In rural northern Iowa, the summer season of factory tours is starting to stir. Winnebago Industries will begin its annual tours on April 5. Located in Forest City, about 120 miles north of Des Moines, the 200-acre Winnebago factory complex includes the main assembly areas (which you'll see on the tour), the metal-stamping division, the plastics facility, the sawmill and cabinet shop, and the sewing and design departments. The tours will run twice a day until the end of October, and then once a day in November. For more about the tour, and contact information, see the Winnebago page on this website.
