    While having previously specialized in the production of church pews and school furniture, Quebec-based cabinetmaker Eugene Prevost entered the motorcoach business in 1924 when he was commissioned to build a wooden coach body for a new REO truck chassis. Demand quickly grew, and by 1937, the company built its first dedicated bus-manufacturing plant. During World War II, Prevost revolutionized bus design and manufacture, launching the first all-metal bus bodies.

    By 1947, the company’s manufacturing plant had grown to 22,000 square feet and boasted metal and wood shops, a foundry, die-casting, and plating capabilities. By 1957, Prevost had phased out its traditional cabinet business in order to focus on motor coaches exclusively. The year 1957 also heralded new ownership and a name change to “Prevost Car Inc.” Today, global giant Volvo owns the company. Predictably, the exacting quality, unmatched engineering, and leading-edge comfort and convenience features pioneered and perfected by Prevost have made the company’s motor coaches the unqualified choice of touring entertainers, sports teams, and racers to maintain their grueling schedules in safety, style, and comfort.

    This commanding 2001 Prevost Vantare XL-45 motor coach was custom-ordered by the owner of a NASCAR racing team and no expense was spared in its original specifications and construction. It features the very rare and expensive optional “over-the-road” air conditioning system, which was not typically available from the factory in conjunction with a slide-out body configuration. This Vantare features both of these options, and it is offered complete with blueprints, build sheets, and all the material specifications. Excellent luxury features include a power awning, Bose stereo system, massage chairs for the pilot and co-pilot, fold-up seating for the outside living area, granite floors with stainless steel grouting, and a power couch that folds into a double bed. Other welcome amenities include power shades, 42-inch plasma TV, and a power-sliding door that divides the master bedroom from the rest of the living area, and three overhead air-conditioning units plus central heating.

    A microwave convection oven, double-door refrigerator, dishwasher, shower, washer, dryer, and cedar-lined master closet and linen closet provide further creature comforts. All-new batteries were installed at a cost of over $6,000 alone. The security system features an intercom, outside camera, and a hideaway safe underneath the bed, which is operated by a power switch that raises the bed for additional storage. Ease of operation is assured with a backup camera, air horns, fog lights, an automatic levelling system, GPS satellite tracking, and a high-output Owen diesel generator. Less than 70,000 miles have been travelled, and the Vantare benefits from a recent service and upholstery updates at a cost of $35,000. Priced at over $1.3 million when new, it represents immense value and an incomparable opportunity at auction. Travel like a star in total comfort!
