Default Winnebago Elandan Club

We currently have 3 members who have Winnebago Elandans, which have been completely restored to new condition. These were very unusual motorhomes and one of the best built of all times. Our club is looking for new members, and also anyone selling parts or whole Elandans.

Default elandan club

I just purchased a 1987 winnebago Elandan 34' class A motorhome. We are located in southern California.

I found this one in Fresno California. It was owned by a rancher in Fresno and kept inside a barn when not in use. Total miles is 61,000.

It is excellent both inside and outside.

I do have questions and some things that need to be looked at. It would be great to communicate with other owners that have far more experience than I.

I look forward to you reply

Jack Evans

I just picked up an Itasca WIndcruiser. Is that close enough to be a member? Same thing just under the Itasca name.

New member here also. I purchased a 1990 Elandan 32' last year. Everything needed some TLC. Got everything working and learned a lot along the way.
Just about everything is showing its age, and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions in the future.

Default 85 Elandan 31

Hi all I have about completed all renovations on my 85 Elandan. I was lucky in that the previous owner bought tons of parts and upgrades for this RV but he never had time to complete them. This Elandan is in excellent condition and everything works now and has many electronic upgrades that I added including GPS nav, 4 color camera security system, 36" flatscreen TV, hidden desktop computer w/ 2 23" monitors, backup camera, 2-195 watt solar panels with charge monitor and 3000w inverter, 4 deep cycle batteries, tire monitoring system, 3000w surround sound stereo Teac system, Satellite system and some other stuff. ummm... I am a gadget junkie by the way! lol
A couple things I am unsure about as I do not have any manuals for this RV and this is my first RV....
1- In the rear, there are two single beds...under the driver side bed is the fresh water tank...under the passenger side bed there is a elec. hot water tank, a heater system(controlled by hot water from the engine I believe) and a tank the same size as the fresh water tank except this one has insulation all around it. I am not sure how the bedroom heater system works. It has two is a push pull knob that actuates a valve on a hose. the other control is a click turn knob and I have not figured how this system works. Nothing seems to happen when i turn the control knob. And What is the insulated tank for and what does it do?
2- Does anyone know where I can get screens for the crank out windows? I have 3 intact but the rest are missing? Does anyone make these? I can rescreen them if I can find the frames or is there a way to build the frames?
3- Anyone know where I can find the clock electronic board in the control monitor above the stove or a complete monitor panel? It all works except the clock does not advance in time no matter what time I set it at...It just displays that same time.
My last project is going to be to paint the RV
I am finished with the engine and drive train....tune-up replaced the engine, transmission and differentials with synthetic oils... I did that with an old 1980 Scout II and improved mileage by 4 MPG
I live in Austin Tx and am planning my RV's maiden voyage down to Padre Island and boondock on the beach for about a week....can't wait!
Anyways thanks for listening lol and if anyone can help with these items that I described it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Cappy

Just bought a 1980 Elandan. It is in pretty good shape. It has a little water damage on walls due to windows being left open. Tearing the walls out now to replace them. Tearing out the carpet, it is the original.

Default Elandan 1990

Just bought a 1990 Elandan, (what oil is best to use?) It started up, but was idling fast and overheated, with a smelly exhaust. I turned it off, and it back fired for awhile before settling down.

Any advice/tips?
