In the midst of an expansive array of newly introduced high-priced camper vans and motorhomes, Winnebago has ventured into the realm of affordable travel trailers with the introduction of the Access. Available in various lengths and configurations, the Access is set to revolutionize the market with a starting price of just $29,600, accommodating up to eight occupants. When it becomes available for purchase in November 2023, it will claim the distinction of being Winnebago’s most budget-friendly trailer by a considerable margin.

So, what exactly does one get for this remarkably competitive price point? Winnebago’s standard package for the Access includes an assortment of practical features such as electric tongue and stabilization jacks, water tank pad heaters, a two-inch accessory receiver hitch, integrated WiFi, an insulated underbelly for enhanced pipe and wire protection, and a groundbreaking aerodynamically designed front end. Depending on the chosen layout, a queen-size bed can be found at either the front or rear of the trailer, complemented by a convertible sofa and dinette area.

While comprehensive details regarding optional upgrades are yet to be disclosed, Winnebago’s website spotlights four distinct floorplans for the Access. Notably, two models, the 25ML and 30BH, boast expansive slideouts on the left side, affording space for theater seating. The 28FK model also accommodates theater seating with a smaller slideout. Meanwhile, the 26BH model eschews slideouts in favor of an exterior kitchen featuring a pull-out griddle, drawers, and a refrigerator. Bunk beds are included in the 26BH and 30BH layouts, while all configurations feature a full bathroom, a spacious dinette, and a kitchen equipped with a three-burner stove.

Although a comprehensive list of available options is not yet available, Winnebago has highlighted several enticing upgrades for the Access line. These include porcelain toilets, interior and exterior LED lighting, and rectangular skylights for ample natural illumination. Additionally, the option for thicker sidewalls, enhancing the trailer’s structural integrity, is also presented. Given that Winnebago’s smallest overlanding trailer, the Winnebago Hike 100, commands a starting price of $46,135, the Access, priced at over $15,000 less, is poised to attract a new wave of buyers to Winnebago showrooms.

Joel Eberlein, the Vice President of Winnebago Towables, underlined the company’s storied heritage by stating, “Many people may not realize that Winnebago Industries started as a towable company in 1958. We are thrilled to expand our legendary portfolio of Winnebago brand travel trailers into the conventional-class segment, which will give more people the opportunity to experience the joy of outdoor travel.”

While full pricing details will be unveiled closer to the Access’ official release date in November, enthusiasts and potential buyers alike can catch an up-close glimpse of this innovative travel trailer at the Hershey RV Show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, this September.
