The Flyer Industries D800 was the successor to the Western Flyer Coach D700A and featured a redesigned front and large rectangular side windows. The 35 foot version had one less side window between the front and rear doors. A 30 foot version was offered but never built.

The D800 was succeeded by the D800B, which used a transversely mounted engine and a V-drive transmission instead of a longitudinally mounted engine and a T-drive transmission. The D800B also omitted the scoop above the rear window.
