The Vista Rally and Sunstar Sport being introduced today are great looking products, they’re loaded with standard features; and best of all, they’re priced to be fantastic values!”

The new 2013 Winnebago Journey and Itasca Meridian models feature new exterior styling, new logos, six all-new paint schemes and the new 34B floorplan.
