2021 Travato 59GL Problems

Well, my 2021 Travato 59GL was delivered to me with both the blind spot assist and crosswind assistance systems DISABLED. And since they had replaced the factory radio with a Pioneer DMH-1500NEX and Maestro system that isn't compatible with the 2021 Promaster chassis, there's no way for me to enable them again. I've opened a support claim with Winnebago about it but they have no idea how to fix it and are due to have a "phone call" meeting with someone today at 2pm and after that they should know how to fix this. Add to that the front dinette heater hole has the fabric separating from it and tearing, the toilet water supply pipe looks like it's popped out of the wall/was never installed properly, and a myriad of other fit-and-finish issues, it looks like the QA/QC on these things has declined in recent years?

Who did you purchase that from? If you call Winnebago customer service they might be able to send you some matching fabric to make it easier to repair.

Not to make any excuses for anyone... but the final QC on any RV of any manufacturer has pretty much always been something left to the original purchaser.

As an FYI - all chassis related issues, such as the Blind Spot Monitor, etc are probably best address by the chassis manufacturer. In the case of the ProMaster Chassis I guess that's RAM.

Hopefully, WBGO will be able to coordinate a fix for you but keep in mind that RAM warranties and is responsible for the chassis parts of your Travato.

I have asked some other owners of 2021's if they had problems and none had. I am interested (worried) that the 2022 I have on order might have problems especially with so many changes from previous years.

I agree with iball about QA...my new 2021 Travato 59gl also has a Pioneer Maestro radio problem, and had cupboards falling apart, outdated manuals, holes in roof sealant, very bad caulking for shower pan. I’m an RV newbie so I’m expecting to learn as I go, but Dealerships should be transparent about the HUGE blunder with these replaced radios. Anyone considering buying, Beware about Volta autostart system...the Info packet I was given had old instructions stating that autostart would kick in b/t 25-35%! NOT! It is 10% or less. Plus the autostart module can get out of whack if some sales or service person doesn’t know what they’re doing and cranks the engine while trying to set autostart.

No ETA on Pioneer radio fix, so I have no ability to see my cruise control speed, set my time/date and my chassis is a 2020. Dealership Roy Robinson couldn’t update it for me.

I cannot find any Travatos having the problems you all have. Searched government sites and other forums. You would think that many others would be complaining. I have a 2022 coming in and don't want any problems like yours. I will continue to search.

We’ve had 2 Travatos and my question is why is there a Pioneer radio in them? Is it some kind of upgrade? Granted the factory radio we have is woefully small and the Tom Tom GPS is not my preferred GPS. I’ve heard the newer Ram’s have a much needed upgraded radio setup.

Yes, it is an upgrade at least for Travatos maybe others. There were many complaints about the nav system and screen size. I think that is what triggered it.

I think the radio works fine but interface between it and the Travato (idatalink maestro rr?) is the problem. It is a Winnebago problem not Promaster or the dealers.

I’m with you now. That 5” screen on the factory radio is just downright horrible!! I’ve heard Ram has a new standard radio unit. I hope you get the issue resolved without too much aggravation.

I don't have it yet. The 2 guys above have it but it doesn't seem common. My 2022
Travato KL won't be in until sometime in June.
