Is the New Winnebago Revel the Ultimate Camper Van?

The team over at Winnebago have certainly been busy. A week ago, we featured the Winnebago Ekko, and recently, Winnebago unveiled its latest iteration of the Revel, a van designed to elevate off-road performance and extend the comforts of off-grid living. The 2025 Revel model introduces an array of enhancements aimed at adventurers seeking to explore the backcountry without compromising luxury or capability.

At the heart of the Revel’s design is its all-wheel-drive (AWD) Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, powered by a turbo-diesel engine and paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. This foundation ensures that the Revel has the power to traverse rugged terrain.

A significant upgrade in the 2025 Revel is the introduction of the Winnebago Power Max system, a power solution with a Lithionics GTO battery at its heart and managed by the EcoFlow Power Hub Pro. This 5-in-1 system ensures that adventurers can remain self-sufficient for up to seven days on a single charge. The system’s dual alternator with high-speed charging capability optimizes energy from driving, idle, shore, and solar sources.

Winnebago has also focused on enhancing the Revel’s living conditions for extended travel seasons. The van features 3M Thinsulate insulation for gap-free coverage and a high-tech honeycomb composite flooring to maintain optimal interior temperatures. A new hydronic heating system adds to the comfort by providing multi-zone temperature control, ensuring that occupants can enjoy their adventures regardless of the external climate.

The Revel’s interior has been reimagined to offer flexible, modern living spaces. The updated galley has compression-latched cabinets for secure storage, while the lounge area has been redesigned with reclining and split-function seating to maximize comfort. A new wall-mounted table adds convenience, allowing for easy adjustments to the living space as needed.

Sleeping arrangements in the Revel feature the innovative WinnSleep mattress technology (a two-layer high density hygienic foam mattress with a European suspension system), ensuring restful nights. Below the power lift bed, a revamped gear garage with six L-track bases offers secure and flexible storage solutions for all adventure gear.

Exterior color options for the 2025 Revel include Pebble Grey, Blue Grey, and Selenite, with the option to add Raptor graphics for a more personalized touch. The van’s compact dimensions, featuring a length of 19 feet 7 inches, an exterior height of 10 feet, and an exterior width of 7 feet 5 inches, make it an agile companion for wilderness trails and urban excursions. Dual off-road light bars mounted on the front fairing provide essential illumination for nighttime navigation through challenging landscapes. Specifications such as a 35-gallon freshwater tank, continuous water heater capacity, and a 24.5-gallon fuel capacity underline the Revel’s readiness for extended periods of travel. With sleeping accommodations for two, the Revel is an ideal choice for couples or solo adventurers seeking to explore the great outdoors without leaving the comforts of home behind.

Priced from $246,000, the 2025 Winnebago Revel is a premium product, and you may be hard-pressed to justify the nearly $40,000 difference between the Revel and the AWD Class C Ekko. The Ekko offers most of the features of the Revel while sleeping four comfortably, offering more living space and storage options, larger water tanks, and a pop-top roof. While the Revel is undeniably a great vehicle, the Ekko is demonstrably better in every aspect except size; the Revel will be more nimble and offer greater on and off-road performance.
