Learn More About Buses: Prevost's H3-45

Prevost’s original tour bus, the H3-45 strives to blend a timeless design with the most up-to-date technological features. The H Series was first introduced in 1985, but the bus has been constantly renovated since then, with a complete redesign in 2009 and many updates in the 2010s.
