Travato vs. Revel

Looking for a compact, agile camper van for your next adventure? The Winnebago Travato and Revel are two of the most popular Class B motorhomes on the market. Choosing between the Travato and Revel comes down to personal preference and your lifestyle, below are some of the features that make each one unique.

Travato

The Winnebago Travato has been one of the most popular class B motorhomes, and there’s a good reason for that. Since it’s launch in 2014 the Travato has been at the forefront of the camper van movement. Built on the Ram ProMaster chassis with a 280-hp, 3.6L V6 gas engine, the Travato provides a great blend of power and fuel efficiency.

Two floor plan options are available (59G, 59GL, 59K, 59KL) with the “L” signifying the Lithium powered model. The 59K model features twin beds, and with Winnebago’s Flex Bed System can be combined to make one 54″x76″ bed. The 59G model has a rear 46″x 77″ bed than can be folded up to make room for your gear. The front dinette also converts to provide an additional sleeping area.

Pure³ Advanced Energy System

One of the main features that sets the Travato apart from other Class B motorhomes is the Pure3 Energy System. This option on the 59KL and 59GL models allows you to spend more time off the grid and less time being connected to shore power. The 48V automotive-grade lithium energy storage pack provides hours of energy, and powers all coach appliances. The Pure³ system is hassle-free and works with the push of a button.

Revel

Looking for a class B motorhome that is off-road ready? The Winnebago Revel 4×4 is designed for those who want to take the path less traveled. Unlike the Travato, the Revel is built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis and features a 3.0L 6-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, a perfect blend of power and fuel efficiency.

Built with the outdoor enthusiast in mind, the Revel has a rugged exterior and off-road capabilities that really set it apart from other Class B vans. The Revel goes where most RVs can’t thanks to the On-demand 4 wheel drive, Performance wheels, and BF Goodrich® T/A® KO2 all-terrain tires. A 230-watt solar power system also comes standard to keep the 3 deep cycle Group 31 AGM batteries charged when living off the grid.

The Revel’s is only available in one floor plan option (44E). The unique feature of the Revel is the 49″x79″ rear powered lift bed. After a day of adventure, simply lower the bed with the push of a button. When you’re done using the bed, simply raise it and you have 140 cu. ft. of storage below for your gear. The front dinette also converts to provide an additional cross-coach sleeping area.

Which is right for you?

Deciding between the Travato and Revel largly depends on your lifestyle. Are you looking for an off-road capable RV such as the Revel? or do you prefer the gas powered Travato? Both options are easy to drive and have great fuel economy as well as a peace of mind with Winnebagos 12-month/15,000-mile basic warranty.

The Travato is great for those who want to spend more time off the grid with the Pure3 Energy option. The Travato is also available in two different floorplan layouts compared to the Revel.

The Revel is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast that wants to venture the road less traveled. The 4 wheel drive will let you tackle rough terrain and with the 140-cu. ft. gear garage you’ll have plenty of room for all of your gear.
