1976 Eagle 05 Bus - 10” roof raise, diesel generator, solar system, and fully off-grid setup.

I have lived on this bus for almost 6 years and traveled all over the country with it. Three years ago it had a full interior remodel, a solar system installed, and upgraded the battery pack.

The VA hospital originally owned the bus then converted to an RV and the roof was raised in the late 80’s, along with the transmission converted to an Automatic and the engine rebuilt.

The builder then lived on it until 2015 as a snowbird and I purchased it from his family after he passed.

The bus is set up perfectly for 2 people and the couch folds out for guests. The couch has storage underneath and almost 2 complete bays below for storage.

All of the water and electrical components are in the rear bay and 1/3 of the middle bay holds the Mini-Split unit and propane tanks. 

The front bay is completely open and 2/3 of the middle bay is useable storage.

800 AmpH Lead Acid house battery (8, 200Ah 6V batteries).

1600 watts solar. All 100-watt flex panels.

Victron charge controllers and battery monitor.

The inverter/ charger is an older unit, It works great but could be updated.

The start batteries are 3 years old.

All new tires in 2019.

150-gallon Fresh Water Tank, 100-gallon Grey, and 50-gallon Black tank.

12kw Kubota diesel generator.

5-speed Allison automatic transmission.

10” roof raise.
