Do that crash test with a real motorhome and see what is left of it,
just don't hit any walls with your bus and you will be fine, I would still get a flat nose

the school bus crash test are even better, dog nose or flat nose your squashed period...kids might be okay if they don't break all frontal bones on the back of the seat in front of them

also you have to hit something that weighs more than you to transfer all that energy

I have two flat front buses and this was a bus. I don't care about RVs.

The dog nose test that I saw seem to do better than this, but no question that you will be in a world of hurt.

How about a bus demo derby.


Makes me kind of sad. So many good parts getting wrecked.

Agreed, but they are entertaining to watch! Have you seen the figure 8 races?

I can't stand watching these. They do them locally, and in one our county sheriff fell out and was run over by his own bus.
