Winnebago Towables Unit Launches RAVEN
Forest City, Iowa-based Winnebago Industries Inc. announced today (June 29) the launch of a new 2012 RAVEN towable line as part of the company’s SunnyBrook brand.
According to a press release, the RAVEN is in full production and will initially be available in five fifth-wheel and three travel trailer floorplans.
“Dealer response to RAVEN has been outstanding,” said Fred Hershberger, national sales manager for Winnebago Industries Towables. “Every dealer has been impressed with the look that has been achieved and the price point that we’ve hit. Within the mid-profile fifth-wheel market, there will not be a more competitive brand.
He added, “Ron DeHaven, who is product manager for RAVEN, knows fifth-wheels and nailed this one.”
The newly designed RAVEN includes a high-end, gel coat fiberglass exterior, increased turning radius front cap, slam-latch baggage doors, storm door, glazed cherry cabinetry, designer furniture, 30-inch deep bedroom slideouts for increased floor space and flat “no step” floors in the bedroom. In addition, the RAVEN has been designed with a maximum height of 11-feet, 11-inches with standard wheels.
“I’ve managed numerous products over my 20-plus years in the RV industry and I can state that without a doubt this is the most exciting product that I’ve been associated with,” said DeHaven. “We are excited to sign new dealers and show retail customers a product that is focused on them.”
