My RV, the LiliPad - Our Prime Years

The LiliPad

The Lily Pad was a 26' 1999 Class C Fleetwood Tioga motorhome, Ford E-450 chassis, Triton V-10 engine with 53k miles, purchased in August 2007.

I loved the floor plan with the entertainment center over the cockpit. There was a pull-out bunk drawer just underneath that and I converted it to a storage drawer. The double bed is a walk-around and I have two hanging closets.

She came with a few extras and add-ons:
  • Banks exhaust system
  • Backup monitor
  • HWH hydraulic levelers
  • Fantastic Fan
  • New Pergo┬« flooring
  • New carpet in cockpit and bedroom

Since then I have added/upgraded:
  • New leaf springs
  • Bilstein shocks
  • Rear air bags
  • KWH stationary auto satellite dish
  • Full solar system [w/photos]
  • New tires
  • LCD TV in living & bedroom
  • Rear brakes
  • New toilet
  • New microwave
  • Wireless doorbell
  • Propane Extend-a-stay valve
  • Catalytic heater & inside connections
  • Transmission Temp Gauge

I sold my motorcycle and little trailer and now pull a 2000 4WD Suzuki Grand Vitara, purchased used in March 2008. The "toad" (or towed) is now appropriately named Polliwog.

I use a Roadmaster Sterling All-Terrain tow bar which has been wonderful and use a Brake Buddy Vantage for brake assistance.
