the interior architecture of winnebago’s ‘revel’ boasts several high-tech amenities including a power-lift bed, a compressor refrigerator, a dinette with a pull-up table, an electric galley, and a wet-bath that doubles as a gear closet, plus 140 cubic-feet of storage space, while on the roof a solar-power-system helps to provide the power. the mercedes platform offers an on-demand four-wheel-drive system, in conjunction with a high / low range, and a ‘hill descent’ mode. it’s powered by the a 3-liter turbo diesel engine putting out 325 lb-ft of torque.

 

 

‘the revel is a true 4×4 RV,’ comments russ garfin, winnebago’s director of product management. he continues, ‘the amenities and features of the coach allow for comfortable exploration of remote places.’
