If you’re looking for a versatile Class B camper van that offers the latest technology and a modern design, then you should consider the Winnebago Solis Pocket 36A. The Solis is the perfect camper van for two to three adventurers—it can sleep up to three people—and it’s designed with a customizable layout inspired by the popular van life movement and custom builds.

Extend Your Camping Season

Winnebago has built the Solis Pocket 36A with the Truma® VarioHeat™ heating system. This system—paired with proprietary insulation, water lines inside the coach, and ducted heating—provides you with the ability to camp even after the temperature drops.

Winnebago also added a removable 20-pound propane tank located inside the coach for extended-season use. This means the Solis 36A is one of the only camper vans on the market with this particular setup.

Versatile Living Space With Storage

The living space of the 36A is designed for more than one person to make the most of the compact space. The dinette converts into a daybed, sofa, loveseat, or bed, there’s configurable storage to support remote workers, and the adjustable and removable table, as well as the swivel seats, enable you to configure the interior to suit your needs no matter what they are.

Winnebago also gave the camper van innovative storage options, including a MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) panel to secure a removable galley storage pack, outdoor gear, and any other accessories you might have.

Additionally, there’s a raised-platform Murphy+ bed that has enough storage underneath it for a bicycle and other gear. There are also cargo tie-downs in the back of the vehicle. In the dinette sidewall supports, you’ll find multi-use bottom-hinged storage cabinets, additional pockets, and cup holders.

RAM Promaster® Chassis Makes This Possible

If you’re unfamiliar with the RAM Promaster chassis, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s fuel-efficient thanks to its front-wheel-drive layout. Under the hood, you’ll find the 280 hp 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine. That engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic 62TE transmission. There’s also a 180-amp alternator and ABS. This chassis can tow up to 3,500 pounds and offers a 4-pin wiring connector.

What really makes the Promaster chassis so special is its relatively low floor. Front-wheel drive means the driveline doesn’t run the length of the vehicle, enabling you to have a lower floor overall. That said, Winnebago has taken special pains to ensure the ground clearance is more than enough for adventuring. Also, the digital rearview mirror provides a clear view behind the vehicle, making backing up easy.

When all is said and done, the Winnebago Solis 36A is a motorhome that takes a popular and interesting design and adds new equipment to it that should greatly appeal to all adventurers out there.
