Happy Camper Winnebago by Ringbrothers

It’s through the American spirit of exploration that recreational vehicles continue to prove their worth year after year. And what began decades ago with the Winnebago has now blossomed into some full-on home away from homes, suited for on-the-road living that would make Kerouac himself proud of how far we’ve come. So in the spirit of such exploration, the good folk over at Ringbrothers decided to trick out this 1972 Winnebago Brave for the better.

To get started with their creative undertaking, they had to replace the old engine. In its place, they happily decided upon a Wegner Motorsports LS 408 supercharged V8 that pushes out a whopping 900 horsepower, hitting 50mph in three seconds. It’s all managed through a GM 4L80 automatic transmission making this home on wheels one of the fastest around. The perks don’t stop under the hood either; the real magic lies in the RV’s interior. Upon entry, you’ll find a slew of collector’s items and a design that’s a time warp in itself. Neon signs, color light bulbs, a popcorn machine, a boat engine, bar, saxophone, and inscriptions adorn the walls of this Winnebago. They also hooked it up with a flat screen TV above the RV’s windshield and installed some transparent glass in between the front seat so passengers can admire that supercharger at work. Unfortunately, it’s already been sold to one very lucky customer.
