That can be done. I think neweller has done it and others. I've thought of doing the same but will wait till I upgrade coaches.

Where do you get a steering wheel like that for the coach?

The steering column is a GM but not sure what model. You may be able to get a newer GM steering wheel to fit it. But it would be more than the wheel since the base would have to have the clockspring for the extra controls.
It would be easier and cheaper to add a stereo controller like this: CD-SR100 - Steering Wheel Remote | Pioneer Electronics USA
Even if you have to change out the radio, that's on my short list.

another option would be to get a Smartwheel from a totaled motorhome. Visone in Kentucky I'm sure could supply the wheel and control box.

Some time ago I was talking to a gentleman that had taken a steering wheel and box from an Acura and put it in his motorhome and loved it.
