Newbie to R/V life here, hello all!!!

Hello, I am a newbie to the R/V world, just got a "FREE" 86 Winnie Chieftan 27!
It was given to me by an elderly couple in their mid to late 70's,
it is in very good condition, runs beautifully, inside looks near new!
I have big plans for this R/V, glad to be part of this forum.

Greetings FeralCat,
Sounds like a great "Barn Find" to me, but for free too; good for you!
As with any 37-year-old vehicle, please run a full safety check (tires, shocks, brakes, batteries, lights, etc.)
Here is the Brochure for it, and the Owner's Manual.
You do not see both driver's and passenger's front doors on modern Class As; something I believe they should never have omitted.
Welcome to the forum.
