20 • RV PRO • May 2020 rv-pro.com Standout Towable Lineup Perhaps the most evident area where progress has been made was on display in the towables section during the dealer event. Winnebago's towables long have taken a backseat to the company's more recog- nized motorhomes, but at a time when the motorized segment of the RV market is shrinking, Winnebago has stepped up its game in the towable segment. This was especially noticeable in the smaller, more affordable end of the tow- able lineup. Where Grand Design's products set the standards in fifth wheels, Winnebago's newest versions of the Minnie and Micro Minnie, as well as the newly introduced Hike, made a big splash and had dealers lining up to get a look at the interiors. Vice President of Winnebago Towables Scott Degnan said he credits much of the success of the new lineup to new produc- tion facilities that Winnebago has added. "That was really a key component to getting Winnebago Towables product right in terms of quality," he said. "The old plant was never designed to push through the volume and quality we were trying to get through there." A line of dealers waits to check out one of the Winnebago Hike travel trailers. The Hike is designed to be loaded with outdoor equipment such as kayaks and bicycles. The trailer's H172BH model features bunk beds and a lighter color scheme that make the small trailer feel larger and brighter.
