As of last week, about 2,500 people had registered for the annual Winnebago Itasca Travelers (WIT) Grand National Rally (GNR), set to run July 21-26 at the builder’s Rally Grounds in Forest City, Iowa. As reported by the Forest City Summit, the grounds opened to early arriving GNR attendees on Monday.
Sheila Davis, public relations/investor relations manager, said that when all the motorhomes and towables are on the grounds, the attendance will likely be slightly higher than last year’s attendance.
Volunteers have already started preparing for the GNR, with about 75 already on the grounds this week, Davis said.
The annual GNR is a gathering of WIT club members who own Winnebago, Itasca motorhomes or towables or SunnyBrook towable RVs. The rally features tours of the Winnebago plants, education seminars in which motorhome or towable owners learn about vehicle features, driving tips and other information.
Rally attendees also get a look at the new 2014 models including new models such as the Winnebago Forza and Itasca Solei Class A Diesel motorhomes. Attendees can also drive or ride in some of those new coaches.
A variety of vendors also share products and items related to motorhome travel and use.
