Glaval Entourage

Glaval Entourage

The Glaval Entourage is the premier shuttle bus built on the Ford F-550 chassis. With a maximum capacity of up to 33 passengers including the driver, the Glaval Entourage can handle much larger groups than a standard 15 passenger bus or 15 passenger vans. Another popular configuration with the Entourage is what is known as the 33/29RS.

With two rear fold up seats in the back of the bus, this configuration can carry 33 passengers or 29 passengers with rear storage when the two rear fold up seats are folded up. This particular version of the Entourage is our most the most popular 33 passenger sold at Carpenter Bus due to its versatility. The Entourage is very popular with tour and charter companies as well as university athletic teams and churches. This bus can be configured with ADA compliant wheelchair stations to accommodate those who have difficulty traveling due to being wheelchair bound.

The front design of the bus is one of the most aerodynamic of all larger, full-size buses. The full view curb side window offers improved visibility and safety. Glaval used their famous “Steel-Safe” framing system which features 1-1/2″ square galvanized steel tubing for the structure of the Entourage.

Another unique feature of this bus is the in-house undercoating that is done at the factory where units are sealed with expanding spray foam which reduces road noise. In addition to the sidewalls, the roof also receives spray foam insulation to additionally decrease the road noise which makes for a much more enjoyable riding experience for your passengers.
