Taking full advantage of the proven 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3-liter turbo-diesel puts 325 lbs./ft. of torque through an on-demand 4WD system, complete with high/low range and hill descent mode for added off-road capability.

“The Revel is a true 4X4 RV designed to take you to places no other Winnebago motorhome has gone before,” said Russ Garfin, director of product management, in a company news release.

“The amenities and features of the coach allow for comfortable exploration of remote places.”

Construction of the Revel is specifically designed for durability with features such as welded aluminum cabinet face frames and positive-latching cabinet doors and drawers.

The floor plan revolves around a rear “gear garage” with a power lift bed. When the bed is raised to the ceiling, 140 cubic-feet in storage space is available for bicycles, climbing equipment, hiking gear, and whatever else is needed for the next adventure.

Swivel cab seats and a pull-up table make the Revel’s lounge area a comfortable spot to rev up for, or unwind after, the day’s adventures.

Storage and sleeping space are maximized by the flared body and Power Lift Bed. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames, dual-pane acrylic windows with insulated shades, snap-in screens, and a standard solar power system all contribute to the 44E’s off-grid livability.

Cooking is easier and more comfortable aboard the Revel. The all electric galley is completed by a 2.5-cu. ft. compressor-driven refrigerator that keeps things cool even when you’re off the grid, while the single-burner induction cook top allows flameless cooking inside the vehicle.

The stainless sink features a fold-down faucet and cover, and an integrated water filtration system keeps the clean water flowing, while the flip-up counter extension adds meal prep space.

After a long day of activities, simply lower the PowerLift Bed from its “up” position over the gear garage and relax on a comfortable gel foam mattress.

The dinette also converts to a cross-coach sleeping platform for an overnight guest.

The Revel’s wet bath with a gear closet offers a low, step-in height, flip-down lavatory sink to maximize space, and a conveniently integrated shower.

The cassette-style toilet swivels for comfortable access, and the bathroom includes a removable clothes hanger alongside three removable shelves for added waterproof storage.

Dual-pane acrylic awning-style windows with insulated shades allow the windows to be opened for ventilation, even in rain, while snap-in screens on sliding and rear doors let the breeze in while keeping the bugs out.

When the temperature cools down, the diesel-fired heating system keeps you cozy while also providing hot water as needed.

And the available roof-mounted air conditioning system keeps things cool when the heat is on.

The Revel’s cab is ready to go when you are, with comfortable, supportive seats with armrests, adjustable lumbar support and a headrest, and slide/swivel/recline functions.

The available large screen Infotainment Center with Rand McNally RV GPS with a full complement of driver aids put you in command of the 3.0L, 6-cylinder, diesel engine.

Available options include the Mercedes-Benz collision-avoidance system with a windshield-mounted camera and display monitor, and JBL Premium Sound Speakers.

“The Revel is designed to enhance your next outdoor experience,” Garfin said.

“Whether your passion is off-roading, fishing, or another outdoor activity, the Revel allows you to get to your location faster, stay “off-the-grid” longer, and enjoy your time doing what you love.”

Worth Pondering…

The attraction of recreational vehicle travel is to see the country, visit new places, meet interesting people, and experience the freedom of the open road.
