There is a common misperception that a Prevost conversion is unaffordable. When comparing a Prevost conversion most wouldn't consider, let's say a 5 year old traditional coach. They need to realize much older conversations are commonly better coaches than much new traditional coaches.

That's right. We paid less for our bus than many of our friends paid for their newer class A RVs. But one thing to keep in mind is that maintenance can be expensive on a bus. For instance, if you need to replace the house battery bank, we had to replace 12 instead of the 4 our DP used. Hubby also does his own engine maintenance/repair while I take care of the electronics.

So it's easier and cheaper to run a bus if you are handy.

Nice- I viewed photos on your coach on Mr Olivers' site. Has Paul retired, yet?

Great minds think alike.



Ours is a 32" that fits the window frame and is held in place by the shade. We used to have a DVD home theater system but I replaced that last year with a Roku and a sound bar.

I don't know. I still see his business listing coaches on Ebay but he could have someone else running it for him. When we bought this bus, he had recently married, so that's why he didn't do much business for a while.

Beautiful coach. There is something about a bus conversion that makes people stop and look. The biggest baddest DP's can come and go in a campground, but when a well maintained bus pulls in, it just catches attention.
Very nice April Whine!
