Winnebago Factory Tour

The largest motorhome manufacturing facility in the world, Winnebago Industries, Inc., is headquartered right here in Forest City, in what we refer to as the most productive 60 acres in North Iowa. Founded in 1958, "Winnebago" became a household word when the first recreation vehicle manufacturer to build motorhomes in an automotive-style assembly line system. We build our motorhomes in one of the most technologically advanced RV manufacturing facilities in existence today.
