Winnebago ERA


In the past decades, recreational vehicles have improved in levels of comfort, performance, and style. And given the strength and capabilities of cab chassis cutaway vans, RV manufacturers have adequate platforms on which to build centers of mobile luxury.

The Winnebago Era is such a motorhome.

Built on the frame of a Mercedes Sprinter chassis, this RV has the style and luxury of many large models, all at an affordable price. Let’s have a closer look at this masterpiece of RV engineering.

Built in two models, the 70A and the 70X, the Winnebago Era produces 188 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque from its Mercedes turbo-diesel V6 powerplant. Together with a 5-speed automatic transmission, the Era transmits its power to a single rear drive axle rated at 7,720 pounds. With a towing capacity from its standard tow package of 5,000 pounds, the Era has plenty of strength to pull small boats, ATV or snowmobile trailers, or the family car. In addition, the exterior ofEra is painted in a pleasant blue or golden brown and white color scheme and equipped with fog and running lamps, a full side awning, porch light, and mud guards.

However, the main feature of all credible RVs is their comfort, and the Winnebago Era is not lacking in this regard. The Era 70A features dual twin beds, a full bathroom with toilet and shower, refrigerator, sink, and two 22 inch LCD televisions. The 70X model replaces the dual twin beds with a powered convertible sofa bed and only has one 22-inch TV. However, the 70 X also features twin companion seats, which together with the movable pedestal table allow a comfortable dining arrangement. The Era also feature a backup camera system, LED interior lighting, Corian counters, water filtration, a dual-element cooking range, and a heat pump/furnace climate control system with a 29,500 combined BTU of cooling/heating power.

Despite its compact size and affordable price, the Winnebago Era offers affordable luxury for long or short trips. And with its efficient engine, the Era is guaranteed to save money at the pump as well. Furthermore, the 12-month, 15,000 mile warranty gives owners peace of mind for the long haul. So whether you are a long-haul adventurer or a day-tripper, the Winnebago Era is the Class-B RV for you.
