This review would pertain to Itasca Reyo 25T and Winnebago Via 25T which are identical except in name. Ours is a 2012, so some of the negatives would be due to age. The Itasca's were made through the 2016 model year and the Winnebago's through 2018. The house portion consisting of seating area, galley, bathroom and bedroom are made by Winnebago. The Sprinter 3500 dually chassis which is 25' 6" long and 11030 pounds, the turbo-diesel engine and cab are made by Mercedes-Benz. Almost any maintenance and repairs of the Mercedes-Benz portion are expensive. Mechanical failures in the 4 1/2 years we've owned it have been the cab A/C, DEF system, Nox sensors, windshield wiper system, Macpherson struts, electronic steps, chassis battery (twice) and although they haven't failed yet, we read many of these RV's are having problems with wheel sensors. Driving the RV is good except the chassis wobbles over uneven surfaces. To fix this problem with stabilizers presents problems with becoming overweight. So, we live with it rather than being overweight. Truly, the expense and failure rate of the mechanical parts make us regret our purchase although the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis is highly desired by many RVers. Being a small Class A body type, visibility from the cab is excellent. The Winnebago house portion is very good although with some design flaws in our opinion. The cabin captain's chairs fully rotate integrating them with the sofa for a great living room that accommodates 4 people. The OEM table is ridiculously heavy and we've replaced it with more versatile TV tables that can also be used outside. The TV in the living area is on a slide mechanism that is very useful! Unfortunately, the sofa (which is on the only slide) can't be turned into a bed because the round sink area extends too far into the living area from the galley area. This means that this RV can sleep only 2. There is storage under the sofa instead. (The rounded sink was removed in the 2017-2018 Via's, and a sofa bed was added increasing sleeping capacity to 4 in those two years.) The galley has the aforementioned sink, two-burner propane stove, convection microwave and excellent 3-way refrigerator. The negative is the poor quality laminate counter tops which are also in the bathroom. The bedroom has two narrow twin beds. Too narrow for us and we fixed this by making the entire bedroom area into a permanent king bed! There is also a small TV in the bedroom. The bathroom is adequate and has a Fantastic Fan. Storage inside and out is very good! There is an upgraded Cummins diesel generator (propane is standard.) However, there have been two expensive generator failures - motherboard and sensor which have totaled $1600. Our Reyo comes equiped with a driver's door which is very useful! When the driver's door is not optioned it is usually replaced by an electronic bed over the cab chairs which is good too. Parking, whether in a campground or parking lot is easy. The unit takes up less than 2 regular parking spots.

We have driven the awesome wee Motorhome around the entire perimeter of the USA with many stops in between and many a different adventure besides this one. I sometimes pull my toy hauler trailer filled with a big old 2002 Heritage Classic, bicycles. and lots of other goodies and sometimes our Wee Scion HB...effortlessly up and down the hills and flat lands! What a trust worthy solid motorhome it is...easy to learn all the functions of operating systems like plumbing, heaters and very easy to perform maintenance on! Gotta love when it's built by Winnebago! We took the daily tour at the plant to see the build procedures and we were very impressed... New one coming up within the next year!

After 4-1/2 years of owning the Reyo, the Winnebago part should be rated a solid 4 and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 1-1/2. We have had nothing but trouble with the Sprinter. What Mercedes-Benz charges is ridiculous. The only saving grace is that it gets about 15mpg. Driving the Sprinter is a weeble-wooble white knuckler, even after going with a Sumo suspension package. On the other hand, we love the 25T floorplan which consists of 2 twins in the rear that can be made into a king bed, a couch slide, a 3-way refrigerator, great interior and exterior storage, and a 2000-pound cargo carrying capacity. Negatives inside are that the twin beds are only 33" wide (we solved this by permanently making them into a huge king bed); there is a hump in the galley for a garbage can which negates the ability to put a sofa bed in the slide (this was corrected in later models).

Unless you want lots of problems, do not buy any RV with a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis. The Winnebago-built "house" portion is good. Because of primarily the multiple problems of the Sprinter chassis and diesel engine, in the four years we have owned this RV we have spent over $20,000; two-thirds of which are directly related to the Sprinter. Sensors are big problem. Any repair or maintenance at a Mercedes-Benz dealer is very expensive. Unfortunately, there are few Sprinter mechanics and not even most Mercedes-Benz dealerships have one. At the four-year mark (April of 2021), we have decided to sell this floorplan we love because we can't take all the costs associated with the Sprinter.

We bought this motorhome in April 2019. We have owned two fifth wheels before this mh. I retired and decided to travel for 3 months. We gone for 88 days drove to California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. We pulled a car behind it. Did not have trouble with the motorhome going up or down mountains. Went down a 9% grade in western Wyoming and I was really impressed. The reason we are selling this motorhome is because we have decided to sell our house and live full time in one. We need a bigger motorhome. This is a great little motorhome for someone who just wants to travel to the mountains for lakes for few weeks or even a month or two. It's in great shape.
