Hi I am new to RVing bought myself a vintage


I am Christine. I am from Montana. I started looking for an affordable trailer and one popped up that read 1980's Unknown. It was in my price range and the owner dropped the price $500 when I asked when he would take for it. It looked in fairly good shape for being 30 years old so I took it. Well I did my homework and found out it was actually 52 years old. I was excited to find a vintage camper in the shape it is in. There is some old water damage I will have to fix and it needs a new toilet. I need to replace the water tank and upgrade to a water pump system. I wasn't able to get the manuals for my trailer but Winnebago was kind enough to send me plans and a digitalized manual from a younger trailer.

I can't wait to start!

Welcome to Winnie Owners, we are glad you joined us.

When you have the time, completing a signature with the year make and model for your RV can help others to help you if and when you need it. And you can do that here;

It would be fun to see some photos when you have time. Also, you probably know this, but there are clubs and forums devoted to vintage trailers that would be good to check out, including:

Vintage RV's - iRV2 Forums
Home | Vintage Trailer Talk

Here in northern California there are vintage trailer shows, rallies, etc.

Have fun.
