2009 Forest River Lexington GTS 255DS

We purchased our RV a couple of months ago and realized it's just not the right fit for us to go "full time". She is in excellent condition with no issues. To go full time, we need ALOT more room, but it's perfect for someone else. Alot of interior storage and good storage outside. NO accidents. All the upgrades were performed in Sept/October of this year and our neighbors were in awe! We are the 3rd owners, but previous owners cared for this Rig with the highest regard. She drives excellent, no pull. We are firm on our price. You won't go wrong, as we take excellent care and put alot of $$ into her to bring her up to our standards. She is stored in cover storage locally under 24 hr security with small outings as to not let her just "sit". NO roof damage or leaks. Without Warranty: $51,299. We carry 3 warranties with full bumper to bumper coverage, Gap Coverage and Tires/Wheels for an additional $5400.

Well done. Am in processing of trying to sell my 2013 Georgetown 38 ft Class A in Florida with three slideouts and would be interested in possibly discussing a trade?? Wife wants something she would be more comfortable driving. Lived in it full time while I was working in New Orleans area last year.

PM me here.
