winnebago-quality-circle-award-255x144The Winnebago Industries Rally Grounds Activity Complex, located adjacent to the company’s Forest City headquarters and main manufacturing complex, is undergoing a series of planned renovations, according to a news release.

Improvements include surface leveling of Section A of the original Rally Grounds along with upgraded 50 amp electrical service in that section.

The entire facility is also receiving a Wi-Fi system enhancement to improve visitors’ access to internet service on site.

“When the Rally Grounds were originally developed in the 1970s, RVs were typically smaller than they are today and did not incorporate many of today’s modern features such as slide outs. These upgrades provide more user-friendly accommodations for today’s RVer,” said Winnebago Industries Director of Marketing Chad Reece.

“Ongoing improvements make our Rally Grounds Activity Complex, which is already a uniquely premier location for RV-related and other gatherings, even better. We look forward to showcasing these improvements when we host our annual WIT Club Grand National Rally July 21 through the 26 and other events moving forward.”

Winnebago Industries’ Rally Grounds Activity Complex has electrical hookups for over 1,300 RVs and dry camping space to accommodate several hundred more.

Two covered pavilion areas provide additional outdoor meeting space. A professionally managed Food Service is also located on the grounds to cater to guests’ food service needs.

Worth Pondering…

The RV lifestyle is like nothing else.

It’s leaving home, exploring America, and yet bringing your home along with you!

Stopping at a wayside picnic area, preparing lunch in your kitchen.

It’s sleeping in your own bed every night, yet waking up to a new vista each morning!

The sounds of a crackling campfire; of a mountain stream, of frogs, and crickets.

It’s families drawn closer; it’s retirees being rewarded for many years of labor.
