Our RV is a 36' fifth wheel, a 2007 Forest River Sandpiper 315BHT that we've customized to make it more comfortable and suitable for fulltiming. (And prettier.)
We (and the RV) are currently located in Austin, Texas.
This RV was perfect for our needs because it has a separate room in the back for our teenage son, with a door that closes. That was the only way to get him on board with the RV plan. We're selling it because we've learned that the nomadic life isn't for us, at least not right now.
We are the second owners. The first owners bought it in 2006, took it for one or two family vacations per year, and stored it in a barn when they weren't using it. They hardly used it at all. We bought it from them in October 2012.
We bought it for $24,200. We've lived in it for 5 months, and also made some repairs and improvements.
So we're asking for $22,900.
We've put it through its paces, shaken some things loose, and made several improvements and repairs. There are a couple of things we haven't fixed yet - a slipped door hinge and a crack in one of the gray tanks. We can either get them fixed before you buy it or knock the price down a bit for you - whichever you prefer. Since we never fill our gray tank up higher than half full, and the crack is in the top half of the tank, it doesn't actually cause problems for us.
Repairs we've made:
We fixed a leaky skylight (with duct tape)
We fixed the outside shower compartment (also with duct tape)
We had a professional fix the motor that raises and lowers the front stabilizers. (Some schmo in the past had apparently jury-rigged it, and it didn't hold.)
We had a professional reseal the front seals. They weren't leaking or anything, but insurance was paying for it, so we asked him to reseal them just to be on the safe side.
We fixed a propane leak by replacing the LP gas regulator with a new one. So you won't need to worry about that!
Nice, bright trim and valances to replace the butt-ugly dark gray and brown
Cup holders. Cup holders EVERYWHERE.
Customized shelving for the pantry. If you like it, we'll leave it in for you.
Oxytonic shower head - makes showering great, instead of feeling like someone is gently drooling on you
We've modified the bunkhouse to have more room to play, and by play we mean video games on a big-screen TV.
New sewer connections and a 20' sewer hose extender, useful for those campsites where the sewer hookup is far from your hookups.
Various gadgets useful for fulltiming, like a water filter, water pressure regulator, water pressure gauge, etc. We'll happily throw those in as well.
Ask us anything. Unlike a dealer, we will tell you the truth.
We'll also be happy to spend a few hours teaching you everything we've learned about living in this RV.
We'll show you the duct tape (which works, but isn't pretty) instead of papering over it (which is pretty, but doesn't work.) We want you to feel safe living in this RV with your family, so give me a call or email me, and we can talk.
