Forest City, Iowa-based Winnebago Industries Inc. introduced the new 2015 models to the company’s dealer partners during its annual Dealer Days event at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
Introductions included the all-new Brave and Tribute, Grand Tour and Ellipse Ultra motorhome lines.
Winnebago blended vintage with a modern twist in the rollout of the 2015 Brave and Tribute.
In the ’60s and ’70s, there was no mistaking a Winnebago motorhome with the distinctive “eyebrow” design and flying W logo, and the new Brave and Tribute breathe new life into the legendary design. Beyond the retro styling, the Brave and Tribute are loaded with today’s best features and offered in two versatile floor plans with exciting color schemes like Good Vibration with Cherry Cola Cherry cabinets, as well as a price to fit the budget of a young, traveling family.
“This is the most exciting product launch I’ve ever been involved with,” said Winnebago Chairman, CEO and President Randy Potts, in a news release.
“The new Brave and Tribute are going to take the market by storm. The retro, yet modern image they project is fun, while they offer great new features that are sure to capture the eye of new buyers.”
Also making its debut at the dealer event is the new Grand Tour Class A diesel pusher, and its counterpart, the Ellipse Ultra. The tag-axle Grand Tour and Ellipse Ultra each feature unique, high-end features such as a large skylight with powered shade in the front lounge/cab area, polished porcelain tile flooring, keyless entry, and four full-body paint packages. Multiplex switch panels located throughout the all-electric coach allow you to control exterior and interior lights, hydraulic jacks, MCD power shades, and slideout rooms.
Several 2015 products received exterior redesigns, including the Class A gas-powered Vista and Sunstar lines, Class A diesel Via and Reyo lines, and the Class C View and Navion on the 24V and 24G floor plans. New standard features are included across all product lines, and exciting new floor plans are also included in the Journey, Meridian, Vista, Sunstar, Tour, and Ellipse motorhome lines.
Winnebago Towables debuted the new Micro Minnie trailer and two new fifth wheel trailers, the Voyage and Latitude. The new Micro Minnie trailer is under 3,000 pounds and features a new “cool gray” exterior color. The Voyage and Latitude lines provide exciting new mid-profile and full-profile fifth-wheel choices and the Ultralight line has been expanded to six available floor plans. The Ultralight and the Voyage both offer graphic options and corresponding LED lights that are in color choices of red, green, or blue.
“They hit the nail on the head with the new Brave retro look,” said Carl Jensen from Sierra RV, Sunset, Utah.
“The updated interior styling was wonderful and the colors are bright and fresh. The new Brave and Tribute will appeal to all ages.”
