Duane & Cheryl's 89 Eagle Model 20

This is a public forum. This forum will be a place to show your Project Eagle and updates on progress you have made. Please make one thread with your project and put all updates in the same thread. Sorry... Eagles only.


Every time I look at this thread it gets better! I love that you keep adding pictures! I am amazed what the two of you have done. This is the thread I will use to get my wife motivated to work on the bus with me!

Honestly, I don't know what to ask about the Hurricane. And then I want to ask everything! I bought my unit used with less that 50 hours on it. I have no instructions or anything. I see that it has three zones built in - heat, domestic water, and engine loop. Basically, I just want to pick your brain about how you set them up.

I had thought about doing the under floor heating like Gumpy did but I have now decided that I don't need that. I am not going to be camping in 30 below temps. One thing that is different in my bus is that I will have bunks and a side aisle bathroom. I want to make sure I can put heat into both of those areas as well.

We'll talk! Thanks for your continued inspiration.

Duane Thank You for the post. You should be very proud of what you have done. That is some fine work on your conversion. I cannot wait untill Quartzsite to look your bus over. How is the radiator coming along? Witch way did you decide to go? When at Quartzsite I will pick your brain about the driver up. I am going to do that on my 15.

Thank You Wayne

Hello, Duane and Cheryl, I am amazed at the quality of the work you have done on your bus. Most impressive. If you are interested I have new in the box stainless corners and bumper blade to convert the AE-20 rubber bumpers over. I was going to convert ours but we are going to sell her instead. Again my praise about your work. Enjoy. Joseph 203-417-6624

Thank you very much for your comments. This board and the poeple that are here , keeps us motivated to be able to finish this project. Well 2009 is a new year and our plans for the Eagle this year is to replace the rubber front bumper and the bumper ends, with the stainless style front bumpers. We have the interior about 90% finished and then it on to FINALLY :roll: :roll: :roll: paint the exterior. I will be posting more pictures as things are completed.

Hi again

Well we have not been posting many pictures lately, only because what work we are doing on the bus is mostly finishing all the loose ends. We did finally change over the old rubber front bumper to the famous Eagle front bumper look. I am so happy with the new look of the front bumper. If any one can tell me what the vertical poles at the left and right corners of the bumper is for wins a PRIZE. Not sure what that prize is but good luck with your answers. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: We have started on the paint work but not sure how long it will take us to complete.

Man-man, what can I say? It is outstanding, every inch of it, and so well thought out and materialistically perfect and functional. If I had your coach, I would bury mine and make a storm cellar out of it.

Absolutely Gorgeous! The look you are achieving is beautiful and very shiny too!

I'm gonna take a stab at the poles, for your flags maybe? :mrgreen:
