I believe that most states limit the length of a single vehicle to 45' with an exemption for certain agencies such as transit authorities.

If you could register the front half as a vehicle and then register the back half as a trailer then you would be a "combination" and good in most states up to 60'-65' depending on the state. Don't think that you are likely to pull that off though....

There is a thread here somewhere from a couple in Australia with a beauty articulated machine. That's all I know but it is sweet.

Thx...they are huge though...you'd need more than 40 acres to turn the beast around...

Maybe you could put a smart car in the second section so you can go shopping.

Do they even put reverse in those articulated buses?

I got really excited about those articulated buses when I first saw them. The licensing requirements alone were enough to convince me otherwise. Besides, where would you park that beast? You're not going to a camp ground. It's more likely you'd frequent Walmart parking lots. I live on a ranch and I don't have enough room to turn one of those around on my place. Still, it would make the most badazz skoolie for skoliepalooza.

As long as we are getting crazy, lets completely lose our minds.
Phuck it, put a swimming pool in there too.

Those have got to be some bugers to work on. The ones I'd seen were only doubles and that seemed amazing at the time.
