2004 Damon Daybreak 3270 35 foot RV
Up for sale is our family’s privately owned 2004 Damon Daybreak 3270.
I am going to go through the RV good, bad and ugly. I very much believe that this is one of the most solid, well kept RV’s on the road and I want to be perfectly up front about everything on it.
We will start with the basics.
The 3270 is a 35 class-A RV. It has the legendary Ford V10 engine and Workhorse chassis. This is an "industrial grade" platform and weighs in at 16,000 pounds before fluids. It has a single electric slide-out and it’s fully equipped from the factory. It has ample sleeping for 6 (queen size master, jacknknife front sofa and convertible table/bed. This is an ALL ALUMINUM body and chassis RV. There is no wood or any sort of composite materials. Full basement storage. 4 point hydraulic leveling jacks. (one touch up, level and brace. one-touch down, and secure)
The original price was $98,250. It is a W-series chassis and shares about 90% of the components with the Winnebago. When you buy parts like interior stuff it’s labeled Winnebago. Finding parts is very simple.
It runs and drives great. This is the Triton V10 gas motor. It has a common 60 gallon upgraded fuel tank that runs both the engine and the Onan Generator.
Fully equipped kitchen. All three of the air conditioner units blow ice cold air. Cummins/ Onan GenSet 5000 generator starts immediately. It will power both AC units and all interior components but be warned -this is a very powerful and thirsty generator. The generator alone was $4500.
NO SMOKING. NO PETS. NO STAINS.
But the best part about this RV? Absolutely EVERYTHING works exactly like it should. When we got it, we dropped it off at the local mechanic and told them to go through everything. Some of the mechanical work we had completed was
Full brake system including the parking brake
Hydraulic Lift system - flushed and Brought up to modern standards
Slides and exterior components aligned, cleaned and lubed
Engine tune-up (filters, plugs, wires etc)
LP system flushed and new valves put in
AC system recharged
New front glass (there was a big crack in the passenger side)
Drive tires replaced
Water heater replaced with an energy efficient system
Fridge and Freezer compressor replaced
Remote tire fill system installed (just makes it easier to fill a low tire)
Air ride airbags replaced on front and rear
Upgraded modern gray and black water holding tanks
Furnace serviced with new filters
70,000 mile service completed (vehicle has 70,290 miles on it)
250-hours generator service
New backup camera.
Brand new main and engine batteries (we always keep them on a solar tender, or hooked up)
The entire shop bill when we got it was $6700.
Essentially all of the mechanical systems were gone through. We bought this anticipating that we would keep it permanently but the opportunity arose to buy a Coach- so all of the energy and money is now our loss and your gain. She runs, drives and feels like an absolute dream.
Brand new televisions front and rear - never used them. Roku and Wifi extender included as well.
It does have a few cosmetic things that I would address.
The front right turn signal is broken. This is the same turn signal as a 99-04 Ford Taurus believe it or not. Just have to order it and replace it.
The awning is not so bueno. There are no holes in it, but it’s definitely sagging. These are not cheap and I wouldn’t recommend changing it out yourself unless you’re very handy and know what you’re doing
The roof is completely water proof but it does have some sagging. This is a Saturday afternoon project and it can be done easily. There are many heat-activated kits that can be done by amateurs or shade tree folks. Again- the roof is perfectly sealed but it does have some sagging near the rear AC.
The carpet could use a deep cleaning or perhaps replacement
That’s really it for the stuff that needs to be done.
The clear coat on some of the panels is flaking. It’s just cosmetic. IF you want to spend the money- budget about $500 for sanding and new clear coat. Normal exterior wear and tear.
If you’re not familiar with this model do some research. They are widely considered on-par with the Winnebagos and very hard to find in “perfect” mechanical condition like this one. This is a get-in-and-drive type RV with no drama. You could pick it up Friday morning and be camping with all systems running by 5.
I have the title in hand. All of the original books and owners manuals are included.
I am located in South Austin, TX. Happy to meet with you via FaceTime.
We are not looking for trades, though if it’s the right deal we may consider it.
