On this week’s show we head back to the 2018 RV industry Open House in Elkhart, Indiana to check out new offerings that many of the manufacturers are bringing out for next year. We're scouting for ‘What’s Hot for 2019!”.
As we mentioned before, this is an industry only event and it is huge. The Open House stretches from the RVMH Museum and Northern Indiana Convention Center out to County Rd. 17 and up County Rd. 6 for at least a mile. In other words, you have to drive some if you expect to see most of the displays.
We start off at the Winnebago area on County Rd. 6 where we catch up with Bob Zagami and John DiPietro as they check out a couple of Winnebago’s new offerings.
John was interested in the new Vita and Porto class C motorhomes built on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis. These two twin units had a lot of interesting features and common sense designing. As John mentions, Winnebago definitely listened to its customers when designing the VITA and Porto.
We found Bob scouting out the new Micro Minnie 5th wheel trailer that will set the pace for this new size 5th wheel...especially with all the features built in and a suggested retail price at about $30,000. When’s the last time you found a new fifth-wheel for anywhere near $30,000? You have to check this out for yourself. www.winnebagoind.com
