The first few production units are in process and our goal is to ramp up to a robust manufacturing schedule by the end of fiscal 2017. RV PRO: In past years, Winnebago has been off and on again in terms of participating in Elkhart Open House Week. Will Winnebago participate in Open House Week this year? If so, what plans can you share? Happe: We do plan to have an increased presence at Open House Week this year. We will be sharing additional information as we get closer to the event. RV PRO: Do you have any other near- term objectives you can share? Happe: My near-term objectives have been to learn about the company's history, get up to speed on our products, meet our employee and dealer team, understand our 2016 business plan, get engaged in our stra- tegic initiatives, and gain alignment with our Board on future strategic priorities. Over time, I am really focused on helping our team create a stronger vision for the organization – one that we can cas- cade throughout our organization and build a winning business model around over the next three to five years. We will gain cred- ibility with our Board and investors, though, by executing our current plans well in the short-term and identifying ways we can elevate our performance quickly. … RV PRO: In previously published comments, you have talked about your desire to take Winnebago from "good to great."

We want to consistently deliver market and financial performance over an extended time that outperforms that rest of the industry.
