Why consider this unique class A motorhome? In addition to the technical specs listed with the ad, allow me to go over the finer points of enjoying this rig. No slides? That's right, it is one of the few diesel pushers without slides. We looked for two years to find one! In our experience we found the rig to be roomy enough without them (101" wide body). If you stop for lunch, rest area, or to do something while driving (restroom, prepare lunch, work at dinette with We Boost) it is roomy all of the time. No threading the needle to squeeze down the crowded passageway. Secondly, no worries about dust, rain, infiltration, wind whistle or seal replacement. Not to mention the added weight and costs to maintain. We've witnessed countless people with the slide not going out or worse yet, not going in as they were ready to leave, surprise! 113,700 miles? Yes, it is a diesel engine and Allison transmission. According to Prosourcediesel.com, a well maintained Cummins engine can go between 350,000 to 500,000 miles. This is a well maintain vehicle. A gas engine/transmission may be toast with that. Diesel engines are designed for high mileage use. Travel into Mexico? This 5.9 Cummins will run on any diesel fuel. Something we really love about the rear engine is the absence of noise and heat in the cab while driving! The air ride suspension feels like a tour bus. This 31' motorhome fits into most campsites. With it's short wheelbase and overall length we've fit into most National Parks and Forest Service campsites without issue. We go where most of the "big rigs" can't. With the water restricting faucets we can boondock/disperse camp for a very long time. It also has a transfer water pump so you can fill containers and easily transfer into the water tank! The solar/inverter set up, catalytic heater and vent driven fans keeps things nice without a/c. The A/C can be run by the propane Onan generator, but we didn't need it much. The awnings have made a huge difference when sunny or rainy. Miles per gallon? We drive slower by choice, at 55-60 mph not towing we can get 12 mpg, towing 9.8 average (flat). That saves $$$! We and our guests really enjoy the bright and bold colors while enjoying the indoors. We've had countless compliments on the clean exterior paint scheme as well. As you can see from the repairs and upgrades, this isn't a project motorhome, it is ready for travel now. We are looking for the right new owner to enjoy "Solmate" as much as we have. Thanks for checking out this atypical travel vehicle. Happy Trails
