2008 Adventurer® Limited

The 2008 Adventurer Limited is a special edition vehicle loaded with key features and available in two exciting floorplans – the 242" WB 37GL and 262" WB 39WL.

Standard Features:

<LI> Workhorse UFO™ gas pusher chassis yields pusher benefits and performance with gas chassis convenience and pricing
<LI> Enhanced exterior designs create a unique special edition look
<LI> Traditional stile-and-rail cabinetry in Sierra Maple
<LI> Corian® galley countertops
<LI> UltraLeather™ six-way power assist driver's seat
<LI> UltraLeather passenger seat with footrest
<LI> UltraLeather Rest Easy® sofa
<LI> UltraLeather Euro Recliner
<LI> Stainless steel microwave convection oven
<LI> Four-door refrigerator with icemaker and Titanium Touch™
<LI> A&E® patio awning with wind sensor
<LI> Front protective mask
<LI> Rearview/sideview cameras and monitor
<LI> Full-body paint, "Dusk" and "Mocha Frost"
<LI> BenchMark® dinette w/adjustable Dream Dinette™ table

This coach is in a mid-year entry into Winnebago Industries product line. There is no speculation as of this writing regarding whether or not it will be retained going forward in 2009. One big item of interest we often see on the radar screen is whether or not Winnebago Industries will make a shorter wheel base coach in the 33 to 35 foot range on a Workhorse powered UFO. Now that's something I think is long over due and its something I believe that we can all agree on.


Standard features include, flat floor, push button 6 speed shifting, adjustable brake and gas pedals, 18 inch leather wrapped steering wheel

One thing that we can do as this product is launched is to try and see this floorplan and write feedback in these forums about your likes and dislikes regarding the "Limited Edition". In my opinion I believe this style of coach is what we've all been waiting for. Bullet #3 above even makes note of the fact that "Traditional stile-and-rail cabinetry" is being used in this coach. This is basically what traditional style owners wanted and better yet it's on a UFO.

The front cap redesign is truly a "Limited" look and on an Adventurer body is quite striking!

The only thing that is shown as optional equipment is a King Dome HD ready satellite dome, a freestanding dinette and 4 chairs and the washer dryer combination. This coach is truly loaded!

Please stay tuned to this thread, I'll be putting up a link to a preliminary product brochure shortly. (PDF)

Think you can arrange to have the 37GL for inspection & test drives at the MB Fall Rally?

If I can get Camper County here in Myrtle Beach to get one, I think I might be able to convince them to bring it on over to Ocean Lakes so we can all have a look see.

Do my eyes deceive me or did they eliminate the Stor More feature on the left side compartments??

I don't believe that there are Stor-Mor equipped coaches that have pass through capability directly from the Store-Mor compartment. Pass through storage is certainly a desirable feature on lots Class A RDP coaches according to their owners.

If I had a choice between pass thru storage or Store More, I would select Store More. One must have slide out trays on a pass thru to make them really usable, and I'm finding out that the I carry too much junk on my rig and the current storage that I have is adequate, and I should de-load. Whenever I do a walk thru and I show the left side cabinets getting down under the slide is getting harder and harder to do... I guess old age kicks in. Just my thoughts from an old RVer...

Looks very nice....an Adventurer in Vectra/Horizon dress . Will be interesting to see the posted CCC's for these coaches.

Do my eyes deceive me or are there no cup holders anywhere near the driver? If it is a mid entry coach, would think a nice center console would be in order.

As stated in the previous post on the Adventurer UFO, Lazy Days has one on the lot. It is not shown on the web site as yet, but keep you eyes peeled for it. Stock # is 1006497

I expect to be at LD next week and will be all over the unit.

The Store-More feature appears to be gone on the model. The slide mechanism looks to be the electric model.

Another question I have is there a drivers door. Does not look like it from picture above showing driving compartment.

Is there a UFO Suncruiser floating around out there??

Smlranger,
There appears to be a small bottle of water (small holder???) on the dash at the left side of the steering wheel. But as noted by depchief, no driver's door.

Best,

Doesn't the 6 speed push button eliminate any possibility of a driver's door?

Looking at the interior picture, I would say there is no door. That I would miss, I use mine all the time.

Did not notice,is there any type of grade braking This I will check out when at LD's

Lazy Days website has a few 38' Adventurers with MSRPs around $180K (Separate comment - YIKES!). They have a 39WL (the new limited model) at $170K. $10K could easily be just options. It does make me wonder, how do a W26 and a UFO 26K chassis price out? The individual pieces are roughly the same, they are just laid out different. Same price, right?

Thanks Mike!


Must admit, I'm disappointed with the 37GL floorplan.

If you guys don't mind a Fleetwood person nosing in here I've got an opinion on the 39WL floorplan. Since it looks to be the same as the 39W on a Destination, I'll put in my 2-cents worth.

I got to see that floorplan on a Destination that was at our local RV show. With the
curb-side slide being farther back, you do, at least, gain back some under-the-awning patio space that's been lost on a lot of the MH's that have curb-side slides that are farther forward.

To me, the bath seemed a bit cramped & I didn't care for the swing door on the kitchen side. If they put pocket doors for the other side of the bath & to close off the bedroom, why not keep the continuity & do the same all around? Although, the swing door did allow for a 3-bar door mounted towel rack there, which wouldn't have been possible with a pocket door. Also, it seemed kind of unnerving to have doors on both sides of the toilet. The closest feeling I had for that was one of "exposure". I guess I'm just used to having only 1 door on my bathroom.

The microwave/convection oven was placed under the cooktop (instead of above it). I thought this was an interesting idea, but, the more I thought about its use, I didn't like thinking about having to bend down all the time to use it. For an item that gets as much use as ours does, having it in the lower cabinetry was not convenient.

The king-size bed was a nice feature. With the queen-size, yes, the nightstand on the one side was bigger, but I prefer more room in the bed than more room on a nightstand.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on the 39W(L)floorplan. A bit more than 2-cents worth, but I hope it helps to hear impressions, even if from the owner of a non-Winnebago.

Hey Driver,do you have anything on that new smaller UFO?How do you think it will compare cost-wise,$$$ with the W-22 chassis or whichever Workhorse chassis it measures up to? And finally,who's buying?

Whaler, If I could answer that question exactly - I'd have to be using a crystal ball. I do know this, the 22K UFO chassis is coming. It is more attractive price wise and yet still yields the best functionality of the UFO platform.

Some of the equipment we might see on the 22K UFO "maybe" an Allison transmission rated for 22K, 235 series XRV tires, fixed gas and brake pedals, & a 75 gallon fuel tank.

I can't comment yet on who is building on the 22K however look for it under 33 to 35 foot boxes. (perhaps with a FWS (I hope!))
