Forest River Lexington 255 DS GTE

2005 Forest River Lexington Grand Touring Edition 255DS $29,900
We’ve had this RV two years and have decided to go back to a travel trailer. It is in very good condition.
We are the second owners. The pictures show a dinette, but we still have the jackknife sofa, which we can re-install if the buyer desires.
In addition to short weekends away locally, we took this Motorhome to Yellowstone last year: Atlanta, West Memphis, Wichita, Denver, Cheyenne, Rock Springs, Yellowstone, Cody, over the very high Bighorn Mountains to Buffalo, Devil’s tower, Custer SD, Yankton SD, Sioux City, Omaha, and then wound our way back to Atlanta. This year we went to Marion Illinois, Columbus IN, on to Bradford PA, and back to Atlanta via Skyland Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway. On both trips we towed our Jeep Patriot on a Master-Tow dolly. The Motorhome performed like a trooper all the way on both trips.
The unit is in the Atlanta, GA area.

We are asking $29,900
