I concur with what I have seen posted on here before: start at the top and work down. All else will be wasted unless you get any roof issue corrected FIRST. Then do searches on these forums relating to whatever you are tackling at that particular time. You have no idea how great a wealth of knowledge these guys have. Just look, listen, and study, and understand how that thing is put together while you are working on it. Once you get into it, the mystery sort of goes awayl
Good luck. I hope you gain as much enjoyment from working on yours as I do mine.

Here's a place that's a great resource for Winnie information;
Classic Winnebagos & Vintage RVs!
Site manager is a stickler for his rules, so keep that in mind when posting new threads, but a really good resource for your project. Good luck.
