Default Hospitality Coach


Flexible Seating Plans



750 gallons fresh water (onboard tank + 3 roof bladders)



3 Heated Outdoor Showers with Shower Tents and 1200' water supply hose




1200 sq ft of canopy tents configurable as 10x10, 10x20, 12x30, and 18x40





Complete Outdoor Kitchen with propane griddle, 3 grills, convection oven, 2 bread machines, 2 forty cup coffee makers, and 2 electric fryers


12kw dual fuel backup generator




Misc: 20 cell phone chargers, 2 wifi routers, wifi signal extender, 30 ft. flagpole, 5 two/three person tents with electric blankets and phone chargers, 150' 220v cables, half jacuzzi tub in coach, portable outdoor hot tub, 2 digital safes, outdoor lounge with inflatable furniture and 8 propane lanterns

Everything listed above can be carried underneath coach or in 25 roof storage tubs (with water bladders stored)


Basically this is an evolution of "Pair of Jacks" to facilitate attending several skydiving and music festivals each year. My intent is to hopefully rent my coach out (stationary or with driver) for outdoor events, weddings, festivals, etc.
And continue writing off my legitimate business expenses in owning and operating my coach

I've been trying to get these pictures and the narrative posted for several weeks, but keep losing the pictures--so I'm going to get them posted while my connection seems to be working and I'll add narrative later depending on what features people are most interested in.

Wow, the roof really is stronger than I gave it credit for... That is what, 5,000 lbs of water up there?

I would love to see your axle weights.

Jim's coach is the world's first true-to-life demonstration of the scientific phenomenon known as a "Blivet" ...

Contact the Vice President of Catastrophe with State Farm, Allstate and Farm Bureau,etc. They will contract with you in advance for this rig to support their Cat Team that sets up in the parking lot after a major hurricane or other catastrophe. The last contract I saw, for this type vendor, was for $ 420.00 per day, plus the diesel required for the genny. This includes one operator.

That sounds interesting!

And after two divorces, I am definitely experienced with catastrophes!

Now if you want to see a blivet……

I have three of the 150 gallon drinking water bladders. Safe working capacity is probably 200 gallons. The one in the back probably has 300 gallons or more, with slight weeping around the seams.....



(this test was initiated by falling asleep during tank fill, only to awaken with a nagging feeling I had forgotten something)

All three bladders should weigh that, but I rarely use all three on the roof--and then only when parked with jacks and jack pads.

I sometimes use the third bladder to ferry water in the back of my Honda CRV. and then refill the coach tank or roof bladders.



I've traveled short distances (into the park) with two bladders (400 gallons) and highway speeds/distances with one.
