FOREST CITY, Iowa — Winnebago Towables announced today the introduction of its first full-size, luxury fifth-wheel, the Destination, to be unveiled next week at the National RV Trade show in Louisville, Ky.
Destination is a full sized fifth-wheel that combines motorhome styling and residential interiors.
“The new Destination truly lives up to the iconic Winnebago name,” said Winnebago Towables President Johnny Hernandez. “I am very proud of our team and the results of their efforts to push the envelope of traditional fifth-wheel design to achieve a product that all other fifth wheels will soon be measured by.”
Destination’s front cap integrates an aerodynamic design, including an air dam for increased wind deflection, as well as unique styling features including a multidimensional paint design and LED light strips. The optional rear cap is influenced by our motorhome heritage with a touch of sports car styling. Exterior features include aluminum steps, 30-by-78-inch entry door with opening window, 12-inch main chassis rails, drop storage, frameless tinted windows, sports car styled taillights and back up lights, hydraulic front jacks and a standard champagne colored gel coat fiberglass wall.
The spacious interior is a combination of a 96-inch interior width (100-inxh exterior) and a radius ceiling. The main floor slideouts, powered by hydraulics, are 6-feet, 9-inches tall with extra tall windows adding to the overall open feeling of the Destination.
The galley features top quality hardwood cabinets with a contemporary radius design and a tremendous amount of drawer and cabinet storage space, a full size pantry with glass door, solid surface countertops, recessed range, a residential French door, 20-cubic-foot refrigerator in either black or stainless steel, and an optional stainless steel residential-sized dishwasher.
The entertainment center’s 50-inch TV, sliding desk drawer, and optional fireplace with a hearth add to the ambiance of this fifth wheel. Your customers will have no problem listening to the TV or stereo because we included the quiet air system for maximum cooling with minimal sound.
At the top of the hardwood stairs are two 74-inch tall six panel doors. One door leads to the spacious bathroom with a 60-inch one-piece fiberglass shower, large vanity with solid surface countertop, built-in lavatory sink and a ceramic toilet. Behind the other door is the master suite featuring a 6-foot, 9-inch ceiling height extending the open feel to the sleeping quarters. The “flex bed” raises the head of the bed providing a comfortable position for watching TV or just sitting up in bed. The bedroom also features an eight-drawer dresser with deep, 16-inch drawers.
A special feature of the bedroom is the magic mirror/TV design that acts like a mirror when the 32-inch TV is not turned on and frames the television picture beautifully when it is on. Finally, to top off the master suite is a full-size, cedar-lined, walk-in closet has four large radius shelves.
The Destination will be available for viewing at the Winnebago display in Booth 3201 in the North Wing of the Kentucky Expo Center.
