                                         PETERBILT 2001 MID-ROOF MODEL 387


(VIN: 1XP7D09XX1D559051)
This truck was originally an over-the-road hauler on lease from Doonan Peterbilt, Wichita, Kansas. It was equipped as follows:
Cummins ISM, 350/400 horsepower engine
Three-stage Jacobs engine-brake
“Davco Fuel Pro 382” fuel filter/water separator
“Meritor” Wabco Air Dryer with heater
“Puradyn” bypass oil filter (filters down to 1 micron).
Eaton-Fuller FR14210B 10-speed manual transmission
Dana tandem rear axles
“Lincoln Quicklub” automatic lubrication system with progressive metering valves.
Air Ride cab and adjustable Air Ride seats.
Right and Left 100-gallon aluminum fuel tanks under cab (with Peterbilt locking caps).
Alcoa 22.5X8.25 aluminum wheels.

After 606,000 miles in 5 years, it was returned to Doonan and, in 2006 at our request, was converted to an RV hauler as follows: Singled, Doonan manufactured bed with “Rhino Liner” top surface, Custom iridescent paint on finders and trim, side storage compartments, thirteen-hundred-pound solid steel tail-plate for ride stability, 2-inch hitch receiver welded through tail-plate. “TrailerSaver” 32k Air-Suspension Hitch (model TSLB2H) (height adjusted with truck-air from cab with dash mounted raise/lower valve and pressure gauge). Sliding window in rear of cab. “Brakesmart Electric Brake Control” (12v trailer-braking current is proportional to truck air-braking pressure). Bargman 7-pin trailer receptacle. “Gear Master II” (gear availability and synchronization indicator).

When Doonan’s conversion was completed, we registered this truck in Texas as a motor home (passenger vehicle under 6000 lbs.) – no DOT inspection required. To meet (and exceed) the Texas motorhome registration requirements, we added the following items: Two 20-amp 120-volt electrical circuits with multiple receptacles, 30-amp Marinco shore-power receptacle, General Electric 950-watt microwave oven, 3-gallon fresh and grey water tanks. Small sink with faucet and automatic pump. Koolatron (model P20) 12-volt refrigerator, Thetford (735 MSD) Porta-Potii with floor attachment brackets under the single-wide bed (toilet never used), Kyocera 150-watt solar-panel with Specialty Concepts 15-amp solar controller. “Pressure Pro” 16-position tire-pressure monitor with external antenna. In 2014, we installed six new “General” tires which presently have less than 12,400 miles on them.

Reason for selling: After twenty-some years of full-time RV traveling, physical limitations are catching up with us and, regretfully, we find it necessary to give up our Peterbilt hauler. It is located at the Escapees North Ranch RV Park near Congress, Arizona. Presently 649915 miles on odometer. Clear Texas Title. Price: $45,000.
