I just returned from Florida where I spoke at two events and shopped for a motorcoach. I’m happy to say that I found the right bus and put down a deposit on it. Photos below (I think you can click on the photos below to see larger versions).
If everything goes as planned (does it ever?), I should start living full-time on this rig starting March 16th… then WhereIsBen.com will live up to it’s name and chronicle my travels. I’m sure you won’t see all that many posts from me between now and March 16th because I’ll be busy dealing with all the details of the transition.
Very Nice! Sleek and shiny. What, no jacuzzi?
Now you have to collect some top notch bumperstickers….
Congrats, Ben! That ride rocks! When’s the bus-warming(?) party?
I’ll be driving my possenssions to the bus instead of the other way around, so I don’t know when I’d have a Colorado bus warming party. I might be able to bring the bus to PhotoshopWorld Miami though.
It looks amazing, really big inside too. But how will you find somewhere to park it each night? I can’t imagine finding anywhere to park a bus in London at short notice…
Wow, that’s a bus fit for a celebrity! So, where will the computer stuff go? Plenty of storage… lots of seating room… this is awesome!!!!!
Gosh Ben… Looks like you’ll be able to have seminars in there… congratulations my friend… Eddie
I don’t plan on taking the bus to London… I can park the bus at RV parks, campgrounds, truck stops, walmarts, BLM land and misc. areas around town. I’ll be towing a car behind it, so I can park the bus miles away from the area I want to visit and then drive my car in to town.
I’ll be replacing the two dining chairs with office chairs and I’ll mount my 23″ LCD monitor on a swing arm to the dining room table. It will be swung up against the windows when not in use and then swung out when I need to use it. My big color laser printer will fit in one of the lower kitchen cabinets on a pull out shelf that I can reach from the dining room table. The LCD will also act as an extra TV when not used for the computer.
I don’t plan to have seminars in my moving home… I did see a bus with a drop down screen and projector that would have made it nice to have seminars for 5-7 people.
looks pretty snazzy! congrats on the big purchase
Congratulations Ben, this is awsome.
Looks really nice.
Hope you get out West! We always have a place for you if you need to soak in a tub, and we can find somewhere to park the bus.
If you can’t get a boat, get a bus!
I should be hanging out in California starting in mid-September. I’m always happy to find a parking place an a good tub to soak in.
It’d be interesting to hear you discuss in a future blog entry (or did I miss a previous entry?) your motivation in moving from a land-home to a roving-home.
I was just thinking of doing such a post… I’ll see if I can find some time next week.
You sold the house!!
If my Arizona property pans out you’ll have a place to visit.
Congratulations on the new bus, it looks very nice.
Hope to see you in the near future.
It was a treat to stumble upon your site this evening. Glad to hear that things are going well for you. If you’re in the Carmel area, be sure to look up Kelly and I. We’d love to catch up with you.
Amazing! It even includes a bed!
Where’s the shower room?
There’s a shower in the bathroom… you can see it right after the last shot of the kitchen… it’s a quarter-round glass thing on the right of the shot.
Great looking rig! But what – no slide outs? I figured since you’d be full timing it you’d have at least 2 slideouts! Even without them it looks awesome.
Looks like it’s time for you to get a map of where all the Flying Js’ are (overnight stops while on the road – that and Wal-Mart).
Slide outs are overly useful in 5th wheels because they actually use the space to improve the floor plan (mainly because they make the floorplan absolutely useless when the slides are not extended). In motorhomes, they need to keep the floorplan useful regardless if the slides are extended or not and therefore they are not essential in my mind since all you’re gaining is some empty space with little benfit floorplan-wise.
Having slides would have almost doubled the cost of the motorcoach and I feel it’s just not worth it for me.
A lot people pass the duty to qualified writers because they miss the talent to compose a satisfactory paper about this topic so the reason why customers need to use plagiarism check, but such customers like creator don’t do that. Thank you for the information
