    Bikes appear to have 2.6" tires. Everyone knows 2.4 are the best.

    Nonsensical. They also appear to be merely strapped on to the downtube

    What's wrong with this picture??

    The composition is wonky.

    Also, probably should have went with a slower shutter speed to allow for a much lower ISO.

    The rims on the lower bike don't quite match the paint on the RV. A bit of a color clash there.

    No slides or bat-wing awning on the motor home and It'd be nice if that bike rack had some way of lowering so you didn't have to climb up there. Having to twist your handle bars like that would get old pretty fast.

    Looks really cool though. Most people I see out there with those off-road rigs are parked where you can get a normal RV anyway.

    I bet with that high COG, it sux to drive out west where it can get super windy.

    Are there leveling jacks?

    This bus is too narrow. It is a bus instead of a expedition truck.

    Yeah, that's why the yellow bike has so many spokes, though I'm not sure how that happened. Also looks like the whole pivot bearing is missing!

    They have a vid of the bus edition in action on their website. No sign of a RV edition vid, so you're probably right.


    It features in this video as well.

    And who needs grips? And how do the brake leavers and shifter mount to the bar without wrapping around it?

    27.5" wheels. Shame.

    P.S. Both bikes have the same number of spokes.

    I guess if the thing is as slow as this thing looks, you don't have to worry about wind on the highway ripping the satellite dish off the roof.

    Hey, why go 4x4 when you can have 8x8 with an Action Mobil Desert Challenger! Yeah, apparently all eight wheels are drive wheels. And this one isn't imaginary! Built on a chassis originally designed to carry missiles, it carries 660 gallons of fuel, 630 gallons of water, and only weighs 33 U.S. tons (66,000 pounds). What more could one ask for? Available for only $1.75 million. That may sound like a lot, but I've often seen RV makers like Prevost display $2.5 MM campers at RV shows.

    I was about to order a Desert Challenger, but they don't have one in a color I like.

    Action Mobil

    Check out the Interior Designs and Technical Specs links. Surprisingly elegant interior for what it is. Al sort of bike storage option, motorized or not. Even an option to store your small SUV.

    Is there an option for gun turrets? A few 50 cal machine guns would appeal to a wider audience. And I hope the ride is nice and quiet on the highway for RV campground hopping.
