Winnebago Introduces the Lithium-Powered Travato 59KL and 59GL

At Winnebago’s Dealer Event in March, the Travato 59KL and 59GL, powered by lithium ion, were introduced. The Pure3 Energy Management System powered by Volta Power Systems ­­is the most powerful, durable, and easy-to-use lithium system in the industry! ­


Under 200-lbs. the three-module automotive grade energy pack provides 8,700-watt hours. It is watertight and durable; the steel housing is the safest on the market. The 59KL and 59GL come standard with the most powerful inverter – a 3,600-watt pure sine inverter – bringing 30 amps of power wherever you go. The Travato’s dedicated 58-volt alternator, or under hood generator, is twice as powerful as competitors. Its compact design keeps it out of the way of curbs and road debris and the auto-start and high-idle control significantly extends air conditioner run time.

The Winnebago and Volta team included the best automotive grade electrical connectors and wiring harness to ensure trouble-free operations and one simple analog gauge that changes color to let you know how much energy is remaining with just a glance.

The MPPT solar controller provides best-in-class solar absorption, up to 30 percent better than competitors, giving you more off-the-grid performance. The Travato 59KL and 59GL come standard with 200-watts with ports to plug-in additional panels.
