Winnebago Freightliner DRIVETECH System

With so many RV manufacturers out there, how do you narrow down the right manufacturer and then the RV that is right for you? An important question to understand is what kind of company stands behind your RV. Winnebago Industries was incorporated in 1958 and since that time has been a leader in the RV industry. With a focus on Quality and Innovation Winnebago’s Customer centric approach is one that continues to make it a leader in the RV industry.

One of the many Innovations that Winnebago uses is the Freightliner Custom Chassis (FCC) DRIVETECH  System.


DRIVETECH is the most advanced display and control system in the RV industry. It is the first RV driving system to prioritize safety by putting every command in one easy-to-reach location. The ergonomic steering wheel and column-mounted controls are paired with OptiView’s all-digital gauge display to create a more automotive-like feel and set the industry standard for luxury RV driving.

DRIVETECH Features include:

OptiView All-Digital Instrument Cluster – Designed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, OptiView features an anti-glare display with adjustable brightness and an easy-to-read interface with clear fonts, colors and menu structure.

Left-Hand Steering Wheel Controls/Menu – Use the controls on the left side of the steering wheel to access an extensive menu of coach data including: Trip 1, Trip 2, Gauges, Fuel Economy, Adaptive Cruise Control, Vehicle Configuration and Diagnostics. The vehicle configuration menu includes Bluetooth status, dash brightness, cruise control settings and standard and metric unit selection.

Left-Hand Column Controls – Use these controls to command all standard operations for safe driving, including windshield wipers, headlights and turn signals, consistent with an automotive experience.

Push-to-Start Button – Push-to-start functionality makes startup a breeze.

Right-Hand Steering Wheel Controls – Right-hand steering wheel controls feature hands-free phone operation, automotive-like cruise control buttons and marker light interrupter control.

Right-Hand Column Controls – These controls command transmission control, the manual shift option, driving mode selection and engine brake.

The Freightliner Custom Chassis DRIVETECH system can be found in Winnebago Forza Models.

Winnebago’s use of the latest in safety technology is just one of the many reasons why Winnebago is the Motorhome manufacturer of choice for many RVers.
