “Sight Distance to Ground” at 162″ sight to the ground. Leading competitors have as much as 208″ sight to ground! That is nearly 4 feet worse!
Sight distance to ground is how far out in front of your coach you can see downward, or “see the ground” while driving. A better sight distance means you can see closer to your vehicle and have less obstructed view. This is particularly important while navigating at slow speeds or at stop lights.
SURESTORE – BEST IN CLASS STORAGE SOLUTION
Winnebago designed the Winnebago Journey with the SureStore storage solution that includes several unique features:
The Winnebago Journey boasts Best in Class Overall Storage Space
- 34N – 138 cu. ft.
- 36K – 187 cu. ft.
- 40P – 256 cu. ft.
The Winnebago Journey’s storage bays have a 31″ opening height for storage of tall items. This is at least 7 inches taller than the nearest competitor and as much as 15 inches taller than the worst! The Journey was also purposefully built and designed so that the storage is accessible at a more ergonomic height to prevent the need to bend down so far to access the items you need.
Push Button Access
You won’t see any paddle latches or pull handles on the Winnebago Journey’s storage doors. With the push of a button you can access the weather tight and sturdy storage bays. Each latch mechanism pulls the door shut and cinches it tight to secure it from outside elements. With the automatic soft close design, you won’t need to slam these doors. You’ll be the envy of the RV resort.
Sturdy Side Swing Design
Each door has a side swing design, with sturdy hinges that can stand-up to significant weight and pressure. The Journey’s doors are designed to the same thickness as the exterior wall so that the temperature controlled basement maintains a regulated and desired temperature.
At Winnebago, they test the RV components over thousands of iterations to ensure they are built to last!
