Middlebury, Ind.-based Winnebago Industries Towables Inc. has reopened its second production facility, with the new 2014 Raven fifth-wheel as the first product to come off the line.

“We are very excited to reopen the SunnyBrook plant,” said Winnebago Industries Towables President Johnny Hernandez in a press release.  “Due to increased demand for our Winnebago brand products, which doubled in volume within the last year, as well as the redesign of the entire SunnyBrook product line, we needed to reopen the second production facility. The SunnyBrook building has a footprint of over 200,000 square feet, providing a great deal of capacity to continue to increase our production long-term.”

Along with the brand new Raven mid-profile fifth-wheel, Sunset Creek stick-and-tin travel trailers and Remington laminated fiberglass travel trailers have also been redesigned for 2014.

“As a result of increased dealer orders for our exciting new products, we plan to continue to ramp up production and hire an additional 60 employees within the next year,” Hernandez said.
