Many years ago when I lived in CA I went to several Eagle rallies including some at Quartzite and I also belonged to the Eagles International group publication.  There was one couple that had a converted 35 ft. Eagle and as i recall it was called a Suburban model. It was a two axle vehicle. Only a few were ever manufactured. The wife was the secretary for several years I believe. I do not know if the publication is still in existence, but if it is it is a good group to belong to.

Yes Richard, this was the Eagles International meet. They are a good group.  I had met some in person and knew some through online activities, but I got to put names, faces, and buses together this past weekend and it was great! I am not yet a member of the club but they welcomed me in and made me feel at home (even though we were riding in Don's Country Coach instead of my Eagle). In my opinion, anyone who owns and Eagle should belong to this group. They are a great bunch and are very helpful to each other and to anyone else in the hobby.

Yeah, the single axle is called a Suburban. That's right.

See Rusty's post for more information about Eagles International. He is the new president-elect of the club.

That two axle Eagle belongs to Lee and Donna Thomas.  The live in Lee's Summit, MO.

I can't say what the model is, but it is a 102 wide, 35 foot.  As was mentioned, it was made as motorhome chassis and had the factory raised roof as I recall. Lee bought it new and had it converted.  I think he said that he picked it up at the factory.  It is a great bus.,

BTW, we are still at the rally site and I can't find any significant signs of rust piles Wink

Don and I were wondering today if there was still anyone out there, Jim. Is there anyone left there with you?

It was my pleasure, believe me! You guys just need to start making plans to make the next one in Branson. Hopefully lots of more Eastern buses will be able to show up.

Will, I enjoyed your site. Pretty cool to have an author among us. I'll check out some more of your titles later.

Thanks Songman, it's really my pleasure to have found this site. Unfortunately, it seems now I spend more time reading posts than I do applying my trade LOL. That 'Total Time Logged In' thing is a real eye opener Shocked Grin

Hi Dale.

There are three of us left, and the O'Neills are leaving tomorrow.  We will be heading to Yuma on Friday.

Thanks for the great photos!

Got to meet up with LarryH today and will have coffee with RJ(Bob) Evans tomorrow. 

Been a fun week!

The single axle Eagles (Suburban) were mostly 40 footers. Mine is in my avitar. There were some 35's but mostly 40's.
