Winegard Co.’s Rayzar Automatic antenna was named the RV Aftermarket Association’s (RVAA) Product of the Year at its annual Executive Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. This is the second year in a row that RVAA awarded Winegard its top honor, earning the distinction last year with the Carryout G2.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized among our industry peers for our commitment to providing our customers with the best in antenna technology,” said Keith Larson, consumer products sales manager for Burlington, Iowa-based Winegard. “Our exceptional research and engineering teams have the advantage of a world-class testing and manufacturing facility to design, develop, and produce cost-effective, top-of-the-line products, like the Rayzar Automatic.”
RVAA judges all products based on the following criteria: innovation, functionality, value, quality, technology, and the overall impression. The panel consists of select industry dealers and distributors.
The Rayzar Automatic, which retails for $399, is a fully automatic HD TV antenna that quickly scans for all available local broadcast channels. This dual band antenna boasts state-of-the-art Surface Mount Technology ensuring effortless usability and an optimal viewing experience every time. The Rayzar Automatic external hardware searches for live, local signals, while an LED wall plate inside the RV illuminates all locations where TV signals are available. The antenna positions itself automatically to ensure maximum channel acquisition.
A sleek, low-profile dome houses the technology, is attractive and protects the hardware from shock, vibration, high humidity and extreme temperatures.
