rving, I "almost" have my wife on board about looking at one of these....look forward to anything else about your likes and dislikes about this unit!

Hello FrontrangeRVer

My first big trip is coming up end of January, NY to FL. From my local driving so far I am very impressed with the build quality of this coach. It is very tight and quiet no rattles or squeaks it handles great and fits in anywhere with great gas mileage. You could almost drive this on a daily basis & not feel guilty or financially stressed. I bought this for traveling point A to B with few stay overs with no intention of long term camping but that may change:) If you plan on spending extended periods of time on the raod you might consider the "25R floorplan" ( I have the 25T ) for additional floor space or if you plan on hitting the road for 6 months at a time you might consider something larger in the same price range like the 2010 Itasca Sunstar or the Gulf Stream Montaj but for my needs the Reyo is perfect. It has all the economical luxuries and handling of a Class B and then some but in a Class A chassis.

I stumbled across a site that can help you see more about some Winnebago models new or used.  If they have one in stock, they do a video walk through of it.   

http://www.lichtsinn.com/new-rvs-for-sale.aspx

They do a Via 25R and 25T video.  When viewing, click on the YouTube logo, then you can choose full screen.

We finally have the R floorplan on site.  Yes, with slide in you can walk all the way back, it is a bit tight, but workable.  Any questions or measurements just ask, just outside the back door from me and tape measure.

Just thought I'd mention that in September when we attended the Wahington State WIT Club rally a NW Washington dealer had a VIA there on display.  It was purchased and driven home that Sunday at the end of the rally!

Bill nice to see the R shipping. If max floor space in the Via/Reyo is priority Id recommend the R.
I have the T and while it fits my needs ( I love the bedroom ) it can get a little cramped front to back if you travel with more then a few people at a time.

They're both on a Sprinter chassis but the Via 25R has a full wall slide.  Then there are the Itasca-Winnebago trim differences.
