The 2009 Winnebago Outlook Offers New Floorplan Improvements

The Winnebago homepage features details and images of the 2009 Winnebago Outlook. According to Winnebago the 2009 Outlook offers new features on each of its floorplans, with improvements to the popular 31C and 29B i model. In 2009 31C is modified to include a bed slide in the rear and a large wardrobe and chest of drawers.

These modifications complement the other highlights of the 31C floorplan that include an in-line galley, private bathroom with a curved wall for an attractive look, and a large, rear storage compartment. The Outlook also returns the double slide 29B that has a front lounge-area slide as well as a rear bedroom slideout and an efficient L-shaped galley.

The 29B and 31C offer an optional front entertainment center that features a new 32-inch LCD TV. If you prefer the sleeping space the front bunk affords, choose the optional 19-inch LCD TV that swivels for viewing throughout the coach. In the bedroom, there’s a new, optional 19-inch LCD TV that can be detached from its location in the bedroom and mounted on an exterior bracket for outdoor viewing.

Whichever TV you choose up front, the new, optional video selection system is a must have – you can watch DVDs in the lounge or in the bedroom as well. In the dash area, check out the new Sirius satellite radio “Plug and Play” system that’s optional in 2009. The “Plug and Play” system allows you to control the Sirius radio through your in-dash radio and then remove the receiver for use in your car.

Both floorplans feature the with one hand for quick conversion into a comfortable bed. Additional items found in the interior upgrade package include: rope lighting, decorative pictures, a Titanium Touch refrigerator insert, sink covers, throw pillows and more. While there is much to talk about on the inside, the exterior of the 2009 Outlook is just as striking with new graphic designs, and new for 2009 – optional full body paint. The Outlook also has larger coach batteries in 2009.

Progressive Reminds RVers That Car Insurance Does Not Cover Many RV Mishaps

The Progressive Insurance homepage offers advice on making sure your RV is properly insured.

According to Progressive, “Some people make the mistake of adding their RV onto their car insurance policy, only to find out too late that the car policy doesn’t cover a lot of things that can go wrong in an RV,” said Cathy Pelfrey, RV product manager, Progressive.

“An RV is much more than a car—it’s a house on wheels. So an RVer really needs a specialized policy that covers more than what standard car insurance covers.”

As the number one brand of RV insurance sold through independent insurance agents in the country, Pelfrey says Progressive has seen its share of oddball claims over the years, as well as everyday mishaps that may be excluded from standard auto coverage
