Is bigger better ? Largest motor home in the world




Itís 58.5 feet long, a double decker, articulated coach from Germany. It was in the 1997 Guinness Book of Records as the largest street-registered motor home in the world. And itís for sale!
Only twelve were ever produced. This is number one and the only survivor.
144 people could fit in it when it was built in 1975. It has been remodeled and changed into an ďAction Mobile.Ē
As they describe it, ďIn the upper deck, a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen with a dining area, a guest berth and a bathroom are situated. In the lower deck, next to the driver and eight passenger seats, a multi functional conference area and an exclusive reception and bar are situated. The rear part is used as a garage and material storeroom.Ē It has tons of luxurious features.
Some of the suggested activities that can be done with this bus are: traveling, inviting guests, giving galas, making shows and presentations. Under the huge sun sail (see below), you can receive guests and on the large video wall you can present videos, photographs and much more. You can also use it for falconry since the roof terrace gives you a great vantage point!
The interior has leather upholstery, some walls are leather and fabric covered, and more. It is modern looking, top of the line.
No price is given. You have to contact them for information. We can only guess that it is beyond the reach of most RVers. In fact, it is marketed more to a corporate buyer. Plus, shipping it to North America would add thousands more. Additionally, it would not even fit in most RV parks or resorts. Itís not for the average buyer Ė thatís for sure! I just wonder if Larry could put a hing between 2 or even 3 mft and make it work. IF anyone can Larry can .

That's just not me.
I think if I had money to burn, I would be satisfied with the new Tiffin Motorhome (Breeze).

BUT, we don't have money to burn. Always count your blessings.

It can't be all that bad, it does have a One-piece Molded Fiberglass Roof Cap and Fantasic Fan in the shower.

It sounds good...but you know I'm just thinking ...if it doesn't come with a driver and a maid/cook ...then I am not paying that kind of money for it Plus shipping to get it here.

Since the add did not mention those 2 items I will just stick with dreaming about a 5th wheel Scamp or some other egg.

Happy Camping

I'd guess that this is a pitch to middle eastern millionaires, where falconry is a popular sport among the well oiled.

I guess you'd have to pass on the forest service campgrounds.

Let's see them turn around on that beach! My little 13 ft is just right for me but that is quite a rig.
