Launched to celebrate the Year of the Outback 2006 and Australia’s spirit of adventure, The Adventurer is a brand new model from motorhome industry leaders, Winnebago Industries.

The Adventurer is a totally self-contained motorhome which drives like a car and is very economical to run. It is designed for those who love the freedom to explore the country side – from long weekends to as long as it takes.

Commenting on the launch of The Adventurer range, Winnebago Industries Managing Director, Bruce Binns, said; “The Adventurer fills the gap in our already extensive model line-up, as an affordable alternative for many people wishing to getaway regularly and enjoy life.”

The Adventurer is available in a 5 speed manual transmission on a Fiat Ducato Chassis and a 4 speed automatic transmission variant on a Ford Transit chassis. An all-wheel drive version is also available.

Built by hand at the Winnebago factory in outer Sydney, The Adventurer boasts more than generous storage compartments for recreation and sports equipment, and comfortably accommodates two adults with provision for another.
