We’ve all had times in our lives where we’ve been doing something for a while, and we’ve learned a lot from the experience. How would it be, on one of those occasions, if you were given the opportunity to do it again, with a clean slate, and you were able to pull out all the stops? THAT’S the situation that Chris from Winnebago found himself in when he was tasked with designing the new Winnebago Boldt.
If you’ve been following our videos, you’ve seen Chris Bienert before. He’s on the design team for Winnebago’s Class B products. Over the years, through the ERA, the Travato, the Paseo, and the Revel, he’s amassed quite a bit of knowledge. Knowledge about how people use Class Bs, and about what does and doesn’t work in a camper van. He brought all of that experience to bear in this latest rig. If you asked him, he’d say it was his best work yet.
We filmed this back in December, before the Boldt was known. In fact, this isn’t even a final version of the Boldt that you’ll see in the video. It was a prototype that Winnebago had been testing – hard – to work out any kinks.
This is NOT one of our typical RV reviews, since the RV we had wasn’t a final version. Instead, we used the opportunity to go a little more in-depth with Chris about the rig, and about why he made some of the choices that he did in the design.
We’ll have a full review later, but until we do, we thought you would like knowing a little more about the Boldt, firsthand.
