UPDATE! WE’RE NOT… Parting with “The Beast”!

As if now The Beast is off the market. There’s just too much still to see out there!

Yes, I’ve been mulling this over for quite some time, and making the final decision has not been easy. “The Beast”, my 35′ Winnebago, has been so good to me! More than 40,000 miles together and rarely a problem. That’s a huge blessing for a solo female traveler. (Even one who’s handy with tools!) But… after a year and a half out of my “full-timer” status I find that she’s not getting the use she deserves. I’m still doing a lot of hiking (which I’ll be writing about soon) but my guy is an avid sailor, so most of my adventures are taking me to places The Beast just can’t go!

An added bonus to the right buyer is that I’m making “Zippy” (my reliable Honda CRV dingy) available as well. I’m not wanting or needing to sell my Honda, but the two are all set up with towing and braking packages, meaning someone could save themselves a lot of time and money “getting connected”.

Here’s the scoop and pictures:



This is a a much loved and well cared for Class A motorhome. Ford V10 gas engine, 48,000 miles (She’s seen all the lower 48!) Sleeps six. Full Body Paint, Ford 24,000# Heavy-Duty Chassis, One-piece Fiberglass Roof, 30 ft Slide on Drivers Side, 2 Slides on Passenger Side, exterior entertainment system, Basement A/C, Onan 5500 Generator, 81 gallon water tank, Hydraulic Leveling Jacks, 5,000 lb. Trailer Hitch, Kingdome Satellite System, King size bed, Queen sleeper sofa and 4 person Dinette Booth. 40″ flat screen with DVD player, 26″ TV with stereo, CD/DVD player, non-smoker.

ADDED OPTIONS: Ultra Leather Cab Seats and sofa, 10 gallon Electric / LP Water Heater, Entertainment Center with CD, Microwave/Convection Oven, 22.5 Aluminum Wheels, Driver Window Shades, Front Power Shades, Front Protective Mask, Stereo System, 10-Watt Solar Panel, auto start generator, Rear View Monitor w/Audio, Satellite radio, video camera system, 4-Door Wood-Paneled Refrigerator with Ice Maker, Automatic Electric Wind Sensitive Patio Awning, 600 Watt AC/DC Inverter, Power ventilators, Washer / Dryer Combo, Built-in 50 Amp Surge Protector all totaling over $24,000.

In addition- brand new engine and chassis batteries, brand new front tires, Hub mounted stainless steel dual tire inflators, wheel/tire covers, full motorhome cover, and other extras. Asking $75,900.00


And a really sweet deal on the perfect tow vehicle- 2010 Honda CRV-EXL pre-equipped with Roadmaster InvisiBrake system ($1345 parts and install value) and Blue Ox towing system with drop shank tow bar ($1806 parts and install value). 78,000 miles. This is a great car that I have no desire to sell, but would save a new motorhome owner a lot of time and money. Asking $16,500.

Here’s a couple posts I wrote leading up to the added tow car and towing package. Lot’s of research went into my choices, and who better to ask than those who have been there before me!!  Sitting In Silence and And the Two Shall Become One

  1. It was such fun to follow your adventures. I hope that will continue with your new adventures. Also so glad you have found such a great guy. He better be deserving of such a wonderful lady. Hugs and wishing you good luck with selling the Beast.

    • Thanks Marla. I was just telling John earlier that having so many wonderful friends along… old friends and the new ones I met along the way… Journeying with me vicariously made the adventure much more fun and less lonely for me. I felt you all out there. And yes… I found a guy who is very deserving of my love and affection. Stay tuned. The adventures continue, and the writings will resume again soon.

  2. No…I just found your website!! Love your pictures and journey…It does not appear you visited NH…wonderful Lake Winnepasaukee nor Newfound Lake, White Mountains, Conway, Kangamangus HWY etc… You must fly there and explore,

    • Hi Cindy. I did actually travel through NH! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t very cooperative. White Mountains were lovely, and I do hope to get back to the northeast one day. Didn’t get near enough time there and also Vermont. My journey took me through just before hurricane Sandy. I’ll keep your list of suggestions for my return. Thank you!

  3. Would love to purchase this whe setup. Just lost my husband to cancer two months ago. We had planned on going full time before he passed away. Now I want to go solo full time as soon as possible. I just need to sell everything and my house. Working on that now. Your traveling home is beautiful!

      • My new husband and I have decided to keep it. We’ll be going full time between that and our 30′ sailboat next year! Can’t wait!

    • So sorry to hear of your husbands passing Barbara. If you are anything like me you’ll love traveling the country and finding new friendships along the way. Best wishes for a remarkable future!
