What about a Winnebago Lesharo?

"The *original engine was under powered, so alot of owners converted to Chrysler/Dodge 4 bangers and even the 6 bangers. Over all. They are easy to drive and park."

I came across the Lesharo model. Built between 1985 and 1992, sleeps 4 and at 20 feet long. Seems like an easy thing to park and the Mpg is very good (10.9 L/100km for diesel and 15 L/100km for gas), so about the same as my jeep. I saw that there is several people who converted the French Renault engine to a Dodge caravan engine to get more power, parts availability and reliability.Anyone has comments on this model?See More

"That's the spirit! If only everyone was like you, there would be a lot less RVs getting thrown away. I like how you removed the walls with the metal saw blade and I will remember it next time I come across a similar situation."

First actual visit of an "eyebrow" Winnebago

Yesterday morning at 4h55 am, me and a co-driver left Montreal to travel 5h15 hours to get to see a first MH.

Daniel Long was very helpful in doing the initial assessment of the RV and although it might be far, the picture he sent seems to indicate the unit has potential. I made several research on the particular unit that we…See More
