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?
