Yea go big or go home for sure, yea the neighbours are ok, the one across the street let me use his driveway and next door think its great as it blocks the heat in the afternoon from the sun into there house. Yes the Cadillac would fit in there for sure, but I would rather drive it, or let the wife do it when we travel, we plan to only travel from town to town and stay for weeks, sometimes months if the place is nice, then work in the back of the bus and tour around in the Caddy with the Camper in tow to see places we may not take the bus, should be a hoot!

My God that is massive.   On the one hand I would say that must cost a fortune. But on the other hand I assume the resale market for those cannot be that much. It is like airstream trailers the bigger they are the cheaper they are.

Yea Its was Cheap, we'd been looking for a while and they averaged 10k to 20k, but as I bought it from the Bus Lines here, so serviced regularly, and as they were selling 30 of them they were $5,500 each, I bought two for $8,800 and sold one within 24 hours later for $5,500, so we got ours for $3,300 absolute bargain, runs great he took us for a drive for an hour in this very hilly area drove better than my wife's Toyota.

Have only seen a couple here in Australia converted into a Motorhome so far, but now the Bus lines sold 30 of them, I expect to see a few more on the road hauling all sorts of things. We love it and can't wait to finish the conversion.

He only had a few left at the time, and the two deal was as best I could get, a hell of a bargain, people can't believe what I paid.
And yes this bus travels beautifully in the freeway and in suburbs, the real wheels are mechanical auto steer and drive off the turntable, so this is was a bonus, as you would be amazed where these things can go.
