‘I gave myself a much-needed early gift last week – I purchased a new Prevost tour bus.
We all liked our old bus, but it was on a fix or repair weekly schedule, so it was time for a change.
I hope its next owner will appreciate it, as much as we did.

Our new bus was originally built for a band you may know, Lynyrd Skynyrd. If those bus walls could talk, there might be some stories there.
The new bus has been completely overhauled and I know we’re all going to enjoy it.
So now, you can be on the lookout for our new bus when we hit your town’
