This is a well maintained music tour bus. Sleeps 8 or more, has a bathroom, 2 flat screen tv's, music system, 2 dvd players, microwave, surround speakers, 6 bunks, 1 private bedroom, new air brake system, new alternator, 140 gallon diesel tanks, 5 speed transmission, air horns, reverse lights, less than 1,000 miles on brand new tires a couple are retreads in rear, 2 brand new batteries, refrigerator, 2 very large apartment style air conditioners (NOT the roof top style that leak) and they can freeze you out if you want! Also has floor access panels to get to the top of the motor from inside the bus if ever needed.
The generator is diesel, it feeds off the main tanks, 2 air conditioners: one is located between the Lounge and the bunks (all bunks get a feed from the a/c and can be controlled by the sleeper, the other is behind and in between the bunks and the master bedroom.
It has a working bathroom. No shower but one can easily be installed as there is a vacant closet that was designed to accommodate a shower.
Detroit diesel engine 8V71 - strong - will do 78-80 mph down the highway if needed for passing. The bus comes with a new 14kwatt generator that is awesome!! All brand new tires, show off polished aluminum wheels. Steers great, rides down the road excellent. As all buses do it puffs some smoke until warm, then nothing at all.
Has 6 large bays that go all the way through under the bus. Has electric primer if ever needed, 2 easy access fuel filters, 110 volt outlets throughout the bus.
This is a '77 in excellent condition for it's years, but it is still a '77! However, these buses have been known to last for well over a million miles and many from as early as the 1950's are still on the road today. This bus can be driven anywhere in the U.S. without worries. Mileage is unknown due to a rebuilt motor. There are no mileage logs because this was a privately owned bus never commercial transit - titled as private/passenger vehicle. Though I do have meticulous records of how this bus was restored and maintained by the previous owner (lots of documentation)!
There are a few minor cosmetic fixes on the interior (wood trim) and a little bit of rust on a few place on the exterior but overall it's still a great looking/running tour bus. It would be very comfortable for whatever your purpose!
