New From South Lake Tahoe, California

Post by Julief8 »

Hi, I'm Julie and I just bought a 96/97 B190 with only 47,500 miles. It was manufactured in late 1996 so the Ford Econoline van is a 96 but the Airstream coach is a 97 with the new bathroom setup and other changes they did that year. It therefore has the 460 V-8. This is my second motorhome but first Airstream and Class B. My prior motorhome was a 1999 Tradewinds by National Class A diesel pusher. I lived in it for almost 2 years and drove it across the USA but maintenance and storage costs grew too much so I sold it about 3 years ago. Lately I've really been missing RVing and stumbled across my new to me B190 on Craigslist in Sacramento, CA. My rig was at a small local dealer but from seeing some oil change records it sat idle for over 3 years as the oil was changed last in April of 2015 and less that 200 miles ago. It needs a new A/C shroud which was broken and allowing water to drip through the A/C, a new house battery as it was 9 years old, its missing the bunk mattress and the ladder and needs a little TLC but all in all its a great rig. So my plan when I'm not using it is to store it at my house during non snow months and find indoor storage in Sacramento during snow months. I'm looking forward to many wonderful trips in this "personal" motorhome.

Cheers 8) Julie

Hi, Julie!

Congratulations on your new rig. Hope your adventures begin soon! The wife and I are currently driving from SoCal to Indiana. Yesterday we climbed over the Colorado Rockies and just love the freedom and maneuverability the B190 offers :D
Just exited the Eisenhower tunnel and had to take a quick pic. While flat towing a Ford Fiesta no less ;)
