Voyage 38J

Even if you’re an experienced RVer, every now and then it hits you: This RV stuff is pretty
cool. We experienced just such a moment during a recent test drive of the Winnebago Voyage
38J Class A coach, a rig that makes it easy to enjoy the best that RVing has to offer. We
were camped on a friend’s Puget Sound, Washington-region property after spending the day
helping set up her house for an upcoming holiday party. Finally back in the coach at a late
hour, our wet raingear was hung to dry and warm, cozy slippers were retrieved from the
closet. I lay back in the lounge chair while my “better half” curled up on the sofa and our
favorite late-news show played on the 27-inch lounge television, set low at eyeball level
for easy viewing. Nary a drop of the storm-driven rain snuck in through the slideout room
seals, and the hydraulic jacks held the coach firm against the tempest. We looked at each
other, warm and dry and happy in our portable home surroundings, and agreed — this, in a
small nutshell example, is what RVing is meant to be. Of course, such moments have a lot to
do with the coach you’re camping in, and sumptuous living features abound in the Voyage. A
few select options made the test coach even better, although it’s no slouch in stock trim.
Gas-powered coach prices are inching up, and the 38J topped off at $145,685 MSRP as driven.
Not exactly entry level, but par for the high-quality gas-powered-coach course. The choices
in top-notch gas-powered coaches are expanding every day — and the Voyage series is a
highly competitive player in that field. For full test impressions and details on the
