I wasn't the lowest lol there was a couple below me you have a nice coach there post photos for the guys I have some, but for me the 45ft are easier to sell so I don't make a hard run at the 40 ft coaches any longer.

People here on the board like the 35 and 40 ft but the buying public like the 45 footers a new breed of pups so to speak

I'll try the photos later tonight. I did not pay anywhere near the asking price but only time will tell if I got a good buy.

For my wife and I - all the kids grown and no grands yet - a 40 ft is all I wanted.

Really a nice car, congratulations.  I always thought Angola did a quality conversion even though I have zero experience with them.  Went though the plant though, only thing was they were out of business and it had been converted to an antique mall, lol.

Beautiful bus!

Have you thought about the loose chairs hitting you in the back of the head in case of a hard stop, like for a deer crossing in front of you, or some car cutting you off ?  Are you able to fasten them for driving?

My 5C came like that with a loose table and chairs. I didn't feel good about it. I built a dinette that is firmly attached to the floor and side wall.

The thought went thru my mind but I don't think they have moved yet. So if they don't they can stay.

My dinette has free standing chairs and they have never moved. I have made a few panic stops. The table is securely fastened to the wall however. I still have the shield behind the driver seat head. I guess the passengers are on their own. lol.

The people who ran Angola Coach now operate a sales, repair, remodel facility under the name of Panterra Coach in Angola, Indiana.
