Winnebago Industries Inc. announced the launch of the Solis, a Class B van, and the Voyage travel trailer and fifth-wheel at the during this week’s Elkhart RV Open House.
According to a press release, the Solis features an innovative rooftop extension along with a comfortable “pop-top” sleeping area. Combined with a Murphy bed on the lower level, the Solis can accommodate sleeping for up to four individuals in a compact 19-foot, 6-inch package. The roof raises on hinges and gas springs allowing owners to store their outdoor gear below and sleep above.
The interior features several benefits for RVers including workspaces for digital nomads and several areas that will capture views of the campsite. Zipped window coverings are also a new feature for Winnebago Class B vans and are implemented throughout the coach to block light and provide a thermal break between the glass and interior of the van.
“The Solis offers ‘surf to slopes’ design and can fit in at the beach, the mountains and places in between,” said Russ Garfin, director of product management. “Throughout the coach, we have implemented highly-functional features to create a base camp perfect for a number of outdoor hobbies and passions.”
For beach goers, a rear annex curtain provides a semiprivate space outside of the van to wash off sand and clean up. A rod extending the length of the double doors in the back can also be installed to hang wetsuits, towels and other gear that needs to dry.
For those wanting to hit the slopes, the van offers automotive-grade insulation in the floor, walls and roof and the efficient Truma Combi Eco heating system for quiet even heat throughout the coach. All water lines, water connections and the freshwater tank are all inside the heated area of the coach making the Solis a true candidate for extended-season use.
The all-new Voyage half-ton travel trailer is built for extended stays with features like abundant storage with a drop frame design, 30-inch convection microwave, new True Trax A/C System, and washer/dryer prep on applicable floorplans. Options include a 12 cubic ft. refrigerator and king bed. The Voyage travel trailer has a 7-foot interior height and taller slide rooms for increased livable space.
Other highlights include an enclosed universal docking station to make easy hook-up to cords and connections, and all LED exterior lighting – including backup lights for enhanced safety.
The Voyage fifth-wheel is also available in five floorplans while the line is launching the W-Series chassis with drop frame design and LCI Space Saver upper deck, which improves strength and usability. Like its travel trailer counterpart, the Voyage fifth-wheel also features the True Trax A/C System and home away from home amenities like 30-inch convection microwave, optional king bed, 12 cu. ft. refrigerator, and washer/dryer prep on applicable floorplans.
