Looking for a coach in Nashville this weekend

Got an Eagle for sale? Looking for an Eagle? How about parts? As long as it is Eagle or bus conversion related, feel free to post it here. This is a public forum.
NOTE: Be smart about what personal information you post in your ad.


This is going to sound abrupt, but the subject says it all. We're looking hard for a coach to carry our family of 9 for a year. Have been to Florida (the purple Eagle with stacks), Nevada, Ohio, Nashville- and we're back in TN this weekend to decide which one- and hopefully drive it home starting Monday or Tuesday. My post is a last minute poll of the smart folks on this board that may know of a nice coach for sale within reasonable driving distance, or right in Nashville that might fit the bill for our family that we would kick ourselves for overlooking (if it exists)- and someone could say: "you should have asked". Well, I'm asking! Any help is appreciated, we hope to be inside the Eagle fraternity soon (although I'll admit we're considering all coach types). I've read almost everything you have here- great collection of knowledge, and a few friendly owners that I've spoken with during my search.

THANKS.
I'd be happy to share photos or video of coaches we've seen.

Have you checked out Goodson's over in North Carolina? They have a pretty good collection and seem to be good people to deal with. I don't know what your budget or criteria are, but they have a good collection of entertainer buses. They have a 78 05 right now with 9 bunks listed for $19,900. Don't know what your use is going to be either. The problem with entertainers is that they have lots of bunks but usually a small single bathroom and no shower. http://goodsonbussales.com/eagleentertainers.htm

You've probably already checked Staley's in Nashville. They have some nice buses, starting at around $50k. http://www.staleycoach.com/

Here are some that are for sale by owner around Nashville.

1990 Model 15 - 6 bunks - $38,000

Silver Eagle in Maryville/Knoxville area - 6 bunks - $35,000
http://knoxville.craigslist.org/rvs/1699274379.html

A little father north is a 1983 Eagle with 9 bunks and a master bedroom listed for $35,000 - Columbus, OH
http://nashville.craigslist.org/cto/1707927104.html

And to the east in Eldon, MO is a 73 Eagle with 9 bunks and a master bedroom listed for $21,000. Says it used to be owned by Sammy Kershaw. Watch out for the 8V72 engine on this one though. ;)

Yes, last sunday I was talking here in Chihuahua with a seated 15/40 owner and I have seen two or three 15/35 running here in MX. A few weeks ago a 15/35 was on sale at US $21,600, sold very fast.

That's the same bus I listed that is on Craigslist for $38k. Somebody might call them from the craigslist ad and make an offer in the 20s and walk away with it.

Jim,

They made two axle Model 15's in 35 and 40 foot lengths. Most of the 40 foot two axle Eagles went to the Calhoun Brothers.

Thanks.

I've added a couple of coaches you mentioned to the list for tomorrow. A nice Eagle from KY is set up for a Monday viewing, time will tell!
