Default Any info on LEGEND Conversions

Hi,
I am looking at purchasing a Legend conversion garage unit motorhome with a MB motor. I have searched the web looking for information on these units but I can not seem to find many. I found this website for the dealer :

Becks Custom Coach & Trailer

The seller said its the same as united specialties. Can anyone confirm this or help with any info as to the quality of this conversion. It looks really nice but I would like some info. Thanks !!

Well, I don't know anything about Legends. I went to that link and they look pretty nice. The construction looks very similar to my United Specialties. United Specialties went out of business in about 2009 I believe. I visited their factory mid '09 and it was located in White Pigeon, Mich. Your link for Beck's has a link to Legend's home page. I went there and their site only says they make trailers. There is nothing about truck conversions. Odd. It says they are located in Eureka, Mich. Googler puts that 138 miles from White Pigeon, Mich. So, I don't know what, if any, connection there is between United Specialties and Legend. I don't think I've ever seen a United Specialties coach with that molded one piece rear cap. But I haven't seen that many United's. I have a flier for their rigs from 2009 that I'll check to see if they started putting that one piece rear cap on (I have the flier in my rig and won't be going to my rig for a bit, it's in my storage condo 30 minutes from home). I do like the info that Beck's shows for Legend construction (don't know where they got it since the Legend site doesn't say they make coaches). Looks pretty well made.

Thanks for the info. The unit im looking at is a 2007 ( sorry should of stated that) I have been looking at them for a long time and it looks to have all the options of a renegade, show hauler, haulmark ect... That's why I was trying to get info on the actually build quality. I talked to a local dealer and they said they are nice coaches middle of road build obviously not a chariot or ikon but right there with the rest of them.

The devil is always in the details. Try to get into the walls and check the welds ... quick and dirty? or good beads.

Look at the "components". Are they "good ones" or the "cheap ones". What kind of wiring does it have? Is the wiring and plumbing well supported? Is the wiring well bundled? or does it look like a birds nest? Crawl inside as much as you can, does it look like all routing of the plumbing wiring was thought out all butchered after the build was well started.

Good luck!

$200k does seem a bit high. Have you seen the Hawk Engineering site? He's got a very nice garage coach for sale there. $135k I think.

Wait, the garage coach they have listed there shows $146k. But there is no info about it. Other than a 515 h/b motor with 12 speed. That sounds more like a Detroit motor than a MB?

Oh wow, looks like you bought it: Best place to get a cover for my class c

Now, first thing, don't call it a "C" or even a "super C." It's a "Truck Conversion."

Very excited for you. Let's get some pictures up and info about it.
