Winnebago Vita Review

To date, Winnebago Vita has just been around for 2 years. But it has been getting good reviews from the RV community so far.

Many users appreciate the fact that this RV is just the right size to take on the road. They feel comfortable using it because the size isn’t too intimidating.

This diesel pusher in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis is reliable. It gets the job done and takes you to many places you want to go to. It averages 16 to 18 mpg so it’s fuel efficient and that means more savings for you!

It has a well-structured power and electrical system. With Vita’s 2 100-watt solar panels, 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter, and a Cummins Onan® MicroQuiet™ generator, you’ve got enough power to allow you to stay awhile in remote areas while enjoying all the comforts of home.

The floor design is very spacious for couples or a small family. There’s enough sleeping room and multiple storage areas to keep your travel stuff organized.

On the downside, some owners find the kitchen counter space to be quite small. There’s just room for only 1 person to work on the kitchen. Other users find the toilet too small and low making it uncomfortable to use. But they say that these aren’t deal breakers because they still love their Vita.

Pros

  • comfortable to drive
  • fuel efficient
  • enhanced livability
  • off-grid camping
  • plenty of useful storage

Cons

  • The counter on the kitchen is quite small.
  • The toilet is small and low.

The Verdict

A Class C motorhome with a diesel powered engine and best in class features for less the price, truly Winnebago Vita is a class of its own. It adds life to your road adventures by making sure that you have everything you need to make you safe and comfortable wherever you go. It obviously had to do away with all the hullabaloo and just offer simpler and more practical features but in the end, it sealed the deal. We don’t need much, only what matters most. You need to hurry though as something this good only comes in limited quantities.
