Hello, I'm looking at purchasing a 2006 Winnebago that has been garage kept since 2006. I plan on replacing the battery and tires and also a complete inspection. I want to get some pros cons.

Thanks, Vic

When we purchased an older, little used motorhome, we had our mechanic change all the belts, hoses, fluids and filters. Also changed the batteries (house and chassis), all the tires, which had 8,000 miles on them but were 8 years old. We were taking it to Alaska. The mechanic did not change the fuel filter/pump because they were in the tank and would necessitate dropping the driveshaft. Second trip out on a shakedown cruise, the fuel pump failed so ended up getting that changed out on the road. That was because it had been sitting for at least six years without any gas treatment in the tank. She ran to Alaska and back with nary a hiccup. Now my DH has passed and I am in this motorhome on my own adventure. She is still running great.

On that one be sure to reseal the roof - the thin sheet of fiberglass is set in a grove then sealed in with a bead of sealant. Make sure that's in good shape.

Winnie Roof Sealing Tip

The other part is make sure the windshield is well sealed. Being garage kept you should be good regardless but Winnies are known to rust around the windshield frame.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.
