Winnebago Industries unveiled a number of RVs at the 50th Annual Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Nov. 27-29.
“Our motorized and towable lineups at this year’s RVIA National Trade Show were phenomenal,” says Winnebago Industries’ Chairman of the Board, CEO and President Randy Potts. “Not only did we show some of our hottest floorplans, but also a number of concepts were shown in order to gauge dealer response. What we heard was positive and armed with this information – we are going to continue to take Winnebago Industries in exciting new directions that will meet and exceed the needs and demands of today’s RVers.”
Highlights of the Company’s motorized division included:
Winnebago Minnie Winnie 25B
The Winnebago Minnie Winnie unveiled a new 25B floorplan at the show. Winnebago feels this value-priced coach is perfect for consumers just entering the RV lifestyle or experienced RVers seeking a great value. With a rear corner bed and bath, the front of the coach offers a dinette with opposing sofa/sleeper. An overhead bunk provides yet another place to sleep at night, while the galley is mid-coach.
Winnebago Via 25P
Built on the Mercedes-Benz F50 cowl chassis, the new 25P features a rear corner bed and bath. A front slideout room provides extra space, including a roomy wardrobe and either a standard dinette or optional sofa/sleeper. The fully equipped galley is located on the passenger side of the coach.
Winnebago Sightseer 35G
Also unveiled was a new Winnebago Sightseer floorplan, the 35G, that features the new InTable. The InTable functions as an end table, dining table, island, countertop extension and desk in one. Plus, it offers built-in storage and is moveable. Combined with the extendable sectional sofa sleeper, Euro recliner and innovative TV location, the InTable helps make the 35G functional and comfortable.
New exteriors were also highlighted at the show with concept paint and graphics packages on display. Luxury Class A gas motor homes, the Winnebago Adventurer and Itasca Suncruiser, also unveiled new front-end styling.
“Not to be outdone, the towables line really turned heads,” says Potts. “At the forefront is the new Cherry Red Minnie. It is a truly striking trailer that is feature packed and fun. The new Winnebago Ultralite line was well received, and the full body paint Raven fifth wheel is definitely appealing for consumers looking for a high-end trailer.”
The new Cherry Red exterior and a new bunk model, the 2301BH, were the highlights in the Minnie trailer lineup. The 2301GH comes standard with a sofa, full-sized dinette, queen bed, twin bunks, pantry, ample wardrobe and counter space – all in a compact 26-foot length.
Winnnebago’s newest towable entry is the Ultralite travel trailer. The Ultralite exterior featuers a color-infused tan gel coat, poured fiberglass walls, spectacular graphics and frameless windows. Inside you’ll find a radius ceiling with LED lights, 80-inch beds, island galley, and bathroom. The Winnebago Ultralite also weighs less than 6,000 pounds allowing it to be towed with most smaller tow vehicles.
On the value side, the new Remington 2750BHS Ultralite was on display. Sporting a new cool grey high gloss exterior fiberglass, new countertops and a low entry level price point, Winnebago says the new Remington Ultralite provides a high quality, value priced unit for those consumers that are more budget minded.
Winnebago says the popular 3300CK featuring full body paint was a hit at the show. Center stage in this trailer is an island kitchen with solid surface countertop and a swing out cabinet end. A rear entertainment center, full-sized sofa, residential swivel rocker recliners, and dining table and chairs round out the flagship Raven.
