Jerold & Marie purchased this pristine 1998-36' Safari Sahara with only 13,995. Miles!  This coach has been garaged most of its life.  The day it came in on trade I noticed how exceptional the exterior condition was, shiny, no scratches, and perfect!  I walked over and spoke to the previous original owners as they were moving out of it.  They dropped everything and told me they ordered it new back in 1997 and told me the largest engine available was a 250HP Cat which was a deal breaker for him.  He insisted on a 300HP Cat and they agreed and custom built it that way for them. They were not retired and from Alaska but kept this coach in the lower 48 stored in an indoor building near the Portland airport.  They would fly down and use it when they could and it worked great until they retired and decided to spend more time Rving.  They traded it in on a beautiful 45' Newmar Essex Quad Slide.  As I looked over this coach I could not believe how clean it was.  It also fit the parameters perfect for a few referrals  I had, one being Jerold and Marie. I sent out an e-mail to the group of buyers looking for a coach like this and Jerold and Marie showed up the next day and purchased it on the spot. He had his Ford Ranger outfitted to tow and headed home yesterday.  The maiden voyage will be in January out to visit their daughter on the east coast.  Congratulations Jerold & Marie, I cannot wait until you trade it in ;-)
