Winnebago bets on adventure with new van

Drive up to any campsite in the 1970s and you would find a sea of yellow-cream motor homes sporting a trademark “W.” Whether you owned the “Minnie Winnie” or the “Winnie Wagon,” the Winnebago RV was so popular that its name became synonymous with RV life.

Now, Winnebago is jumping on the adventure van trend with their new Paseo model, a $115,000 coach built on the Ford Transit Van chassis. Although Winnebago’s most famous models were all much longer, Class A RVs, the Paseo is a more maneuverable, 21-foot Class B model that’s a cinch to get into camping spots and is easy to set up. It comes with a full kitchen, bathroom, electric-powered patio awning, and generator. And the rear third of the van transforms using a “Flex Bed System” to offer different configurations for dining and sleeping. Throw in insulated screen shades for light-free snoozing and a fair amount of overhead storage and you’ve got an adventure van worth considering.
