What helped the margins expand?

In the third quarter, Winnebago’s motorhome segment’s adjusted EBITDA margin shrunk to just 0.2%, much worse than 4.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Nonetheless, the company posted a solid expansion in its profit margin from the owables segment. In the last quarter, Winnebago’s adjusted EBITDA margin from the towables segment expanded to 16.5% from 14.5% a year ago.

The company attributed its overall margin expansion to a positive revenue mix, pricing adjustments, and its consistent cost mitigation efforts. In the first nine months of its fiscal 2019, Winnebago’s operating margin has expanded to 7.8% from 6.8% in the first nine months of its fiscal 2018.
