2018 40J Features and Options

This is a great local, one owner trade, a 2018 Winnebago Journey 40J, in which the previous owners were nonsmokers, did not have pets in the RV and it comes backed not only with a clean vehicle history report, but the balance of all applicable remaining warranties.   After falling in love with the RV lifestyle, the previous guest decided to go to an even larger RV!

Remains under the balance of remaining warranties:

1.  Freightliner chassis warranty thru September 2020 or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first

2.  Cummins warranty thru September 2022 

3.  Complete Winnebago Carefree Diesel Days warranty thru September 2020 or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first 

Winnebago Carefree Diesel Days!  We are pleased to announce Carefree Diesel Days, an extension of the confidence in the quality for Winnebago diesel pushers!  At Winnebago, innovation isn't limited to our cutting edge products.  We also lead in after sale service support.  So while some manufacturers such as Tiffin District Service Centers are turning coaches older than 4 years away from their service facilities, Winnebago will be there for you, today, tomorrow and for years to come.  This program extends the Winnebago warranty on our diesel pusher lineup --  all built on Freightliner chassis -- to an industry-leading 3 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.  Winnebago has always stood behind its products, and for anyone who is concerned about service, this program clearly demonstrates the confidence we have in our diesel pusher lineup!

Step up your diesel game with the Winnebago Journey and its acclaimed Maxum Chassis. With 229 cubic feet of exterior and basement storage and increased towing power to 15,000 lb, there are no limits to your next adventure. When it comes to your favorite music, turn up the volume on available JBL 11-speaker Premium Cab Sound System. A full-wall slideout with opposing front living and bedroom slides provide room for features like a full bath and one half, the Rest Easy sofa and a complete Samsung home entertainment system. Your Journey has arrived. The destination is up to you.

But what you’ll remember is the uncompromising performance of the revolutionary Maxum Chassis, which is now boosted further with the ISL Cummins being utilized on the 40J and further with V Ride rear suspension.  The design and engineering of the V-Ride, which is in use in heavy-duty applications, features “v-rod”-shaped upper control arms that help dissipate suspension forces through the crossmember and frame rails. In addition, the V-Ride’s transverse beam is directly integrated with the trailing arm to form a single-piece U-shaped assembly. This unified design, combined with the v-rod control arms, the manufacturer noted, significantly reduces sway and provides a more stable ride – especially in instances when a vehicle’s tendency is to lean or drift outward, as when traveling around a curve.  The V-Ride maintains superior roll stability and more predictable handling.

Inside, you’ll appreciate the Aqua Hot hydronic heating and hot water delivery system, which functions off of the diesel burner or electricity.
