From the versatile Winnebago Solis to the rugged Revel 4×4 to the affordable Travato, these campervans feature the latest and greatest in RV capability and technology. With a well-established brand like Winnebago, you can be confident that you’re getting the very best in American-made recreational vehicles.

How Much Does a Winnebago Sprinter Cost?

There are five Winnebagos that use the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, including the Era, the Boldt, the Revel, the View, and the Navion.

Which also happens to be the five most expensive Class B and Class B+ RVs that Winnebago makes, ranging in price from $150,000 to $190,000, due in large part to their premium Sprinter chassis.

As there are three main work van chassis used for camper vans and Class B RVs, including the Ford Transit, the RAM Promaster, and the Mercedes Sprinter.

With the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter being by far the most premium and high-end van chassis, thanks to numerous advanced safety features, excellent gas mileage, superior reliability, and available 4×4 capability.

However, all of these premium features don’t come cheap, as the Mercedes Sprinter van is also by far the most expensive van chassis.

Which adds substantial cost to the Winnebago Class B and B+ RVs that utilize it.
