Who Needs a 4X4 RV?
This isn’t your grandparents RV industry. The RV industry continues to expand its offerings based on customer demand, and as the customer base widens so does the demand for new and inventive vehicle design. There are many ways to enjoy the RV lifestyle but not every RVer enjoys parking a 40-foot diesel pusher in a luxury campground. An increasing number of outdoor enthusiasts have embraced RV camping as a more comfortable base camp for exploring the great outdoors. These folks are more concerned with where the kayaks or bikes go than how many flat screen TVs the RV has, and until now they had very little option. Enter our good friends at Winnebago! Winnebago has been leading the industry in quality and innovation since their founding in 1958, with countless awards and accolades to prove it. The 2018 Winnebago 4X4 Revel is a perfect example of award winning innovation and quality construction. Voted the RV Pro 2018 Best in Show this no-nonsense adventure machine is long on innovation and quality. Built on the proven 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, with a powerful 3-liter turbo-diesel engine that provides 325 foot-pounds of torque to the on-demand 4WD system, featuring a high/low range mode for added off-road capability, means your chassis and power plant are some of the highest quality and long lasting available.Couple that with the RV design and construction quality of Winnebago and you have a true 4X4 RV that opens up a world of possibilities.
The Perfect Off-Grid Camper
As we mentioned before a growing segment of RVers are not content to leave the hustle and bustle of daily life only to park ten feet from your neighbor in a manicured RV park. Limited options often relegated this group to a 4X4 truck with a cab over camper, a tent trailer, or a modified utility trailer. None of which are ideal solutions to remote camping. Lack of gear storage and lack of creature comforts made these options incomplete. The other issues off the grid campers faced were power and fuel consumption.
A traditional RV has an electric power system and uses LP gas to heat the unit and to heat water. The Winnebago Revel does not use LP in any manner; instead it uses its electrical system and the Espar hydronic heating system for hot water and coach heat. The Revel is a diesel powered Class B motorhome and the hydronic heating uses that onboard diesel fuel to heat a glycol mixture that is then circulated through heat exchangers that provide a highly efficient heating and hot water system, even in sub zero temperatures. Being a Winnebago vehicle the engineers have even run the glycol system past the heavily insulated holding tanks to keep them from freezing. The Espar system is extremely efficient, in fact the Winnebago folks tested the system for 24 hours in 25-degree weather and it only consumed roughly a gallon of diesel fuel. To the outdoor enthusiast this means that now camping can be a year round prospect and the absence of LP gas makes the Revel safer in rugged terrain. Another benefit is you are now only concerned with one fuel source eliminating the need to break camp to fill up the LP even though you aren’t done camping. The electrical system is also an example of the intelligent design Winnebago is known for. A 200-watt solar panel array, 3 deep cycle AGM maintenance free 105amp hour batteries, and a 2000-watt inverter create a system that provides clean 12v and 110v power through out the coach. The balance of consumption and replenishment of power by the solar panels is nearly perfect, allowing worry free camping for long periods of time. That’s just the inside, the exterior features of the Revel also play a significant role in making it the off grid camper. The Mercedes Sprinter 4X4 chassis provides greater ground clearance and the optional all terrain TA’s from BF Goodrich ad another full inch.
The roof rack and ladder system allow for nearly endless gear
and toy storage options and if you still need more room,
the rear garage area provides an additional 140 cubic feet of storage when the power lift bed is raised. There are even built in tie-downs and a one piece, heavy duty, vinyl flooring for easy clean up.
Still not enough room for your stuff? Maybe try less stuff or use the powerful Mercedes diesel engine and the 5,000lb rated hitch to pull a trailer.
Inside, the Revel features a full galley, including a 2.5-cu. ft. compressor style refrigerator, and a surprising amount of counter space provided by the built in sink cover and the counter extension.
The combination gear closet and all-in-one wet bath boasts a cassette-style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank and the need to drive the entire vehicle to the dump station. You can simply remove the toilets built in holding tank, much like a porta potty, and use a dump station or a gas station bathroom in a pinch. Add a dinette with a pull-up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the new Revel: quite simply the most off-road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.
Why Winnebago, and Why a Winnebago from Guaranty RV Super Centers
Spoiler alert, it’s because we are both awesome! Guaranty and Winnebago go together like peanut butter and jelly, or chocolate marshmallow and graham cracker for our Campers out there, and we have been proud to sell the Winnebago product for over thirty five years. Winnebago is one of the largest independent RV manufacturers in the world with decades of experience making high quality and durable vehicles. Guaranty RV Super Centers is the largest single location independent RV dealer on the West Coast with decades of experience helping RVers get the most out of their RV and the RV Lifestyle. The longevity of both company’s should provide peace of mind that there will be support if for some reason you need technical advice or vehicle repair, and the shared philosophy of customer service as priority one means owning a Winnebago from Guaranty doesn’t make you a customer it makes you part of the family. And, as if you needed another reason, remember that here at Guaranty RV Super Centers “We Don’t’ Just Sell Fun, We GUARANTY It!”
