The Walls in Your Winnebago Motorhome

The inside story on our motorhome walls.

We revolutionized the industry with Thermo-Panel construction, which sandwiches metal framework, ducting and insulation between the interior and exterior walls. We’ve continued to advance our technology even as others try to copy it.

Winnebago Sidewall
Winnebago Sidewall Cutout

Sidewalls cut with a CNC router –  Computer-controlled routers create precise window and door openings, plus channels for the wiring and SuperStructure. This precision enables us to create an insulated thermal break between the internal structure and the exterior to prevent harmful condensation. Others use less-accurate handheld routers to cut channels, windows and doors, which can lead to gaps in insulation, weak seals and poor durability.

Appliances and Cabinets Anchored in Steel – A laser projection system ensures correct alignment and placement of the steel panels mounted in the sidewall to serve as attachment points to securely mount cabinets and appliances. Other manufacturers mount cabinets and appliances to cheap pine wood boards placed inside the sidewalls, or even screw their appliances directly to the sidewall. Which would you rather have: your cabinets and appliances mounted to steel, or mounted to wood?

Pressure Rollers – We use calibrated pressure rollers and advanced adhesives to combine high-gloss exterior fiberglass, a welded aluminum support structure, high-density foam insulation and a finished interior wall into lightweight, durable and incredibly strong sidewalls and roofs. Other manufacturers use cheaper vacuum-powered systems to apply less-precise pressure, which results in uneven bonding, reduced durability and weaker support.

Winnebago’s wall construction is just one of the many reasons why Winnebago is the Motorhome manufacturer of choice for many RVers.
