PloppyWe love ours. Great mileage. Easy to drive. Quality Mercedes. Everywhere we stop people come up and compliment on what an awesome vehicle it is. Get tons of compliments esp. when stopping for fuel. A definite keeper...if you are thinking of getting one you wont regret it...love it!Re: 2010 Winnebago ERA class B motorhome
Happy HighwayThe 2014 Winnebago Trend 23B is a nice vehicle for me, as a Senior Citizen. I did have the Dealership install "running boards" to make it easier to enter and exit the cab area. For one or two persons, in retirement, the space works for me. It might be a bit cozy with children on long trips. A very good mileage vehicle for those of us on Social Security, just wanting to travel each day.Re: 2014 Winnebago Trend 23B Class C Motorhome Review

Mel SmithGreat unit by Winnebago. We have 2006 View J and it has about 50,000 miles on it. We average 16.5 mpg. It has one achellies heel. The turbo reasonator has a nasty habit of melting and delaminating puting you in "Limp Mode" of about 45 mph! This has happened to us FOUR (4) count 'em 4! times causing spoiled trips and dangerous times on the interstates. Having personally talked to Mercedes people they have NO FIX..nor one planned. The turboreasonator melts because it is made out of PLASTIC. Mercedes. Plastic.? I carry a spare with me now. I have ordered an aluminum aftermarket one from the SPRINTER STORE (online). They say it's just a bit noisier but it doesn't MELT! BY THE WAY I HAVE MET dozens of View/Navion owners who have had the same thing happen!Dozens! My advice? Buy a VIEW, NAVION or VIA or ERA and immediately replace the turbo reasonator. The hose likes to uncouple as well occasionally. Finally. I find it hard to believe that Mercedes doesn't fix this by a new part that doesn't melt. All I've gotten from Mercedes is a shrug of the shoulders. Check the internet comments. You'll see this is a widespread problem.Re: Winnebago View class C motorhome
