2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara excellent toad with true 4 wheel drive is available (see below).

Sales talk: The 30' twin bed offers an extremely open, spacious and flexible floor plan from front to back, where the three large bedroom windows provide plenty of light and three outside views to the rear and to each side. The twin beds serve nicely for lounging or reading and can be separated from the living room by the door to the shower (across the hall from the toilet and sink), which opens across the hallway to create a private space in the bedroom.

Our LD has been substantially upgraded since we purchased it in 2010, based on ideas and recommendations from other LD owners. This unit offers exceptional value--the cost of improvements alone including parts and labor is well over $15,000. We are selling due to medical issues that preclude any significant travel.


The 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara toad has an automatic transmission and true 4 wheel drive (manual low high transfer case). It is a 2.5 liter V6, in excellent condition mechanically, inside and out (with the exception of rock chips on front bumper), and runs perfectly. Color is pearl white and gray. The Grand Vitara is used as a toad by a number of LD group members as an alternative to a heavy 4WD vehicle such as a Jeep. It tows beautifully and effortlessly behind the LD. Odometer is 82,038 miles. It has a Road Master baseplate and US Gear braking system that goes with the Road Master Falcon 2 tow bar and corresponding US Gear braking system components on the LD. Asking price including the base plate for towing and US Gear components is $6,500 or best reasonable offer. Photos are with LD photos (see link above--copy and paste).

The cabinet between the two chairs turns into a table by lifting the portion of the cabinet the edge of which rests on the floor. It locks into place and is supported by a leg that folds out from underneath it. In addition, there is another extension, kept inside the cabinet that makes the table larger. So there is the surface of the cabinet itself, the portion that extends up and out, and another extension stored inside the cabinet. The table in its extended form

is not shown in the photos on flickr but please be sure to look at them. Please let us know if you have other questions or if you need us to send a photo to your email or phone. Thanks.Peter and Diana pbateman9@hotmail.com
