A Special Report from our friends at Winnebago Industries
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Sept. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), a leading outdoor lifestyle product manufacturer, is showcasing its innovative lineup of new models from signature RV brands, Winnebago, Grand Design RV and Newmar at ‘America’s Largest RV Show’ in Hershey, Pa., Sept. 13-17, 2023. Winnebago Industries will display more than 165 new models across its three leading brands, demonstrating the latest features and floorplans that connect consumers more closely to the outdoors and enhance the many benefits of RV ownership.
“Superior quality, innovation and service unify our Winnebago, Grand Design, and Newmar brands,” said Winnebago Industries President and CEO, Michael Happe. “And while each brand has its own unique legacy, all are united in the pursuit to help consumers explore the outdoors and enable extraordinary experiences as they travel, live, work and play. Our team is excited to showcase a range of innovative products at Hershey as we encourage all consumers, including new buyers and experienced owners, to enjoy outdoor adventures with our RVs.”
The Winnebago brand is one of the most trusted recreational vehicle and outdoor brands, delivering innovation and outstanding quality for decades across a full range of RVs from travel trailers to camper vans to Class A motorhomes. At the Hershey show, with 96 units on display, the brand will showcase several recent innovations including debuting its first conventional-class travel trailer, the Access, which features thoughtfully-designed floor plans, clean and contemporary European styling and ample storage, and its newly enhanced Solis Pocket camper van floorplan.
The Access travel trailer has a starting price point that makes the towable best-in-class for quality and value. It features a collection of premium offerings unlike any other travel trailer in its class, such as a fully enclosed and heated underbelly and a 2-inch accessory receiver hitch for greater hauling versatility. The Access sleeps up to eight people and is durable, easy to tow, and features a collection of eight premium amenities as standard, including WiFi connection, 12v water tank pad heaters, and a factory-supplied 200W solar panel.

The enhanced Solis Pocket 36B floorplan improves the camper van’s living environment, and features a new versatile, multi-functional dinette and rear wet bath, which is rare for a compact van. The new floorplan comes with an option to add an energy performance solution developed in partnership with EcoFlow®. The system includes an exclusive 5-in-1 power management controller that consolidates five essential power components into one compact hub that optimizes energy performance. The Solis Pocket 36B is the first and only RV on the market to feature the exclusive 5-in-1 power management controller, and Winnebago is the only RV manufacturer that can offer it.
