2022 Winnebago Solis Pocket
Looking for the perfect entry point to the #Vanlife movement? Introducing the 2022 Winnebago Solis Pocket, Winnebago’s most affordable camper van. The Pocket is well-equipped for any adventure, with a flexible interior, ample storage, and extended-season camping capability. The compact design of the Solis Pocket allows you to efficiently navigate urban areas and easily park anywhere.
Unlike the other Winnebago Solis models that are built on the 2500 & 3500 Ram ProMaster Chassis, the Solis Pocket is built on the smaller 1500 chassis. The 1500 chassis has a 17′ 10″ exterior length, this is similar to most full-size SUVs on the market today. With a 136″ wheelbase the Solis Pocket is easy to maneuver in the city, fits in a standard parking space, and makes parking a breeze.
With a 3.6L V6 gas engine, the Solis Pocket has a great balance between power and fuel efficiency. The Ram Promaster Chassis also comes standard with the latest safety and convenience features including Cruise control, Digital rearview mirror, Crosswind assist, Power door locks, and Power windows.
The Solis Pocket is only available in one floor plan option (36A). The interior decor of the Solis Pocket is called “Nomad” and features Weathered Teak colored cabinetry, light linen seating fabric, and dark vinyl flooring throughout. Behind the driver’s seat is the dinette, this can easily be converted from a workstation to a sofa, or an additional 25″ x 61″ bed.
Across from the dinette is the galley complete with a 2-burner range top, Stainless steel sink, and 3.0 cu. ft. (12V) single door compressor-driven refrigerator/freezer. A fold-down adjustable exterior table provides additional counter space when cooking or spending time outside.
Unlike other Class B camper vans, the Solis Pocket does not feature a dedicated bathroom inside, allowing for more room throughout the inside of the van. The Solis Pocket does however come with a portable Portable toilet that is stored under rear facing dinette seat as well as an exterior shower.
In the rear of the van is a 52″ x 75″ Murphy bed. The great thing about the Murphy bed is it can easily be folded up when not in use and you have access to additional rear storage. On the floor below the bed is L-Track Cargo Tie-Downs so you can secure bikes or any other gear.
If you are looking for additional counter space, the passenger side bed cushion can be removed when not in use, this is a great alternative workstation to the dinette. The Solis Pocket also has ample storage throughout, including compartments below and above the bed.
When looking at the exterior, you’ll notice, unlike the other Solis models the Pocket does not feature a pop-top roof extension. This allows for the addition of a Coleman-Mach 10 NDQ air conditioner and 170-watt solar panel on the roof.
Because the Solis Pocket does not have an interior shower, a Rod and privacy screen can be used to create a rear annex when the rear doors are open for an outdoor shower. The rod of the annex can also be used to hang wet clothes or your gear after a day of adventure.
Like other Solis models, the Solis Pocket is available in 3 exterior color options. They include Bright White, Bright Silver, and Deep Cherry Red.
