Hi all,

Going to look at this 2013 Winnebago Vista 35b today.

Has 18k miles.

We are having a hard time finding a unit for our family. They all seem to be bad workmanship and quality.

Would love some reviews of folks on the Winnebago vista as I don’t know much about them.

Thank you!

Vista is Winnie's entry level line. I see you looked at Tiffins previously. The Vista will not have nearly the fit and finish the Tiffin does. But Winnie does make a good coach. You are looking at a MH that's 10 years old so I'd be less concerned with who the manufacturer was and more about how it was maintained and it's condition.

Bet you the tires haven’t been replaced..”lots of tread left.” Factor that in if you make an offer.

We had a 2014 Vista 35b for five years. Bought it new. I was very pleased with the build quality. Had no real need for warranty work. The fiberglass roof is good to have but definitely check the seams that run the full length both sides where roof attaches to sidewall channel to make sure sealed properly. Winnie spells out in manual the required maintenance there and you’ll want to ensure previous owner hasn’t ignored that. If the coach has been maintained properly, and tires have been replaced as noted by previous poster since originals would be approaching 10 years, these are really nice units imo. They also handle well for a gasser. My previous mh was a 2007 Winnie gasser with 19.5” tires and the 35b with the 22s handled infinitely better.

Thank you! They are asking $85k.

Seems to be in great condition. Did a full walk through and drove it around as well.

So the Tiffin we looked at was a 2011, and this 2013 Winnebago was nicer and had more features.

We were very surprised at how nice it was. Very well kept and had everything we wanted.

Thank you all for the help and advice as I’m not sure I ever would have thought about Winnebagos!
