Winnebago Industries, Inc. has a host of new 2015 products on display at the Pennsylvania RV Show in Hershey, September 8-14, 2014.

Leading the way is a new Brave 31C floorplan that is making its debut at the show. The new Brave brings back the classic “eyebrow” design. Beyond appearance, the new Brave is offered in three floorplans.

Available in both the Brave and Tribute lines, the new 31C features a full-wall slideout on the driver’s side of the vehicle, while there’s a dinette slideout on the passenger side. With an available StudioLoft bed over the cab area, sofa/bed, and a rear queen or optional king bed, there is sleeping available for up to six inside. The Brave and Tribute 31C also have plentiful storage, including a large wardrobe across the bedroom wall. A split bath with privacy doors on either side is also included in the 31C package.

Winnebago is also showcasing a “Flame Red” Travato complete with optional bike rack, luggage rack and ladder and kayak racks. Built on the Ram ProMaster chassis, the Travato Class B has a flexible floorplan, complete with murphy bed that attaches to the wall.

Another new Class B floorplan is the Era 170C. Built on the Mercedes-Benz chassis, the Era 170C features a slideout and hydronic heating system. The 170C also features a storage system in the rear of the unit that has a unique door that goes into the shower stall, providing easy access to large items such as golf clubs that you may want to store inside.

The Ellipse Ultra 42QL is also on display. Featuring the “Bronze Halo” premium exterior full-body paint package and the interior “After Hours” fabric collection with “Glazed Java” cabinetry, the Ellipse Ultra is all about luxury. The Grand Tour and Ellipse Ultra feature the 450 hp Cummins turbo-charged diesel engine on the Freightliner Maxum chassis tag axle chassis with lowered rail construction. Inside the Grand Tour and Ellipse enjoy luxury six-way adjustable Villa cab seats in Ultraleather with power footrest, heat and massage and power lumber support. They also swivel to become seating elements within the living space when parked. Amenities include polished porcelain tiles, large skylight with powered shade, Villa furniture, keyless entry and six full-body paint packages. Multiplex switch panels located throughout the all-electric coach allow you to easily control coach functions, including exterior and interior lights, hydraulic jacks, MCD power shades, slideout rooms, and more, while the Carefree Paramount awnings extend from the top of the RV to three positions: slideout, slideout and window, and full patio extension.

A full complement of Winnebago Towables are also on display, including the Micro Minnie, colorful Minnie and Ultralite trailers, as well as the Voyage, Latitude, and Destination fifth wheels.
