Winnebago Era Type B returns for 2012

The 2012 Winnebago EraWinnebago Industries, Inc., has announced that the Era Type B motorhome will return to its lineup for 2012.

“The 2012 Era is nimble, maneuverable, easy-to-drive and, most important, fuel-efficient, achieving 18-19 mpg,” said Roger Martin, Winnebago's vice president of sales and marketing.

The Era is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis and powered by a Mercedes-Benz turbo-diesel engine. The chassis' gross vehilce weight rating: 11,030-pounds.

"The Era is a fully functional motorhome that is perfect for weekend or weeklong trips, with enhanced storage and seven belted positions for seating flexibility," Martin said.

The Era is available in one floor plan: the 70X. In the cab area, the Ultraleather cab seats swivel to face the two companion seats for a perfect place for conversation or dining when using the moveable pedestal table. The companion seats can be removed via a quick-release lever when more cargo space is needed. The Era also offers a removable wardrobe that can substitute for the companion chair behind the driver’s seat when more storage is needed.

In the rear of the coach, the Era features a powered 70-inch sofa/bed that, at the press of a button, folds flat into a large 70-inch-by-80-inch bed. Other features include a 22-inch LED HDTV that extends and swivels 180 degrees for easy viewing from the front or rear of the coach, a fully equipped galley, efficient bathroom, available infotainment center (with GPS, voice guidance, CD/DVD and a 7-inch touch screen), a 5,000-pound hitch, exterior graphics and an optional awning.

An exterior accessories package is available and includes polished stainless-steel grill bar covers and rocker panel trim.
