Especially when it come time to replace a windshield, compared to most newer motor homes!

A few more pictures of our '75 Chieftain:


Here's the external TV mount in use. We had to remove the awning because the fabric was quite rotted and one of the arms broke. New ones aren't 'too' expensive though. You can also see our stabilizing jacks....


The new flooring in the living and sleeping area. You can see the original carpeting up front.


Here's the Chieftain hauling a trailer for our sports car club. It holds 3+ miles of wire on a reel, 10 deep cycle 12v batteries, fire extinquishers and other stuff. Has a bit of weight to it, but the Winnie handles it fine.

dburden:

IMO the Winnies from that era will be like the 65 Mustang,the 69 Camaro, and a Jeep CJ7, they will be icons for restoration. Someone who wants into an RV at a good proce and has some hands on skills would do well to go this route and get out there and see the USA. I imagine your racing has been even more enjoyable having a nice place to relax on the road.

Thanks and keep us posted on your classic "Eye brow" Winnebago.

I had some spare time after moving the front and rear suspension from one Jetta to another so I was able to bolt in the newly re-covered front seats on the Winnie:

Thanks for the interior photos of the 75 Winnie. I always like to see the floor plans.

What chassis and engine is this on (Ford, Chevy, Dodge)?

Dave, I love your Winnebago especially the recovered seats, outside TV and head lights.

I found this sleeping bag at a garage sale last summer and all my camping friends get a kick out of it. I use it for a blanket on the bed.

Cool bag! Always on the lookout for Winnie stuff. I want to get one of the Winnie Tonka trucks and also want to try to build one out of Legos like they show on an ad.

Our Chieftain is the Dodge chassis with the 440. Goes from 0-30 pretty quickly, then the aerodynamics take over. We've been averaging 7.5mpg which is pretty normal I guess.

I have one of those Winnie toys! A friend bought one for me even though I don't own a Winnie. It was nice of her though.

This one looks like mine but in better shape.

Grateful thanks to you and your wife for your service to our country. How long can you camp at Ft. Lewis?

Hi Dave. At Ft Lewis you can stay 28 days in one spot during the off season and two weeks in one spot during the peak season. We've been here all winter and just keeping moving over one space every month. We did have a bad ice storm in January and had a lot of trees fall into empty spots so we got to stay in our spot for two months.
