point that will appeal to a large customer base, even as a second vehicle."
"We're excited about the new and unique floorplan the Forza offers," said Nate
McClain, owner of McClain's RV, Dallas, TX. "We've had a tremendous amount of
interest in that price point for Class A diesel, so we're ecstatic that
Winnebago Industries has given us the Winnebago Forza."
