Winnebago Rolls First Travato Off Lake Mills Line
Winnebago Industries Inc. has completed production of the first Travato Class B motorhome at its new facility in Lake Mills, Iowa, according to a press release.
As announced in November 2013, Winnebago expanded manufacturing for its Winnebago Touring Coach division after entering into a five-year lease of a 100,000-square-foot plant in Lake Mills formerly owned and operated by Cummins Filtration.
“Our employees have done a great job; they’ve worked hard to install new equipment, set up the production floor and train new staff,” said Chairman, CEO and President Randy Potts. “It’s a real celebration to see the first Travato motorhome roll off the line and the timing for ramping up this production couldn’t be better as we prepare for the busy spring and summer selling season.”
The Travato is the newest Class B motorhome to join the Winnebago Touring Coach lineup. At 20 feet long, the Travato is agile, while still offering a full-featured RV experience. The Travato features a floorplan with a rear double bed that is designed to flip up, allowing for large items like bicycles to be stored inside, while making them easily accessible through the large double doors at the rear of the coach.
Built on the Ram ProMaster chassis, the Travato also offers swivel cab seats, LED ceiling lights, standard touch-screen navigation and a split dinette.
