    Volvo coach motorhome/hauler

    Posted in the "show me" thread but I might as well put up a thread of my own.

    I bought a 1989 Norwegian built bus on a Volvo chassis. It's got a 340hp mid engine, 7spd gearbox and was just a regular tourist coach full of seats hauling people when i bought it. I chose an older bus as it's cheaper to own when 30+ years old.

    Had to keep 10 seats and I wanted room for my rig in the rear. Other than that I wanted a decent sized shower, kitchen, dining tables and firm beds for 6 people.

      Today I finally got the rear doors done and the current rig test fitted inside.
      My next rig will be built strictly within the limits of what I can fit in the bus
      It's gonna get 40"s and portals, that's all I know yet. Click image for larger version

        That's the coolest fuckin thing ever. It looks like you have 20+ feet in front of the truck for living quarters too.

                  I've been really looking forward to this, so thank you very much for posting it. Awesome project. Keep it up!

                  I've called that number on the side a couple times for a tour of Norway in their single-family rig hauler, and they keep swearing they don't have that. Assholes.

                    Fawkin' righteous, man. I'm quite envious of what you've got going here. Digging the various bus builds on PBB and IBB. I can't wait to see this pull up to some trailheads.

                      Hauled the old girl to a few races this year. She's still not quite finished - doubt she'll ever be.
