This bus was built by Fla. Coach in 1990 for The Back Street Boys who leased it for ten years for summer tours. In 2001 Vince Gill leased it for one tour. Jack Calhoun then sold it to the Darts of So.Cal. and we purchased it from them in 2005.
The coach had 499.000 total miles at this point.In 06, we had Covington Detroit Diesel install a new crate engine and we purchased a 5 year,400,000 miles extended warranty . The same year, we had the main Gen set rebuilt, replaced all the brake drums,shoes, hardware and installed two drive tires.
It has a backup gen set in the pass. side rear compartment behind rear wheels.

This a forty foot unit ,single axel,it has four bays,(which we need for sound equipment and product), the same storage as a forty five unit.
It's cheaper to operate,two less tires and wheels,tolls are the same as a car.
The ride is better on interstate hway., but not as good on two lane wavey rough roads.

Driver area. We have replaced the GPS with a Tomtom that I like better.

Great Looking pics.

It's nice to see what others have done! Now if we could get Clifford and Wayne to show off theirs we would be more complete. ;)

Keep 'em coming, we like the eye candy! :D

Harvester, I am curious about how your coach weighs out in this configuration. What is your gross wet weight, and your axle weights? Beautiful coach. Always liked the 10S's. Too bad Eagle went to the bogie configuration and didn't stay with the tag, but understand why. Nice bus!
