    Hi drwolfik,

    Though Winnebago is originally a name for a Native American people, the name has been appropriated by Winnebago Industries -- a company that manufactures motor homes.

    Thus, "the wall of the Winnebego" would appear to be "the wall of a motor home" (made by Winnegego Industries).
