Winnebago Industries’ Activity Complex Receives Major Facelist



FOREST CITY, IOWA, April 26, 2013 - Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), a leading United States (U.S.) recreation vehicle manufacturer, is renovating the Company’s Rally Grounds Activity Complex. 

The Winnebago Industries(R) Rally Grounds Activity Complex, located adjacent to the Company’s Forest City, Iowa headquarters and main manufacturing complex is undergoing a series of planned renovations. Improvements include surface leveling of Section A of the original Rally Grounds along with upgraded 50 amp electrical service in that section.  When the Rally Grounds were originally developed in the 1970’s, RV’s were typically smaller than they are today and did not incorporate many of today’s modern features such as slide outs. These upgrades provide more user-friendly accommodations for today’s RVer. The entire facility is also receiving a WI-FI system enhancement to improve visitors’ access to internet service on site. 

Winnebago Industries Director of Marketing Chad Reece added, “Ongoing improvements make our Rally Grounds Activity Complex, which is already a uniquely premier location for RV related and other gatherings, even better. We look forward to showcasing these improvements when we host our annual WIT Club Grand National Rally July 21st thru the 26th and other events moving forward.”

Winnebago Industries’ Rally Grounds Activity Complex has electrical hookups for over 1,300 RV’s and dry camping space to accommodate several hundred more. On site amenities include sanitary dump stations, rest room/shower house facilities, a 3,000 seat outdoor amphitheater, an air conditioned 60' x 200' carpeted meeting facility with a hard surface dance floor area.  A second air conditioned meeting facility that can accommodate up to 125 people and includes a bar/lounge area. Two covered pavilion areas provide additional outdoor meeting space .  A professionally managed Food Service is conveniently located on the grounds to cater guests' food service needs.  The Rally Grounds Activity Complex is available for a multitude of events throughout the year.  For more information about the use of the facility, please contact Lisa Cronkwright, Events Coordinator, at 641-585-6464 or at lcronkwright@winnebaoind.com

Winnebago Industries Introduces the Metro Link™



FOREST CITY, IOWA, April 24, 2013 – Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), one of the leading United States (U.S.) recreation vehicle manufacturers, is entering the mid-size vehicle transportation market with the introduction of the Metro Link™ bus.

The company spent several years in the design and development phase conducting extensive research involving public transportation operators and industry experts.  The result is a revolutionary approach to transit bus applications with several features specifically tailored to provide a much quieter, better functioning vehicle with reduced maintenance and improved durability, many of which Winnebago Industries intends to patent. That durability is backed with an industry leading 7 year/150,000 mile structural warranty.

The Metro Link features a one-piece fiberglass roof, a fully welded, tubular steel framework, high gloss fiberglass sidewalls and exclusive frameless windows that offer exceptional performance and reduced long term maintenance. On the inside, the Metro Link offers fiberglass interior walls and a 78-inch center aisle height.  Available in a number of passenger configurations, the Metro Link is highly customizable to meet the wide ranging needs of the transit and paratransit industry.

“Winnebago Industries is excited to enter the bus arena with the introduction of the Metro Link,” said Winnebago Industries Chairman of the Board, CEO and President Randy Potts.  “This project has been in development for quite some time and we are very excited with the outcome. The Metro Link completed extensive testing at the highly regarded Altoona Bus Research and Testing Center in Altoona, PA. and surpassed expectations,” said Potts.  “With its improved functionality, low maintenance design and extremely quiet ride, it promises to be a game changer in the transit bus market.”

Distribution of the new Metro Link will be conducted by Metro Worldwide, a division of the Pritchard Family Companies. In business for over a century, Pritchard has had a working relationship with Winnebago Industries for over 25 years. Pritchard has a national presence in the distribution of commercial trucks where they have distinguished themselves as a leader in both volume and customer service.

“We are excited to partner with a quality company such as Winnebago Industries. They have designed a revolutionary product for the shuttle bus and transit industry, and we are honored to sell and service their products across the United States and around the world,” said Pritchard Family Companies CEO Joe Pritchard.

Hot New Class A Motorhomes with Bunk Beds Usher in Summer!!



April 16, 2013 (Elkhart, In.)It’s almost Memorial Day and the kids will be getting out of school before we know it.  Now is the perfect time to take a look at the new Windsport 34J Bunk House Class A motorhomes from Thor Motor Coach, North America’s #1 Motorhome Brand. This ingenious bunk bed floorplan provides a superior overall living environment compared to other bunk bed models in the market.
With a complete overhaul in 2013, the Windsport is even better with the addition of the 34J Bunk House.  The innovate floorplan design removes the bunks from the camp side of the coach, allowing parents and grandparents time outside, under the patio awning, without disturbing the kids.  This ingenious move opens up space for an optional exterior kitchen in the basement.  Packed full of amenities, including a generous countertop area with integrated sink, portable grill, and refrigerator this motorhome, the outside kitchen is a tailgating dream.
Flexibility to convert from a sleeping area, to a sitting area, or a full length wardrobe adjusts the 34J to the owners need today and as the family grows.  A pair of LCD TV’s allow for personalized viewing in each bunk.  Once converted to a sofa, the top bunk TV can be removed and located across the hall for family viewing.

Living room arrangements are very family-oriented, as the seating in the coach is centrally located. Multiple players can all join in the action of family game night or share the bucket of popcorn during movie night.  An optional overhead bunk provides full size sleeping accommodations above the cockpit seats, bringing the overall all sleeping capacity to eight.
The exterior is handsomely finished with Thor Motor Coach’s HD-MAX™ exterior standard along with optional full body paint packages for an ultra-high-end look.  Side-hinged slam latches on most exterior baggage doors make accessing the basement storage a snap, while the no-maintenance rotocast storage trunks are simple to wipe clean.  A 32” LCD exterior TV located under the patio awning is now optional.
Standard features on all 34J Class A Bunk Houses include an Onan RV 5,500 watt generator, 50-amp service, dual 13,500-Btu air conditioners and a gas/electric water heater.
