The Towable segment generated revenues of $313 million, up 33.4% from the previous year, driven by strong organic growth across the Grand Design RV and Winnebago-branded product lines.

Winnebago stated that it is working to mitigate the challenges caused by inflation and stabilize its Motorized segment.
