05.25.18 – Please share!! Dora is for rent starting June 10th!

Friday, May 25, 2018 – Please feel free to share.  We ask (plead and beg!!) that you do share this blog post with your friends on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

As we move towards moving into our house in Amite on the 4th we are making plans to hopefully rent out our motor home.  We wrote a little bit about it before but this is hopefully all the information, all in one place.

I am working on a YouTube slideshow of photos and information about Dora, our pretty girl.  I’ll post it here when it’s ready. For now, here’s a link to a Facebook album with all of those photos in it.

We have registered Dora with the twowebsite that I wrote about recently. Links to the two companies are below:

-Luxury abounds in this beautiful motor home. This coach is powered by a 350 H.P. Caterpillar Diesel Engine that delivers plenty of power; whether you want to drive your family to Disney or cruise up California’s beautiful coastline Hwy 1 to San Francisco. The Spartan Chassis with an air ride suspension will give you a very stable and smooth ride. The Caterpillar Engine brake allows you to stop with confidence.

-Driving is enjoyable with oversized heated powered ultra-leather seats. Tilt and telescoping steering wheel let you find ‘your own’ exact fit while the oversize windshield lets you enjoy a panoramic view of the scenery ahead while the backup camera allows you to see directly behind you. Your passenger will be relaxed in a luxurious reclining heated ultra-leather seat with power foot rest.

-Setting up camp is simple with automatic hydraulic jacks that level the motor home with the touch of a single button. You can open up the living area with the touch of another button. You’ll be amazed of its huge size as the walls extend out. In the master bedroom, touch another button and watch the queen size sleep number bed slide out giving you even more room there. Combined with the 84′ ceiling height you’ll feel like you’re in the Superdome!

-The ultra-leather couch folds out into a queen size bed while the adjacent sofa converts into a Double sofa J-Bed. Enjoy your favorite movie or program on the 40′ H.D. TV with your choice of Antenna, Dish Hopper DVR Satellite, Cable or Blu-Ray/DVD with surround sound that will make you feel like you’re part of the action. You may choose a movie from our library or bring your own.

-The kitchen area is a Chefs’ delight! It’s equipped with a Convection microwave, a 3 burner gas stove, an oven, deep double sinks, side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, large Corian counter tops, and plenty of cabinets and drawers!

-Without starting the generator, the 2000-watt inverter allows your family to watch a movie from any one of the three TV’s onboard. You can also use the microwave, a few outlets, brew a cup of coffee.

-If full power is needed at a remote campsite the 7500-watt Onan quiet diesel generator will light up the whole coach including both thermostat controlled air conditioners.

-Do a load of laundry with the built in washer/dryer.

-There is a huge closet in the bedroom to hang up all your clothes combined with all the cabinet space and basement compartments there is ample room to bring lots of your favorite things.

-If the weather is right, head outside and set up your lounge chair, swivel the outside TV in your direction, and relax your cares away. If the sun gets too hot, or the rain starts to come down, push another button and watch as the awning automatically extends overhead.

The cancellation fees changes from website to website but is generally: 50% refund up to 14 days before pickup, then no refund after that

The listings are not 100 percent complete but they are pretty close. The per day, per week and per month rental rates have been lowered from their original prices.  We hope this will attract renters so we can see if this is worth doing.

If this doesn’t prove to be worth it, Dora will be for sale at $85,000 which is a steal, she even has all new Michelin tires!!

Roy and I will be moving into the house that we built three years ago in Amite, on June 4th.  We will then be working hard to have Dora spotless and ready to rent by June 10th. It may seem like it shouldn’t take much to move from Dora into the house.  However, we have several large storage areas underneath Dora in what we call the basement.  They are all pretty much full of things we don’t use everyday but have needed as we travel.  Every cabinet and drawer in the motor home has to be cleared out also.  The closet is full of clothes and under our bed is a huge storage place that is full.

I’ve started going through each cabinet and drawer to see what can be taken out now and packed so that the “big” move is a little easier. We’re only moving things across our front yard so that helps!

The biggest undertaking is writing a Renter’s Manual for those who “we hope” rent our motor home!   There’s a lot to share with a renter, especially to those who have never driven one of these big girls before.  We’ve made great progress on this and my goal is to be finished with it this weekend.  We’ll send it to Kteam Printing in Hammond and have it made into a spiral bound book.  We also plan to save it as a .pdf file and email it to the renters before they pick Dora up so they are familiar with things ahead of time.

You may have noticed that advertisements are back on our blog posts.  I actually earn money from these things anytime someone clicks on one and checks out the advertised product.  It’s not going to make us rich but it might take us out to dinner once a month so they are back.  I truly hope it is not too distracting and that ya’ll are okay with it.  If something does catch your eye, feel free to click.  It won’t take you somewhere terrible, it’s all reputable businesses.

Ya’ll come back now, ya; hear!Image result for motor home scripture quote
