If you have a personal Volvo camper and a sleek low merc that'll go under it then why not?!

James bond travels in this volvo camper attacked my his enemies and the camper catches fire then the merc shoots off from under the camper... cool

But the bus needs to be on jacks before the car can come out.

I want one...

It would be a better option considering rise in land prices...
Atleast you can be always on the move..

How about an Indian version..An AshokLeyland Bus with a Storm inside???

it's not MAN. it's a US based company wich makes the basic coaches. the RV builders use this as the base and make it to this.

New BBC headline: "Jkdas revolutionalizes public/private transport. Drives Merc inside Ashok Leyland lorry - and still saves petrol ! "

Next BBC headline: "President APJ Kalam bestows the Bharat Ratna on Jkdas for this unique achievement and being an Indian while at it ! "

Seen these pics but not sure if its on the forum. Man that SLK is awesome. I love that deep red color *drooling*. The interiors of the bus are very luxurious too. Shows that there's no end to it when you have the moolah.

Is the car just placed on the ramp or secured properly to avoid it getting tossed around and scratched?
