Full-size commercial van sales are slowing slightly after a great 2016, but Ford and Winnebago predict continued growth in the RV business in the Class B division. This is a class of motorhomes that are based on full-size commercial vans, such as the Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster, or Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The RV featured here is the Winnebago Paseo, and it is based on the 2017 Ford Transit 350. This configuration includes a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and dually rear wheels for extra weight carrying capacity. It can also be available with a 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine.
Winnebago outfits the interior of the van to make it a proper RV. It has seating for six and includes all of the creature comforts: galley, wet bath, water heater, refrigerator, dinette, and folding couches. The Paseo is rated to tow up to 5,000 lbs when properly equipped.
2017 Winnebago Paseo pricing starts at $114,988.
