Luxury Motorhomes for Sale
Luxury Motorhomes – The Only Way to Travel
There are many indulgent ways to travel, but most require you to put yourself on someone else’s schedule and share your experience with random strangers. Imagine the pleasure of setting your own pace, lingering in appealing locales and quickly exiting less desirable ones with no worry about tickets, schedules or security checkpoints. Such travel is available to you today with a luxury motorhome.
While its ancestors were sometimes boxy and cramped vehicles sharing much in common with standard buses, today’s luxury motorhomes offer spacious interiors in a vast selection of floor plans with standard features including slide-out walls, king-sized beds, porcelain floor tiles, designer fixtures, ultrasuede furniture and high-end electronics. Amenities such as a washer/dryer combination, full stove, microwave oven, satellite dish, electric awnings, side-by-side refrigerator and basement storage are also offered with most luxury motorhome models.
