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

The Company and its subsidiary build quality motor homes, travel trailers, fifth wheel products, and transit buses under the Winnebago, Itasca, Winnebago Touring Coach, SunnyBrook and Metro brand names. Winnebago Industries has received the Quality Circle Award from the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association every year since the award’s inception in 1996.

 

Boomers first RVMany boomers may have doubts about their nest eggs, but at least one symbol of retirement prosperity is rolling along quite nicely, thank you very much. The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association says that it expects sales of RVs and motorhomes to reach 307,000 units in 2013, which would make this the industry’s best year since 2007. For the year to date, shipments to dealers are up 13% over last year’s levels, the association reported in its most recent sales update.

The mega-camper business all but collapsed during the last recession, thanks to the combination of economic upheaval and high gas prices, with sales falling 58% from 2006 to 2009. Shriveling credit markets played a role, too, with many lenders being unwilling to finance RV and motorhome purchases even as they freed up money for car loans in general.

A spokesman for Thor, the company that makes Airstream and other popular RV brands,reports buyers can now “get financing pretty easily up to about $150,000.” Interest rates on RVs start at around 4.4%, compared with under 3% for the typical auto loan.

RV salespeople say that retiring “snowbird” boomers are their biggest customer group; the trade group doesn’t publish specific age breakdowns, but its literature suggests that ownership rates are highest among those between age 55 and 75. Speaking of snowbird stereotypes, the archetypal motorhome, in which the driver’s cabin and the living quarters are all on the same chassis accounts for only about 12% of RV sales. “Travel trailers” that get towed behind another vehicle, like the Airstream, make up the majority of the market. Some of those are quite modest, but price tags on the most luxurious models can top $90,000.

Sun Valley travel trailers from EverGreen RV, L.L.C. are now available in a popular new bunkhouse model (the S300BHSL) that is perfect for extended families or large groups of campers.

The Sun Valley S300BHSL travel trailer features a walk around queen bed in the front of the coach with a side aisle bath separating the sleeping quarters from the main living and dining area of the coach. A spacious kitchen slide out sits opposite a deep-slide dinette and couch, with plenty of storage overhead.

The two slide outs provide ample room for entertaining family and friends around a kitchen island with a full-sized residential sink. The main attraction of the S300BHSL, however, is the rear bunkhouse. Opening a door next to a large kitchen pantry reveals the perfect hideaway for children or adult guests, with plenty of sleeping and lounging space provided by double bunks and a third flip-down bunk. Underneath the flip up bunk you’ll find cube gaming chairs that are designed for lounging or viewing a flat screen TV on the rear wall, complete with drink holders.

Sun Valley also offers a dozen other versatile floor plans to fit any lifestyle and price point with standard features such as a fiberglass front cap with LED lights, screwed and glued cabinetry, and a gear driven four-point slide system. All Sun Valley travel trailers are built with EverGreen’s industry-leading vacuum lamination process in the sidewalls, roof and floors with a tough, fiberglass reinforced exterior and a durable walk-on, reflective white TPO roof wrapped around a sturdy welded aluminum cage. Every unit is put through a rigorous 101-point inspection including a rain booth test before leaving the factory floor.
