Again, thanks again for sharing this great coach and info. I am really enjoying it.

I am sure price was at least part of it, the AllSteer system was expensive. Original owner told me he paid 232,500 for it heavily
discounted at the Atlanta RV show in 1995 dollars

Madrone: Do you know how many are left? Have you ever seen another one on the road? I am going to the Tampa show this week and I will look up the Winny people and pick their brains on this coach. That price does sound a little high but given the technolodgy for the time, that price does not seem out of line plus the interior shots you provided would indicate your coach is as modern as any I have seen today with the only exception of no slides. All in all I would personally compare your coach at the time to perhaps a Foretravel or Travel Supreme given the features and styling. If you come across any more info. I sure hope you will post it for all of us to see. Thanks again and I sure love your coach.

No I have never seen another of the 14 built on the Oshkosh AllSteer chassis, I have been posting on various forums hoping to find some of the others. I have seen one other Luxor (they were only built for three years)
on a Freightliner chassis before I found mine, it was seeing that one that got me interested in the AllSteer when it came up for sale near me. Seems to me the marketing idea behind the Luxor was Winnebagos attempt at the time to penetrate the high end market, why they did not continue the model into the slide era I have no idea. For me as a loner I have plenty of room and do not have slides in the way when I am on the road, so I like it as is.

BTW, Winnebago still has the Luxor brochures on their website for the
'96 and '97 model years (not AllSteer) that show how nice they really are.

I swear I saw some similarities in that coach and what I drive today.

Some things in life are worth changing, and some things should remain the same.

Thanks for sharing.

I talked with a guy in the Winny Service Dept via phone today concerning a question on my coach and after a few minutes I brought up your coach to this guy and he was very aware of the all steer and this concept. I told him to come to this thread and see if he could shed some additional information on this coach. He was very receptive. I will be at the Tampa show on Thursday and will make it a point to stop by and see if Bryan from Winny will be there and ask him to dig through their archieves for some additional info.
