Great looking rig, it is the same age as our 79 Silver Streak Trailer.

One thing you want to do is keep up with the joints on the roof to keep the leaks under control.

Hope you put a lot more miles on her.

Ken

Thank on the tip TXiceman, The people we got the mh from just did the roof with the snow stuff last summer and still looks good I am going to have it covered with that full cover this winter and come next spring i plan on doing the roof over and also windows and all the side joints, We have had trailers in the past and were trying out a motor home now and can tell now were going to like it, Anyone have any thoughts on pulling a small car with this thing it has a dodge 440 (7.2) and a tow package.

You are going to have some serious fun, without the large investment. Good job. When we bought our first coach in 1975, a 22', built by Fan Trailer (everyone was getting into the act back then) with a Chrysler 318, we would have killed to be able to afford a coach like yours - bunk beds, for our two kids . . . Wow!

Tow something that stays within your GCVW, don't let your tranny overheat, and you should have no problems. One of the keys to having fun with these things is to maintain them; takes a little of your time, but that's part of it. Always finding neat little ways to improve something is also part of it . . . and most satisfying when it works!

Hi Ridgerunner,
I'm new here too and we purchased a 1979 Winnebago Brave 27ft in May. We love ours. The interior was redone some years back and is in great shape. The outside of it is okay but the front could use some paint. It currenly has 42,000 miles on it. How many miles does yours have? I'm going to try to post a picture.

Looks nice lacollins4 whats that over the drivers cab, Were taking ours out for the fisrt time on sept 5 though the 9th to the ocean and am sure were going to have fun, Ours had a cargo carrier on the top back i ended up taking off and sealing up the mounting holes real good it was a add on and to me it was just another place for leaks.
