1979 Swinger Motorhome by Georgie Boy...FOR SALE, $9300
Everything in our family motorhome is very clean and in excellent working condition. We are the second owner and have owned the motorhome since 1989. It has only 24,000 miles on the original Dodge 440 hp engine and new front tires (because of age, not wear). The Swinger name on the exterior of the motorhome was carefully and completely removed many years ago because we felt it was not appropriate for our family.

These pictures will give you a visual tour and include information that will help you make an informed decision. Please email any questions you may have to Richard Ward at neweastside@hotmail.com or call me at 847-487-2555 in Island Lake, Illinois (Hwy 176 and the Fox River, 3711 Hale Lane, just east of the river) The motorhome is in our driveway.  
Asking $1200 for our 1989 Honda Elite 80 2-person motorscooter that fits on the custom rear deck.  A removable ramp allows the 180 pound scooter to be loaded by one person. The motorhome and the scooter may be purchased separately.

The relatively low 24,000 miles (avg. 1000 miles per year) could be a problem IF the vehicle was not regularly started and driven. We followed the professional advice of the dealer and manufacturer. The engine of this motorhome has always started easily and was operated approximately every month when it was not in use. Also the Onan Generator was operated on a regular basis.

This vehicle has never been in even a minor accident and the maintenance records are reasonably complete. The roof has recently been resealed with a heat reflecting coating. Also the caulking of all the windows has been removed and replaced with the recommended sealant from Crystal Valley RV. The main reason that older motorhomes lose their value, is if the roof and windows are not properly maintained.

Please call 847-487-2555 for an appointment to personally see the motorhome. It is in very good condition and you should not be disappointed.

Thank you for your interest...... Richard and Lydia Ward
