If your skoolie just isn't big enough.

You might consider this.

Re: If your skoolie just isn't big enough.

That is an AMAZING rig that I think would be an absolute blast. I'm just not sure how the DOT would feel about a 48 foot single vehicle. 40 feet is the number I keep seeing popping up though some states may go for 45 feet. At any rate you'd need to keep under the radar with that thing. Nice find!

Re: If your skoolie just isn't big enough.

The outside is dirty but it looks to be in really nice shape. How would you love to convert that and then pull up and dwarf the guy in his Prevost.

I think you'd be over the radar with that thing.

I noticed the 48 ft length also. I think in CA, after 40 ft, there are more restictions as to where you can go and maybe license. I think it has more sq feet than the condo I lived in.

you could put a fire pole in that thing and slide from the upper story down to the ground floor.

Re: If your skoolie just isn't big enough.

I remember being down in Florida almost 12 years ago when they still ran them things. The AC in them cooled it down pretty good downstairs but upstairs it wasn't all that good. An elevator would have been nice cause then all the older people could have went upstairs instead of sitting downstairs complaining they were too cold.

As for owning one of them. You'd have to be richer than the Prevost guy just to keep all the parts working correctly. I'm sure there is a very good reason Kennedy replaced them buses with buses half the size.
