It’s that time of year again, our annual 2 to 3-week vacation. Aside from an occasional long weekend trip, we look forward to our annual camping trip every year. We load up our 36’ RV with clothes, food, and stuff, hook up the car, and hit the road. We don’t skimp in what we take along. To be truthful it’s always more than we need but we have all that extra storage in the basement—what we call the pass through storage under the RV.
In the 10 years we’ve owned this RV, we’ve explored and enjoyed various parts of the country—tea plantation in Charleston, SC; Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, NM; the Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX; light houses along the Great Lakes; and the fall foliage in New England, to name a few. Along with the memories, we’ve collected magnets from all of the places we’ve visited and put them on the refrigerator (you can see them in the picture) to spark those wonderful memories—sorry the magnets aren’t included in the purchase. We’ve enjoyed traveling around the country and making the RV our home during that time. With the 3 slides, the RV feels like home with all that space. We even have a second TV in the back bedroom when we disagree on what to watch when we’ve settled in for the evening. And settling in at a campground, it relatively easy—park it, level it (automatically), hook up the water, electricity, sewer, and cable (or we can use a digital antenna if cable isn’t available), and then put out the slides. We are ready to relax on our couch, lounge chairs (one recliner and 1 with stool), or the other available seating to enjoy our evening and hopefully get something to eat. With the stove, convection microwave, and 4-door refrigerator we can cook good meals and eat around our free-standing table. Although I must admit, we tend to eat out a number of evenings—hey it’s vacation who wants to cook. But the space and capabilities are there when we get the urge to cook. When it’s time to sleep for the evening, we have the back bedroom with a queen bed and a couch in the living room that folds out into a full size (and very comfortable) bed. Getting ready in the morning does take a little timing since we have 1 bathroom but fortunately the toilet and a sink are in a separate room from the shower. Plus, we have an extra sink in the back bedroom. So it works out nicely unless someone takes too long in the shower because they’re enjoying the hot water and the sky light.
So, with all that said you’re asking why are we selling our RV. The answer is age. Not the age of the RV but the age of the driver. If we were 10 years younger, this add wouldn’t exist. But caring and driving an RV is a little more than we can handle at this stage in our life. So sadly, we’re listing the RV for sale.
To make sure our RV gets to a good home, let us tell you a little more about it. It’s a smooth drive and has good power with the diesel engine. It has a generator and works great when you’re dry camping such as we did at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta right on the balloon grounds—it was awesome. It has awnings you can put out when you’re settled in and want to keep the sun out. But the air conditioning in the motor home—2 units front and back—works great as does the heat. FYI if you only have 30 amps at a campground, you can’t run both units. If you want to relax and watch TV it has a 32” TV in the front and a 26”TV in the back. Both can run on cable or digital antenna. Plus there is a DVD player. It comes with a host of manuals for all of the various systems in the RV. And here are more specifics:
• 360 Cummins with Allison transmission
• Freightliner Chassis
• Onan generator
• 2 slides on drive’s side--super living room and bedroom—and 1 slide on passenger slide for the kitchen area. Giving the great room a lot of space.

• Electric Patio and Door Awning
• Xantrex Inverter
• Back Up & Sideview Cameras
