The 1983 Prevost was puchased at the end of July 2010 for $4,500.00.

I started the conversion in August with me and a naibor.

I took it on the maiden voyage in January 2011.

The bus now features two 15/5 roof top heat and a/c units, self tracking satilite system, Onan 15kva three phase diesel generator, 100 amp main panel, PLC control with touch screen, fold away flat screen tv with soround sound, 25 gal hot water heater, 75 gallon fresh water tank, king size bed, two bunk beds (for the kiddies), four swivel reclining captians chairs, small kitchenett, full size shower, all new rims and tires.

Congratz on the purchase.. Sure would love to see what it looks like now.. Have any new pictures since you converted it?? I ended up buying a turbo charged MCI with an automatic after I looked at that bus.. Here is what it looked like the day I drove it home.. I've since started skinning the sides and installed RV windows..

Yes I have pics but they are to large to post and can't figure out how to shrink them.
