There is a guy in Sellersburg IN that has a full size bus and turned a short bus into a trailer he pulls behind his big bus.

I wonder how many trailer campsites are going to allow this one to overnight?

We have been considering a 14 or 16 foot enclosed trailer to pull for our bikes but where am I going to park it. I already take up the entire campsite at most places around here in length.

Neat, maybe my short bus would be a good canidate for this treatment. It is missing the engine and trans. My bus pulling the short bus, lots of room, need some kids to fill it all up....

Pop a back end on the front and a trailer hitch an it would make a cool matching trailer. Now you can sleep 12.

A back on the front would work nice, but thinking some sort of aerodynamic looking nose cone.

Mobile machine shop in it might be nice too.

Aero nose on the front behind the big box would probably be a lesson in futility.
