Just realized we have had the Eagle for about 9 months now and I still haven't posted pictures. These pictures are as it was when we got it. We haven't done much to it yet, except catch up on the maintenance and replace some worn out parts.
From what I can understand it was originally being built for Tyrone Malone http://www.tyronemalone.net/ by B&B coach. It was then purchased by W. Covington of Minnesota and I purchased it from his family after his passing.
It is an 01 which has been lengthened to 45', widened to 102" and a 14' slide installed. The series 60 (with about 20,000 miles on it now) was apparently given to Tyrone by his good friend Roger Penske.
Stopped by to see Clifford and Sonja on the way home from Yuma last year and tried to connect with both Van and Gary of B&B in Las Vegas, but that didn't work out.
Not too sure how many pictures I can get on here at one time so I'll try these and see how it comes out.
Thanks for looking....Tim

I don't think I should show this to my wife, she would have me knocking a hole in the side and stretching it at the same time. :o

All I can say is, what a gorgeous coach! And an Eagle 01 at that! Very nice!

You'd think being Tyrone's coach it would have a 12V71TT
