Link to the coach? Someone here on the board may have personal knowledge of it.

Default 1993 WB 40

There is no link. The coach is part of estate and I found about it Thru friend. Have been looking at 1990 but I"m not sure differences between 90 and 93. I think 93 may be first year for thru body exhaust? Just not sure about differences in 93. On 2k mile trip to see coach and really interested in buying. Be there tomorrow to see it.

Lots of differences 1990 to 1993. 1991 is when they changed them quite a bit, more info can be found on Vintagebirds.com.

For example:

1990 -
SP - 36'
PT - 40' (WB)

1991 Changed exteriors appearance of Wide Body & SP. Made major equipment changes.
SP - 36'
PT - 40' WB -- 40' WBSA

1992 - End of SP.
SP - 36'
PT - 40' WB -- 40' WBSA

1993 -
40' WLWB -- 40' WBSA -- 40' WBDA

Default OMG!!!! Bought it

Mike and Mary,
Good, bad or otherwise I bought it. I am having coach checked over as we speak. Cancelling flights and leaving from Phoenix maybe thurs to drive it home. At a glance all looks well but I am having batteries etc checked out just to be sure. Trish and I are going to wally world to get provisions. We have nothing but the clothes we brought and I don't even have a scewdriver with me for the 1800 mile trip. It will truely be an adventure. Only down side is that we have no quality time with owner since he passed away. Local guy that is selling coach for estate knows coaches in general but not this particular coach. We have decided to name it Jafetica.......translation.....Just another freaking expensive toy I can't afford!!!!!! Call you when we get home.
Bob
