New A.C.E.

We bit the bullet and decided to buy a new motorhome. Our 1991 Holiday Rambler Alumalite. Will be retired to a new home, hint hint! First and foremost we were looking for something affordable for us. Our second criteria was we did not want luxurious but practical then dependable. We love the Alpine lakes, USFS campgrounds and try our best to avoid the private luxurious RV parks. We live in a resort 4 season community so we love our home but we also love the west including Alberta and BC. This we will do, further and longer.

We bought the 27.1 model, 28', 2014 Ford V10. It has a single slide for kitchen and bedroom. It has a king size bed, ample interior storage and a queen bed which electrically lowers above the captains chairs for the grand kids. Levelors, I am ready for levelors and the powered awning. It does not have the huge outside storage of some of the longer models but we can work around that. The biggest problem is our inflatable pontoon boat. I think I will have my welder elongate the scooter carrier slightly and we can put it on that.

No inverter, which is good. I can do that better than the factory and it will be what we need. House batteries are stored in the basement, lots of room for larger batteries and an inverter. Pick up the 19th.
