Please contact by email at

My family received this RV as a donation to our non-profit ministry organization in May of 2007 from a local friend.

Great Family Vehicle

We traveled with our two children for 10 weeks the summer of 2007 and became intimately acquainted with every detail of this RV and, though we sell it to you AS IS, we are confident of its excellent working condition. We think you will find this unit to be in amazing condition--like none on the market--for it's model year.

(The rear window was replaced (after a rock hit it)and the whole window resealed to prevent leaks.)

Updated in June 2007

Though it was in working order, we immediately began to update the unit and since that time we have replaced, tuned, repaired, refinished, etc. most everything in the RV. As pictured, the coach has original A&E Imperial 8000 awnings: three on the driver's side and main awning on the passenger side.

We are selling it to buy a newer unit because our experience was so good this summer we have decided to do it again...and again.


A new Everpure water purification system was installed in 2005 and the new owner repaired some plumbing joints and new copper line to filtered water tap at kitchen sink, new fixture at kitchen sink, and replaced many old plumbing joints and installed a brand new water pump.
