It is in excellent condition, stored inside, all systems work well, rear queen bed, reupholstered couch, new tires and new batteries. We have several pictures we can provide just email BethWheat@hotmail.com. We are located in SW Michigan. We are asking
For Sale 1989 Avion Travel Trailer- 34-VB Basement Model — In 1989 & 1990, when Fleetwood switched to painted aluminum trailers as the wind down of the aluminum coach began, they offered a 'basement' model. Basements were only available on the 34' triple axle models. Basically, they elevated the frame off the axles and created storage areas between the frame and the underbelly. You know those (somewhat) useless storage lockers along the bottom of a regular Avion? Think of those only with bigger doors and more storage space. The exterior looks like a regular coach with a heavier skirt. As a result, 2 furnaces were installed and the water heater was moved to the basement, thus freeing up space internally. I would suspect that the basement option was a pretty significant price increase over a traditional Avion (2 furnaces, after all). Our basement model also includes space for a second rooftop A/C unit. Most basements seem to be listed at about $15,000 according to NADA. Recently one in Mississippi sold for over $18K & one in Michigan for $15K. I’m certain they were pristine! Since our baby needs cleaning, tires and some minor repairs, we are asking $7500.00. We have a clear title. Ours has a couple of dings to the skin, but there are no leaks and the floor is in perfect shape with no spongy places. The interior has all solid Maple wood cabinets, vinyl flooring, and original furnishings including the sleeper sofa and the dinette area. The kitchen has a new faucet and sink. We recently installed a new $4.00 fuse that saved having to replace the original microwave oven as our goal has always been to try and keep her as original as possible. There is an AM/FM CD player with four speakers. Avion has a monitor panel which contains a 12 Volt Disconnect switch to power down all 12 V Circuits when not in use. Other functions include LP gas monitor, battery condition, barometer, thermometer and hygrometer. It also allows you to switch off the propane to conserve propane when not cooking or needing hot water. In the bathroom, we installed a new a taller toilet. There is a cedar lined closet, and there are no cracks in the tub/shower surround. We replaced the water heater with a new 6 gal one that was made specifically for this model RV. The custom curtains and shades are in “like new” condition. We’ve installed new LED lighting and fluorescent tubes over the dining table and kitchen sink. We replaced the A/C motor last year. It works very well even in the Arizona desert heat, even during the humid monsoon months. Because we’ve lived in her full time for the last 4 years, I’m pretty sure you would need to replace the two golf cart sized batteries to be able to run on battery power. As far as we know, everything works except the second furnace…the squirrel cage squeals so badly, we’ve not been able to turn it on long enough to verify the furnace actually works. Not being very handy we haven’t made the effort to repair it since the once furnace works very nicely and we opted for the more efficient electric radiator heater. We were told it’s probable a wasps nest causing the squirrel cage to be out of balance, but we really don’t know, however all duct work is installed. The trailer has been stored outside at the home of our landlady for the last year because my husband was transferred to North Dakota with his job. We’re certain it needs some cosmetic things to make her look pretty and well loved like new red and amber marker lights, maybe some weather trim molding trailer and needs to be polished. For safety’s sake we’re certain that: the bearings need to be sealed and packed; new brake shoe assemblies installed, new (Monroe) shocks, tires, brakes and axle service just to get it road worthy again. We have 6 leveling jacks and 2 5/16 ball hitch. It’s probably time to have the roof completely resealed. There are Zip-Dee awnings completely around. I have all receipts and the ORIGINAL owner’s manual! (4/13/2016) Contact: Brian & Kathy Ward; ----- Arizona, Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
