Y’know…it comes in waves.
Sometimes we get a handful of really rough motorhomes that we sell for next
to nothing, and sometimes we get a handful of really NICE motorhomes that
anyone would be proud to own.
This Sunrise is one of
the nice ones. One of the nicest of
This motorhome is…amazing.
Clean. Purrs like a kitten. TONS of upgrades. Solid condition. Great layout.
Well-maintained. The batteries look like new and the terminals are spotless.
The generator is clean enough to eat off of (and it runs like a dream). The
tires look like they’re brand new. The awnings have great fabric on them
under their protective metal wraps. There’s a King-Dome antenna on the roof
along with a pair of air conditioners. Automatic leveling jacks underneath, along
with a Banks performance exhaust system for the 460 that sounds great! No rips or tears in the interior.
The carpet has some wear on it…but you can barely see it. There are no odors.
No soft spots. No stains. On top of its excellent condition…there’s
Winnebago/Itasca build quality. Welded aluminum side and roof structure.
Steel cab, dash, and floor structure. Steel appliance mounting points.
Interlocking floor/wall and wall/roof joints. This is a seriously solid,
seriously safe motorhome. See the link
above for more details in the factory brochure .pdf, on the Winnebago
The roof airs both work,
nice and cold and quiet. The furnace works. Water heater lights. Water pump
works. Jacks work. Generator runs great. Fridge cools right down. There is a
kickin’ Sony surround sound system with subwoofer that’s been added along
with a flat-screen TV, and the stereo sounds great! It has a backup camera
that also works like it should. The worst part about the interior – and even
it isn’t really “bad” – is some drooping headliner panels. Not from water –
back in the ‘90s they used automotive style headiners made of foam with vinyl
skin. Over time, the foam dries out and comes apart and the skin sags, just
like an old car. That’s all this is, and I’ve seen them much worse than this
one. You can go to JoAnn Fabrics and get new headliner material by the roll
if you want to re-do it…or you can just leave it as it is because it really
Outside? Gorgeous. Clean.
Shiny. Great color in the graphics. Those like-new tires. Polished exhaust
tip. Clean roof. No body damage whatsoever. There are a couple super-small
delams here and there, but for eighteen years old? It’s amazing. The 460 runs
great with no noises and we haven’t seen any leaks. The only mechanical item
that didn’t work for me? Dash a/c – it blows, just not cold. No surprise,
given the age. And while I’m not a PA-certified inspection station, it was
traded to us with a PA inspection dated until June 2014. Not sure if it
transfers to a new owner or if you have to have it redone, but looking at the
overall condition? I’d be surprised if it needed anything to get recertified.
What I can do is, include MD state inspection
for no charge when a MD buyer clicks Buy It Now. This…is against our standing
company policy based on age, but this camper is SO NICE we’re willing to take
that chance for my bidders.

If you like one of my
items…click the button.
When one of my listings
disappears, it means you waited too long to click, and someone else came on
the lot and bought it.
I still have a lot of new
retail units getting sold (our company sells more than 1,000 units a year).
Lots of units being sold means lots of trade-ins coming in. Lots of trade-ins
coming in means I still have a great
selection of nice, quality used campers for my bidders – all shapes, all
sizes, all price ranges, anywhere from showroom-fresh to “handyman specials”.
There’s something for everyone! And
fall is a GREAT time to buy a camper that needs a little cleaning, or
touch-up work, or updating, because it won’t cut into the typical “camping
season”. You can take your time and do your work over the cooler months, and
when the nice weather comes back around, you and your camper are up to speed
and ready to go.
My eBay units are the
very same units I have on my retail lot…just cheaper. Since I get them listed as soon as they come on the lot
(sometimes before we even clean
them!), I can get discounts on them because we haven’t done anything to them.
That’s the best time to buy – we’ve already spent money trading (buying) the
unit, so I can’t give them away for free, but my bidders get to buy before we
spend any more money cleaning,
tinkering, fixing, or sealing. And in my ads, I’ll tell you if a unit needs any cleaning, tinkering, fixing,
or sealing…and you get to make the
decision – is it worth buying it now, and cleaning/tinkering with it myself, so
I can save all this money? Or do I want to wait until the price goes up,
because they did all this stuff to it for their retail lot?
I’m a straight shooter
in my ads. I don’t hide issues. I don’t “forget” details. I work in the
industry, so I know what I’m looking at and I know what to look for. I write
honest listings and I sell units for a great price. I hit my boss up for
every discount we can find before I write the ad – usually thousands of dollars off our lot
price. I price for cash buyers, but there’s a link to our credit application
in the bright green box if you need financing. You get a great unit…and you save money!
So if you like a
unit…and you like the price I have it listed for here on eBay…and you want to
save some money because you can do some cleaning and tinkering on your own…click
that button before someone else clicks it, before someone comes on the lot
and sees how nice it is and buys it, and before my shop starts doing work to
it and driving the price up. If you want
us to clean it, or re-seal it, or tinker with the appliances for you…let me
know how much or how little you want us to do, and I’ll be happy to get a time
and price quote for you. We can do
it all. The reason we don’t for my eBay items is strictly time, and budget –
the more we do, the longer it takes and the more it costs…and I’m trying to
SAVE YOU SOME MONEY so you can get your new camper for as little money as possible, and as quickly as possible.
