Winnebago Adventurer Help

Looking to purchase a 2008 Winnebago Adventurer 37GL Limited. It looks great but is unique in that itís a gas pusher with the Chevy Workhorse drivetrain with Allison trans. Not much info on gas engine in rear out there and trying to avoid a tragic purchase. It only has 31,000 miles and camping world claims itís great but looking for real peoples comments. Please help comment with pros and cons and any known pitfalls to look for. Much appreciated and thanks for the add.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I'm not a Winnie guy so can't advise you on that!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

The gas pushers are known as UFOs. A search of Winnebago UFOs brings up these previous threads on the topic. Cheers.

Lots of folks look especially for those gas pushers and workhorse/Alison chassis. I see people posting great things about them.

I also see people posting about brake issues, suspension issues and basement A/C issues. None of which are deal killers.

I’d worry most about buying from Camping World. Serious deal killer issues with their sales tactics. Read lots on both subjects here and at Winnie Owners Forum.

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good info to share.

Two things:
1. Be very and i mean very careful when dealing with Camping World. That is one company I personally would NEVER deal with.
2. Make sure you hire an independent RV inspector to go over the rig from nose to tail. It will be well worth the cost.

Good luck and e``njoy the adventure!

sounds like something to avoid. either get a diesel pusher or a regular gas model. motorhomes can be hard to get fixed even if they aren't something that had low production. Dave

Hi,

I am one of about a half dozen Winnebago gas pusher owners on this site.

The house part of the coach is absolutely brilliant with very little trouble. Have had some issues with the brakes but got them worked out. I now use a local Cummins for all my chassis/engine work.

I drove a 2004 f53 before this for 3 years and the rear engine Winnebago is head and shoulders a better ride. I really like the Alisson Transmission.

Juat make sure to get a seperate house and chassis inspection.
