PPL is a reputable outfit....
Their parts department is stellar.
Wow, some great looking options there well within the target price range. Too bad they're so far away.
I bought a 1990 Winnebago on a Ford chassis (Class-C) for $6500. Less than 60,000 miles on the clock. Tires needed to be replaced. Sleeps 4 adults plus 2 kids. It was in quite good condition. Every thing works.
Obviously that's not a high-end RV, but adequate for my needs. Keep your eyes open - deals show up every day.
some pics from one of the links in post 2000
sorry, i don't know how to make the pics any bigger
I will second that. Have ordered a ton of stuff from them over the years and well remember some decent motorhomes that I have seen on their lot.
You can do it. Look in the RV Trader and on eBay and Craigslist for an early diesel pusher. The one caveat with this is that it's tough to get financing on an RV over 10 years old, or so I have heard.
Yes, I spent an hour on the phone with their techs one time finding a small pin for my awning. Very impressed that they stuck with me and found it, when I get south I'm going to visit their for sale lot.
This is on CL in CSprings right now $5000
1967 Buick LaSabre house car. sleeps 6, propane/electric refrigerator, stove/oven, sink, toilet/shower, 110volts/12 volts, V8 motor runs, trans. good. House car was built in Denver Co. back in the 60's. This 1967 buick lasabre house car might be the only one in the country on the road. Still need some TLC.
That would be cool except for all the fuckers taking pictures of it and posting them on web forums all the time.
Anyone have any info on this?
That thing is awesome!
This man should seriously start his own conversion company. That is a bad ASS EXPEDITION rig!!!
Anyone have any experience with the Alfa Toyhouse toy hauler trailers? I have been negotiating with a gent that has one and I am thinking that it's going to be worth riding over to take a look at it when I get a break from this site.
Holy Cow! Looks like a work of art!
A one off custom based on an old bus, probably someone's collage football tailgating rig. Lots of old RVs around here painted in Auburn, Alabama, or UGA colors that only roll to and from home-games.
Anyone recognize the emblem on the side?
Cool concept! It would be even cooler as a stationary concrete self contained unit.
^ I thought it was a folding hair dryer at first.
I built this for a French couple traveling the world a couple years ago.

Two questions for you motor home zealots:
1. Internet aces. I'm thinking about picking up a small Class B for ski bumming and dirt bike riding in the states. I would like Internet in the evenings but will be dry camping most times away from any wifi. Sooooooo how is internet accessed from a motorhome (with no cell phone contracts)? Is it possible to do without yearly contracts as I'm planning on being in the motorhome for 3-4 months per year?
2. I would like to carry my dirt bike on the rear bumper. Has anybody seen any ideas how to carry one on the bumper but protected from the elements?
Thanks in advance.
Technically the sat Internet people usually won't allow you to have a sat Internet setup with an RV because they claim the things are tough to aim and there are legal requirements. When I need to go to sat Internet I plan to go with these people -
http://www.MobileInternetSatellite.com . After online testing they will certify you as being a qualified installer, which strikes me as being a sane approach.
I say "usually". There are some early two way sat setups out there but they are bloody expensive.
Before you go that route however you might double check that there is no cellular service. I work in the remote parts of the southern Texas desert and have often been 40 miles from the closest US store and 10 miles from the border. Even there you can usually get a cell signal if you know the tricks. Basically everyone has a Wilson cell booster (I have a directional 115 volt one for an office mounted on top of a collapsible mast) and out here AT&T is the only game in town.
There are several lifts and carriers out there of various qualities. A tarp is about the best solution that I have ever seen for keeping the dirt off.
