This 1986 Eagle shell was purchased new from Eagle, manufactured by Florida Coach, Inc. and converted into an Entertainer Sleeper Model. Upon completion the bus was leased to Willie Nelson for touring the US and Canada. I found it interesting that they continued to use it until 1999. I think that shows that a quality built coach will last you many miles and years on the road. Also very humbling that a famous country star and actor would keep the same tour bus all those years.

Features include Front and rear lounge, full bathroom with large shower, six full sleeping bunks with seating for 12, climate controlled interior, on board diesel generator when not plugged into power supply, 2 TV's, 2 stereo systems, all new plumbing, professionally restored interior and original art murals by Rainmaker.

This coach obviously sold on auction back in 2012. The artist that did the murals are fantastic. Does anyone know who this Rainmaker is? I tried a search but came up empty.

That is a nice Eagle. Willie should have bought back at auction so he could reminisce old times. This might have actually been taken from him back when he was having tax issue.
