Winnebago Industries Inc. Earns the RVDA Quality Circle Award

Congratulations Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV!

In October, Winnebago Industries, Inc. announced that all three of its RV premium brands in both the towable and motorized segments achieved the prestigious Quality Circle Award awarded by the National RV Dealers Association (RVDA.)

Winnebago Receives RVDA Quality Circle Award

RVDA awarded 21 RV manufacturers/brands with Quality Circle Awards for achieving the highest scores in the association’s 27th Annual Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) survey. This means Winnebago received at least 15 dealer responses and scored 4.25 or above on a 5-point scale in overall dealer satisfaction in the association’s survey conducted June through September.

Winnebago Industries Grand Design RV, Newmar, and Winnebago businesses are each being recognized as Quality Circle Award winners based on overall dealer satisfaction as measured in the Dealer Satisfaction Index survey. RVDA created the DSI as a tool to help improve communication and relationships with RV manufacturers.

When rating their brands/manufacturers, RVDA asks dealers to express, confidentially, their level of satisfaction on four core issues:

  • Reliability/quality
  • Parts
  • Warranty
  • Sales

RVDA reported that it received DSI responses from 520 dealership locations in the U.S. and Canada that included 2,672 brand ratings, an average of more than five per dealer. A summary of the DSI survey aggregate results will appear in the December issue of RV Executive Today.

Winnebago Industries will be recognized with the other top-rated manufacturers and receive their award during the RV Dealers International Convention Expo in  Las Vegas on Thursday, November 11.

RVDA is the national association representing RV retailers. The association’s members include RV dealers, RV rental operators, and RV AfterMarket sales and service locations. RVDA of Canada is a national, volunteer federation of provincial and regional RVDA associations which exists to protect and promote the interests and welfare of RV dealers across Canada in order to enable the industry to maximize its potential.

Details of this article were originally released from RVDA.

Compressor vs. Absorption Refrigerators in the Winnebago Travato

When you are packing for your next RV roadtrip…what is one of the first things you do? If you are like us…you cool down and then “overfill” the refrigerator.

RV refrigerators are available in two styles, either a compressor-powered refrigerator or an absorption refrigerator. Compressor-powered refrigerators sometimes referred to as two-way refrigerators use a small compressor unit to cool the refrigerator. Often they have two ways of powering the compressor either through 12-volt battery power or 110-volt power, hence the name two way refrigerator. The other option when looking at portable refrigerators are absorption-refrigerators. Absorption refrigerators, sometimes called three-way refrigerators, rely on a gas flow heat exchange system located in the back of the refrigerator to extract heat from the refrigerator and cool the internal temperature. Absorption refrigerators have three means of being powered; 12-volt battery power, 110-volt battery power, and LPG gas.

The Winnebago Travato is equipped with a 12-volt compressor-driven refrigerator/freezer. The Travato 59K and 59KL are equipped with a single door 4.3 cu. ft. refrigerator while the Travato 59G and 59GL floorplans are equipped  with a two-door 6.0 cu. ft. compressor-driven refrigerator.

Winnebago Travato Compressor-Driven Refrigerator

WATCH THIS VIDEO TO COMPARE COMPRESSOR REFRIGERATORS VS. ABSORPTION REFRIGERATORS

Let’s look at the pros and cons of compressor refrigerators and absorption refrigerators –

Compressor Refrigerators – 

Pros: 

  • Compressor refrigerators are able to chill to lower temperatures and cool more consistently than absorption refrigerators regardless of the outside ambient temperature, due to the more powerful compressor motor.
  • Most compressor refrigerators can double as freezers because of the powerful compressor motor.
  • Compressor refrigerators work well in uneven terrain, in fact most compressor refrigerators will operate just as well regardless of being flat or on an incline.
  • Compressor refrigerators are built with 12-volt power in mind, which means they run very efficiently on battery power compared to the absorption refrigerators.

Cons: 

  • Though modern refrigerators are extremely quiet, there is still some audible noise when the compressor is running, similar to that of your standard home refrigerator.
  • May need solar to assist in powering the batteries which ultimately power the refrigerator.

Absorption Refrigerators –

Pros: 

  • Absorption refrigerators can run for an extended period of time because they rely on the gas flow exchange system rather than 12-volt system.
  • You will not need to spend additional money on batteries and charging systems like solar power to run.
  • The heat exchange system of cooling means the refrigerator runs completely silent.

Cons: 

  • Due to the gas flow exchange system, an absorption refrigerator should remain level in order to function efficiently
  • Absorption refrigerators are run mostly on gas, so users will need to ensure they have good ventilation.
  • Absorption refrigerators tend to be inefficient when running on 12-volt power and will drain the batteries much quicker than a compressor refrigerator.
  • Because absorption refrigerators tend to be more heavily affected by ambient temperatures, they are usually only able to bring internal temperatures down to a certain level below the ambient rather than being able to achieve the set specific temperature like the compressor refrigerators.

Winnebago RV Production Quality Advantages

Winnebago has been a leader in the RV industry for over 60 years. Winnebago RVs are designed and built around you, with superior craftsmanship, advanced manufacturing technologies and steel-focused construction to enhance safety and reliability. From groundbreaking RVs to game-changing features to the spacious floorplans, Winnebago Innovation is unrivaled for continuous industry firsts in vehicle technology and design.

Winnebago Quality Difference

Key Winnebago Quality Advantages are listed below.

 Steel Superstructure Components:

    • SuperStructure cab design surrounds the cab area with a sturdy steel framework.
    • Seats and seatbelts are bolted to steel.
    • Windshields are installed automotive-style with urethane for added durability, strength and safety.
    • Appliances and cabinets are mounted to steel.
    • A steel firewall separates and protects the engine from the passenger compartments.
    • Interlocking joints evenly distribute the weight of the roof along the entire span of the sidewall. This results in the Winnebago “empty shell” being so strong it doesn’t need internal reinforcement.

One Piece Laminated Block Foam Roof (Fiberglass or Dicor)

    • 10 year/12 year Warranty dependent on model
    • Provides superior strength and longevity

E-Coating (Winnebago’s proprietary multistage full immersion electrocoating system)

      • Helps to minimize corrosion
      • This process is also used by leading automotive companies to protect their vehicles from corrosion.
      • The process involves charging each part with an electrical charge which attracts the protective coating, causing it to be “plated” onto the part.  The result is a uniform thickness of protective coating.

Watch a Video on the Winnebago E-Coating Process HERE

SmartSpace Design Approach

      • CAD aided design to ensure a precise fit for all components and reduce wasted space in each RV.
      • Winnebago manufactures their own holding tanks, so they can size and shape them to fit precisely into the space allotted.  This ability frees up surrounding space for additional storage.
      • Design Innovation with Furniture and Storage Solutions including innovations such as the Dream Dinette, Rest Easy Sofa etc.
      • Winnebago’s has its own in-house Stitchcraft area where the furniture coverings are cut and sewn to the perfect dimensions.

Winnebago Built

  • 70% of Winnebago motorhome components are made in-house vs. outsourcing
    • This allows Winnebago to ensure that parts will be available for years to come
    • This allows Winnebago to engineer precisely what is needed including benefits such as: ease of making the part fit exactly where it’s needed within the available space and allows Winnebago to distribute weight more evenly, which makes your motorhome handle better.
  • Winnebago manufactures components like water tanks, compartments, heat ducts, etc. in the Winnebago rotational molding facility.
    • Winnebago produces more than 3.5 million pounds of Rotocast goods annually. Each Rotocast molded component is designed to precisely fit its specific application and location.
  • Winnebago uses a Spin-Weld process to literally fuse the fittings to water tanks at a molecular level so they become part of the tank.

Ease of Ownership

  • Information and Parts Accessibility:
    • Wires are clearly labeled for easy identification – every 8/10 inches
    • Every part and component has a label with full part information for replacement
    • Owners have access to owner’s manuals and diagrams in online library

Winnebago SmartSpace Design

With so many RV manufacturers out there, how do you narrow down the right manufacturer and then the RV that is right for you? An important question to understand is what kind of company stands behind your RV. Winnebago Industries was incorporated in 1958 and since that time has been a leader in the RV industry. With a focus on Quality and Innovation Winnebago’s Customer centric approach is one that continues to make it a leader in the RV industry.

One of the many Innovations from Winnebago is the Winnebago SmartSpace Design.

SmartSpace Design innovations allow you to enjoy industry-first technology. Winnebago’s advanced parts supply system coupled with superior craftsmanship results in Winnebago Motorhomes being built with safety in mind and quality you can trust.

Two major components of Smart Design are SmartSpace and SmartStorage.

SMART

SMARTSPACE

The SmartSpace design philosophy encourages the use of innovative features to make the most efficient use of the available space in each coach. This design philosophy has led to the creation of features such as the BenchMark Dinette and the U-Shaped Dinette each with hidden storage compartments below the bench seats that can easily be converted into a sleeping space, unique pull out pantries and full-extension drawer slides found in many of the motorhome galley areas and the Flex Bed system allowing you to quickly and easily convert the living space or bedroom into different bed configurations. These are just some of the many innovations that have come about from the SmartSpace design philosopy.

Also included in the SmartSpace design process is molded component manufacturing. Winnebago builds their own rotational molded components manufactured in Winnebago’s Rotocast facility. Having the ability to manufacture components like water tanks, luggage compartments, heat ducts, and wheel wells in their own facility allows them to maximize space, ensure optimal weight distribution, and make spare parts available years down the road.

SMARTSTORAGE

Smart Storage is a better way to store your gear. It places bulky systems and tanks in improved configurations, leaving more room to maximize available basement storage. Exterior storage is also easy to access with innovative features such as a large trunk with multiple access doors and sliding storage trays on select models. Other features you might find include a storage well with drain plug, a compartment cover that converts into a picnic table, and tie downs to secure your items in place in open storage areas.

You’ll find a variety of SmartSpace and SmartStorage features across the entire Winnebago Motorhome lineup. Winnebago Smart Design is just one of the many reasons why Winnebago is the Motorhome manufacturer of choice for many RVers.
