What exterior colors are available for the Winnebago Solis? 

Both the 59P and 59PX floorplans are available with exterior colors Bright White, Ceramic Gray and Deep Cherry Red.

Are both floorplans available with the pop-top sleeping area?

The Solis 59P and 59PX both come standard with a pop-top sleeping area, complete with the comfortable FROLI® sleep system. You also have the option to remove the pop-top from your order, if desired.

What is the weight limit of the overhead pop-top sleeping area?

The overhead studio loft is limited to 440 pounds.  The ladder to the loft supports up to 220 pounds.  The Murphy+ Bed is also rated for 440 pounds.

Does the Winnebago Solis include air conditioning?

The Solis 59PX features the Coleman®-Mach® 10 NDQ air conditioner with directional vents installed as standard equipment with or without the pop-top.  The 59P has a 13,500 BTU air conditioner as an available option that is only available without the pop-top.

What features make the Winnebago Solis considered a 4-season motorhome?

There are many features that help make the Solis an all-weather, four season RV for year round adventures. A few of these features include the Truma Combi Eco Hydronic Heating and Hot Water System, water lines that are built above the floor within insulated flooring, a heated drainage system and more.

Are both models available with generator? 

The 59PX comes standard with the Cummins Onan® QG 2800i gas generator.  The generator is not available on the 59P but many people use a quiet portable generator to provide additional power for the camper van.

Does the Winnebago Solis have solar power as standard equipment?  Is a lithium power system available?

If you opt for the overhead pop-top studio loft, the Solis comes with a standard 220-watt flexible surface solar panel to recharge the the dual 12V AGM deep cycle batteries.  The non-pop top Solis versions include a 170-watt solar panel.  Either setup is expandable up to 450 watts with additional panels.  A lithium option is not available from the factory, but our service team is experienced in installing aftermarket lithium power systems.

If you delete the pop-top in the 59P or the 59PX, do you get a roof ventilator fan?

Non-pop top units will be equipped with the Maxx Air premium vent system.  The fan is in a sealed marine rain hood so you can leave the vehicle and not worry about rainfall penetration.  It is thermostatically controlled so it opens and operates to cool your RV automatically.

Does the Winnebago Solis include a spare tire? 

The Solis comes with a tire-inflation repair kit as standard equipment but there are aftermarket options to mount a spare tire on the rear doors of the Solis.
