Thanks to its long history of manufacturing outstanding motorhomes and travel trailers, Winnebago has always been one of the most well-known and respected brands in the RV space. Now, the company has introduced an exciting new towable poised to bring its legendary craftsmanship to a broader audience. The all-new Access travel trailer has a starting MSRP of just $29,600, but from the looks of its long list of features and amenities, there were few compromises made in its design.
Available in a variety of lengths and four unique floorplans, the Access features thoughtful Winnebago design inside and out. For instance, the travel trailer has a unique aerodynamic design to help make towing a simple and efficient process. It also comes with a factory-installed 200-watt solar panel, thicker sidewall metal for increased durability and stability, and reinforced underbed storage that can be used in a number of creative and practical ways.
Depending on the floorplan, Winnebago’s newest model can comfortably sleep up to eight people. It comes with a well-appointed indoor kitchen and an outdoor galley for entertaining at the campsite. Large skylights provide plenty of natural light, while LED bulbs illuminate the vehicle inside and out. And, of course, the Access exhibits Winnebago’s trademark build-quality and exceptional customer service and support.
“One of the great things about the Access, beyond its reliability and abundant amenities, is the fact it is part of the industry’s best dealer network,” says Winnebago’s towable division VP Joel Eberlein via a press release. “Winnebago dealers are factory-trained and supported by our advanced parts supply system so they can provide superior service and peace of mind to consumers long after their purchase. But, perhaps most important, Access owners will join Winnebago’s vibrant community of RV enthusiasts, eager to share travel tips and memories made on the open road.”
While the Access represents Winnebago’s entry into the value-conscious market space, you wouldn’t know it by looking at its long list of features. Those include a fully enclosed and heated underbelly, paired with 12-volt tank heaters, allowing owners to extend their camping season even when temperatures start to drop. The trailer also has an electric tongue jack, power stabilizing jacks, and a two-inch accessory receiver hitch for adding a bike rack or other cargo hauler. The unit even comes prepped for Wi-Fi, making it easy to stay connected while on the road.
“Many people may not realize that Winnebago Industries started as a towable company in 1958,” Eberlein says. “We are thrilled to expand our legendary portfolio of Winnebago brand travel trailers into the conventional-class segment, which will give more people the opportunity to experience the joy of outdoor travel. Understanding the importance of this endeavor, we built the Access using insights gained from conversations with dealers and consumers—to ensure it met their varied needs and wishes. Equipped with these insights and leading-edge production capabilities, we know we built a best-in-class towable. In fact, Access owners are sure to enjoy outdoor adventures with a level of comfort and convenience they won’t find anywhere else.”
The Access will officially debut at the Hershey RV show in September. But if you’re looking for a closer look at this intriguing travel trailer, check out the video above. Then, head over to the Winnebago website to learn more.
