Have you ever looked at a Ford Transit – generally used as spacious and functional cargo vans for small businesses on the go – and thought, “Boy, would that ever make for a great camper!”? Okay, you probably haven’t, but someone seems to have had that thought at some point, and we are all about to be better for it. The newest Ford Transit-based motorhome is called the Winnebago Fuse, which is a Class C motorhome. It gets built on the new Ford Transit cutaway chassis, and will appeal to those looking for something a little smaller and more utilitarian than those enormous (and enormously priced) ones you can pretty much inhabit for the remainder of your days.
Today we’ll tell you a little more about this latest motorhome option, and if you’re wondering about the Winnebago Fuse Motorhome release date, we’ve got a good idea of when that’ll be, too!
What configurations will be available for the Winnebago Fuse?
The Winnebago Fuse will come in two configurations:
- Rear bedroom slide-out with a queen bed
- Front slide-out, two twin beds and a rear bath
Both configurations are available with the Ford Power Stroke 3.2-liter 5-cylinder diesel, and have their living areas accessible behind the driving compartment. These motor homes are great choices for those of you who like to get outdoors a lot – and we sure live in the right place for you if that’s the case! – but who want just enough comforts to make it easy to get rested on the go without having to spring for hotels.
Do Other Manufacturers Besides Winnebago Make Motorhomes on the Transit Platform?
Yes! Others include Thor Motor Coach, Forest River Inc, Sunseeker, Forester, Coachmen Freelander and Coachmen Orion. In addition, Transit will be able to offer more choices for Class B Motorhomes for those looking to upgrade their experience a bit.
When Can I Get the Winnebago Fuse?
The Winnebago Fuse is slated to become available to customers starting in January 2016.
