Forest City, Iowa
The following history excerpts are from the Winnebago Industries website http://www.winnebagoind.com
In the mid-1950s Forest City, Iowa was looking at a bleak future. The farm economy was down and young people were leaving this rural area. Forward-looking members of the community set about bringing industry to town.
In 1958, businessman John K. Hanson and others convinced a California company to open a travel trailer factory in Forest City.
After a rough start, the operation was purchased by five Forest City residents and John K. Hanson became president. In 1960 the name of the company was changed to Winnebago Industries.
In 1966 the first motor home rolled off the Winnebago Industries assembly lines. Through use of the assembly line and other manufacturing innovations in the motor home industry, Winnebago Industries could produce a motor home that sold for half the price of competitors’ models.
Much has changed since the first recreational vehicles were produced in the American heartland of Forest City, Iowa, by Winnebago Industries more than 50 years ago. But much also remains the same.
The Winnebago Industries commitment to providing high quality, great value, efficient design and eye-catching style in motor homes remains the driving force in Forest City, Iowa.
MCD Provides Winnebago Industries Day/Night Shade Systems
2010 is another year of growth as MCD Innovations provides their advanced American Duo™ and American Solo™ Shade Systems for most of the popular Winnebago Industries product line. Now, what once was an aftermarket product, is a standard feature on Class A, B and C Winnebago offerings.
These highly sought after shade products keep the damaging rays of the sun out of your RV while providing a cooler interior allowing your air conditioning system to work more effectively. Another benefit of the daytime shades is their ability to virtually black out your exterior windows so a passerby cannot see in, while those on the inside have almost 100 percent visibility to their outside surroundings!
The night shades are 100% light blocking and cancel out ambient outside light when ever they are used. Another benefit of these shades is the ability to keep the RV interior more insulated, thus warmer on those cooler winter days and nights. When used with the powered cockpit day/night shade system that covers the windshield and side windows, your RV interior can be totally shaded in the daytime and essentially blacked out at night. Esthetically, these modern blinds look great in any décor and are offered in both powered and manual versions for your RV.
Do you have an older Winnebago without MCD Innovation shades? Now your RV can have all the benefits that the new Winnebago’s have by retrofitting it with modern MCD Shades. Contact MCD Innovations or any of our authorized dealers. You will see and feel the difference with new American Duo™ or American Solo™ Shades in your RV.
