Assembly line workers Jared Maas, right, and Stan Trca work under the chassis of an RV on the Winnebago Industries assembly line in Forest City in March 2016. There was not enough room at the north plant, so work began on the new site, nicknamed "Big Bertha." The company then started building 600 motor homes a week. The first Winnebago motor homes were 19-feet long. The company now is manufacturing 45-foot-long motorhomes.
- Look closely at the photo and compare it with the 2013 Winnebago factory photo. Describe the technological changes that make constructing recreational vehicles possible.
- What evidence could be used to answer: How did the changes in transportation affect people's lives?
