Not enough room in the main bus, tow a second one. Why not? I bet there's no such thing as miles per gallon while towing. Gallons per mile.

No, I think the little bus is used to push the big bus.

The smaller engine will get better fuel economy and it has the larger vehicle parting the wind for aerodynamic goodness.

Looks like the bigger one is a tanker and refueling the shorty in mid parking lot....or diesel drafting at hyper speed.

I saw a Geo Metro toad years back with a sticker that said something like 'You'd be slow too if you had to push this big RV!"
