Pulham’s Coaches of Bourton-on-the-Water has added a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with an extended Ilesbus Renaissance conversion. It seats 16.
The minicoach is finished to a high specification. Its seats are trimmed in two-tone leather and they come with drop-down tables, magazine nets and wood veneer armrests. A powered passenger plug door is fitted, with LEDs in step edges.
A large rear boot has been enabled by the extension. Other fittings include a courier seat, double-glazed panoramic windows, an additional windscreen above the OEM fitting, a fridge, a DVD player with a monitor, LED lights to the roof and suede interior trim.
A 12kW roof-mounted air-conditioning unit ducts to passenger service units on the underside of luggage racks. An additional 5kW air-conditioning unit is fitted in the dash. Heating is via perimeter radiators that are linked to a diesel-fired heater booster.
On the exterior of the Pulham’s minicoach, Ilesbus has fitted a body kit including a new front bumper design, and a coach-style rear.
Ilesbus has provided a three-year bodywork warranty. It complements a chassis warranty of identical duration from Mercedes-Benz.
