Mobile Home, Flying Edition
The good old mobile home, now with four Pratt & Whitney. Actually handles
really good. And all you Sherlocks out there "discovering" that it's not
real footage: yes of course I did this in 3ds max. Duh.

My $500 Craigslist score bug out vehicle
For all your life on the road, boondocking and prepping needs buy your
products at below wholesale prices with no shipping fees.
http://www.tmart.com/sl/53ed7f8485d99 I've been buying gear from them for
years and have always been pleased. Check out the prices on LED bulbs,
you'll be amazed...
I had a few doubters in the recent past and for those of you who wish to
see proof of the $500 purchase price. I do have a few images of the
Washington State registration on the old girl when I first bought her. On
it, you will see the "Use Tax" which totals a whopping $44.50 and is how
Washington taxes a buyer on a private party sale of a used vehicle. When I
walked in to get licensed, I had the seller right there with a long list of
things that need to be done to the RV in order to make her road worthy and
livable. As such, the tax was not on the blue book value but on the reduced
amount of the sale.
Had the coach been drivable (It hadn't moved in 8 years) and in good
working order (I spent months getting her safe for the road) with nothing
wrong the state would have taxed me on the $10,000 valuation which would
have meant the tax would have been $860. Lucky for me with a then lean
pocketbook, the price was $500 which left the tax at $44.50. If you look at
the following three images you will see the registration showing the $44.50
use tax that I paid.
Also, by visiting the following link you will see the state of Washington
sales and use tax data sheet. If you scroll down to Redmond Non-RTA you'll
see that the total of both taxes is .086. The tax amount that they charged
me was in fact .089 as the tax fluctuates from date and location. So, by
taking the $500 selling price and multiplying it by the .089 tax that they
charged me on that day you get the $45.50 I paid in "Use Tax". Anyone who
can do simple math can calculate back to get the selling price this way.
Here is what she looked like when I found her.
Being a disabled former Marine who couldn't then afford the $10,000 (for
one in perfect running order) and then another $860 in tax and $150 in
licensing fees finding the ad for the old girl for $500 was then and still
is a Godsend. Truly a blessing indeed... Had I not bought her and been
forced to find another motorhome for what I spent on her I would be truly
miserable as most RVs in that price range are unlivable and wouldn't last
me long on the road. Truly awesome to say the least...
As far as autos for $500 goes, she's a winner. Sure, it has need of some
minor repairs and the gluing of some siding to correct the delamination but
even if I was to spend a few grand to fix everything I would be ahead by
many thousands of dollars.
The ad that was placed on Craigslist said something like (86 motorhome that
sat for 6 years and does not run, $500) Getting there I find out that the
tabs were not renewed since 2004 which meant the 6 years should have been 8
and in checking the manufacturer's plate she was a 1988 and not an 86.
Being a newer by two years coach meant that in Washington state that I
needed to have an emissions done to get her on the road. Thankfully
(amazingly), she passed with flying colors...
She has served me well and given me the ability to get out when and where I
need to be with few major issues.
They bought it new in 1988 for about $55,000 ($108,734.02 today) and used
it for 16 years taking one trip a year to total under 20K on the odometer.
Then she sat from 2004 until when I revived her in 2012.
The only thing that would have made the deal better would have been if they
had a covered carport to park her under.

Our Top RV Picks Under 30 feet
Update: We decided to keep Windy for the remainder of our RV travel's. We
begged her to take us back and she did! You can read why here:
As most of you know our Windy is for sale and we are looking for a new home
on wheels! This will be our 4th RV purchase and needless to say, we know
Here is our general "RV wish list":
Length: under 30ft
Sleeps: 4 (we are having some guests this year)
Generator (for our boondocking days)
Good inside storage (because we are full time)
Somewhat contemporary styling
We have stopped off at several RV Dealerships along our route in Wisconsin
and Missouri. So far and these are our favorites.
Winnabego View 24M - MSRP $110,000
Winnabego Vista 26HE - MSRP $70,000
Leisure Travel Unity 24MB - MSRP $120,000
Thor Ace 27.1 - MSRP $91,000 (not in the video: this floor plan isn't out
yet but we like the 29.1)
Thor Siesta 24SR - MSRP $108,000 (not in the video: each dealer we went to
was sold of out, but that's a good sign)
EarthRoamer XV-SLT diesel 4x4 expedition RV
Definitely one of the nicest off road RV's I have ever seen in person. This
model was top of the line and outfitted with gear that could allow you to
live off the grid for months.
All that capability and self reliance comes with a price though...starting
price is about $260,000+
Yes its pricey but you have to remember this is an alternative to the
million dollar "pavement only" motor coaches that you see at every NASCAR
race, drag strip, dirt bike race, Trophy Truck race, NFL parking lot, RV
park and movie set.
At least this RV can keep going when the road ends.
