January 16, 2019 — Aiming to bring greater freedom and comfort to people traveling in wheelchairs or with limited mobility, Winnebago Industries has introduced three accessibility-enhanced motorhomes, the Intent 30R AE, Adventurer 30T AE, and Forza 34T AE. The new wheelchair-friendly models are available in three standardized floor plans that include the most commonly requested options.

The standardization of floor plans aims to make the accessibility option more visible to customers, as easy to purchase as a standard Winnebago, as well as provide economies of scale to help reduce costs to customers over time. The new models will debut today at the 2019 Florida RV SuperShow at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida.
The vehicles reduce the need for extra planning related to out of town or local travel, provide more options for service animals, and give owners comfort in knowing they’ll always have a wheelchair-friendly bathroom and sleeping arrangement.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2012 report, there are about 3.6 million people over the age of 15 who use a wheelchair, with an additional 11.6 million people using a cane, crutches or walker to get around. To serve these large markets, Winnebago goes beyond offering customers a sense of travel and adventure with an accessibility-enhanced motorhome.
Customers interested in purchasing a Winnebago Accessibility-Enhanced RV can choose from three standardized floor plans that feature the most common customization requests, including:
•Platform wheelchair lift with an 800-pound lifting capacity.
•Powered roll-up lift door, with wall-mount and key-fob remote controls for wheelchair entry and exit.
•Expanded hallway and bathroom areas for greater accessibility.
•Large roll-in shower with an assist bar and available folding bench seat, with extended lever faucet controls and adjustable shower head.

•Electric adjustable queen bed.
