It seems like I just received the December issue of Motorhome magazine in the mail when, in the mailbox yesterday, the January issue arrived.
I was thumbing through it when I went to bed last night when an article caught my attention. It was the Motorhome 2015 Readers' Choice Awards.
There are many categories in the Readers' Choice Awards but the first category was what interested, and pleased, me.
In the category of motorhomes, it is divided three ways: Class A Motorhomes, Class B Motorhomes and Class C Motorhomes. The awards are like the Olympics, there's Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. In some categories, there are some ties.
For Class A Motorhomes, Tiffin Motorhomes won the Gold, Winnebago Industries won the Silver and Newmar Corp. won the Bronze.
For Class B Motorhomes, Winnebago Industries won the Gold, Pleasure-Way Industries won the Silver and Leisure Travel Vans/Triple E Recreational Vehicles won the Bronze.
For Class C Motorhomes, the one that pleases me the most since I bought a Class C this year, Winnebago Industries won the Gold (with a special emphasis on their Minnie Winnie line of motorhomes, which is what I bought), Jayco Inc. won the Silver and Forest River won the Bronze.
It looks like I bought The Beast during a banner year for Winnebago, at least as far as Motorhome magazine's readers are concerned.
