My Little RV
1986 Winnebago LeSharo
1986 Winnebago LeSharo. Has a manual 4 speed transmission powered by a 4 cylinder Diesel - 2.0 litre engine. Turbo Charged. It developes a whopping 100 horse power. Gets 23 miles per gallon. And will do 60 MPH on the flat. Up long hills it drops to about 57 or 58 MPH.
Why did I get it? Because I could afford it! I couldn't afford the GMC Motorhome! So, this was home for eight months!
I've taken it for two 100 mile trips. And it drives like an almost new vehicle. The three owners before me took exceptional care of this motorhome! Many thanks to Larry and Elie for breaking her in just right!
As you can see in the floor plan - very compact. From behind the drivers seat to the rear is about 17 feet. I haven't measured it yet!
Photo toward rear from just behind the drivers seat. On the Right - beige door is closet. Mirrored door is bathroom. At the back is the four seat dinnette. On the Left - Wood panel door to fridge, above that is the two burner propane stove. And, above that, is the microwave. The two seats you see are behind the driver and passenger seats. They make into one bed. The second bed is from the dinning area at the rear. I'll be sleeping up front. My two Siamese cats will join me!! They'll find their own sleeping areas.
This photo shows some of the storage space in the RV. Above, left and right sides have small cabinets. You can also see the rear shelf used for storage. Small plastic baskets keep items from falling on the floor while driving. Above the microwave on the left will be dry goods storage.
The regridgerator is like a small office cooler. Won't hold much. I need to find an inexpensive small freezer. I don't like the $700.00 prices I've seen for them!!
This area will become my office. The desktop computer will go on the floor with the monitor, keyboard and mouse on the "Desk". Along with some other items I need. I'll have photos of this arrangement later.
Sad to say - it's now sold. And I feel like I've lost an old friend. If I had been able to get a job - I'd have kept it and used it. I hope the new owner takes to heart the previous owners. And what they did to keep her in very good shape.
