RVs We Have Loved…
(Posted beginning with our latest coach in reverse order.)
Big Blue II:
I never would have purchased another coach because Cecil the Diesel was so perfect for us. But when she was totaled in that awful accident in October of 2017, we had no choice. We were very blessed to have found our next coach, a 2005 Bounder Diesel. She was in even better condition than our beloved Cecil, but a bit larger at 34 feet long.
Big Blue II arrived at our home on November 16, 2017. My hope since the accident was to have a coach for our usual trip to Craig’s in Stockton for the family Thanksgiving Day feast, then on to my sister’s place in Gridley the day after.Big Blue II came to us in wonderful condition, and longer by two feet than any of our prior coaches. Here is her very roomy living room…
…and two views of the bedroom. She came with a very comfortable TempurPedic mattress, and after just one night aboard we’re thinking seriously of buying one for our home bed, too.
Cecil the Diesel:
The diesel itch was getting pretty severe. Although Big Blue had been an excellent coach for us, I wanted the improved air ride and greatly improved fuel efficiency of a diesel. I’d been looking for over a year when I found my dream motorhome about 150 miles away. I plopped down the money the day I saw her and never regretted it. She was so comfortable, so efficient, and so beautiful, too.
Here we pose with our Cecil the Diesel shortly after we purchased her.
Cecil the Diesel was my pride and joy during the short time we owned her. This is one of the rare photos that her actual colors reproduced correctly; for some reason digital photos did not capture her accurately very often. This photo was taken in Montana during one of our adventures.
She had a beautiful interior.
We bought her in March of 2015, and for about three months ’til I sold Big Blue we were the not-so-proud owners of two motorhomes! She was a beauty and I really enjoyed her!
She had a very serious, big-rig style instrument panel.
We put about 25,000 miles on her over the short time we had her, and drove her as far as Indiana. She was a fantastic ride. I could go almost 1000 miles between fill-ups because she had a very large fuel tank and she used that fuel very efficiently. She rode splendidly with her air-ride suspension. And with that big diesel pushing from the rear, the ride was quiet and very pleasant.October, 2017 and I kissed my beloved Cecil goodbye after the awful accident we had in Kansas. We were not at fault, and fortunately we were not hurt, but Cecil was totaled. The other driver died. What a terrible, terrible shame.
We then bought the 2006 Itasca Sunova that became known as Big Blue. During the three years we owned her, up to June of 2015, we put on about 50,000 miles. Our Itasca Sunova when we first bought her…
She had a very nice interior.
