You’ve watched the movies, seen what goes on in those fabulously decked out super star coaches, well, now’s your big chance to live like one! (Or you client’s!)
At least while concert tours are on hiatus.
When the coronavirus put touring on hold, it left Nashville based Hemphill Brothers’ luxury coaches gathering dust on the parking lot. And no money in the till.
With the company’s million-dollar motorhomes sitting idle, brothers Joel and Trent decided to rent out their entire fleet of 106 luxury motorhomes for non-celebs to use on summer road trips.

According to the Hemphill Brothers’ website, the interiors of all coaches are handmade and custom-designed, using top of the line materials such as leather, hardwood flooring, granite, marble and quartz. They also boast heated marble bathroom floors, an enhanced sound system, Apple TVs and powered blinds, so you can truly feel like a celeb on your RV roadtrip.
“Our coaches are truly someone’s home away from home,” Joey told Travel + Leisure. “We outfit the conversions with upscale materials to make it feel that way. We want them to feel safe and have all the comforts of their own home. Many times, we transport families, so configuring the bus to meet their needs is very important to us.”
Open Jaw wouldn’t call heated marble bathroom floors everyone’s home away from home, but with clients which include superstars like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Cher, we imagine it’s a staple.
The company's Star Coaches are large enough to fit the entire family, coming equipped with six bunks and a queen bed in the rear.
