Dragonfly

There’s something special about an Eagle bus conversion. Have you noticed that most Eagle conversions have names? That’s because there is a little bit of the owner/converter in each one that makes it unique.

This bus, Dragonfly, is well known in bus circles. Bob and Karen Ward were the first bus owners I knew.

Bob is a great storyteller and we have heard their stories of the conversion and the cross-country trips they had made, as well as the new friends they had made along the way. They have enjoyed and shared hospitality in Dragonfly for lots of years, but for all of us, there comes a time when the maintenance and driving is too much and it’s time to pass it on so another owner can love it and make it their own. It’s that time for Wards.

As a result, Dragonfly is for sale! She is unique and beautiful. Bob and Karen have asked us to offer it for sale on their behalf. A listing of what is offered follows, as well as pictures.
