“Other ‘game changers’ are the new Winnebago Forza and Itasca Solei,” said Scott Degnan, Winnebago Industries Vice President of Sales and Product Management.

The Forza and Solei are initially offered in two floor plans, and loaded with standard features, including a Cummins 340HP engine, Winnebago Industries’ exclusive SuperStructure steel construction, large pass-through storage, upgraded appliances, and much more.

“It’s ‘Game On’ for Winnebago Industries,” said Degnan.

“We have changed up the roster with new and exciting products and our dealer partners were extremely enthusiastic in their response to the new lineup. We were No. 1 in retail sales in the U.S. for 2012 and with the new products we have unveiled this week, we see that momentum continuing.”

“The Travato is a real game changer,” said Will Jarnot, general manager, Pleasureland RV, headquartered in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
