As the hubby and I are getting older, we have decided it's time to shorten our road trips. We would like to trade our 1997 Prevost bus for an equitable value real estate. Bus is worth $110k, we can add cash if the house is worth more.

Bus features:

Professional conversion done by Angola
Detroit series 60 engine with around 250,000 miles
Aqua-hot for furnace and water heater
2kw solar with 14 new house batteries
equipped with a stacker washer/dryer
dishwasher
45' no slides
All tires purchased new in 2013
20kw Martin generator
and more!

We are flexible on location. Would prefer AZ, MT, SD or NM. Possibly northern AL. Bus is currently located in Yuma.

That bus is very nicely done inside - kind of timeless in it's decor. Is that original or did you re-do it? Very very nice!!

Thank you!

 

We replaced the original aqua blue living room set with the chocolate power recliner sofa and storage ottoman. We also replaced the dinette chairs with a flex steel booth seating.

Thanks for asking. Mileage is currently around 250,000. We purchased the bus in 2010 with around 220,000 on it. We have had no problems and are current on maintenance.

 

We are the third owners. First owner was a successful lawyer in Quebec. He owned the bus until 2009, when he traded it in on a new Marathon coach. Marathon upgraded and sold the unit. Second owner bought the bus and used it to travel between ski resorts while launching their ski wear company.The sold it in early 2010. Hubby and I bought the coach from Mr Oliver in Princeton TX in October 2010.

 

All pictures above and in my ad were taken in 2015.

Yes, it's a Series 60. We get 8 mpg overall.

That is an excellent engine and very good mpg.

 

There should be absolutely no issue - none at all - with that engine going over 500K miles in RV service. I believe that the B50 on that engine in RV service is 750K miles. It is 850K in line-haul service. So for anyone buying it for RV use - this is a lifetime engine.....
