Buy My RV... get ya some Adventure(r)

Hey, if I'm breaking some rules posting RV ads, just delete me. Just wanted to post my humorous (to me) RV ad that will likely alienate half of you anyhow.

https://harrisburg.craigslist.org/rv...554154171.html

Don't dream your life... Live your dreams

- Don't like traffic on your commute to work? Avoid it, sleep IN the parking lot.


- What is work/a job you ask? I get it, you're one of the Millennial snowflakes still living in your Momma's basement. Don't be put off, it's time to move into YOUR OWN PLACE and I can help guide your FINANCING using GO FUND ME.


- Susie (that's her name) as in Susie the Floosie / Runaround Sue... Susie's taken us all over the US and Canada shackin' up in more places than a cheap hooker. She's disease free and lookin' for somebody new to love on 'er.


- How's she run? Well, Susie isn't your Grandpa's RV. She's powered by a 454 Chevy with a Banks chip and runs like a pack of Kenyans on crystal meth.


- The environmentally conscious can rest easy. If you have the testicular fortitude, it has been noted that she's capable of 30+ mpg while reaching terminal velocity descending from atop the Rocky Mountains if you don't bother the brakes. That's the ULTIMATE HYBRID experience, rolling green while providing an unadulterated adrenaline rush.


- Don't be irresponsible, use good rubber ON your RV, not just IN it. This rig has been fitted with new Hankook Hoops.


- Driving at night? You can run in stealth mode or make use of the auxiliary 7200 lumen "Light Cannon" on the front. This baby is so bright it will leave ET thinking that he Phoned Home.


- Staying in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, California (or anywhere else pot is now legal)? Be excited, the 6500 Watt Onan genset is capable of running 65 100W grow lights and comes with an ultra quiet exhaust system. This genset and exhaust will draw less attention to your RV than the screaming coming from this party on wheels.


- What's a party without the Chica's? Think they had it good in the 70's rocking their Shaggin Wagons? Don't feel left out, RV's have a reputation. If the boats a rockin' don't cha come knockin' (unless you are looking to come aboard for a ride).


- A fan of Breaking Bad and looking to camp Heisenburg style? This unit comes with three premium gas burners and I'll even toss in a free mask.


- This Millennial Motorcoach comes with Genuine Shabby Chic interior and exterior as well. This was a custom job, with over two years in the making.


- Where will she roll? We've been up and down the Rockies and all over the desert southwest, but really Susie will take you anywhere you want. I've heard that it's popular for Millennial's to roll from one Anti-Trump Rally to another, may as well do it in absolute comfort and style knowing that Susie comes with DUAL roof air conditioning units ensuring that No Snowflake will melt.

Don't cut me short... I said 30 PLUS mpg, not 27. You must have chickened out and touched the brakes if you only got 27 mpg.

Clay,

With all due respect, I'm going to let this one go, wishing that one day we might meet in person and hit it off like I've done with so many others on this site. It perplexes me how you would know the shape of my transmission without knowing much of anything regarding the usage and/or care of the RV, but I digress. If your career has been in the mechanical field it is very possible that you could teach me much as I would consider myself a simple "shade tree" hack.

Regardless, it doesn't seem that I care much anymore as I took a deposit on the unit today and plan to have it out of my driveway within the next week.

Here's to hoping maybe we can meet up and ride sometime this summer.

Susie's been to the chalk monument and we didn't even know they existed until a few months ago? That's just wrong.

Never heard it referred to as the "Chalk Monument" but rather "Monument Rocks" until I looked it up just now. Same place, a bit desolate, but beautiful at sunset.

Matt, you probably drove it so the "chicken strips" were gone from the tires in the first 500 miles! I bet you could make this baby hum on a downhill run.

All the best.
