I have been looking for a classic Winnebago brave 18-20 foot and I found one within an hour of me. It appears to be a d-18 model with the bathroom across the rear, which is exactly what I was looking for.
1973 Winnebago "Minnie Winnie" - Classic!
I talked to the owner today and he said it needs carb work and the roof leaks around the AC. He said it runs and drives but it definitely needs work. I have heard that the roof leak is common in these older winnies with AC because of the weight of the air conditioner on the wood roof.
I was wondering what you guys think of this winnie. I don't want to get in too deep as I do have a limited budget but I do plan on doing the work myself. I already want to refinish the interior anyway so I could strip it down to the floor and reinforce/replace the wood in the roof if anything has been damaged due to leakage. My brother and I want to rebuild/modify/update it as a project and we are both pretty handy and mechanically inclined guys.
Just seeing what the general consensus is about these old winnies and fixing them up on a budget.
Thanks for the help and input!
