Wow, unique is hardly adequate to describe...

Here's a bus conversion you won't see twice in one lifetime...

You have to admire the guy's ingenuity.

I've seen one with one bus on top, but not two. The buyer will have a unique piece.

AHHhhhhh - I'd just LOVE to see the looks of horror as THAT one pulls into one of those "high class", upscale RV resorts...

Well, although I would not desire to own it myself, I more respect for the builder of that unit than those people that have to post pictures or their new "glitter box" on the net.

Do it yourself type of people are my kind of people, and they have better "taste" than most. IMHO

Wow is right. that's just....Amazing is a really good word. I'm with Ed, it isn't pretty but there has been a lot of sweat and ingenuity put into that monster, gotta respect the people that did it, even if I wouldn't.

Somehow I think the reason it is sitting in the yard is because it won't fit under telephone loops, service drops, overpasses or anything else normally found hanging over the road.

He lists it at 13'4", the Fleetwood Revolution is listed at 12'11.8". Most roads should be 13'6', he's close.

i couldn't tell where he put access to the two VW bodies, or what purpose they serve except sleeping areas? i applaud the effort and appreciate the imagineering but personally think he could have raised the roof by adding to the walls more efficiently. every seat has a butt, though.... it's unique, but there are other buses out there similar to this one in outward appearance. i get the impression that this type gets parked out in the boonies for veeeerryyyy long periods of time.
