Winnebago has relaunched its Era van camper in 2012 with some exciting innovations! “The Era is the nimble, fuel-efficient, easy-to-drive fun machine other Class B motor homes wish they could be. Leveraging the full capabilities of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 chassis with its Mercedes-Benz turbo-diesel engine and dual rear wheels, the Era takes you on fuel-efficient adventures you never thought were possible in a full-featured motor home,” says Winnebago.
New for 2012 is the heavier chassis with dual rear wheels, allowing for more carrying capacity.
The Mercedes 6 cylinder, 188 hp turbo diesel engine, with 16 – 17 MPG, makes the Era the most fuel efficient RV on the market.
There are now 7 belted positions for seating flexibility and the companion seats now have armrests and headrests. All 4 front seats swivel to face each other and provide seating at a removable pedestal table. The rear large power sofa bed has 3 belted seating positions. The Era even provides 4 child seat tether anchors!
For 2012, there is more wardrobe storage space, with a shirt closet and optional removable wardrobe storage cabinet. Additional storage is provided behind the sofa, behind the lavatory, behind the driver’s seat and above the cab.
The optional patio awning is now larger (13′ vs. 11’6″).
And, the electric sofa bed is now larger (70″).
The new LED LCD HDTV extends and swivels to be visible from the front and rear of the motor home. And, it’s operable on both 12v and 110v, so passengers can watch TV while traveling!
Both the coach battery and the engine battery are maintenace free — no water is required!
There are many other features to make traveling easier and more fun! And, the Era comes in 2 exterior color combinations and 2 interior color packages, giving it high end contemporary styling.
For a unique, multi-purpose, fun and great looking van camper, you can’t beat the 2012 Era by Winnebago!
