2020 View vs Sasquatch

Well at least some people claim to have seen a Sasquatch? Has anyone heard what the seeming hold up is? Trouble with the chassis changes?

Maybe they got enough negative feedback on the "new and improved" cab over forehead, from people who simply DON'T WANT A CAB OVER FOREHEAD, and won't pay the kind of money they're asking for one of these things, if they can't delete the thing in favor of the aerodynamic low profile fore end, with it's classic beautiful and functional panoramic picture window. Perfect for increasing natural light during the day, and for stargazing at night.

So they're rethinking it.


That's my guess........

Well itís not what the pictures on the website suggest and many people seem to like it for storage for me I agree with your option of it.

If you mean the pics on the Product/Class C/Navion specs page on Winnbagaoind.com, I think the two aerial photos are of prior year models, as the new models cab over is clearly flat, aka level with the rest of the roof line. The 2 pics show what appears to be the older "hump" topped cab over.



I don't like it because, A) we'll never sleep up there, and B) it's extra structural weight on an already OCCC challenged coach, and that's not including the added "storage" weight when you start tossing your "stuff" up there.

A family might get better use out of it, but we're a couple with a cat. We don't need it, and won't buy one, until it can be deleted.


EDIT: I looked at the pics again, and the one near the bottom of the page doesn't look long enough to be a View/Navion. I think it's a Porto or Vita.

Iíll be visiting one at the invite of WBGO marketing this coming Tuesday. Prototypes have visited several View/Navion rallies over the past few months. Based on reports from other manufacturers customers, there have been a few chassis integration issues. So be patient and let them get it right.

A little late but here’s the latest on the 2020 Navion/View:

WBGO has made most of the options from years past standard. The only options are diesel generator, full body paint, dual pane windows, and lithium batteries. You get aluminum wheels, electric fridge (new model with nite mode switch), 200 watts of solar, 2000 watt inverter/charger, bigger slides (in the J).

On the Mercedes side: 20% bio diesel compliant engine (straight from the Mercedes rep), 1.75” rear stabilizer bar, and the all the electronic goodies including lane keeping, cruise control the includes preset distance following, voice command, Mercedes GPS.

You will still need your Borg valve stems and Trik-L-Start but that is about it.
