I give them Kudos.... but still think the proportions aren't great.
Older Eagles still look better.
As I mentioned before ... windows scaled wrong.

Followup,

exceprts from  Buse Ride Article

BR: When do the first Eagles by Silver Eagle Bus roll off the line? 

Hanloh: The first Entertainer Model 25 will be delivered in early November, and we are in discussions with several individuals interested in the seated coaches. Our plan is to build only what we have pre-sold.


I know some of you have been to the rally and have talked to Craig;  Does he mention why there are well behind (8 months) the first delivery?

tekebird, Why don't you just call and ask them? They have always been very polite and willing to give up information. I figure when the first one rolls out the world will know. As for being late with the first delivery, again, call them. As with any business sometimes things don't work out in the time frame desired, maybe the case here. I am sure they don't want to rush something and it come back to haunt them. As far as I am concerned, whatever schedule they are on is OK with me. I can still get parts I need.

Happy Trails,

Paul

hmm............ small operation, way behind the power curve, and me having no intention to buy one or buy parts from them.

Don't feel it is my place to take up their time........

I figured one of you Eagle Nuts would have the scoop.

as for the World Knowing......doubt that......this and the BNO board were the only places I ahve seen mention of Eagle since the Bus Ride Article last year.

this included thier roll out off the partially compete but painted Unit 001

Doug, very few Eagle owners post any thing on the boards because of the bashing that starts when the Eagle name comes up.Not one time have i ever heard an Eagle owner tell someone that is buying another type bus not to buy it.Eagle owners love their buses and right now we have hope for the Eagles,I enjoy your posts most of the time but you need to give Sliver Eagle a break

My thoughts on this are pretty basic, regardless on how a person feels about eagles, the start up of a bus manufactor is a good thing for all of us, anything that promotes busing should be welcomed by us all, I wish them luck and hope for the best, as an eagle owner I have a vested interest in them but I'm sure we all will benefit in one way or another.

I'm not bashing Silver Eagle just wanted to know what was the latest.

I know there are Eagle people on here that call down there from time to time.

True I am not a fan of the eagle but that has no relation to my inquiry as to what is new.

I don't care for the Corvette but I still read the articles on them

I'd be happy to discuss the downfalls of any bus make/model

Again.... Just wondering whats happening in down at the border.
