Default 2006 Pleasure Way Plateau TS For Sale

We recently purchased a larger motorhome and, with sadness, it's time to sell our Pleasure Way. We have owned our Pleasure Way for three years and for most of its life it has been stored under cover when not in use. We are mature owners, non-smokers and, like the original owner, have taken meticulous care of our beloved Plateau TS. This RV is in pristine condition, inside and out--you will be hard-pressed to find a better cared for motorhome. We have the original manuals for all appliances, all receipts, brochures and maintenance/service records for the entire history of the vehicle.

This motorhome is fully self-contained and very economical to operate--averages a documented 22 miles per gallon. Perfect for 2 people, easy to drive and parks in a regular parking space. This is a very hard to find unit and comes with many extras, such as two-100W roof-mounted solar panels, two newer Lifeline 220 Ahr AGM house batteries, a Trik-L-Start to maintain the chassis battery, Scan Gauge II to monitor engine performance in real time and much more--for further details, see "Recent Upgrades," below.

This van is a real head turner--don't consider it if you dislike strangers giving compliments on how great it looks. Seriously, this is not an exaggeration! SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY.

Namaste, I hope your Plateau finds an appreciative new home. It's obviously a well-cared for rig. Great job listing all the amenities. If I hadn't found our LTV FreeSpirit last year, I'd seriously consider this rig.

Thanks for you interest in our PW, but it will likely be sold either tomorrow or possibly on Thursday to a local buyer. All the best in your search.

I know you sold this Pleasure-Way, but we have the exact same vehicle and are planning to make nearly identical upgrades. Were wondering if we could pick your brain on any tips or vendor suggestions. Did you do the solar addition yourself or have it done somewhere?

Many thanks,
