Shouldn't there be seat belts for the bar stools?!

Good question Richard. Maybe trying to avoid the B-J freak show - but hey, if that generates a couple or three more mil one would wonder why you wouldn't hang out for another six weeks. Or perhaps sanity has set in and he realizes that the one that sold went for far more than it should have?

You are right Neil.

In my youth I'm sure there were several cowboy bars that should of had seat belts on the stools . It would seem like after a bunch of beers that bar was moving (for me at least).

Seems like there are a lot of pictures of the bar but none of the rest of the interior toward the back. Not much of a written description either. Does it have a bed?

Hi Steve,
This particular vehicle has been here in the Valley for several years. I was able to go inside at a car show 6 or 7 years ago. As I remember it was set up strictly as a party coach. I don't remember there being any sleeping quarters. It did look like it would be a lot of fun to own. Talk about drawing a crowd. There was a line to go inside of it. Ron

Sounds like your kind of rig, eh? Who needs to sleep anyway, especially at a Calif. Streamers rally

I saw this coach around North Hollywood for years parked on the street. (Burbank bl East of Lankershim for the locals.) Matter of fact I tried to buy it 8/9 years ago when he pulled up in it at a restaraunt I was at. He said no.

Hi Joe and welcome to the group. I gotta tell you finding a used FB is not easy since they have not been around long but keep looking and you'll find one.

One of the main advantages of an Airstream is that because of their shape they slip through the wind unlike the white boxes. Trucks won't be an issue.

No need - there's air bags retrofitted into the stool seat pads - and they also double as whoopee cushions for a little barroom fun when it's parked.
