Bonair Oxygen fiberglass Private Seller

3 months ago Trailer for Sale  Loon Lake, WA 1999 Views 2 Watching
Location: Loon Lake, WA
Price: $12,000

It is with a heavy heart that I am listing my 2002 Bonair Oxygen for sale. This awesome trailer is in great condition and needs nothing. Be prepared to deal with all the admirers that will appear wherever you go as it truly is a stunning fiberglass trailer. Only 77 of these were produced by the Bonair company in Quebec. They are very rare but parts for the mechanics and appliances are readily available off the shelf. I am asking 12,000 US. The trailer is located in Spokane Wa but I am heading to Las Vegas in the next week or two so if you want it delivered along the way that is a possibility. Steve

Steve,

If you need a place to stop for the night, send me a PM. We are near Gardnerville, NV, in Wellington. Very easy to get from here to 95 south toward Las Vegas. We have full hookups and plenty of room.

Thanks, we usually come down through Montana on the 15 straight into Vegas. Of course making that trip at least twice a year for the past 20 plus years we have went every way you can imagine lol. I'm heading down to check on my property and deliver some stuff for my kid. I offered to deliver because I know how spread out fiberglass trailer folks are.

Saw it at Dash Point SAFE gathering. Definitely a nice trailer. As stated earlier, these are a work of art.

Yes we were at Quartzsite this year. The chilly weather there as well as 2 weeks of rain on a recent trip have played large parts in my decision to sell. When we got it it was for quick trips between our lake place in eastern Washington to our house in Boulder City. However my daughter got a job in Vegas and is borrowing our Vegas house for her and our 3 granddaughters. Funny how things change. Either we stay up north for the winter or we find something big enough to spend a few weeks in at a time. I love to help my child but it sure puts a crimp in things.

Thank you, I am still in awe of her every time I see her. A very sexy trailer.

Steve Hammel, my first reaction was, "No!" But I understand. Life changes. What a beautiful little rare trailer...And really, "new" in comparison to a sticky. Only 17 years? In great shape. Both condition-wise and the trailer's shape, which is unique among trailers. I sincerely hope your trip to LasVegas goes well, and that your sale goes equally well when you get a buyer. Best to you. It was great meeting you (both & pups) and seeing your Oxygen at the Dash Point SAFE. Hope we cross paths again someday. "K" Kathleen & Paul Kai in Seattle

Should sell fast. Interested buyers need to be in contact now.

Thanks Kai, We'll still be around just in a bigger, fancier more comfortable, not as easy to tow trailer. Hopefully whoever buys it will still attend rallies to show her off.

I hope so. It pains me to go through the process. Our problem isn't so much the funds we just don't have the room for a classic finned boat, a pontoon boat, numerous wheeled toys and a trailer. If I had the room I'd keep her. Maybe we could have a Northern Trailer and a Southern Trailer lol.

OMG you have my dream machine! LOVE the Oxygen! Any chance you want to trade for a 1999 16' Scamp? ;)

Thanks. LOL I think you know the answer to that. I had a Scamp and they fit my needs even less than the Oxygen.

If you had a really clean 21' Bigfoot I might think about it.

Steve, It's tricky when something so cool, and something we get so attached to, and something we won't be able to replace, does not serve the function we need from it. Function and art are best when working together, but conflicting when they don't. I have a number of things that have no practical value for me, but that I won't let go of because they are unique in some way. For instance, I have a lot of old mechanical clocks, but they sit on the wall unwound because I look at the digital clock for the information I need. I just sold a 700 Raptor that was in perfect condition and very fun to ride, but it sat most of the time as I took the Jeep to go off road. I have a delightful old Mercedes 300 SD diesel in remarkable condition and low miles. It will be gone soon to. As cool as it is, I just don't use it. Funny too, when things like those leave, I hardly ever miss them. Not having to maintain them, and not having the clutter, has a lot of value in itself. I feel just a bit more free each time I check one of those things off the list.

You are so right. Plus my brother passed from agent orange complications 4 years ago, both of my parents passed last spring and my Sis just passed yesterday after fighting cancer for the past couple years. We were a lifer Army family and moved every 2 years. Growing up we were never allowed to accumulate stuff. As I've aged I've become somewhat of a hoarder lol. Everything I see that I want I buy. Now I'm kind of in a contemplative mood. If my wife would enjoy our trips better in a more comfortable trailer I'm going to try and do that for her.

Posted by Raspy (2 months ago)

Steve, I'm with you on being more comfortable. At some point, I don't need to get out and change the world, or put up with discomfort, just so that I can travel or camp. If your wife has an easier and more comfortable trip, she'll have more fun and want to go more. Now, for me, making trips fun and easy is the way to go. I do minimal planning, we do lots of spur of the moment activities, no marathon driving days unless we have decided to take the next day off, and we enjoy spending time in the trailer, as well as out sightseeing. I enjoy tinkering with the systems and making small improvements. Us making this change seems odd too. Giving up an Oliver! But finding something that suits us a bit better, or will be more fun, or will open the door to longer, more comfortable trips, or trips to places that are difficult for the Oliver to get to, are all good things. For us, the HQ19 offers the best of both worlds. It is a luxury apartment, like and Airstream, sitting on a heavy duty chassis with independent, off road suspension. Maybe I'm just spoiled, but if it opens more possibilities and makes trips better, it is better. Having said all of that, a little bit of doubt is slowing my progress at getting it ready to sell. But I can hardly wait for the new one! Sheesh. And, it's becoming abundantly clear that we don't have forever. It may sound a bit morbid, but one of my old cousins used to say: "I don't buy green bananas." Not sure what his take was on eating dessert first. Sorry for your recent losses.

Steve, What model is it? I know you mentioned length of 19' but is that hitch to bumper or the box? Also, what appliances does it have? Specifically, heat and a/c? Thanks, Marian

As all fiberglass campers are measured it is 19' from the tongue to the back of the camper. There is no air conditioner. Oxygens came with catalytic heaters. The flexible rubber line is still there but the heater is not.

Great news Steve I new your cool two tone trailer would sell quickly , that buyer has one of very few rv's that appreciate in value. All the best findingyour perfect fit trailer,Keep Roaming Ralph.

Ralph did you ever sell your "Son's" Oxygen?

Posted by Ralph L (2 months ago)

Haven’t as yet installing washroom in the very front , notch in rear bed might have helped with swinging legs in and out as I find this difficult as well. Your situation has parallels to many my wife and I camp in a 32 foot fifth wheel towing a lake boat behind. Comfort trumps coolness. I enjoy my riv and oxygen alone. Tried to compromise once by mounting a fifth wheel hitch in an 04 srt 10 viper truck single cab but she wouldn’t ride in that either. Happy wife happy life.
