Montes, Las Vegas
« on: July 20, 2013, 01:32:10 PM »
Anyone out there remember a bus/RV shop in Las Vegas. I believe they used to do conversions. I know they have gone out of business. I am just following a lead for information.

Thanks,

 Hi;
    I too remember a shop in North Las Vegas. I remember I needed a baggage
    door for my MC-7. I called B&B coach and they sent me to that shop.  I got the
    baggage door and a drivers seat. They just happened to be parting out a MC-7.
    That was back around 1995 or so.  However, I too don't recall the name of the
     shop. Hope someone remembers.
                                                   Merle.

I think that was Craigs shop Southwest Coach he was in Phoenix for a while after Vegas he had a 4104 GM for a personal bus he ran it to Alaska and Canada for fishing and hunting tours

I haven't seen him since 2000, after his wife passed away he just closed up shop and dropped out of the bus thing

I know that sometime in our coach's life, it spent sometime at Montes. The engine mud flaps or skirting  has Montes, Las Vegas printed on them.
