Yes, it’s technically a van. Heck, it’s even built on a Ford Transit van chassis. For all intents and purposes, though, the Winnebago Paseo is a veritable RV, with conveniences and creature comforts that will leave other van-lifers you come across on the road drooling with envy.
A class B motorhome, the van makes the already large Ford Transit look even bigger, with its raised roof and low-profile body. It’s powered by a 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 engine that’s mated to a six-speed automatic overdrive transmission, with four-wheel ABS brakes, stainless wheel liners, and a 5,000-pound capacity trailer hit to accommodate all your off-the-road camping adventures.
The Winnebago Paseo comes with a floorplan called 48p, which reinforces the two-person cab with some serious living amenities out back. That includes a versatile rear section that serves as a lounge area, a cross-coach sleeping space, and a dining section, with fold-out tables and beds enabling the multi-purpose function, along with a dedicated bath and shower area, with its own toilet and fold-down sink. Of course, there’s a kitchen, which comes located at the center of the coach, with its own countertop, sink, fridge, and plenty of cabinet space for anything else you want to keep close while on the road.
Inside the cab, the driver gets access to a 6.5-inch infotainment system, swiveling seats (so you can check on your passengers easily) with three-point seatbelts, and even a fold out table at the back of the passenger seat, in case your driving companion wants to get some work done on a laptop. Other features include a 2,800-watt gas generator, onboard heating and cooling system, pre-installed electricals and plumbing, 26-gallon fresh water tank, a 19-inch TV, and optional solar panels.
Pricing for the Winnebago Paseo starts at $115,000.
