42 • RV PRO • January 2018 rv-pro.com Winnebago Horizon 40A There is a new name in luxury RVing: The Winnebago Horizon. Winnebago Public Relations Specialist Sam Jefson says the new Horizon occupies a space between Winnebago's premier Grand Tour diesel pusher, with an MSRP of about $513,000, and the RV maker's Forza diesel pusher, with an MSRP of about $245,0000. "It's definitely one of the more luxurious models we make," he says simply. The Horizon is built on a strong foundation thanks to its Freightliner Maxum chassis, which features an 8.9-liter, 400-horsepower Cummins ISL turbo-charged diesel engine and an Allison six- speed 3000MH transmission. The Maxum chassis is notable for its superior weight distribution and the fact that it offers an abundance of exterior pass- through basement storage, according to Jefson. The 40-foot, quad-slide Horizon has a gross vehicle weight rating of 38,700 pounds and a GCWR of 53,700 pounds. The coach offers 15,000 pounds of towing capability. The Horizon's exterior is available in two exterior looks: traditional (which includes Platinum, Spiral Gray, Garnet and Beachwood) and contemporary (which includes Harvest Frost, Muscle Beige, Lava Gray and Crimson). In both cases, the Horizon comes standard with a full-body paint job. Still, it's inside the coach where the motorhome shines. The LED tube lighting and Villa luxury fur- niture, combined with porcelain tile flooring, create a look that can be described as sleek, sophisticated, contemporary and modern, all while featuring clean site lines. The galley area features slide-outs on both sides, giving it a big feel. In the galley, the all-electric coach features a convection oven and two burner convection cooktop, a residential-style S H O W C O V E R A G E S H O W C O V E R A G E Luxury comes standard in the 40-foot Winnebago Horizon. The LED tube lighting and Villa luxury furniture create a look that can be described as sleek, contemporary and modern.
