Winnebago Conducts Dealer Training Sessions
Winnebago Industries Inc.’s product training department recently hosted 112 dealer personnel at its headquarters in Forest City, Iowa, for “exclusive dealer training,” according to a press release. Two consecutive sessions were held August 13-14 and August 15-16. Each two-day session included an ultimate factory tour of the Forest City campus, including support areas such as metal stamping and engineering, with the ability to see first-hand what makes Winnebago products stand out from the competition. Attendees were also provided specific product training which highlighted new features and new 2013 floorplans. “The training was very good,” said Tom Heppe of Lazydays RV, Seffner, Fla. “The materials they provide are the best – bar none. It is a wealth of information that we get to take back to our dealerships and refer to over and over again.” Ace Meason of McClain’s RV Superstore in Lake Dallas, Texas, added, “To me, the most beneficial part of the training was the factory tour. It’s great to see first-hand how all of the pieces come together, because then we can share that information with customers.” The company will also conduct product training for Winnebago, Itasca and Era motorhome dealers on September 18-19 at the Winnebago Industries Open House Event in Elkhart Ind. Dealers may contact their district sales manager for more details.
