I watched that film. It was good and proper entertaining drama! The writers crafted a wonderfully quirky family. The one thing that kept getting me was about the bus, though. These people were living off-the-grid with hardly any income yet they were able to pay for enough diesel to get that bus across the country and back? That was a bit of a plot hole.

They seemed to have had everything else figured out and the wife's family had money so I let it go. The hum drum name of Steve for the bus was a little odd.

That was an interesting bus to be sure.....

On another movie-related note, there was a red and white bus in the movie "RV" that seemed to always end up where Robin Williams & company were parked..... looked it up and it was an old school GMC 6-71..... not a skoolie but still a really neat looking bus.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

Building off your tangent, one of our customers who comes into our restaurant has a really similar bus to that. You can find em on instagram as "flexibleadventures" or "#itsa47"



It's a sweet conversion and I know they occasionally lurk through this board. They briefly talked about making a build thread, but I think it's low on their priority list.
