Default Ultimus Prime 2 story Motorcoach with Helicoptor launch pad.

This video actually features three incredible luxury coaches!

This fellow in Australia has quite the luxury coach he spent over $800,000 to do his convert- It has it all! solar, upstairs balcony. I would say the only negative was the ceilings where low because it has a second story.

The second coach featured in this video is in Germany. It looks like other countries are really taking to the Luxury coach lifestyle.

The double decker is a Neoplan. I drove one in socal in the late 80's. It was a studio unit with room for actors up top & film equip with tracks down below.
Also looked at a unit that was used as a tour bus on Cape Kennedy. It seated 107 as I recall. The problem was that it was about 48' long & I think 9' wide. Had dual front steer axles.
There was a fulltimer that purchased a converted bus & then as I recall had it completely rebuilt because of problems. He documented everything that was fixed to the N th degree. I think he was a retired engineer out of Silicon Valley. I'm sure there is a ton of info on the net on him, if someone is interested in Neoplans.

Gordon that is interesting. I had no idea what kind of bus it was but I thought it was intriguing. Thanks for sharing some knowledge.

That's a pretty cool setup. I wonder if he moved to Austrailia or hes just touring around with a while?

Looks like they also bought a boat and are now taking travel by sea. Adventurous couple indeed.

A helicopter? He just needs a boat too and he is set. Travel by land, air and sea. You could get anywhere with that setup all in one.
