Rare Prevost/Peterbuilt RV ser#001 For Sale

This is what I'd want if i had the funds.

The Original Serial Number #001 Kingsley Coach for Sale $99,900

I think it would the best of both worlds.
Maintenance ease of a truck chassis, room of Prevost.

This is a 1990 Peterbilt tractor joined to an actual 1985 Prevost XL motor coach.
This rig was hand-built for the original founder of Kingsley Coach who had owned businesses in both the trucking and motor coach industries. It was back in the early 1990s when he saw the Prevost bus body with front end damage sitting at our bus garage and said:

"I want to put a Peterbilt on the front of that thing and make it an RV!"

It is powered by a 400 big cam Cummins engine with a 5-speed Allison HT754 Automatic transmission. It has 2x 100-gallon fuel tanks, aprox 150 gallon fresh water tank, new 5000 wat power inverter, new batteries, 2 central a/c units and one roof top a/c unit, 3 heaters, 2 flat screen TVs with built in DVD players and much more. The interior has been recently upgraded as can be seen in the photo and is in very nice condition. There are many more details as can be seen in the following photos.

Interesting marriage of a HDT and Prevost body. Apparently the truck frame and coach frame were welded together near the rear of the coach body as the coach does not have the pass-though storage common with these high-end motor coaches. It also has the tag-axle of the coach mfgrs frame instead of the truck's dual-tandem axles. Of course the deletion of the rear-engine freed-up more storage space to account for the removed storage from eliminating the pass-through storage.

Hard to tell on the pass thru, it still has the access doors that the pass thru would have had. Difficult to tell where the frame runs thru that area.
