Winnebago becomes first brand to produce 500,000 motorhomes

World-famous RV brand Winnebago recently celebrated producing its 500,000th motorhome, becoming the first brand in the industry to hit such a milestone.

Winnebago, which is the flagship brand in the portfolio of Winnebago Industries Inc, marked the special occasion with a series of events across its facilities, with a special event held at its North Iowa campus in Lake Mills, where the vehicle ceremoniously rolled off the production line. Motorhome number 500,000 was a Winnebago Revel – a model launched four years ago that the company says embodies its continuous innovation and ability to meet the evolving needs of the RV customer.

Huw Bower, president of Winnebago Outdoors, said: “Winnebago is a pioneer in the RV category, producing its first vehicles more than 60 years ago. Yet, the 500,000th motorhome represents much more than longevity in the market. To our 2,700 employees, it represents millions of incredible experiences among friends and families that Winnebago has made possible through the decades. Our team members are committed to excellence every day, motivated and energized by the idea of bringing joy to so many people. This milestone would not be possible without their tireless dedication.”

The event was particularly meaningful to Winnebago team members, especially the top ten-most senior employees who have been with the company for multiple decades and can remember some of the earliest vehicles.
