“We would like to thank our outstanding dealer partners for their continued support of our products,” said Scott Degnan, Winnebago’s vice president of sales and product management, in a company news release.

“We believe our dealer network is the best in the industry and greatly appreciate their efforts. This year marks the 20thconsecutive time our company has earned this distinction and we would like to thank everyone who has enabled us to reach this milestone.”

Winnebago was recognized as a Quality Circle Award winner based on overall dealer satisfaction for the company’s motorized brands as measured in the Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) survey conducted by RVDA.

To receive the award, manufacturers must receive at least 15 dealer responses and score 4 or above on a five-point scale in overall dealer satisfaction.

“We appreciate the way Winnebago assists our dealership and customers,” said Kirk Spykerman, general manager of Conejo RV in Thousand Oaks, California.

“Earning the RVDA Quality Circle Award 20 straight years is a major accomplishment that speaks volumes about Winnebago’s high quality products and overall dealer satisfaction.”

RVDA created the DSI as a tool to help improve communication and the overall relationships with their manufacturers. When rating brands and manufacturers, RVDA asks dealers to express their level of satisfaction on the core issues of reliability and quality, parts, warranty, and sales.

“We congratulate Winnebago on receiving the RVDA Quality Circle Award for the 20th consecutive year,” said Jim Lenzo of Colonial RV in Lakewood, New Jersey.

“We feel honored to be associated with Winnebago and their success in achieving this accomplishment. The RVDA Quality Circle Award is a testament to the company’s commitment of producing high quality and innovative motorhomes.”

“Our employees are dedicated to building the best motorhomes in the industry and they deserve credit for attaining this honor 20 consecutive years,” Degnan said.

“Moving forward, we will continue to deliver innovative and reliable products, for both our dealer partners and retail customers.”
