Forest City, Iowa-based Winnebago Industries Inc. introduced the Forza Class A diesel motorhome to retail consumers at The Rally, the Camping World/Good Sam event held in Syracuse at the New York State Fairgrounds held last weekend.
Thousands of RVers and enthusiasts were on-hand for the event to view the Forza, built on the Freightliner XCS straight-rail chassis with a Cummins 340-hp diesel engine and Allison six-speed transmission.
“Diesel pushers are known for storage and the Forza ups the ante with its Smart Storage design that pushes capacity even further,” said Shiela Davis, public relations manager, in a news release.
“Inside, are fine amenities such as polished Corian galley countertops, coffee glazed cabinetry, upscale entertainment features, and LED lighting.”
Arnold and Jean Bye from Waunakee, Wisconsin, said they loved the new Forza.
“We are looking for a small diesel with a queen bed in the traditional position so we could use it without putting the slides out,” they explained.
“We love the mid entry. We have a 40 foot now and we want to downsize—this is perfect for us. We can get 8 people around the sectional table. The side swing doors allow easy access to great storage for a small unit. I also love the passenger seat with the table for all my maps and the laptop.”
