A nice old winnie we spotted on our recent trip.

This guy was parked at the Harris State Beach campground in Brookings, Oregon last week while we were there. A nice looking ride I think, and we had a little evening concert as well when the owner broke out his guitar and serenaded the community after dark. I'm guessing mid 70's or so.

Based on my Father in-law's, I'd say it is a 1975. That is if the windshield slants in at the bottom.

I'd say its between '73 and '75. I have a '73 Winnebago Indian, and this looks almost identical. The main difference is the awning pattern, as mine is white and green stripes.

It looks well maintained. Beautiful Winnie.

I had the impression in looking at it that the awning was added but I could be wrong. He didn't have a toad and while we were there he fired it up and went to the store or somewhere nearby, it sounded like a hotrod. I'm thinking Chevy big block, maybe a 454.

More likely a 413 Dodge. They sound pretty mean when the exhaust is opened up.
