Winegard Rayzar z1 standard on Forest River line

BURLINGTON, Iowa — Winegard continues to reinforce its relationship with Forest River as the Winegard Rayzar z1 amplified HD digital RV antenna becomes the exclusive over-the-air antenna on all Forest River XLR Nitro, XLR Thunderbolt, and XLR Hyperlite lines of fifth-wheel toy hauler RVs built at Forest River’s Plant No. 45.

“We transitioned over to the Winegard Rayzar z1 because it is easy to install and has been very reliable with excellent performance,” said Bob Elson, Forest River plant manager. “Winegard has been proven in performance, quality, and reliability over the years. We are proud to have this offering available for our valued customers.”

The Rayzar z1 offers RVers the best features and performance, including: Optimal UHF and strong high-band VHF reception; easy rotation and no cranking up and down required; and a sleek and aerodynamic low-profile design with a small footprint that compliments any RV.

“Manufacturers desire products that are both visually appealing to their customers and offer superior performance in reception and durability,” said Greg Wyland, Winegard OEM sales manager. “When you take a look at our antennas, it is clear Winegard manufactures an advanced and superior product, from the antenna design and housing materials to the circuit boards and wiring. The Rayzar z1 is designed, manufactured, and built in the USA at our plant in Burlington, Iowa.

  1. The four extruding elements out the one end are not electrically connected to anything. They are just held in place between the plastic parts. What the heck are they for aesthetics?

  2. They are a part of the antenna. Obviously you know nothing about antennas and how they work.

    • Enlighten me on how a couple pieces of metal with nothing attached can be used as an antenna because that is exactly the way this antenna is assembled. I’ve opened it up. The large end does contain a UHF antenna element.
