Default Winnebago Paseo

This is the 1st mention I've heard of the new Winnebago Transit Van Class B. I guess we'll just have to settle for gazing at the floor plan until the reveal at Hershey.

#0 - 2017 Winnebago Paseo for sale in North East PA

Nice find

I think some folks have been hoping/waiting to get a Class B with the PowerStroke V6 gas engine.

I look right at the size of the bed- 53" x 72"--- would anyone really be ok with that for more than 1 person ( and it's a climb-over to use the head at night).

seems the space could be used better- the head seems quite large for a B and the bed quite small

That bed size is slightly bigger than what I have now (by an inch or two). The size is ok for us as we are not large. The climb over would not be my first choice though. It's a Classic B van compromise - in our case we each have our own wardrobe - his & hers - but have the smaller climb-over bed setup.

Swapping the fridge and wardrobe in the Paseo and making the wardrobe half height (ceiling down) looks like it could give you two twin beds but typically the fridge is positioned to be a certain distance away from the fuel filler so maybe that is why the fridge is in that spot.

It kind of looks like a single traveler could use either the fore/aft bed on the passenger side or the larger double size flex bed.

Maybe this is a bit of a re-emergence of cross way sleeping with Hymer and Winnebago offering it (based on the early pre-production info).

If it is indeed priced less than the Travato as surmised by the FB comment below that might push Winnebago to new heights in the B market place.

It's going to be priced between the ERA & Travato. Folks that went on the GNR tour of WGO's class B plant were told that. They saw mockups of this interior...

Sadly, I didn't get to see those mock-ups. This looks like a Zion, but with the Sprinter proportions. Can't wait to see it in person at Hershey. Hopefully it's all fitted out so I can get some pictures of the underside.

I wonder what event these pictures were taken? Louisville? Surely not the Outdoor Retailer's show.

It would actually be overkill for us. There is always room to spare in our 48" X 72" bed. And we prefer climb-over to slide-out-the-bottom-and-drag-the-covers-with-you.

Choices are a good thing.

Nice that it has the Ecoboost gas, nice alternative to a diesel Sprinter...

And where are those naysayers who said no one would build on the Transit for a Class B??
