We had been talking about getting rid of it - selling it.
It wouldn't start. So we bought a battery.
It still wouldn't start.
So I placed an ad on Craigslist. $2500 or best offer. The low retail is $8500 but that is if it was running and we do have some maintanance on the inside that has to be done.
We were offered $1500. Just makes me sick. We paid $39,000 back in 2003 when it was 9 years old. With interest, we paid more like $70,000 +. It just HIT me. NO WAY was I going to let her go, for that amount.
We had her towed on Tuesday to the mechanic. We've decided that while she is a money pit and white elephant, she is OUR Money-Pit/White Elephant, And she still has some fun left in her. (I think - I hope)
1. Just get her running
2. Just get her smogged
That's all. Oh and we're going to store her instead of parking her to the side of the house. It's always been an hour long hassle to pull her in and take her out.
I even joined a website where you book and rent out your RV. That's a possibility.
Then the Husband goes to work, and one of his co-workers keeps asking about buying the motorhome.
Who knows? We just stick to THE PLAN and we'll see what happens.
If push comes to shove, we'll donate her and get the tax write off. It's not as much as you would think. $500 at first and then whatever they get at auction. They would send us the amount for our taxes.
