Rear Bumper Replacement 2000 Horizon

I had the glue fail on my rear bumper and it came off in a windstorm. I ordered a replacement from Winnebago and when I went to put the rear grill on, I found it was different. The bumper frame was changed by approx 1/2 inch in height. Let me caution you now. If you are unaware of this change the manufacturer will not take it back unless you pay the freight. For me it would have been an additional $280.00. The second option they came up with was buy the newer model grill or use spacers. Oh by the way, this newer model had a price increase from $500.00 to $1800.00. I will attach the old grill with angle brackets. It may not look as nice, but this is a poor time of year to go to the added expense. If you need advice on the replacement procedures, let me know.

We've run into the same issue when replacing the rear bumper on a 2004 Brave. Somehow, the specs for these parts changes a little each year. Doesn't make sense but like you, I had to use some creative engineering to get the new bumper to fit properly. It isn't perfect but I'm the only one that notices the difference. Best of luck.
