Good find Blizz. Definitely the best example I've seen in the price range, and I have been looking. 29 years old, but looking well preserved. I did take your advice and peruse Race, performance & street cars, engines, engine parts, trailers for sale again, and there are a few gems on there. Here are some examples:

2000 United Express Toterhome For Sale

2000 FL70 Toterhome For Sale

1999 NRC FL70 14' Toter Home/AUTOSHIFT For Sale

F650 Toter excellent cond trades For Sale

GMC Toter Cat with Generator For Sale

international toter For Sale

And Blizz- this one is just for you. I think if you knock off the air conditioner this one might actually fit in your garage:


Looks like he copied rumrunner, must have read your build thread!

Those first few in the $40,000 range would have been $75-80,000 3 years ago, and then there is a whole batch of more budget minded units. And I was only looking at toters, not necessarily motor homes or garage units.

Maybe if I can save up the 40 grand before my next trip to Elkhart I might just take your advice...
