The brochure might mention it, but I would send a note to Winnebago Support and ask them.

Include your VIN and/or WGO serial number, and they can look it up for you.

Be very cautious. It is rare to find any new RV with factory solar prep package to be worth much. Maybe for 200 - 300 watts at tops. Sometimes in a custom build you can have them install decent gauge wire and route to and from places that make sense. IMO- many times they slap together the minimum solar prep just to say they have it and check some box on a sales chart. LoL

Agreed. It's more likely pre-wired for satellite than solar.

Agreed, I'd rather do it myself and know it's done properly.

You can bet that if WBGO pre-wired that model for solar they'd not hide the fact. It would be shouted from the roof-tops. If it's not listed in the "features" then it's not there.

I just checked and it appears the 2019 Vista could OPTIONALLY be set up for Solar from the factory.

Solar panel/battery charger wiring prep three-way, solar, plug-ready port located on roof and single port in exterior bay, for aftermarket installation , up to 450-watts
I have the aforementioned "plug ready port" located on my roof and it's easy to spot. It looks like this (mine is white). If you don't have one of these on your roof you no doubt do not have any pre-wiring installed:
