Congratulations Peabody. I just sent you a PM but I can see I am late...again...

I like those coaches. They have sold oak cabinets (not this paper based crap) and are built with real quality and craftsmanship.

Great job as it looks like it is in pretty good shape.

What kind of engine does it have? I think they came with 3208 CAT power. That is a solid engine. Just make sure that all filters and fluids are changed and check on the CAT forum here at IRV2 for other tips.

Good for you. I'm glad you finally found the right rig. Searching gets really old after a while. It's a bit like using an on line dating service

She has a 3208 cat on a Gillig (spelling) chassis.Just recently been serviced because they were planning to take her to Arizona had she not sold this week.I was looking for a little newer but when I saw this coach and saw the condition she was in I knew she was mine before I stepped inside. I knew from the outside she would be in great condition inside.I wasn't disappointed in fact I wanted an oven and got two.For a coach with no slide there is ample room,every thing works,it's very clean, and doesn't smell like some I've looked at.I'm very pleased I found her. Hugs Peabody

Wow! Peabody she looks great! It's hard to believe that it's an '87.

Thank-You Dodger,
I feel real lucky to have found her.I'd been looking for a very long time and every thing I found was garbage.Now I'm in the process of redecorating her to suit my tastes. Hugs Peabody
