Winnebago Motor Homes has detail descriptions on both of these. Both are based on the little diesel, both are small at 25 ft or less. At $130k base the VIA IMO is way overpriced for a 25 ft mh although it has many standard features. The VIA is a class A, while the View is a class C.

wildtoad, they are nice but crazy expensive-you're talking Coach House money without the level of workmanship and single piece shell.

We looked at the Itasca Reyo at the Chicago RV show (twin to the Via). Interior-wise it had slightly more room than our '05 Aspect, but had a very small slide in the living area. The bedroom area was adequate.
The cab area was all wasted space, seating-wise it had about as much room as the Ford E450, the extra space was wasted between the seats and the outside wall.
Overall it was disappointing, certainly not worth the cash premium in my opinion. A shame because the concept is intriguing.

We looked at both at the Detroit RV show. The more expensive Via didn't appeal that much, but I really liked the use of space in the View Profile. After 10 years of RVing, and currently getting only about 7 mpg with our Ford V-10, we took the leap and ordered a View Profile. I'll feel better with the improved gas mileage and will be more likely to take trips whether longer or just weekend, although I don't have any illusions (or delusions) that the cost of the unit will pay me back in gas savings.
