Rita Winnebago Is For Sale: $9,000 Or Best Offer - bingfutch@yahoo.com

The Lovely Winnebago "Rita" Is For Sale

What started as a small crowd sourcing campaign for tour wheels slowly emerged with the most famous Winnebago Warrior of all time: Rita.  As home away from home for touring musician Bing Futch (me), it has been on an extraordinary journey from coast to coast and back again. 

Rita was purchased through the blessed help of a fan-driven crowd sourcing campaign to replace my broken main ride.  I purchased Rita on May 18th, 2011 from Joe Kaminski of Leesburg, Florida, whom I gather was the second owner. $5500 cash.   She had 62,000 miles on her.  1991.  Generator had maybe 2 hours total.  Nobody was using this thing.  Just enough, though, to let some stuff go.  I spent the better part of 2011 - 2013 going after repairs, both preventive and non, until it slowly eased into a "fine tuning" phase.  I feel good about her current state as of November 25th, 2015.  We've just finished a 30,000 mile journey across the United States and back again.  She is a tough little beast, a 3.0 liter Toyota 3VZE 6 cylinder chugger that has conquered most of the mountain ranges in the states.  Refurbished Jasper engine rebuilt was put in October 14th of 2014, so that engine now has 37,068 miles on it.  I am hyper-religious about fluids and regular maintenance with Rita, have been since Day One.  

In any case, instead of putting a bunch of money into repairs, I'm just going to sell her as-is to someone who will hopefully treat her gently.  I did do the work on the loft rebuild and I'm real happy with the way that it came out.  She is a fixer-upper coming at a good price based on my investments and blue book ratings.  $9,000 as-is:

Here's the scoop.  It's the coach that requires the most attention.  I've tackled the major leaks that had been in existence and they are fixed. There is a small leak in the plumbing towards the rear of the coach. The wood should be replaced in the bathroom due to water damage, but not extensive enough where it's anything but a nuisance.  I had the front/back repainted and was going to paint the sides, but selling her as-is will be the way I'm going. I've got the service records on absolutely everything that has been done to Rita with all of the attendant warranties.  There is also the information on the RV itself, all original manuals and additional manuals for upgraded equipment and appliances are present and accounted for.  There's lots of stuff that needs to be bolted down, retightened, some things could certainly be replaced, like old particle-board drawers.  Take care of the coach and it will last as long as the amazing Toyota V6!

I really, really love this little RV.  She's been my Magic Carpet for the past five years and, thankfully, we still have a few more miles to travel before someone takes over.  I'm blessed to be working so much that it requires me to upgrade my transportation, that's kinda cool.  But I can't just keep every vehicle I've ever owned, either.
