We enjoyed the tour very much. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the building process and company. The tour began with a 20 minute video that point out how great Winnebago is compared to its competitors. That got a little monotonous, but hey, you gotta market your product. After the video we loaded into an old motorhome that had... More

We own a Winnebago View, so on a cross-country trip we thought it would be interesting to stop in and see where and how she was made. The tour starts with a video, which is somewhat interesting but is also kinda like a long infomercial for Winnebago, about where they're better than the competition. It's also the exact same video...

Very friendly and informal. Very good video to start the tour and then a walk through 4 or more processing areas throughout a very large complex. The bus ride from site to site was very nice on a rainy day. You could talk to the workers and it was 2 hours quickly gone.

Well if you ever wanted to know how they make a Winnebago RV then you must check out this two hour tour. Very worthwhile and our guide (Mark) was excellent. The museum was also enlightening.

The Winnebego Tour is excellent. The video watched prior to boarding the bus to see the production area is informative. It was very impressive to go into the building named "Big Bertha" and see the various stages of construction. Lowell was fantastic explaining all of the information along the way. Interesting to see the sewing area and all the nice... More
