Since 1958, Winnebago® has been the gateway to go beyond the beaten path to discover the places that allow us to rediscover ourselves. And with overlanding making hearts pound, Winnebago has done more than keep up. They embrace the innovation that gets you where you want to go with comfort and ease.

The New Winnebago Revel

Winnebago launched the first Revel® in 2018. And backcountry adventurers fell in love. Never ones to settle, Winnebago keeps pushing the boundaries of off-grid, off-road travel and the new Revel has emerged. Built with their legendary quality, it’s the ultimate ready-to-go, go-anywhere adventure van.  

This mobile basecamp is built on the all-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz® Sprinter chassis with a 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine delivering over 330 foot-pounds of torque to take on unruly terrain.  

But the folks at Winnebago know it doesn’t stop with the drive-train. They understand the essentials of adventure travel. So, a revamped rooftop cargo space with custom side rails keeps gear secure. Loading and unloading are easier with a rear-mounted ladder. Night travelers will love the dual off-road 10-inch light bars cranking out 22,000 lumens to light the trails ahead. Off-road, getting stuck is a huge bummer. So, the Revel comes equipped with custom performance wheels and BF Goodrich® all-terrain tires that make off-roading fun – not frustrating.

Heading off-grid used to mean giving up comfort. But not with the Revel. Inside, a modern lounge invites relaxation. There are reclining seats for added comfort, and whether you are working remotely, eating, or playing a wicked game of cards, a bigger wall-mounted table has the space you need. The best on-the-go comforts of home? Good chow. And Revel’s galley makes it possible. More counter space for prep, plus a drop-down exterior table to take it outside with the portable induction cooktop. And since there’s no grocery store off-grid, they’ve included plenty of storage, with soft-close drawers. Compression latches reduce offroad noise and vibration. Even on rough trails, everything stays put.

Nothing stops the good times faster than running out of water. But Winnebago custom-designed and molded a 35-gallon freshwater tank to make the most of every square inch so you can keep the party going. In the Revel, you can even enjoy a nice hot shower after a long day enduring the elements. The flexible wet bath has a middle-split door for more room to move and dry off your wet gear. A removable shelf also functions as an extra storage closet when not in use.  

The ultimate creature comfort? The customer-favorite WinnSleep® mattress technology. A power lift bed serves as a comfy place to crash on top, and a flexible gear garage below with room for all your necessities. Creating comfortable, convenient multi-purpose cabins is where Winnebago truly crushes it.

And now your off-grid adventures can last longer than ever with the Revel’s enviable new Winnebago Power Max system. Fueled by a Lithionics® GTO battery, the Winnebago by EcoFlow® Power Hub Pro is an exclusive 5-in-1 system that delivers unprecedented off-grid power for up to 7 days. Its unique dual alternator approach to high-speed charging optimizes energy, and beats out the competition to maximize driving, idle, shore and solar power.  

To give Mother Nature a little less control over your camping season, the Revel features a multi-zone hydronic heating system with an independent loop sensor to prevent your freshwater from freezing. The combination of 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation with honeycomb flooring and gap-free coverage keep temps comfortable. A touchscreen makes controlling this thermal ecosystem simple.

So, if you’re looking for the freedom to get up and go whenever – and wherever – you want, this turn-key, rugged explorer is the rig for you. Adventurers have trusted Winnebago’s quality and service for over 66 years, and with the new off-grid, off-road Revel, you can go farther and stay longer.
