Our good friend, Josh the RV Nerd recently had the chance to explore the new Winnebago Access series, which is introducing a fresh perspective to the stick and tin camper category. These are Winnebago’s first stick and tin campers.

Regarding the Access 30BH, Josh remarks, this isn’t the smallest bunkhouse one would come across, its got some size to it, but this budget-friendly camper is packed with a host of features that are sure to make any trip a delight.

Winnebago is renowned for its extensive, quality core features that run consistently through its entire towable lineup and add up to a great camping experience.

Spacious and Flexible Layouts in the Access 30BH

30BH Layout

A standout aspect of the 30BH is its spacious layout that offers both a big super slide and a private bedroom.

This layout also introduces a fully enclosed private bunk room, a feature that remains quite rare in the industry. The private bunkhouse adds a touch of convenience, allowing individuals to move freely without disturbing others during the night.

Moreover, the bunk room can easily transform into a walk-in closet or an office space, offering a level of versatility that adapts to your changing needs.

This particular feature sets the Winnebago 30BH apart as not just a family bunk model, but a flexible space that can serve various purposes, enhancing the overall functionality of the RV.

Interior Innovations: Access 30BH Has a Refreshing Take

One of the notable characteristics of the 30BH is its departure from the typical stick and tin aesthetics. The interiors of this model do not resemble the traditional stick and tin camper, presenting a sleek and attractive design that defies expectations.

Winnebago Access 30BH Interior Features

Access 30BH Living Area

  • Spacious Living Area: Features a big super slide living room, providing ample space, especially on rainy days.

  • Flooring: The RV is carpetless and has ventless flooring, with heat vents located near the floor line under the cabinets to maintain maximum drawer capacity.

  • Furniture: Includes a “cuddle-compliant” theater seat as a standard feature – with an option to have a tri-fold hide-a-bed. One of the models comes with a jackknife sofa due to space constraints.
  • Color Palette: Has a light and bright color palette enhancing the visual spaciousness of the area.

Access 30BH Kitchen

  • Pedestal-style dinette: (note: not preferred by Josh the RV Nerd, due to knee-knocking issues)

Winnebago Access 30BH Exterior Features

  • The tongue is expected to feature a neat power box housing all the 12-volt wiring, reducing the clutter and enhancing aesthetic appeal (prototype stage, may undergo changes).
  • Potential integration of an all-inclusive power box to organize and conceal wiring components, similar to features found in Keystone, Crossroads, and Heartland RVs.

Access 30BH Tank and Utility Area

  • Durable .03 aluminum skin, thicker than the standard .024 found in most stick and tin campers.
  • Nose constructed with 0.04 thickness, adding to the robustness.
  • Problematic placement of sewer outlets, particularly one located just in front of the tire, under the super slide – could be challenging to access (feedback to possibly address before final production).

Winnebago Access 30BH Pros and Cons

Winnebago Access 30BH Pros:

  • Competitive Pricing Strategy: The 30BH model is positioned as a price-aggressive option in Winnebago’s lineup, making it an appealing choice for budget-conscious consumers looking to enjoy Winnebago’s renowned quality and innovative features without a hefty price tag. 
  • Versatile Bunk Room: The 30BH model features a fully enclosed private bunk room that can function not only as a sleeping area but can also be transformed into an office or walk-in closet, offering versatility for various needs.
  • Interior Design and Height: The RV has a refreshing interior with a light, bright color palette and higher ceilings (6ft 8in) than usual, borrowing design features from their mini laminated series, which gives it a more spacious and luxurious feel.

Winnebago Access 30BH Cons:

  • Limited Window Coverage on Campsite Side: Despite its many features, the floor plan does not emphasize campsite window coverage, potentially limiting the natural light and views of the surroundings from inside the RV.
  • Possible Lack in Storage Space: Potentially limited dresser space in the bunk room, which might pose a challenge for accommodating personal items, especially for extended stays.
  • Budget-Conscious Design: While a plus for many value-minded families, this trailer was designed to be budget-friendly and may not appeal to those who are looking for luxury features and options.

Who is the Access 30BH a Good Fit For?

The 30BH is a Good Fit for:

  • Families with Children: The 30BH features a private bunk room, which can be excellent for families with children, providing a separate space for kids to sleep and play.
  • Remote Workers: The private bunk room can potentially be transformed into an office, making this model an excellent choice for people who are looking to customize their space according to their needs.
  • Budget-Conscious Buyers: Given its competitive pricing strategy, this RV model might appeal to budget-conscious buyers who are looking for a quality RV without a hefty price tag.

The 30Bh is a Bad Fit for:

  • Those Seeking Expansive Window Views on the Campsite: The transcript mentions that the floor plan doesn’t offer substantial campsite window coverage, which might disappoint buyers who prioritize having expansive views from inside their RV.
  • Individuals Looking for an Ultra-Spacious Layout: Although the model has a super slide living room offering some space, it might not be the best option for those looking for an ultra-spacious layout, particularly concerning the private bunk room and front bedroom areas which some may find to be a bit cramped.
  • Traditional Cooking Enthusiasts: The RV has replaced the traditional propane oven with a convection microwave, which might not be suitable for those who prefer a classic oven setup for their cooking needs.
