Carefully perusing the Internet in 2009, we traveled to Idaho, Arizona, Texas, California, and Oregon to find the perfect motorcoach. Following many disappointments and while in Arizona, we decided to check out Camping World’s RV sales. Upon describing to the salesman what we wanted, he pointed us to a 1998 Safari Serengeti that had just been traded in with only 38,000 miles on it. The coach lived most of its life in a garage and still smelled new. The owner had traded it in the day before so we were the first to look at it. It was love at first site. After looking through the coach inside and out, Chuck looked at the mechanics and being satisfied with that, he drove it. Since everything was perfect and up to our standards, including the price that we negotiated with them, we felt this was a blessing from above so we purchased it. We could now see our dream coming true and new beginnings.
Some of the features that enhanced the purchase of our motorcoach, besides being well maintained mechanically, are as follows:
Color, clean lines, and only one slide out.
No abuse, scratches, or paint peeling on the outside.
Loved the Black Panther mural. Murals are a trademark of Safari motorcoaches. If you click on the picture twice to blow it up, notice the butterflies and ants hidden in the mural. Since I love fairies and butterflies, this mural touched my heart.

building three more drawers under the first
drawer of the vanity. Love the fact that
Chuck can do his thing at the sink and
I can put my makeup on at the
Vanity - all at the same time.
We will be having the extra cabinets and drawers built in April/May 2010. Chuck had a MotoSat installed on the top so we are able to go on the Internet or watch TV whenever we stop. We also traded off the older TV's located at the front and in the bedroom, with new HD TV's that were purchased for a bus conversion we were going to do years before. We are also going to trade off the non-vented Bendix Washer/Dryer combo with a vented Splendide Washer/Dryer that was also purchased years before. The Pilot area will have a table where we can put our large/heavy duty printer.
Our plan is to actually hit the road by July 2010. We may be heading your way?
