1999 SAFARI TREK 2830 Pathmaker Edition. Gold & White exterior. 7.4L Gas V8. Location Lexington KY

Bought from first owner in 2009 with 51,000 miles and remains a nonsmoking motorhome. Current mileage 121,000. This was to be our last motorhome so, over the years we have done maintenance and upgrades. However, a very nice 2005 Trek became available so the 1999 must be sold. $19,900 OBO

(Original dealer invoice $96,437)

This vehicle is built on the GM P-30 chassis with a 7.4 Electronic fuel injected engine coupled to a 3 speed transmission with overdrive. Overall length is 29’3’’. The basement compartments provide ample storage space with 5 large bays. It has full body paint with clear coat and a Tiger mural in the back. All windows are tinted dual pane. It has an 80 gallon fresh water tank, 40 gallon black water tank and 40 gallon grey water tank.  The interior features an Electro- Majic queen sized bed which drops down over the living area. With the added memory foam, this bed is fabulous! This allows for living space equal to or greater than many 36’ coaches. The kitchen has solid surface countertops and ample storage with Alder hardwood cabinetry throughout. There is wood flooring in the kitchen and bath with carpet at the dining table, living room and driving space. The bathroom has a large corner shower and skylight, a solid surface vanity, linen closet, wardrobe and numerous storage drawers, excellent lighting and a large medicine cabinet.
