Roof AC vs. under floor AC question!

When did Winnebago/Itasca switch from basement air to the conventional roof air conditioners?? What year or years did they switch?? Just curious, thanks the ever-cool Muffin Man.

Not sure if it applies to all models, but on our Journey, 2010 was the last year for the basement air. They said they discontinued it because they had to provide a place for the DEF tank.

Not just the DEF tank but also all the emission control components and muffler. Miss the basement ac in my 01 Journey but like my 14 Journey even with noisier roof ACs.

2010 is about right, now you can't buy one with basement air unless you buy a extremely high end model and all of those are one of a kind or just too pretty to take anywhere.

As others have said, the year was 2010, but that only applied to the engine date of manufacture. Cummins continued to supply engines built before the cutoff date, that were used in model year motorhomes built AFTER that date, and they do not require the DEF system and other emissions changes.
