This is a “Busnut’s “ Bus. It was built from an Entertainer Coach that was owned by Senator’s Coach in Alabama, formerly from Corinth, Mississippi. It was a good solid shell that had been completely stripped down rebuilt by previous owner, who put everything in he could think of, modeling it after the big Coach Builders like Marathon and Country Coach. It was built to be able to boondock for a week. When it has a full battery bank in it, it should run for 3 days without a charge.
There is so much in this bus that you need to be a person that is pretty handy or know someone who is. Like a boat, something is always needing some small adjustment or repair. This bus is a one of a kind that has probably had a total of $300,000.00 and countless hours put into it.
This is a very comfortable rig to be in.
What it needs right now:
1. Repair to the exhaust system. (Muffler should be replaced.)
2. Troubleshooting on wiring to hook up temperature and oil pressure gauges in dash.
3. Completion of our work to replace worn bay door parts. (All are functional but could be restored.)
4. Roof should probably be recoated within the next year. (Not a rubber roof, but it is aluminum so it would need to be power washed and recoat rolled on. No membrane replacement necessary.)
5. Backup camera needs to be repaired or replaced.
I’m sure there are a few other small items but not much.
This bus is ready for a new enthusiastic owner. We hate to give it up but after full timing for 3 years, we’re looking to downsize just a bit.
It is currently registered and insured.
If you want to buy this bus, you will have to come and pick it up with your own insurance. Will be glad to help with the arrangements and to make sure that it is road worthy and safe but it is too big to ship or tow.
This is a great Coach that has been partially restored and is in excellent condition for its age. We have not had any problem with parks refusing us due to age, because the coach looks so good.
Full payment is required in form of cashier’s check. Sold as it, no warranty or refunds.
Currently located in San Antonio, TX.
