Welcome Village Coachworks!

We’re thrilled to introduce the newest member of the Village family of businesses, Village Coachworks! Coachworks is, in many ways, an extension of Village Coach, which leases high-end premium entertainer coaches to recording artists, comedians, athletes, and more. The company was founded in November 2022, and Village purchased and began renovating a facility in Valley Center, Kansas. This facility, with its shop and paint booth, will serve as the business’s home.

As of March 2023, the Coachworks team began working on their first motorcoach conversion in the new shop! The establishment of Village Coachworks signifies an exciting new chapter for the Village family, reflecting their commitment to growth and innovation in the Entertainer Coach industry. Entertainer coaches differ significantly from seated charter coaches. They arrive as bare “shells” from Prevost and then undergo a detailed interior build that can take up to four months to complete. In the conversion process, we add all sorts of custom features like tile floors, TVs and electronics, bathrooms, cabinetry, and custom upholstery. Previously, Village partnered with Integrity Interiors to conduct these conversions. However, after Integrity’s owner sold the company to an entertainer coach firm, Village decided to hire some Integrity craftsmen and manage the conversions internally.

In addition to converting new Entertainer fleet vehicles for Village Coach, Coachworks is also equipped to handle body repairs for the company’s fleet. The inaugural project at Village Coachworks is the conversion of a pearly white Prevost X345 coach, aptly named “Betty,” in honor of the late Betty White.

We take immense pride in ensuring that Village’s unwavering commitment to providing the very best travel experiences for our customers will extend to every aspect of the Entertainer Coaches that will be added to our fleet in the coming years!
