Want to rent Profile View 24V for one week

Already have a 2013 view 24M. Considering buying New 2016 Profile View 24V but would like to try out a 24V model 2013, 2014, 2015, or 2016 for one week to make sure wife will be satisfied with new vehicle. Willing to pay a good price for the privilege of doing this. Will buy insurance to cover this action if necessary.

Have you asked at dealers selling the RV you're interested in? They would be best equipped to allow a test.

From the look of your phone number, you're in the Eugene, Oregon area. Check with Guaranty RV. They rent motorhomes. They sell the Navion model which is the same as the View and they may have the model you're interested in as part of their rental fleet.

What is it you like about the "V"? We thought we wanted a "V" at first, but closer inspection of a number of factors made us decide on the "J" model.

Want to rent Profile View 24V for one week

Each have pros and cons. As a family of 4 we have a 2008 24H and a family member with a medical condition benefits from the couch option. If I had enough pennies, we would have bought a -M. We had a prior rig with a rear corner bed like the 24J but that wasn't viable for us now. That's what is great: options.

The only thing I wish our -H had was the 3 point seat belts with steel reinforcements in the dinette that the Winnebago trend has. The dinette belts being rear facing on a cheesy press board seat back is dangerous.

Choosing View 24J over 24C?

Please tell us why. I'm looking into either a 24M or 24V. TIA.

We chose the J model over the others for these reasons:
- We liked the larger U-shaped dinette with the footrests rather than the small sofa.
- We also liked the bathroom in the rear corner rather than sticking out in the middle of the coach.
- There's more storage capacity in the outside cargo bays.
- We didn't like the fact that on a couple of the other models (don't remember which ones for sure) there is an electric pump that is used to drain gray water. That just seems like another inconvenience should is prove troublesome.

Of course the drawback for some is the corner bed in the J model. We initially didn't think we wanted a corner bed, but after laying on it at the dealership we found it to be quite suitable, and the other advantages I've mentioned outweighed our initial thoughts about a corner bed. We made several short camping trips in it after purchasing it in late July and really like it a lot and are glad we chose the J model. Your needs and concerns may vary ... that's why Winnebago made more than one model. :-)

Another consideration is that with the U-shaped dinette you get some storage under the seats which you don't have with the other models using the sofa/bed.

If you are really interested in the view 24v (twin beds) I would also take a look at the Winnebago Fuse 23a or the Trend 23d. It is a little smaller but a lot less expensive. You get the twin beds but loose some of the living space, but you gain back some openness. Sorry to add to the confusion but I was almost sold on the 24v. I wanted the twin beds, but did not like the bath breaking the unit in two parts.

Phil Kidd,

Have you tried contacting Winnabego to see if the can provide a lead through their dealer network? I was in the same situation last year and the only Sprinter Class C's for rent were somewhere in Canada. There were plenty of dealerships that would rent Class C "gassers" but finding the type of rig you would like to rent may be very, very difficult. And by the way there are other RV manufacturers that build a similar floorplan besides Winnebago but I do understand it when you want what you want.

Best wishes in your hunt,

Ken,
Is it difficult to get out of the corner bed without waking your partner?

we put 37Kmiles on a 2014 24V

Beds were fantastic (sleep better in the view than the house)

we removed the sofa bed, put in 2 recliners. We spent about 220 nights in it over 23 months. No bad days,or bad nights.

Chriswar:
The corner bed does provide a challenge for the person against the wall getting out without disturbing their partner, but we had a corner bed in our first travel trailer so we knew what we were getting into having a corner bed again. With the features that appealed to us with the cotner bed 24J model it's worth the challenge.
