    LOOK AT THIS RAD BUS! HOLY CRAP!

    I've been looking at buying a luxury motor home recently and what do I see when I was mentally self-harming by reading the Daily Mail? This bad boy!

    * 45 foots!
    * $2m millions dollars!
    * What appears to be a full shower!
    * RGB Coach underlighting!
    * 605 horsepower Cummins x15 engine with 1950 ft lbs torque and a VIP (it doesn't say who)

    Would you live in this rad bus?

    Would totally live in it. But I'd prefer an overland vehicle.

    No, the planet is dying and the rich and privileged should be doing something about that rather than wasting money on narcissistic toys.

    Imagine having a $2M home that could be destroyed by someone pulling out in front of you or stolen.

    Would be something for band tours though.

    I'd have to start a popular 80s hair metal band first.

    There is a growing trend of people converting vans to live in. So that looks like luxury.

    Looks nice, but not sure if i would live in it because i would want to explore the world and driving that monster around could be tricky

    My old boss used to have one of these. Problem is they are fine for somewhere like the states where roads are wide and less bendy. he said in the UK it was a nightmare by the virtue that anywhere nice you would want to take it to stay would be, by its very nature, only accessible by small country roads.

    Plus the majority of UK sites wont allow RVs this big to stay there either and most dont have enough electric feed so you end up having to run your generator.

    He used to take it to Europe as well. He said things were better there for using one but still not perfect.

    Looks pretty cheap and tacky to me.

    I'm guessing this is what the New Money plebs buy, if they cannot afford a decent yacht....?
    I mean, $2mil would barely buy you a berth at Marina di Capri!

    As someone who is currently converting a LWB Merc Sprinter, while the luxury would be nice, as @Greebo says something this big would be a nightmare to use in the UK! :p

    It would need a commercial license too, wouldn't it?
