The brow is back in new ‘retro’ Winnebago motorhomes

LAS VEGAS — In the late ’60s and ’70s, there was no mistaking a Winnebago motorhome. The Flying W and iconic “eyebrow” design were cutting paths to fun and adventure from coast to coast. It was the coach that made America fall in love with motorhomes, the company noted from the stage at its annual Dealer Days event.

Well, it’s time to fall in love again. The new Brave breathes new life in to the legendary design, giving people the opportunity to relive their childhood memories with the next generation of young motorhome enthusiasts.

Beyond appearance, the new Brave is loaded with today’s best features and offered in two versatile floorplans fit for weekend getaways or extended trips. While buyers won’t find one for the $4,000 price of the original, it’s priced to fit within a growing family’s budget.

Highlights of the new ‘retro’ motorhome include:

  • All-new retro design with two floorplans — 26A and 27B

26A floorplan

The 26A is all about multi-purposing for maximum utility and for maximum floor space. It features a unique multifunctional Flex Bed module that offers a comfortable sofa/bed that flips up against the wall to provide open floor space for additional cargo storage. It the space offers a unique powered table that flips up to provide a large 22.25-by-64-inch serving table or work space. The sofa must be flipped up against the wall to access the powered table.

In addition, there are six tie-down positions located beneath the sofa for securing cargo. A lounge chair with swivel/slide/recline features and three-point seat belt is another multipurpose feature strategically located to provide additional seating by the dinette for a convenient conversation area along with the front cab seats that swivel toward the rear of the coach with a removable pedestal table positioned in between.

The forward-facing dinette seat also has three-point seat belts and tether anchors to securely fasten child seats. A powered StudioLoft bed is also available in the front cab area, while a rear corner queen bed is provided along with an additional StudioLoft bed available above it.

  1. PRICE FOR THE “NEW (2014) 26A RETRO” WINNEBAGO $$$$$_________________????? ((*j*))

  2. I have ordered 5 and so far I am told the MSRP should be under 100k

    • AHOY’ JOSHUA WOOD CAPT. BILLY HERE ~~THANK YOU FOR GIVING A LOOK ! ~~~IN HE 60′S WHEN THE
      SAME UNIT SHOWED-UP THE STOCK WENT THROUGH THE ROOF. LOOKING BACK I MISSED THE 1M FOR THE RV.

    • Insane money for the size and features. Not to mention the grotesque exterior (and interior) color schemes! The new retro Camaros, Mustangs, Challengers etc., great! This thing looks like an ice cream truck! And you want 100k for it?!?! You been taking lsd? (yet another retro thing to do)!

  3. Are they going back to 3 speed transmission and Dodge Engines too?

  4. At around $95,000, isn’t this just an overpriced Vista?

  5. Bravo to Winnebago for not following the herd. With 25 or 30 other Winnebago motor home brands from which to choose, it’s great to see them launch this totally cool retro styled coach. I went though one in Hershey and fell in love. The attention to detail is outstanding, along with the cutting edge style and features such as sliding overhead cabinet doors, a sliding GPS, pedestal table by the driver/passenger seats, and that state of the art loft bed.

    Great job Winnebago – you are truly an American Icon!
