Default The Great Escape is for sale 1990 SP36

After long and painful deliberation, we have decided that our Bird is just too small for our full timing needs. Sharlene and I have made the decision that a large 5th wheel will be a better option. Anyone that saw our Bird at the Winstar Rally will agree tht this is a "turn-key" coach...not a "fixer-upper". The new owner of this coach will be buying a Bird that is ready to go with reliability. As most of you know, we purchased our Bird last August. Since then, we have driven it 4,000 trouble free miles in 10 states. Any potential buyer will have a thousand question but I will list a few pertinent details.
