****THIS COACH HAD A FIRE START IN THE BEDROOM AREA AND HAS VERY LIGHT SMOKE DAMAGE THROUGHOUT.  THE FIRE DID NOT BURN THROUGH THE WALL OR CEILING OF THE COACH ANYWHERE.  THIS COACH RUNS AND DRIVES PERFECT, THE DRIVELINE WAS NOT EFFECTED BY THE FIRE.  THIS COACH HAS AN OHIO CLEAR TITLE BRANDED REBUILT****

 

You are bidding on a 2005 Mandalay Coach 40B (40 footer) with QUAD slide outs, all on a heavy duty Freightliner Chassis, powered by a Caterpillar C7 350HP inline 6 Cylinder Turbo Diesel attached to a heavy duty Allison transmission.  Complete with Cruise Control, electric mirrors, hydraulic leveling system, Air Horns, Aluminum Wheels, completely electric main awning, automatic rooftop satellite system (unable to test, subscription required), and an Onan 8000 watt Quiet Diesel Generator that runs perfect with just 441 hours!!!  This coach runs and drives PERFECT!!  This coach has just 29,915 miles.


CONDITION:  This coach had a fire start in the bedroom area and caused light smoke damage throughout.  The worse of the damage is right in the bedroom area, away from this area most of the coach is just fine!  The soft ceiling material is discolored throughout, most of the cabinets outside of the bedroom are just fine.  The fire did not burn through the wall or ceiling of the coach anywhere, but the exterior of the passenger rear slide has mild smoke damage on the rear wall of it (the slide was in during the fire).  There is damage to the drivers rear passenger cap as seen in the pictures, other than that, the exterior is great.   We drove it over 400 miles home!!!  The generator starts up fine and the electrical systems are FINE in this coach, the front air conditioner works fine, the rear air conditioner needs the interior soft pieces replaced but should work fine.  All lights work fine in this coach, aside from the obviously damaged ones in the bedroom!  There are NO large wiring nightmares in this coach like some other coaches with fire damage.

 

As you enter the coach through the bus style entry door, you are at the dash area.  The dash and front seats look fine.  Behind the seats, on your right is a large slideout.  It houses a large couch that makes into a bed and free standing dinette area!  The cabinets in this area look fine.  Just pass that is the large fridge, that also appears fine.  Back to your left is another slide out that houses another couch followed by the kitchen area.  The kitchen area cabinets and appliance appear fine.  The ceiling material in this area is discolored from light smoke damage and needs heavy cleaning or replaced.  The flooring looks fine and may be fine with just a good cleaning.

As you step into the middle of the coach, on your right is a private commode room complete with a private sink, this room all looks fine.  Back to your left is the large corner shower, and the vanity/sink area!  This area has light smoke damage and the cabinets should be fine here as well!  The ceiling material will definitely need replaced in this area.

As you step towards the back of the coach, on your right is the bedroom slideout that houses the QUEEN sized bed as well as some more cabinets!   Back to your left is another large slide out that houses a cabinet array.   Across the back of this coach are several more cabinets and a large mirror door closet.  The area to your left is where the fire obviously started.  We think a candle perhaps started the fire in this area.  The cabinets in this slide out has heavy damage and some will need replaced.  The window in this slide out is also broken, we placed a plywood piece in this area to keep weather out and make your drive home comfortable.

 

This coach has lots of storage and cabinets throughout!  It has dual roof a/c units, the front one is fine, the rear one needs the soft interior pieces replaced but should work fine.  The generator starts up just fine and sends power through the the coach and operates the slides, lights, and all systems without issue.  This coach allows a do it yourselfer to save THOUSANDS and have a super nice coach when its done.  We recommend buyers of interior burn coaches to make a trip to Elkhart, IN, the RV Capitol of the World!  There are many 'surplus' stores in that area that sales RV interior pieces for pennies on the dollar. 

 

This coach runs/drives PERFECT the driveline was not affected by the fire in anyway.  This coach has TONS of storage and a very LARGE basement!!  The exterior of the coach looks great aside from the corner damage of the rear cap which can easily be repaired, we would rate the outside a 7+ out of 10 aside from the obvious damage! 


This is a super nice coach ready to have a custom interior job!!
