You need a complete mechanical looksee on even nice restored coaches.You must know the history on a restored coach…..did they know what they were doing? Did they paint lips on the pig?……that kinda stuff.
I was involved in completely restoring this coach inside with a Royale center galley, twin bed floorplan all new cabinets in 1995. Paint too and it’s still awesomeThe interior? Neutral earthtone colors is very relaxingthe galley has an induction cook top and a double sink with a hideaway coverwith a sit down Seperate shower stall and twin beds this was the most popular floorplan….which is why it was copied even back thenthis coach has 1 or the 4 Dakota digital dash clusters we modified to a GMC back in 95’….pretty cool back then and still pretty cool today!There are newer, nicer systems today but, we were on the stick way back then!
Hey but all this has nothing to do with the mechanical condition of this 45 year old basic structure, drive train, braking, etc.
That’s why the coach is getting the mechanical review paid for BY the buyer…….we work on his side to evaluate where this vintage matching ismechanivally speaking……i mean you have a new house surveyed, a boat survey is a must for investors……a survey mechanically on one of these goes a long way to give you a truer picture help you make an informed purchase
I know this coach thru its past 2 owners who loved their coach, I’ve got my OWN blood, sweat and tears in to this restoration and new it once again need to get all the new thing we know help in reliability and performance.
And even good condition survivors need the same look over to find issues near the end of their viable life’s envelop.
We’ve also had great interest in mods like the Serpantine belt systems like all new cars have…… There’s a reason!A quad bag rear suspension so you won’t need a flat bed tow truck and more stable towing…..FiTech fuel injustion?is a huge help…..a single aluminum fuel tanks gets rid of those nasty metal tanks…..off shelf aluminum radiator ..all new brakes…new dash and dash AC……..yep pretty much everyone wants it all! Some bugs to work out and with our supporters helping us all that will yield a superior , reliabl9e power plant and a good friend for the road.
Many are picking these coaches up and all want a trouble free reliable performance from their machine…..theres more selecting a purchase of one of these than say a 2010 Toyota…..so much to consider and so many thing that can put you on the side of the road….do yourself a big favor and have all that stuff checked out BEFORE you hit the road
