About this listing
There is nothing like experiencing the open roads of our country, sitting up high and being able to see instead of just staring at the trunk of the car ahead of you.
If you are interested in RV-ing and want to check out if this is for you before you take the plunge and take on the expense of buying your own, or if you are seasoned but want to wait until you can work less to enjoy your RV more, then renting is the way to go.
In October of 2017, we purchased a 40-ft Diesel Pusher because we needed a larger RV and so we would be able to toad our car. But after putting all this work into Dancer, we decided to make her available to you instead of just selling her for a song. We would take her out on the road to anywhere in a heart beat, because she has proven to be dependable on 2 trips from El Paso to DC within the past 8 month
05 Jan '18: replaced the metal weathershield that safely encases the 22-ft fabric awning when not in use or while traveling.
30 Dec '17: installed a 19-in TV in the bedroom and a 19-in TV/DVD combo in the front. Both are on articulated wall mounts and each has a 50-mi TV antenna with amplifier.
Oct '17: Dancer just came out of the shop after our last 2 1/2-month trip to the DC area. She had a head-2-toe check-up to make sure everything is in top condition for her next adventure with you. The back brake pads were replaced, new igniter switch for the stove installed, head lights adjusted, exhaust pipe secured with a bracket, and a general check of all the systems/equipment, to include checking the roof for any leaks and resealing the roof lights. She also got all the carpet in the living and bedroom replaced with heavy duty tile and wood-look vinyl tiles and the windows re-screened.
While this is a 1994, she is well maintained with low mileage (only 65K), only had 2 prior owners (the last owner had her for 15 years), and the inside was completely redone before we purchased her in Jan '17. (newly re-upholstered captain's chairs, seats, couch and dinette).
Since then, we had the starter replaced on the generator, new motor and digital thermostat for the gas furnace installed, new Kenwood radio/cd player with bluetooth connectivity, new bass speakers, replaced both roof ACs-both now also have heat strips (at that time we also had all the electrical wiring checked and replaced as necessary), had the suspension redone: added stabilizer bars on the front, front airbags were replaced with SuperSprings coils, the rear had the leaf suspension reshaped and an extra leaf added on both sides and SuperSprings SumoSprings Rear Bump Stop Upgrade Kit installed (it now rides super smooth) and of course we also had it just aligned, new head lights, new vehicle battery and new compressor for the dash AC.
The motorhome has a solar charger on the roof that continuously charges the house and the vehicle batteries. It has an auxiliary start, which allows you to temporarily use the house battery to assist the vehicle battery in starting the RV. Toilet w/sink is separate from the shower. The shower has a small tub with a seat at the back so you can sit down to shower. Bathroom has a ceiling fan. The center of the passenger area has a Fantastic ceiling fan. The fridge/freezer works on propane, generator or when the RV is hooked up to a 30 amp outlet. It has hydraulic leveling jacks and lots of storage inside and underneath. There are 6 seats with seat belts and comfortable sleeping spaces for 5: queen-size RV mattress in rear bedroom, dinette converts to a twin and the sofa to a full-size sleeper. If you have small children, 2 could share the twin bed. It is very simple to operate and of course we will go over everything with you.
Pick-up and drop-off times are totally negotiable. Going over everything on pick-up day will take about 1 to 1 1/2hrs. Responsible pet owners are welcome to bring their well-behaved furry companions, birds, etc.
20 gal black water tank, 65 gal fresh, 40 gal grey. You only need to run the generator if you want to run the roof ACs, microwave or use the 110 outlets. Furnace & stove run on propane. Texas taxes are included.
