Driven by strong demand, net revenues came in at $960.7 million, which surpassed estimates of $839.4 million and compared favorably with $402.5 million in the year-ago period.
The Towable segment’s revenues rose substantially to $555.7 million from the year-ago period due to rising demand for its Grand Design RV and Winnebago branded products. Also, the Motorhome segment witnessed revenue growth of 89.2% to $385.3 million.

President and CEO of Winnebago Michael Happe said, “We are also continuing to invest in our business to ensure we are best positioned to meet the persistent, elevated demand we anticipate in quarters to come, driven by the secular and ongoing growth in outdoor lifestyle products and a positive change in consumer preferences for leisure and family activities.”
In May, C.L. King analyst Scott Stember maintained a Buy rating and price target of $99 on the stock. This implies 51% upside potential from current levels.
