Sweet!!!

But I would have re-designed them spiral stairs, looks like a broken neck waiting to happen (for someone clumsy as I am).

Am I the only one that has trouble on a spiral staircase.  Probably doesn't help that I have size 13 turd kickers.

Hey BK, I really like the look of this unit. Back in the 80's I had a 38' Barth and I liked the side entrance. I love the idea of having a bus but never cared for the entrance up front. After seeing this I know now I will put it in the side. The layout inside this unit also look nice. I've decided to get an MCI unless you will me one of your Sentra's LOL.

Great looking wood work. Not sure about the entrance location, might be great though. And best of all it's an Eagle. Wink

Happy Trails,

Paul

did anyone also notice the Eagle with 3 slides for $100K.  wonder what the frame on that looks like?

on the center door bus, i do think having the copilot chair right there would be better.  sometimes.

Which does it have-white carpet or green carpet?  Looks great, but how much rust is in the walls and underneath that you can't see on this model 01 bus that is 40 years old?  Might be alot of rebuild work! Good Luck, TomC

If it is good as it looks in the pictures I would be almosy willing to ditch my Prevost and just buy one already converted. $70,000 doesn't seem to bad either.

TomC, they said they replaced bad tubing during the reconstruction. I know there are a lot of bad Eagles with rusted frames, but I also know of a few that are in great shape. There are also a lot of other brands that have their problems, they are old and worn out, kinda like me. Grin

Not all eagles had bad rust problems, mine had some rust in places but it was easily taken care of, mine has been taken apart, right to the metal walls including the floor completely out, my wife stepped into the bus and looked down at the ground lol. she gave me a look like she was trying to express how she felt about what had been the complete interior laying out in the yard.  But that was the only way to find any rust and take care of it.  I like the idea of the center entrance, it wouldn't take that much space out of a bay and would put the door squarely under an awning instead of beside it.  The pictures were confusing tho, one picture shows the entrance with different carpeting than the other, but that could have been taken at different times, don't know.

Beautiful Coach! The pictures have dates on them and it seems they took pictures before and after they put in new carpet. I don't believe I would put it white, but it's beautiful!
  Love the door too.

I may not have gone with white, but anything is better than the teal carpet!  Nice coach.
