In over my head with old Winnebago

Purchased this beast and am trying to figure it out. Was told it is a 1975, but from all I can tell (based on online pics) it is a 1974 Brave. Gearshift is to the left of steering wheel.
Can someone help me find an owners manual?
Specifically looking for Ebrake information at the moment, but have many questions.

Winnebago is quite good at supplying information. At the top of the Winnebago forum is a "sticky" post(means it stays at the top) with links to owners manuals, service manuals, wiring diagrams, etc.
The links are drill-down type, beginning with year of manufacture.

Is it on a Dodge chassis? Find a manual for that year Dodge truck and it will tell you about the driving portion of the RV. For all the other systems, if you use Google and search for the make and model of each component, you'll likely find owners, service, parts manuals.

Thanks!
The link to older online manuals is a dead one.
I found the second sticky with an email address so will give that a try.

I believe it is a Dodge chassis.
I have information with three different years! 1973 to 1975.
Two simply list it as a Winnebago motorhome, the other as a Dodge Fargo.
I haven't had much success with Googling.
Based on photos, I'm guessing it is a 1974 D19.
Having some severe buyer's regret.

The oldest manuals on the Winnebago website only go back to 1981.

Winnebago Industries Operator Manuals

I believe most Winnies of that era had either the Dodge 318 of 360 V8 engines. Parts still available.

440's were installed in some of the Winnebagos of that era too. We had a '75 Indian back in the day. My parents bought it brand new. It was handed down through the years. I owned it from about 1980 to 1990. My niece and her husband own it now. It has about 60,000 miles and still goes camping a few times a year.

It had a 440 with the Torqueflite 727 and a Dana 80 rear axle. Dual exhaust. The thing ripped.
