I'm not an RVer (yet) but I hope to be real soon so please be nice to me
I'm considering purchasing a used 2009 Winnebago Chalet class c so I've been trying to do some research about it online. However, I can't even find any information about it on the Winnebago website. What gives? Am I missing something?
Why does Winnebago not post a single thing about their Chalet class C model?
This Outfit sells lots of used Chalets. You can look at a few floorplans.
If you enter their rental area, you can get virtual tours, perhaps of additional models.
I like Chalets. First of all they ARE a Winnebago, which overall is a good product line. They're also spec'd for utility not eye candy.

Check out the 24 foot 24V (Access) column in this 2012 Winnebago chart for, I think, an almost identical model to the Chalet 24 footer. The Access Premier name applies in the chart for the 28 feet on up models - I think Access Premier models are a slight quality upgrade from the single 24 foot Access model:
Nothing on the website because that is for retail customers and Winnebago does not sell the Chalet retail. That line is for fleet sales, which mostly means rentals.
The Chalet line may have similar floorplans to some retail models, but trim and equipment might be different. For example may have vinyl in places a Minnie, Spirit, Access or Outlook would have had carpet, more utilitarian but less fragile fixtures.
Other manufacturers have done the same, you find "special" models on the used market that weren't in retail catalogs. Some names have been cycled back and forth between retail and fleet, but Pathfinder and Roadmaster come to mind from Coachmen, and Gulfstream once used the Yellowstone name for fleet models.
You will find the Chalet name on Ford and Chevy chassis C's, Sprinter chassis C's and A gassers. I've not yet seen a Chalet diesel pusher.
