    Terrible not to have shoulder restraints on the rear seats. I wouldn't feel comfortable putting my kids in them. Big mistake.

    I've been shopping around for a while and THIS is definitely on my list of favorites.

    As for the market of who this would be suitable for…… a suburban mom like me with a potty training toddler in tow, could be considered as that. This would be a fantastic grocery getter.

    No there aren't 4 of the 3piont seat belts, where the back lounge seats have only the lap restraints, but it's enough to be able to secure 1 if not 2 baby seats (that have a 5piont haness) which have their own head rests, lol

    Neil, the One year warranty is just on the Winnebago part of the Revel. You still have the warranty on each appliance, which is usually 2 or 3 years. Then you have the warranty on the Mercedes Chassis & Drive Tran, which is the most important part. You mentioned the RoadTrek 6 year warranty, see what happened to that company. I tried to explain that to one of my Customers when they bought a RoadTrek 6 months before they went belly up. A Warranty is only as good as the Company. Winnebago builds a nice product and actually builds most of the parts themselves. Allowing them more over-site as to the quality of the end product. Keep up the good work!

    We're researching the Class B options and the Revel is at the top of our list. I absolutely love the layout and features. My only concern is the cassette toilet. I've heard they're nasty to empty. Besides that the Revel checks most of the boxes on our feature wish list. We're probably going to buy about a year from now so perhaps the 2021 model will have a compost toilet option.

    Custom van makers have been using the loft bedroom for a while. You can purchase them to put into your own van. Looks like Winnebago's innovation is to copy the custom market. You could probably get this layout on the custom market for the same or cheaper. What I think looks cool is when they put windows in the back and have the table and two benches under the bed rather than storage – much more inviting and you can get a separate closet in front where they have the bench seat.

    The bathroom/closet/shower made me laugh. Are you kidding me? I used to think I could never afford a Winnebago, now I think I don't want one! The rear bedroom was a big disappointment to be as well. With that being said, another great review, you are much more thorough then my local RV seller in New Brunswick.

    The lift bed and garage also make the Revel attractive to folks who need to haul cargo to tradeshows, like antique dealers, artists, crafts-people, etc…very limited class B options out there with any kind of storage…this one has over 140 cu ft for such a business-person…an ignored segment

    Neil,
    I would like to know the model of the van you are filming in at the beginning and end of your review. Is it your own camper?
    I love the layout of it. Have you done a video on that particular model?
    Thank you for the videos, very helpful information.

    Do you think the Revel will be offered in a gasoline chassis soon since Mercedes Benze is now producing gasoline engines?

    Thank you for your review.
    You need to expand your knowledge base on macerator pumps, which is what you referred to as a bilge pump.
    You did not cover the great solar and heating system features in any detail.

    Love this review, this is exactly the RV I would need and the hydronic heating system that runs off of the main diesel tank sips diesel fuel and can run all day in the blistering cold weather yet you would feel like you never left the comfort of your home wipes away all the other minor inconveniences. This camper is a dream come true for many avid winter sports enthusiasts and I can see why this is selling lot hot cakes out west.

    I wonder how long it'll be until we see this setup in larger motorhomes. It's much more practical.

    The lifting bed is nothing new, but having the bedroom serve as a bike garage is. They could get more use out of that space by placing cushions on the rear doors and a projector setup in front, maybe a shelf for a computer tower.

    I think you were very generous to Winnebago in this review. Yes, it is innovative in many respects, but I checked one out at a dealer and felt the build quality and materials used were sub par (now I am being generous). I was very interested in the Revel until I actually was able to look at the inside. I guess folks are willing to accept lower quality to get a fully equipped 4×4 adventure van of the dealers lot. Hopefully Gen 2 will be better.

    2019 Revels are out starting at 145k and upwards from there. No LP, No Generator, not even a simple Mercedes high idle option. Chassis looks like leftover ‘18s marketed as ‘“2019”. Wow! I imagine only a handful of people will be buying these. I’ll pass!

    This layout is very crowded. Why aren't you guys watching the multiple van builds that are more practical and more liveable, with more floor space. Your vans are great looking but definitely not warm looking. It would suit your company to ask them for their input at a small fee of course.

    Interior construction, design, and materials look cheap, cheap, cheap. I like the cassette toilet and raising bed, but the rest of it is not great. Those drawers look like the same crap design from RVs of the 60s.

    Way too over priced for what they give you!!! For 140,000 you get no oven or microwave, only one eye on the stove, a small and practically useless kitchen, a totally useless indoor dining table, a totally useless outdoor dining table, no long windows in the back to let light in and for you to see the beautiful vistas, only one skylight when two could be had again for light entry, everyone points out no lithium batteries. What are you charging for? Space???
    I like the idea of the garage part of the vehicle, but that's free. No tech invoved in that. What about a t.v? Or radio? In your long travels into Mother Nature don't you want to come home and see if the other world still exists?? It gets dark early in the winter wouldn't you want to put in a DVD and see a movie to kill some time?
    Your limiting factor in this vehicle out in the wild is not the cassette toilet. Basically you can dig a hole somewhere empty the contents and cover it up. Don't say you wouldn't do it. The limiting factor is the kitchen. How are you going to cook outside in a rain storm or a blizzard?? The kitchen is useless. Enough to make a cup of coffee or tea.
    This product is worth maybe $80,000. I give it that for the benz body and the 4×4.
    They should move the bathroom back into the garage. Give you a bigger kitchen with a real oven and at least 3 eyes on the stove and a decent size table to enjoy your meal. More windows for light and lithium batteries. Get rid of that stupid outdoor table that is useless.
    Make the bathroom slightly larger so you can take a nice warm shower at the end of a long hike. The water reserve should be at least 50 gallons. Your talking living in the boondocks for extended periods. And a bigger refidgerator.
    It can be done in that small space. It requires design and designers.
    I'm looking foward to a proper off road rv that's affordable and has the basics. The revel right now doesn't cut the mustard.

    So with the bed down you have to leave your pricey bikes and gear outside? Not good. Unless those side seats fold down.

    very disappointing review, you obviously love your Agile, and you for got a few important points, " This is a Bilge pump for the kitchen sink" ( YOU SHOULD BE BETTER INFORMED IF YOU WANT TO DO A REVIEW) its a Macerator pump.. and is designed to move the waste water from one side of the coach to the other, and can grind up…like a garbage disposal, small garbage… there were several other points you failed to properly describe, and all in all your review was tainted… Please stop, unless you can approach a review with no bias.

    This is really ugly vehicle inside they really need to hire high-end professional decorators to design there cabins tell them what they want in it and then have the decorator blow it out professionally because this is really ugly and awkward and does it have a Mercedes engine I mean when talking about a lot of money to get this thing serviced
