Holy Mother of HUGE.

These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling, And took their wages, and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.

Looks like a school bus and a UPS truck had a kid.

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.

Talking

It is an interesting approach to an RV / toy hauler that eliminates the trailer and the speed limit that comes with it. There is a photo of it with a jeep in the bed and a pair of Quads
Up top. It has plenty of power and top speed. They opened up a beautiful shop to go
Into production on these beasts in Southern California, but the economy tanked at about
The same time , so they pulled the plug.

In looking at the Green Bus, that rear bumper is in a fixed position, I'd have to say. The
Lowest steps look to be mounted with rubber type blocks for deflection.
I like the Bus/Van body style, and appreciate the amount of work involved in the project. I
Would have done things a little differently, but it is nice to see this UNIMOG which has
Been here for years, but not seen around the community, it seems.
I always liked the " park it and walk to the back " feature of a van, and the sheer volume
Here is enticing. It is well on its way to being a great camper-van, and it'll be interesting
To see what the future holds for this one.
I'd love to get my hands on it and give it a go, if you want to donate it to a good cause...

So just to give this a bump, did we ever learn the fate of this truck?
