The #1 Class C: Winnebago Navion 24G

In our last blog, we talked about our #1 selling travel trailer, the Jayco Jay Flight SLX. This week, we want to talk about the #1 Class C, the Winnebago Navion 24G. This Class C is award winning in its category because of the one-of-a-kind custom built details as well as the overall luxury look and feel. Let’s take a look at what makes this RV a good purchase for a traveling couple or small family, and what makes the Navion 24G one of our top sellers.

The Benefits of a Class C


We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, we love Class C's. Class C motorhomes are a bestseller in North America because of their versatility. The main reason shoppers fall in love with Class C’s is because they offer RVers the ability to fit a full family without the size and limited mobility of a Class A. This means more time spent boondocking and also more campsites to choose from, which saves you money. The smaller size also allows travelers to access more beautiful state parks and harder to reach destinations. Size and capacity are the main reasons RVers choose a Class C, but there are other reasons to choose this style of RV such as:
  • They are easy to drive. If you are a first time RVer, or you haven’t spent much time driving a larger vehicle, a Class C is an easy transition from a large van or SUV. This is because in a Class A, the steering column is in the center of your legs, and the pedals are placed on the right side. Whereas in a Class C, the pedals are in the same position as your car. Plus, with a smaller vehicle, the turn radius is tighter, which makes driving a breeze.
  • They are built closer to the ground. Class C’s are built closer to the ground, giving them two benefits—the first being that they are easier to get in and out of. The second is a lower center of gravity. Class C’s are easier to drive in adverse weather because of their low center of gravity and maneuverability.
  • Class C RVs are safer. The build of a Class C is generally more safe, because the nose allows for more of a crumple zone, whereas Class A motorhomes usually have a flat front nose which creates more of a risk when driving. The overall construction of the cockpit in a Class C is safer because there is more room for the driver in a collision.
  • Engine repair is easier in a Class C. If you need a quick repair on your engine, it will be much easier in a Class C than a Class A. The engine is located in the front, whereas in a Class A, the engine can be difficult to access in the under carriage. Because the engine is in the front, it also makes finding a mechanic on the road much easier than with a Class A.
  • If fuel efficiency is important to you, a Class C is a better option than a Class A. Most Class C motorhomes are much more fuel efficient than Class A motorhomes, which is a bonus for your pocketbook and the environment.
  • Less interior space means less space to heat and cool. Just like buying a smaller house, a smaller RV means that the temperature inside will be easier to regulate.
There are many reasons to purchase a Class C motorhome and if you’re ready to shop the market, the Winnebago Navion 24G should be one of the top motorhomes on your list to explore.

Why We Love Winnebago Industries



Winnebago is an Iowa-based company founded in 1958 with a mission to “create lifetime advocates through a relentless focus on delivering an unsurpassed customer experience.” One of the values we appreciate about Winnebago is their ability to listen to customers and update, innovate and construct floorplans that suit the lives of RVers.

Most competitors don’t have the ability to create custom parts like Winnebago. Winnebago has created a production model that allows for them to have their own furniture line called StitchCraft, as well as their own plastics and wiring divisions.

The StitchCraft process allows Winnebago to make high-quality furniture. Most Winnebago competitors make basic furniture that feels comfortable at first, but breaks down quickly. Because Winnebago has their own in-house furnishing division, the company can create long-lasting furniture to make you feel at home in your RV. As we mentioned earlier, Winnebago listens to their customers and creates what they feel is needed most. If you feel you need a more comfortable bed, or a special seat cushion, Winnebago listens, and can create it. The Navion 24G even has a bed that elevates for reading a book or watching your favorite movie in comfort.

An in-house custom plastics and wiring division allows Winnebago to add even more customization to their RVs. As we will talk about later, the custom plastics allow for Winnebago to curve the plastic on the inside of the vehicle in a special way to create more storage, as well as add a luxury look. Winnebago has also created their own interacting wall joints you won’t find anywhere else. These interacting wall joints ensure there is no “wobbly box”, otherwise known as an unsupported frame. Competitors have to attach cabinets and other pieces on the inside to secure the frame, while Winnebago has found a better solution with their custom interacting wall joint.

When you’re out on the backroad, sometimes you have to service your own vehicle. Maybe it’s just a quick fix and all you need to do is find the right wire. Sometimes, finding that wire is a difficult task—Winnebago has solved this problem through its custom wiring. Winnebago actually labels all of their wiring harnesses, so you know exactly which cord leads to what. Along with labeled wires, Winnebago has accurate shrink tubing. This shrink tubing helps prevent wires from being accidentally disconnect or sparking a fire.

Winnebago has created their own brand with all their own furniture and pieces, compared to competitors who all use the same stock pieces. Now that you know why we love the brand Winnebago and Class C motorhomes, let’s talk about our top selling model, the Winnebago Navion 24G.

The Winnebago Navion 24G



The most important part about the Navion 24G is the chassis. Built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, this Class C provides not only fuel efficiency and mobility, but also power. The benefit to a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter frame compared to a Chevrolet is that a Sprinter body has much more towing ability and power. Also, a Mercedes chassis generally has upgraded features and equipment that comes standard. Throughout the entire Winnebago Navion 24G, you will find innovation and upgraded technology. Plus, this vehicle is very fuel efficient for an RV, with a whopping 14-18 MPG.

The Winnebago Navion 24G has the right amount of space for a small family or couple on the road. It is the perfect size to maneuver national parks, and the fancy features make it one of the most popular coaches in the country. As we mentioned earlier, Winnebago takes pride in listening to their consumers, which is why they’ve designed literally every inch with the consumer in mind. One of the features that customers really love about the Winnebago Navion 24G is all the space added through a unique design change to the bathroom. In the bathroom of the Winnebago Navion 24G, you’ll see a unique rotating sink. This sink moves from over the toilet to into the shower which allows you to have more space in the coach overall.

The floorplan of the Navion 24G is family friendly and can easily sleep 6 people. There is a slide out where the queen bed is in the back of the coach. This slide out provides enough space to fit a 60X75 inch walk-around bed, in a coach that is only 25ft long (a rare find!). The dinette features a very stable table, and converts into a comfortable bed. The bed above the cockpit offers plenty of sleeping space for two people, and features a mattress from Winnebago’s very own StitchCraft.

Winnebago has thought of everything when it comes to the interior of the coach. Instead of basic fabric siding on the interior, Winnebago makes custom plastic pieces for the interior of your vehicle. Not only does this look nicer, but Winnebago has made it possible for you to have storage in every inch of the interior of the motorhome. All windows throughout the vehicle have custom darkening shades—and not just fabric curtains, we’re talking about fancy honeycomb curtains that fully insulate your vehicle. Even the skylight has added detail—with another fancy curtain and a screen to keep the bugs out. Winnebago also provides LED lights throughout the whole interior of the motorhome.

The main space of the vehicle features a beautiful kitchen, with plenty of storage for all of your favorite camping gadgets. There is a double door fridge, double basin sink and an extended faucet for washing bigger pots. There is also a hanging closet and a privacy screen, so that you can separate yourself from the rest of the coach if needed.

We mentioned the unique bathroom with a sink that rotates, but get this—the shower has a self-squeegeeing door. Winnebago even took the pain out of a simple procedure, that's how much they care about their customers. Also, the water inside the Winnebago Navion 24G is the purest, thanks to a system built into the RV. This custom built system makes the Navion easy to weatherize, with a simple station on the side that allows for the water to flow out.

The Winnebago Navion 24G is luxurious, compact, and detailed from the inside out. Now that it’s clear why the Winnebago Navion 24G is one of our most popular coaches, you have to try one for yourself! Contact us today for more information.

Beat the Heat- Air Conditioners for your RV

Summer is the best time of the year to camp, because the kids are out of school, campsites are abuzz with excitement and the clear blue skies make us long for endless nights under the stars. But during a heatwave, there’s no desire to hit the backcountry without an air conditioner.


When you buy new, most RVs and trailers come with air conditioning units. But if you bought used or if you bought a unit that had all the bells and whistles on your list without air conditioning, you can always add a unit later. This week, we are going to talk about the best air conditioners for your RV, and air conditioning basics and maintenance, so you can stay comfortable on the road!

RV Air Conditioner Basics


It is important to understand BTU’s (British Thermal Unit), the unit used to measure the strength of the air conditioner. Most new RVs come with 13,500 BTU AC units, which is important to remember so that you can determine what strength works best for your lifestyle.
When determining what strength of air conditioner you should purchase, first ask yourself how often you plan to use the air conditioner. If you only need it sometimes, look for an air conditioner under 13,500 BTUs. However, if you are looking to run your air conditioner more often, and absolutely can’t stand the heat, you should look for an air conditioner over 13,500 BTU.

Ductless vs. Ducted



Most RV air conditioners are roof-mounted, and they typically come as either non-ducted or ducted units. You’ve probably seen non-ducted air conditioners in the past, since they are the ones on the ceiling and many of them have had vents installed by the manufacturer. These types of RV air conditioners often have vents that you can open or close to change the airflow throughout your vehicle. Ducted units, like non-ducted A/Cs, are installed on the roof as well. Ducted units are generally quieter as they are bolted to the roof of your vehicle, but they don’t usually have a control unit on the ceiling inside. This means that you’ll have more headroom inside your RV, and you can install several units if you have a larger vehicle or plan to travel in particularly hot weather.
Ductless air conditioners are generally more expensive but they distribute the air more evenly, while ducted units keep the air more contained in one area, and work well for Rvers who rarely use air conditioning units.

Consider the Size of Your AC Unit

You may want the biggest, strongest, fastest air conditioning unit for your RV, but it is important to keep in mind that the bigger the unit, the heavier and taller your RV becomes. If you are the type of RVer that enjoys the back road, or might need to park in places with height restrictions, it is important to choose an air conditioner that doesn’t add much height to your RV.
Consider the size of your vehicle as well, because if you have a big Class A motorhome, you should consider purchasing two units. This will help disperse the hard work of one air conditioner, and it will keep the vehicle cooler.


Solar Power



More and more RVers are using solar power because it allows for them to go completely off the grid, has environmental benefits and will help your air conditioner run more efficiently. When you run your air conditioner on full blast 24/7, it can use large amounts of power and it will strain your generator. Solar power will work great in this instance because it will back up your generator, and provide enough power.

Tips for Success


Living with air conditioning in your RV is different from air conditioning in your house. In fact our friends at Gone With the Wynns, wrote an entire blog on air conditioning in your RV, because they have found several different pro-tips while living with air conditioning. Here are some tips to keep you cool and comfortable on your next adventure.
  • 1. Stay in the shade. The more you keep your RV shaded, the less energy you will use, and the cooler your RV will stay.
  • 2. Invest in good shades. The key to keeping your RV cool is to make sure the cold air stays inside and stays cold. Invest in some good shades to keep in the dash of your motorhome and darkening curtains or shades for the windows in your RV.
  • 3. Avoid using air conditioning while driving the vehicle uphill or driving for long periods of time. This will keep your vehicle from overworking and overheating. If your vehicle does end up overheating, turn the air conditioning off and turn the heater on, this will help get the hot air off the engine.
  • 4. The fan is your best friend- Install or buy an RV fan that will circulate the air, and can easily turn on and off. You can also purchase a cheaper fan for the inside of your vehicle, or a window fan. At Guaranty, we offer a variety of fans that can be purchased or we will install them for you.


The Best Air Conditioners


Atwood- Atwood creates an efficient, sleek product. The low-profile design will not add height to your vehicle, which allows for you to explore more of the back roads. Atwood is the leader in the RV air conditioning market because the products are extremely durable and are known to last years. Plus, these air conditioning units come with a 2-year product warranty.
Gree - Gree is one of the world's largest air conditioning manufacturers. These products go through a rigorous testing process, with over 20 different data points. These air conditioners come with a great warranty that protects the compressor for 5 years and a full factory warranty for 2 years.
Advent - Advent has an effective, quiet unit that is a popular air conditioner among shoppers.These rooftop air conditioners have been designed to withstand harsh climates.The fan has three different speeds, which means you can get the level of comfort you want.
Dometic- Dometic air conditioners have been engineered to be aerodynamic and reduce drag while your RV is in motion. Dometic has an outstanding reputation in the air conditioning industry because they were one of the first brands to make air conditioning units. Shoppers love Dometic air conditioners because they have a wide variety of different products which allows for flexibility in the type of air conditioner that you purchase.
Every brand is different, and at Guaranty we would be happy to help you shop for the perfect air conditioner for your vehicle. To check out our full stock of air conditioners please check out air conditioner related items on our parts website.

Maintenance


It is important to familiarize yourself with your air conditioning unit after installation. This will help you understand what parts need to be maintained on your air conditioner. Here are some tips for maintaining your air conditioner so that hitting the road in the summer heat is a breeze!
  • Clean the fins- Just like in your house, the fins of the air conditioner will collect dirt and debris from the road. It is important to clean the fins of the air conditioning unit.
  • Make sure the fins are flat- Sometimes the fins of the air conditioner bend, and it is important to make sure these fins are straightened or else it will affect the air conditioner's ability to effectively cool the RV.
  • Keep an eye on the outside condition- When you run routine checks on the roof of your RV, you should also check on the outside of your rooftop air conditioning unit. Are there any cracks? It is important to keep the outside of the unit properly sealed to protect it from the elements and harsh weather conditions.
  • Leaks- Check out the unit for any type of leak or water intrusion.
