What Was the Sticker Price?

We have an 04 Ultimate Freedom we bought used, of course, not too long ago.
It is a beautiful and luxurious coach and we like it. Almost everywhere we go people comment on it, and someone will invariably ask "How much did it cost new?"
I can only guess. Does anyone know how to find the original sticker price?

Sir,
Some original owners keep better records than others. Our manuals, paper work, service records and more, came with original build sheet. It contains what is either the dealer asking price or, the MSRP, not sure which one at the bottom. I do know that we certainly could never afford what's on the bottom of that sheet.

Call Winnebago's customer service. They will email you the original MSRP window sticker.

Not that this will help you, but if you have washington state registration, the original purchase price is always shown in the value/code box. This is the exact price that the unit sold for the first time it was purchased. It was not to long ago that us washintonians had to pay HUGE for our vehicle licensing, based on the value of the vehicle! I am the 2nd owner of our coach, and it shows the purchase price as $168,384 in august of 2002. The original owner was probably dropping 8 or 9 hundred a year in registration fees!

Just bought one

I just purchased a 2004 Ultimate Freedom, KD model, with Hurricane Heating, and from what I have read every bell and whistle. I purchased from the original owner, and it had 13.6k miles on it. I just drove across the country in it so now 16.8k miles....absolutely a great machine in every way. The original owner is a friend of mine and was very meticulous. I have a receipt for 295k for the original price. So far i have had to replace both TV's (Not digital ready) and I plan on updating most of the plumbing fixtures. For a coach that weighs roughly 48,000 lbs it sure drove wonderfully, especially with the 400hp cummings....no problem doing 75 on I 70.....And got 8.2 mpg coming across. I plan to tow a 20' enclosed trailer with my BMW in it. I did put all new tires on it before I left and also had the Generator Stator rebuilt as those were the two things wrong with it....about 6k in repairs.

Just fyi, your GVWR is actually 34,200 lbs and the GCWR is 44,200 lbs, according to the 2004 Ultimate Freedom brochure. It does indeed look like a nice coach.

We had a '98 Santara 35' MH, sticker was about $98,000, after two years the license fee was $2,400!! here in WA
Then they had a referendum and the license went down to $35.00 until they added weight fees in.
Right now we pay about $135 a year for tags on a 10 year old DSDP, sticker was $211,600.

Congrats on snatching up a great coach!! It has definitely been under-utilized ...I recommend you enjoy correcting that oversight Based on my memory (and calculating what your friend paid) the original sticker was likely somewhere in the $365-$375 range.

I would be interested in seeing pics of the TV conversions. I have just replaced the front TV in my 2003 UA, and have not finished the woodwork part of the job. My cabinet is totally filled side to side, but I need to fill the gap at top and bottom ...I have space to keep the surround sound speaker at the top at original. The shape of your woodwork is probably very similar if not the same.

Thanks

CB, Thanks I do see the GVWR and GCWR in the manual. I was going to run it across a scale at some point but they all seemed to be in use.

AFChap, here is an attached pic of what I have done. I still am trying to get the stain to match, but if not I am thinking of going with a very dark, almost black stain....should look OK and I like the contrast. I founnd a Samsung 37" LED Tv fit perfectly. I use a swivel mount that extends out and turns to either side....got it at Costco, and drilled the mounting bracket, 4 bolts and then measured and mounted the TV. I tightened all the allen screws and it is very tight in there. After taking it down the road I do not have to strap it because it is tight. Here is an attached pic.

I am considering black trim top and bottom for mine too ...haven't settled it yet as the rig is in for service on the ac/heat pump since last week.

The swivel mount I bought and tailored works really good. If I need to get behind the TV for anything, it extends out about 18" and gives me easy access to the HDMI, Audio Out etc.... Works really slick. In the bedroom I got another LED TV and it doesn't fill the hole, but it is actually a bigger screen. I used velcro on the base front and back and it holds great also.

You could have taken out one of the couches, and put in a entertainment center. Watching a 46" TV straight across from you. Is much better then having to turn your neck to watch one.
