We’ve added diesel availability to our entire Class A lineup including the amazingly fuel efficient Winnebago Via and Itasca Reyo - the first Class A coaches built on the Dodge/Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis. Add in our industry leading Class C products, and our 2010 lineup has something for everyone.”

“What many RV owners don't realize is that there are plenty of inexpensive ways to go green.” comments ShadePro.net President, Steve Smoot. “One simple item all RV-ers can do to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint is to install shade products on their RV. This not only helps limit air conditioning use during the hot summer months, but also reduces the fuel consumption by running the generator.”

The Vista Shade is an inside mounted windshield cover for Class A motor homes that blocks approximately 94% of the sun's hot rays and saves energy by keeping the sun's rays out and the inside of the coach cool.
