An RV industry first: Winnebago produces its 500,000th motorhome

Winnebago Industries, Inc. has produced its 500,000th motorhome, becoming the first industry brand to reach this significant milestone. The company marked the occasion with events across all its facilities, with a special event held at its North Iowa campus in Lake Mills, where the vehicle ceremoniously rolled off the production line.

“Winnebago is a pioneer in the RV category, producing its first vehicles more than 60 years ago,” said Huw Bower, President of Winnebago Outdoors. “Yet, the 500,000th motorhome represents much more than longevity in the market. To our 2,700 employees, it represents millions of incredible experiences among friends and families that Winnebago has made possible through the decades. Our team members are committed to excellence every day, motivated and energized by the idea of bringing joy to so many people. This milestone would not be possible without their tireless dedication.”

All Winnebago’s North Iowa campus employees gathered for Bower’s remarks and celebrated the 500,000th motorhome (its Revel model, a Class B/van conversion based on the Mercedes Sprinter) roll off the production line. Winnebago paused business across all facilities to allow every employee to join in the celebration.

The event was particularly meaningful to Winnebago team members, especially the top ten-most senior employees who have been with the company for multiple decades and can remember some of the earliest vehicles.

The Revel is a rugged RV to take customers off-road and off-grid for extended outdoor escapes. It features four-wheel-drive, elevated ground clearance, and a long-lasting lithium battery to power RV systems.

Winnebago has significant plans for exciting new products to continue to delight customers as they travel, explore and play. Check out Winnebago Insider to learn more about the latest models and what’s in store for the years ahead.
