Bus Motorhomes

Post by ScaniaGrenda »

With the amount of buses left, right and in the middle that are being converted to motorhomes, I figured I'd create a thread where we can track some buses that have now given up the service live and have now been converted into Motorhomes. If the former operator who owned said bus formally can be identified, they will be added here too.

Without further delay, here we go!

A Mercedes-Benz OH1418 Custom Coaches 516 formally belonging too Alstonville Bus Service & Northern Rivers Tours as 4633 MO has shown up for sale on Gumtree as a Motorhome bus registered as XQ88FW at Nerang QLD.

Ex Polleys “Platypus” is for sale on Gumtree and Facebook. Now located in Childers QLD and looks to be a very nicely done motor home. Still in Polleys colours too.

I should also note that this was the first bus produced by P&D Coachworks in 1990, on a Hino RG197K chassis.
