I'm willing to bet it will be a design from the Forza, fancied-up and with a 380 to 400 motor.

No whispers yet about the smaller Tour/Grand Tour? I see the only WBGO DP's still seem to be the Horizon and Forza. Went to the RV show here in Dallas and VERY few Class A's on display. I was very disappointed to see the 2018 RV of the Year Horizon out on a lot hidden between towables. Only Newmar had a nice display of A's. Towables are the wave of the future it seems. Are we class A owners in trouble?

Did you happen to see a Forza 35T show price?

Asking for a friend!

On Facebook, Winnebago commented about their RV show schedule thru January.

I asked about the diesel models and specifically Grand Tours.

Their answer was Horizons and Forzas.

Well there you have it I guess. No smaller Tour. Guess we'll go check out Newmar and Foretravel for a smaller luxury coach. Newmar has one already and FT is coming out with one.

FYI here's the agenda from the facebook page that mjeffery mentioned.

Facebook Live video schedule (all times EDT)

Monday (9/24):

9:30 a.m. Russ Garfin will reveal an all-new Class C Winnebago
1:30 p.m. See our newest Class A Gas product introduction with Niles Whitehouse

Tuesday (9/25):

9 a.m. Winnebago Towables will unveil a new Toy Hauler and highlight the Minnie family
1 p.m. Winnebago Class A Diesel highlights with Ryan Roske
4 p.m. Learn about Pure3 technology and how it works on the Winnebago Travato

Doesn't appear to be a launch of any new Class A units.

Based upon visiting with Winnebago reps at the GNR in July, the Grand Tour and Horizon coaches are to be built at the old CC facility in Oregon. The Winnebago reps advised me they have told the dealers of their near term plans. I asked the Winnebago reps to provide a media release regarding their plans to us, the consumers, but haven't seen anything yet. They advised that the focus at Forest City is the Forza and smaller units.

I know this isn't much new information but we didn't get any more.

Bob

I was at the old CC location a while ago. Talked with one of the office staff (can't say who). He said IF they brought back the CC brand it would never be on the DynoMax chassis, which, to me, was one of it's biggest advantages.

I agree. I think it would be very positive for Winnebago Industries to revive the DynoMax. Build it using CC's blueprints, (they own them now)......and build the new coach around it.



IMHO it should be the new focal point......AND no one else has anything like it. Nothing quite like the DynoMax.


I think it's a mistake to ignore the opportunity.
