November 27th, 2019 by


Winnebago the long-standing motorhome maker, has recently created the Boldt 70KL, a camper van built on the body of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Winnebago Industries is an American manufacturer known for their incredible designs of motor homes, and have products ranging from trailers to vans. The Boldt 70KL falls under the “Class B” category that consists of four other vans that have been converted such as the Winnebago Revel and the Ram ProMaster.

The design of this 2020 Sprinter was inspired and named after German explorer Alexander von Humboldt, a naturalist who was known for his expeditions to Central and South America. 

This motor home is optimized for use during all four seasons. Amenities include a full bathroom, a kitchen, a sound system, a television and so much more!

Power and Engine

With the help of the chassis’s turbo-diesel engine, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is given 188 horsepower at 3,800 RPM. The torque has 325 ft-lbs at 1,400 RPM and the engine has a standard number of 6 cylinders. 

Additionally,  there are 3 solar panels that assist in providing energy to the van. There is also the Pure³ Advanced Energy System, which provides 11,600 watt-hours of power in the rechargeable battery. This allows drivers to take the RV anywhere, and even go off-the-grid.

Exterior and Interior 

The overall exterior is quite a standard look for a motor home. As of yet, it only comes in one color, which is Iridium Silver. It has LED lights that illuminate the electric patio awning and also comes with a wash station.

The real magic is in the interior, as the LED lights illuminate all over and have gorgeous Vinyl flooring.  

One can find storage space throughout, such as truck storage, a front overhead cabinet shelf, as well as a wardrobe.

The kitchen area is wonderfully designed. There you’ll find a refrigerator and freezer unit. It also comes with a stainless steel sink (with a cover) and a bamboo cutting board.
