The 2017 Grand Tour may be the last of the best Winnebagos!! They are not in production right now why they retool the recent purchase of the Country Coach plant in Oregon, and no one knows what actually may come out of the factory in the future. I suspect the success of the new Horizon may dictate some of the new styling.
The 2017 Grand Tour should represent the peak of "nice features" for the fleet which may not be seen in future years. On the Freightliner side - It was still the Cummins ISL/450 hp Allison 3000, but a side radiator, V-ride, rear steering, Independent front suspension, and 3-stage engine brake - many of these features never trickled down to the other DPs in the fleet. On the Winnebago side, they went back to the underfloor Power Gear slide mechanisms on the heavy slides for the 45RL (this is a good thing), they went back to HWH leveling (also a good thing), and the full length Gerard type awnings. The coach is gorgeous and I always thought they took a few decorating tips from the early pre-Thor Entegra's to be honest, such as the band of color across the interior
If I could swing it, I would have one in my garage!
