In 1988, a 2-axle 35-foot version and a 3-axle 45-foot version of the Model 15 were introduced. The introduction of the 45ft was the first in the industry. Spearheaded by development for the entertainer coach industry, the competition took an additional 3 years to introduce their own 45ft coaches. In 1989, smooth sides became an option. The Eagle had long ago became popular as a conversion shell for motorhomes and entertainer’s coaches and this market segment was not neglected. Over 3,000 Eagles have been built in Texas, mostly for the North American market, though some were exported to Australia, Chili & Taiwan.
