Times are a Changing - Our Rigs FOR SALE

We have decided to put our Motorhome up for sale. It is a 2009 Fleetwood Discovery 40X. That is the model that has a front kitchen and a mid-ship television. It has three slides and is a pretty roomy rig, I think down in Kerrville a few years back we had thirteen folks inside one rainy evening. Now we were all friends but it still had room for a few more.

We ordered this rig from the factory so it came with all the things we wanted and needed. Unlike many it has both a gas and convection oven, and heat pumps, and a washer/dryer combo. Also a factory installed Satellite Dish on the roof and seeing as how we like to get our Canadian channels we also installed a Motosat dish for Shaw/Star Choice also.

We like to get out where the places are less crowded and enjoy the quiet of the countryside so solar was a must, and we had four extra batteries installed. We had AM Solar install 400 watts of solar generating capacity on the roof along with all the necessary power management equipment. This system has served us well and we are able to do almost everything from computering to TV watching without having to use the onboard 8KW generator.

A couple of years ago we upgraded the blinds from the day/night shades to MCD roller blinds and shades.

The only reason this outfit is for sale is the fact that our needs have changed. Those who follow our blog know that we now have a place in Arizona, and spend a great deal of time traveling and trailriding with our horses, so the motorhome just was not getting used enough. Although we still get it out and about frequently in the summers here in Canada, it is just to nice to take into the back country where we do most of our riding.

Therefore some lucky person is going to be able to get the deal of a lifetime. We are looking to move it to a new home on a pretty short timeframe, so it won't be here long.

Here she is doing what she does best, enjoying time away from the crowds with her solar array making quiet power.
I will just put a bunch of shots here, keeping in mind that these were taken while we were fulltiming. This is an especially clean rig and we have taken good care of it. It just had a complete service and the generator has about 15 hours since its last service. Only about 23,000 miles on the clock also.
