The new 2016 Villagio by Renegade will be available for purchase at Guarantee RV by May, 2015 in Calgary. Renegade custom coaches and trailers have been in business since 1997. The company continues to be an industry leader with their products in performance, quality and innovation. Renegade has been known for its innovative approach by offering customization of the products customers choose. The newly acquired Villagio units by Guarantee RV will be resource, energy, and water efficient along with the indoor environmental quality being superb. The Villagio was SILVER rated by Certified Green TRA certification.
The Villagio includes the following eco-friendly features which sets them apart from the competition: Azdel walls versus Luan; composite cabinetry; no carpet throughout any of the coaches so no allergens to be absorbed; energy efficient LED lighting throughout the interior and exterior. The In-plant recycling of cardboard, wood, metal, wire is used. The wood used is certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). The water efficiency is top notch since the Villagio is designed with short hot water lines, low flow faucets, and a water efficient shower and toilet. Indoor air quality in this vehicle is fantastic since they designed it with formaldehyde free insulation, wallboard and hard flooring as well as zero VOC bedding.
The Azdel composite panel technology is leading edge and is eco-friendly. Features of this technology are:
- Composite panels comprised of Fiberglass, Polypropylene resin, and Polymer Scrim facings
- 50% lighter than Luan plywood
- Moisture resistant which protects against mold or mildew
- 3X better thermal insulation than wood
- Odorless, NO Formaldehyde
- Sound and energy absorbing
- Impact ad puncture resistant
- Made in North America
There is also cab climate control for days when the sun makes the motorhome front area blazing hot as you’re driving down the highway. Sun visors and privacy shade are added too. Cruise control is one of the beneficial features along with a steering wheel that tilts which will prevent hand, wrist and arm tension. Shifting the steering wheel to a different position intermittently will alleviate any tension in your hands and arms that may be acquired from remaining in the same position for long periods of time.
On the sides of the motorhome are turn cameras that prevent blind spots which are a huge benefit as this feature increases visibility and safety.
The Villagio was built on a Mercedes-Benz 3500 Sprinter, one of the best chassis on the market today. The BlueTEC 3.0L Turbo Diesel engine comes with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Exceptional qualities of the Adaptive ESP® technology are featured in the Villagio which makes it unique and supports safe driving practices. ESP® is the abbreviation for Electronic Stability Program. The computer senses how the vehicle is responding at a certain speed and reacts accordingly to avoid a rollover. If you’re carrying a heavy load, the ESP® system compensates by adapting to balance the weight in the vehicle.
It’s worth noting that the ESP® enhances the vehicle with two active safety systems: Antilock Braking System (ABS) and the Traction Control System (TCS). The difference between these two systems is that ABS prevents the wheels from locking when braking whereas TCS prevents the wheels from spinning when starting off and accelerating. According to some international studies, it’s beneficial to have ESP® because it could prevent up to 80% of all skidding crashes. It’s like a smart car which recognizes if skidding is imminent so the ESP® technology helps to avoid it, allowing drivers to stay in control of their vehicles. (Reference: Car Engineer)
