Greetings RV enthusiasts! You are in luck as you are now looking at a rarely seen or available for purchase premium Kingsley Custom Coach built on a special-order Freightliner CC132 Coronado Chassis. This gorgeous, very well appointed 2005 Kingsley was built with a pre-emission engine and always kept indoors in heated storage by me unless it was in use.
See photo of the build sheet for details on all the standard equipment available when built. This coach has almost all the options available at the time, including 4 TVs with an outside Samsung 42" swing out TV, 3 different TV satellites/ antennas, ice making machine, pull-out BBQ grill, 3 different heating modes, electric tow kick heaters throughout, heated garage, 3 low profile rooftop 15,000 BTU air conditioners with heat pumps, Aqua-Hot diesel-fired boiler to provide unlimited hot water (great for showering and washing dishes & clothes) and also circulate hot antifreeze through the engine on very cold mornings. Approximately $80,000 in options was spent at the time of this build. The MSRP of this unit was over $550,000 when it was new, and it would be close to a million dollars for a coach of this caliber today.
Be sure to view all of photos for this 2005 Kingsley Coach.
THE HISTORY: This Kingsley Coach was the last unit built at the Kingsley plant in Pennsylvania before the company relocated to Minnesota. It was built for a Harley Davidson dealer from PA. Kingsley spent a year perfecting this build with all its options, including the Lancaster, PA Amish-built interior and cabinets. The original owner put 2 Harleys in the garage and pulled a stacker trailer with 4 additional motorcycles, this would allow him to invite customers and their bikes on a road trips. He then traded this coach in to Kingsley for a white one that matched his fleet of trucks. When I bought the coach from Kingsley, there were only 20,000 miles on the unit.
The coach has been meticulously maintained and has always been used by non-smokers with no pets or small children. Only 110,000 miles driven by my wife an me on a chassis that is rated by Freightliner to be driven over the road over a million miles without problems. Most of our miles were driven between Minnesota and Arizona 10 different years. Recently we purchased a condo in Arizona so now we are looking for a new owner for our beautiful Kingsley Coach.
THE “TRUCK”: This unit is a 49' long diesel tandem drive with the Series60 14 liter. 515 horse power upgraded to 550 HP. Detroit engine with 2 stage Jake Brake. Transmission is a ZF Meritor 12 speed auto shift (fully automatic; no clutch). Meritor tandem rear drive axels (40,000 pound rated capacity). All 8 wheels drive so there is no tag axel to get hung up on a curb. Traction lockers on all wheels for superior traction on soft gravel or snow. Airliner cushion air suspension with optional "City Ride" feature that will override the suspension air bags and raise up the rear suspension by close to 6 inches to get BIG underside clearance that eliminate scraping the bottom on rough ground. Automatic air leveling system. Automatic traction control. Anti-lock brakes. Alcoa polished "Dura Brite" aluminum wheels with matched set of Michelin 275/80 R 24.5 XDN2 drive tires that have less than 30,000 miles. NEW Michelin 275/80R 24.5 XZA+ front steer tires with less than 2000 miles. Twin 130 gallon polished fuel tanks with a range of about 1200 to 1300 miles. NEW chassis batteries and 8 - 235 CCA maintenance-free deep cycle house batteries.10,000 pound receiver hitch.
Let’s talk mechanical amenities... since this coach was built on a new, real truck with a 46,000 pound air suspension, one piece double frame from the engine to the garage, it has unbelievable stability on the road in any road condition. If there ever is mechanical trouble you can pull into a 24 hour truck service center for help. This Kingsley coach can receive service from any truck mechanic, anyone who works on Freightliner, Kenworth, Peterbilt or Navistar will work on the problem. (Unlike most RVs that get turned away when the shop is full of “real trucks” and they do not have time to disassemble the bedroom to get to the engine in the back.)
THE COACH BODY: Gorgeous exterior red color full body paint- Imron Radiant Fire Pearl Metallic. High polished stainless steel bottom wrap (up to the height of the compartments). Protective clear film in the front. NEW Carefree 24' patio awning with wind sensor, LED lights, and new style dropdown front which provides shade throughout the day. Exterior window shades & toppers over all other windows not covered by the awning. Coach has been frequently polished from stem to stern.
THE SPACE: Very spacious! 2 slides open up to 14' wide inside. Spacious master bath with NEW macerating toilet & good-sized shower. Spacious master bedroom with a 4’ slide. Queen bed has storage underneath and a “home quality” mattress. Bedroom has a NEW Samsung TV built into cabinets.
The living area (14' wide with slides open) has a large ULTRALEATHER sleeper sofa with inflatable queen mattress and an ULTRALEATHER jack knife loveseat. This coach is unique in that it comes with a cozy 2-person kitchen table & chairs and a third sofa- an ULTRALEATHER jack knife couch that seats 3 when the table & chairs are taken out. With all 3 sofas in we have comfortably hosted 14 people on day trips. Bonus- Both jack knife couches fold to flat for sleeping and have ample storage space underneath.
NEW 50" Samsung SmartTV mounted in the living area ceiling. 32" TV above the kitchen sink. NEW Winegard T4 in-motion satellite dish for when driving. NEW Winegard Trav’ler automatically adjusting satellite dish for when parked. NEW crank up local channel UHF antenna. NEW Jensen truckers’ special stereo radio with SiriusXM, weather channel, and storm alert even when the radio is off.
Padded ceiling throughout has 40 NEW LED lights and is 7'9" tall (no cramped camper feeling in this rig!) Upgraded cherry glazed oak wood cabinets with carved trim throughout. Thermo pane insulated windows with night and day privacy shades. Ceramic tile in the kitchen and bathroom. Ice making machine built into the kitchen. Stackable washer and dryer. Central vacuum. NEW Aqua Hot 450D with 6 hot water heat zones (an $8600 item) has less than 2000 miles.10KW Onan generator, solar panels with NEW control , 3000 watt Onan inverter with auto gen…. ALL in excellent and trouble-free working condition and appearance!
Driver and passenger seats are the best; they are National semi-truck brand leather seats on swivels (when facing back they add 2 more seats to enlarge the living area). Driver and passenger seats have 5 position air lumbar and back cycler massage. Professional truck drivers drive up to 2500 to 3000 miles per week so these seats are top-of-the-line and built for sustained comfort.
There is so much to love, too much to list it all. This Kingsley Coach has often been the “envy” of the campground, from Vancouver, Canada to Arizona, especially when I open the garage and unload the Mercedes Smart car convertible for my wife and I to easily get around and explore. Again, see the photo of build sheet for additional items and features. Anyway, you get the idea, this coach has so much to offer and easily stands out on the road and at RV resorts with newer motor homes costing far more. RV shoppers would be hard pressed to find a better “bang for the buck” value. This coach is outstanding on many levels- exterior, interior, performance, and appearance.
This 2005 KINGSLEY COACH, including the SMART CAR CONVERTIBLE that fits in the HEATED GARAGE is priced at only $234,900 for BOTH VEHICLES. I am willing to meet with the new buyer to go over every aspect of the 2 units, including loading the Smart car, at my company where both units are in heated storage.
Final note: Please, not to be rude but, ABSOLUTELY NO calls, texts, emails or other inquiries from RV flippers, wholesalers, or other low-ballers. Please NO “tire kickers”, “nickel & dimers” or scammers. NO trades. Serious and well-qualified buyers ONLY! Let’s not waste each other’s time! Also, no calls from consignment companies attempting to offer their services. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
