Winnebago Takes Top Spot in Class B Van Sales for the Year

FOREST CITY, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/15/15 -- Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), a leading United States (U.S.) recreation vehicle manufacturer, has surged to become the top manufacturer in Class B van retail sales for the year, according to information released by Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI).

Through April 2015 year-to-date results released by SSI, Winnebago’s Class B touring coaches are the leaders in the category with a 30.6 percent market share.

“We are extremely pleased to be the leading manufacturer in this category of recreation vehicles,” said Winnebago Product Manager Russ Garfin. “Winnebago’s line of Class B Touring Coaches offer versatility and style in an agile ride that is perfect for anyone from outdoor enthusiasts to weekend travelers.”

Winnebago’s line of Class B touring coaches features the Travato™ and Era®.

The Travato is a recreation support vehicle, ideal for biking, kayaking and all outdoor activities. Built on the fuel-efficient and highly maneuverable Ram ProMaster® chassis, the Travato makes the most of every square inch of space with convenient storage, and features Bluetooth™ connected entertainment systems that are integrated into precision-manufactured cabinetry and contemporary finishes. Available features include bike and kayak racks, an exterior sound system and a screen door.

The Travato offers two floor plans, the 59G and 59K. More information about the Travato can be found at http://winnebagoind.com/products/cla...avato/overview

The Era is the most affordable Mercedes-Benz® Sprinter van camper among the leading brands in North America. Designed for ease and practicality, the Era embodies what the avid traveler desires: impressive fuel economy, cutting edge technology like the Rand McNally RV GPS system, fully equipped galley with Corian® countertops and innovative sleeping -- all in a compact, 24-foot package.

The Era offers three floorplans, the 70A, 70C and 70X. Additional information about the Era and its floorplans can be found at http://winnebagoind.com/products/cla...5/era/overview

Makes sense. No better value than a Travato for what they are selling for.

They were smart to get their Promaster out first. I wonder how the Zion (which I prefer as far as floor plan) will affect this. I didn't see a link to actual numbers though...
