>FOREST CITY – Winnebago Industries has achieved yet another milestone – the production of its 400,000th motor home.
The Forest City-based manufacturer will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2008. Winnebago opened in 1958 as Modernistic Industries and built travel trailers for several years before entering the motor-home market.
The company officially changed its name to Winnebago in 1961, and five years later, it built its first self-contained motor home.
