Winnebago Brave gets completely new interior!
This is a 1972 Winnebago Brave motorhome, however automotive 'pimps; the Ringbrothers gave it an entirely new look for the SEMA event which is to be held at Las Vegas Convention Center as from 2 November 2016.
The engine has been replaced by a Wegner Motorsports LS 408 supercharged V-8, pushing out 900 horsepower. The transmission is a General Motors 4L80 automatic, which sends the torque to a rear end from a 2005 Ford F-550.
Ringbrothers kept exterior modifications to a minimum, opting not to restore or repaint the body. Instead, they slapped on a couple of sponsor decals. From the outside the Winnebago looks as though it is from the 1970s.
Inside however one could consider that they went crazy. The metal is covered in a minty green paint, and the gauges are all new. There’s a glass engine cover, so anyone curious enough can actually see the supercharger.
All of the seats are done in leather, accompanied by a makeshift bar at the rear. There’s a boat engine hanging off the wall and a flat-screen TV over the windscreen. A couple of custom neon lights adorn the cabin, making it look like a beachside club.
It will appear to some but I am sure most of us would prefer the traditional look for our motorhomes, although maybe the Ringbrothers engine!
