rv-pro.com August 2018 • RV PRO • 53 in existence for years and sells way beyond the RV market. "We have a big breadth of products," Wibben says. "We have a lot to offer, and our brand is bigger because we're in other markets such as trucking, marine and sat- ellite dishes. People know about us from other walks of life." Asked about the company's biggest challenge, Whipple says it's that con- tinued rapid shift in technology. "For decades people took their TV signal from an antenna," he says. "Then, we went to satellites. But, you look at a cellphone, and 10 years ago you couldn't watch a video over a wireless network. Now, we're streaming millions of hours over wireless networks. We have to keep aligning our products to the newest iterations and our product development has to accelerate." Fortunately, Whipple sees it as a good challenge, especially given Winegard's track record for continuous innovation. As for where the company will be five years from now, Whipple says it will be continuing to offer quality and reli- ability – and it will likely be focused on connectivity. "We'll be delivering high-performance connectivity to people around the globe," he says. "We feel very, very strongly about that. We might be connecting them to drones, or other devices, but we will be enabling those devices to work in areas both where they work today and where it was previously impossible because there was no connectivity."
