This is a pretty special coach and we’ve been asked to do a pretty special renovation. The first part of this coaches life was spent as a mobile video studio for a TV station. It has an observation deck, had only one window and a double opening back door Stephen buys and sells antique furniture and wanted a vehicle to travel in, carry furniture in as well. A convertible bedroom to a shop was a must for him. Getting a drawing of the floorplan figured we first installed a full compliment of new “T” slider windows.
Next we installed a 6K Honda generator. Was necessary to enlarge the original compartment for the Honda , the coach actually had 2 generators which makes for a very large exterior compartment on the pass. side (Original LP door).
Now we had to install EVERYTHING into this coach. A bath module from our donor coach and a new holding and water tank gave him a fresh water system. Next we built in the main bulkhead walls adding a pocket door to the back area (shop/bedroom) . The colors are earthtone taupw with mill finish aluminum trim. The shop & galley counters as well as the dinette table are all Corian The dinette is a copy of the original early design but cut down 14″ to make a comfortable 2 person dinette, this give still a place to sit but increases floorspace and cuts down on the clutter.
The back doors are probably the most interesting feature of this Transmode , the deck ladder comes off to allow both doors to swing wide — we’ve built this into a coach but was very time consuming, finding one already done was a real stroke for Stephen.
Stay tuned on this project for more…
