LOS ANGELES, August 9, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Wingamm, the leading supplier of luxury compact RVs in Europe, announced today that it brings Europe The most sought after and innovative motorhomes in the US market to meet the demand of US buyers for more compact and luxurious motorhomes. The Wingamm Oasi 540 is the first Micro Class VR (vehicles less than 18 feet long that can accommodate four people and with a full interior bathroom) available for sale at United States. Wingamm’s expansion into the United States will be through an exclusive distribution agreement with TM Motorhome Sales, LLC. Wingamm will launch its most compact model, the Oasi 540, and sales will begin in California and New Jersey, with national expansion planned.
“My vision has always been to bring my family brand of compact European motorhomes to America. We are currently sold in 15 countries across Europe and Asia and the United States has always been the next step on our roadmap. Our plan fell into place when I met Tony diamond and the TM motorhome sales team about two years ago at our head office in Verona, Italy. Tony was very excited about the changing trends in the way Americans want to live and travel and the gap in the compact RV market that Wingamm could fill. It took the persistence and innovation of our team of incredible engineers and consultants in both Italy and the United States to create a Wingamm Oasi 540 for the American market and now it is officially coming to America, ”said Lorena Turri, CEO of Wingamm.
In the past few weeks alone, as word naturally spread that Wingamm’s Oasi 540 (a YouTube sensation with a single video of the camper van garnering 3.5 million views) was coming to America, the US office was inundated with over 3,500 phone calls and emails from interested buyers. The waiting list has grown to over 550 buyers and counts. Additionally, over 30 RV dealers, including some of the largest in America, have been in contact with TM Motorhome Sales seeking to become a Wingamm dealer.
“When we first met Lorena and her team, we were developing a technology-based on-demand RV rental concept called Squirrel – think Lime or Bird Scooter but with RVs. the world, rating every VR model in the US, Germany, France, United Kingdom and Italy, in search of the most compact, luxurious and technologically advanced motorhome in the world. As soon as we saw the Wingamm Oasi 540 we knew we had found it. From there the partnership evolved with Lorena and we became Wingamm’s distributor in North America. Our go-to-market strategy is to showcase Wingamm’s range of RVs in sought-after malls across America alongside other innovative consumer brands like Apple, Tesla and Peloton. We are initially launching in California (Los Angeles) and in New Jersey, with a national deployment by 2023 ”, declares Tony diamond, co-owner of TM Motorhome Sales.
What sets Wingammm and the Oasi 540 apart from all other manufacturers in the world is its custom fiberglass unibody hull. The unibody shell not only gives the Oasi 540 its distinctive elegant and beautiful charm, but it enables innovation in almost all aspects of design and functionality, especially the compact size. Four other strengths of the Wingamm Oasi 540 are its bedroom, bathroom, sewer system and air conditioning.
“There is already a bit of frenzy since the announcement of the arrival of the Oasi 540 in America. To understand the fervor of buyers and dealers, it’s important to have context for what makes Wingamm so special. A CEO of one of the biggest VR brands admitted that Europe is about 15 years ahead of the United States in terms of design. But Wingamm is a stand-alone company globally, not just in the United States, ”says Diamond.
The main features of the Oasi 540 include:
The Wingamm Oasi 540 is only 17’9 “long. For context, a standard US parking space is 19 ‘long and most Ford F-150 pickups are longer. Turri and Diamond believe that all arrows – the Vanlife phenomenon, remote working, the trend towards mobility and experiential living, and the high cost of apartments in large cities – indicate that living and working from an Oasi 540 is a proposition of attractive value. And due to its compact size, people can #vanlife in big cities as well as in nature.
All American Class B motorhomes built inside existing Mercedes Sprinters, Ford Transits, and Dodge Promaster vans have either a tent bed or a cot that uses up much of the valuable living space. The Wingamm Oasi 540 does neither. Wingamm’s custom fiberglass monocoque shell has allowed its designers and engineers to reinvent the concept of a bed in a motorhome. By recessing the bed into the ceiling when not in use, then elegantly extending it as needed, Wingamm has created a more usable floor plan space for a kitchen, bathroom and living room / dining room. larger and more functional dining rooms.
The bathroom leaves nothing to be desired. It’s like the one found in a hotel – although a bit smaller. There is a standing shower, sink and vanity with counter space, toilet and medicine cabinet with mirror. Having a full bathroom in such a small motorhome is unheard of in the world.
Wingamm’s innovative cassette sewage system is a game-changer. Sewage disposal is a major problem in the RV industry. Wingamm’s sewer cassette system plugs into the exterior side of the van and, when engaged, contains a catalyst inside that quickly breaks down material into an easily disposable liquid. When full, the cassette can be removed from the side of the van and carried as a carry-on suitcase to any bathroom in America where it can be simply emptied down the toilet and rinsed.
Air conditioning and acoustics
The Oasi 540 has radiant underfloor heating like people would find in the bathroom of a luxury hotel or state-of-the-art home. In winter as in summer, the monocoque hull offers superior insulation because, unlike the metal used in all other class B motorhomes, fiberglass is not a thermal conductor; there is no temperature dispersion from the inside to the outside. The result is unparalleled thermal comfort and huge savings in energy consumption. The unibody cab, combined with a proprietary structural sealant, also eliminates the vibrations and friction noises that plague the operators of most motorhomes.
The US compact motorhome market is ripe for disruption, and Wingamm plans to meet that demand. To learn more, visit https://www.wingamm.com/us.
Wingamm has been family owned and operated since 1977 and our tradition of prioritizing quality and the satisfaction of Wingamm customers has never diminished. In 1982, we were the first motorhome manufacturer in the world to create a living cell made from a fiberglass monocoque. With this, Wingamm was born. Today the company is headed by the CEO Lorena Turri and based at Italy and available worldwide. Visit https://www.wingamm.com/us to learn more.
