Winnebago Forza MotorhomeWinnebago recently introduced the Forza motorhome at The Rally, the Camping World/Good Sam event held in Syracuse at the New York State Fairgrounds being held this weekend.

Thousands of RVers and enthusiasts were on-hand for the event where the Winnebago Forza made its debut. The all-new, pleasantly priced Forza is built on the Freightliner® XCS straight-rail chassis which provides a solid foundation with a Cummins 340-hp diesel engine and Allison® six-speed transmission delivering the power. Diesel pushers are known for storage and the Forza ups the ante with its Smart Storage™ design that pushes capacity even further. Inside, are fine amenities such as polished Corian® galley countertops, coffee glazed cabinetry, upscale entertainment features, and LED lighting.

Arnold and Jean Bye from Waunakee, Wisconsin loved the new Forza. “We are looking for a small diesel with a queen bed in the traditional position so we could use it without putting the slides out. We love the mid entry. We have a 40’ now and we want to downsize – this is perfect for us. We can get 8 people around the sectional table. The side swing doors allow easy access to great storage for a small unit. I also love the passenger seat with the table for all my maps and the laptop.

The all-new Class A Diesel pusher series offers two floorplans – the 34T and 38R

  • Powered driver and passenger seats in leatherette
  • Radio/rearview color monitor system with 6-inch touch screen

NorthJersey.com travel columnist Jill Schensel writes about her recient RV trip:

I’m getting one.

This was my fourth trip in a rented recreational vehicle, and at the end of every one I come to the same decision (only more decidedly each time): RVs were made for me (or, OK, probably that should be vice versa).

For anyone who loves the adventure of travel, the process of going, the freedom to follow your own schedule, to go where you want and leave when you’re finished and head off to the next oh-I-always-wanted-to-go-there place, what could be better than a house that moves with you? No packing, no stopping the mail, no begging someone to sit your dog (“she really has stopped chewing furniture …”).

Of course, it’s not quite that simple, living in what is basically a box — even a big box — on wheels. One of the missions of my recent 10 days on the road – spending three nights with some 10,000 RVers at The Rally (an annual gathering that was in Louisville, Ky., this year), visiting the RV Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart, Ind., and stopping overnight at campsites and other RVer hangouts – was to get advice and insight into RV tripping and the whole mobile lifestyle.

VENTURA, CALIF. – Affinity Group and the Good Sam Club, the world’s largest recreational vehicle (RV) owners’ organization, announce that Executive Director Sue Bray is leaving to form her own consulting business, Sue Bray Consulting, (www.suebray.com). Bray’s new business will focus on and utilize her expertise in marketing, managing and operating membership clubs and events.

Affinity CEO and President Mike Schneider made the announcement stating “Sue has dedicated her 33-year career to enhancing our members’ experience through excellent membership benefits development and service. Much of Good Sam’s phenomenal growth over the years can be attributed to Sue. We wish her the very best of luck in her future endeavors, and I’m proud to announce that the Good Sam Club will be one of her first clients.

Sue joined the Good Sam Club, a division of Affinity Group, Inc., in 1976 as chapter activities director. In 1979 she was named executive director of the Club, and became an Affinity vice president in 1980. During her tenure with the Good Sam Club, the organization grew from less than 200,000 members to nearly one million families today.

Sue spent most of her career with the Good Sam Club developing partnerships and benefits for members, including the popular trip routing service, an RV financing program, a member credit card, and was deeply involved in the design of the Club’s popular emergency road service. She marketed and managed Club events, including Affinity’s annual event, The Rally, which attracts upwards of 8,000 guests each year, and provided editorial direction for Highways, the Club’s monthly magazine.

Bray managed the Good Sam Club’s participation in several major charity initiatives, including the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, Dogs for the Deaf and Hole in the Wall Camps. She also managed its legislative and lobbying efforts, which she’ll continue to do on behalf of the Club and its members.

In 2009, Bray was inducted into the RV Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind.—one of the youngest members and only the ninth woman selected for the RV industry’s most prestigious honor.

Also, included among Bray’s initial clients is the Venice Beach House (www.venicebeachhouse.com), an upscale inn located beachside in Venice Beach, Calif. and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
