1972 Winnebago Brave

This motorhome is a 1972 Winnebago Brave.

These photographs were taken at the Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach, SC. What I know about this motorhome is that it was built on a Dodge chassis and there are very few of these rigs that are in this good of shape and still on the road being camped in.

The Full Product Brochure can be read here on the Winnebago Industries website. I think it's amazing that Winnebago Industries makes these historical documents available for everyone.

If you look at the thumbnail at the bottom of the page this was the complete product linup for 1969.

You know I'm wondering how much could a Winnebago folding camper could be going for now days ..... IF you could find one?

Going in full circle, don't be too surprised if you see a brand new Winnebago travel trailer coming in the other direction when you're traveling!

One thing you're really going to like is the price of those flat windshields. Around $100, installed, each.

If it were considered as a female I would say she's cute.

Look at the size of this rig. In Europe it might be seen on the same scale as a Prevost!

Was just looking at the specs ... it's powered by a 318 Dodge Engine. I remember those!
