She's a Safari Trek Diesel Class A Motorhome. 64,796 Miles. 28' total length and she's been babied her entire life! The Trek is built on a GM/Workhorse P30 chassis and is powered by a very strong and tow capable 6.5L Diesel engine mated to a Allison automatic transmission. She gets about 12 to 15 MPG, depending on wind, towing, and hills! The coach has disk brakes, Michelin XL 19.5" 225/70 tires, Dually in rear, and a towing hitch. She has a full sized awning. This is the Pathmaker Edition, so she has a Solar Panel and Leveling Jacks.

She's a fully loaded Class A RV with all the amenities of a larger Diesel Pusher but the convenience and drive-ability of a shorter coach. There's a Hide-away bed in the ceiling: it's a Electro-Magic which drops down to a full sized Queen bed. In the morning, when you get up, it disappears, you just hit a switch and up, up and away she goes! Why pull the weight and length of an extra Bedroom around? I went to Costco and bought a New Flat Screen LED TV and a New DVD player last year. I also installed A New High Profile Toilet when the New Vinyl Plank Floor went into the bathroom. Solid hardwood cabinetry in the kitchen, radius dual-pane windows throughout, Brand New automatic electric steps, an automatic three-point hydraulic leveling system, and ducted furnace with new Circuit Board and thermostat, just serviced air conditioning systems, including Roof and Dash. The compressor in the Dash AC is Brand New. There's also a very nice stereo with New Marine quality speakers (4 of them) in the ceiling.

The exterior of my Trek is in great condition. The Aircraft-Grade Aluminum skin is smooth and without damage, except a minor scratch about 6 inches on the drivers side. The paint is in great condition. There is no sun fading on the blue, unlike a lot of fiber-glassed RV's, due to its aluminum skin. I had all the blue up top all around the coach re-painted, as well as the front bumper. The roof and seams have been resealed and does not leak a drop nor do the windows.

The high-end wood cabinetry offers an amazing amount of storage space, including two banks of drawers, under-storage cabinets, several cabinets for dishes, multiple cabinets for your pantry, and under-sink storage shelves for cleaning supplies. Everything about the Trek says quality. That's probably why they were bought out by Monaco. The cabinetry throughout the coach is made of solid Alder wood. We just oiled and polished all of these lovely cabinets...wow, that took awhile. Wife loves them!

The built-in three-burner stove top features automatic spark ignition. A combination microwave/convection oven (again, a feature found only in high-end coaches) allows you to grill hamburgers, do a roast, as well as heat up frozen dinners or leftovers. A Fantastic Fan in the ceiling and a vented hood above the stove ensure rapid venting. The 6 cubic foot NorCold refrigerator and freezer hold a large amount of food and will automatically select the power source for you.

There's a SOLAR panel on the roof and a solar center to run and charge iPhones, Tablets, Laptops and even run the TV without running the generator. The solar panel also keeps the coach batteries in top operating condition. You can dry camp just like this or use the generator, depending if you're in a Wal-Mart parking lot, or out in the boonies somewhere.

The HUGE rear bathroom is separated from the main room by a sliding hardwood door. The bathroom contains LOTS of closet and cabinet storage for clothing, linens, or any supplies, as well as a built-in medicine chest. There are huge wardrobe closets with extensive room for hanging clothes.

The Trek has lots of basement storage beneath the floor in lighted bays. The street side bays contain an Onan 3600 kilowatt LP generator (50 hours) and the LP Tank, and Extra storage. The Drivers side include hookups for electrical, fresh water and waste water and a Huge storage bay. The rear storage compartment stores your sewer hose and other essentials. The electrical system includes a Huge 2000 watt inverter, which combines with the Solar Panel for using 110 volt appliances from the 12-volt batteries.

One of the high-end features of the Trek is the home-run style manifold for the fresh-water system. Each outlet has a separate shutoff valve for both the hot and cold water lines. If a leak should develop in any faucet, you can close off just that tap and keep the rest of the system working until you can repair the leak. This has never happened to us, but it was nice to know it was there.

The coach has a 80 gallons tank of fresh water. This is a huge capacity for a 28-foot RV, and it makes the Trek an excellent rig for dry camping. The waste tanks are comparably sized, with 40 gallons for grey water and 40 gallons for black. Got all the books and manuals and maintenance records (important for a diesel).

While the innovations in floor plan and the amount of luxury high-end features in all Safari Treks are truly amazing, the coach wasn't known for having exceptional handling. While many Safari Trek owners are content to drive their Treks just as they are, another contingent of owners like myself wants to make their Treks more stable, safe, and easy to drive as possible. Our Trek has all the suspension modifications, including Super Steer, Safe-T-Plus, an upgraded Front stabilizer bar, and Brand New Front Air Bags. In total, there are probably thousands worth of suspension modifications on my RV, making it exceptionally stable and enjoyable to drive. Safe-T-Plus system stabilization system dampens out unnecessary movements in the steering and reduces the amount of correction necessary to keep the coach tracking straight. It also increases safety in the event of a blowout because it will help keep the coach moving in a straight line rather than swerving off the road. Super Steer Bell Cranks transmit the steering inputs to the wheels, and they are an enhancement over the stock ones shipped with the Trek. Upgraded Heavy Duty Anti-Sway Bars. Having the coach sway back and forth can make for some white-knuckle driving, especially when there are cross winds to contend with. These beefed-up bars do an excellent job of keeping the RV stable. The front Air Bags were shredded, literally, and I didn't even know it, other than noticing a slight sag in the front end. But I sure do notice the improvement in ride with the new ones!

The net product of these modifications was a dramatic improvement in the stability and handling of the coach. It is now a pleasure to drive and a much safer vehicle than when it was originally shipped. It drives straight and true, with very little input from the steering wheel, and it's much less affected by wind.

So, with all of my upgrades and staying current on all maintenance issues, I hope you see the value in my asking price. If you're looking for some cheaper "FIXER", or a "project", they are out there...just keep looking. BUT be prepared to get your hands dirty and pocket book emptied. A new Diesel engine alone for one of these will cost you about $10,000, costly mistake if it wasn't maintained properly and you don't know what to look for. Mine is Solid, NO Leaks, and Runs Strong...She's a Keeper! We would not be parting with her at all, but our situation has changed. Best of Luck to you!
