The links from the photos at the website set up by the original owner
never did work, if you can't get to the website or the one photo I posted does not come up for you maybe you are running a pop-up blocker and need to turn it off?
Since folks have expressed an interest here is a link to my EBoard where a
number of photos of the Luxor are posted.

My best story about the Luxor so far has to do with the 4wheel steering.
It was obvious when I bought it that it had alignment problems, the front and rear axles just were not going to the same place which made it uncomfortable to drive. In reading the AllSteer manuals and talking to the original owner I noticed Oshkosh recommended adjusting the centerpoint of the rear axle every 10,000mi and the owner said it never had been done. I called Winnebago and they recommended taking it to Freightliner.
(In 1995 Oshkosh sold its motor home chassis division to Freightliner and
the Oshkosh designs became the original basis for Freightliner's motor home chassis). Well Freightliner knew nothing about AllSteer so I called Oshkosh which still makes the AllSteer system and it mostly gets used in fire engines, they recommended I try my local Pierce Fire Equipment dealer. A little checking and there was actually a service center just a few
miles from my house. It turned out they were great guys who were just thrilled to have something new and unusual to work on. They solved my alignment problems for a very reasonable rate (hourly rate below Freightliner!) and I mentioned it needed tires and they got me a set of Michelins (only Michelin makes a highway tread in the monster 425/65-22.5 tires this chassis uses on the rear) $500 cheaper than any source I could find. All in all the fire truck guys have turned out to be a real resource and I plan to have them do as much of my regular service as possible, they do both mobile and in shop service and are just great, I started out worried about servicing this unusual chassis but that part of it has worked out great!
