we have a coachman? that caught fire in engine bay area, I think we need to sell, but family wants me to rewire it, anyone have info on factory wiring diagrams for something like this, the man that converted it spent like 120k, it has hardwood floors and full size roper fridge, dual roof a/c, any suggestions would be nice.
I can send pictures or post them here if someone wants them, this could be a nice rig.
I think it is 40 foot, sorry, I can get all the info you want, this is just not my thing, I prefer outboards and hotrods...LOL, thanks again.

Welcome Mark,

Allthough we have some pretty smart folks here, it's sometimes hard to stick our heads into a different beast other than busses.

I'm sure that your wireing is pretty basic. Maybe if you can tell us exactly what you are looking to repair, it may be possible for someone

to steer you in a good direction.

  I never though that Coachman made a 40 ft Motorhome in 68?

I ain't exactly sure what it is but from the pics I'd guess it's a 35' er not 40' ! But still it looks like a nice unit with lots of potenial! (sp?). The headlights make it look like Bluebirds and the sides look like it could even be a "wonderlodge" with a face lift!  Huh ? Come on Bus Wizards wake up let's figure this out!

I agree with BK.  Sure looks like a Bluebird to me.  Did you see a Coachman emblem on something?  Ought to be a nameplate or logo on something somewhere, it seems. Where is the generator for 110 volts located?  The Bluebirds I have seen has them behind the front bumper; don't know if this always holds true.

Bluebirds in the late 1960s probably would have been based off of front engine school bus chassis.  This looks more like a regular coach than a school bus.

folks, just so ya'll know, the man that has the paperwork, says that it claims this is a 68 GMC, Texas title and papers, and it does appear that we are going to sell/move the bus, I need my space back. and lets not try to kid anyone, I don't have the time.

just so everyone knows, it does run, we drove it down the hiway about 15 miles to where it is sitting now. I think it will make a great bus, just needs to be rewired, and some T.L.C.

it's not a bus(transit or Highway)....likey a truck chassis with some brand of motorhome put on top of it.

It looks to be in fair shape but there isn;'t any 120k in that thing.

this seems to be turning intoo a bus for sale posting........which is VERBOTEN!!!!

you know it does have that appearance, which is not the intent at all, and will no longer be discussed.

But to clear up some issues and to set the record straight, I located the texas title, it says 68 GMC  Coach, now where the boys got the "coachman" I will never know sorry for that, it is 35 foot long by the tape, the headlights have been redone with some kind of aftermarket kit, and all I really am interested in is a wiring diagram for a 68 GMC, and I'll worry about the rest, any suggestions on diagram is all I am after, sorry for the confussion, thats what I get for getting involved in something I know nothing about.

as my granddad used to say, "Never play another man's game."
