WINNEBAGO INDUSTRIES CELEBRATES ITS 50th ANNIVERSARY

Forest City, IA, February 12, 2008 Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), a leading United States motor home manufacturer, celebrated its 50th anniversary by ringing the closing bell on the New York Stock Exchange today. Key executives were on hand to commemorate this special occasion. Winnebago Industries was incorporated on February 12, 1958.
From small beginnings, Winnebago Industries has grown into an RV giant. With just 15 employees and a dream of bringing recreation vehicles to the American people, the Company's founder, John K. Hanson, turned Winnebago Industries into an American icon. The Company started making travel trailers in 1958. Eight years later in 1966, the first self-contained motor home rolled off the assembly line. Today, Winnebago Industries builds approximately 10,000 motor homes a year. Recently, the Company celebrated the production of its 400,000th motor home.

"Today is a very special day for our Company," said Winnebago Industries' Chairman of the Board and CEO Bruce Hertzke. "Fifty years ago today, the most recognized name in motor homes was born. We are extremely proud of our Company, products, dealers and most importantly the people that have made this Company what it is today. We look forward to the next 50 years with promise and the pledge to continue to bring innovative motor homes to the American people."
