Winnebago Spectrum 2000

I need some advise. Has anyone ever seen/owned/heard about a Winnebago Spectrum 2000 circa 1985-1989? What I know, so far, is that they were an experiment by Winnebago and only 95 were ever built. It is a 'built as a motorhome from the ground up' wonder. They were built with a 460 Ford engine mounted in the rear (it's a pusher). In 2001 some of the remaining 'new' units were refitted with a Triton V10. Basement air and front generator are the only other things I know. Please, I'd be much obliged for any other info or comments.

Thanks Warren. That's more info than even Winnebago has. They claim they recalled and destroyed all they made including specs and info.

Hi All, Interesting.I am the "Mark" that made the first post that was in the Link that WarrenH posted. The GMC refered to in the Link was my First GMC.
The Spectrum was an impressive RV, of the ones not destroyed most now have been repowered some with Diesel engines now. They were way ahead of the units then available as was the GMC.

I am new to these forums so I am not sure how it all works. Here goes!!

Hi Steve

In relation to the 1989 Spectrum 2000 Winnebago.
I was wondering if you may have any info on the front suspension of the 1989 spectrum 2000 Winnebago

I need to get some Tie rod ends, Ball joints and boots if i can identify the manufacturer.

Can you please return message me so we can discuss any information that you may have.

Thanks Mate

Regards

Fred

According to the following article the front suspension is a "fiat single track". http://www.spectrumrv.com.au/Brand.aspx?BrandId=11
Have you contacted winnebago about further information...they are usually pretty helpful in my inquiries
