"Usable" floorplan area sounds about right over all. Just depends on what the manufacturer includes in the "usable" area. In '92, Winnebago called our Adventurer a 32' model. But measuring bumper-to-bumper with a tape measure, it comes out to nearly 40'. The 8' or so in question appears to be mostly the front bumper to the back of the "cab" area, which is a fair stretch, since the front is raked back a bit and there's a fair bit of leg room ahead of the cab area seats, plus more overhang for the front end. If I were to guess, they used the trucking industry "BBC" (Bumper to Back-of-Cab) measurement and subtracted it to leave the rest of the chassis as the living area measurement. Nice to get some "free" length, but we quote it as a 40-footer for campgrounds, since that gives a fairer idea of how much rig to fit a site.

So what's the big deal about the model number ? If the size and layout suit you , good for you and I hope you fully enjoy it.

Can you tell the lenght of my mh, a 2010 Gulfstream model 8367 ? It is 38'1" long...

All of this is just the opposite of boat models. They usually overstate the length to make it sound as though you are getting more boat for your money. RV models try to make it seem easier to park.


As others have said, read the data sheet, and get the one you like.

Are you sure you're reading the tape measure correctly? Winnebago lists the overall length of the Adventurer 32RQ as 32'.

1992 Adventurer:
http://winnebagoind.com/resources/br...nturer-bro.pdf

The listed length of our 2001 Adventurer 32V was 32' 11", and the listed length of our 2013 Adventurer 32H is also listed as 32' 11". The overall length of the 2013 is a few inches shorter than the published length in that it reflects the body style used until October 1st 2013. Since Winnebago only publishes brochures at the beginning of a model year any changes made throughout the year will not be reflected.

The newer body style is actually 33' 3" which is reflected in the 2014 brochure that uses the same body style.

2001 Adventurer:
http://winnebagoind.com/resources/br...nturer-bro.pdf

2013 Adventurer:
http://winnebagoind.com/resources/br...bro_2013_x.pdf

2014 Adventurer:
http://winnebagoind.com/resources/br...-Digital.X.pdf

The listings for both our Adventurers were correct to within less than an inch. It's hard to believe they would list yours as 8' under the actual length. The largest Adventurers built in 1992 are the 34RQ and the 34RA. Both are listed as having an overall length of 34'
