Winnebago’s highly successful and ever popular Esperance model range of 13 differing floor plans has now been expanded by one more, a unique and stylish motorhome – the all new Esperance Premium.
The Esperance Premium offers the space and comfort of an A Class motorhome yet in a convenient size. At only 8metres long, the Esperance Premium provides the practicality of a mid-sized motorhome but with an extremely spacious feel to it.
The Esperance Premium is an A Class motorhome meaning that both the cab and the motorhome body are especially manufactured rather than just incorporating the standard chassis cab. A class motorhomes offer the advantage of a wider more spacious, easily accessible cabin as the cabin width is the same size as the rest of the motorhome unlike the traditional motorhomes built on a cab chassis where the cab is somewhat narrower.
Sit back and relax in the ultra-leather driver and passenger armchairs which swivel to form part of the living area. The huge one piece windscreen provides exceptional views of the passing scenery. All your instruments are conveniently located thanks to the large wrap around dash, controls such as the very handy cruise control function, just set your speed and enjoy the journey.
You can cruise along the highways and those unsealed roads comfortably and economically as the Esperance Premium is powered by an Iveco 50C18, 3 litre turbo diesel engine coupled with 6 speed automated manual transmission, the dual rear wheels driving the Esperance along with ease.
A host of safety equipment is offered as standard including the ABS braking system which prevents the wheels from locking in an emergency braking situation, EBD which distributes the braking force evenly over the front and rear wheels and ESP which compensates for driver error by adjusting the action of the engine and the brakes.
Inside the motorhome, the feeling of space is accentuated by the electric slide out which, at the push of a button slides the living room wall out creating a huge amount of internal living space.
The kitchen is a gourmet’s delight with full oven, grill and cooktop, exhaust fan and sink with hot and cold water. The refrigerator offers a larger freezer and automatically controls the use of power, switching itself to 240 volt, battery or gas as required thus your food and drinks will remain cold.
The rear bedroom area has a large walk around bed that comfortably sleeps two, if you would like to bring along a couple more guests, just pull down the bed above the driver and passenger seat or convert the roomy dinette.
The bathroom is located at the rear with separate shower and toilet facilities and as the toilet is not part of the shower recess, it remains dry. The porcelain bowl toilet flushes to a large sealed wheel-along cassette.
Apart from the luxurious necessities, Esperance Premium offers a host of standard items such as remote controlled roof air conditioning for heating and cooling, a separate ducted diesel furnace system as well, a large LCD television with inbuilt DVD player inbuilt, a 7” colour screen GPS system incorporating a reversing camera and DVD player.
Esperance Premium further expands the already impressive Winnebago model range, joining the well-known and popular models, both campervan and motorhome – Escape, Diversion, Birdsville, Esperance, Menindee, Longreach and Classic and the other two new models, Eyre and Ceduna.
