Calling it a revolutionary motor home in every way, Winnebago Industries has begun shipping its  2010 Winnebago Via and Itasca Reyo RVs to dealers and the model sports several innovative features and innovations.

"The culmination of an extensive development process, the all-new Winnebago Via and Itasca Reyo are ground-breaking motor homes in every way," said Winnebago Industries' Vice President of Sales and Marketing Roger Martin. "With innovative new features and construction, contemporary design, and record-breaking fuel economy, the new Via and Reyo are truly motor homes for the future."

The first Class A diesel motor homes built on the fuel efficient Dodge/Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, the Via and Reyo are 25-foot, fresh, innovative and fully equipped motor homes that are slated to provide the highest fuel efficiency currently available in a Class A motor home, along with superior handling and maneuverability.

The chassis is equipped with the highly efficient 3.0-liter, 154 hp Mercedes Benz turbocharged V6 diesel engine. Providing the highest fuel efficiency currently available in a Class A motor home, the new Via also offers superior handling, maneuverability and a minimal parking footprint.

In the cab area, the Via provides a high level of quality and functionality, starting with the true automotive dashboard. Maneuvering in heavy traffic is a snap with side and rear cameras that are included as standard equipment which may be viewed on the in-dash LCD screen incorporated into the radio. A convenient powered sun visor eliminates the need to stand up to adjust the sunshades.

Functionality continues with the passenger side console providing storage with a 12V outlet inside the storage compartment which allows electronic devices to be charged inside without messy cords getting in the way.

Developed and built exclusively by Flexsteel for the Via, the driver and passenger cab seats feature a powered mechanism for raising and lowering the seats so they can swivel and become a functioning part of the floor plan when parked, and easily turned and lowered into the cab area when it's time to travel.

Despite its compact 25-foot length, the new Via 25T offers impressive roominess and unique form and function.

The driver's side, front slideout room includes a sofa and a dining table with a removable pedestal base that may easily be moved to serve the driver and passenger seats as well. Just aft of the sofa is a private bathroom, complete with a robe hook, medicine cabinet; toilet with sprayer; round, stainless-steel sink and shower with retractable, self-cleaning door and removable clothes rod.

Mounted on the wall rearward of the slideout, a 26-inch LCD TV is provided for optimal viewing in the front of the coach. The television is mounted so that it may slide horizontally to be viewed unobstructed even when the slideout is not extended.

Contemporary styling is prevalent throughout the Via and stands out in the galley located on the passenger side of the coach. The galley features light-weight, curved cabinets in a choice of Sunset Cherry or Mocha Cherry and a unique decorative backsplash. The Via's galley also features a two-burner range-top and stainless steel sink with glass covers to expand the available counter-space and a microwave/convection oven. With a removable freezer unit, the unique Dometic refrigerator is 6.2 cubic feet with the freezer and 7.0 cubic feet without.

Sleeping accommodations in the Via are also one of a kind. The 25T features raised twin beds in the rear of the motor home. With the exclusive Flex Bed Kit option, the twin beds join to form a comfortable, large 59 x 87- inch bed. A 19-inch LCD TV is also featured in the bedroom area of the coach.

Another drop-down bed, Studio Loft is integrated into the ceiling of the cab area. In the sleep position, the bed is a low, 43.5 inches off the floor, providing easy access into the bed. An integrated privacy shade surrounds the front and sides of the bunk for privacy. The bottom of the bed is constructed of molded automotive-grade headliner for a quieter cockpit and an automotive appearance.

Other new features include the exclusive, new Threshold Quiet RV Door. Developed through interviews with customers and external studies of how motor home owners enter and exit their coaches, the new design includes interior and exterior handles that are at different heights for improved ergonomics.

The door mounts flush to the coach and has hidden hinges for reduced wind noise, and for improved appearance and security. Double unbroken seals also reduce road noise and seal better against air or water infiltration. The new door design also incorporates a large window with built-in screen and residential style panes that open to maximize fresh air ventilation without the need for a separate screen door.

The new IntelliSense monitor panel incorporates water/drainage, LP/battery voltage displays, water pump controls and water heater controls into one integrated panel with an easy to read LCD display and touch screen technology. The Via also includes a new quieter Suburban furnace, a new light weight RVP roof air conditioner, diesel generator and a new electric awning that features a clean design for reduced wind noise and push-button operation.

The Via offers a unique motor home with clean, contemporary exterior lines and dynamic full-body paint in three beautiful color choices: Diamond, Nightgold and Red Accent.

The starting base price (MSRP) on the Via is $135,132. More more information, visit Winnebago's Web site at
