RE: Bought a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht

We had a 30' 98 land yacht for a couple of years. Bought it new. It was small enough that we did not tow intially. Drove well in the wind because of slanted front. We got 10-11 mpg at highway speed. We did have trouble with water getting into bays and we had some mice issues. I do not remember having to make any repairs on the unit. We traded for larger unit because we were going to be spending about 4 months out of the year in it. We are still doing it. Good luck with the coach. We don't tow. We boondock and mountain bike in California and the Southwest. I'm looking forward to driving it on the highway and feeling the difference it's aerodynamic shape makes in the handling.

Congrats! Sounds like a nice MH. Now let's see some pics! Haven't taken possession yet. We should get it home this week.

Bought a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht

We had a 20k budget and found a very clean well kept 30' Land Yacht for 16k. 80k miles which was more than I was hoping for but the motor runs great and judging by the rest of the coach it's been well cared for. These appear to be well built motorhomes. It has the features we want and we like the layout. We probably spend between 15 and thirty days a year in our RV. Does anyone have any experience or opinions with these?

RE: 1994 Safari Serengeti DP

That's way below the prices I've seen. You did very well.

RE: 1994 Safari Serengeti DP

The generator is probably propane powered -- Make sure it runs good -- It`s not easy to find someone to work on them -- I think the Safari would be a good choice for a first time DP -- Not near as complicated as later models, & they are well built -- William Willard The generator hadn't been run in three years and wasn't working. The owner inherited the RV and didn't really know much about it. It was in generally good shape. The motor ran great, jacks worked. Carpet and cabinetry were good. Paint and exterior good. I wasn't feeling it though. It's important to me, and especially my wife that it feels like a place we'd like to hang out in. I wasn't getting that from this coach and my wife would even less so. Nice platform, strong runner, needs generator work...but not for me. I appreciate the comments. I always pick up valuable info here.

1994 Safari Serengeti DP

Long time class A gasser owner. Looking at this DP. Seems nice and within my 20k budget. Opinions? Oshkosh chassis I believe. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/rvs/d/orangevale-1994-safari-serengeti-diesel/7226736317.html

RE: Looking at a couple of new (used) motorhome options. Advice?

I can't get the first to link either. However, my perspective: these are 20 and 27 year old vehicles, respectively. The condition of the specific rig, its engine maintenance history, etc., would be more important to me than the colors or small layout details. (Wives, however, tend to be unsatisfied if they don't like the RV's layout.) Rig #2, all else being equal, should be a stronger and more responsive vehicle. It also is 7 years older. Back to point #1: Condition, condition, condition. Agreed and understood. The diesel looks to be in good shape. I would pay for an independent inspection before buying it. Here's another similar Rexhall https://sacramento.craigslist.org/rvd/d/sacramento-2002-rexhall-american/7215301208.html

Take fx’s word..Rexhall is gone, gone. Works for me every time. Copy URL and paste in a new window. Clear your cookies and try it again. Shows "Expired" when I copy and paste. Yes refresh showed expired. Here's another example, though a bit more than I want to spend. https://sacramento.craigslist.org/rvd/d/sacramento-2002-rexhall-american/7215301208.html

RE: Looking at a couple of new (used) motorhome options. Advice?

Diesel = more power than gas but higher maintenance unless your able to do some of the basics. You'll like the lighter colors also. I'd rather not wrench myself. I do have a mechanic who can come to my house who's reasonable and could cover the basic maintenance. Isn't the ride quality, noise level, stability, etc., much better with the DP?

Looks like the Rexhall is gone (or the post expired) It's still there. For some reason these links only work if you copy and paste them.

Looking at a couple of new (used) motorhome options. Advice?

I've looked at various Class As in my price range, around 20k, and like the late 90s to early 2000s Rexhall like this one https://sacramento.craigslist.org/rvd/d/sacramento-2002-rexhall-american/7215301208.html However this DP caught my eye https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/rvs/d/ontario-diesel-pusher-motorhome-cummins/7222887186.html I realize these are completely different animals, and while my wife prefers the colors and look of the Rexhall interior I know the DP is a much more substantial vehicle. My only worry is the cost of maintaining it. What do you think?

RE: Weak headlights

Found some LED replacement headlamps on Amazon. We'll see how it goes!

RE: Weak headlights

Thanks for the responses. I will definitely explore these options.

Weak headlights

I have an 88 Coachmen Classic and I wonder if the is an HID headlamp option for the old sealed headlamp style. Any ideas?

RE: Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

PS—I just checked it out—GO FOR IT! Price is good and there have been many improvements. Coach looks in great condition. Alloy wheels have been added, new toilet, etc. Sounds like a deal to me!l Can't see more than $12500 for putting into a non slide old coach and that's after researching the diesel that's in it. If it might be troublesome, one could put easily put another 12,500 in it. I'd pay the asking price if it had a gas motor. I inquired about this diesel on Trek Tracks and was convincing warned off it. I do not want a slide out BTW.

RE: Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

Treks are a neat RV. They have a lot of good features packed into a small package. Coaches are well made and there is a large following. There are a number of Trek clubs that gather and there is a lot of information available thru them. There is a Trek gathering in Quartzsite every year, this year there was almost 200. The front end diesel might be a bit noisier than a gasser but the the difference in MPG would be worth it. I assume it performs better than a gas motor in the hills. Any idea the make and model of the motor? I emailed the seller but haven't heard back from him yet.

Looking at this 99 Safari Trek deisel

Anyone familiar with these? Is this engine in the front? I've only had gassers so I'm pretty much in the dark about the pros and cons of deisels lIke this. I'd imagine it's no quieter than a gas motor in the front.Coach looks pretty nice from what I can see. https://www.rvtrader.com/listing/1999-Safari-TREK-2830-DSL-5013436141
