What Winnebago Era Floorplans are available?

Answer: The all-season Winnebago Era is available in 3 floorplans, the Winnebago Era 70A, the Winnebago Era 70B and the Winnebago Era 70X. 

The Winnebago Era 70A features rear twin beds measuring 29”x75” each. These beds can be converted into one large bed measuring 68”x75” with the flex bed system. The 70A has a driver side centrally located 24”x43” wet bath and a sofa bed with pedestal table. The driver and passenger seat each swivel to become an integral part of the living space and can join the sofa seating with the expansive pedestal table that reaches each.

The Winnebago Era 70B has a large in-line kitchen and a 2nd row captains chair. The driver and passenger seat each swivel and can join the captain chair seating area with the movable pedestal table.  The 70B has a passenger side centrally located 24”x43” wet bath. In the rear of the Era 70B you’ll find a powered sofa bed that can be reclined into a bed measuring 70”x77”. During the day it is a sofa bed and includes 3 safety belts.  The space below the sofa bed allows for exterior storage that can be accessed from the dual rear entry doors.

The Winnebago Era 70X is very similar to the Era 70B. The difference is the 70X has (2) 2nd row captain’s chairs, allowing comfortable seating for 4 in the front of the Era. The in-line kitchen in the 70X is slightly shorter than in the 70B and the kitchen storage space is reduced to allow room for the additional captain’s chair.

Is there a Winnebago Era with a slideout?

Answer: There is not a current floorplan Winnebago Era that includes a slideout. A previous floorplan, the Winnebago Era 70M did have a slideout but was discontinued as Mercedes discontinued the chassis it was built on that could support the slideout.

What is the Difference between a Winnebago Era 170 vs. 70?

Answer: There is no difference between the Era 170 vs. the 70 and other reiterations you might see in the floorplan names. The reason you see both is simply the different language the factory employees use to refer to the Era vs. how the floorplans are actually marketed to the public.
