This is why we've always had AAA- I don't think there have been very many years when they've made any money on us.

One tow or tire change per year, not to mention breakdowns, and you've paid for your membership.

The first year I got AAA I got it for my girlfriend at the time and myself so we had 4 each to use and we used it at least 7 if not 8 times between 3-4 tows and lock outs. I've never ever lost money with a AAA membership, but now that I have the RV I think I will be switching to coach-net.

Great looking rig!
I love the boxy shape of the older MH's.

And here's my favorite of your interior pictures.........

The microwave completely covering the stovetop cracked me up Click image for larger version

Was it advertised as "Stove's never been used"?
Looks like my husband's dream rig...
Except he'd probably cover the sink, too!
Where else would the bigscreen TV go?

Flat screens go nice just over head of the cockpit area!!!


AAA has camper towing as well for I believe an extra 80 a year. Covers trailers and such as well...

I was told the stove hadn't been used much by the previous owners....I hope it still works.

I'm sure the stove works just as long as your gas system is good. Not sure about your tanks but mine had the old 30 lb bottle set up and they would no longer fill them. So I scrapped them and if I install a new system I'm thinking on board tank in the tank compartment.

Many don't use the stove because of the heat and lack of room. We always cooked outside with the pop up just because of those reasons. Plus it adds to the roughing it style...

Well it's only been sitting 3-4 years and has propane in it so I'm hoping they will fill the tank I have.

If the propane tank is the type that is bolted to the MH frame, there is no expiration, they will fill it.
As far as the stove microwave combo, I believe they call that a bachelors stove.

Well, I think that a truly dedicated Bachelor Stove Person would just jerk that ol' gas stove out of there and put in more Beverage Cooling Capacity....
And pass that useless stove along...at a very low price...given it probably may not work maybe...to a good home...
In my trailer!

Well I like to cook so the stove and oven working would be a big plus for me and as far as room for more crisp refreshing beverages I have a 12v Colman cooler from my trucking days so I'll always have a cold one ready when I pull into camp

I've seen some reasonably priced used stoves on my local Sacramento CL

A man that likes to cook...a cool old motor home...a cute dog...unless I miss my guess, you'll have to change your "Guy an' a dog" handle before too long!
Guess I'll keep looking for a "new" stove! I'm probably just dreaming anyway- I'm not even sure I could cram a full size stove in my rig. My trailer's so small it'd just about fit in the compartment you let your dog hang out in...and there'd still be room for the dog!

Francesca

P.S.
You might blow out the burner tubes before you try the stove- they tend to grow spider nests when they've been idle for awhile.

Well it would be nice to meet a girl that wants to travel.
I was talking about a use RV stove. Find someone that is parting out an RV of any kind.
