    Talking LTB: 70ish Class C motorhome

    Okay... I am looking for a tailgating machine to travel to and from Ames for family and/or friends tailgating.

    I have been online, and for the most part know were to look, and am now asking for the help of any CF'ers out there.

    Requirements: 75K or less miles, toilet, working fridge, working water pump, CLEAN and no leaks.

    Bonus: generator, stove, sink, TV, DVD, awning and ladder.

    Most listings have the price around $1500-$3000... I am fine with that price range.

    If you know of anyone looking or wanting to sell, please PM with pics and a description. I am at the point of wanting to buy that right vehicle if it appears... i have cash in hand.

    I don't mind having to put some elbow grease into the vehicle, but I am not interested in a fixer-uper.

    Thanks in advance,

    -keep.

    that will be SWEET! We've wanted to take this leap about 10 times, but have held back so far. It won't be long though. I'd give us about 1-2 more seasons and we will be in market too.

    Not really interested in that ..... I need a place to get out of the weather for family, a toilet (wife requires it) and running water.

    Ahh, she gets nervous about peeing in the woods like some of us in the lots. Generally the police can scare the crap out of you if they walk up quietly while you are taking care of it.
    I want to try the Seinfeld parking lot excuse sometime...

    Good luck on the motor home, that would be a blast!

    I didn't think it was probably what you were looking for, but still sweet. However, they do have running water and toilets.

    -keep, you will love it. I got a '78 22'er last year and it works out great. Mine was $2,000 just to give you another cost comparison. 55k miles.

    Re: LTB: 70ish Class C motorhome

    I'm assuming you've been down the craigslist route. There's a bunch in the Des Moines RV section. This one looks like a decent prospect: 22' motorhome (and no I'm not selling it )
