1980 Silver Eagle Bus Conversion
Our family business purchased this coach, converted it, and have been using it for traveling to trade shows for the last 10 years.
It has been impeccably maintained as I drove it to each corner of the U.S. spanning most of the summer months with my family inside.
There is nothing quite like traveling in your own 5 star hotel.
The conversion was tailored to our intended use, in that is has massive water, waste, and clothing storage facilities, and can be used for extensive dry camping. Other than that is is similar to many other conversions. Attention to detail is obvious throughout, it doesn't cost much to go first class when you have 320 square feet to work with. I hate to part with it, but we are down to one show a year and I would like someone else to enjoy it rather than seeing it sit.
If you have any questions please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 515-432-6794 and leave a msg. for me.
