A skylight is not the same as your roof vent. Click on the 39 second video in this link.

It is nearly 30 years old, find something newer if you
have the means.

Karl, you gave me a very good laugh! The thought of the guys head sticking out the roof, while his wife is driving the MH down the road, wondering why everyone is waving at her!! LMBO! Watch the video!

I love fixing things on mine but im also capable if i get stuck some where .

Another thing to conceder is the old Eyebrow Winnies are well built and tough. Still a lot of them around for reasonable prices. Plus they are in my mind anyway a Classic Design. The 95 wasn't an eyebrow but still in the same tradition of good solid basic "A" class RV's.

I am glad you guys took my post in the good nature it was offered. I have learned something new, thank you. My MH is 28 years old (1988) and does not have a skylight. Now that I have knowledge of them, I like the idea. I wonder how hard it would be to add that to my shower?

I do not want to take this thread off topic.

I already offered my view on the value of this MH as a first buy, and feel it is too personal to make a final decision on what we know here, but it does need at least 2 things before the OP should give any of her money to the seller, that being a good inspection from a knowledgeable person who is not trying to sell her anything, and some more comparison shopping.

I wish the OP good luck.

just bought 1991 holiday rambler 1000(31ft) for 7995.00.the cabin was truly like new with a new fridge and new awning.the dealer claimed to have "checked it out" before we took delivery,but you can't believe everything. after a few repairs(some major, some minor) by a local ,well known semi/rv shop, we will be able to take our maiden voyage with no worries.i asked them to check the whole chassis. repairs were 4700.00. that puts us in our original range, we were looking .

At the risk of sounding like a total goober, can you tell me what eyebrow means? Assuming Winnie is winabego.


Oh, ps, I don't mind being hijacked! Especially for a good chuckle!

I spent the last year looking at RVs in this price range and this one looks about average for what they're asking. I ended up buying a 1986 Winnebago 27RT Class A and have been restoring/renovating/redecorating it and will have about as much invested in it when I'm done. To me this one is an okay deal, not a great once in a blue moon deal, but not a bad deal if it checks out mechanically and things seem to work as they should.

If you don't get it, there are quite a few others in the same price range. Craigslist may find some locally to you.

This is an Eyebrow Winnie "Brave" it was the distinctive shape above the windshields that spawned the moniker. Not many on lots these days but several for sale by owner. Winnebago has even started making the shape again in 2015 I believe. Brave Overview | Winnebago RVs

And this.

They may not be a good choice for a first coach, but they are a true classic.

Hello,
OP posted that its too old, but mine is a 82 just drove her 2,000 miles with no problems. Had her for going on 6 years, new battery's, new rubber, a tune up, new fuel filters, a few wax jobs. Besides the 1st trip haven't had to pull over yet. There are good "old" MH out there.
Currently in Quartzside AZ, That's me waxing her.
Keep looking you'll find one.
Tim
ps I paid $4500.00, 44,000 miles and just under 300 hours on the genie.
