    The attempt to sell a luxury motor home seized from the former Dixon comptroller has hit a speed bump.

    Only one bid was made for the vehicle, but it fell short of the $1 million minimum selling price.

    Rita Crundwell was the comptroller of Dixon, Ill. until the town fired her in April. Crundwell is accused of diverting $53 million in city funds for her own use, including horse breeding. Last week, NBC Chicago reported that Crundwell's 400 horses are set to be sold by the end of September.

    The motor home's features included five king-size beds and five television sets.

    If Crundwell is convicted, proceeds from these sales will go back to Dixon.
