The new Winnebago Revel upgrades key features to improve off-grid viability, and makes it easier and more comfortable to use anywhere. It’s still built on the AWD Mercedes Sprinter with a Turbo Diesel, 9-speed automatic, and 144″ wheelbase. But the rest is updated and improved. Here’s what’s new…
The exterior is available with solid paint or graphics and other aesthetic packages. Small area lights are above the rear windows, and an electric awning is available as an option for the passenger side.
The roof rack has custom marker lights and two LED off-road lights built in pumping out a massive 22,000 lumens combined.
The roof is accessed by the rear ladder…
…which has accessory mounting points on an upper panel. Rugged step boards are an upgrade from standard models, but doubtful they’ll work as rock sliders.
If you’re going to take it off-road, add the optional BF Goodrich T/A KO2 all-terrain tires with custom Revel rims. And maybe add a skid plate on your own.
Revel interior & kitchen
Inside is a two-seat galley, providing four seats in all. The kitchen area has a mini-fridge underneath, plenty of latching cabinets, a stainless steel sink, and spice rack. It’s a laminate countertop, so pack a cutting board, but…
…the included single-burner induction cooktop is portable, so you can move it outside to a fold-down table in nice weather.
A wall-mounted table is new, and both front seats swivel around for small gatherings. An optional front cap air mattress can add an extra spot for sleeping inside.
Bed, bikes & beyond
The bed raises up during the day to increase open space, and lowers at night (or nap time)
Under the bed is plenty of gear storage with six L-track bases for attaching various mounts or racks to keep things organized, bikes upright, etc.
Rear and side screen door slides keep bugs out and make egress quicker and easier than loose-mount magnetic screens.
They don’t list the curb weight, but the Winnebago Revel has a GVWR of 9,050lbs, so there’s probably at least a 1,000lb gear allowance.
Power & control
A control panel gives you access to comfort features like heating, and a second Winnebago Power Max screen shows the status of the EcoFlow Power Hub Pro and 8.4kWh Lithionics GTO battery system.
Up top is a 220W solar panel to keep things topped off. Winnebago offers a second 8.4kWh battery pack to double up (16.8kWh total), giving you enough power for up to seven days of off-grid boondocking.
Floorplan, pricing & availability
The wet bath measures 31″ x 26″ and has a 5-gallon cartridge toilet. The sinks and shower are fed by a 35-gallon freshwater tank and funnel into a 21-gallon gray water tank. Both are heated to avoid freezing during winter outings. You’ll still need to use the included kit to winterize it when you’re not using it, though.
They use 3M Thinsulate insulation with gap-free coverage and a “high-tech honeycomb composite flooring” to aid temperature regulation. A multi-zone hydronic heating system warms in the winter, and an optional roof-top A/C unit can replace the ceiling vent fan.
The 2024 Winnebago Revel start at $245,463 MSRP, but as it typical in the RV industry, dealers are listing them at about $90,000 off list price.
