CE QU'EN DIT LE VENDEUR
  • 1952 FLXIBLE CUSTOM DAYCOACH MOTOR HOME
  • Description : A 1952 motor coach, restored to perfection. The Land Yacht conversion was accomplished by the Custom Couch Co in 1961. No. 967. This unique features all of the amenities found in the most modern motor homes, combined with the classic retro elegance of Day Couch travel. All systems are fully operational. The upgrade specifications include flat screen TV,DVD,CD, individual control heating and air-conditioning in both forward and rear cabins, stereo sound, sleeping for 4, roof observation deck with interior and exterior access. The bath shines with a very rare and correct stainless Travel Lav with shower. The decor includes new wall to wall carpeting with a full protective runner, new upholstery, all tastefully appointed. The rear compartment converts to sleeping berths, reminiscent of stately rail travel. There is extensive storage capability, with 2 full wardrobes, 11 large drawers, and double size slideouts under each sofa. The walk in rear compartment is a combination of diamond plate and carpet, and is large enough to carry a motorcycle! There is a full towing package for a trailer. Electrical systems are powered by either the new 10 KW Kohler generator, or by a shore power 50 amp. connection. There is new rubber all around on perfect Alcoa rims. The Zip Dee awnings all have new canvas, along with tinted, screened windows, and privacy curtains. The exterior combines DuPont Imron paint, highly polished stainless steel, superior chrome, and extensive pin striping. An automatic transmission makes for easy driving and it cruises effortlessly at 65MPH. The motor has been thoroughly inspected and repainted to original condition. The steering is tight and responsive. The couch does not require any special license to operate. It has the original owners manuals, factory blue prints, full schematics and original documentation. This vehicle may be used to promote products, as a campaign couch, a corporate entertainment and tailgating bus, or as an elegant private motor home. It has performed in all of these functions in grand style and is truly "one of a kind". If there were a Concours d'Elegance for motor coaches, this would definitely be a winner!!
