    I thought that too, but the outside has hinges that come down and the windows are behind them. I looked.

    It's not actually a garbage truck conversion, although it does look like one ;) ;) We've talked about these often on RV.net. There is a company that makes several models on these extreme RVs. They can cover rough terrain and go for weeks without hook ups.

    That is just WRONG on so many levels. However, I do remember that thing.

    The craftsmanship inside is georgeous...but it's still a garbage truck. They aren't made for highway speeds so it's top speed is probably something on the order of 45 MPH, maybe 50. That's the problem with city bus conversions, too. They have plenty of low speed torque, but very little top end speed.

    The guy/firm that did this conversion should go into Prevost bus conversions. He/they could make a lot more $$'s because there is a bigger market. I know there is a customer out there for this kind of thing, but in my mind's eye, that was a waste, pardon the pun, of some really great work and design aesthetic.

    Where are the windows on the outside? The interior pics show windows but then the exterior windows don't? Am I missing something? :confused3

    There are different models. If you go back and look at the link I sent you can see pictures of all of them.

    That kitchenette area is not in the same rv as that sofa across from the computer desk under the bed.


    (edit)...I just re-read what this said.....what the heck planet am I from? Is that the secret code again?
