Winnebago tried to emulate the appearance of the GMC
(out of production now)

I saw the Winnebago Spectrum 2000 models when they first were produced at Forest City. We were there in 1988 or1989 and felt at home with our Birchaven due to the presence of the then Advanced Rear engined Spectrum. It looked just like a GMC except for the rear engine cooling vents. Our GMC was painted Silver and Charcol Silver, while parked in the Visitor Center many approached us thinking ours was a '23 foot mini version. Spectrum was 32 foot. Winnebago lost interest in this Ford 460ci rear engined GMC lookalike and recalled all produced . They were later sold by I think LazyDaze RV, only about 96 were produced, they were done in by Cooling and Brake problems.   (Mark)

NEWS FLASH   The Spectrum is still alive, being reincarnated by Special Interest Vehicles. They are replacing the engine with a Ford Triton V-10. You should see the beautiful and graphical paint jobs they are getting.   (Paul Bartz)
