With an emphasis on minimotorhomes that reflects a tight 2006 motorized market, Winnebago Industries Inc. unveiled its full line of 2007 Winnebago and Itasca motorhomes during the company’s Dealer Days June 25-27 at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
For 2007, Winnebago Industries offers a lineup with 86 floorplans – 30% of which are new or redesigned. “Winnebago Industries was excited to introduce our 2007 lineup to our dealers,” Bruce Hertzke, chairman and CEO, told the assembled dealers.
In a press release, Winnebago’s management said that while it is introducing an array of gas and diesel Class A upgrades for ’07, its Class C lineup is the most comprehensive in the Forest City, Iowa-based company’s 48-year history.
Winnebago’s 2007 Class C lineup – in ascending order – includes the new, value priced Winnebago Access and Itasca Impulse with six models ranging in length from 22 to 31 feet. The Access and Impulse are joined by the Winnebago Outlook and Itasca Spirit, featuring a new exterior design in 2007 in addition to contemporary, curved cabinetry inside. Aspect and Cambria C-bodies offer a new full-body paint option on each of three floorplans that range in length from 23 to 29 feet.
The fuel efficient Winnebago View and Itasca Navion, back for 2007 with a new 23B floorplan housing a rear bunk layout, is built on the imported Dodge cutaway
Sprinter chassis built by Mercedes-Benz and powered by a 2.7L 5-cylinder Mercedes Benz turbo-diesel engine that gets 17 to 19 miles per gallon.
Winnebago Class A gas offerings for 2007 include the redesigned Winnebago Voyage and Itasca Sunrise with a new contemporary design and 7’2’’ interior ceilings.
The value priced Winnebago Sightseer and Itasca Sunova entry level Class A gas models for 2007 feature a new floorplan with double bunk beds with optional flip-down LCD TV and DVD player in addition to a rear king-size bed.
Among Winnebago’s Class A diesel offerings is a new floorplan in the Winnebago Tour and Itasca Ellipse that offers about 375 square feet of living space stemming from two extra large, flat-floor slides (15 feet, 11 inches on the driver’s side and 21 feet, 6 inches on the passenger’s side) plus a forward galley and optional mid-coach fireplace.
