Hi all, new here but have been lurking!
I'm considering purchasing a 1983 22.8' Winnie Brave. It's in really good shape. 75000 miles, everything works. 454 engine. A couple of things are stumping me though, maybe someone can help?
From the manual, it says it takes 7.50 x 16 tires. Those seem to be kind of hard to find. Are there other options if it still has the original rims? Also, how hard is it to find chassis/engine parts for this? I've read here that the 454 runs really hot and has overheating problems, is that true for all, or just some?
Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for the replies!
It's in good shape, but I know I'd still have to sink some cash into it for my piece of mind. It's only on the second owner, been stored under cover most of it's life, and they're only asking $2500. I think I could get them down to 1800-2000 pretty easily. They said the first owner didn't use it much, but they use it a few times a year, but have to move and are going to upgrade when they get settled in to their new situation.
All in all it sounds like an ideal situation, and your feedback on parts, etc. helps set my mind at ease. I'm not a big fan of the floorplan, and I've had my mind set on a Class C, but the length is right and it's hard to beat the shape its in for the price they want. We'll see what happens.
