Three Axle Integral Coach Specifications

Like the two Axle Phoenix model these vehicles are based on American drive line and running gear to provide for long vehicle life on our often tough Australian road conditions.

 

Each coach is built to the specic requirements of our customers. Vehicle applications include long haul passenger transportand the highest luxury tourist operations. Vehicles can be built from 12.5m length up to 14.5m length and have up to 1700mm door height providing a massive amount of bin storage area. Options for passenger comfort are similar to the Two Axle Phoenix coach, which include overhead parcel racks, video / DVD systems and air-conditioning but can also include on board washroom, leather seats and even timber door panelling.
