Ever Wonder What A Million Plus Dollars Will Buy You In An RV
I had just one project to complete today. That was setting the proper air pressure in each tire on Elvira.
Out came my air compressor. This was one of the first things I purchased when we bought our first rig and I’ve never regretted my decision. I’m absolutely fanatical about keeping the proper air pressure in Elvira’s tires so it does get used frequently. This morning it got another work out and now all tires are at their proper pressure.
Ever wonder what a million plus dollars will get you in an RV?
This is a Newell, a coach that when new usually sells for well over a million dollars, often closer to two million. I’m not sure what year this is or the current asking price because it is not listed on the Motorhomes web site. My guess would be based on others listed it is probably around a 2005 or 2006 and would probably be listed at something close to $200,000.
The entry door. But how to get in since there is no door handle. It is hard to see but facing the door, on the left is a silver button the size of a small button.
Press the button and schamz the door opens just like the door on a bus. It is air activated. Dig those stairs leading in. Oh yeah, not your every-day-run-of-the-mill coach.
The driver’s cockpit. A real wood grain dashboard. What a view from the driver’s seat.
Looking back toward the bedroom. This is definitely a coach for two. The table is so small. The kitchen counter is likewise. But did you notice the special space for your wine glasses!
A small two burner induction cooktop.
This is a shower I could learn to love.
The back bedroom.
As one would expect of a coach of this caliber the fit and finish is impeccable. However, it is definitely not my cup of tea – even if I had the money. Since I never will, that settles that. But it was fun seeing how the jet set goes RV’ing.
Time for lunch.
This is the restaurant all the locals recommended.
This is Dolli’s Diner.
What a down to earth restaurant with a family friendly feel. The food did not disappoint either. Ms Barbara had a Reuben sandwich and I had a genuine Cuban sandwich. Both sandwiches were delicious and we rated them a genuine 5 stars. We’ll hopefully be able to return one more time before we leave this area.
That was our day from the asphalt jungle on The Road of Retirement. We have the whole parking lot to ourselves so there is no problem with social distancing! We’re keeping busy, shopping, sightseeing, doing odds and ends, watching our favorite shows on DISH and of course playing Mexican Train. We’re home, in our house, and very comfortable. Life is good.
I leave you with this sign I noticed when at Dolli’s Diner.
Hope you had a great day. Thanks for your company. Catch you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.
See you on down the road!
