FUSO Motorhome

Post by vernbale »

I was laying over between runs when i saw this mighty motorhome pull in behind me so i quickly jumped out to take a few shots.
You dont see too many motorhomes with duel tandem axles, definately would need a HR licence to drive this. :D

This BIG Motorhome looks like to me, a converted bus from a truck chassie.

I don't know what LCC's policy is on large vehicles parking in metered spaces is but in Hobart as long as Bay #2 was in credit it wouldn't matter if bay #3 was expired. After all large vehicles are somewhat limited to as where they can park near a CBD. i don't think it would fit into the Paterson Street Car Parks :roll: .

The wings on the front look like the wings from New Zealand Motorhome & Caravan Assocation, don't know if caravan clubs have them in Australia?

They're intended for trucks that have a low deck height. There are a handful of them in Perth and I think they're direct imports.

Anyway, here are 2 images I found on the net of 8x4 low profile trucks:

They call the Mitsubishi Fuso 8x4 the Super Great in the Asia-Pacific,Middle East and South America region and in New Zealand its called the Mitsubishi Fuso 8x4 is called Shogun.I`d say the 8x4 chassis would of come from New Zealand.The Super Great or Shogun had 12 engine options and 7 gearbox options.

Could be an NZ chassis, and probably an NZ motorhome body - no one else builds vehicles that ugly. :twisted:
