The motorhome that launched Winnebago

Sandy Burns of RVtravel.com interviews RV Historian Al Hesselbart about the first Winnebago motorhome. The Winnebago F-19 debuted in 1967 with a price tag of less than $5,000, half that of other motorhomes at the time. The “F” was for “Ford chassis” and the “19” for its length of 19 feet. This was the motorhome that brought Winnebago to the public eye as the first affordably priced motorhome. Within a few years, it established Winnebago as a household name and a generic term for motorhomes.

The Green RV Project--Introduction

RVing is not only a great way to reduce one’s carbon footprint, but also a great way to comfortably enjoy natural wonders and great places. Lucky for us, new and advancing technologies have made it possible to extend trips into nature while still maintaining the comforts of home, and at a more affordable price than ever.

What if your RV or the RV you’re considering purchasing could be modified not only to make it more comfortable and convenient when away from hookups, but use less energy, thereby reducing its carbon footprint? That's what the Green RV Project is all about. RVtravel.com is working with a number of RV and energy industry companies to take a regular travel trailer and modify it for better use off the grid and more energy efficient. Our goal is to show RVers that they can make a difference by making these straightforward changes to their own RVs.
