LeSharo HistoryEdit

From 1983 to 1987, the Winnebago LeSharo was available with a 2.1 liter diesel engine from Renault with a 4 speed manual transmission , and later a 2.2 liter turbo version.  Beginning in 1985, a 2.2 liter gasoline engine was introduced, with a 3 speed automatic transmission .  In 1987, a 5 speed manual transmission became available, and in 1989, the fuel injection system changed from a Bosch unit to one by Bendix.  Production ceased in 1992.  In 1994, the LeSharo was reincarnated as the Rialta, this time with a VW drivetrain.

During the production run, the coach interior stayed largely the same, though two interior layouts were available.  There was also an Itasca-branded version called the Phasar, which is identical except for some slight cosmetic differences.

Due to their size, layout, and good fuel economy, these motorhomes enjoy a strong following, with many being converted to use larger GM or Chrysler engines.


LeSharo motorhomes feature a galley with a sink, propane stovetop, and refrigerator, a pull-out bathroom and shower combination, a table with booth seats that converts into a bed, a furnace and air conditioner for the coach, a gas generator, two front-facing seats in the middle of the coach which convert into a bed, and many storage compartments.
