When Do You Need a Commercial Drivers License to Drive a Prevost for Sale?

Monday, August 26th, 2013

A lot of people wonder if they need a special license to buy a Prevost for sale and drive it home so they can convert it to a motor home. The very short answer is no. The longer answer is as long as the commercial markings and signage are removed, and you don’t take 15 or more of your closest friends along for the ride, you don’t need a CDL to transport your Prevost for sale home.

Bigger Than a Bread Box

You might have noticed that your new Prevost for sale is not your typical RV. However, once it has been converted to an RV it is technically no longer a bus, so you are not required to have a special license to drive it as far as the federal government is concerned. State laws will vary from not requiring anything more than a regular driver’s license to needing a special endorsement or two.

While you might think you need special training, even that is not required in most cases. The Federal Motor Carrier Bureau, which is the agency responsible for monitoring Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) programs, does have some very specific rules outlining circumstances in which you must have a CDL to drive a large vehicle.

Not a Sports Car

When driving a large Class A motor home like a converted Prevost for sale, it is important to remember that, even though you are driving with your standard Class C driver’s license, this is not a sports car or the family sedan. Special care needs to be taken to keep you, your passengers, and others safe at all times.

Even though a CDL is not required, you are still driving a commercial sized vehicle. While it’s easier than you might think to drive, you must never forget that it takes longer to slow down when braking. This means that you must allow for even greater distance between you and the vehicle in front of you no matter what speed you are driving.

Allowing safe distances for your Class A Prevost for sale motor home to enter highways is as important as following distances. Your RV does not have the same acceleration as the family sedan, so be sure to allow yourself enough distance to safely merge on to highways.

States Get Into the Action

Even though the federal government does not require states to issue CDLs for Class A RVs, some states such as California may require that you obtain a special endorsement for your Class C license in order to operate your RV. States that do have requirements for special endorsements generally base the need for those requirements on the same standards as the federal requirements for a CDL.

When it comes to special endorsements, you are required to follow the laws of your home state (where your license is issued) and not the states you will be driving in. So if you come from a state that does not have any special requirements, and you visit Connecticut, which does have special requirements, you do not have to do anything other than obey Connecticut’s traffic laws.

Enjoy traveling around the country in your very own Prevost for sale. For more information about finding a Prevost for sale visit or call 877-277-7253.

Excellence from a Prevost for Sale

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

4545-1998PrevostH3-45-1Prevost’s history of excellence continues with an improved redesign of their vehicles HVAC systems. Prevost engineers and R&D teams continually strive to improve and refine Prevost buses in order to maintain their position as a leading manufacturer of high quality buses.

No matter where your travels take you from inner city traffic to the wide open roads of the American west passenger comfort is the key to how good an experience is had by all concerned. A well designed HVAC system that is properly installed and maintained on a Prevost for sale does more than make a trip comfortable it eliminates adverse health issues that are caused by poor indoor air quality.

Creating a comfortable environment for a large number of passengers in a relatively small space is a real test of engineering vision and skill. The Prevost Car Company of Quebec, Canada has been doing just that for more than 70 years. Their expertise in producing buses and motor homes that provide the highest level of comfort is second to none.

Being the best is not good enough for Prevost engineers in their constant quest to build better HVACR systems. Engineers found that existing wire mesh air filters that were continuously exposed to road dirt and dust were not doing an optimal job of maintaining good quality indoor air.

Once the issue was identified the research and development (R&D) team at Prevost designed a new state-of-the-art climate control system that provides heating and cooling with a sufficient supply of filtered air in all weather conditions. The R&D team’s primary goal was to capture a higher percentage of airborne pollutants without restricting the adequate air flow required to maintain the world class climate control system.

The system works by drawing fresh air in from the outside as needed and interior temperature is controlled by a six-stage electronic energy management control system. The system is designed to provide easy access with the heater and evaporator cores mounted in the baggage bay. Ease of access ensures that routine maintenance is performed more easily.

A second baggage by holds the condenser core which is mounted on hinges to provide access to both motors and axial fans and the system’s compressor is mounted in the rear engine compartment where it is directly driven by the engine through V-belts. There are twin axial condenser exhaust fans which are capable of running from 220 C.F.M to 2700 C.F.M maintaining 2200 C.F.M in heat mode.

This rate of flow produces between 400 – 500 pi/m face velocity at the filter with 15% of fresh air mixed with the returned air. The air passes through a Prematron electrostatic air filter and then trough cooling and heating coils before being returned to the cabin through grills located below the windows on both sides of the vehicle.

Permatron’s exclusive Accumulator Chamber design enables the air filter to have a high dirt holding capacity of 130 grams without restricting air flow. Independent tests using industry standards show the filter in this application has an average efficiency of 78%. The filters are permanent, washable and built to outlast the system on which they are installed. Prevost’s filter maintenance schedule includes monthly rinsing with water stands up to regular cleaning and does not require replacement.

Prevost’s own reputation for reliability and innovation dictate that products used in their buses are manufactured to the same high standards that Prevost employs. Permatron’s own track record of 53 years of proven performance has made it the logical choice for Prevost for more than 20 years.

Excellence is the hallmark of a Prevost for sale. Find out more about how a Prevost for sale is right for you by visiting or call 877-277-7253.

New PRIME Energy Management System on a Prevost Bus for Sale

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

The holy grail of energy is Free Energy, which means energy that costs nothing to produce and is the result of another process. Wind and solar are great examples of free energy because there is no cost to produce them. When it comes to vehicles particularly a Prevost bus for sale they alternatives like wind and solar are not currently being considered but something called negative torque is.

Before we get to how Prevost’s New Prime Energy Management System on a Prevost bus for sale works we have to understand what “Negative Torque” is and before that we have to know what torque is. Torque is a measure of force based on twisting or turning such as you would do with a wrench on a bolt.

Prevost bus

Prevost Bus

On a vehicle such as a Prevost bus for sale moving forward the energy created by the wheels turning the axle is measured as torque and is the product of the engine turning the drive shaft and propelling the bus forward. The turning of the wheels produces torque.

The wheels on a bus turning forward produce torque. When the brakes are applied the force used to slow the bus is Negative Torque and since the engine is not using any fuel to slow the bus the energy from the Negative Torque is Free because it is the by product of another process and cost nothing to produce.

Prevost has developed a system to capture this Free energy created from Negative Torque and convert it to electricity which is used to help run the bus’ systems without using any additional fuel. A Prevost bus for sale equipped with the New PRIME Energy Management System will have a lower cost to operate because thing like air conditioning, interior lights and entertainment systems can be run on free electricity.

The system works by using the energy created when the bus brakes or decelerates to create compressed air which is used to generate electricity. That free electricity is then stored in very efficient, maintenance free Absorbed Glass Mat batteries (AGM). AGM batteries are far more durable than regular lead acid batteries and can last up to four times longer.

Absorbed Glass Mat batteries on a Prevost bus for sale are designed to take repeated deep discharges and when combined with a battery equalizer that monitors the State of Charge (SOC) of the batteries the risk of overcharging is eliminated and the batteries life is greatly extended.

Thanks to the systems intelligent design the batteries are able to help deliver greater fuel efficiency to the Prevost bus for sale and lower overall operating costs without compromising the comfort of the passengers. Tests have shown a  fuel savings of 2% or more which over the service life of a Prevost bus for sale can amount to thousands of dollars in savings.


Free Electricity produced by Negative Torque and stored in state of the art Absorbed Glass Mat batteries is another reason a Prevost Bus For Sale is a great idea. For more information about how to buy a Prevost bus for sale visit or call 877-277-7253.
