We had such a great time yesterday, talking with the couple who currently owns this motorhome! They were so lovely 🙂 Down-to-earth, genuine, happy folks. They have kept this 2010 vehicle in tip top shape, and I could see and feel the love and care they put into it, the many memories they made with it. They’ve spent their vacation days traveling the country, RV style, by themselves and also with their grandkids, for 17 years! And they’ve owned this particular motorhome for 8.
They gave us a very thorough tour, inside and out (my husband went on the roof too lol), and even took us for a test drive! It was so much fun! We were so impressed by how smooth it feels on the road, and how there was barely any rattling or movement in the cabinets and such. (I’ll explain more in another post why this type of RV/motorhome is different and why we chose it).
We definitely want to buy this! Next steps would be to hire an inspector to look at it and test all the functionality (there is A LOT that goes into how a vehicle like this works – plumbing, power, slide outs, levelling, waste disposal etc; it really is quite amazing). Then we negotiate price and figure out short-term financing (which we will be able to pay off within the next several weeks, once we’ve sold our home and land).
Isn’t it pretty? The cabinets are made of solid wood too – not that flimsy cardboard version, not tacky plastic. Leather seats, including a foot rest for the passenger seat. Blinds and curtains. Sofas and dinette that turn into extra beds. So Much Storage. Huge basement! Off-grid ability. Built-in vacuum cleaner. This thing is waaaayyy fancier than our house, ya’ll! LOL!
(The photo at the end of this reel shows how it looks like inside with the slide-outs packed back in, ie on drive/road mode. There’s still lots of room to walk to the bathroom, kitchen or bedroom during quick stops!)
