Winnebago Industries Inc.’s 2008 Itasca Sunova has been recognized as a “Consumers Digest Best Buy.”
Featured in the June 2008 issue of Consumers Digest magazine, a “Best Buy” is defined as a product that offers the most value for a given amount of money.
“We are extremely pleased to receive a Consumers Digest Best Buy designation for the Itasca Sunova for a second time,” said Roger Martin, vice president of sales and marketing for the Forest City, Iowa-based builder. “Respected for the quality construction found on all Winnebago Industries motorhomes, the Sunova also provides outstanding value, comfort and maximum storage in an attractively priced Class A gas motorhome.”
Consumers Digest lists the 2008 Itasca Sunova 29R floorplan as a premium selection in its ratings of motorhomes, meaning the product is full-featured and priced accordingly.
