Winnebago will be unveiling its first full-size, luxury fifth wheel – the Destination – at the 51st annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky.

“The new Destination truly lives up to the iconic Winnebago name,” says Winnebago Towables President Johnny Hernandez. “I am very proud of our team and the results of their efforts to push the envelope of traditional fifth-wheel design to achieve a product that all other fifth wheels will soon be measured by.”

Destination’s front cap integrates an aerodynamic design, including an air dam for increased wind deflection, as well as a multidimensional paint design and LED light strips. Exterior features include aluminum steps, 30 x 78 entry door with opening window, 12″ main chassis rails, drop storage, frameless tinted windows, sports car styled taillights and back up lights, hydraulic front jacks and a standard champagne-colored gel coat fiberglass wall.

The interior stretches 96 inches in length and features a radius ceiling. The main floor slideouts, powered by hydraulics, are 6’9″ tall with extra tall windows.

Galley features include hardwood cabinets, full size pantry with glass door, solid surface countertops, recessed range, residential French door 20-cubic-foot refrigerator in either black or stainless steel, and optional stainless steel residential sized dishwasher.

The entertainment center’s 50″ TV, sliding desk drawer, and optional fireplace with a hearth add to the ambiance of this fifth wheel. A quiet air system is designed to provide maximum cooling with minimal sound.

At the top of the hardwood stairs are two 74″ tall six panel doors. One door leads to the bathroom with a 60″ one-piece fiberglass shower, large vanity with solid surface countertop, built-in lavatory sink and ceramic toilet. Behind the other door is the master suite featuring a 6’9″ ceiling height extending the open feel to the sleeping quarters. The “Flex Bed” raises the head of the bed providing a comfortable position for watching TV or just sitting up in bed. The bedroom also features an eight-drawer dresser with deep, 16″ drawers. A special feature of the bedroom is the magic mirror/TV design that acts like a mirror when the 32″ TV is not turned on and. Finally, to top off the master suite is a full-size, cedar-lined, walk-in closet has four large radius shelves.
