Look out for exciting content from these RV enthusiasts this year.
By: GoLife Staff
We are excited to introduce Winnebago’s 2023 ambassadors. These adventure-loving RVers will be sharing their travels and tips with you here on the blog, on the Winnebago YouTube channel, and on their various social media platforms, including Instagram. Some of them may already look familiar to you, but we wanted to formally introduce everyone.
Read more about each ambassador below and find out how to follow along with their travels. Of course, we will also share content from other members of the Winnebago owner community and internal team, but these are the faces you will see most often on our blog, social media, and at shows!
Winnebago Brand Ambassadors
Avid RVers who endear people to the Winnebago brand and our products through engaging content and appearances at events.
The Fit RV: James & Stef Adinaro
Some of Winnebago’s very first ambassadors, James and Stef have owned two Winnebagos — first a one-of-a-kind bright yellow Travato, and currently an equally unique EKKO, the very first one!
They’ve been involved in many special projects for Winnebago over the years, like the original National Park Foundation Travato tour, new product launches (Revel, Travato with lithium batteries, Solis, etc.), and even an appearance on Ellen. Their website, The Fit RV, works to promote a healthy and active RV lifestyle, but not just for you, for your RV as well.
Follow James and Stef @TheFitRV on Facebook and Instagram for tips to keep your RV – and yourself – fit!

Newstate Nomads: Katelyn & Howard Newstate
Winnebago Vista NPF
Howard and Katelyn Newstate have proven that nothing is off limits in their five years of full-time travel. The Newstate Nomads showcase major destinations around the globe on their YouTube channel, helping fellow explorers plan trips and live like a local wherever they go.
Traveling over 80,000 miles across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico in their Winnebago Navion 24D, they spent 125 straight days boondocking in 2020 alongside their three dogs, Piper and Ella (puggle sisters), and Scout (their rescue pup from Mexico).

Greg has been a member of the Travato Owners and Wannabees FB group since it started and was an admin on the group for the first five years.
